Oualie Beach

Nevis, St Kitts and Nevis

The hotel

Life at Oualie Beach Resort is lived by the sands – and it’s little wonder given this intimate retreat is just 100 feet from a quintessentially Caribbean coconut-fringed beach – one with that all-important accessory, a PADI Five Star Dive Centre. Whether you’re dining, drinking cocktails, or simply drifting off to sleep in your Nevis-style gingerbread cottage, you’ll be doing it mere moments from the lapping waves of the Caribbean. A little collection of cottages dotted around beachfront gardens, the resort has just 32 rooms, giving it an exclusive yet informal feel. And there’s nothing more casual than a spot of beachfront dining, with the veranda at Oualie Beach Restaurant a serene spot for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. It’s also the backdrop for party nights, with cocktail receptions, island buffets and barbecues, and live music events all regular attractions here.

Evening meal was ok, but, breakfast was poor. Read less

Worth the $10 usd roundtrip cab/pp if you share a cab. The group decided to head to a farther beach from the port since the closest beach is more crowded.

Worth the $10 usd roundtrip cab/pp if you share a cab. The group decided to head to a farther beach from the port since the closest beach is more crowded. The driver suggested this place and it didn't disappoint. Beautiful beach and cheap cold drinks as well! Walked to the other beach which is called lovers beach and it's more beautiful, water and sand is better than oualie. Although you shouldn't come to lovers by yourself. If you dont want to spend 10bucks to this place then you dont have to but if you wanna get away from the crowd then it's worth it. Read less

The property in itself is a beautiful beach front property, with cottage decor. The receptionist was awesome, what was lacking in decor she certainly made up for. The rooms were very minimalist in decor. The telephone booking was very different form the check-in. For the price you are not even offered a continental breakfast!

Some furniture was in need of a little loving care. The staff were very friendly and attentive. The beach and location are special, completely uncrowded; with the sea being shallow for a long way out. The green monkeys were a treat to watch. Would always come back for a few days; I really needed to be there longer! Read less
