Major hotel brands debut in Jamaica

Destination Broadens Hotel Portfolio with New Builds and Deepens Relationships with Current Properties

 KINGSTON, JAMAICA – Major hotel brands are entering the shorelines of Jamaica to entertain vacationers with elegance, luxury and more variety than ever. Jamaica’s collection of hotels is rapidly growing and diversifying with the debut of renowned hotel brands such as Hyatt and recently announced brands such as Curio – A Collection by Hilton.

“Jamaica continues to attract some of the world’s leading hotel brands, because the destination ticks all the right boxes for today’s eclectic traveler,” said Jamaica’s Director of Tourism, Paul Pennicook. “This leaves us with a feeling of tremendous optimism for our island nation, with further proof that our destination’s diversity is highly coveted by the travel and tourism community.”
