Overview

Five-star luxury was introduced to Montego Bay when the Round Hill Hotel & Villas opened in 1953 on a private peninsula that was once a pineapple plantation. Over the decades, the resort has hosted professional athletes, Hollywood royalty and presidents -- including JFK and Jackie on their honeymoon. It was in Villa 12 that Oscar Hammerstein met Maria von Trapp and was inspired to write "The Sound of Music." Sir Paul McCartney vacations with his family in Villa 17.

The two-story Pineapple House has 36 white-on-white guest rooms with views of the infinity pool and beach. Ralph Lauren, who owns property on the grounds, personally outfitted the spaces with dark wood, bamboo and rattan for an upscale Caribbean vibe. To rub shoulders with celebrities, upgrade to one of the 27 private villas scattered among coconut trees and allspice groves with personal maids and cooks serving made-to-order breakfast. Most villas have private pools and can sleep up to eight people; nannies are available for traveling families.

All guests are treated to complimentary afternoon tea, and the James Beard Award-winning chef creates daily menus from the hotel’s organic vegetable garden and fruit orchard. Guests can enjoy the tropical sunshine from palm-shaded chaise lounges overlooking the infinity pool and ocean beyond. For further relaxation, book a massage or facial treatment in the spa built within the remains of the plantation’s original stone manor house. Visitors also have access to the hotel’s gym with yoga classes, tennis courts and water sports.
