S HOTEL JAMAICA
History & Story
Chris Issa, Jamaican entrepreneur and owner of the recently formed Crissa Hotels including Kingston’s iconic Spanish Court Hotel comments, ”We’re creating a new kind of hotel in Montego Bay, one that infuses modern Jamaican culture balanced with the sophistication of an urban hotel and the laidback style of a beach resort, appealing to international travelers and locals alike.”
Award-winning, full-service, Miami-based luxury design firm, Antrobus Ramirez directed the interior design of the hotel with Jamaica-born designer Alison Antrobus and design partner Ruby Ramirez, spearheading the project. A towering 25-foot interior lobby walled with coral stone greet guests with a central ‘boardwalk’ made from local Jatoba hardwood physically and visually connecting the hotel’s many water elements from the stunning entryway water feature leading back to the central swimming pool, setting the stage for grand processions of hotel activity.
Main Strengths, Special Touch
S Hotel won’t just be a place to be seen, it is a chance to enter the constellation and shine with an international ambiance reminiscent of South Beach accented with an irie vibe. The main swimming pool is framed by lounge-worthy swim-out cabanas and white sand lines the area around the pool dotted with beach chairs and a sleek wood deck completing the resort-style atmosphere.
Making its highly anticipated debut on January 27, 2019, the new, stylish S Hotel Jamaica is poised as the ultimate trendsetting hotspot overlooking famed Doctor’s Cave Beach, putting the resort city of Montego Bay back on the map among international travelers.
