A member of the Relais & Chateaux programme, Montpelier Plantation & Beach is a luxurious hilltop sanctuary where grace and charm abound and guests receive an incredibly warm welcome. Originally an 18th-century sugar plantation, it is now a chic boutique hotel featuring just 18 luxurious guest rooms and suites, where guests can now choose to stay on an all-inclusive basis. It occupies a 60-acre estate in the south of the unspoiled island of Nevis, 750ft above sea level, with views across the countryside to the sea.
The hotel’s open spa is in a soothing setting surrounded by tropical gardens. From an aromatherapy massage to a sea salt skin buff to a deep cleansing facial, the spa menu offers a wide range of packages and treatments. Guests can arrange for treatments in the privacy of their own room or in the tranquil open spa.
The 18-hole championship golf course by Robert Trent Jones is just a 20-minute drive from Montpelier Plantation & Beach, at the Four Seasons Resort.
