Terra Nova was originally a colonial mansion built in 1924 on 10
acres of land by Mr. Harold Alexander as a wedding gift to his wife.
After changing ownership twice, it was officially opened as a restaurant
and hotel in 1959. The gracefully balustraded Terra Nova Hotel presently
stands proudly on 2 1/2 acres of tropically landscaped grounds with
the famous Blue Mountains as a backdrop.
mid-town location is conveniently close to the major business district
of New Kingston but still offers the seclusion and quiet elegance
needed to "recharge" during a busy schedule, along with the very
personalised service and excellent food for which we are so well

range in size from 140 square feet to 2,200 square feet to accommodate

and cocktail receptions. The facilities are extremely popular and
are well patronised by Jamaican business people "in the know".

35 years. A welcoming smile, a personal greeting and impeccable
service are the constant indicators of the unique Terra Nova touch
and the insurance for successful meetings and banquets.
