Montpelier Plantation & Beach, one of the Caribbean’s finest family-owned hotels, is situated on an exceptionally beautiful part of Nevis island, at the base of the majestic Nevis Peak, with panoramic views dazzling the Caribbean Sea. Surrounded by 60 acres amidst lush tropical hills and undisturbed nature, there is plenty of space for its visitors to relax and enjoy their vacation. Montpelier’s secluded three-acre beach is only 6 miles away; situated within a quiet cove, and equipped with umbrellas, cabanas and a pavilion for barbecue lunches.
Built around one of the island’s original 18th-century sugar plantations, Montpelier encapsulates a fine combination between history and modern luxury. The charming boutique retreat comprises eighteen distinctively designed rooms and villas, offering stunning views of greenery and the Caribbean Sea. Each room features its own design and unique character, and it is carefully positioned to take advantage of the soothing trade winds.
Dining options at Montpelier include the Restaurant 750, offering unsurpassed alfresco dining, perfected through the use of local ingredients, herbs and spices. The experience is complete with fabulous views overlooking the lights of Charlestown and St. Kitts. Indigo, the poolside restaurant for casual meals is a sensational combination of high-end services and sophisticated style for lunch or dinner with fine wines, rare rums, cigars and cocktails. And the Mill Privee; guests can dine in the hotel’s 300-year-old sugar mill for a memorable, once-in-a-lifetime experience. The original sugar mill is completely intact and the well-trodden floor and hand-cut sound stonewall infuse historic charm and ambiance.
Under Head Chef Halva Brown’s leadership, the Kittitian chef and his team are serving island-inspired dishes using only fresh, locally sourced ingredients. They continue to delight palates with new contemporary Caribbean dishes. The resort also boasts two bars on the property, where guests can enjoy creative cocktails and an extensive wine and rum menu.
Montpelier offers various onsite activities, including a 60-foot mosaic-tiled freshwater swimming pool, tennis, playroom, library, and yoga sessions in the open-air studio. A short walk down the garden reveals the open spa in a tranquil oasis where guests can indulge in a wide range of treatments.
