Playa Hotels & Resorts has completed its acquisition of the former Ritz-Carlton Golf & Spa Resort, Rose Hall, Jamaica

Playa Hotels & Resorts has completed its acquisition of the former Ritz-Carlton Golf & Spa Resort, Rose Hall, Jamaica. The company is planning to commence a major enhancement and expansion project later this month, which is expected to be completed spring 2014.

The resort will be re-launched as Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall, Jamaica.

 The resort, which closed in May, currently houses 427 guestrooms and suites, 15,000 square feet of meeting and event space and a full-service spa.

The planned expansion of the 13-year old property will include an update to all existing guestrooms, meeting and event space, as well as the public areas. The expansion also includes the addition of 124 luxury suites and swim-up suites, a new swimming pool, and several new food and beverage options.

"Rose Hall is one of the most beautiful and pristine resort developments in Jamaica and throughout the Caribbean so it was essential that we bring a strong brand to the Resort to ensure its ongoing success," said Bruce Wardinski, CEO for Playa Hotels & Resorts. "We believe the Hyatt Ziva brand and the experiences it will create for families will make it a perfect fit for the luxury reputation of Rose Hall. We are confident that working with the tourism community in Montego Bay, the renovated resort will be well-received and tremendously successful in continuing to enhance and grow the upscale reputation and tourism for this destination."
