One of the Caribbean's largest water parks to open in Jamaica late 2014
Published on June 19, 2014 Email To Friend    Print Version

ST ANN, Jamaica -- The island of Jamaica will soon have one of the Caribbean's most diverse oceanfront water parks in the entire Caribbean with the Jewel Runaway Bay Water Park set to open in December 2014.

Senior vice president Caribbean operations and development for Aimbridge Hospitality Rich Cortese said, "True to our mission of delivering on the guest experience, we are very excited to soon be offering a very unique waterpark experience. There are very few places in the Caribbean where a waterpark of this stature is situated overlooking the Caribbean Sea. The new waterpark will be just steps to the beach."

Encompassing towering water slides and family raft rides, the new water park also offers secluded, chic private cabanas and waterfall coves with a raindrop umbrella feature, known to reduce stress with soothing and therapeutic water streams. Located directly on the beach, The Jewel Runaway Bay Water Park is replete with a beach entrance featuring in-floor jetting geysers.

Jewel Resorts partnered with SplashTacular Waterslides, Waterpark Attractions firm and H2O Design to conceptualize the park's kid-friendly features along with touches that appeal to parents and individual travelers including natural design elements and a diverse selection of water features using the latest technology.

Designed for guests of all ages, the 9,000 sq. ft water park will bring more than 232,334 gallons of aquatic fun, excitement and relaxation to this all-ages Jewel resort in Jamaica.

General manager Scott Robbins stated, "This one-of-a-kind water park is not just for kids or the young at heart, there are features for everyone. Families, young children, teen, tweens and multi-generations, everyone loves a water park!"
