Miami-based architecture and interior design firm MKDA announced its selection as lead architect for the $12.5 million redevelopment of a resort hotel in Montego Bay, Jamaica.

The long-closed Breezes Montego Bay Hotel will reopen after the redevelopment under a new name, The Spanish Court Hotel Montego Bay. It will be the second hotel with the Spanish Court brand in addition to one in Kingston, Jamaica, which caters primarily to business travelers.

“We anticipate opening as a four-star resort, but hope that the innovative, Miami-influenced architecture … and world-class amenities will award us with a five-star rating,” hotelier Chris Issa, founder of Crissa Group and owner of both Spanish Court Hotel properties, said in a prepared statement.

The Spanish Court Hotel Montego Bay has 120 rooms and spans 120,000 square feet. Each room will have spa-like bathrooms equipped with Roman tubs and sauna showers.

MKDA’s redesign of the hotel’s exterior will remove Mediterranean-inspired decorative elements in favor of clean, contemporary lines.

MKDA also designed an open-air lobby that frames views of the property’s infinity-style swimming pool, a restaurant and spa that flank the lobby, and a rooftop bar, café and gym.
