Couples Ocho Rios Closes For $15 Million Renovation

 

Couples Resorts announced plans for a $15 million renovation of its all- inclusive, couples-only resort, Couples Ocho Rios in Jamaica, which will shut down the property for nearly eight months.

The resort will close on April 1 and a new and improved Couples Ocho Rios will be unveiled on December 15. Nearly every aspect of the resort from the lobby to the spa to restaurants and pool facilities will be renovated with a contemporary touch. “We’ve been working on these plans for two years now,” Couples Chairman Lee Issa said in a statement. “This well-orchestrated renovation effort is an example of our continued investment in Couples Ocho Rios and dedication to quality and guest satisfaction.” Originally built in 1949 as the Tower Isle Hotel and rebranded as Couples Ocho Rios in 1978, the resort will undergo extensive renovations that will include the addition of 20 accommodations—four suites and 16 rooms—all with ocean views, flat-screen TVs and enhancements to the main pool.
