Interview with Round Hill Hotel and Villas Managing Director Josef Forstmayr

Q) What makes Round Hill Hotel and Villas a unique experience for guests?
A) The lush and tropical gardens, private villas in the privacy of the 110 acres peninsula and the warm Jamaican hospitality create a unique experience for all our visitors. Round Hill is the quintessential Jamaican resort...we define luxury as having the ability to be in an outdoor setting with indoor furnishings...from the luxurious sofas to the covered verandahs.

Q) Can you explain what makes Jamaica appealing to travelers as a vacation destination?
A) Jamaica offers the most sensuous environment, from the tropical mountains, the white sandy beaches and the most beautiful people. The music, the food and the general vibe create the sexiest destination in the Western hemisphere.

Q) Are there any "must-try" dishes or drinks at the property that guests should order?
A) Stewart's famous "Round Hill Special" rum punch will put you in the "proper mood". Meanwhile our organic gardens provide some of the most delicious fresh garden greens and herbs. Our executive chef Martin Maginley has developed a "farm to table" dining experience which is now all the rage in Jamaica.

Q) What are the three things about your property that guests may not know?
A) 1 - The name Round Hill goes back to the time when the British took over from the Spanish in 1655. It was always part of a landmark sugar cane, coconut and pineapple plantation.
2 - The wife of our founder John Pringle was one of the most famous fashion models of her time; Liz Benn appeared on the cover of Time magazine in 1953.
3 - On the top of "Round Hill" is the original wall of Round Hill Fort, which used to be part of the protective fortifications for the "Baya de Manteca" (sp. Bay of Pig's Lard). It later became Montego Bay.

Q) Can you take me through what a guests stay would be like and what an average day might entail in terms of activities, etc.?
A) Glorious breakfast prepared by your own housekeeper on the verandah of your cottage...and then decisions after decisions..."should we go snorkeling or have afternoon tea?"

Q) Have you had any notable guests or celebrities visit that you can share?
A) Yes...many of our guests have achieved great success in their various fields...and come to Jamaica and Round Hill to find total privacy and to get "grounded".

Q) What advice do you have for guests who are staying at your hotel?
A) Try to be a bit adventurous and explore the beautiful interior countryside of Jamaica, from Mayfield Falls to the Safari on the Black River on our unspoiled South Coast.

Q) What is the best time to travel to Jamaica?
A) Jamaica has the BEST weather of any part of the world...never too hot, never too cold, never too wet and never too dry...Naturally, when North America and Europe are in the grips of winter, from November until May, then Jamaica's climate is a fantastic and unique experience...hence, our high season runs from mid-December to mid-April.
