Luxury authentic Caribbean holiday at Nisbet Plantation, Nevis

A holiday to Nevis takes you to a charming island in the Caribbean, full of traditional values, pretty gingerbread-style houses and thriving arts and crafts. The island is small and friendly. It’s easy to take a trip into the surrounding countryside to hike through the old plantations and rainforest, or to cycle along the tracks. There are numerous activities, both sporting and cultural. Some of the many authentic local attractions are listed below. Your base on Nevis is Nisbet Plantation: an historic, plantation-house, boutique hotel on the beach. Originally a sugar and then a coconut plantation, Nisbet Plantation Nevis is set amongst thirty acres of grounds with direct access to a white sand beach. It was once the family home of Fanny Nisbet, who married Lord Nelson. The Great House with its gracious colonial feel is an elegant setting for afternoon tea and dinner. One of the most attractive aspects for us of Nisbet Plantation is its mixture of historic house with tradition and spacious grounds of swaying coconut palms. An avenue of palms leads several hundred yards down to the sea. The beach is white sand and the swimming area is protected by an offshore reef. Right on the beach are the swimming pool, Coconuts restaurant and the Sea Breeze beach bar, where full cooked breakfasts and lunches are served. An outstanding feature of the hotel is the cuisine, of an exceptionally high standard, making imaginative use of local produce with a European sophistication. For those that wish, All Inclusive rates and Half Board are also available. There are thirty-six bedrooms located in different styles of single-storey bungalow or two-storey houses among the palm trees in the grounds. We love the comfort and space of the Premier Suites, closest to the sea, but all rooms have a good quality feel and are very well furnished in a contemporary Caribbean style.

We include a scheduled flight with British Airways from London to St Kitts. You are met by the hotel’s representative and transferred to Nisbet Plantation on the neighbouring island of Nevis by car and boat. The two islands are separated by just two miles of water, so it’s a short and scenic boat ride.

You have six whole days to enjoy the charm of Nevis and the amenities of Nisbet Plantation. Designed to complement the indulgent Caribbean climate, the hotel’s colonial-style architecture artfully sifts lively sea breezes through trellised balconies and shuttered windows. The marvellous structure is witnessed at its best from the well-maintained garden lawns that link the house to the beach and pool areas, creating a broad and grassy boulevard bordered by lofty palms. Days at Nisbet Plantation may be filled with action and idleness alike. Beachside hammocks propose guilty indulgence, where swinging bodies enjoy the shade with book – or cocktail – in hand. Take a refreshing dip in either the oceanfront, freshwater pool or in the sea, protected by an off-shore reef. This expanse of sea is equally suited to water sports, from kayaking to snorkelling. The shoreline is brimming with life, and snorkelling can uncover an underwater microcosm of native species hidden amongst reefs, wrecks and caverns. Witness more of inland Nevis by cycling or hiking through the rainforest, or by renting scooters for pacey tours. You may equally grasp the heart of the Caribbean experience on Nevis within the plantation’s boundaries, where colonial pastimes may be pursued on lazy croquet lawns and tennis courts. More importantly, in order to grasp the vibe of this Caribbean island, it is essential to become acquainted with local people. This contact is ensured by the Nisbet Plantation family, each member of which always strives to nurture a personal relationship with every guest. This is the predominant and enduring impression of Nisbet Plantation that prevails in each of its guests: the friendliness, enthusiasm and hospitality of its staff.

You have the morning free until you need to check-out and then your transfer will return you to the airport on St Kitts in the afternoon or early evening depending on the time of your flight to London.
