Fodor's Expert Review The Mount Nevis Hotel
Shaws Rd., Nevis, St. Kitts and Nevis
Editor's Note: This location is reported to be under new ownership and therefore this review may contain inaccuracies.
The scent of citrus from wild trees still fragrances the air at this former lime plantation, a hilltop aerie that strives to blend the intimacy and warmth of a Nevisian inn with the amenities of a contemporary resort. The most recent renovation lightened and brightened the decor. Upscale touches include granite counters, Italian-tile baths, and DVD players; upper floor rooms also have marvelous sloped hardwood cathedral ceilings. Standard rooms can be combined with superior suites (whose sofa beds make them good family buys). There's a well-equipped business center and a gym with inspiring water views. Luxuriate in a poolside hammock, catch the free shuttle to the beach club, or take an invigorating hike to the ruins of Thomas Cottle Church, an unusual historic site.
