Round Hill Hotel & Villas

Round Hill Hotel & Villas

Montego Bay has a romantic ring to the name, conjuring up a Jamaican paradise and heavenly weddings or honeymoon destinations. Round Hill Hotel is the embodiment of those images.

The resort displays its colonial architecture, beachfront situation, bay views, and lavish accommodation half-hidden among lush tropical foliage. Ever popular with global celebrities, the hotel has also maintained its attraction for over half a century. 


The hotel benefits from its seclusion on a private beach, ensuring a restful stay for any guest or incognito celebrity. The nearest town is Hopewell, which is a short drive away. Moreover, the main airport is Sangster International, about a half-hour ride to/from the property. 

The complex also stretches out in gracious magnificence over 110 acres of palm groves and powdery white sands along Caribbean blue shorelines west of Montego Bay. 

With peaceful lawns, splendid private pools, island food, first-class service, and warm Jamaican hospitality, few guests will want to leave the hotel complex. Besides, the top-class golfing at Tryall Golf Course or river-rafting on the Great River may tempt you.

Style and Hospitality

Round Hill, transformed into a hotel in the 1950s, has been famous for a long time. It entertains world leaders, writers, artists, and movie stars. Furthermore, the elegance of a former age is evident in the architecture, furniture, and furnishings.

Formerly a pineapple plantation (now the motif of the complex), the hotel retains a colonial feel and unique old-school hospitality. A nod to its British history is in the signature British Racing Green color that punctuates the lawns' natural greens and lush foliage. 

The lobby also features the original black and white check flooring, and staff still light the candles in a chandelier dating from the 18th century. 

Round Hill is a family friendly resort and also features a great kids club. 

The Rooms

Round Hill has 36 oceanfront guest rooms, individually designed by Ralph Lauren, and 27 luxury villas. All have a colonial flavor in the decor but are supremely comfortable and have plenty of modern amenities. 

The guest rooms are all in the Pineapple House, with stunning views of the bay and vibrant sunsets from wide windows or private balconies. Moreover, each has white Louvre windows and bamboo 4-poster beds enclosed in filmy white material. There are also immaculate white linen and overhead fans reference plantation times.

What's more, bright color accents and pineapple motifs give modern Jamaican touches to the décor. Bathrooms are also roomy with deep tubs, rain showers, and luxury toiletries. Other courtesies include a pillow menu and a coffee-maker with Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee.

The Villas

Set back from the beach, these award-winning ultra-luxurious villas are studded around the hill to give spectacular ocean views and glorious sunsets. The villas are privately owned and feature individual styling but are in keeping with the hotel's overall themes. 

Each features colonial-style expansive living spaces, private gardens, and pools. Additionally, fabulous bathrooms with free-standing tubs, stone floors, and Elemis toiletries add to the standard luxuries. 

Luscious breakfasts are prepared and served on private terraces for villa residents every morning. Sizes range from 2-6 bedrooms, and some have rentable private villa suites within the property. 

Seasonal Dining - The Restaurant

Simply named but with anything but simple food, this seasonal eatery serves the superlative cuisine of master chef Maginly. With his maxim of ‘Light Clean Caribbean Cuisine,’ chef Maginly elevates traditional Jamaican and 1950s menus to memorable dishes using the finest locally sourced produce. 

Maginly’s influence flows throughout the inspired culinary offerings in the hotel’s other year-round dining options.

Seaside Terrace Restaurant

This is the social heart of Round Hill. Here guests can enjoy the finest Jamaican food, afternoon tea, and weekly theme nights under a starry sky beside the warm waters of the Caribbean. Besides, guests get to enjoy informal beach barbeques and Caribbean curries. Besides, there are special Jamaican nights with live Irie entertainment and energetic evenings with romantic candle-lit nights.

The Grill

An indoor wood-fired grill and creative culinary artists produce smokey-flavored menus while diners enjoy a panoramic roof-top view of the sea and lush tropical setting. 

Elegant, clean white décor echoes the clean eating philosophy of the hotel. An open kitchen also lets guests in on the secrets of fine cooking.

Breakfast and Tea

The day starts with fresh local fruit and delicious healthy smoothies, omelets/egg dishes, cereals, and traditional island breakfast foods. 

Villa guests can enjoy this meal on private terraces. Tea (free) in the lounge is another social hub for afternoon chats and very English-style dainty cucumber sandwiches and cakes.

Drinks and cocktails

Terrace, Beach, or Pool Bars. The bars offer light meals as well as soft drinks, spirits, and cocktails. Rum Punch is also a must.

Elemis Spa

Housed in a restored colonial building, this sublime, de-stressing award-winning spa features face and body treatments and therapies using Elemis natural products. Full mind/body/spirit wellness programs are also available. 

Adults-only - (trained staff will keep the younger guests occupied happily). Masseurs use traditional Jamaican flower oils, creams, and scrubs like frangipani, sweet vanilla, and brown sugar or coffee bean delight to rejuvenate the body. 

A fitness center and yoga pavilion are also on-site here. Heading for the magnificent Infinity Pool overlooking the ocean is another option where the kids can paddle at the shallow end.

Water Sports

Round Hill is a prominent place to enjoy a wide variety of water sports. Snorkeling among coral reefs and the myriad colorful tropical fish is one activity enjoyed by all ages in the perfect clear-water conditions. 

Water-skiing, kayaking, wakeboarding, fishing, or exhilarating speed boating can also be arranged through the concierge services. 

Land Activities

Guests can tour the beautiful gardens with a guide on Fridays or stroll through the pathways at any time. For the energetic, new tennis courts have been added, and shopping tours can be arranged. Moreover, a luxury Jamaican designer boutique is on-site for those who want to go no further.

Events and Weddings

You can book several beautifully appointed rooms and hotel venues for events and weddings. They ensure top-notch catering and hospitality services to ensure all goes smoothly.


Among all hotels in Jamaica, Round Hill is not only an idyllic place for weddings and honeymoons but families and solos too. The Pineapple/7-up clubs provide fun for children, and all guests are warmly welcomed at this beautiful hotel and villa resort. Come and have a little fun in the sun!
