A Resort Fit for Royalty

resort fit for royalty piece

And sometimes, like in the case of a certain Duke and Duchess now residing in California, it’s both American and British royals at the same time. In Jamaica, there is a resort that, on any given day, has more regulars than first-time guests. Maybe it’s the beach. Maybe it’s the British colonial-inspired villas. We definitely know it’s the service, which is so good American royalty named their children after staff members who have become like family. Welcome to Round Hill—a resort fit for royalty.

There isn’t much we haven’t said about Round Hill in Jamaica, but there’s a reason for that. The island resort is a favorite that celebrities and their friends and family keep coming back to time and again, to escape the limelight for a little while. At Round Hill, you’ll find British royalty (hello, Queen and Duke of Edinburgh), American royalty (Adele Astaire had a villa for years) and, in the case of Harry and Megan, British and American royalty combined. When John Pringle founded Round Hill to create an elevated boutique resort experience, he started a vacation legacy for families like the British royals and the Kennedys, generations of whom have come here to relax and spend time together.

A trip to Round Hill is more than just a tropical vacation; it’s a chance to connect with a community of friends in a place that feels like your own. Villas are decked out with private pools, clifftop views, bars, and dining rooms big enough for drinks with you and your friends — which is good because block parties are popular. And everyone at Round Hill knows everyone, and everyone is always around to hang out. That includes members of the service staff, two of whom became so close to the Lauren family that daughter Dylan named her twins Kingsley and Cooper after them.

There are a lot of fancy islands to travel to, but none that generations of royalty from the world over call their home away from home. Of course, you have the miles of white sand beaches, James Beard Award-winning restaurants, trips around Montego Bay in a private glass-bottom boat, and all the five-star amenities, but what you’re really here for is the quality time you’ll spend with everyone there. When in doubt, and especially in the middle of a pandemic, Round Hill is the answer. After all, it’s a resort fit for royalty, which we all, at least a little bit, dream of.
