Since 1954, it’s been one of the Caribbean’s iconic resorts.
And now it’s back.
Jamaica’s Half Moon has reopened its signature Founders Cove resort, Caribbean Journal has learned.
The reopening comes after Half Moon recently relaunched its newest addition, the stunning Eclipse at Half Moon resort.
Founders Cove at Half Moon, the luxury property’s original resort, has long been one of the most renowned places to stay in the Caribbean, with the Montego Bay-area resort welcoming guests from Queen Elizabeth II to John F. Kennedy since it first opened in 1954.
The resort, set right on the sand of the 400-acre resort’s original beach, is set across 10 different “cottages,” some with private pools.
One of those cottages was famously used as a filming location in the James Bond film “Live and Let Die.”
“Framed by the glistening Caribbean Sea to the north and the lush hillsides to the south, Founders Cove embraces the rich history and natural beauty of Jamaica, expansive outdoor spaces and specially-curated experiences,” the property said in a statement.
The reopening of Founders Cove completes the property’s relaunch; shortly after Jamaica reopened for tourism in June, Half Moon began welcoming guests to its Rose Hall Villas resort.
All three resorts are operating under enhanced health and safety measures.
That ranges from masks required for hotel guests, temperature checks for all service professionals and physical distancing across the property, among others.
“Throughout our resort, Half Moon has increased its already-rigorous cleaning protocols,” the property said.
