Flight at the end of the tunnel: Caribbean boutique hotel reopens with free stay deal

Bijou hotel Montpelier Plantation and Beach, on the idyllic island of Nevis, has reopened to international visitors, and is offering a welcoming comp night deal to celebrate. 

The family-owned hotel is located at the base of Nevis Peak, and offers panoramic views of the Caribbean. It’s surrounded by 60 acres and set in lush tropical hills – plenty of space for visitors to relax at a safe distance from other guests.

Built around one of the island’s original 18th-century sugar plantations, Montpelier blends history with modern luxury. The hotel offers just 19 rooms and villas, each carefully positioned to take advantage of soothing trade winds, and each with its own distinctive design and character.

Montpelier provides free transport to a secluded three-acre beach in a quiet cove, which is six miles away. The private beach is equipped with umbrellas, cabanas, and a pavilion for barbecue lunches.

Montpelier embaces a barefoot-chic ethos. The hotel’s motto ‘live fully’ sums up how staff help curate activities, such as exploring centuries-old ruins, hiking or biking in the rainforest, horseback riding, nature walks, sailing, windsurfing, scuba diving, and more.

Of course, a more relaxed, centred approach is welcome too. There’s a 60-foot mosaic-tiled freshwater swimming pool, tennis, playroom, library, yoga sessions in an open-air studio and a garden spa with a wide range of treatments. Families are encouraged, it’s very much a multi-generational destination.

Fine dining at Montpelier includes Restaurant 750 for smart alfresco, casual poolside Indigo and the Mill Privee for a once-in-a-lifetime experience, set in the hotel’s 300-year-old sugar mill.
