Bijou hideaway Montpelier Plantation and Beach on the picture-perfect island of Nevis has reopened to international visitors. Nevis, part of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis, has registered only 12 confirmed cases of the virus to date, with no one admitted to hospital and no deaths.
Family-owned Montpelier rests at the base of majestic Nevis Peak, with panoramic views of the Caribbean Sea. Surrounded by 60 acres and set in lush tropical hills, the hotel provides plenty of space for visitors to relax and enjoy themselves at a safe distance from other guests.
Built around one of the island's original 18th-century sugar plantations, Montpelier artfully blends history with modern luxury. This charming sanctuary has just 19 rooms and villas, offering striking views of palm trees, vibrant bougainvillea and the Caribbean Sea. Each room, carefully positioned to take advantage of soothing trade winds, has its own distinctive design and character.
Dining possibilities at Montpelier include Restaurant 750 for smart alfresco, casual poolside Indigo and the Mill Privee for a once-in-a-lifetime experience in the hotel's 300-year-old sugar mill.
Kittitian head chef Halva Brown and his team serve island-inspired dishes comprised from fresh, locally sourced ingredients. When you feel thirsty, two bars quench cravings from Montpelier’s signature rum punch and tropical cocktails, to extensive wine and rum menus.
Montpelier provides free transport to its secluded three-acre beach in a quiet cove, only six six miles away. The private beach-site is equipped with umbrellas, cabanas and a pavilion for barbecue lunches.
Having accrued many awards, Montpelier maintains a barefoot-chic ethos. The hotel’s motto "live fully" sums up how staff help curate activities, such as exploring centuries-old ruins, hiking or biking in the rainforest, horseback riding, nature walks, sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, and more. Those desiring a quieter vibe can simply appreciate the laid-back feeling of Nevis.
You don’t need to venture beyond Montpelier’s boundaries if you don’t want to, with a 60-foot mosaic-tiled freshwater swimming pool, tennis, playroom, library, yoga sessions in an open-air studio and a garden spa with a wide range of treatments.
For over 50 years, the iconic Montpelier Plantation and Beach has drawn generation after generation for stylish getaways. As multi-generational travel the year's top travel trend, this charming resort is a tranquil haven and the ideal destination where families can reconnect.
Montpelier's owner Muffin Hoffman says: “The past year’s experiences have helped put things into perspective and show us what really matters in our lives. They’ve reminded us of the importance of kindness and empathy, togetherness and friendship. We’re looking forward to welcoming guests back to Montpelier where they can relax and let the rest of the world slip away.”
