The Hermitage Plantation Inn in Nevis, Saint Kitts and Nevis

The unspoiled natural beauty of the northern Caribbean island of Nevis boasts cloud-covered peaks, lush landscapes, and the rhythmic lapping of the shimmering, cerulean sea against her coast. With direct flights from major international hubs like New York, Miami, and London, your own personal utopia awaits at The Hermitage Plantation Inn, the jewel of the West Indies. A quaint, boutique family hotel sitting under a canopy of tall palm trees, and surrounded by aromatic foliage of the region, The Hermitage Plantation combines Caribbean hospitality with five-star service. Outfitted in twill, gingham, and lace, the hotel's 15 rooms and playful gingerbread cottages are dispersed throughout the property, allowing for optimum privacy amidst the romantic, tropical backdrop. With a year-round climate that remains temperate and comfortable, there is no need for air conditioners, open your doors to the gentle Caribbean breeze, and take in the paradise that surrounds you at The Hermitage Plantation Inn.

No matter what your plans, a trip to the Caribbean is not complete without a walk along the beach. Nearby Pinney's Beach offers the best of local entertainment and food fare. Guests looking for adventure may rent vehicles and cruise along the coast, enjoy an exhilarating horseback ride, or explore the "briny deep" in scuba gear. Those just looking for time away may sit back in a hammock on the veranda and sip the infamous Hermitage Plantation "Rum Punch" as the stresses of the everyday just melt away. The hotel's restaurant offers breakfast, lunch, dinner, and afternoon tea complete with fragrant herbs from local gardens, delicious fish straight from the sea, produce delivered daily by resident farmers, and recipes from the best local chefs. Sample regional favorites like lemongrass and coconut milk soup, and roast suckling pig, but save room for internationally known passion-fruit and ginger cheesecake. After you have received your fill of the island's finest, retire to your room, where The Hermitage Plantation Inn's attentive, yet unobtrusive staff will ensure that your ideal vacation exceeds expectation.

What an amazing idyllic place! This is experiencing the best of the old time Caribbean with its laid-back ease and charm. I literally said to my husband it feels like time has slowed down as you soak in the ambiance of the place. We came to The Hermitage on a recommendation from our Anguillian friend and flew to Nevis on Trans Anguilla air from Anguilla for a 3 night stay. Now we have to do that every time! Getting to The Hermitage was super easy and so was our experience when we arrived. Richie had Champ the cab driver pick us up at the airport (which was a breeze to clear customs). We asked to rent a car and the car was there the next morning right on time. We mentioned we would like to do a waterfall hike and Richie and Kadillah (sp?) at the front desk arranged for a guide. Richie and Richard Lupinacci and staff were all so accommodating and friendly. We stayed in Pasture House cottage which is next to the old stable house. It had wonderful breezes with a separate living room with tiny kitchenette and bedroom complete with four poster bed and mosquito netting. We had a nice porch with a hammock and chairs with a nice ocean view in the distance. We especially loved seeing the green monkeys at play and roaming around along with donkeys and goats and of course the Hermitage's ambassador dog Toffee! The grounds and layout are so perfect dotted with the West Indian style cottages and architecture with magnificent views of Mt. Nevis. The great house is so charming with lovely areas to lounge about, a fun little bar and nice open air dining area.One evening after dinner we tried some different aged rums based upon Richards' recommendation and were excited to find out we can purchase the El Dorado at home. The food was delicious and breakfast was a real treat each morning. They have these delicious mini cassava muffins that I looked forward to and the coconut french toast was superb. We weren't there for the pig roast buffet but did get to sample the wonderful pizzas on Friday Italian night where they fire up the wood stove oven. This is a place where you can mingle with other guests and the owners and staff and you feel right at home. I can't say we have ever stayed at a place like this before and we found it to be thoroughly enjoyable. The Lupinacci's have created a special oasis that makes you long to return.

My family has been coming to Nevis and the Hermitage over the past 14 years. We wouldn’t keep coming back were it not for the beauty and irresistible charm of the place and the warmth and hospitality of owners (the Lupinacci’s) and the staff. They have always made us feel like part of their family and it’s always so hard to say goodbye. The cottages and furnishings ooze old school (which is to our liking), and the views up towards the mountain and out to the sea (the especially of course at sunset) are splendid. The Wednesday night Pig Roast offers a really authentic Caribbean culinary experience, and the pizza on Friday equals or exceeds anything we have at home (and we don’t exactly come from a backwater town). The breakfast, however, is my personal favorite. If you like French Toast, don’t miss theirs. If you prefer glitz and the latest modern amenities, this probably isn’t the place for you. But if you’re drawn to such intangibles as charm, warmth and character, you should give it a try.

What a treat to stay in one of the chattel houses at The Hermitage and to enjoy the service and hospitality of Hermitage staff. The inn has a lovely location to take advantage of the trade winds. No air conditioning but no need for it. We got a healthy dose of fresh air both day and night. Our accommodation was sweet. Two rooms with a bathroom. Front room is well furnished and has a tiny kitchen. The bedroom opens to a pretty back porch which has comfy chairs. From the porch we could watch the Vervets at play and feral donkeys grazing. I enjoyed the swimming pool for water walking. (Would be nice to offer a few noodles or other flotation devices.). The great house is exquisite. Guests can gather in various rooms. The dining veranda is beautiful. Meals were terrific. We especially loved the pig and goat roasts. Yummy. Thanks to all staff for making our stay so pleasant.

Just returned from an idyllic week at The Hermitage. Lying on my enormous four poster bed, with double doors open, watching the procession of wild monkeys from the rainforest on the doorstep was truly amazing! This hotel has 'old school' charm and attention, with delicious food, a relaxing swimming pool, tennis court, and the most fabulous rum punches I have ever experienced! It is in a very unspoilt corned of nevis, far from the madding crowds, with the sound of frogs at night and lizards lazily sunbathing by the pool, whilst beautiful humming birds and butterflies pass by. Idyllic! Big thanks to family-owners Ritchie, Lupie and the most gorgeous hotel dog Tufty-I fell in love with him daily!

We had dinner the last Saturday night of the season. The food was amazing. Without a doubt, I had THE best rum punch ever. I wish I’d not taken so long to write this because I’ve forgotten the young man’s name who was at the bar that night. The owner, Richard Lupinacci, as noted in other reviews spent time chatting with us. This last night was also a few days before Hurricane Irma came through. The staff treated us like royalty despite an incoming hurricane and it being the last night of the summer season. It was just a lovely atmospheric dinner in a unique and historic place. I can’t wait to return and repeat.
