Round Hill Hotel | Montego Bay, Jamaica

Jamaica in the round

Jamaica is a wonderful place to visit. The beaches are ideal year round because of the average 81° F temperatures here. Even in the winter, you can see people in their bathing suits, lapping up the sun and digging their feet in the sand. Not only that, the food is unique, and the dancehall culture keeps you dancing.

There are water sports and activities galore, even bobsledding. While you are exploring Jamaica’s Blue Mountains, or having some of the coffee that grows there, make the Round Hill Hotel the place you bunk between activities. This hotel is located among Jamaica’s secluded beaches, and is a 18th Century home that has been converted to light, airy, and beautiful accommodations.

The 27 rooms and 36 Ralph Lauren Oceanfront Rooms here are very private and sit right along the beach. They all overlook Round Hill Bay, ocean reef, and gorgeous sunset scenes. The designer rooms have plantation shutters, some have balconies, but all have white linen 4-poster beds, sitting areas, large bathrooms with walk in showers, soaking tubs, and dual vanities.

There are four classes of villas at Round Hill Hotel, and they range from 2-6 bedroom configurations with a selection of private pools, guest houses, and awesome outdoor living. Perhaps the most satisfying room here is the Ocean View King Room. It is located on the second floor of the resort, and allows awesome views of the Bay. There are cathedral ceilings that are split and offer contemporary island decoration.

Amenities include Blue Mountain coffee, and coffeemaker, rain showers, and all the amenities you expect at fine hotels include Elemis Bath products, and also a pillow menu. Speaking of menus, the restaurants and bars here are awesome. Round Hill’s kitchen serves Jamaican inspired dishes created by award winning chef, Martin Maginley. The restaurant has also won a wine award for perfect meal and wine pairings.

There is also The Grill Restaurant that serves breakfast, and wood grilled foods with a panoramic view of Round Hill Bay and the sea. Seaside Terrace Restaurant offers a themed buffet, beach BBQ, and more under the stars. Seaside Terrace also offers lunches, afternoon teas, and cocktails. If you are on par for drinks alone, try the Beach or Pool Bar or head over to the romantic Cocktail Bar for premium drinks and golden sunsets. Not only can you fully relax, and get a full tummy, there is so much to do at Round Hill Hotel and in the surrounding area.

There is a spa, and fitness area here, you can take a boat to explore the area, and enjoy water sports as well. There is also family entertainment, as well as live music, beach parties, manager’s cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception, calypso sing alongs, and Jamaica night with a focus on foods, music, and cuisine. Stay at Round Hill Hotel when you visit, and relax while you take in all that is Jamaica, visit the hotel at the link for rates, activities, and even more amenities.
