MONTEGO BAY, JAMAICA – (Sept 28, 2017) –  X Fund Properties Limited and Aimbridge Hospitality announce the opening of  Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort & Spa nestled on a private cove between Jamaica’s sprawling rolling hills and vibrant Caribbean Sea, a mere fifteen minutes from Sangster International Airport. The Jamaican owned all-inclusive resort exemplifies the island’s laidback ambiance paired with a myriad of premium amenities from a 30,000-square foot island villa-inspired Grande Spa to 12 epicurean marvels.

The new addition to the Jewel chain of resorts boasts three beachfront towers—Sabal, Silver and Sentry–and 11 expansive villas for a total of 217 fully-stocked, tastefully curated accommodation options. An assortment of dining offerings catering to discerning palates, personal butler service, 25,000 square feet of customizable meetings space, and an elaborate villa inspired spa sanctuary are only a few of the noteworthy offerings gracing this island escape.

“Driven by Jamaica’s deeply rooted tradition of hospitality and cultural vibrancy, we wanted to deliver a sophisticated travel experience that’s uniquely our own,” said Rohan Miller, CEO of Sagicor  Real Estate X Fund Limited. “That said, we’ve tailored all touchpoints throughout our all-inclusive journey to provide elevated relaxation infused with local charm.”

Jewel Grande is managed  by Aimbridge Hospitality, a long time operator for the  Resort portfolio in both Jamaica and Orlando. President and CEO Dave Johnson adds, “It is an honor to launch one of the most exciting luxury all-inclusive resort openings in the Caribbean. This bespoke beachfront location provides the ideal backdrop for our distinctive and curated experiences that are personalized for all of our guests. Unparalleled hospitality is our inspiration with the new Jewel Grande,” added Johnson.

Grande Spa

Staying true to native Jamaican remedies and ingredients, the two story 30,000-square foot island villa-inspired Grande Spa boasts locally based Spa Rituals curated by Reggaelates founder and yoga instructor, Sienna Creasy. This wellness oasis houses Jamaica’s only Himalayan Salt Halotherapy Lounge and first Gharieni Quartz therapy massage table—best known to provide mental harmony, detoxification, and an immune system boost. The spa menu rounds out its offerings with facials, haircuts, make up, waxing, and more. As a family-friendly establishment, Grande Spa caters to kids and teens alike with a menu of natural facials, massages, manicures, pedicures, and braids. Spa goers can indulge in smoothies, tea, and healthy fare at the Grande Spa’s Ortanique Café & Juice Bar for pre or post treatment snacks.
