The project has consisted of the refurbishment of common areas and the 537 hotel rooms, which includes 48 suites of two new categories that now have a terrace, private pool, and sea views.
MADRID – Palladium Hotel Group continues its commitment to excellence in the classic Caribbean destination of Jamaica. The Spanish hotel group, which manages two hotels in Montego Bay, has undergone a thorough refurbishment of Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa in order to adapt to new design and decoration trends, enhance its hotel offerings in the destination and continue offering an elevated experience to travelers from all over the world.
Through its investment of $27.5 million, the ambitious project has consisted of 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.
Designed and executed by Urcoisa Interior Design (UID), the refurbishment refreshes the resort’s English colonial style, which seeks a timeless, elegant and fresh look in line with the brand elements of the Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts. UID also sought to integrate elements of nature into the design and interior decoration through colors, textures, and natural materials.
Over 500 refurbished rooms and two new categories
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 spectacular 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.
Inside each of the 537 suites, the new furniture stands out as more modern; as well as timeless and elegant. The colonial decor is attuned to the architecture of the rest of the resort. Bathrooms feature a hydromassage bathtub and shower, and all the taps, accessories, and amenities are also new. Some rooms have open bathrooms centered by the bathtub.
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.
Common Spaces That Excite
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.
On 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.
