round hill hotelJamaica’s presence and prominence on the list come as no surprise to travel enthusiasts who travel not only the Caribbean shores but also tourist destinations globally.

Round Hill Hotel & Villas, one of the resort hotels making the 2016 list is a home run for both locals and foreigners.

Set on a 45-hectare former sugarcane plantation, this elegant, beachfront resort is 18 km, from both Sangster International Airport and downtown Montego Bay.

The resort has a restaurant, a cocktail bar, a beach bar and a terrace, as well as a spa, an outdoor pool, a gym, and yoga. Other amenities include water sports, tennis, and a kids’ club.

“We invite you to our 110-acre private enclave of luxury villas, boutique oceanfront rooms, award-winning seaside dining and an exquisite spa that lies nestled in a lush tropical hillside along a private bay of turquoise waters. Here, guests become family, paradise is found, and experiences become lasting memories,” states the hotel’s website.

Listed among the best in Travel + Leisure magazine, has certainly given the property’s managing director Josef Forstmayr much to boast about.

“We are truly honored to have been recognized by the readers of Travel + Leisure,” said Round Hill’s Managing Director Josef Forstmayr, according to a press report.

“Our inclusion on this list of outstanding resorts reassures us that the contribution of our dedicated staff members truly stands out within the hospitality field. We are grateful for our committed team and look forward to upholding this placement while continuing to grow from here. We would also like to congratulate our neighbor’s at Golden Eye and Jamaica Inn on the outstanding achievement.”

One visitor to the hotel shared his experience thus:

“Round Hill is a property for all seasons – for those looking for peace, tranquility, and excellence. Some properties go into “summer” mode but not Round Hill. The same standard of excellent food and understated service is on show at any time of the year. My brief visit last week during a tour of the island was again a reminder of the unique experience that is Round Hill. Long may it remain so.”

Now in its 21st year, Travel + Leisure readers voted on their favorite hotels, resorts, spas, airlines, cruise lines, tour operators, rental-car agencies, and more in the annual World’s Best Awards survey, honoring the crème de la crème in travel.

To celebrate this renowned accomplishment, Round Hill encourages travelers to experience the resort using the Weekly Villa Hideaway offer.

Guests staying in one of the property’s 27 secluded villas will be spoiled during their Jamaican getaway and can enjoy innovative gourmet cuisine from within the home with impeccable personalized service.

Additionally, this resort hotel boasts a series of awards and recognition. These include Trip Advisor Travellers’ Choice Award, Trip Advisor’ Certificate of Excellence, World Travel Winner Awards, among others.
