Jamaica's first casino resort to break ground this year
The first ever casino resort will be built in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The Celebration Jamaica project is due to break ground this year on 90 acres in Rose Hall, and it will have a 2,000 guest rooms and suites, a casino, and entertainment facilities including a 1,200-seat theatre, and a state-of-the-art music studio.
Jamaica is getting ready for its very first licensed casino resort, following the country's new Integrated Resort Development and Casino legislation.
The multi-million dollar "Celebration Jamaica" project is expected to break ground this year on 90 acres of land in Rose Hall in Montego Bay on the north coast of Jamaica.
The 2,000-room mega resort will have an array of dining and entertainment options including a 1,000-seat theatre, a state-of-the-art music studio, a health club and spa, a convention centre, restaurants, a kids club, a marina, a full-service casino with table gaming and slot machines, retail space, an artisan village, and a banquet hall for events and celebrations.
The founder of "Celebration Jamaica", Robert Trotta, said the new luxury resort would aim at:
"...celebrating all things Jamaican and Jamaican music in particular."
The project is also said to create 2,000 jobs for local Jamaicans and will raise millions in tax revenue for the Jamaican government.
Montego Bay is Jamaica's second city located on the north coast of the tropical island. Tourists can enjoy beautiful white sand beaches, luxury all-inclusive beachfront hotels and resorts, sparkling azure lagoons, bustling craft markets and shops in the town centre, and a collection of historic sites and attractions.
Jamaica is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the Caribbean, due to its stunning landscapes, including white sand beaches fringed with warm turquoise ocean waters, majestic mountains, cascading waterfalls, lush undulating green hills, and dense forests.
Holidaymakers can visit the island's natural wonders, such as Dunn's River Falls in Ocho Rios, the five-mile-long Doctor's Cave Beach in Montego Bay, verdant botanical gardens, and the soaring Blue Mountains. Popular attractions include the famous Bob Marley Museum, Kingston Harbour and the island's historic sugar plantations such as Bellefield Great House and Garden and Rose Hall Great House.
