Grand Palladium Hotel Group, which manages two hotels in Montego Bay, has undergone a thorough refurbishment of Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa.
The ambitious $27.5 million project includes the refurbishment of 537 suites, as well as various common areas such as the lobby, one of its show-cooking restaurants, and one of its most iconic bars.
New room upgrades
The newly 537 refurbished rooms of Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa are available after reopening at the beginning of the year.
Of these there are two new categories that stand out in 48 suites with sea views: 40 Superior Junior Suite Private Pool Ocean View and 8 Superior Suite Private Pool Oceanfront View. Surrounded by vegetation, these swim-up suites offer a private pool and terrace which are fully equipped with seating and a wooden pergola.
In the Superior Junior Suite Private Pool Ocean View, the pool is 86 sq ft. and the terrace is 161 sq ft.; and the Superior Suite Private Pool Oceanfront View is now the largest in the entire hotel, featuring a 161 sq ft. pool and terrace fully furnished with a dining room.
This room category has a private living room with a balcony, a larger bedroom, and a relaxation area that includes a chaise lounge and a large glass window that overlooks the ocean.
Energy efficiency and technology have also played an important role. All rooms have energy-saving systems with sensors for light and air conditioning and the swim-up pools are heated through an efficient system that uses heat pumps.
The refurbishment highlights some of the hotel’s most emblematic spaces. Among them is The Infinity Saloon Bar, the meeting point of Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa with spectacular 180º views of the Caribbean Sea, as well as shows and live music.
Its open-air terrace now has elegant awnings and lounge-style furniture with sofas and large armchairs, perfect for resting while sipping delicious cocktails. In this area, black and white stripes in the furniture fabrics combine perfectly with the tropical touch of the mural in the bar decorated with the image of the national bird – the Hummingbird.
In the lobby, further enhancements of the English colonial style were made to the solid wood and furniture. The reception has been updated with white treillage lattices and mirrors that match perfectly with the bold black lamps installed in the area.
In the culinary end, the MoBay show-cooking, open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, has increased its capacity to accommodate up to a total of 286 diners.
Divided into four areas by screens, the space now has two new food stations to offer a greater variety of dishes and products. The design is marked by vegetation, mixed fabrics, and green, black, and light tones.
