St Kitts luxury hotels are popular with vacationers who want to indulge on visits to one of the most stunning Caribbean destinations. There are plenty of Caribbean beach resorts to choose from, the best of which boast casinos and golf courses. However, St Kitts and Nevis luxury accommodation isn’t all about being next to the beach. There is also a selection of St Kitts and Nevis plantation inns that are set back from the beach, and include some of the best 5 star hotels on St Kitts. These inns compensate for their distance from the sea with their old-warm charm and historical elegance.
St Kitts luxury hotels are often part of large resorts that provide guests with everything they need, from restaurants and bars to sports facilities. The St Kitts Marriott Resort is one such resort, and is ranked as one of the top hotels in St Kitts and Nevis. This hotel has 573 rooms and suites, as well as two- or three-bedroom villas with separate dining and living areas, as well as verandas and kitchens. However, it is the hotel’s 18-hole championship golf course and Royal Beach Casino that make the Marriott one of the top St Kitts luxury hotels. Its location on 858 Frigate Bay Road, Frigate Bay Beach, is superb. Frigate Bay is one of the most popular Caribbean beaches, and is part of the route for the St Kitts International Triathlon, one of the major St Kitts events.
If resort living isn’t your thing, try having a look at St Kitts plantation inns. Most of these inns were built by colonials in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and have been turned into St Kitts luxury hotels, combining modern facilities like Wi-Fi and hot tubs with historical traditions such as tea and croquet on the lawn. One of the most famous is Ottley’s Plantation St Kitts, located in Ottley’s Village, at the foot of the island’s dormant volcano, Mt Liamuiga. The inn’s intimate, historical elegance makes it one of the most unique 5 star hotels on St Kitts. Most St Kitts and Nevis luxury accommodation offers great ocean views, but this inn has a unique panoramic view of the dormant volcano, the sea, and the plantation’s gardens.
While there are less accommodation options on Nevis than on its sister island, there are actually fewer 5 star hotels on St Kitts than on Nevis. The most famous Nevis 5 star hotel is the Four Seasons (pictured). Located on Nevis’s loveliest beach, Pinney's Beach, Nevis Four Seasons resort is home to 196 rooms, in a group of buildings set back from the beach, and nestled in tropical foliage. There is a private water sports center on the beach for guests, and an 18-hole golf course that offers golf clinics, as well as leisurely putting.
The Montpelier Plantation Inn and Beach Club is another great 5 star hotel on Nevis. This former sugar plantation is located on the Montpelier Plantation, to the remote south of the island. Its sixteen cottages and one suite come complete with ocean view terraces and modern conveniences, complimenting their colonial decor. Two restaurants, a dining room, bar, swimming pool, and tennis court mean that guests won’t need to ever leave the comfort of the resort. If they wish to take trips out, the hotel will arrange a personalized program for guests including all the best things to do in Nevis. St Kitts and Nevis luxury accommodation doesn’t get much better than this.
