About Round Hill: Fine Jamaican Resort in Montego Bay
Round Hill Hotel and Villas has long been known as the pinnacle of beauty and elegance among boutique Jamaican resorts. Known for timeless elegance, understated luxury and warm Jamaican heart, our exclusive, award-winning resort in Montego Bay, Jamaica is renowned as one of the finest resorts in the Caribbean. 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 creature comforts, world-class amenities, and new concepts incorporated into our luxury villas and guestrooms, restaurants, and spa that make it more extraordinary than ever.
The illustrious history of this Montego Bay resort reads like a who's who of 20th century society. Numerous business, political, entertainment, athletic, and cultural celebrities have spent glamorous and carefree vacations at this elite Caribbean resort since its 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 Caribbean resort property—comprising 27 private villas, a 36-room oceanfront hotel, spa, and some of the finest restaurants in Montego Bay—feels like a charming, comfortable, and family-oriented private club.
Round Hill's old-world elegance is set amidst a lush tropical backdrop where everyone is made to feel right at home. The pleasant climate makes it possible for guests to spend the majority of their time outdoors while still enjoying some of the finest service found among Jamaican resorts. 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 is run as an unusual blend of club and resort, directed by a Chairman and a Board of Directors elected from the shareholders. Round Hill management is headed by the Managing Director and his professional executive staff. 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 Caribbean winter season.
