A new luxury casino – Harmony Cove Resort
As much as Jamaica wanted to be a top destination for gamblers all over the world, it was practically impossible. The main reason – there were no high-class casinos available on site. However, this is just about to change. Why? A luxury casino is going to fulfill the dream of so many players and travelers out there. The Harmony Cove Resort is set to take ground in 2017.
The government supports the project
Even the prime minister is enchanted by this project. According to his recent statements, this luxury casino is extremely important for the state. It will attract travelers and gamblers from all over the world. Therefore, the economy is expected to flourish.
And this is not all! Local news unveiled that the place will not only serve as an impressive casino, but it will also have numerous other amenities. For instance: hotel rooms, restaurants or shops.
The main players in the development of the project are the Harmonisation Limited and Tavistock Group.
A promising luxury casino
And as we’re not talking about just a mediocre casino, the project is set to develop in several stages.
In stage one, that will begin next year, there are plans for the construction of 1,000 guest rooms. In stage one it is also planned the construction of the retail space (this includes: food and beverage space).
The investments are expected to cost more than $1 billion.
Stage 2 will include the construction of the gambling area and casino.
How big is this place going to be?
At the end of the project, the plans show that guests here will enjoy:
- 5.000 guest rooms
- An impressive casino
- International restaurants
- A marina area
- A golf area
- And more surprises to come…
A breathtaking location
As rumors say – this is going to be the best luxury casino in Central America. This resort is located near the Jamaica’s northern coast and it will spread over 2,325 acres with ocean front.
Moreover, it’s 30 minutes away from the Montego Bay International Airport and within 35 minutes from the Ocho Rios. Ocho Rios is famous for its numerous cruise ship industry.
As a result, there is no wonder why some say that this resort will have no trouble in competing for the best resort in the Carribean’s.
The legal process
The competition to get the preliminary approval for an approved integrated resort was not easy at all. The Harmony Cove resort was one of the two resorts who got the official preliminary approval. But the efforts will not stop here. The resort has to meet certain guidelines in order for it to obtain the casino license too. For instance, it will need to have at least 2,000 guest rooms finished within the first stage of the project.
All in all, the Harmony Cover Resort is said to be one of the most ambitious projects ever started by the government. Critics even state that it’s a promising resort that will shortly become famous all over the world.
So stay tuned to find out more about this luxury casino soon to be started – The Harmony Cover Resort.
