The Mount Nevis

Nevis, St Kitts and Nevis

The hotel

Like staying with friends (if you have friends with an eye-poppingly gorgeous home in the Caribbean that is), Mount Nevis pampers you with intimacy, home-grown organic food, a glorious garden pool, and arguably the best views of St Kitts across the Caribbean Sea, thanks to its hillside setting near Newcastle. Boutique in size and feel, its 50 rooms and suites sit in pavilions within the 17 acre Round Hill Estate, a lime plantation dating back to the 1800s. Its grounds also hold hammocks, those show-stopping views, and a kitchen garden that feeds its Bella Vista Restaurant – where, as the name suggests, the delicious produce vies for attention with stunning views from the veranda. And, being your friends in Nevis, your hosts will drive you to and from one of the island’s most beautiful sandy shores each day.

This is a place you don’t want to miss! Magnificent accommodations with a beautiful pool overlooking the ocean. A lovely place to read, nap, eat, drink and soak up the peaceful beauty. First time there but not the last. I highly recommend this lovely resort. I cannot wait to return!

We traveled from NYC to Nevis recently and can unequivocally say we had one of our best hotel experiences at the Mount Nevis Hotel! It captured everything a person would want from a hotel - great views, personalized friendly service, excellent food and a large lap pool. Everything was taken care of for us, from our pick-up at the St.Kitts airport and transportation to the hotel, to having our car rental waiting for us at the hotel upon arrival. Our accommodations were extremely comfortable which included a stunning ocean and mountain view overlooking beautifully manicured hotel grounds. The food was divine and personalized to our tastes and dietary needs! I enjoyed starting the day with laps in the pool, touring the island, visiting nearby beaches, then cocktails and dinner back at the hotel or a nearby restaurant. Nevis is a special island. We will definitely return and stay at the Mount Nevis Hotel! Read less

I only wish I planned to stay longer at this little place called paradise. The rooms are quiet and spacious with a wonderful view of the grounds and mountains in the distance. The pool was absolutely wonderful at night, after the sun set, and the tree frogs chirping kept us company. Be sure to wander down the road to see the historic church ruin.… Read more

The hotel is secluded and ideal for those who want to get away. The rooms are clean and the amenities good including the WIFI. The shortcomings is that there is no lotion and the front desk closes @ 10:00 pm and there is no facility to buy snacks or toiletries the property is ideal for a family reunion.
