#HyattAllIn: Welcome to Paradise!

Last week I was lucky enough to escape wintery Chicago by heading south to Jamaica. The reason? To officially welcome Hyatt Zilara Rose Hall and Hyatt Ziva Rose Hall to the Montego Bay community with a grand opening gala. And grand it was!

With more than 1,000 guests, travel agents, travel media, the Jamaica Tourist Board, General Manager Carl Hendricks, and the resorts’ associates in attendance – not to mention a special appearance by the prime minister of Jamaica, The Honorable Portia Simpson Miller – everyone celebrated the resorts’ grand opening in style with the beautiful Jamaican waters and sunset as backdrops.
