The Excellence Group Luxury Hotels and Resorts is set to open its newest luxury resort at Oyster Bay, Trelawny on June 1.

Ground was broken for the US$110 million, 315-room property last March.

With the opening, the Excellence Group will join Royalton Resorts, which owns the Royalton White Sands and Blue Waters, and Melia Hotels International, which operates the Melia Braco, as the three main internationally recognised brands to set up operations in Trelawny.

Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett says the opening of the luxury hotel brand will further raise the country’s stock as a premier destination for luxury travel.

“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,” he beamed.
