    • History of Royal Plantation

      Royal Plantation, which first opened its doors in the glamorous 1950's as Plantation Inn, was originally part of the sprawling Coconut Grove Estate, owned by Mary Melhado. The resort began its days as a "sister" hotel to the adjacent, Jamaica Inn, operated by husband-and-wife team Cy and Gloria Elkins. Gloria—who came from a prestigious line of hoteliers (the Stuart and Pringle families) who had helped put Jamaica's fledgling tourist industry on the map—decided that the stunning property next door would prove ideal for a supremely elegant inn. So, armed with a stellar reputation and proven, international credentials, Gloria gathered together an impressive group of investors, which included Mr. Howard Wolff of New York, Dr. Lenworth Jacobs of St. Ann's Bay and Mr. Douglas Tucker, a prominent lawyer from Brown's Town, to help make her vision a reality. Quickly and accurately grasping the almost unlimited potential of this venture, these men rapidly joined forces with Gloria, becoming the very first directors of this new hotel, which was to be called—appropriately enough for a former estate—Plantation Inn. Thus, with Howard Wolff as its first Chairman and Len Jacobs as its first Vice-Chairman, Plantation Inn opened its doors to much fanfare and immediate, meteoric success in 1957.
