Recently Sandals Resorts and Island Outpost celebrated the publication of “Jamaica Vibes” published by Assouline at an over the top rooftop pool party at JIMMY SOHO hosted by Adam Stewart the executive chairman of Sandals Resorts International and Chris Blackwell the legendary hotelier and Island Records founder, along with a mix of models, movie stars, and other guests from the worlds of music, fashion and media.
Stewart addressed the famous crowd inviting them to come to Jamaica for a visit, “Between Island Outpost and Sandals, Chris and I will definitely have a place for you to stay.” The pair own over 10 hotels on the island on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world including Sandals Montego Bay flagship and the recently opened Sandals Dunn’s River. Blackwell owns celebrity magnets Goldeneye, Strawberry Hill and The Caves which regularly attract stars like Grace Jones, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell who are also in the book but couldn’t make it to the celebration. “With the UN in session,” Stewart said, “we are calling this the downtown Jamaican Summit.”
