The final touches are being added to the 431 adults-only suites at Eden Bay, the latest addition to Ocean by H10 Hotels, nestled in Coral Springs, Trelawny. One already completed block of the suites began welcoming guests last week, at specially discounted rates. The expectation is that all 431 rooms will be available for the official opening on December 16.
Eden Bay shares the same expansive beachfront property as the Ocean Coral Springs, opened a year ago. The total room count, when Eden Bay is completed, will be 944.
The price tag for the expansion was not available but Sales Director Tanesha Clarke told LetsTravelCaribbean.com it’s a ‘huge investment’ that signals that ‘travel is back’.
Ground was broken for both blocks of Eden Bay in 2019, a move to cater to adults looking for the H10 brand of laid back luxury. Guests will still have access to all the comforts of the more high-activity Ocean Coral Springs which has a bowling alley, games room and a kids’ playground among its long list of amenities.
According to Group and Weddings Sales Manager Simone Clarke-Kirlew, the property is popular with locals on the weekends. For them, there is an on-going special rate of US$213 per person, based on double occupancy, if they book before November 14. For bookings made from the 15th to the 25th of the month, the rate is $159 per person.
Many international guests, as is expected, come from Jamaica’s main markets including the US and Canada, which Clarke-Kirlew said is “slowly opening up now”. Another major market is the UK, via flights from TUI, the world’s largest tourism company. TUI’s six flights a week will fill about 2,000 seats and generate 10,000 room nights at hotels — including Eden Bay and Coral Springs at Ocean by H10 Hotels.
