Leave the Kids at Home and Head to ... The Holiday Inn?

The name Holiday Inn doesn’t usually conjure thoughts of sizzling adults-only escapes to an elegant Caribbean beachfront enclave. Recently, though, the Holiday Inn Resort Montego Bay in Jamaica began delivering something just like that.

The 518-room all-inclusive resort has always catered to couples, of course. Honeymoon and romance packages, as well as a wide range of destination wedding options, are always on offer here.  Still, an award-winning Kid’s Club and tons of activities geared toward children have long given the Montego Bay Holiday Inn more of a kids-and-families feel. “We love our family clients, of course, but it was time to do something special for our adult guests," says Nicola Madden-Greig, group director of marketing and sales and one of the creative minds behind the resort’s new Rosehall Club.

 

Launched in the spring of 2015, the Rosehall Club is an exclusive “hotel within a hotel” concept geared toward adults with no kids in tow. "It builds upon the foundation of our pre-existing adults-only pool, adding more elegance and amenities to create a grown-up oasis within the property," explains Madden-Greig.

Set on the shoreline at the far western edge of the Holiday Inn Resort Montego Bay, the Rose Hall Club includes 52 newly refurbished rooms. Club guests enjoy private check-in (complete with complimentary welcome cocktail) and check-out away from the more bustling main lobby. Distinctive Rosehall Club ID bracelets ensure that guests' resort experience remains at an adult level.

Within the Club, guests enjoy an exclusive air-conditioned lounge, satellite TV, games, books, magazines, snacks and beverages:  this the place to be when you’ve had too much sun. It’s hard to pull away from the beach and pool area at the Rosehall Club, though. This is decidedly a “no-stress” zone, as underscored by the always swinging swim-up bar, hot tub, and exclusive sun beds and beach cabanas. And when you're ready to get out for some adult evening fun, Montego Bay's famous "hip strip" restaurants and clubs are just a short cab ride away.

Rosehall Club guests also get a 20-percent discount on spa services, pre-booked reservations at the resort’s a-la-carte restaurants ... and did we mention no kids allowed? “Families will always remain a cornerstone of our client mix," says Madden-Greig. "With our new Rose Hall Club, though, adults, and especially couples, can enjoy the special services and amenities they require in a resort setting catering expressly to them.”
