Montpelier Plantation, Nevis: History Meets Caribbean Luxury

Montpelier Plantation & Beach is a boutique hideaway on the Caribbean island of Nevis, a former British colony steeped in history and known for its vibrant natural beauty.

Nestled amongst 60 acres of lush, tropical hills and built around one of the island’s original 18th-century sugar plantations, Montpelier blends history with modern luxury and promises to be an ideal place to relax and unwind.

Nevis, part of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, has now reopened to international visitors, and for over 50 years Montpelier Plantation has attracted visitors looking for a luxurious destination. This charming resort is a tranquil haven and a great destination for families to reconnect.

Muffin Hoffman, owner of Montpelier, is looking forward to welcoming guests again: “We have each experienced how the past year put things into perspective, how it has shown us what matters in our lives. It reminded us of the importance of kindness and empathy, togetherness and friendship.”

With just 19 rooms, Montpelier promises luxury, space and tranquillity so guests can relax and enjoy themselves at a safe distance from other guests.

Montpelier says that each of its contemporary rooms has a stunning ocean or garden view, and access to a 60-foot mosaic pool, a tennis court, and three very different restaurants; Restaurant 750 for smart alfresco, Indigo for more casual poolside dining and the Mill Privee for a unique experience in the hotel’s 300-year-old sugar mill.

Kittitian head chef Halva Brown and his team serve island-inspired dishes created using fresh, locally sourced ingredients, and there are two bars serving everything you could want, from the hotel’s signature rum punch and tropical cocktails to extensive wine and rum menus.

While Montpelier isn’t a beachfront location, daily complimentary transport is available to its secluded three-acre beach in a quiet cove, only six miles away. The private beach-site is equipped with umbrellas, cabanas, and a pavilion for barbecue lunches.

If you’re in the mood for something more active, staff are available to help curate activities, such as exploring centuries-old ruins, hiking or biking in the rainforest, horseback riding and nature walks, or water-based sports like sailing, windsurfing or scuba diving.

For those who prefer to stay within Montpelier’s boundaries, the mosaic-tiled freshwater swimming pool, tennis courts or library are sure to keep you entertained. You could take part in a yoga session in the open-air studio, or relax at the garden spa, which offers a wide range of treatments.
