Four Seasons Resort – Nevis
What We Love
- Works for families as well as couples thanks to a kids program and an adults-only swimming pool, for those who prefer a quiet getaway
- The Nevisian produce served at “farm to fork” seaside eatery Mango; the fresh seafood caught by local fisherman at Pinney’s Beach and grilled for guests
- Luxurious touches, like the poolside towel butlers
What To Know
- Ferry picks up guests in St. Kitts and delivers them to the resort; rum punch, water, cool towels and sunscreen are provided onboard
- Some rooms are far from the resort’s main restaurants; call for a golf cart or request a room near the main pool
- Nevis is a sleepy sort of island, so off-property nightlife and shopping opportunities are limited
- Adults Only
- Eco friendly
- Free WiFi
- Golf Course
- Kids Club
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
Island colonial. Public spaces are airy, open-sided pavilions decorated with traditional West Indian gingerbread-style woodwork and surrounded by perfectly manicured lawns and lush landscaping. From the beach, take in dramatic views of emerald-green Nevis Peak, which is often swirled in mist even when it’s sunny on the beach.
Bed and Bath
Guestrooms feature teak furnishings, spacious seating areas and shaded outdoor spaces; many are decorated in soothing, preppy shades of navy or yellow and white. The classic, crisp island look is completed by white wooden shutters. The oversize bathrooms feature products from L’Occitane and heaps of fluffy towels, while the tiled flooring throughout both rooms provides a cool respite from a day at the beach.
A vertigo-inducing golf cart ride takes guests through the hills to the Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course, which offers dramatic views of St. Kitts and the deep blue sea beyond. There are plenty of ways to stay active: on the tennis courts, at the Sail Laser school, in the state-of-the art fitness center or on guided excursions to the island’s rain forest hiking trails. For those looking for something more restorative, the resort’s spa offers treatments using its custom Coconut Frangipani line, as well as a serene plunge pool.
In the Area
Nevis’s colonial history dates back to the 1600s. The island is dotted with former plantation homes, historical sights, and the redolent ruins of old sugar mills. Check out the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton; have dinner at Montpelier Plantation, which was once visited by Princess Diana; and throw caution to the wind with a Killer Bee rum punch at Sunshine’s, a seaside shack that’s just a short stumble from the resort.
How to Get There
My wife and I were extremely fortunate to occupy villa 1728 at the Four Seasons in Nevis during the end of September. The sense of remoteness and privacy on the lush hillside provided the quiet time together we were both looking for to mark our 30th anniversary during this stay. Add to this the unique amenities of the villa just put it over the top in experiences. The villa’s private infinity pool overlooking the west coast line of Nevis provided the perfect venue for watching the scenic sunsets. The master bedroom also afforded a waking view from the king size bed of the west coast skyline and flora around the pool. The bedroom’s en-suite bathroom provided choices of a large soaking tub, dual indoor showers, dual outdoor showers and two sink/vanity areas. Besides having a spacious living room and nicely equipped kitchen, it had a lower level housing exercise and massage rooms. We couldn’t resist taking advantage of the massage room and booked an in-villa, couples massage. Just being able to just walk back up to the pool afterwards relaxed to enjoy viewing a sunset added to the pleasurable atmosphere. Housekeeping was wonderful with both morning and evening services. Having our own golf cart to travel back and forth between the main resort facilities at the coast and the villa on the hillside provided entertaining experiences to share as we observed the many green Vervet Monkeys along the way and navigation challenges at night finding the way back to the villa. Even though the resort was still undergoing major renovations with several sections closed, the paradise of the villa made these inconveniences minor. The staff was wonderful and always helpful. We did go offsite for two dinners at eateries just a quick walk south along the beach. Sunshines Restaurant and Turtle Time Bar & Grill were excellent places and provided us the chance to experience more of the local culture vibe and cuisine. While this was probably a once-in-a-lifetime experience for us, we hope to have the ability to go back to this villa for a future anniversary and stay longer than the four nights of this recent stay.
Poor service, expensive overpriced for quality of experience. Offered services not delivered i.e in room breakfast - didnt even inform this service would not be delivered.Only positive about this hotel was the location and accessibility to other bars and restaurants.
The Four Seasons Nevis/West Indies is a beautiful sprawling resort with several pools, restaurants, bars and a staff eager to help make your stay memorable and relaxing. The staff, in particular, knew our names and greeted us - as well as providing the best customer service experience I have ever had. Will return! No doubt!
The property is gorgeous, there are lots of water sports, the food is good and MOST important, the staff is outstanding - friendly, helpful and very capable. They always had a smile and were always very pleasant.
First of all we had a wonderful family vacation at Four Seasons Nevis. I was torn between giving this an "Excellent" review or a "Very Good" review because of the renovations going on when we were there, but didn't want to disenchant anyone from staying here, I would just wait until everything is completed.Pros:Getting here - Loved being able to go from airport, being guided to taxi and having our luggage taken, then getting on a short boat ride to the resort's own peer. We were greeted by a lovely staff member who brought us directly to our room.Rooms - We had the Luxury Suite with attached extra room (big family) - very pretty and plenty of space for everyone. Mattress was very hard. The cleaning staff did an excellent job every day!Staff - Amazing! Some of the kindest/most helpful people anywhere! Concierge - Very helpful! Please contact them before you go! They are so helpful in making all arrangements (dining, activities) so you are all set when you get there - although, they are definitely able to do it while you are there too!Spa: Although small in size services were excellent - again lovely staff who are very knowledgeable!Tennis facilities: ExcellentBeach: Beautiful beach with clean water, lovely beach service.Pools: Very clean, lovely complimentary bites to eat brought around very often. Staff set you up in your chairs and took friendly care of you during your time there.Snorkeling: Lovely right off beach at resort! My husband had a Barracuda swim right next to him as well as a school of several hundred fish!Dining: Mangos was very good. We really enjoyed the Rum Pairing Dinner. Breakfast buffet was a nice way to start of the day - I agree with others who say to get the breakfast inclusive package.Cons: "Soft Renovation" was really more than that. The adult pool was totally closed the week we were there. There were also cranes on other side of beach. In addition, they closed the Main building entirely. It also affected our dining experience. One night only one restaurant was open to serve all guests - we waited two hours for our food to be served. Mangos did not have any record of our dining reservations for two nights (we did show them our confirmations) I'm not sure what happened, but they were more than apologetic and made us feel welcome and more than made up for it! All in all this is a beautiful place and a lovely way to relax! Remember that you are on Island time and not to be in a hurry!
