Nestled in the verdant Nevis hills 800 feet above sea level, the Montpelier Plantation is a tropical island retreat intent on soothing all your senses. A great place to get away and escape the chores of modern life while staying immensely comfortable and with the little touches you can expect from a luxury boutique resort.
The views stretch down the lush hillside to the ocean far below and will simply take your breath away. The resort is centred on a holistic approach to relaxation, a philosophy that includes not only the spa, but the cuisine and natural energy of the place, all in an attempt to encourage healthy living and promote a sense of wellbeing. There are a number of packages on offer that tailors to those seeking something extra: from pregnancy spa packages to romance, wedding and honeymoon packages.
This resort enables you to enjoy the privacy of its hillside location, and benefits from the beautiful Montpelier Beach only 15 minutes drive away. An exclusive private cove for guests on one of the best beaches on the island. It has its own bar lounge and a number of cushions to let you relax and enjoy a lazy day or a pre-dinner drink before heading back to the hotel.
Food is all sourced locally and only adds to the healthy message – or if you want to spend the afternoon at the beach then the staff are more than happy to prepare a picnic lunch for you to enjoy by the sea.
The Montpelier Plantation is a haven for relaxation and a great base from which to explore the beautifully untamed island of Nevis.
