‘Stay at one, play at two’

Jamaica Gleaner - - HOSPITALITY JAMAICA -

RE­GIONAL AND mar­ket­ing man­ager for Blue Di­a­mond Re­sorts, the man­age­ment com­pany for the Roy­al­ton fleet of ho­tels, Kerry Ann Quallo Casserly, said both Roy­al­ton Blue Waters and its sis­ter property, Roy­al­ton White Sands, have their unique­ness “that makes them spe­cial”.

“The kid­dies’ area at both re­sorts is a pop­u­lar fea­ture,” she said. “Ab­so­lutely, the best fam­ily re­sorts you will find any­where. You can leave your kids be­tween 8 a.m. and 8 p.m . ... We will take care of them while par­ents can go and en­joy their own time away. That’s what makes us spe­cial.” She also spoke glow­ingly about the Lazy River.

The Lazy River is a pool in which you sit in a tube and al­low the cur­rent to take you lazily through the re­sort’s pool area,” Quallo Casserly ex­plained. “This has grown and is still grow­ing, in pop­u­lar­ity and is also a part of our mar­ket­ing pro­gramme. To say peo­ple are in love with the Lazy River would be putting it mildly.”

Quallo Casserly fur­ther shared that room count on both prop­er­ties is a com­bined 579 rooms, with Roy­al­ton White Sands boast­ing 351 and Roy­al­ton Blue Waters 228. The staff ra­tio she said is two to one.

And is there a stark dif­fer­ence be­tween both prop­er­ties? “The Roy­al­ton Blue Waters is all suites,” she said. “It’s all in lux­ury, an allinclu­sive fam­ily re­sort, of­fer­ing the best bang for your buck! Ac­tu­ally, we have a stay-at-one, play-at-two ex­pe­ri­ence spe­cial go­ing on.”
