Apple Leisure Group to manage the Sunscape Montego Bay

Apple Leisure Group subsidiary, AMResorts, announced Sunscape Resorts & Spas will open its first resort in Jamaica with the signing of Sunscape Montego Bay. This is AMResorts' third property on the island, and marks the seventh new hotel deal announcement by the company in 2015. 

“Introducing another resort brand from our portfolio in Jamaica is a testament to our strong performance record in the country,” said Alex Zozaya, CEO of Apple Leisure Group. “Apple Leisure Group brings two out of every 10 U.S. guests to the Caribbean, and Jamaica is one of the most popular destinations in the region with more than 2 million visitors in 2014.* The addition of Sunscape Montego Bay allows us to further contribute to the country’s continued tourism growth.”

AMResorts will begin enhancements at the resort in May 2015 to incorporate Sunscape Resorts & Spas’ brand standards. The upgrades will be carefully planned and integrated, allowing guests to continue to enjoy the property during the process. AMResorts will officially assume operations of the resort on Aug. 1, 2015, which will remain under the Sunset Beach Resort, Spa and Water Park, and the Oasis at Sunset name until its official rebranding in late 2015.
