Round Hill adds to its col­lec­tion of ac­co­lades

Jamaica Gleaner - - HOSPITALITY JAMAICA -

THE LEG­ENDARY Round Hill ho­tel has added the Hos­pi­tal­ity Ja­maica 2016 Best Small/Bou­tique Award to its ex­ten­sive col­lec­tion of ac­co­lades.

The ho­tel, which is lo­cated in Hanover, was also winner of Hos­pi­tal­ity Ja­maica’s ‘Best in Cui­sine’ award in 2014.

The 110-acre prop­erty is highly ac­claimed as one of the most beau­ti­ful and el­e­gant re­sorts in the West Indies. It con­sists of a se­ries of 27 charm­ing pri­vate lux­ury vil­las and 36 spa­cious Ralph Lau­ren-de­signed ocean­front rooms, which af­ford guests a spec­tac­u­lar view of the ocean.

Vil­las range from two to six bed­rooms and in­clude niceties such as pri­vate pools and event lawns and are in prox­im­ity to ten­nis courts, a jog­ging trail, the re­sort’s fit­ness cen­tre, the Pineap­ple Kids Club with (trained nan­nies), and the Round Hill pri­vate beach.

Round Hill houses, among other things, a spa, and two restau­rants – the Sea­side Ter­race and The Grill, which of­fers a wide menu com­pris­ing mainly lo­cal or­ganic foods. For play­ers of golf, the re­sort pro­vides com­pli­men­tary shut­tle ser­vice to the Tryall Golf Club’s 18-hole cham­pi­onship golf course.

The im­pec­ca­ble ser­vice, out­stand­ing food, and the will­ing­ness of staff mem­bers to go the ex­tra mile to meet re­quests are among the things that have given the re­sort an in­ter­na­tional stamp of ap­proval over the years, that is, in ad­di­tion to the fact that phys­i­cally, as it has of­ten been de­scribed, Round Hill is a nat­u­rally beau­ti­ful, serene, tran­quil, mes­meris­ing, quaint, and fab­u­lous place.

Round Hill is not seen as only just a ho­tel. The re­sort is an in­te­gral part of the Hanover land­scape as it has al­ways been a good cor­po­rate cit­i­zen, demon­strated through its con­sis­tent sup­port of so­cial and hu­man­i­tar­ian ac­tiv­i­ties across the parish and sec­tions of western Ja­maica. Its char­i­ta­ble arm, Hanover Char­i­ties, is the largest or­gan­i­sa­tion of its kind in western Ja­maica and was es­tab­lished to im­prove the qual­ity of life of the peo­ple of the parish by fund­ing com­mu­nity health, ed­u­ca­tion, and wel­fare projects.
