The Caribbean has a new hotel brand: Curio — A Collection by Hilton.
And on Monday, the all-inclusive Jewel Paradise Cove Beach Resort became the first Curio hotel in the Caribbean: Jewel Paradise Cove Beach Resort by Curio.
Curio “caters to passionate travelers seeking local discovery and authentic experiences,” according to a statement from Hilton.
“Set on the pristine white sand beaches of Jamaica’s North Shore, travelers will discover the magic of Curio’s new Jewel Paradise Cove Beach Resort & Spa, where rich island culture and community flavor intersect to create a truly distinct and intriguing experience,” said Dianna Vaughan, global head for Curio. “It’s an honor to welcome this beautiful resort as the first international destination for Curio, and the tenth property to join our rapidly-growing global collection.”
The 210-room, 15-suite property has a focus on wellness, including a “Radiant Spa,” a “Cut Fitness Center” and even a 10-station “Fit Trail,” among other features.
It also includes amenities like a “dive-in” movie theater, a 202-foot waterslide and complimentary access to the Runaway Bay Golf Club, along with seven bars and seven restaurants.
It is located on the north coast of Jamaica in the parish of St Ann.
“We look forward to embarking on an exciting new chapter through our partnership with Curio – A Collection by Hilton,” said Dave Johnson, president and CEO of Ambridge Hospitality, the hotel’s operator. “Synonymous with local flair, Curio embodies the true spirit of the island and is the perfect addition to our signature Jamaican hospitality.”
Another Jamaican hotel, Jewel Dunn’s River Beach Resort and Spa in Ocho Rios, will also be joining the Curio brand this fall, the company said.
