The parish of Hanover is to benefit from the addition of 900 hotel rooms at the Grand Palladium Jamaica Resort and Spa in Point, Hanover. Ground is expected to be broken as soon as the requisite licences and permits have been granted. The addition of 900 additional luxury suites and other facilities, at the hotel operated by Spanish Hotel chain, Fiesta Hotel Group, is expected to provide employment opportunities for Hanover residents.
In the meantime, training is already under way in preparation for the staffing requirements of an expanded hotel. Training of potential employees began as early as January. Approximately 25 persons per month have been trained since the start of the hotel.
