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
- Free WiFi
- Golf Course
- Handicap Accessible
- 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
We had a fantastic week long stay in early April. The friendliness of the staff was awesome. It was truly a wonderful experience made special by the caring and attentive staff members. It was terrific hospitality.
Our room faced Nevis Peak and was exceptionally clean, quiet, well appointed and comfortable.
We enjoyed the food and atmosphere of all the restaurants.
Golf staff was was very attentive and memorable. The island has experienced a drier than normal spring so the fairways were firm but the greens were in good shape. A fun layout with great views of the resort and neighboring island of St. Kitts.
We love Nevis Four Seasons but during our second time visiting the property we found the hotel is booking large company outings. During our stay there were 250 adults on a company trip that overrun the pools. It was like an adult "spring break" atmosphere. Sadly we could not enjoy any of the outdoor facilities (pools and beach areas) due to the over serving, screaming, partying, etc. that took place.
Our room was spacious, updated and had an amazing view. Beautiful pools and beaches. The staff was warm, personable and extremely helpful and accomodating. Dinner at Mango was fantastic. We can't wait to come back.
Service at the resort was personable and top notch! The rooms were always pristine. I thought a few times the room staff was hiding and watching for us to leave so they could clean again. The grounds were immaculate and we never saw anyone clipping hedges or running power equipment. Beach and bar areas were attentively managed by super friendly and responsive staff. Can't wait to go back!
Upon check in keys didn’t work, went to the front desk (from building 10-golf cart ride) and stood around while the front desk staff attended to all other things. Mind you I was the only guest in front of her. Finally I was told they would deliver the keys to my room.
Ordered foam pillows - which took 45 mins to get to the room. And room service- waited well over an hour and half.
The most disappointing of all is the lack of empathy from the staff.
