Pimento Hill is a spacious private home with a legendary history. The villa overlooks the Caribbean Sea and is located just five minutes from chic Round Hill where guests enjoy complimentary membership. It was originally built in the late 1950's for French Count and Countess Jacques and Vera di Sibour in the period when Jamaica was a glamorous party destination for the early jet set and attracted the likes of Noel Coward, Ella Fitzgerald, Ian Fleming and the Kennedy's, among many other notables. The Master Suite was the residence selected for Queen Elizabeth II when she visited Jamaica to open the Queen's Highway.
Pimento Hill was extensively renovated and refurbished to a high standard while retaining many period features. Today, owned by a family in London, Pimento Hill's essence is the tasteful marriage of Colonial grandeur of a bygone era complemented by modern amenities and comforts one would expect in a luxury villa. Priceless chandeliers and antiques define character. Marvelous meals emerge from the modern kitchen. Comfortable bedrooms feature top-of-the-line mattresses and en-suite bathrooms. Delicate orchids adorn the rooms. The grounds include water gardens, hidden walkways, an arched bridge and sprawling grassy lawns.
Pimento Hill's six acres are a virtual orchard of mango, orange, grapefruit, breadfruit, lime, tangerine, avocado and even a cotton tree! Large lawns encourage children to run around and even learn a bit of cricket from senior gardener Ralston.
Architecturally, the villa is constructed in four defined areas connected by footpaths:
Distance to Beach: 6 minutes via driver to Round Hill, 13 minutes to the Tryall Club
Distance to Town: 20 minute drive to Montego Bay
Distance to Airport: 20 minutes to Sangster International Airport (MBJ)
