The Four Seasons Resort Nevis is set to undergo a multimillion-dollar, multi-phase enhancement project this year.
The multi-phase renovation to the 350-acre property will kick off in April 2018 with a redesign of all 196 guest rooms and suites.
“The renovation of Four Seasons Resort Nevis underscores our commitment to a continued investment in the island of Nevis and its people,” says Gonzalo Güelman Ros, the property’s General Manager. “With a partnership more than 25 years in the making, this project supports our common goal of being a destination of preference for Caribbean travelers.”
Preserving the architectural and design integrity of the original building exteriors, the room renovations will feature light and fresh decor with new textures, patterns and color.
Design details will reference a fashionable voice of the Caribbean spirit, with new wall covers that reference British botanical patterns popular in 19th century England, rendered in a contemporary pale sea-foam green, according to a statement.
The multi-colored geometric carpet is inspired by the tradition of Caribbean stained glass windows, and the desk chairs are inspired by the flora and fauna of Nevis.
“Built on a former sugar and coconut plantation dating to the late 1790s, we wanted to maintain Nevis’ quaint and intimate reputation as an untouched Caribbean destination,” said Todd-Avery Lenahan, Founder of TAL Design Studios. “The refreshed interior design is not meant to be a complete overhaul, but rather the realisation of a new vision for the Resort that speaks to the modern Four Seasons traveller, while painstakingly preserving the humble charm of the Resort’s small island home.”
Following the start of the room renovations, the Resort will also begin a reimagining of its Great House and lobby areas, as well as its food and beverage outlets.
All guest rooms and suites are expected to be completed by November 2018.
