The Property: Round Hill Hotel and Villas

Who: Everyone, including royalty. Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan visited last year for a wedding of one of Harry’s close friends, and Selena Gomez, Simon Cowell, and Khloe Kardashian were all recently spotted too. Historically, this was a beloved place of the likes of Bing Crosby, Alfred Hitchcock, and Oscar Hammerstein. Villa 10 was also where JFK and Jackie Kennedy chose to spend their honeymoon. So, like we said: everyone.

Why: Montego Bay, Jamaica has always been a bolt-hole for celebrities, but there are certain hotels that undoubtedly add to the equation. Round Hill has been one of those hotels since its opening in 1953.

Elegant, historical, and luxurious, the hotel is a 110-acre private enclave of luxury villas, boutique oceanfront rooms, and an award-winning spa that lies beneath a tropical hillside, all along the private Jamaican bay of turquoise waters. Round Hill’s 36 oceanfront guestrooms were designed under the careful direction of Ralph Lauren, and each of the 27 luxury villas comes equipped with a private pool, guesthouses, and event lawns. Guests have access to water sports, tennis, golf, farm-to-table dining, and of course, the spa.
