At a Glance

Surrounded by sixty acres of gardens, Montpelier Plantation Inn, a former 18th-century sugar plantation, is the only Relais & Châteaux property on Nevis, with nineteen rooms perched 750 feet above its private beach that is six miles away.

Indagare Loves

  • The sixty-foot, mosaic-tile swimming pool
  • The property’s green-conscious, low-impact approach
  • The Little House, a two-bedroom villa that’s a quick walk from the hotel with views of the sea and Nevis Peak


Nevis’ most quaint and quirky hotel options are the many plantation inns, many of which are housed in abandoned sugar and rum estates dating back to the early 1900s. The top choice is the nineteen-room Montpelier Plantation Inn, the only Relais & Châteaux property on the island. Montpelier has a great-looking, wide pool dating back to the 1960s with individually laid mosaic tiles and an old-fashioned diving board.

Rooms at Montpelier are simply furnished, white with a dash of color and have sea views, but no televisions (the latter is non-negotiable, according to gracious owner Tim Hoffman, a fountain of knowledge when it comes to touring Nevis; he is more accepting of Wi-Fi). Room number fifteen overlooks the hotel’s rolling gardens and the sea beyond. The Inn has three restaurants, one of which is set in the atmospheric and historic restored sugar mill. A guest at the table next to us told me he liked Nevis “because it hasn’t been ruined like the rest of the Caribbean; there’s no Hermès or Ralph Lauren here.”

Who Should Stay

Montpelier Plantation Inn is a good fit for travelers who enjoy the Relais & Châteaux standards of service and amenities, require a swimming pool, but do not need to be situated directly on a beach.
