Half Moons’ lobby was renovated as part of the first phase of the hotel’s 75 million renovation

The Board of Directors of Half Moon, a luxury resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica, have announced that the property is set to undergo an extensive renovation beginning in May.

Scheduled for completion in October of 2018, the second phase of the $75 million Half Moon Master Plan includes the introduction of new guest facilities and restaurants, as well as expanding the beach and the accommodations, which include 57 new rooms and suites that will replace 44 existing ones.  

This phase follows the 2015 refurbishment of the Sugar Mill Restaurant, resort lobby, Robert Trent Jones Sr.-designed golf course and the introduction of the popular Lester’s Cafe.

Also near completion is the centralized Back of House complex, which will open in June and provide first-rate resources, and modern facilities for Half Moon team members. 

“This period of development will be an exciting time for Half Moon, which has been the chosen retreat for royalty, presidents and generations of loyal guests,” said Guy Stuart, chairman of the Half Moon Board of Directors, in a written release.

The resort, located on 400 acres of tropical gardens and bordered by two miles of beach front, will remain open for the duration of the development project. 

“Our resort operations will not be impacted by this initiative,” said Sandro Fabric, general manager of Half Moon. “We will continue to provide the excellent service we are known for, and ensure that our guests ‘comfort will be our top priority.”

The 63-year-old resort has two miles of private beachfront and 31 luxurious four-, five-, six- and seven-bedroom villas all with private pools and a personal staff  that includes a butler, a cook and a housekeeper.
