Luxury hotel holiday Montpelier Plantation Nevis

On the small Caribbean island of Nevis, the Montpelier Plantation is overflowing with history. A transformed 17th century house, the building is brought up to date by its stylish interior spaces. In contrast with the ruins that punctuate the grounds, modern art, painted and sculpted by artists who live locally, adorns the rooms and halls inside. We believe that the intimacy of this hotel, along with the unique location up in the hills, means it has great appeal. Ideal as part of a twin-centre, coast-and-countryside holiday, the Montpelier Plantation offers a few days of peace and rural tranquillity.
