MONTEGO BAY — Sunset Resorts has further delayed the reopening of two key resorts in Montego Bay, Jamaica.
After announcing back in September that Oasis at Sunset and Sunset Beach Resort, Spa & Waterpark would remain closed until January 2021 while Jamaica awaited an increase in visitor traffic from key feed markets like Canada, the U.S. and the United Kingdom, the resort company has now confirmed that Oasis at Sunset will reopen on Feb. 5 while Sunset Beach Resort will remain closed until July 1, 2021.
According to the company, it arrived at this decision after months of carefully monitoring the current state of travel to Jamaica, taking into consideration both increased health and safety protocols and reduced flight service into the destination. Sunset Resorts also examined upcoming bookings and determined that Oasis at Sunset, the smaller of the two properties, is better equipped to care for the limited number of guests anticipated during what is usually the Caribbean’s busiest seasons.
The two all-inclusive resorts share a campus that’s located about four miles from Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay. All activities, including the Pirates Paradise Waterpark, will be open for guests at Oasis at Sunset.
While both resorts will remain closed until 2021, Sunset Resorts’ boutique, adults-only resort in Negril, Sunset at the Palms, reopened in early July 2020, with guest satisfaction surveys at an all-time high.
