For me, 2014 is the start of a new life — literally and figuratively. I wanted to start the new year with my loving family, wonderful friends, sunshine, laughter and smiles so Round Hill Hotel and Villas seemed like the ideal destination! Since it opened in 1953, Round Hill—just over eight miles west of Montego Bay—has played host to the likes of Grace Kelly, Cole Porter, and Jackie Kennedy, among other celebrities. Guests say its Round Hill’s décor that makes this boutique resort timeless and elegant. Its 36 guestrooms—with furniture designed by Ralph Lauren—are embellished in whites, pinks, and blues and feature four-poster beds and free-standing rain showers. Round Hill’s 27 villa suites feature open-air living rooms and verandahs, along with semi-private pools and cottage housekeepers (who will cook you breakfast for an additional fee). Along with its luxurious digs, Round Hill offers a wide selection of activities, including tennis, water sports, and spa treatments in a restored 18th-century plantation house. We are having the time of our lives — rejuvenated and ready to take on the world! From my family to your……Happy New Year!
