Celebrities' Secret Winter Vacation Spots
Courtesy of Round Hill Hotel & Villas
Round Hill Hotels and Villas, Montego Bay, Jamaica
Wintertime Guests: Emma Thompson, Gabrielle Union, Ewan McGregor, Lance
Armstrong, Michelle Williams, Nicole Miller, Mena Suvari, Patrick Dempsey, Shaggy, Russell Simmons,
Sigourney Weaver, Paul McCartney.
Why They Like It: In the movie How Stella Got Her Groove Back, Stella found her
mojo at Round Hill; many celebrities come here to do the same. Picture villas with horizon pools,
mahogany beds, vaulted ceilings, wicker furnishings, and alfresco living rooms with sweeping ocean
views. Each separately owned cottage has its master’s personality.
Celebrity Scoop: Owners include Ralph Lauren, Jamaican track star Merlene
Ottey, and (at one point) Betsey Johnson. Every Christmas when he was married to Linda, Paul
McCartney booked a master villa—maid, gardener, and cook included.
