Jamaican Government and China in discussions to lift visa restriction on Jamaicans
The Jamaican Government has conditionally waived visa requirements for tourists from China travelling to the island as it moves to boost visitor arrivals from that Asian country.
Message from the CEO-Chris Jarrett, on the 30th Anniversary of Jartena Apartments Limited
Upon reflection of the journey from day one, back in 1982, it gives me a nostalgic feeling about the growth we have undergone as a group. It’s been a humbling experience to have guests who have continually stayed with us throughout these thirty years. I feel honoured to be part of a company celebrating 30 years of service in the tourism sector. It has not been without its challenges. I learned early on that as a hotelier, one must be a diplomat, a democrat, an autocrat, an acrobat and a doormat. Some of the titles took longer to learn than others.
Situated in the heart of New Kingston, Jamaica, this Conde' Nast Traveler-recommended hotel is a social, entertainment and business hub. Altamont Court's central location places it close to two airports; marinas; wharfs; several high commissions and embassies; major convention sites; local and international banks; couriers and money transfer services; art galleries; museums; nightclubs and entertainment centers.
