The contemporary, 120-room S Hotel, part of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World, artfully combines discrete urban sophistication and a laid-back resort lifestyle with an underlying rootsy vibe. S Hotel offers guests an authentic Jamaican lifestyle experience, interweaving local island food, music, art and entertainment into every facet of the guest’s stay. Buzzing bars, a chic café, a high-spirited pool scene, sky-high suites, an international restaurant, a subterranean spa, a cultural centre, gym and rooms with a relevant design aesthetic thoughtfully combine into a modern sensibility with an effervescent sense of place.
S Hotel Jamaica made its debut in Montego Bay in January 2019 with forward thinking design and a modern take on Jamaican hospitality, putting the resort city back on the map among international travellers. S Hotel’s prime location on famed Doctor’s Cave Beach and close proximity to Sangster International Airport, serves as a stylish basecamp to explore the area’s new shops, restaurants and entertainment. The inspiration for the contemporary 120-room S Hotel, part of the prestigious Small Luxury Hotels of the World (SLH), is as cosmopolitan as it comes, but the feeling is notably Jamaican as the hotel welcomes guests to their home away from home, balancing a cosy atmosphere with its purposeful design and sophisticated amenities. Buzzing bars, a high-spirited pool scene, the exclusive Sky Deck for concierge floor guests, international restaurants, a 24-hour café, a spa with therapeutic plunge pools, a gym and spacious modern guest rooms, thoughtfully combine to create a modern and effervescent sense of place. shoteljamaica.com.
