Best Hotels in Nevis

The 7 Best Nevis Hotels

By: Caribbean Journal Staff - November 30, 2016

There are only about 400 rooms on Nevis, but what the island’s accommodations may lack in quantity they more than make up for with charm and individuality. And while St. Kitts’ little sister is best best known for its historic plantation inns, there are worthy resort and villa options, too – all of which add up to a week’s worth of perfect places to make your island base. Here are the seven best Nevis hotels.

Best Hotels in Nevis - Four Seasons

Four Seasons Resort Nevis Combining modern resort amenities with old-Caribbean charm, this oceanfront oasis on Pinney’s Beach has 196 plush rooms and 50 villas. It is also a great fit for families (the kids’ program is top notch); spa mavens (try the Spa under The Stars massage by moonlight) and golfers (where else can you tee off in front of a gallery of green monkeys?) It all adds up to the leader among Nevis hotels.

Best Hotels in Nevis

Montpelier Plantation and Beach This tranquil retreat, a former sugar estate in the foothills of Mount Nevis (where Princess Diana and her sons once famously retreated), is a pastoral haven, offering a cottage colony of 19 rooms scattered over lush landscape. Candlelit dinners in the centuries-old sugar mill are a highlight, and beach lovers can repair to the hotel’s private strip, a short drive away.


Nisbet Plantation The island’s only beachfront plantation inn is famous for its iconic “avenue of palms” that leads to the sea, but we love it for the laidback atmosphere; genteel afternoon tea; and the bountiful Thursday-night seafood buffet feast.

Best Hotels in Nevis - Paradise Beach

Paradise Beach Nevis Rally your squad and decamp to this enclave of seven beachfront villas, where, after days spent exploring Nevis’ nooks and crannies, you’ll return to home comforts that include a Bali-inspired great room; private plunge pool; and your own slice of palapa-pierced sand. This property, where Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau stayed during a family vacation, is among the hippest Nevis hotels.

Best Hotels in Nevis - Hermitage Nevis

The Hermitage Come Hump Day, islanders know that all roads lead to this hillside haven’s all-you-can-eat pig roast. But we’re fans of the unique family-run clutch of gingerbread cottages (which flank a restored great house said to be the oldest wooden house in the Caribbean) every day of the week.

Best Hotels in Nevis

Golden Rock Inn The juxtaposition of colorful modern furniture and paintings against a backdrop of weathered colonial-era buildings makes this plantation inn special, but that’s not the only thing. Other standouts: 11 charmingly retro rooms; spectacular views of Mount Nevis; and lush gardens that are a horticulturalist’s dream that help make this one of the best hotels in Nevis.


The Mount Nevis Hotel On a budget? This family-owned hotel is a good choice, with island-inspired rooms, suites and a villa on a 19th-century lime plantation at Round Hill Estate that offer comfy digs for every type of traveler.
