The glass swimming pool nestled in the rooftop deck of the new Spanish Court Hotel in Montego Bay, cradled between powder blue infinities of clear skies above and azure waters below, makes it easy to see why the pirates once called Jamaica the jewel of the Caribbean.
Located on Mo Bay’s hip strip, Spanish Court is an easy walk to Doctor’s Cave Beach, as well as bars, restaurants and nightlife. It offers world-class amenities, sophisticated design and infinite peace for the weary traveler who dreams of the glamour promised by a luxury Caribbean vacation without totally removing them from the culture of the country they’ve chosen to visit.
Spanish Court Montego Bay is a unicorn in this sense. Unlike the all-inclusive compounds perched outside city limits, Spanish Court hopes to appeal to those who don’t want to vacation in a bubble. It’s central city location and clean, comfortable accommodations, appeal to the millennial traveler who wants to experience the real Jamaica.
The 120 newly renovated modern suites offer grand spa bathrooms with Roman tubs and oversized sauna-like showers. The majority of these rooms showcase ocean vistas that will set the pace for relaxation and rejuvenation. Spanish Court in Montego Bay offers a European Plan (EP), which means the quoted rate is for the room alone. Guests can choose from a variety of meal plans making Spanish Court an affordable option for every visitor.
Designer Alison Antrobus and owner, Christopher Issa, wanted Spanish Court Montego Bay to feel like any posh hotel on Miami’s famous South Beach with a Jamaican-centric twist.
As guests enter the lobby/ gallery space, they will be greeted with readings, lectures and performances—serving up the authentic Jamaican experience they crave upon arrival. All the Jamaican-made furniture that adorns this boutique hotel will also be available for sale, as will the Jamaican art and sculpture pieces used to decorate the hotel. Spanish Court Montego Bay not only invites guests to experience the real Jamaica, it encourages them to take a piece home as a souvenir.
Whether you are a visitor or Montegonian, Spanish Court Montego Bay is the destination for you. It offers world-class customer service, dining, art, culture and beach and sea access. If the jewel of the Caribbean had a center stone, this would be it.
