Montpelier Plantation & Beach

Nevis, St Kitts and Nevis

The hotel

A luxury take on a remote island retreat – with lashings of Nevis heritage thrown in – Montpelier Plantation & Beach lets you experience all the best bits of the Caribbean. It gives you the plantation history, with private candlelit dinners inside its 300 year old sugar mill, which also provides a unique backdrop for the 60 foot mosaic pool. It gives you the Caribbean scenery, thanks to its spot in the tropical foothills of Nevis Peak, with stop-you-in-your-tracks sea views. It gives you the intimate seclusion of staying in a boutique hotel with just 19 guestrooms. It gives you the famous Nevis luxury in its fine dining, art-filled gallery, and five star Relais & Châteaux service. And, even with its hillside hideaway setting, it gives you the beach – with complimentary transport to the hotel’s private beach, hidden in a seductively serene cove.

We had such a fantastic stay at Montpelier! Beautiful grounds, EXTREMELY well kept and just so peaceful to walk through and explore! The BEST staff I have encountered in the Caribbean!! Caring, efficient and just so nice they make you feel like true family!! We were sad to leave and are already planning our return trip. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to just relax!! TIP.....use their shuttle to visit their private beach with bar and you can charge the drinks to your room. Nicely setup for guest!! We were the only ones at the beach bar for multiple days! Enjoy!

Loved everything about Montpelier! Staff was kind and accommodating, the property was beautiful, rooms were clean and spaceful, food was delicious! We only stayed a night and they accommodated our early arrival without any problem. I cannot wait to return!

We were the first clients of the new season which might have been awkward but all the staff put us at ease and made us welcome without any unnatural fuss - they were both friendly and professional.

The buildings and grounds are beautiful and our room was very comfortable. A really good pool meant we didn't go much to the beach. Do think about car-hire while you're there. Taxis are expensive on Nevis and there are lots of sites worth visiting. While the hotel restaurant is excellent it was good to visit some of the island bars and eating places and most need a drive. We will certainly rent a car when we return to Montpelier. Read less

I love the Montpelier Plantation & Beach Hotel so much that I came back to Nevis Island just to stay here and experience it fully. I first came to the Montpelier Nevis for lunch while touring the island (and staying elsewhere). The minute I stepped onto the property, it was love at first sight! This place is GORGEOUS! The rooms are like casitas (little houses with your own porch and plantation grounds). The food served is fresh, healthy, thoughtfully prepared and DELICIOUS. The accommodations are fitting of a diva (like me!) but without the frills. It has more of a boutique-modern ambiance. There is beautiful artwork everywhere (that I want to own myself) and plenty of spots to lounge in. An enormous tree welcomes you at the front gate along with a friendly dog named Cosmo. The service is also top notch. The bartender in the evenings (in the main house) will make you his award winning drink called "Native Sun". It actually won an award on the island as it's inspired by Alexander Hamilton's life. I recommend lunch at Indigo (the restaurant and pool bar) and having dinner at least once at Restaurant 750 (their main restaurant) and if you're up for it, their special 7-course meal in the preserved sugar mill tower which is called Mill Prive. I've visited many of the hotels in Nevis, including the Four Seasons, and feel strongly that Montpelier Nevis is the best place to stay. Whether you're coming for a quiet romantic weekend or on a family getaway, you'll enjoy your time spent here. And don't even get me started on the pool. Check out my pictures for that! Feel free to ask any questions too. Read less

Fantastic small resort. It's located up the side of the Nevis Peak, so while there are some views, it's not exactly overlooking the ocean. But this also allows for a fair bit of privacy as well, and there ARE some views, just perhaps not as dramatic beach or oceans shots as Nisbet plantation (which we stayed at last time).

Fantastic small resort. It's located up the side of the Nevis Peak, so while there are some views, it's not exactly overlooking the ocean. But this also allows for a fair bit of privacy as well, and there ARE some views, just perhaps not as dramatic beach or oceans shots as Nisbet plantation (which we stayed at last time). But the lush grounds definitely have a great deal of charm of their own, and there were some great sunsets! The staff here is absolutely top notch! Very friendly and wonderfully helpful. We were able to arrange most reservations and transportation needs through the front desk concierge, including arranging our rental car- (we accidentally booked online at St.Kitts by mistake then had to find a new rental once we arrived). Montpelier does have private beach access with it's own small bar, but honestly we didn't wind up using it but one day- there was a lot of other things to see and do and the resort pool is great. (The beach is right next door to the Yachtsman Grill, which is also a great spot to get food since that isn't available at the Montpelier beach, though the resort will pack a picnic lunch if you set it up slightly in advance). Thought we'd use the beach more but we wound up exploring the island a lot more or hanging out at the pool. We absolutely would love to stay here again. Read less
