Sandals Dunn’s River Resort Now The Jewel Beach Resort and Spa

Aimbridge Hospitality announced yesterday the fall 2010 opening of The Jewel Beach Resort and Spa, located in Mammee Bay, St. Ann, Jamaica, outside of Ocho Rios. The hotel, owned by Sagicor Pooled Investment Funds and managed by Aimbridge Hospitality, is the former Sandals Dunn’s River Resort. The hotel is currently undergoing an extensive makeover, which will include new room products as well as new technology and flat screen TV’s.

Carol Bourke, the hotel’s new managing director, brings with her extensive hotel management experience in Jamaica and aims to maintain the excellent quality of service that the hotel has been noted for throughout the past twenty years. She also plans to create an ambiance for couples at The Jewel that cannot be matched at other properties in Jamaica.

The property will feature four themed a la carte restaurants, a nine-hole “pitch and putt” golf course, 26 acres of lush gardens and the hotel’s unmatched Diamond Club Service, which will feature private butler service and 24-hour concierge services. A pool concierge service will also be added, and the spa, gym and all of the restaurants and bars will be reinvented and rebranded.
