Overview

Pool Beach Nearby Ideal for Kids All Bedrooms En-Suite Wheelchair Access

Designed by Prince Kasimir Korybut in 1993, Almond Hill is a lovely private home located on a former coconut plantation just 20 minutes from Montego Bay and one minute from posh Round Hill where guests enjoy complimentary resort membership. The villa is tastefully decorated with comfortable furniture inside and out. Tall library shelves in the high-ceilinged living room house an abundance of books, movies and cable television.

Spacious bathrooms with mirrored walls adjoin each bedroom. The master bathroom features an oversize bathtub and open shower area with floor-to-ceiling louvered doors that open to a walled garden.

Down a gentle slope a few steps from the house is the large private pool. Its spacious gazebo is a favorite spot for shaded poolside lunches.

Perhaps best of all is Almond Hill's design around the large furnished verandah - cooled by tradewinds and located for its superb view nine miles across the sea to the harbor and town of Montego Bay. A haven for reading and napping, the verandah is most memorable for wonderful candlelight dinners served here with the romance of distant lights reflecting on the bay.

Almond Hill is just a 1 minute drive from prestigious Round Hill Hotel with beach, water sports, shops, fitness center, Kids Club, indoor and beachside bars and excellent Continental restaurant. Each week, 3 themed beach party buffets welcome Almond Hill guests for various fees.
