The luxury resort kicked off its landmark year with the annual Sugar Cane Ball’s Studio54-themed party in February, and a farm-to-table dinner launch in March.

Guests can continue the anniversary celebrations by booking the Round Hill 60th Anniversary Special. It includes a $60 daily resort credit, a 50-minute spa treatment, complimentary Wi-Fi, daily afternoon tea and a welcome gift.

Round Hill opened in 1953 by Jamaican-born entrepreneur John Pringle. It now consists of 27 individually owned villas, and the 36-room Pineapple House, which is surrounded by 30 acres of lush tropical gardens. Shareholders have included Adele Astaire, Bill and Babe Paley, Mr. and Mrs. Oscar Hammerstein, and, most recently, designer Ralph Lauren.
