Four Seasons Nevis Hotel Review – Nevis
Luxurious hideaway with a stunning golf course – Four Seasons Nevis hotel review
Nevis hotel review written by Travel Writer Linda Jackson
If tropical elegance is what you’re looking for in a Caribbean hotel then you’ll discover it the minute you step into the lobby of Four Seasons Nevis. This chic Caribbean luxury resort is tucked away in lush gardens on the unspoilt island of Nevis. Nevis is unbelievably laid back and relaxing, just as I discovered the Four Seasons Nevis to be. This was love at first sight – of the island, and of Four Seasons Nevis. Read more… about the Four Seasons Nevis resort.

Spacious rooms & stunning Four Seasons Nevis residence villa rentals
Checking into my cool and spacious suite, overlooking the tropical gardens with the sea glistening beyond, swaying palms beside the balcony, I can’t help but think I’ve just been handed a slice of heaven on a plate. I soon discover that the Four Seasons Nevis not only has spacious guest rooms and suites on the resort which enjoy ocean views or Nevis peak views, but also absolutely stunning residence villa rentals dotted around the nearby hills, some overlooking the hotel’s fabulous golf course. The Four Seasons Nevis private residence rentals are made up of villas, some duplex-style, and some exquisite contemporary villas you just won’t want to leave. Some four and five bedroom villas are located high on the hills, in lush tropical gardens with their own pool, and offer awesome views of the sea and of the neighbouring island of St Kitts. Staying at Four Seasons Nevis, I soon decide, is absolute paradise… a dream Caribbean vacation and definitely a Caribbean honeymoon hotspot.

Four Seasons Nevis – superb golf course & Spa
Being a golfer, I confess that the Four Seasons Nevis golf course attracted me to the resort – I heard it was top-notch – and I am not disappointed. It’s right on the hotel’s doorstep too. I have the pleasure of checking out the golf course with the hotel’s golf professional. The views are absolutely breath-taking but I’m glad to be in a golf buggy as the golf course is quite steep in places. It’s quite a tricky course to play, especially the back nine – up hill and down dell, and really wicked in places with its long carries and sloping fairways. I blame all bad shots on the distraction of the stunning views.
Golf course checked out, loved it, got the T-shirt… so I then explore other activities available on the resort for guests at Four Seasons Nevis. There are floodlit tennis courts, a fitness centre, and a number of watersports available on long sandy Pinneys’ Beach just a hundred yards away from my suite. There are some lovely cabanas located at the back of the beach, quiet and private; three swimming pools – all with that attractive infinity-edge effect, and a large and luxurious Caribbean Spa complex. It looks my sort of sanctuary, tucked away in the gardens, so I plan to treat my mind, body and soul to a bit of pampering during my stay. It promises to be a touch of seventh heaven.
Before dinner I wander down the beach to a couple of bars sitting on the beach as I’d heard about the popular Caribbean killer cocktails they serve. I like to live dangerously so one ‘killer bee’ and one ‘green flash’ later I discover my mind is not communicating with my mouth. The cooling breeze as I walk back along the beach helps to prepare me for dinner.
Dinner in the Four Seasons Nevis elegant main restaurant – the Coral Grill – is sublime and the wine outstanding. Go for the restaurant’s specialties, they are mouth-wateringly good – try wagyu beef tenderloin carpaccio and the prime rib of beef with green beans and coconut… definitely food to tantalize the taste buds to distraction. There are other super dining options – apart from the Coral Grill, my next favourites are on the deck of Mango, the waterfront restaurant (open air) which boasts 101 rums and spectacular sunsets, and on the Ocean Terrace which offers al fresco dining, Italian style, and wicked Aperol Mojitos.
Nevis adventures and family activities
As well as family activities and adventure activities, there are a couple of unusual Caribbean experiences that the Four Seasons Nevis offer – during turtle nesting season guests can help the Sea Turtle Conservancy team look for nests (July) or, if you fancy slipping into a wetsuit, go diving with a Four Seasons Nevis Chef and a local dive master to catch a spiny lobster for your dinner. (Check out the main Nevis destination page to discover other Nevis adventures and activities available on the island.)
To be honest I didn’t really want to write about the resort – for two reasons. (1)… it just makes me want to buy a time machine to get me back there ASAP and (2) I’m unashamedly selfish, I want to keep this little slice of Caribbean paradise all to myself.
