The Minister of Tourism Edmund Bartlett has applauded the pending opening of ROK Hotel Kingston, hailing the development on the Kingston waterfront as an invaluable investment that will add to the revitalisation of the capital.

Following a recent meeting with hotel stakeholders, Bartlett said the hotel’s opening is coming at a very opportune time and aligns with the ministry’s push for the overall development of the city.


“This investment is quite timely as we are taking aggressive steps to position Kingston as a vibrant urban tourism destination and developing its surrounding areas to offer a variety of authentic cultural and entertainment experiences through music, food, art, and adventure. The continued show of confidence by investors, even at this challenging time, is evidence that Jamaica is still a coveted destination and a powerful global brand,” said Bartlett.
