Celebrated hotel brand and management company Dream Hotel Group announces plans to open The Bight by Dream Hotel Group with 90 guest rooms and suites and multiple food and beverage concepts in the Turks and Caicos in 2022. The development is led by EA Group, a dynamic and successful team of construction, real estate and hospitality companies in the Turks and Caicos Islands for more than 25 years.

“EA Group’s roots are based in the Turks and Caicos. They have an intimate knowledge of the culture, as well as extensive expertise and understanding of the market. They are innovators with a vision to bring something new, fresh and authentic to the region,” said Dream Hotel Group CEO Jay Stein.

“Grace Bay Beach is one of the world’s most desirable beaches and demand for boutique experiences in the Turks and Caicos is thriving, making it an ideal destination for the Dream Hotel Group flag. We’re fortunate to collaborate with owners like EA Group who share our ambitions to grow and develop one-of-a-kind lifestyle experiences in the Caribbean and beyond.”

Setting a new benchmark for hospitality in the Turks and Caicos, The Bight by Dream Hotel Group promises authentic experiences amidst contemporary amenities and services. Located on seven acres of lush botanical gardens in The Bight neighborhood of award-winning Grace Bay Beach, the boutique hotel will feature 90 spacious guest rooms with soaring, unobstructed ocean views and multiple food and beverage venues, including a beachfront café, garden-to-table restaurant, rum distillery and The Barn, a 140-seat private event space for intimate gatherings, film screenings, art shows and more, as well as a state-of-the-art health and wellness center with x-fit gym, yoga studio and spa, two inviting pools and access to Grace Bay Beach with complimentary beach chairs, umbrellas and all the toys to make the most of your beach experience, as well as off-the-beaten-path island excursions for those wanting to explore the Turks and Caicos through the eyes of a local.

The Turks and Caicos Islands are recognized as a top vacation destination in the Caribbean and the world. Found off the northeast coast of Providenciales, Grace Bay Beach is the hallmark of the Turks and Caicos Islands. Recently named “World’s Leading Beach Destination” by the World Travel Awards and voted “#1 World’s Best Beach” by TripAdvisor’s Traveler’s Choice Awards in 2018, Grace Bay Beach is the recipient of many designations and undeniably one of the Turks and Caicos’ biggest draws, attracting thousands of tourists and new residents from abroad every year.

“As one of the most sought after and naturally beautiful destinations in the world, the Turks and Caicos Islands have proven year over year to be the market leaders for hotel tourism and real estate sales in the Caribbean,” added Jeff Donnelly, Vice President of Development, Dream Hotel Group. “The Bight by Dream Hotel Group is an exciting collaboration between some of the best minds in hospitality, and I’m thrilled to bring this partnership forward.”

“To start, the location is sensational, my wife and I sought to acquire the land for over seven years,” commented Ryan Jones, founder of EA Group. “The elevation of the hotel with ocean views from every guest room and amenity, and one thousand feet of Grace Bay Beach access made the opportunity irreplaceable. Dream Hotel Group is an ideal partner for us. They have a strong team, an aligned approach to design and hospitality, and a U.S. footprint that addresses major Turks and Caicos feeder cities.”

The Bight by Dream Hotel Group fills a deep void in the current Turks and Caicos lifestyle hotel and real estate market. The project is a condo-hotel with 68 units available for sale by Turks & Caicos Sotheby’s International Realty. Buyers of units will have the unique opportunity to own a special piece of Turks and Caicos, enjoy the amenities, services and benefits of a By Dream Hotel Group hotel, and share in hotel guest revenues generated by their unit.

By Dream Hotel Group is a curated collection of independent hotels that fosters each property’s unique identity. Whether adaptive reuse or new build, By Dream Hotel Group blends intelligent and bespoke design with thoughtfully curated programming to deliver exceptional lifestyle experiences that entertain, connect and best serve the culture and community of its locale. In addition to The Bight by Dream Hotel Group, the company recently announced the signing of Emma & Elissa by Dream Hotel Group in Playa del Carmen, Mexico opening in 2023, and plans to announce future By Dream Hotel Group locations in new and emerging destinations worldwide in the coming months.

With 16 hotels open today and another 20+ locations in various stages of development worldwide, Dream Hotel Group remains one of the fastest growing independent lifestyle hotel companies in the world.

Family Fun Abounds in Ocho Rios at Moon Palace Jamaica

Published

on

All-inclusive resorts are an amazing option for families in search of the perfect shared getaway.

Parents looking for relaxation and a reprieve from daily pressures can certainly appreciate not having to sweat every individual expenditure while on vacation and instead settling on an up-front cost that allows adults and kids alike to go hog wild when they reach their destination.

At Moon Palace Jamaica, a Palace Resorts property situated near the celebrated seaside town of Ocho Rios, all-inclusive really means that it’s all covered, from luxurious accommodations and upscale amenities to world-class dining, 24-hour room service, minibar, premium satellite TV channels, wireless internet access, free calls within North America and a whole host of on-site activities designed to appeal to every age group.

The 700-room resort is located directly on Jamaica’s north coastal beach, where the sparkling Caribbean Sea virtually calls out to guests to come splash in its dazzling waters and warm themselves on the tropical sands.

With use of non-motorized watersports equipment included in their stay, kids and grown-ups might want to try boogie-boarding, snorkeling, paddleboarding, kayaking or sailing a Hobie cat as a family. Once the tribe has had their sand and saltwater for one day, there’s always more aquatic fun to be had at any of four family-friendly outdoor swimming pools.

The resort’s kids’ club, called the ‘Playroom,’ houses state-of-the-art activity spaces that cater to kids whose ages are four and up. They’ll stay entertained for hours in areas filled with building blocks, creativity areas, kitchen play area, ball pit, indoor playground, movies, video games and even a mini-stage to host kids’ karaoke.

Outdoors, there’s a dedicated kiddie pool and children’s water park, plus areas for taking out bikes and rideable cars.

The trendy ‘Wired’ teen lounge is designed especially for kids twelve and over, featuring flat-screen TVs, video games, arcade games, billiards, air hockey and foosball tables, and serving up slushies and frozen virgin cocktails.

With all this on offer, it’s possible that parents will find their teenagers spending more time on their own, with their peers, than they’d have guessed.

Parents who prefer to enjoy a little adults-only downtime who have children under four are also able to arrange for babysitting services through the resort for an additional fee.

Where kids are concerned, what’s on the menu at their next meal can also be a pressing question. Guests of Moon Palace Jamaica will find abundant options available to keep youngsters satisfied, with everything from poolside pizza and snacks to gourmet dining included in their stay.

The Boulangerie, reminiscent of a Parisian café, is particularly convenient, serving up fresh pastries, crepes, sweet treats, ice cream, flavored coffees and more, 24 hours a day. Gourmet Corner also dishes out a variety of quick-serve favorites, like pizza, paninis and even sushi, for casual dining or to take on-the-go.

Five other sumptuous, dine-in restaurants on the property offer a mouth-watering variety of cuisines with options to please the palates of adults and minors alike.

Right now, Moon Palace Jamaica is offering a special deal that provides free airport transfers, up to $1,500 in resort credit, and free stays for kids and teens.
