Jamaica's room inventory could grow by 4,800 or more by the end of 2023. Despite the global pandemic, Jamaica is geared to increase its tourism industry exponentially which means more hotel rooms is essential.
Tourism minister Edmund Bartlett said: "The future of tourism in Jamaica is very bright, and our goal to dramatically increase the number of hotel rooms in the destination is still on track, despite the challenges we've been facing.”
Upcoming additions to room stock for Jamaica include Oceans by H10 and Excellence Oyster Bay, both in Trelawny; ROK Hotel, the Wyndham and Terra Nova mixed-use development, all in Kingston; Sandals Negril and Princess Hotels, both in Negril; Sandals Whitehouse in St. Elizabeth; Sandals Royal Caribbean and Hotel Grand-A-View, both in Montego Bay; and the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in St. James.
In addition, the Harmonisation Group will continue work on the Harmony Cove tourism project in Trelawny. The project is expected to cost JA$7.5 billion (KY$42m) and will include several luxury hotels, golf courses, a spa, marina facilities, commercial developments, private residences and other elements.
