Jamaica Showcased as Luxury Destination Ahead of World Travel Awards
Jamaica's image as a destination is rapidly becoming a luxury one, after being nominated for ten World Travel Awards this year. Travellers taking Jamaica holidays can choose from an array of some of the world's most luxurious hotels and resorts.
After being selected as the host of the World Travel Awards Caribbean & Americas ceremony next month and after being nominated for ten World Travel Awards this year, Jamaica is fast becoming known as one of the world’s most luxurious destinations.
The Caribbean island boasts plenty of upscale accommodation for travellers taking luxury Jamaica holidays, and hotels and resorts in the island, including GoldenEye, The Half Moon, Strawberry Hill and Round Hill have all been nominated for prestigious World Travel Awards this year.
Jamaica has been nominated for the World’s Leading Destination and the World’s Leading Tourist Board at the ceremony, which is referred to as the “Oscars of the travel industry” by industry experts and the global media.
Nominated Jamaica hotels include the GoldenEye for the “Caribbean’s Leading Boutique Resort”, which is owned by Island Records icon Chris Blackwell and features 11 new luxury beach cottages and lagoon suites; Montego Bay’s Round Hill which has been linked with A-list guests such as Sir Paul McCartney, Fred Astaire, Tommy Hilfiger and John F Kennedy and is up for five World Travel Awards; and the RockResort’s Half Moon that will compete for the title of the “Caribbean’s Leading Hotel”.
Tourists taking Jamaica holidays now have a wider selection of all inclusive resorts on the Caribbean island including the adults-only five-star Secrets St James & Secrets Wild Orchid resort in Montego Bay that offers exclusive luxury amenities of Unlimited-Luxury within stunning tropical surroundings.
