The Gleaner-sponsored Jamaica Epicurean Escape (JEE), which will be staged between November 29 and December 2 in Richmond, St Ann, is proud of the partnership secured with The Cardiff Hotel and Spa in Runaway Bay under the umbrella partnership with its parent company HEART Trust/NTA.
General Manager Michelle Thame noted that the event is a natural fit for the hotel. "It complements our objectives; the exposure it will provide for our company will allow us to showcase our culinary expertise. A major focus for us at The Cardiff is the consistent improvement of our culinary offerings and we are very privileged to be benefiting from the immense experience of executive chef Dennis McIntosh. Our restaurant, Isabella's, has already developed a reputation for quality and its exquisite ambience."
The Cardiff Hotel and Spa is the product of the rebranding of the former Runaway Bay Heart Hotel earlier this year. Thame noted that the rebranding was not merely a change in name but a full upgrading of the nature boutique property and its offerings. "Our public areas and restrooms, restaurant, banquet and conference facilities have been considerably improved. We have been refurbishing all our rooms, with most of them now completed, bringing them up to par with four-star hotels," she said.
Each guest room is equipped with a small refrigerator, coffeemaker, iron and ironing board, access to Wi-Fi high-speed Internet at no extra cost, a swimming pool and shuttle service to nearby private beach.
To reach The Cardiff Hotel and Spa, turn left beside the Shell gas station in Runaway Bay, a few chains up you will come to the hotel that is ideally suited for an intimate getaway. It is equally well positioned for those who want a quiet space to focus and strategise in a retreat, conference or seminar setting.
