Luxury Hotel & Villa: Boasting a celebrity guest list since its opening in 1954, Round Hill has seen the likes of Grace Kelly, Alfred Hitchcock, Goldie Hawn, President John F. Kennedy and First Lady, Jackie Kennedy, just to name a few. Located on the island of Jamaica in Montego Bay, its luxury and glamour has attracted movie stars and royalty for all the same reasons: the enduring sense of style, pristine beaches, a world class spa, and supreme privacy.
Housed on a former pineapple plantation, oceanfront rooms in the Pineapple Houseare finely decorated in Ralph Lauren style to evoke the feeling of tropical beach living. Private villas are nestled among abundant flora and fauna, and are privately owned but leased out to the resort for vacationer's pleasure. Most villas boast their own private pool, are decorated by the owners in plantation style sophistication, and face west to take advantage of the fabulously long sunsets.
The heart of the resort is located in a restored eighteenth century plantation house boasting an immaculate lawn where seaside massages and yoga classes take place. A seaside trail guides you to the oceanfront spa situated on ten acres. Created to entice your senses, this tranquil oasis immerses you in the aromas of the island, and dedicates quiet time for the soul. Those seeking the ultimate in pampering and the desire to become one with nature can enjoy staying in this tropical wonderland while experiencing Luxury Yoga Retreats established by Inward Bound. Round Hill is also the perfect setting for a customized wedding, and kids tennis clinics are held throughout the summer months.
