Crane Ridge to Reopen as Mystic Ridge Resort

Janet Silvera of the Jamaica Gleaner reports that the Crane Ridge Resort in Ocho Rios, St Ann, which was closed earlier this year because of high maintenance and utility costs, has been acquired by businessman Michael Drakulich, and will reopen under his Mystic Mountain brand. Drakulich and three international partners will take over a third of the resort, and plan to spend $1.8 million to refurbish the property and rebrand it as Mystic Ridge Resort.

Drakulich’s objective is to reopen at the start of the winter tourist season in December. He noted that when finished, the hotel will have 22 new standard and five new deluxe rooms, 10 one-bedroom apartments and 10 two-bedroom apartments, all with balconies and views of Ocho Rios and the Caribbean Sea. He plans to use the reputation of Mystic Mountain to augment and create innovative packaging. Guests staying at Mystic Ridge will be afforded entrance to Mystic Mountain as part of various room and food and beverage packages.
