Royalton Luxury Resorts Announces New All-inclusive Resorts in Jamaica and Saint Lucia

TORONTO, ON—(Marketwired – April 26, 2016) –
Royalton Luxury Resorts is proud to announce four brand–new modern and luxurious all–inclusive resorts in two of the Caribbean's most sought–after vacation destinations. Royalton Luxury Resorts for discerning travellers of all ages and Hideaway at Royalton, an adults–only oasis within a resort, will open on the world–famous Seven Mile Beach in Negril, Jamaica and in a private cove on the coast of Cap Cana, Saint Lucia, as of February 1, 2017.

This award winning hotel brand began welcoming guests of all ages to discover signature All–in Luxury® amenities and extras only a few years ago. In this time, Royalton Luxury Resorts has been able to identify and refine its signature offerings and create the next generation of all–inclusive hotels, from the ground up. This expansion of Royalton has led to a two–fold increase in Jamaica by 573 rooms (with 166 in Hideaway at Royalton Negril) and has created the opportunity to offer 455 luxurious suites in Saint Lucia (with 94 in Hideaway at Royalton Saint Lucia).

“As Royalton Luxury Resorts is becoming an established and successful brand, we now have the ability to build these resorts from the ground up and consider every part of our guest's experience,” said Jordi Pelfort, Managing Director, Blue Diamond Resorts. “We have created signature touches that guests of Royalton and Hideaway can come to expect.”

Each Royalton Luxury Resort promises elegant accommodations where guests rest peacefully between high thread count sheets atop DreamBed™ designed exclusively for Royalton and discover the luxury of signature rain showers or in–suite Jacuzzis. Modern in–room features include USB recharge and Bluetooth audio stations, in–room safe with interior power outlet, satellite television, stocked mini–bar, and a balcony or terrace. Resort–wide All–in Luxury® amenities at Royalton Negril and Royalton Saint Lucia include free Wi–Fi resort–wide for all devices through All–in Connectivity™, gourmet Reservation Free Dining in a choice of stunning restaurants and plenty of entertainment such as the Sports Event Guarantee™ which televises all major North American and European sporting events. Families will enjoy the supervised kids club and age–appropriate teen's lounge, on–site splash parks for refreshing fun and plenty of daily activities. For a premium vacation experience a Diamond Club™ upgrade offers butler service, private beach and pool areas, an exclusive Diamond Club™ Lounge and more. To further enhance the experience, Royalton Negril and Royalton Saint Lucia feature The Royal Spa, a world class health facility committed to improving the wellness of guests.

Hideaway at Royalton Luxury Resorts offers adult guests the All–in Luxury® freedom of spontaneity with the perfect mix of daily water sports, fitness programs, yoga on the beach, or mixology classes beside the pool. The vacation oasis of Hideaway at Royalton Negril and Hideaway at Royalton Saint Lucia both offer privacy and exclusivity found at an adults only retreat with the option to enjoy the adjacent Royalton Luxury Resort's facilities.

Statement of the U.S. Conference of Mayors CEO and Executive Director Tom Cochran on Senate Infrastructure Legislation

WASHINGTON, DC—(Marketwired – April 26, 2016) – U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) CEO and Executive Director Tom Cochran issued the following statement today regarding the Senate's WRRDA legislation:

“The U.S. Conference of Mayors applauds Senators Inhofe and Boxer's bill, S. 2848, as a major step forward to address many of the issues of concern that have been raised by the Mayors of this nation. Mayors are struggling with the issue of rebuilding infrastructure, providing financing, complying with unfunded mandates, and doing it all in a way that remains affordable for their citizens. This bill will provide, among other things, the necessary tools of Integrated Planning, Green Infrastructure, Affordability, as well as new financing tools and funding that will be instrumental as we move forward in helping sustain our infrastructure and provide critical services.

“The measure also authorizes much needed resources to the City of Flint and other cities, which find themselves with a crisis of lead exposure due to their drinking water systems. S. 2848 provides resources to both the public sector and private citizens for lead pipe replacement, loan forgiveness, as well as lead testing in schools and child–care facilities.

“We sincerely thank Senators Inhofe and Boxer for their bipartisan leadership to address our nation's water infrastructure issues.”

The U.S. Conference of Mayors is the official nonpartisan organization of cities with populations of 30,000 or more. There are nearly 1400 such cities in the country today, and each city is represented in the Conference by its chief elected official, the mayor. Like us on Facebook at
