Nevis and Nisbet Plantation

Jump to last reply

Hi,

Lost my original post, so I'm trying again.


Just got back yesterday from a one-week honeymoon at the Nisbet Plantation on Nevis. We were married on St. Thomas at the Federick Lutheran church (my wife is from STT) and had a wonderful reception at the Old Stone Farmhouse. We spent the night at the Ritz Carlton and flew the next day to St. Kitts (stayed at the Ocean Terrace Inn) and took the ferry to Nevis the next day. I would be happy to answer any questions about the places we went.

I'll say a few words about Nevis and Nisbet, since that's the place where we where the longest. Nisbet had the kind of friendly, wonderful service that can be hard to find. We were on the Romance Package, which included two days of rental car, massages for each of us, breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner each night, a snorkel trip to St. Kitts, and a gourmet picnic lunch.

Plusses: the rooms were simple but elegantly furnished; the staff were amazingly friendly and helpful (the resort was less than half full while were there); the five-course dinner each night was superb and there was a full breakfast each morning; the island is scenic and easy to get around; there were some nice beaches on the island (Pinney's Beach and Oalie Beach). The Romance package is affordable. We never met an unfriendly person on the island (can't say that about other parts of the Carib. We liked the Golden Rock rainforest trail (saw the vervet monkeys), the botanical gardens, the other plantation inns, Pinney's Beach and Sunshine's, Oalie Beach.

Minuses: the Nisbet beach is not that great by Caribbean standards. It was OK the first few days, and then it got pretty windy. Snorkelling there is also just OK (but much better on St. Kitts). We went to other beaches while were there with the rental car, and since we spend a lot of time on the USVI, we can see that beautiful turquoise water elsewhere -- you don't really find it on Nevis. Nisbet is also by the Newcastle Airport, so you will notice about six-eight flights/day overhead. Charlestown is not impressive, no shopping to speak of.

***
The Four Seasons is also lovely, if more expensive and slightly more generic in feel. We didn't see the rooms, but the grounds and the pool and beach area were beautifully-maintained and the staff with whom we interacted were extremely nice and professional.

Nevis is a great place for a laid-back, relaxing honeymoon or vacation. Let me know if I can help answer any questions.

Jim
