From Travel weekly: "Designer Ralph Lauren lent his hand to the redesign of Round Hill Hotel & Villas' 36-room Pineapple House Hotel in Montego Bay, Jamaica. The resort also offers 27 private villas, most with private pools. The first-floor rooms at Pineapple House include the addition of balconies or verandahs that open out to sea views. Lauren used an all-white color scheme in the rooms, accented by a four-poster king-size bed draped in a white net with 300-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. The new bathrooms, also a Lauren design, include freestanding white tubs with separate showers. Nightly rates in the new rooms are $350 double, through Dec. 14 and $550 double, from Dec. 15 through April14, including tax and service charges. The resort, a member of Elegant Resorts International, added a new pool, created with 18th century stones from the ruins of the Golden Grove Sugar Works in Jamaica. The site is the same as the previous pool, built on a promontory that projects out over Round Hill Bay. Three pools on different levels feature vanishing edges over the sea with water cascading into a spa pool below. Round Hill also opened a new pool bar, styled after its beach bar.
