Nevis, West Indies
Four Seasons Resort Nevis
Jewel of Paradise
What it is
Reimagined and revitalized, but rooted in history and heritage, this beachfront oasis offers a captivating combination of adventure, discovery, serenity and recreation.
What it isn't
Boutique. With 189 rooms and suites plus 50 uniquely designed residences ranging from one to seven bedrooms, you won’t feel like the only guests—though you will feel like the most adored.
What we think
It’s one of life’s great ironies: In a place so perfect the temperature nearly always hovers at a sun-kissed 79 degrees, sunbathing will be the last thing on your list. At the Four Seasons Resort Nevis, the activities on offer are more numerous and beguiling than any you could find back home—including learning about all the uses and benefits of the coconut tree to taking an island tour to learn about the history of the island, especially Nevis famous native son, Alexander Hamilton who was born on this beautiful island. On-property adventures are just as covetable; golfers won’t want to miss playing 18 holes on the Robert Trent Jones II course, where the adjacent shimmering sea can be more distracting than the sand traps. Tasteful guest rooms awash in creams and purples put the focus on the view: plush grass tumbling down to the turquoise water just beyond your door.
You're here because
The Kids for All Seasons program ensures your children receive the Blue Ivy treatment—they’ll do everything from identifying nesting sea turtles to dipping into nearby volcanic hot springs.
You’ve found something you like even better than rum punch—and that’s getting rubbed down with a coconut, rum and brown sugar scrub in the resort’s Garden of Eden inspired Spa. You love it so much you’re coming back with your spouse tonight for Spa Under the Stars when they shut the whole area down for your private use.
