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

- Nevis is a sleepy sort of island, so off-property nightlife and shopping opportunities are limited

- Kids Club
- Parking On Site

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
If I could award 4.75 stars, I would. While the room we were in was renovated inside, as were lobby and restaurant interiors, the outsides of all buildings were definitely showing their age- they were closing after our stay to complete the renovations, and I'm sure they will be lovely. We thought the people, service, and overall ambiance were delightful. Not sure if it was due to late May being "shoulder season" or the fact that the resort was about to close down for the into, but the place felt practically empty, which was awesome for us. Will definitely go back!
Some of the warmest & friendliest staff of any resort we've stayed, in all areas & departments. The food at all the restaurants was very good or excellent. It is closing soon (or perhaps already has closed) for a refurbishment, so it will really sparkle when that is completed. Rooms are very spacious & comfortable. The beach is lovely, but unfortunately has no waves. Great place for a relaxing vacation.
We have stayed at the resort a few times. Each time has been better than the next. You can't beat the location, view, amenities; and the people who work on the resort are even nicer than the surroundings. On our most recent visit we were a party of 16 spanning three generations and four families. The hotel was preparing to close for renovations at the end of our stay and as soon as they were aware that our trip was being impacted the hotel bent over backwards to make our stay exceptional. They kept restaurants open for longer hours and days and much more. I highly recommend staying here.
