Film producer Sheila C Johnson announces new resort at Half Moon, Jamaica
By Megan Whitby 23 Dec 2019
Located along two miles of beachfront, Half Moon opened 65 years ago and is managed by Salamander Hotels and Resorts, founded by US film producer Sheila C Johnson, who is also the company’s CEO.
Jamaican beach resort Half Moon Montego Bay is opening a new resort experience and spa called Eclipse at Half Moon, on March 1, 2020.

Located along two miles of beachfront, Half Moon opened 65 years ago and is managed by Salamander Hotels and Resorts, founded by US film producer Sheila C Johnson, who is also the company’s CEO.

"Eclipse is a remarkable addition to Half Moon and the Caribbean's luxury landscape," said Johnson. "It takes vision and foresight to create such a notable experience, and Eclipse will undoubtedly become one of 2020's most sought-after retreats."

The addition has increased the resort’s accommodation capacity to 215 rooms and joined two other resort lodgings: Founders Cove at Half Moon and Rose Hall Villas at Half Moon, which are located at opposite ends of the 400-acre property.

Designed by New York firm Hart Howerton, the addition of Eclipse is part of a strategy to add contemporary amenities to the Half Moon’s offerings.

Half Moon’s resort offers a 12 treatment room spa – called Fern Tree, A Salamander Spa – which includes two overwater bungalows for massages and yoga classes. Guests can visit aromatherapy steamrooms, a sauna and outdoor yoga pavilion. The mix is completed by a relaxation area, meditation labyrinth and Fern Tree Falls and lagoon pool.

The spa is conceptualised to blend into the resort’s surrounding foliage and incorporates local and traditional ingredients into treatments. In addition, Elemis also supplies a range of facials and body treatments.

Additional facilities include 11 floodlit tennis courts, an equestrian centre, infinity pool, children’s club, and a private beachfront and natural swimming cove.

"Eclipse is a distinct experience that honours Half Moon's legacy and character," says Guy Steuart, III, chair of Half Moon. "Guests will discover traditional, elegant architecture amid an abundance of beach and grounds on which to roam – all of which appeals to our loyal guests and the next generation of traveller."
