TORONTO, ON--(Marketwired - September 22, 2016) - Sunwing Vacations is delighted to announce the early opening of three highly-anticipated luxury resorts in Jamaica. Originally expected to open on February 1, 2017, Royalton Negril Resort & Spa and the adults-only Hideaway at Royalton Negril resort will now be ready as of January 15, 2017. In addition, Royalton Blue Waters in Montego Bay will also be ready a few weeks sooner than expected and will be welcoming Sunwing customers as of November 1, 2016.

Coinciding with the addition of these high demand luxury resorts, the tour operator will be expanding their flying schedule to offer a twice-daily service between Toronto and Montego Bay on Saturdays from December 24, 2016 to April 29, 2017, in addition to the daily service already offered year round. Customers from Montreal can also take advantage of increased flexibility to reach one of the tour operator's most popular island destinations this winter, with the addition of a Sunday flight between December 18, 2016 and March 12, 2017 to complement the regular Friday and Saturday flights.

Andrew Dawson, President of Tour Operations for Sunwing Vacations commented, "Royalton Luxury Resorts is one of our top partners and we were delighted to hear that the construction projects in Jamaica are running ahead of schedule, with all three properties now at the finishing touches stage. Royalton Luxury Resorts are consistently popular amongst our customers of all ages in search of a luxury all inclusive experience and we are sure that these new additions will be well received. The news that we will be increasing our flight services from both Montreal and Toronto could not come at a better time."

Director of Tourism for Jamaica, Paul Pennicook, also welcomed the news adding, "Hearty congratulations on the early opening of the new Royalton properties. We are thrilled to welcome these three new resorts into our luxury product mix on the island. Adding over 800 more rooms to our stock at the start of the winter season is a significant boost to our offerings. The increased flight service to Montego Bay is another tremendous enhancement to our accessibility, making it easier for Canadian visitors to travel to Jamaica this winter."

Set on one of Jamaica's most legendary beachfronts, Royalton Negril Resort & Spa promises to combine a breathtaking natural setting with an array of luxurious amenities including unlimited reservation-free dining, stylish outdoor lounges and nightly entertainment. Younger travellers will appreciate the extensive pool complex, children's splash park and complimentary kids and teen clubs. Families can also take advantage of a variety of land and non-motorized water sports, such as kayaking or snorkelling, also offered at no extra charge.

Hideaway at Royalton Negril is an adults only haven nestled in the heart of the resort, that offers couples and honeymooners alike a tranquil enclave where they can enjoy a dedicated beach area, adults only infinity pool, and their own bar and restaurant while still taking advantage of all the features of the wider resort.

Royalton Blue Waters in Montego Bay will offer lavish accommodation options (including swim-out suites), world-class spa, varied dining across 11 restaurants, children's club and teen hangout and complimentary watersports from the resort's own beachfront and evening entertainment. A Sunwing SplashWorld™resort, vacationers also enjoy full exchange privileges with the adjoining Royalton White Sands' that offers an on-site splash park and water slides and lazy river.

All Sunwing packages to Jamaica include return flights on Sunwing Airlines where vacationers can sit back and relax with award-winning on board Champagne Service that includes a complimentary sparkling wine toast, in-flight entertainment and a generous 23kg baggage allowance.
