Gently resting in the ever-coveted Montego Bay on a 100-acre former pineapple, allspice, and coconut plantation, the Round Hill Hotel and Villas in Jamaica is a sanctuary of low-key luxury and timeless glamour.
With lush gardens, secluded golden beaches, and an exceptional staff, Round Hill has attracted American and European socialites for decades. Condé Nast Traveler Magazine Gold List recognized the resort for consistently striving for excellence, awarding the second-highest rating for any Caribbean resort. Dining at Round Hill is unparalleled, as world-class chefs prepare complex and varied entrées with the finest ingredients and artistically elaborate presentations. Other unique resort features include meeting and event facilities, custom wedding accommodations, and nightly entertainment. The hotel operates in the winter season with a full-time staff of 220; about 160 staff members have been with the Round Hill for more than 15 years.
The Spa at Round Hill is located in a beautifully restored 18th-century plantation house on ten acres of beachfront lawn. The facilities include an indoor and outdoor fitness center with an instructor, walking and jogging paths, full-service beauty salon, seven body treatment rooms as well as an outdoor treatment area, set amidst abundant gardens. Garden tours are available on Fridays. The waterfront lawn is used for afternoon yoga classes or massages by the sea. A kids' club and babysitting/childcare services are also available.
Resort guests can choose between 27 individually owned villas and 74 suites, each with their own personality and refined esthetic qualities. Living rooms convey a light Caribbean feel, with the trade winds passing through. Each villa features up to five bedrooms; a pillow menu is available and extra thick mattresses provide comfort during sleep. In the kitchen, meals are prepared by private chefs and are served in dining rooms or garden areas. All villas face west and enjoy gorgeous views of sunsets from elegant verandahs. Complimentary wireless Internet access is included.
