Round Hill Hotel and Villas
Round Hill Hotel and Villas has long been the most beautiful and elegant boutique resort in the Caribbean, known for understated glamour, discreet impeccable service and warm Jamaican hospitality. This legendary hotel has managed to maintain its timeless elegance without seeming dated or old fashioned. On the contrary: this private resort now has even more comforts and the new concepts in the restaurant and spa make it more extraordinary than ever.
Numerous business, political, entertainment, athletic and cultural celebrities have spent glamorous and carefree vacations at Round Hill Hotel & Villas since opening in 1953. Originally the private haven of style icons such as Noel Coward, Babe Paley, Cole Porter, Grace Kelly and Jackie Kennedy, this fabled boutique resort property comprised of 27 private villas, a 36-room oceanfront hotel, spa and exquisite dining feels like a charming, comfortable and family-oriented private club.
Round Hill's old world glamour is set amidst a lush tropical backdrop where everyone is made to feel right at home. The pleasant, year-round tropical climate makes it possible for guests to spend the majority of their time outdoors. Round Hill's privacy, refinement and warm Jamaican service continues to be a haven for a long list of today's icons and tastemakers.
Round Hill is privately-owned, and run as an unusual blend of a Club and a resort, directed by a Chairman and a Board of Directors elected from the shareholders. Management is headed by the Managing Director. The hotel operates year round with a full time staff of 220, about 160 of them having served Round Hill's guests for over 15 years. Before 1989, Round Hill Hotel and Villas was open only during the winter "season".
