Half Moon Royal Villas Resort
The Half Moon Royal Villas occupies 400 acres of beautiful land that is fronted by a two mile white sandy beach, on Jamaica’s north coast. This property is a luxury RockResort establishment. The resort has a total of 230 accommodations of which 197 are luxury rooms and 33 are private villas. When the resort first opened in 1954, being the brainchild of several of the wealthiest business personalities of the day, it only had 43 accommodations. Important people of the period were proudly hosted at the Half Moon Royal Villas; John F Kennedy, and members of the British Royal Family as well. The complex has since been through many renovations, with the central villa becoming an award-winning Spa. The property still has 11 of the original villas remaining.
As of January 2011, the Half Moon Royal Villas went under RockResort Management, adding this prestigious brand name to the already famous resort. Guests today can enjoy thirteen tennis courts, an 18-hole golf-course designed by Robert Trent Sr., horse riding and a Dolphin Lagoon. Children are catered for with the Childrens’ Village and center for teens.
All the luxury accommodations include cable television, stocked mini-fridge, direct dialing telephone, air conditioning, in-room safe, bathrobes, ironing facilities, housekeeping and evening turndown service. All accommodations have a spacious patio or balcony. The Half Moon Royal Villas is also the perfect place to host a wedding.
