Melia said that its first Jamaica resort, the Melia Braco Village, will open late this year in Trelawny, 30 miles east of Montego Bay on Jamaica's north coast.

The 226-room hotel has been closed since May 2013 and is undergoing a renovation. It had operated as Braco Beach Resort & Spa.

Melia will manage the all-inclusive resort in a joint venture with the Jamaican government.
