PALMA DE MALLORCA, SPAIN—Meliá Hotels International has entered into an agreement with the government of Jamaica by which Meliá has been entrusted to operate the flagship resort currently known as Braco Village Hotel & Spa in Braco, on Jamaica’s north coast.
The resort consists of 226 rooms within colonial-style buildings and features five restaurants and a variety of bars, pools and spas.
The property will undergo a comprehensive renovation, reopening as Meliá Jamaica, scheduled for November 2014. Once it is adapted to the Meliá brand, the property will be managed as a Meliá All Inclusive, Meliá Hotels International’s upscale all-inclusive hotels.
"Jamaica is a long awaited destination for Meliá Hotels International; the English-speaking Caribbean is a major focus in our global expansion strategy,” stated Gabriel Escarrer, Meliá Hotels International chairman.
The hotel is owned by the country's National Insurance Fund (NIF).
