Montpelier Plantation & Beach, a boutique, luxury hideaway perched 750 feet above the Caribbean Sea on the unspoiled Caribbean island of Nevis, reopened its doors on October 5 following its annual offseason closure.
During its hiatus, Montpelier completed room and property upgrades, including updated bathrooms in Premier Rooms, refreshed furnishings and decor in the common areas, as well as beach maintenance to preserve the beauty and integrity of the property’s private, three-acre cove.
The property also announces experiential activities for guests, such as Yoga Week to be held December 2 to 8 with instructor Patti Coan, an expert yoga and mindfulness teacher and coach. She specializes in helping participants discover the benefits of Samapatti Yoga, a state of equilibrium, or stillness of the mind, rooted in the science and philosophy of Raja Yoga. Yoga Week will focus on postures, breathing, relaxation, concentration and meditation.
Chef Halva Browne and his team have been busy creating unique weekly culinary offerings that incorporate Nevisian island products, herbs, spices and culinary culture along with a nod to other favorite global influences. Sample new dishes include Curried Watermelon Shrimp, Lemon Lobster Fettuccini, Herb Seared Wahoo and Island Spiced Coconut Curried Stew.
Privately-owned and operated by the Hoffman family, Montpelier Plantation & Beach has long been lauded for its rich history and understated elegance. Accommodations include 19 sea-view rooms housed in picturesque bungalows – including 16 rooms and three suites, each with a private terrace. Award-winning dining options include the stylish Restaurant 750, easygoing island dining at Indigo and intimate candlelit experiences in a 300-year-old sugar mill at Mill Privée. Guests can partake in as little or as many activities as they choose by unwinding in the resort’s spa, swimming laps in the 60-foot mosaic pool, spending the day at the private beach or taking an excursion to explore the island.
Montpelier is committed to preserving the ecological beauty of the island with sustainability initiatives that include sourcing produce from local farmers with organic and sustainable practices, growing its own organic herbs, recycling, using organic laundry detergents, implementing water-saving methods for the laundry and gardens, installing an automatic lighting system to save energy during the day, encouraging guests to opt out of daily towel and sheet changes and partnering with Elemis for in-room amenities using natural ingredients.
