Round Hill is one of the Caribbean’s most legendary and low-key full-service escapes, where guests don’t need to lift a finger unless they want to. It’s all about style and relaxation here, and visitors are quietly catered to. There’s a tennis pro on-site to help with your swing, and a kids program that can be a lifesaver for parents who need an afternoon off. Designed by Ralph Lauren, a member of Round Hill’s board, the rooms are elegant and expansive. In addition to the gorgeous Caribbean colors, the rooms have four-poster beds, high ceilings, and sunken baths that allow for deep relaxation after a long day in the sun. Grand Pineapple Suites also include separate living rooms and semiprivate pools. The beach is small but private, with waiter service and a beach bar with a mellow vibe conducive to relaxing with a book and a Red Stripe. When hunger strikes, the resort’s Grill at Round Hill dishes up fresh, tasty fare, such as local seafood and copper-singed jerk chicken. In the morning guests are greeted by the smell of Blue Mountain coffee roasting and the ocean sparkling in the Mo’ Bay sun. A 2,300-square-foot fitness center features a weight and cardio room, an open-air yoga pavilion and juice bar. The spa offers a full menu of massages, facials and wraps — we’d opt for the pineapple body buff in a treatment room right on the ocean.
In the Area
While Round Hill has its own course with ocean views, consider playing a round at nearby Cinnamon Hill Golf Course; the back nine overlooks Johnny and June Cash’s former home. Looking to head out for dinner? Scuba fans should opt for an afternoon with Captain’s Watersports for dives in Jamaica’s pristine waters or explore the island’s forests and beaches on horseback with Chukka Horseback Ride ’n’ Swim. You can’t leave Jamaica without trying the spicy, sweet and savory jerked meats. Hit the Pork Pitt, near Walter Fletcher Beach, for Montego Bay’s best.
How to Get There
This was our first time visiting Round Hill and to say we were blown away by the place is an understatement. Not only were we in the most magical "honeymoon suite" in Villa 20, but everything about the hotel was wonderful. The people were so warm and kind, always making sure that we were happy and satisfied. We were there for 5 nights and were able to actually fully relax and recharge. Round Hill is a truly special place that we hope to visit again and again!
We stayed here for 3 nights. Everything about this place has been so perfectly well thought through and executed. Our villa suite was amazing, the staff are all superbe, the views stunning and the overall level of service beyond compare; great food and margaritas too!
My daughter and I recently attended an Essentrics Retreat at the Roundhill. I have only stayed at Sandals in Montego Bay before and this is quite different in that it is quieter and more low key. It is very beautiful and safe feeling. The staff is very wonderful and helpful. All in all, Loved it!
