Nisbet Plantation Beach Club in Nevis, Saint Kitts and Nevis

Nisbet Plantation Beach Club retains the Old World charm of its sugar plantation days in the 1700s, when Nevis native Fanny Nisbet and her husband, a British Navy captain, helmed its grounds. The first “gingerbread cottages” welcomed guests in the 1950s. Today the resort, overlooking a rocky, windswept beach in the shadow of Nevis’s mountain peaks, is renowned for its service. Butlers address guests by name as tropical cocktails appear by the tranquil beachside infinity pool.

Rise early and take a Vespa for a spin around the island under the clouds of Nevis Peak, an extinct volcano – Christopher Columbus mistook the foggy halo for snow when he spotted the island in 1493. Catch a glimpse of green vervet monkey roaming the roadside vegetation and curious hummingbirds hovering near flowers. Cool off at the beach bar when you return, feet in the sand. Admire Eva Wilkin paintings in the Great House as buttery Caribbean lobster melts in your mouth.

You will see from my previous entries on this site I’ve been here many times, but this time, after my wife’s passing last year, I visited on my own, not without a certain amount of trepidation. I am into my second week now, and I needn’t have worried at all. I have been treated like royalty. Every single member of the staff, including those new to the Nisbet, have made me feel so at home and I have not had one iota of loneliness. I will not go into detail about the food, room, etc., as it is all very much the same excellence here. There have been some small changes... but nothing too drastic. A wonderful place to visit and relax, particularly at this time of year (April) as the weather is fantastic. Thank you Nisbet for your kindness and affection. I will of course be returning next year to my home from home.

My Empress found this place, to host our return to the Caribbean, after a 30 year gap, and I can honestly say I doubt if anywhere would have suited us better. We are not, by nature, lovers of carefully manicured hotels, preferring places that look like they have been part of their setting for more than a few decades. Nisbet Plantation has certainly been in its' setting, for several hundred years, since before Nelson walked there, and it has been a resort hotel since the 1950's. The 36 cottages are well spread out, in very spacious grounds, and the place has a restful, unhurried vibe that is extremely relaxing. The cottages are of various sizes and are quietly elegant, rather than of blue riband standard, so if you are going to be unsatisfied with anything less than six star level accommodation, this is not the place, for you. However, if you would enjoy being welcomed, with old-fashioned hospitality, into a team that feels more like a family, this is an unforgettable place, in very beautiful surroundings. This is a fine location, with much to recommend it, but the three things that absolutely set Nisbet apart, are the staff, who are so friendly/a joy to deal with, the food, which is excellent, by any standards, such that we rarely ate out, during our two weeks and the live music, both in the Great House and at the weekly beach barbecues. The island of Nevis, itself, was also rewarding, being quite unspoiled and lush, with monkeys, donkeys, sheep and goats, wandering free. Island high spots, for us, were the snorkelling, with turtles, rays, brightly coloured small fish and flying fish; climbing the mountain, which our son and his girlfriend did, with a guide; the rum tour, with Calvin, who was a mine of local information and, finally, the Botanical Gardens, with their talking parrots, and top class Thai restaurant. To return to the best feature, of our holiday, the staff at Nisbet Plantation, ably marshalled by the General Manager, Tim, and the long-standing trio of top class women, Angella, Violet and Roslyn, who pass on their friendliness and high standards, to the rest. We will be coming back, to see them all !

Classic Caribbean resort with friendly welcoming staff, many returning visitors from US and UK, and a relaxed quiet vibe. Hotel manager and his wife are lovely. Not for you if you like everything hip and brand new but perfect if you want to relax.

Nibet Plantation is a place lost in time. In our everyday lives my family of five, like most people, is busy running from dawn until bedtime. Even our vacations are usually packed with things to do and places to see. If you want that, Nevis can provide plenty to keep you busy for a week. However, if you want to relax and enjoy sweet, local hospitality, Nisbet Plantation is the place to go! My husband, who is usually plugged into his phone or computer all day, didn't even bring his phone. This vacation for him was a time to rejuvenate his mind, body, and soul. I loved my time here and Nisbet completely fulfilled our expectations. Along with all of the glowing aspects, I'm going to try to touch on a couple of points that weren't clear to me before our trip about the resort and the island. Room/ accommodations: Our family of five had a two bedroom cabin, two Deluxe Garden Suites. Each room included a front sitting room. It was wonderful to have the entire cabin for our family. We could see the ocean and had a short walk through the grass and palm trees to get to the beach, pool, or restaurants. I love that there are no TVs in the rooms! I didn' t realize that before we went. My kids brought a deck of cards and frisbees and had old-fashioned fun and used their imaginations. There is a TV in the Great House if there's a ball game or important event that you must see. The cabins are open-air. There are screens to keep out the critters, shutters that allow you to control/ block the sunlight as needed, and air-conditioning units to turn on if you want to be cooler at night. I read an earlier review that the screens were torn. That must have been due to the hurricanes in the fall- ours were all in great shape. We also had a couple of lines of little ants in our bathrooms, but they are not harmful and easy to brush away. One day my son didn't throw away a granola bar wrapper, and ants were on it in a couple of hours. I had my phone and used wifi to check the news daily. The wifi was available throughout the property, but was a little spotty in certain locations. Even in places where the wifi was strong, the bandwidth was sometimes slow. They brought out news papers (US, British, and Canadian) every morning at breakfast, so I really didn't even need that. Property/ Location: Nisbet Plantation was very well-maintained and perfect for our expectations. It is located on the Atlantic side of the island. There was a refreshing breeze on the beach and deep blue water. One part of beach was a little rocky going into the ocean, but there are at least three other places to play in the ocean. My kids found dozens of conch shells and other shells. I spent most of my time on the beach laying in one of the hammocks, smelling the salty air and being lulled by the soft, continuous waves rolling up onto the beach as I read a book. I loved that I wasn't at a busy, noisy resort. Our island experience at Nisbet included seeing a few hummingbirds and sheep/ goats on the property. I expected the free breakfast to be a continental breakfast which would have been fine, but Nisbet had a delicious, full-menu breakfast every day with mouth-watering fresh fruit and yogurt. The juice of the day was different daily and was always delicious. Before going to Nisbet, I didn't realize that we would need to drive to get almost anywhere else on the island. Charlestown, the Four Seasons, many other restaurants, and other beaches are on the other side of the island, the Caribbean side. Each round trip is between USD $30- $70, depending on where you want to go. You can also rent a car for US$50/day plus a one time license fee (I think US$20-25). Renting a car for the week would have been a better transportation choice financially, but the taxi drivers were all a wealth of knowledge about the island. We got to know one pretty well and requested him most of the week. Island: The second day on the island we took an island tour that was great! Our guide, "Hollywood", had a lot of personality. He stopped at old sugar plantations, churches, other resorts with beautiful views, and showed us the island in about 3-4 hours. From that, we were able to plan out the rest of our week. While my husband and one daughter mostly stayed at Nisbet, my other kids and I went snorkeling, hiking, lunch at other restaurants. There was plenty to explore! My family loved this quiet island resort!

Just back from 10 days of beautiful weather. Nisbet is a treasure if you're prepared for a quiet time in a lovely historic plantation with like-minded people and the best service we have had in the Caribbean. We stayed in a deluxe garden cottage - it's well worth upgrading. The cottage was 150yds from the beach/bar in one direction and 150 from the Great House in the other; perfectly placed. What do you do at the Nisbet? 1. walk along the beach in either direction (best part of a mile either way). 2. wait for meal times - the food is remarkably good (breakfast has great yoghurt and fruit and the best porridge in the Caribbean; we usually skipped lunch; afternoon tea at 4 in the Great House; then dinner on the veranda). 3. Go on the Manager's walk at least once - great way to meet people and have a good hike. 4. Hire a car for a day or two to tour the island, visit Golden Rock, Botanical gdns, Charlestown, old sugar plantations, local museums. 5. Sit under a beach umbrella and read a book. 6. go to the Thursday BBQ. 7. walk along the beach again. Nevisians seem to be the most friendly and helpful locals of any Caribbean island. Staff at the Nisbet are almost all great fun - especially Roslyn - and really make the holiday. I suppose I should now delete this review since it will encourage too many visitors (but I won't). We'll be back.
