Jamaica is on my bucket list and I can’t wait until the day I can mark it off my list. Just today I got word that one of my favorite resorts, Moon Palace, will be opening up in Jamaica early next year.

We love all things about the Moon Palace Resorts— from the hospitality to the spaciousness of the resort— and thoroughly enjoyed our stay while we were in Cancun. Palace Resorts  sets the standard in luxurious, all-inclusive resort accommodations and we can’t wait to visit its newest property, Moon Palace Jamaica Grande, which will be the first Palace Resorts property located outside of Mexico.

In true Palace Resorts form, the resort offers guest a true experience.

Taste the Difference

With five dining destinations throughout the property, Moon Palace Jamaica Grande will feature exciting and eclectic flavors such as gourmet Asian, traditional Italian and modern Caribbean, among others, ensuring even the most discerning of gourmand guest palates is satisfied. The new property will also feature Palace Resorts’ answer to endless snack and food options, via an upscale gourmet food corridor. Part farmer’s market, part café, the gourmet corridor will offer patrons a wide variety of fresh cuisines from around the world.  As with all Palace Resorts properties, Moon Palace Jamaica Grande will offer top-shelf libations and premium cuisine featuring only the highest quality standards. Additionally, the resort will offer 24-hour room service to valued guests seeking everything from a late night snack to a full course meal.

Jamaica Chic Meets Palace Glamour

Palace Resorts, the groundbreaking innovator that introduced the world to iconic brands such as Le Blanc Spa Resort and Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort in Cancun, is expected to aesthetically transform Sunset Jamaica Grande into a destination resort fitting of its namesake. Conceived by cutting-edge designer Francois Frossard, Moon Palace Jamaica Grande will offer guests dynamic décor and design that blends whimsical, European influences with chic Caribbean undertones. A tropical haven that is both respective and reflective of its Jamaican backdrop, Moon Palace Jamaica Grande is expected to raise the bar for all-inclusive decadence with Frossard’s fantastical designs.

Pamper Yourself in Wellness

Perhaps the most remarkable of Moon Palace Jamaica Grande’s amenities will be the stunning 35,000 square foot wellness sanctuary. As luxury resorts continue to be synonymous with health and wellness offerings, Moon Palace Jamaica Grande will redefine the notion of a traditional all-inclusive resort on its head, with an Awe Spa and state-of-the-art gymnasium. A decadent oasis for pampering, the resort’s Awe Spa will come complete with multiple private treatment rooms, plunge pools and common areas for meditation and yoga. Offering a boutique experience of personalized service and treatments on a grand resort scale, a wealth of elements will guide the spa’s selection of products, including the sea, Ocho Rios’ tropical climate and Jamaica’s local cultures. Natural elements of light, exotic wood and stone will be combined with modern décor to create a soothing ambiance for spa guests.

Located on the north coast of Jamaica, less than 90 minutes from the Montego Bay airport, Moon Palace Jamaica Grande will feature 730 guestrooms and suites on a superb 17-acre beachfront featuring the longest stretch of private beach in Ocho Rios. Featuring a white-haute sand beach fringing the resort, five lavish swimming pools, lush verdant foliage, waterfalls, plunge pools and swim-up bars, Moon Palace Jamaica Grande will welcome guests upon completion early 2015.
