Montpelier Plantation & Beach in Nevis, Saint Kitts and Nevis

Poised above the Caribbean Sea in the lush hills of Nevis, Montpelier Plantation & Beach is a breathtaking sanctuary far removed from the stresses of modern life. This beautiful 60-acre estate, a Relais & Chateaux property, has been meticulously restored in keeping with its heritage of elegance and style. Classic island cuisine tantalizes your tastes, while spacious guest rooms feature tranquil vistas of the hills and sea. Service is personable and discreet, and the options for recreation and quiet time are seemingly endless.

Nevis, a secluded volcanic island awash in laid back charm, promises the perfect balance of relaxation and activity. At the center of Nevis stands the spectacular cloud-fringed Nevis Peak, a dormant volcano covered by dense tropical forest. The atmosphere is an intoxicating blend of sunlight, sea air and fantastically abundant greenery. Most of the former plantation fields have given way to this tropical vegetation, though a small portion of land is still farmed for sugar that is used in the kitchens of Montpelier. Read a good book as you lounge on the private beach, or treat yourself to a massage, yoga or game of tennis. Golf nearby or join an island ecologist on hikes through the island's tropical rain forests and deserted sugar plantations.

TripAdvisor Traveler Review Rating Reviewed 4 weeks ago

We visited Montpelier for a week on our honeymoon last year. We went the last week of May into the first week of June, which was technically "out of season" as far as they were concerned, but practically perfect in every way as far as I was concerned. Being "out of season," we practically had the resort to ourselves! I think it was four days we had the pool completely to ourselves until 4 or 5 in the afternoon. And the day we went down to the beach - with a packed lunch you pick up after breakfast - we were the only people down there. Well, us and the bartender, who delivered the most amazing pina coladas directly to our chaise lounges - and then shaved fresh nutmeg over them. Hyperbole aside, we enjoyed our stay immensely. The staff were wonderful, friendly and catered to our every need. They booked anything we wanted to do off-site and ordered transportation to boot. We literally didn't have to do anything but say "I want to ." One day we took a catamaran snorkeling tour and brought back a (totally approved by the guides!) conch shell and someone went so far as to bleach it for us so that we could safely transport it home. The attention to detail was simply wonderful. Our room was comfortable and private, large with a very large bathroom and a lovely little patio overlooking the monkey playground. I haven't even started about the restaurants. Each one was wonderful. Eating at the sugar mill was an experience you don't soon forget. And, I have food allergies, which can make travel challenging. Not so at Montpelier. By the second day, they knew who I was and gluten-free toast would show up at breakfast, or accommodations would be made to the evening's dinner menu. The service was graceful and elegant and attention was paid to the details. One of the most lovely parts of the stay was cocktail hour in the great room each evening before dinner. Do yourself a favor, dress the part and enjoy the experience. It's not something you get to do at home. I could probably go on and on, but if I keep telling you all the great things about the Montpelier, then you're going to want to go and you might beat me to my preferred chair at the pool or on the beach!

From the moment my husband and I arrived at Montpelier, the place felt like home. The friendly staff, the lush tropical gardens and comfortable room all reinforced this feeling. The 6 days spent there were wonderfully relaxing! Each morning we enjoyed a fantastic and generous breakfast, with a special treat on Sundays with the brunch buffet offering lots of local delicacies. We would definitely recommend the Montpelier Hotel on Nevis and we look forward to our next visit!

A stellar experience: relaxed, venerable, and a staff who are genuinely friendly and accomodating. Idyllic, serene, and where time slows down. Superb culinary experience with romantic ambience. Highly recommended.

We have been visiting Nevis for a number of years, but always in August when the Inn is closed. We love walking around the grounds; it is a special place with a lot of history. This year when we returned to Nevis the Inn was open so we went for dinner. You begin with cocktails in the great room and then go through for dinner. Service is attentive and polite. The food quality was high, the menu is limited, but there were enough options for our party of 6. We were celebrating two birthdays and at the last minute, the chef whipped up a two layer cake with whipped cream frosting, chocolate squares and a sparkler instead of a candle. The cake was delicious! Make sure you arrive early enough to walk around the grounds before dining. It's a unique dining experience here.

My husband and I spent 8 days at Montpelier, from July 15-July 23, 2017. Our impressions... Some highlights of the resort - Beautiful, stone colonial Great House; well-appointed Great Room; unique, colonial sugar mill (the pool is right next to the mill); outdoor spa area for massages with a view of the grounds; a hammock with a hill and ocean view; lovely landscaping with brilliant, red Flamboyant trees (and at the foot of the entrance way, a large cactus with stunning white flowers that open only at night); ocean view as well as a view of Nevis Peak. Lots of interesting history - Alexander Hamilton was born in Nevis and Horatio Nelson married Fanny Nisbit under a tree about a short walk away from the resort. (More recently, in 1992, after she and Prince Charles announced their separation, then-Princess Diana escaped to Montpelier to avoid the media). Donkeys, goats, monkeys, hermit crabs and lizards roam on and around the property. (We could hear the donkeys braying throughout the day). Very small gift shop with a small selection of necessities (e.g., sunscreen), some clothing and some jewelry. Very quiet and safe to stroll around. Our room - We stayed in Room 12, one of the smaller rooms. We had a large-four poster bed, bathroom with double vanity and tub/shower combination, two wardrobes with ample room for clothing and sundries, and a small patio with two chairs that overlooked the grounds with an ocean view in the distance. The room's decor was not up-to-the-minute, but it was simple and clean with everything in good working order. The A/C was very effective. Ample electrical outlets to use/recharge devices and US current. Wi-fi was spotty at best in our room but consistent at the pool. Housekeeping was unobtrusive, efficient and thorough. We got a new arrangement of fresh flowers every day and turn-down service while we were at dinner. What else is in the room - The usual suspects - electric kettle with a selection of teas and instant coffee (creamers and sugar as well), mini bar (two complimentary bottles of water every day), small refrigerator, small safe, blow-dryer, ironing board and iron (laundry services are offered, but we did not need them), spray (DEET) insect repellent and two full-size umbrellas. And in the bathroom, there were full-size personal care products (shower gel, shampoo, conditioner and body lotion) of a decent quality, so you can skip bringing your own to save room in your luggage. Again, everything was in good working order. The power situation on the island - Nevis has frequent and significant (in scope and duration) power outages. The island is in the process of installing a new generator to ensure a reliable source of energy. Installation is scheduled for August 2017 and you can follow the story on the internet by reading local news reports. HOWEVER, Montpelier has its own integrated generator, so although the power went out frequently throughout our stay, the generator cycled on within seconds and we were never without power. Other locations on the island will be without power during these times (for example, the water features at the Botanical Gardens were not working due to a power outage), so locations outside the resort (e.g., restaurants) may have limited services and be unable to process credit cards, so you may want to take this into account. If the generator installation goes as planned, this may no longer be an issue by Fall/Winter 2017. The beach - The beach is an approximately 20-minute shuttle ride from the resort (too far and too unsafe - due to the narrow, winding roads and traffic - to walk). The beach is private, with a full-service bar and eating area, approximately six wooden cabanas to take a break from the sun or escape the rain (there are also lots of tree for shade) and an ample number of lounge chairs, beach chairs, and little tables. There is no food service at the bar, but Montpelier will provide you with a delicious picnic lunch in a cooler (sent down with you on the shuttle), which we highly recommend. Another couple walked down the beach and had lunch at a different resort. Because we traveled off-peak, we had the entire beach to ourselves one day; on the busiest day, there were only three other couples. NO noise, music, jet skis, vendors, etc., only the sound of the waves. Sand is volcanic (if you walk a short way down the beach, you'll reach a black-sand beach) and the coastline is a combination of rocky outcroppings and small stretches of sand. The water was warm and completely calm; great for swimming and wading (soft sand underfoot - no rocks). Walking along the beach, we saw a giant sea turtle, a sting ray, cows and goats grazing on the hills above and lots of local birds. I don't know if this was the result of the weather/season during which we traveled but there were ZERO bugs/insects at the beach, so our days on the beach were very pleasant! The food - We ate at the resort every day and LOVED the food. The continental breakfast was more than enough for us - every morning there was a selection of fruit juices, fresh fruit, cereal, bread and pastries and a selection of delicious home-made yogurts. The servers will bring coffee, tea, and toast to your table. Once we ordered from the menu and I really enjoyed the egg-white and goat cheese scrambled eggs. For lunch, we ordered picnic lunches for the beach or ate at the poolside restaurant. The pool restaurant (Indigo) had a wide variety of choices - a representative menu is on the website. My favorite was the conch stew while my husband loved the grilled shrimp wrap. For dinner, we ate at 750 and were extremely happy with the choices and all of our meals. Each meal was preceded (sometimes) by canapes and (always) an amuse bouche, something different every night. The menu, with accurate prices, is on the website. Dinner, with no appetizers, one drink each and no coffee/desserts cost about $120 per night. One evening, because there were so few guests, dinner was served in the Mill Privee (seating is in the sugar mill), with the 750 menu, so that was a lovely surprise. We did also eat (with only one other couple) in the MIll Privee, where a set, 5-course menu is served in the candle-lit sugar mill. While it's one of the more expensive meals we've eaten ($95 per person, not including drinks, plus an additional 24% tax/gratuity charge), it was a worthwhile and unique experience I'm glad we didn't miss. It was also lots of fun seeing the staff prepare the mill throughout the day, knowing it was (almost!) just for me. The service - The service was fine, and all of the servers were friendly, some more outgoing than others. However, anything you want, they will get for you. The pacing at dinner was LEISURELY, but, hey, where else did we have to be? :-) The Spa - Spa services were basic and good. We booked a couples hot-stone massage which was fun and relaxing. The therapists were friendly and competent. (We've had better, more luxurious services on other vacations, but this was fine). Recommendations - If you're looking to travel off-peak, you can get have a low-key, relaxing vacation here, and may even have the facilities almost completely to yourself for a few days. I'm calling this my "Princess Diana" vacation, as I'm sure she and her family had the resort pretty much to themselves as well!
