Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa undergoes deep renovation

TORONTO — Palladium Hotel Group, which manages two hotels in Montego Bay, has undergone a thorough renovation of the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa.

The US$27.5 million investment includes the remodelling of the resort’s 537 suites as well as various common areas such as the lobby, a show-cooking restaurant and a bar.

Designed and executed by Urcoisa Interior Design (UID), the renovation refreshes the resort’s English colonial style in line with the brand elements of the Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts. It also follows the 2016 renovation at the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa, located in the same resort managed by the Palladium Hotel Group. 


The newly renovated 537 rooms will be available from mid-December. Of these, two new categories stand out in 48 suites with sea views: 40 Superior Junior Suite Private Pool Ocean View, and eight Superior Suite Private Pool Oceanfront View. Surrounded by vegetation, these swim-up suites offer a private pool and terrace and are fully equipped with seating and a wooden pergola.

In the Superior Junior Suite Private Pool Ocean View, the pool is 8m2 and the terrace is 15m2. This room type is now the largest in the entire hotel, featuring a pool and terrace fully furnished with a dining room. It also 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.

Inside the 537 suites, modern new furniture complements a colonial style. Bathrooms feature a hydromassage bathtub and shower, while all the taps, accessories and amenities are also new. Some rooms have open bathrooms centered by the bathtub. 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.


The Infinity Saloon Bar, the meeting point par excellence of the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa featuring 180-degree views of the Caribbean Sea, has an open-air terrace that now boasts elegant awnings and lounge-style furniture with sofas and large armchairs. 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 Jamaica’s national bird, the hummingbird.

In the lobby, the reception has been updated with white treillage lattices and mirrors, while 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 differentiated by screens, priority has been given to comfort and spacious furniture. The space now has two new food stations to offer a greater variety of dishes and products.


Ideal for families, couples, friends or groups, Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts presents itself in Jamaica with a resort made up of the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort & Spa and the Grand Palladium Lady Hamilton Resort & Spa. The 517 suites and several areas of the latter also underwent an exhaustive renovation six years ago in order to reinforce the neoclassical design, with a colonial style and a strong British influence of the resort.

Located in Montego Bay, on the northwest coast of the country, Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts in Jamaica has 1,054 rooms of different categories and offers guests direct access to the beach, 11 restaurants and 15 themed bars, various entertainment options for all ages, the Zentropia Palladium Spa & Wellness wellness center, as well as extensive facilities, including one of the largest pools in the Caribbean.

All these facilities, coupled with quality services, make Grand Palladium Hotels & Resorts in Jamaica the ideal place to celebrate corporate events, dream weddings through the Weddings by Palladium brand, and special occasions such as bachelor or bachelorette parties, among others.

In line with Palladium Hotel Group’s commitment to the environment, the resort has more than 6,000 photovoltaic panels, the largest panel installation in the entire hotel group and one of the largest in the country. In addition, it has a trigeneration project where, by adding natural gas to the energy supply, electricity, heat and cold are produced, reducing emissions in the consumption of electricity and water. As a result of these and other measures, more than 20% of the resort’s energy is renewable, allowing it to avoid 136,000 kg of CO2 emissions per month.
