Salamander Hospitality to take over management of luxury Jamaica resort

Salamander Hospitality will become the new management company of the Ritz-Carlton Rose Hall resort in Montego Bay. The current ownership of the five-diamond luxury property, which is popular for tourists from all over the world on Jamaica holidays, is divided between the Rollins family and the Jamaican Government, and up until now the property had been managed by the Ritz for nine years.

Salamander Hospitality, which is based in the United States, is a luxury chain operating three US properties in the country. The company is owned by Sheila Johnson who became the first African-American female billionaire in 2000 after selling the BET network, which she and her previous husband had co-founded, for $3 billion.

The Ritz-Carlton Rose Hall resort comprises 427 guest rooms and suites, five exquisite restaurants, an 18-hole gold course, two tennis courts, 25, 000 square feet of conference and meeting room space, and a luxury spa, fitness centre and beauty salon, perfect for guests looking to relax and be pampered on their holidays in Jamaica. To top it off, the scenery surrounding the luxury resort is made up of sandy beaches, lush green mountains and sparkling turquoise water, enabling guests taking Jamaica holidays to experience their own taste of paradise.

The Ritz-Carlton Rose hall property, which is one of the most popular Jamaica luxury hotels for high end clients, could be taken over by the new management company as early as next month.

However, recent reports have stated that Ritz-Carlton may be facing the threat of being sued by another luxury resort, after the company failed to keep up with the maintenance of the Rose Hall Ritz-Carlton Golf and Spa Resort and refused to keep the resort's beaches clean. This legal action may delay the management takeover of the Ritz-Carlton Rose Hall property.
