Spanish Court Resort

Redefining the vision of a Jamaican paradise, Spanish Court Resort takes a geometric approach to capitalize on ocean views and to bring a minimal South Beach architectural style to the Caribbean island. MKDA updated this 120,000-square-foot resort, set for completion in 2018, by stripping the building of extraneous decorative elements and reinforcing its structural bones to modernize the architecture and to allow the addition of two floors. The open-air lobby frames seaside views that beckon you to plunge into the crystal blue water of the infinity pool that blends seamlessly into the sea. Flanking the lobby, the restaurant and spa appreciate similar breathtaking vistas while also offering world-class services. The beautifully appointed rooms are punctuated with full-height glazing, exterior balconies and private plunge pools on the ground level.

2017 Completion.
