Just back from Four Seasons Nevis--trip report/ask any questions

Jump to last reply

Just returned from a week on Nevis at the Four Seasons...it was everything we expected and more!!!
THE RESORT: Immaculate and beautiful. Casual elegance best describes the overall feel. In summer at least (low season) we felt very relaxed and comfortable everywhere we went.
THE ROOM: We stayed on the first floor of a cottage away from the main building in a regular oceanfront room. We loved our view and were able to walk 50-100 yards right out to the beach. Rooms on the second floor are all screened in. Rooms closer to the main building look out over the pool and other activities, as opposed to directly to the beach. The decor of the room was top notch, with all marble bathrooms (separate tub and shower, large double sink area), marble tile floors, king size mahogany bed and armoire, sitting area with loveseat & coffee table, another with two chairs and marbel round table.
THE SERVICE: We are not veterans of any other Four Seasons properties, so can't comment on if the service was the usual quality for the 4S. However, it was spectacular and made the vacation most memorable. If you enjoy great service you will love it!! The resort employees are so very friendly, yet non-intrusive. We really didn't feel lkie we were being waited on every minute, but that if we needed anything it would be provided. If you are more of a do it yourself person, this may not be for you.
THE FOOD: We live in a major metropolitan area and frequently go out to dinner at fairly nice restaurants. We thought the food here compared to, if not exceeded, most of the places we eat at home. The Grill Room is more casual and offers breakfast in the morning and grilled selections for dinner. The Dining Room is a bit more formal (no ties or jackets, just long slacks for men) and was fine dining at its best. The food at the Cabana (pool bar)and from room service was equally enjoyable. We did have the MAP plan as part of the Romance package and easily made up for the $85 per day. If you are a light eater, however, you may not make up the difference.
THE ACTIVITIES: When you arrive you are given an Island Daybreak, which tells about all activities that will be happening the week you are there, both on and off the resort property. If you like to be active you will not be dissapointed. We were in a more relaxed mode and took advantage of golf, water sports, island tour, spa services, sailing/snorkeling trip. There were so many more activities which we did not do. Each night they had either a steel drum or regular band playing for several hours. Other than that, there really isn't much nightlife at the resort. Several local places closeby had some livelier entertainment.
ETC: We are a couple, both in our early thirties, who don't have kids. We went in search of a beautiful atmosphere and great service. We found it!! This was our best, most relaxing vacation yet. The Four Seasons does have a family/kids program and there were a lot of kids at the resort. For the most part, however, they were well-behaved and had lots of things to do other than get in our way. The family atmosphere did not detract from our enjoyment in the least. Sorry this trip report got a little long. Please feel free to ask any questions and I will try to answer them as best I can. Enjoy!!
