Full accommodation information

Set in an 18th-century sugar plantation, 750 feet up in the hills of Nevis, this chic resort has been lovingly restored in keeping with its colonial heritage.

A member of the distinguished Relais & Châteaux, this sanctuary of beauty, far from the stresses of modern life, enjoys an exceptionally warm, friendly and welcoming ambience with children aged eight years and over welcome.

Service is personable and discreet, with the staff taking great pride in making sure that your stay is everything you would want it to be. Romantic and intimate dining can be enjoyed at Mill Privée, a 300-year-old sugar mill, converted into the only restaurant of its kind in the world.

Or you may prefer to stroll through the gardens to the Great Room before sampling the delicious cuisine in a relaxed al fresco setting or sample the casual tapas menu poolside, at Indigos - a cool, chic restaurant with an informal laid-back atmosphere.

Activities at the resort are designed to help make your leisure time creative and your quiet time productive, with lazy days being spent by the freshwater pool or enjoying the hotel's nearby private beach and beach bar.

19 simple yet comfortable rooms and suites are housed in 8 pretty cottages - all with sea views and with private beach just a short ride away.
