Half Moon, A Salamander Resort has made renovations to its Hibiscus neighborhood, which will reopen on Nov. 22.

All 68 rooms and suites of the Hibiscus neighbourhood, located within Half Moon’s legacy Founders Cove resort, have been transformed. These 1- and 2-bedroom beachfront accommodations, which feature adjoining options,were remodelled to reflect the tastes of the luxury traveler, yet still offer Jamaican design elements.

“At Half Moon, we have the luxury of space and our Hibiscus suites are no exception,” says Shernette Crichton, Half Moon’s general manager, in a press statement. “The view is spectacular, while the new decor is both stylized-Caribbean and Half Moon-elegant. We know our new and long-returning guests will be delighted with the enhancements.”

The Hibiscus neighborhood is located adjacent to many of Half Moon’s original and exclusive cottages. The suites feature access to gardens and with many opening onto secluded, private islets, which are perfect for both sunrise and sunset viewing. The renovation features expanded views, new furniture and fresh decor, reimagined patios and balconies, a revitalized exterior, and upgraded technology including larger, smart TVs. In addition, the rooms feature the work of local artisans, including handmade weaves that add substantive texture to the furniture and cabinetry. Additionally, the suites feature artwork from Dready, which is a character and a style of art created by Jamaican-born artist Shane Aquart.

To offer unobstructed views of the Caribbean Sea, glass doors have been installed, and the outdoor patios and terraces offer hanging daybeds or rocking chairs. The bathrooms have undergone a complete transformation with the addition of double showers or larger showers and claw foot tubs, while four ground-floor units have also had outdoor showers fitted with private garden trellises.

All guests at Half Moon can also enjoy a variety of additional activities, including equestrian, watersports, tennis, pickleball and squash; and a wide range of dining options such as the Cedar Bar and Half Moon’s signature restaurant, The Sugar Mill, known for its modern twist on Jamaican cuisine. For relaxation and restoration, guests can also enjoy a Robert Trent Jones-designed golf course, and Fern Tree, A Salamander Spa, which features two overwater bungalows for massage treatments and yoga classes.

Half Moon is currently offering a special promotion to celebrate the reopening of the Hibiscus suites. The Stay More Save More offers travellers a savings of up to 25 percent when a guest stays before Dec. 19, 2021.
