Hilton Rose Hall Overview

 

 

 

 

 

 

The 2018 Feast of Tabernacles will be held at the 4.5 Star Hilton Rose Hall Resort & Spa, Montego Bay, Jamaica for the 2nd year in a row.  Services will be held in a very modern air-conditioned ballroom located in the same building as the guest rooms.  (A short stroll down the hall and down the elevator, and you will be at the ballroom!)   The ballroom can comfortably hold 500 members with an attached breakout room for mothers with infants.  Take a moment to review their web site at: https://www.rosehallresort.com/

The resort sits on 400 acres, with only the ocean and a golf course for neighbors, helping you create your own private space to meditate in and to picture the coming Kingdom of God.  There is a 4-mile paved walking path and many flower-filled gardens to help transport you into a millennium-like setting. The Hilton Rose Hall has one of the longest and most private beaches in Jamaica (now 2500 feet), with no outside vendors to bother you and hammocks throughout the entire property for reading and quiet time.

We are planning to have 2 teen / pre-teen Bible studies on the beach, Biblical and Christian Living seminars, and a hymn sing-a-long to give even more worship opportunities, in addition to the daily services.

The Hilton Rose Hall is a stress-free choice for families, providing all-inclusive meals/drinks, a variety of activities, and even connecting room options. Some of you won’t want to leave the resort.  There are 2 pools, a lazy river, the island’s longest water slide, a kid’s club, 2 ping pong tables, and numerous beach games like volleyball and soccer, to keep even the most active children occupied.  With 6 restaurants, a snack bar, Jerk chicken shack and two coffee bars, you will never have to worry about the little ones getting hungry.   And for Mom, there is a free shuttle to The Shoppes at Rose Hall, a shopping complex that includes 27 shops.  For more information: http://theshoppesatrosehall.com/

For those looking for an active Feast site, the Hilton Rose Hall has 6 tennis courts, 2 sand volleyball courts, a soccer field, and a basketball court. All of your non-motorized water sports, like kayaking, wind surfing, paddle boarding and sailing are included.  Motorized water sports and even scuba diving can be arranged (see website for details and prices). Next door to the resort is the 18-hole Cinnamon Hill Golf Course (additional fees required for golf).

Tours can be planned for those who would like to get out and explore Jamaica. We have a trusted partner in Jamaica Tours, the #1 tour company in Jamaica.  Jamaica Tours has been providing excellent service to the Church for many years, and they truly go out of their way to follow through on all of our requests.  Successful tours in the past have included Dunn’s River Falls, Snorkeling, the Luminous Lagoon, and Martha Brae River Rafting. 

The Hilton Rose Hall is a 15-20 minute drive from Jamaica's largest airport, the Sir Donald Sangster International Airport. Air Jamaica and several North American and European airlines run their Caribbean hub in "MoBay" (Sangster International Airport) connecting the island with the United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, and Canada. Miami can be reached within 70 minutes. The southern U.S. cities of Charlotte, Houston, Atlanta, and Tampa can be reached by nonstop flights in less than three hours. Other locations like Philadelphia, New York City, Toronto, Washington D.C., and Montreal can be reached in under four hours.

 

Expected attendance is approximately 500.
