With a reputation for secluded style stretching back over half a century, the Round Hill Hotel in Jamaica is where famous faces step out of the limelight…and into the sunlight.
It is as if this Jamaica hotel has gathered up all the glamour-icons from its previous eras – the grand piano, the black and white photographs, the elegant cocktail parties – and reintroduced them to today’s visitors.
Especially the idea of stylish escape. The Round Hill Hotel in Jamaica is the perfect hideaway; even the beach is surrounded by reefs that ensure privacy and tranquil, azure waters.
Just 36 ocean-facing rooms are gathered into this Jamaican hotel’s Pineapple House. Each features Ralph Lauren-styled interiors with cool whites and splashes of hot, tropical colour. There are four poster beds, Egyptian cotton bed linen, rain showers and bamboo furniture.
Even more secluded are individual villas, stretching up the hillside, with from two to five suites, personal housekeeper/cooks and generously-sized, private swimming pools. For children there is a dedicated, supervised club.
Beach barbecues, water sports, a double, infinity-edge pool, a spa set in a restored 18th century plantation house, a gym, no less than five tennis courts, Tryall’s golf course and trips to the shops of Montego Bay all help make sure that seclusion is always appealing.
Which brings us to dinner. This Jamaica hotel serves it either overlooking the sea, or in the upper Georgian terrace and accompanied by live entertainment. And more than a touch of style.
