A former pineapple plantation near Montego Bay has now become an iconic luxury resort. What is it about Round Hill that makes it such a magnet for the rich and famous? Round Hill is where Jacqueline and JFK spent their honeymoon, where Rodgers and Hammerstein wrote the Sound of Music and where Alfred Hitchcock got sunburn. After 50 years Round Hill has a million stories to tell.
“Here guests become family and experiences become lasting memories.”
I like the plantation’s stylish colonial architecture, and especially my refurbished beach rooms designed by Ralph Lauren. On my balcony I overlook the Spa with an infinity pool, looking over the ocean.
“Steeped in rich history, timeless elegance and true understated luxury, Round Hill welcomes you with genuine Jamaican hospitality.”
The enormous space (110-acre) and privacy, as well as the good energy and style makes me want to come back here. Other people that keep coming back are some famous names that have stayed here as Beatles singer Paul McCartney along with his family and of course Ralph Lauren who owns one of the rooms he designed himself. (The last one in the row.)
“JFK and Jackie honeymooned in Villa 10.”
We dine in the award-winning seaside dining room and after we visit the exquisite spa that lies nestled in a lush tropical hillside along a private bay of turquoise waters. We unwind and relax with an outdoor yoga class.
“Everything about Round Hill is calm and easy. The ideal getaway for overscheduled people.”
For those of you who pictured yourself lying back on perfectly location, next to the sea, the sky above blue and sunny while cooling down with delicious drinks, visit the Round Hill in Montego Bay!
