The S Hotel Jamaica is set to make its debut this month along Doctor’s Cave Beach in Montego Bay. Miami-based design firm Antrobus Ramirez oversaw the design of the interiors, which will draw heavily from Jamaican history and culture.
Artisanal weaving techniques will be featured in 20-foot-long rattan cane screen panels, while cut stone typical of Jamaica architecture will adorn the lobby, which is anchored by a central boardwalk crafted from local Jatoba hardwood. Wrapped in coral stone walls, the 25-foot-tall lobby will also feature work from local lumber artist Tamara Harding.
A monochrome palette will define all 120 accommodations, which will embrace backdrops of the city or the Caribbean Sea. Spa suites boast oversized wicker-wrapped soaking tubs, signature Sky suites will be outfitted with 20-foot-tall ceilings, and the three-bedroom presidential suite will include a living and dining room.
F&B concepts include signature eatery Rock Steady and rooftop retreat the Sky Deck, complete with a glass-enclosed pool surrounded by cabanas and loungers. The Pool Bar & Grill and the Ska Café will round out the onsite options. The Irie Baths and Spa will embrace Jamaican heritage across four treatment rooms with wellness concepts such as subterranean plunge pools made to resemble ancient baths.
