Round Hill Hotel & Villas

Round Hill Hotel & Villas

*****

Round Hill Hotel & Villas in Jamaica was built as a colony of cottages for the rich, famous and glamorous of the 1950s. Today, not much has changed: the family-friendly resort’s shore-side pool villas, perfect spa and Ralph Lauren-designed suites make it the Caribbean hotspot of choice for wannabe JFKs and Jackie Os.

Highlights:

  • Exquisite spa in an 18th-century plantation

  • Ralph Lauren-decorated rooms

  • 110 acres of grounds

Smith extra

A bottle of wine in your room; members staying four nights or longer also get $100 to spend in the spa

In the know

Also need to know:

Golfers can tee up at Tryall Golf Club, the Caribbean’s best course; Round Hill can make reservations and provides a free shuttle there and back. Smoking is only permitted outdoors at the beach, the pool and in the gardens. The grounds are impeccably maintained. Get a closer look during tours offered each Friday afternoon by the head gardener. The tour includes a peek at the garden of rare tropical orchids. The Spa at Round Hill is set in a restored 18th-century house over 10 acres by the Caribbean Sea, and offers treatments using local lemongrass, botanicals from the grounds and stones plucked from the ocean. Overcome the previous night’s rum cocktails with the hangover massage, which diffuses toxins using Jamaican sweet basil.

Packing tips:

No need to lug snorkelling gear: the hotel has plenty of fins and snorkels for guests.

Dress code:

Sandals and kaftans are ideal for beachy meals, but trousers and long dresses are best for dinner at the Grill.

If Dirty Dancing were set in Jamaica instead of the Catskills, it would have been filmed at Round Hill. The 50s-era villas were designed by William Ballard, a design scion who went on to chair New York City’s Planni
