Round Hill Hotel & Villas,
John Pringle Drive, P.O. Box 64, Montego Bay
Spa & Leisure
Paradise is a wonderful place to be inspired to get or stay fit, so in addition to the bay to wander along and snorkelling reef to dive into, the hotel has a state of the art fitness centre, an open air yoga pavilion and daily complimentary glass bottom boat trips, all enjoying calming Caribbean views of Jamaica’s northern coast. There are fitness programs, personal trainers and all manner of equipment to use. Round Hill Bay and a snorkelling reef are moments from the hotel. After the workout, it’s time to relax, starting with a dip in the outdoor pool before using the spa facilities.
Everything here is geared to being outside, so the spa makes the most of the gardens with an outdoor Vichy shower under a canopy of tropical foliage, seaside massages as you listen to the Caribbean waters lapping the shore, seven treatment rooms including a couples’ room, a beauty salon, a juice bar, a spa butler to bring you a healthy lunch by the pool, a hydrotherapy lodge and authentic Jamaican treatments that utilize local ingredients.
Hotel & Accommodation
With a combination of rich history, Jamaican hospitality, Ralph Lauren interiors and the warm climate, Round Hill Hotel & Villas is a restored 18th century plantation house, now a luxury hotel and collection of villas, nestled into 110 acres of lush tropical hillside along a private bay of turquoise waters. One of the most elegant resorts in the Caribbean, it’s ideal for romantic escapes and ultimate family holidays, whether you opt for one of 36 oceanfront guestrooms or 27 private villas all with plantation-shuttered windows or balconies and white linen-adorned four-poster beds. Bottled spring water will be provided at turn down alongside Elemis or Round Hill bath amenities and natural Jamaican soaps.
The restaurant meanwhile is all about award-winning Montego Bay dining, courtesy of Executive Chef Martin Maginley. Hearty, healthy breakfasts are served, including Jamaican fruit, made to order omelettes and custom-blended smoothies. During the day head to the Seaside Terrace or the Beach or Pool Bar for an informal yet delectable lunch, afternoon tea is served in the lounge, and evenings are an opportunity to watch the sun go down in style with a cocktail in hand.
