Jamaican Hotel Included among Forbes Travel Guide 2018 Star Award Winners

The Forbes Magazine Travel Guide has included Jamaica’s Round Hill Hotel and Villas in Montego Bay among its Star Award Winners. Jamaica is one of the new countries included in the Travel Guide for 2018. The accommodation has a storied reputation, starting from its beginnings in the 1950s when the island was becoming increasingly famous as a vacation destination. The resort has hosted numerous celebrities from all walks of life, including the Kennedys, who selected the hotel for their honeymoon. Round Hill is where the musical “The Sound of Music” was written, and it also provided the backdrop for the popular 1996 film “How Stella Got Her Groove Back.” Today, the property continues to host Hollywood stars and professional athletes from around the world who come to enjoy its authentic island charm. The hotel features open-air suites, spectacular views, and all the pampering any guest requires.
