Sunset Resorts, which is in the midst of rebranding and refurbishing two Montego Bay resorts reacquired from AMResorts in June, has decided to postpone the reopening of Sunset Beach Resort, Spa & Waterpark and Oasis at Sunset until Jan. 15, 2021. The pair were originally set to reopen this fall.

Sunset Resorts arrived at this decision after months of carefully monitoring the current state of travel to Jamaica, taking into consideration both increased health and safety protocols for the island and the limited flight service being offered to Jamaica from major feeder markets.

“We’re looking forward to sharing our new and improved Montego Bay properties with guests from around the world,” said Ian Kerr, managing director of Sunset Resorts, in a press release statement. “And as always, we’re relying on our partners in the travel profession to help us educate potential visitors about the island of Jamaica and our beautiful resorts. However, given present conditions and the outlook for the immediate future, we feel that postponing our reopening is the most prudent decision for everyone involved.”

Sunset at the Palms, Sunset Resorts’ boutique, adults-only resort in Negril, reopened in early July and continues to welcome guests every day. The resort has introduced enhanced cleaning and sanitizing protocols; in-room private check-in; social distancing; daily temperature checking of guests and staff; and strict staff protocols for uniform cleaning, travel to and from work, hand washing and wearing of protective gear.
