Here at HotelChatter, we read about hotel furniture on a (far) too-regular basis—mostly in press releases about newly-renovated hotels, or the occasional hotel furniture sale. A lot of it goes in one ear and out the other. But when we learned of a resort in Jamaica that was making its own furniture, we decided it was worth a closer look.
Husband-and-wife team Braxton and Debbie Moncure stumbled upon the un-developed land of Bluefields Bay in 1981 (at the suggestion of a local friend), and quickly set about converting the property into one of Jamaica's most coveted all-inclusive luxury resorts. Now, with the help of their two kids, Houston and Rachel—plus a team of 50 locally-employed staffers—the family continues to grow Bluefields into a diverse, artistic, sustainable hotel community, whose six villas just so happen to boast some killer seafront views.
