A significant new hotel project is making its debut in Jamaica this June.

The Excellence Group’s Oyster Bay resort is slated to hold its grand opening in Trelawny, Jamaica on June 1, the island’s government announced this week.

Ground was broken for the 315-room all-inclusive project in March 2017.

Excellence will be the third major brand to come to Trelawny, including Royalton and Melia.

“Following the flurry of openings we had in 2017 with luxury brands such as the Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort & Spa, Zoetry Montego Bay, and Breathless Montego Bay, here we are again with another crowning jewel,” said Jamaica Tourism Minister Edmund Bartlett. ““This is yet another testament to Jamaica’s ever increasing status as the top Caribbean destination for high-end travel. Attracting a luxury brand like Excellence is nothing to scoff at.”

The project, located on a private peninsula about 35 minutes from Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport, will inclue eight restaurants, nine bars, two beachfront pools and a spa, among other amenities.

It will be Excellence’s first resort outside of the Dominican Republic and Mexico.

“With Excellence Oyster Bay, we raised the standard to offer a whole new all-inclusive luxury experience for adults and we are confident that Jamaica is the perfect choice for it,” said Domingo Aznar, vice president of sales and marketing at Excellence Group.
