Round Hill Resort and Villas
This ultimate legendary resort just gets better. Round Hill offers absolute luxury. This world-famous estate was conceived by well-known Jamaican entrepreneur, John Pringle. The 100-acre peninsula was part of Lord Monson's Round Hill Estate which was first a sugar plantation and later changed over to coconuts and pimento (all spice) which are still produced today.
Twenty-nine acres were subdivided and prominent American and European socialites were invited to build "cottages" and invest in the hotel. Shareholders have included Noel Coward, Adele Astaire, Bill Paley, Lord and Lady Ednam, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Hammerstein, Clive Brook, Jack and Natasha Wilson, the Marchioness of Dufferin and Ava, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Tiarks and Viscount and Viscountess Rothermere. Many celebrities and socialites vacation at Round Hill including Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russell, Michael Douglas, Joan Collins
The hotel operates on the same basis today with 27 villas being owned by individual "shareholders". Each villa is owned by someone rich or famous. When the owners are not in residence the cottages are available for rent either as individual suites or complete two, three or four-bedroom cottages with or without pool. Villas have been formerly owned by legends like Paul Newman and Bing Crosby. A more affordable alternative is a room at Round Hill's Pineapple House Hotel.
