    Staying at… Round Hill Hotel and Villas in Jamaica

    We visited Jamaica in 2015 and stayed at the luxurious Round Hill Hotel and Villas. The resort is spectacular, perfect for those of you looking for a bit of an escape and luxury.

There’s so much to see and do in Jamaica, although we did spend some time getting plenty of R&R – Round Hill is the perfect place for this! The Hotel Enter the gates to this secluded resort and make your way through the 100-acres of private villas set within the hill side to a spectacular reception. Feel the cool…

    Staying at… Rendezvous Saint Lucia

    Saint Lucia is a paradise island if ever there was one with beautiful white sand beaches, warm turquoise waters, epic scenery and the most friendly people. An island as wonderful as this needs accommodation equally as luxurious! When staying in Saint Lucia, you’ll want to think about what attractions are near to you. Although it is a small island, the mountainous nature means it can take well over an hour to get from one end to the other. That being said, driving isn’t your only option for getting around this paradise island. Helicopter transfers are available from the airport in the south to bring you up to the north if…

    Ultimate Relaxation in Montego Bay Jamaica

    Montego Bay Jamaica was the second part of our trip booked through Destinology (the first being Miami). We had booked into an amazing resort called Round Hill Hotel and Villas. It’s set on a hill side with lots of individual villas each with their own private pool. There is also a ‘main’ hotel building towards the bottom of the hill, right by the beach. Round Hill opened in 1953 and was a glamourous destination to global icons of the 50s and 60s. John F. Kennedy honeymooned at Round Hill. More recently, Ralph Lauren designed the rooms of the hotel and he also has his own private villa. Truly a luxurious destination! Our…

    All Inclusive Luxury in The Dominican Republic

    We visited the Dominican Republic in April of 2017. This was the first time we'd stayed in an all-inclusive resort. We've been a bit spoilt with some of the holidays and hotels we'd stayed in recently in Jamaica and Mauritius so were expecting the same calibre in the DR. The hotel itself was beautiful, set on an idyllic beach with white sand and beautiful crystal clear water. Perhaps not the best for swimming given it was quite choppy and there were a lot of boats out doing day trips, but amazing for an early morning and/or late afternoon run/walk.
