Marriott International will be opening a brand new hotel in the Caribbean this autumn in a project that is being developed by Caribe Hospitality Jamaica.

The hotel group will debut its Courtyard by Marriott brand in Kingston, Jamaica with a new hotel in the third quarter of 2015.

There will be a 16 per cent reduction in water consumption, there will be a 30 per cent usage of regional materials, and five per cent of its energy with be provided through onsite solar panels.

Andrew Houghton, the Area Vice President of the Caribbean at Marriott International, explained:

"The changing economic climate across the world and today's technology has changed how people travel.

"Our guests want a room that has purpose and flexibility that enables a seamless transition between relaxing and working. Courtyard is designed to offer them a relaxing and functional space to work the way they want to, when they want to."

The luxury hotel will have 129 guest rooms and suites and will be located close to shopping and dining districts in Kingston, and 19km from the Norman Manley International Airport.

Facilities at the Courtyard by Marriott hotel include the brand's signature fresh business lobby, a lobby bar, a casual restaurant, flexible meeting space, a swimming pool and a modern fitness centre.

Laurent de Kousemaeker, the Chief Development Officer, for Caribbean and Latin America at Marriott International, commented:

"With the success of the brand across the region, the Courtyard by Marriott brand has become a favourite amongst regional travellers.

"The new hotel in Jamaica will be a significant milestone in our rapid expansion across the Caribbean and our company crossing borders into new and exciting markets."

Jamaica is an island nation located in the Caribbean Sea and one of the world's leading tourist destinations. With large white sand beaches fringed with warm turquoise ocean waters, soaring mountains, cascading waterfalls, verdant undulating green hills, and dense forests, holidaymakers will have plenty of opportunities to admire the country's stunning natural scenery and sites.

Popular tourist attractions include the Bob Marley Museum, Kingston Harbour, and Rose Hall House, a former sugar plantation.
