We have now visited Nevis three times and we recently stayed at the Four Seasons Nevis. Since our last stay Nevis was hit pretty hard by a Hurricane, causing the property to close for a time, but it has since re-opened and is even better than before.
While there are some flights that go into Nevis, it is hard to connect so most people fly to St. Kitts, then take the Four Seasons Boat transfer from there. Once on the boat you will be greeted with drinks and a warm towel! The ride is pleasant and when you arrive at the dock of the Four Seasons you are welcomed and escorted directly to your room...say goodbye to checking in at the desk!
I loved our room. It was very roomy with a sitting area and a wonderful big bathroom. We had a nice porch outside with a table and a lounge chair, so we could eat breakfast and relax outside. They even had real cream for our coffee in the room. But the most important part was that the bed was very comfortable!
We took full advantage of the hammocks that are scattered around the beautiful grounds. There is nothing like breathing in the ocean air as you relax in a hammock! To me, what differentiates Four Seasons from other luxury properties is the staff's attention to detail. From getting to know you, to assisting you with whatever you need, they were always there. One thing that really amazed me was that if a hotel employee was passing you in their motorized cart while you were walking, they would stop so there was quiet for you to pass. They really pulled out all the stops to make sure it was full relaxation all the time.
We spent a lot of time at the spa. With individual little cottage rooms for your massage, a quiet pool and a waterfall hot tub, we felt so pampered. The treatments were wonderful and so
relaxing, but it was also great to spend time at even when we were not enjoying a treatment!
For the active guests, they had numerous tennis courts, and a beautiful golf course with stunning vies and monkeys in the trees! They also offer a very reasonably-priced golf outing.
Though we spent most of our time at the gorgeous beach, the property also has a few different pools, one of which is a quiet adults-only pool. Feeling hot? The staff comes by periodically with fruit and sprays you with Evian mist to keep you cool!. There is a raft that you can swim out to and the water is crystal clear. I could stay out there all day with a book and be happy.
There are a few restaurant options right at the hotel, as well as some great restaurants on the island.
And after dinner, make sure to visit Sunshines Beach Bar and grill to try their famous rum punch drink called "The Killer Bee". But watch out: If you have more than one, you may not make it back to the hotel! We had a lot of fun here, meeting interesting people at their big bon fire, including a group of kids that were on the semester at sea program.
If you are traveling with your kids they have a wonderful kids program at the Four Seasons. This is a great vacation for the whole family or for a romantic getaway!
