Reservations are open for the Eclipse at Half Moon, which is set to open on March 1 as the third accommodations option at the Half Moon resort in Montego Bay.

The new addition features 57 accommodations, two restaurants, three bars, a market cafe, a Fern Tree spa, an infinity pool and private beachfront with a natural swimming cove.

Of the rooms, 32 are located in cottage-style buildings, and 16 rooms are within four estate homes.

The new Great House will have eight rooms and one ocean suite. The traditional design of the Great House is inspired by Jamaican culture and history with shutters, vibrant colors and local artwork.

All the Eclipse buildings are set back from the beach and offer a wide lawn and vantage points for sunrises and sunsets.

Framing the entrance to the Great House is a large guango tree, also known as a rain tree, and it is one of more than 70 trees replanted during the construction of the Eclipse project.

The Great House will serve as the arrival and check-in area for Half Moon's leisure guests, while groups will be welcomed at the airy lobby in West Bay that has long served as the reception area for all guests.

Founders Cove (130 rooms) and Rose Hall Villas (28 villas, each with several guestrooms) are located at opposite ends of the 400-acre property and house the resort's current room inventory. It will total 215 rooms and suites when Eclipse opens.

Half Moon is managed by U.S.-based Salamander Hotels & Resorts.
