Superclubs Breezes Trelawny to close down in May
A major hotel on the island's north coast is to be closed in two months leaving more than 200 workers out of jobs.
The 349 room Breezes Trelawny Resort and Spa will be closed on May 31.
The property has been in operation since 2002.
Chairman of Superclubs, John Issa made the announcement today (March 29).
He explains that the property is being closed due to an impending sale to an overseas hotel operator.
Mr. Issa says once the sale is finalised more details will be announced.
He, however, states that the purchaser plans to upgrade and expand the hotel adding that the proposal was the best one, as the plans will be good for the industry and the people of the area.
Mr. Issa says the over 200 workers will receive their entitlements.
He anticipates that many of them will be reemployed by the new owners.
The hotel's management says guests booked for travel June 1 will be contacted by Superclubs to make alternative arrangements.
Over recent years Superclubs has stopped operating three properties on the north coast: Grand Lido Braco, Breezes Montego Bay and last year, Hedonism 111.
The company had leases for those properties which were not renewed when they expired.
Breezes Trelawny Resort and Spa is the first property owned by Superclubs which is being sold.
