Half Moon, A RockResort Debuts Multi Million Dollar Renovation
January 28, 2016
The property has reopened the historic Sugar Mill Restaurant, along with updates to the lobby including the addition of Lester's Café, a new coffee shop; and The Cedar Bar, a newly renovated bar and terrace overlooking the ocean.
“The Sugar Mill Restaurant is a well known and favored fine dining experience in Jamaica,” said Sandro Fabris, general manager of Half Moon. “The upgrades to the physical space paired with a new menu featuring the best of modern Jamaican cuisine will give guests and locals alike a reason to revisit this culinary staple for our destination. Furthermore, our enhancements to the lobby with the addition of Lester's Café and upgrades to The Cedar Bar invite a welcomed energy from morning to late evening.”
Nestled in an alcove next to a 17th century water mill is the renovated Sugar Mill. Helmed by Chef de Cuisine Christopher Golding – named “Best Chef in Jamaica” – the restaurant now serves Wagyu beef, known for its distinctive flavor and tenderness perfected by a charcoal cooking technique via Jamaica's only Jasper charcoal broiler oven. This is the first time Wagyu beef has been added to the menu in Jamaica.
The Sugar Mill's new menu also features farm-to-table options using herbs specially grown on the resort's property. Also on the menu is Jamaica's highly prized 50-year-old Appleton Estate rum, said to be the oldest rum available.
As guests enter the lobby, they will be welcomed by aromas from Lester's Café, named after Michael Lester Leszczynski, a well-regarded sea captain and painter whose artwork hangs in the lobby of the hotel. Serving grab and go items throughout the day and certified pure roasted Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee, Lester's Café is a brand new addition to the dining options at Half Moon.
Perfect for a nightcap or a refreshing afternoon drink, the newly upgraded Cedar Bar offers quintessential ocean views and a curated rum selection, some of which are used in the resort's expertly crafted cocktails.
Located 10 minutes from Montego Bay International Airport, Half Moon is an idyllic Caribbean getaway. For additional details, please visit
