Why Stay At The Hermitage
For those in search of authentic Caribbean charm, this centuries-old plantation property on Nevis is the perfect choice.
The English-speaking Caribbean isle of Nevis dates as far back as Alexander Hamilton, and all of the 18th-century structures on the island are found at The Hermitage Plantation Inn. The main house was built before sugar plantations sprouted in the Caribbean, and over time it's been an artist's studio and the headquarters for the minister of agriculture. Gingerbread latticework, rainbow-colored cottages, sprawling swimming pools, a horse and carriage, and a leafy location on the edge of the rainforest 800 feet above sea level make this one of the region's truly unique hotels. Inside, you'll find handwoven hammocks, mahogany canopy beds, wide-plank floors, antique china, and a traditional library. Bottom line: The property, now run by a friendly Philadelphia family, still has a mix of quirky folksiness and plantation-style luxury that's sure to impress.
A jacket and tie are not required for dinner, but smart casual wear is de rigueur in the evening in lieu of shorts and sandals.
Be sure to explore the island's interior—home to cobblestoned roads and historic brick structures—in addition to the island's well-known beaches.
Arrive at Bradshaw International Airport (SKB), and take the water ferry over to Nevis (about 20 minutes). The hotel offers transfers: $80/person each way to/from the airport.The Hermitage Plantation Inn, Charlestown, Nevis, St Kitts and Nevis
