Nevis The easy charm of Nevis is a rare pleasure in the Caribbean, a tiny island that somehow manages to slow down time for its visitors. And while it’s small, it’s meant to be explored, from the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton to the hot springs set at what was the first hotel ever built in the Caribbean (now a government building) to the inviting hikes up Nevis Peak. And while there are a host of great little boutique stays to try like Hermitage and Montpelier, it’s still the Four Seasons Nevis that remains the island’s true destination resort. And now the Four Seasons is upping its game, with a new program of weekly stays at the resort’s enviable collection of private villas. It’s called Private Retreats, and it’s a new way to enjoy the splendor of the resort’s famous villas.
