AS THE Sagicor Group stamps its presence on the very competitive tourism sector, the local investors have opened their third Jamaican resort in the garden parish of St Ann.
Last Saturday, the insurance conglomerate officially opened Jewel Paradise Cove in Runaway Bay, sister to their flagship Jewel Dunn’s River and Jewel Runaway Bay. This is Sagicor’s third luxury all-inclusive resort operated by Aimbridge Hospitality.
Speaking during the opening ceremony, Minister of Tourism and Entertainment Dr Wykeham McNeill hailed the group, describing their latest move as proof that Jamaica still boasts a welcoming investment climate and that tourism’s future remains bright.
McNeill noted that in a few short years, Sagicor has become a major player in the sustainable development of the local hotel sector.
“I encourage others to follow in Sagicor’s footsteps,” he said.
Particularly elated at the growing trend of investment by both local and international investors in the tourism sector, McNeill said the Government’s confidence that there is a bright future for tourism is well founded.
New hospitality benchmarks
The minister’s comments come weeks after Sagicor Life Jamaica President and CEO Richard Byles stated: “We continue to set new hospitality benchmarks on the island. The new Paradise Cove Beach Resort Spa emphasises the genuine warmth and service of our 300-strong staff, under the competent direction of veteran Jamaican hotelier and Jewel Paradise Cove general manager, Barbara Burton.”
Added Byles: “The hotel boasts the signature amenities and service levels that are the model for all three Jewel Resorts,” emphasised Byles.
Describing the dynamic financial services group as one of Jamaica’s most committed partners, McNeill said, “An investment in our tourism product is an investment in our people, as it provides employment, exposes our rich cultural heritage to a wider market and generates foreign exchange to support our economy”.
The 225-room resort is the most inclusive of the three Jewel properties and embraces the cultural and adventurous surroundings of the region.
Jewel Paradise Cove includes scuba diving and resort course, sunset cruise, Dunn’s River Falls tour, a shopping tour, complimentary wi-fi and much more as standard in its all-inclusive rate. The resort is also the first to introduce an expanded all-inclusive health, spa and fitness theme, and includes juice and smoothie bars throughout the property, a variety of healthy cuisine options, and an extensive list of watersports, and fitness classes with most activities included in its pricing.
The China Fleet Country Club in Devon has opened its new Aqua Spa after a £500,000 refurbishment of the water facilities.
Following an eight-week project, the new spa features a laconium, salt and aroma steam rooms, Finnish sauna, ice chute, tropical and cold experience showers, relaxation area and heated loungers, making it one of the biggest wet spas in the South West.
The new facility will hopefully boost revenue from China Fleet’s membership programme, as well as allow the club to offer more spa breaks and spa packages.
The Aqua Spa, which opened its doors on December 6, sits alongside the existing Barn Spa, located in a converted barn on the club’s ground, which has six treatment rooms and offers therapies using skincare brands Dermalogica and Spietzia. Though the Barn and Aqua are in different buildings on the China Fleet site, the client journey between the two has been well managed, according to the club’s general manager of China Fleet, Dean Bennett.
Bennett said, “It has been really well received by our customers so far.”
The heat facilities were provided by Anapos, formerly Steamworks, whose portfolio of projects also includes Virgin Active.

Dr. Kanani offers the Invisalign Tooth Straightening System
Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) December 07, 2013
Dr. Kanani, the top dentist in Woodland Hills, is giving first-time patients the chance to learn more about oral healthcare by offering them complimentary consultations at his clinic.
As one of the top dentists in his field, Dr. Kanani is keen on giving back to the community. He hopes that his efforts at educating the public on oral healthcare and the numerous dental procedures available to them will make a positive impact on society.
Dr. Kanani, a renown dentist in Woodland Hills, specializes in many areas of dental health, particularly dental implants. According to Dr. Kanani, this procedure is not very common amongst those from the middle and lower income groups as dental implant cost quite a lot. He wishes to change the public’s perception of dental implants and erase the fear of how much dental implants cost. Aside from dental implants, Dr. Kanani is also skilled at other dental procedures aimed at combating tooth loss.
1. Dental Implants
This renown dentist in Woodland Hills is well-known for his work in dental implants. By using a revolutionary technique, Dr. Kanani has managed to ensure that dental implants cost less than expected. Most of the time, his patients are able to save up to $4,000. Not only that, his patients undergo a much shorter recovery period. Known as the Flap-Less/Drill-Less Surgery method, this Woodland Hills dentist uses several instruments to expand the jawbone, creating a gap into where the dental implant is placed. Conventional methods practiced by other dentists require cutting and drilling and most of the time, patients have to undergo bone graft surgery before the dental implants can be inserted. Dr. Kanani’s Flap-Less/Drill-Less Surgery method is less invasive and makes do without all the unnecessary procedures. Not only does Dr. Kanani’s method of inserting dental implants cost less, it is also less painful. Those who are interested in discussing how much dental implants cost and how long the procedure will take are encouraged to contact Dr. Kanani for more information.
This form of cosmetic dentistry is a non-removable replacement for missing teeth. Bridges are usually made of porcelain fused to metal. These bridges are placed in the gap where the teeth are missing in an attempt to connect the real teeth on either side of the gap. According to this top Woodland Hills dentist, patients who have two or three missing teeth in areas of the mouth that are under less stress, such as the front teeth, are great candidates for this procedure.
Dentures are an affordable and less invasive way of combating tooth loss. Dr. Kanani will first examine the patient’s teeth and mouth to determine which teeth have to be removed. Upon extracting these teeth, Dr. Kanani will assign a set of dentures to the patient. Although many patients go through an adjustment period, all normal functionality and appearance are returned very soon, giving them the chance to resume their regular routine. According to this top dentist from Woodland Hills, patients who have severe gum disease are good candidates for dentures as they are able to remove the dentures to give their gums the care they need.
To take advantage of the holiday season specials on ex-ray and exam and for more information on Dr. Kanani’s wide range of dental procedures, do not hesitate to make an appointment with this Woodland Hills dentist at his clinic.
Potential patients are urged to call (818) 962-1141 or visit woodlandhillsdentalspa(dot)com to make an appointment.
