MONTEGO BAY, Jamaica, Friday March 31, 2017 – Excellence Group Luxury Hotels and Resorts, which recently announced plans for an all-inclusive luxury resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, officially broke ground yesterday.
And, alongside Prime Minister Andrew Holness and the Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett, Excellence Group revealed additional details of the highly anticipated $110 million project.
Set to open its doors to guests in the first half of 2018, Excellence Oyster Bay will be the first adults-only resort of its kind in Jamaica’s tranquil Montego Bay.
The waterfront property will feature 325 suites, including 800 square feet junior suites and 2,000 square feet upper suites featuring expansive living spaces, panoramic ocean views, and direct beach access. Additionally, the property will house eight restaurants and seven bars onsite, all thoughtfully designed to cater to the whim of every individual guest.
From upscale martini lounges to high-energy sports bars, the developers are promising that guests will find a convenient array of options for every mood and taste, as well as an onsite tennis court and outdoor activities area, luxury spa, and archery range.
“We are excited to create a unique, world-class destination for Montego Bay Jamaica and its community, thereby, laying foundations for new opportunities for Jamaica and its people,” said Excellence Group’s Co-CEO Monserrate Amengual.
“Oyster Bay is a visionary resort designed to provide exceptional experiences in travel, hospitality, and luxury service…Oyster Bay will further position Jamaica as one of the world’s leading travel destinations while creating jobs, increasing tourism, and providing overall economic growth.”
He said the project would create more than 1,500 jobs for Jamaicans during the construction phase and a staff of 700 Jamaicans would be employed when the resort opens its doors next year.
