Jamiaca’s luxury holiday boom

Luxury hotels in Jamaica are enjoying an unprecedented boom in guests that has them bursting at the seams, it has been revealed.

Luxury holiday resorts such as the Jamaica Pegasus Hotel and the Hilton Hotel, currently hosting the UK’s Prince Charles and wife the Duchess of Cornwall on a visit, have found themselves fully booked.

Claudette Kenlock, director of sales and marketing at the Hilton Hotel told the Jamaica Observer that ISSA boys’ and girls’ Athletic Championships at the National Stadium in Kingston is likely to bring in even more visitors.

She told the newspaper: “We are at a 100 per cent occupancy and the Champs persons would add to it.”

Similarly, smaller luxury hotels such as the Knutsford Court Hotel and the Courtleigh Hotel are also feeling the effects of increased international popularity of both Jamaica and the sporting event.

Such has been the growth of Jamaica’s tourism industry that it is set to construct a state-of-the-art hospitality institute, due to be completed in 2009, to train tourism industry professionals.
