    "...was first opened..."

    I read a passage about Jamaica the other day, but I didn't understand the underlined sentence.
    Can anyone tell me what it means? Is there anything wrong with the grammar?

    "A honeymoon destination, Jamaica offers newlyweds the perfect tropical escape. Beautiful, white-sand beaches and crystal-clear water provide the ideal setting to rest and relax. The all-inclusive resort was first opened Jamaica. Therefore, Jamaicans know all about taking care of guests’ every need."

    Many thanks.

    It needs an "in" before Jamaica.
