Half Moon, a destination resort and 400-acre beachfront oasis in Jamaica, is kicking off its 65th anniversary celebrations with culinary offerings, new experiences and more. For 65 years, Half Moon has been the chosen resort for royalty, presidents, world-class entertainers and generations of loyal guests seeking privacy, luxury and tranquility.
What began as a 35-acre property with a hotel and modest cottages is now one of the Caribbean’s most iconic destinations. This unique brand of hospitality translates to personal and heartfelt service from Half Moon’s team of more than 830 associates. Many members of the Half Moon family have been with the resort for decades, including Wordsworth Watson, the longest-serving tourism worker in Jamaica who was acknowledged by the Jamaica Tourist Board and recently celebrated his 60th anniversary at Half Moon.
“Since opening our doors in 1954, Half Moon has been known for its warm Jamaican hospitality infused with superlative comfort and luxury, and now it is time for us to honor our iconic Caribbean resort,” said Guy Steuart III, Chairman of Half Moon. “We’ve attracted the world’s discerning travelers by offering the finest experience in the Caribbean as well as the utmost privacy, intimacy and distraction and we are thrilled to welcome future generations of guests as we celebrate our 65 years of heritage.”
Half Moon will celebrate its 65th anniversary throughout 2019.
As part of the transformation in celebration of Half Moon’s 65th anniversary, debuting in 2019, Half Moon will additionally welcome 57 new guestrooms and suites, an expanded beachfront with a natural swimming cove, an adults-only swimming pool, three new bars and two new restaurants—the elegantly-appointed seafood restaurant Delmare, and The Great House Restaurant, specializing in buffet and freshly prepared dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
