Expansive Caribbean sleep that pairs the low-key Nevis lifestyle with five-star 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.
