The resorts features a two-storey, island villa-inspired Grande Spa

X Fund Properties – a wholly owned subsidiary of Sagicor Real Estate, Jamaica’s largest publicly-traded property investment company – has opened a luxury resort in Montego Bay.

The Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort, in Jamaica, has 217 guestrooms located in three beachfront towers and also houses a large 30,000sq ft (2,800sq m) luxury spa. Owned by X Fund, the resort and spa are operated by Jamaican management company Aimbridge Hospitality.

The two-storey, island villa-inspired Grande Spa offers a treatment menu inspired by local, traditional spa rituals, curated by Sienna Creasy, founder of Reggaelates – a form of pilates using reggae music.

Facilities include single and double treatment rooms, a Finnish sauna, steam room, spa pools, a quartz therapy massage table supplied by Gharieni, and Jamaica’s only halotherapy lounge using Himalayan salt.

The resort’s family-oriented focus is reflected in the spa operations, with a special treatment menu of natural facials, manicures and braids catering for children and teens.

“The bespoke beachfront location provides the ideal backdrop for our distinctive and curated experiences that are personalised for all of our guests,” said Aimbridge CEO Dave Johnson.

“This is one of the most exciting luxury all-inclusive resort openings in the Caribbean.”

The new resort adds to X Fund Properties’ growing portfolio of hotels – it also owns the Hilton Rose Hall Beach Resort & Spa in Montego Bay and the DoubleTree by Hilton at the entrance of Universal Orlando Resort in Florida.
