A holiday in Nevis is the perfect Caribbean retreat, and retreats do not come more elegantly secluded as historic Montpelier Plantation & Beach. Plus we have a very special offer to take you there.

Welcome to your holiday in Nevis, an island that naturally became a sort of Caribbean retreat. Feeling worlds apart from its more party-prepared Caribbean cousins, it’s perhaps fitting that the island is shaped like a sombrero, with 3,200-foot-tall Nevis Peak at its centre. Spending one’s time there can feel much like one long lazy day under the Caribbean sun, shaded only by swaying palms and the appropriate headgear.

Holiday in Nevis

It is an oasis that measures just 36 square miles in area, and Nevis remains a largely unspoilt island of lush, undulating and green landscape, Georgian colonial houses and little coastal towns that would not be out of place in southern Europe, quiet, pearly coastlines and teeming, shallow reefs. For those going on holiday in Nevis, the island is accessible only by air from neighbouring islands like Antigua, or by one marvellously scenic ferry from Saint Kitts, the island’s bigger brother. As one approaches the island, its small size and more demure atmosphere become apparent, but this is a place that is big on getting away from it all.

Such a natural retreat deserves an equally harmonious hideaway for its visitors. Let us, therefore, introduce you to Montpelier Plantation & Beach. This boutique hotel in Nevis presents itself more like a collection of cosy cottages than a resort. Beautiful stone walled buildings hide themselves in tiny alcoves surrounded by tropical foliage on the coastal hillside. The classic architecture stems from Montpelier’s rich history as a sugar crop plantation, dating back to the 17th century, and even bore witness to Nelson’s marriage.

Back to the present day and this exclusivity and feel of retreat remains so strong. This independent resort, family-run by the Hoffman family – Caribbean residents for four generations – Montpelier is also a proud member of the distinguished Relais & Chateaux group of luxury hoteliers, marrying sophistication with its heavenly haven-like qualities. Each of the 19 rooms is individually decorated, light and airy, and featuring as little boundary as possible from indoors to out. The resort features a 60-foot pool with stunning views, and a private beach from where you can decide to be as active, or indeed inactive, as you like.

With such elegance you can expect to be a little self-indulgent during your stay here. If this hillside retreat weren’t enough, the onsite spa suite is that oasis-within-an-oasis. Choose to have your treatments on a terrace for that extra special feeling and the Caribbean breeze between your toes. Furthermore, Montpelier is a yoga retreat, and there can be few better spots in the world to practise your meditation or take part in bookable classes.

Finally, the food. Having received AAA Four Diamond awards for its cuisine you can rest assured that Montpelier’s chefs are dedicated to only the highest class of gourmet fare. French and Caribbean-inspired cuisine does not even begin to encompass the innovation that goes into every dish here.

Oh, and they have an exceptional wine cellar featuring a collection of aged rums. Just to bring you out from under the sombrero and into that classic Caribbean place of perfection.
