Jamaica's Premier Event Backdrop
Located on 16 acres of pristine, white sand beachfront in Montego Bay's elite enclave of Rose Hall, only a 15 minute drive from Montego Bay’s Sangster International Airport, The Palmyra Resort & Spa offers residents and guests unparalleled indulgence in a quaint village setting. A buzz of steadily increasing activity, the luxury resort has opened its gorgeous private beach to special events. A spectacular backdrop for any unique occasion, the magnificent seaside venue has already hosted several celebrations with different decorations and themes.
With several successful events under his belt and more in the works at the ultra chic resort, General Manager Lester Scott and his team have impressed many patrons with their flair for creating exceptional backdrops befitting any occasion. The traditional Indian wedding reception for 300 people held in September, 2010, amazed everyone who saw the transformation on the beach of The Palmyra. To create artistic and unique events with supreme attention to detail for his clientele, Scott collaborates with Jamaica’s largest floral provider, Dr. Paulette Hossman of Tai Flora Services Ltd. and her dedicated team of professionals.

While the beach venue has accommodated events with up to 1,000 people, it can comfortably host up to 2,000 people. 2010 events hosted at The Palmyra beach include the Jamaica Jazz & Blues Media Launch Party, Mojo 6 LPGA Farewell Party and The Vertigo White Party. And with each affair, Scott has pushed the envelope and taken the client’s vision to another level. Says Barry Bonito of ADS Global; “One minute it was the immaculate white, sand beach I am used to, and the next it was this dreamlike setting with couches, drapery and mood lighting.”

“There are no ‘cookie-cutter’ events at The Palmyra Resort & Spa,” states the General Manager. Striving to create special memories and moments in a way that only The Palmyra can, the resort can accommodate everything from a private, romantic beach experience for 2 people up to a 2,000 person event with floating stages and fireworks. The creative staff is determined to push the limits to make each event take on a life of its own, and Scott is already busy planning a New Years Eve Party that people will not soon forget.

To ensure each event is special, The Palmyra team draws heavily on the experience of Executive Chef Scott Simpson, who came to The Palmyra after a long tenure with the Marriot family. Since arriving in Jamaica, Simpson has established relationships with local farmers and immersed himself in the local environment and cuisine, resulting in inventive and impressive menus. The talented Chef Simpson takes the time to create menus that expand on his clients’ ideas, exceed their expectations and really ‘wow’ their guests. “The Palmyra absolutely offers the flexibility of any backdrop or environment you wish to promote, coupled with a unique menu to emulate the setting,” comments Scott.


With a full service restaurant and bar with plenty of terrace space, The Palmyra Clubhouse poses another excellent event venue for meetings, conferences and weddings. Overlooking an elegant palm tree-lined pool and the beachfront promenade, the Clubhouse features extensive meeting, convention and function space including a ballroom, six convention and meeting rooms and stunning event lawns and terraces available for lavish outdoor functions. Set 300 ft. into the Caribbean Sea, the ocean gazebo poses the perfect spot for an intimate wedding. The Palmyra Clubhouse has already hosted several artfully orchestrated events.


With The Palmyra developer approved for a casino license, The Palmyra has spurred the creation of the island’s first integrated casino & resort development, ‘Celebration Jamaica’, a US$1.8B master plan set to be rolled out on 65 acres of beachfront property in Rose Hall. The country’s first integrated casino resort project will bring a new and sought-after entertainment option to tourists visiting the north coast of Jamaica featuring sports book and table games such as Roulette, Craps, Blackjack and Baccarat.

The ground-breaking project includes a 1,500 room main Resort & Casino building, with a 75,000 square foot Casino and Sports Book, a state-of-the-art nightclub, a ballroom and an array of restaurants, function and retail spaces. In addition to the main building, the project boasts a marina, several secluded beaches and a host of premier entertainment, attractions and features located just a stone-throw away from the brand new 2,500 person capacity Montego Bay Convention Centre.
