You guys all know that I am such a massive fan of The Four Seasons brand. So much so that I totally fan girled over Isadore Sharp at a FS event in Toronto last year. He was humble and kind and it made me fall in love with the luxury hotel chain even more. So when I had the opportunity to visit their location in Nevis I shrieked!
Now you have to forgive my ignorance and lack of geography here (I never really did well in school), but I didn’t even know that Nevis even existed! Ugh so shameful I know. But after one google search I was already in love. Nevis is just a hop skip and a boat ride away from St.Kitts (phew I know that one), and is home to a small 11,000 … seriously there are more monkeys on this Island than people.
Anyway, lets get to the cake of the matter (is that even a saying haha), the fabulous property of The Four Seasons Nevis. We arrived in St.Kitts and were greeted by a driver at the airport who took us to a seaport… yes darling it’s only the best as soon as you step off the plane. At the port we boarded a cute little boat that would take us to The Four Seasons property. On the boat we listened to some tunes, drank cold and refreshing beers, all while taking in the incredible landscape. Such an amazing start to our trip.
Just when I thought it couldn’t get more ballin, after our boat ride into Nevis, we hopped off and were greeted by a golf cart and driver… which we would shortly find out was ours for the duration of our trip! The golf cart not the driver haha. Anyway, we pulled up to our home away from home which if you haven’t seen it already, you probably should PAUSE here and go check out my highlights of the most EPIC ROOM TOUR EVER!! It’s under the header Nevis. But I can’t even begin to explain how FREAKING INCREDIBLE this place was… actually let me try.
Yep you read that right, not room, but VILLA! I don’t think in all my 28 years I have ever stayed in a more beautiful place. This was an experience fit for a King and Queen… ha I guess they got the memo about our recent crowning *winky face. You walk into the most beautiful courtyard, basically this was enough for me… leave me by the cute little water feature and I would be content. To the right of the courtyard you have a massive family space, with huge cathedral ceilings and perfectly white interior (instagram friendly). This space houses a tv area, dining room, and humongous kitchen (my whole house could fit in this room). Oh and outside… a bbq with a massive dining table and the most immaculate private pool with an INSANE view of Nevis peak… it was even more magical than I’m describing it… there are literally NO WORDS!
Anyway back to the villa tour, we have a lot to cover. Now to the left of the courtyard is where the magic happens… 3 times!! Ok maybe I should explain this lol. There is not 1 not 2 but 3 freaking bedrooms!! All with their own humongous bathrooms… 2 of which have beautiful outdoor showers too! Oh and I haven’t even mentioned the walk in closet of my dreams. I knew dreams do come true.
The villas are such a great way to do a family trip, housing 6 people if not more. I actually really want to go back with my entire family, I think it would be the most epic trip… and we would have plenty of room to avoid each other if need be (you know how families are).
But if you are planning to go with a smaller group, The Four Seasons Nevis has 179 guest rooms that are all beautifully decorated.
Although, we spent a majority of our time lounging around our villa and doing the keke dance with the golf cart (hope you saw my instastories), we were able to take a peek around the grounds… and they are gorgeous. Boasting three pools, four restaurants, business centre, three lounges, and spa… which I will get back to later, there is definitely plenty to do. I also want to note that The Four Seasons Nevis is super family friendly, with lots of activities for the kids to do, like… a playground, sandcastle building, cooking classes, games and most incredibly sea turtle education!! What?! Yes… how amazing is that!
Leading off of the whole grounds tour, I should mention that The Four Seasons Nevis has their very own 18 hole par-71 (whatever that means lol), golf course nestled in the lush and dramatic tropical landscape. I spoke to a couple of guys that said it was the best golfing experience they have ever had… so I guess it’s good.
I told you I was getting back to this. The spa is surrounded by incredible views of the Nevis Peak and offer everything from waxing to what we did… ‘Spa Under The Stars’. We enjoyed a private spa experience (we had the spa to ourselves! No one else was there). It all started with a the most amazing 60 min Nevisian couples massage, after that we were given a bottle of wine of our choice and were left to enjoy the thermal experience of hot and cold pools all under the twinkling light of the stars. This package also includes a dinner however we had kitchen stocked with food that we had to get through. Once our fingers were wrinkly from the pools we heading back to the changing rooms only to be greeted by a path of beautiful rose petals and flickering candles. Again this is another experience that is too wonderful to even explain properly.
Where-ever we travel it’s important for Sameer and I that we leave our accommodations to explore and experience the country. One of the ways we did this was by going on a tour with the funniest and most informative lady I have ever met… Hillary my girl, who was coincidentally kinda from Leeds! Come on Leeds! We had the best afternoon exploring the gorgeous island of Nevis while learning all that there possibly is to learn. Like cursing in public is against the law! These people are polite y’all.
Another great way to get to know the people is to head to Sunshine’s Bar. Down the beach from The Four Seasons Nevis (it’s literally a 4 min walk) is the cutest and most colourful bar ever, enjoy a ‘Killer Bee’ (this drink is deadly… I found out the hard way) or two amongst locals and tourists alike. The food is delicious, the music is pumping, and the people are the most friendliest people I have EVER met… I even left making a couple more friends, that’s how nice everyone is.
But the best thing is that even after being open for 24 years, Sunshine is still there working his little heart out. Even after serving the likes of John Travolta, Oprah, Meryl Streep and Queen B herself (the list goes on and on), he is still humble… so humble that he even let me take a picture with him. This is a must for your Nevis adventures.
I beg you to go to Nevis, it is a untouched paradise. Like this is literally where celebrities go to escape the world… and escape they do. It’s a beautiful place to go to have a quiet time or have fun with family and friends. The Four Seasons Nevis welcomes anyone and everyone with open arms and smiling faces. You are destined to have the most magical memorable trip. Not only will The Four Seasons Nevis hold a big part of my heart, but it will also be my go to travel destination forever. I am counting down the seconds until I am back there.
