Traveling to Jamaica has never been easier
Air connectivity to the island of Jamaica continues to be bolstered by new services. Starting in February 2023, Frontier Airlines is adding three new non-stop flights to Montego Bay (MBJ) from the airline’s hub in Denver (DEN), Chicago-Midway (MDW) and St. Louis (STL). This new service provides even greater connectivity to and from the west and northwest regions of the United States.
Once in Jamaica, visitors have a growing selection of accommodations. Approximately 8,000 new rooms are scheduled to be constructed within the next two to five years. These include a 2,000-room Princess Hotel, the 260-room Sandals Dunn’s River resort and a third RIU hotel with 700 rooms, all providing additional meeting space. Additionally, there are plans for 2,000-room Hard Rock Hotel along with several other properties, and the renovations at Couples San Souci are on track for completion by December 2023.
In the capital city of Kingston, a multi-billion-dollar four-year redevelopment is underway at the Jamaica Conference Centre. Its lobby renovation is slated to be complete by December. Adjacent to the Conference Centre, the 168-room ROK Hotel Kingston, a Tapestry Collection by Hilton property, opened in July 2022 featuring six meeting rooms and spacious public areas for events.
Jamaica’s new and ongoing developments, programs and initiatives lay the framework for the island’s continued strong tourism and group business rebound.
“While all destinations across the world have experienced challenges as a result of the pandemic, we in Jamaica are deeply grateful for the success we have had and I am extremely optimistic about the future of Jamaica’s tourism industry,” said Donovan White, director of tourism for Jamaica Tourist Board.
