Nevis Trip Report 4/20/08 + Photos

Thanks to everyone who guided us to the special island of Nevis. We were not prepared for how quickly and how hard we would fall for this special place. We were amazed at how under-developed it is which was very refreshing and glimpses of monkees were all around.

TRIP:
We stayed at Nisbet Plantation and would recommend this charming resort. It is situated on the breezy side of the island, which was much welcomed with the sun being so direct. The upper villas were booked thus we stayed in one of the luxury cottage suites "Jessups" which was actually the closest cottage suite to the beach with a full water-front view. The furnishings were colorful and beach-friendly with a granite double-sink in the bathroom.
The pool was large and situated right off the beach. The staff was very friendly and attentive.

The included breakfast was fantastic and consisted of a buffet of items in addition to the option of ordering off the tasty menu.
We requested the BP plan which included a daily breakfast yet freed us from the all-inclusive lunch and dinner so that we could explore the other restaurants the island had to offer. We were not disappointed as our first dinner at the ever-popular "Bananas" was fantastic and a must-do on this island. Winding up the mountain to that view was breathtaking. Another phenomenal meal was at the Montpelier Inn. I can't say enough about this special place or meal. We normally prefer staying on the beach, however after visiting Montpelier we could absolutely return and stay up on the mountain. It was one of the highlights of the trip. No detail goes unnoticed, right down to the silver square Figi water coasters!
"Mangos" was another lovely spot for a nice lunch and dinner- we tried both and were very pleased. Dinner was especially nice situated on the ocean with the twinkling lights after being up in the mountain for our other meals.
One of the best lunches we had was the Lobster Roll at "Chevy's" on the beach. Experiencing a sunset with a Killer Bee rum punch in hand is also a must next door to Chevy's.
We were thrilled to see how colorful the coral reef is on our snorkel trip via Catamaran that left from the Four Seasons. We were so glad that we rented a car while on Nevis as we had the freedom to explore all of the nooks and crannies, winding up the mountain for some cooler air and monkey-sighting was one of the highlights of our trip.

All in all, Nevis was a fantastic discovery for us and a remote and special island that we look forward to returning to soon. For some of our photos, click below:
