Belle Mont Farm
What We Love
- A luxury sea-view guesthouse or villa on a 400-acre tropical farm, with unlimited golf
- Picking yourself a piece of fruit, to eat in the shade of a calabash tree
- Snorkeling in the waters where the Caribbean and Atlantic meet
- Finding out where the secret fishing hole is located – but don’t tell; it’s a secret
What To Know
- Sunday brunch attracts guests, locals and visitors across the island with farm-to-table fruits and veggies, a roti station, ceviche, a Bloody Mary bar and champagne
- The concept of an entirely outdoor bathroom (toilet and all) seems romantic – but in practice, it means contending with spiders and other critters if you have to go in the middle of the night
- Sportier guests will enjoy a round of golf or a tennis match at one of two on-site courts
- Free WiFi
- Golf Course
- Parking On Site
Life is beautiful at Belle Mont Farm, designed by Conde Nast Traveler-, Forbes- and Travel + Leisure favorite Bill Bensley. This village of guesthouses, itself endorsed by all three publications (among many, many others), is set on an edible organic landscape of farmland and lush forest. It’s here that the food and drink ingredients are sourced, when they’re not harvested at neighboring farms, to strengthen the St. Kitt’s community. In fact, redefining Caribbean sustainability and social justice is the very reason this resort was created.
But you don’t need the founding team to tell you that Belle Mont Farm is a paradise unlike any other; you’ll discover this for yourself, as you catch fish in the daylight for that night’s ceviche, visit the eco-friendly golf course, wander the cane fields, or stop at trees reading “Pick Me” to pluck ripe fruit from their boughs. Later, walk to the spa through an ancient mango grove, or retreat to your room to bathe in your outdoor tub or watch a movie on your pull-down screen. Finally, at day’s end, fall asleep to views of both the Caribbean and Atlantic out your door and wraparound veranda – if you can convince yourself that this isn’t a dream already.
Guesthouses and villas
Each Belle Mont Farm abode is a tropical oasis, designed to echo that of the larger island. Fresh fruit crates and juices are delivered daily to its front door, and there are a projector and an iPad, stocked with films, that you can watch on the pull-down screen (the property will supply the popcorn). For a different kind of view, bathe in your pool or step onto your private wraparound veranda, which features a freestanding tub for candlelit baths, and gaze at the forest and the Caribbean and Atlantic meeting downhill.In addition to offering more rooms, villas incorporate shingle rooftops, balustrades and local stonework. Windows are shuttered, and each bedroom features its own walk-in wardrobe. Your pool boasts an infinity edge, and you’ll love cooking up a storm in the gourmet kitchen.
Amenities- Crisp linens- Organic bath amenities- High ceilings- Half a dozen sommelier-selected bottles of wine- Outdoor rainwater shower- Complimentary Wi-Fi- Organic coffee/tea
The organic farm is the cornerstone of the entire resort experience and the source of many of the dining rooms’ ingredients. You’ll receive fresh fruit to your front door and may chat with the chef at The Farm while he makes your braised-chicken roulade and roasted carrots, dine in the Great House’s restaurant on the catch of the day, or feast on bouillabaisse or ceviche that was made with fish you caught yourself, just that afternoon.Mill Bar pays tribute to St. Kitts’ cane-milling origins, but it’s not sugar and rum that are the focus here – rather, you’ll sip on elixirs and extracts of, again, the on-site herbs and fruits. In certain seasons, sea-to-fork fare will also be served at the black-sand Dieppe Bay beach, 10 minutes away.
Mango Walk is Belle Mont’s gorgeous spa, in an ancient mango grove at the peak of Kittitian Hill. You’ll come here to soak in natural pools and receive therapies that were inspired by indigenous traditions, and whose products and concepts the staff will happily share afterward.
From fruit-heavy forest to sweeping farmland to coral reef to golden beach – and one with black sand, too – Belle Mont Farm has every setting you could possibly want in a remote island paradise, and you’ll spend your days exploring them. Pluck ripe fruit from trees bearing “Pick Me” signs, watch a movie from your iPad-connected projector on your pull-down screen, or retreat to the spa, for a dip in a natural pool. Chart the Caribbean and Atlantic waters on a trip to a secret fishing hole or a snorkeling excursion among the reefs, through schools of colorful fish.Depending on when you come, you may also be able to enjoy the chemical-free “world’s most edible golf course” or witness a vibrant art or music festival unfolding. Finally, don’t forget to pop over to nearby Brimstone Hill, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
How to Get There
Belle Mont Farm is by far the best place I have stayed at from all the countries I have visited to date. From arrival to departure the staff are so attentive and friendly they will assist you anyway they can. The facilities on site are 5* luxury and there is everything you could wish for. We loved the small touches such as a tasty rum punch, prosecco and a cheese board on arrival and being brought warm cookies in the evenings. It made us feel very special. The setting is perfection in the rainforest over looking St Maarten, St Barts, Saba and St Eustatius. I can't repeat enough how much the staff make this beautiful place feel like home.
Some of the huts look close to one another but you always have full privacy and can enjoy the sound of nature without being interrupted. There are also walking trails and yoga classes to take part in amongst many other activities. If I'm honest, you could spend your whole time in St Kitts here! That is what I will be doing next time I come back.
I would also say this,after trying the best restaurants according to trip advisor, I think The Kitchen is the best restaurant on St Kitts. I would also recommend trying Arthur's in Dieppe Bay. It is part of Belle Mont Farm and the fresh fish dishes are exquisite.
Thank you Belle Mont Farm for creating a beautiful experience for us!

It was a short but very sweet stay for us at Belle Mont Farm - a quick weekend trip over to St Kitts from our stay in Nevis and needless to say, we weren't disappointed!
We were greeted with a fabulous reception from Gail and her team, who told us all about the hotel, followed by a fantastic poolside lunch!
We were whisked away to our rooms by the golf carts that run up and down the hill and were speechless! If there's one tip about staying at Belle Mont Farm, definitely book into one of the villas with the infinity pools, you won't regret it! With huge sliding doors opening up to the deck, you're guaranteed to wake up to the incredible views of not only St Kitts, but the surrounding islands too. The outside bathrooms were a fantastic concept, and really allowed you to enjoy the island way of life!
We ate most of our meals at The Kitchen, with fantastic service and excellent food, we didn't go hungry!
Belle Mont Farm is a beautiful place to relax and unwind, taking in the beautiful nature and sights of St Kitts from your own room - Book for longer than a weekend visit, because you won't want to leave!
