Apple Leisure Group (ALG) today announced Breathless Montego Bay Resort & Spa was honored with the Development of the Year Award at The Caribbean Hotel & Resort Investment Summit (CHRIS). The awards ceremony took place at the conference held at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami on May 18, 2018. The award recognizes a newly built, redeveloped, or repositioned hotel or resort that opened in the Caribbean region between January 1, 2017 and December 31, 2017.

AMResorts, one of the companies of Apple Leisure Group (ALG), opened its doors to the highly-anticipated Breathless Montego Bay Resort & Spa, the brand’s first resort in the destination, in February 2017. The modern 5-story adults-only resort is surrounded by Montego Bay’s Marine Park and boasts a chic design with state-of-the-art technology in each of its 150 suites by providing in-room tablets and free Wi-Fi. Some of the resort’s highlights include seven specialty dining experiences, five trendsetting bars and lounges, 24-hour room service, fire pits, tailored butler service in over half the suites, and the only rooftop pool and bar in Jamaica, which offers a spectacular 360-degree view of the ocean, bay & mountains. Also included in the Breathless lifestyle experience is full access to all amenities and facilities at the nearby Secrets Wild Orchid Montego Bay and Secrets St. James Montego Bay.

The Caribbean Hotel & Resort Investment Summit (CHRIS) has over a decade of experience in bringing the hotel and tourism investment communities together in the Caribbean and is known as the Caribbean’s most noteworthy hotel investment conference. The conference immediately followed the Hotel Opportunities Latin America (HOLA) conference. The back-to-back nature of the two events provided a venue for those in the hotel investment community interested not only in the Caribbean, but also in Latin America, to conduct their business while in Miami. CHRIS and HOLA are produced by the Northstar Travel Group, in association with Burba Hotel Network (BHN).
