A long-standing icon in Jamaica, Round Hill's roots are rich with history. Originally, the 100-acre peninsula was part of Lord Monson's Round Hill Estate - a sugarcane plantation that later grew coconuts and pimento (allspice). The peninsular bluff's fertile soil and ideal climate was also home to pineapple groves, which became forever prominent in the Round Hill logo and can be found sprinkled throughout the property.
Round Hill was conceived by Jamaica-born entrepreneur John Pringle, whose vision was to take the 'boutique' concept both onto another level and into a new domain. John was raised with hospitality in his veins, as his mother owned the former Sunset Lodge Hotel in Montego Bay and was a prominent social figure in Jamaica. After John completed schooling and served in the British Army, he spent a few years in New York City where he worked for Elizabeth Arden and ultimately left to open his own men's fashion boutique. After meeting his wife and starting a family, John wished to return to Jamaica with his family to put his ambition and talents to work.
The resort had many famous guests, for some of them Round Hill was an inspiration - many musicals have been written in Villa 12 by the original owner Oscar Hammerstein. It is at Round Hill where he met Maria von Trapp and "The Sound of Music" was written. For some, Round Hill was the most romantic place - John F. Kennedy and Jackie Kennedy preferred to stay in Villa 10 - this was also the villa where they honeymooned. Round carries a rich heritage and has become one of the most prominent settings for exclusive events.
