The late John Rollins, who was one of the most successful entrepreneurs in America, came to Jamaica during the 1960’s. He fell in love with the island, and ended up purchasing the seven-thousand-acre Rose Hall Plantation that featured pristine land, alluring sea to majestic mountainside. The large Great House on the plantation was restored to its glory of its former days, including a restoration of its beautiful decor and collection of interior furnishings that reflect the Colonial style of the eighteenth century.
The vision of the Rollins family was always to transform the plantation into a serene paradise for the family, as well as for other people who seek a home in the Caribbean. Today, the Rollins family still continue the dream of John Rollins in their desire to create a vacation resort of the highest standards. The luxury vacation houses and elaborate resorts at Rose Hall is the result of nurturing its development over fifty years. Rose Hall today is considered a jewel of Montego Bay with its award-winning championship golf courses, shopping opportunities, five-star resorts, and attractions that provide entertainment and delight to anyone who comes to experience this area of Jamaica.
