Round Hill Hotel & Villas
Based ontraveler reviews
Greetings from the Hotel General Manager
Welcome to beautiful Round Hill and the tropical paradise of Jamaica. Round Hill was founded in 1953 by John Pringle and his fabulous wife Liz. Come and see the history and tradition that made Round Hill the premier destination in the Caribbean. Enjoy Round Hill’s timeless style: comfort and luxury without pretension, served by dedicated staff that exudes warm Jamaican hospitality.
- Along a winding, seaside path between the main resort and the spa retreat lies a limestone cliff pocked by shallow caves, which guests decorate with white stones plucked from the shore.
What to Expect:
- Begun in 1953 as a collection of villas on a 110-acre pineapple/allspice/coconut plantation, the resort has long served socialites and celebrities. Villa owners have included writer/producer Noel Coward, Viscount and Viscountess Rothermere, and, currently, designer Ralph Lauren. Accustomed to opulence, owners come here for the restful rusticity, which also attracts celebrity and non-celebrity couples and families.
- A large pool overlooks a little bay lapping a private beach. A smaller pool lies within a five-hectare (10-acre), adults-only spa-and-fitness retreat, which is accessible by a path along the bay. The resort provides complimentary snorkeling gear, kayaks, pedal boats, windsurfers, and Hobie Cat sailboats as well as glass-bottom-boat tours. Water skiing, scuba diving, fishing and a 15.5-meter (51-ft) crewed catamaran are available for surcharges.
