We were in St. Kitt's Nevis in July and the weather is hot and humid, but at Peak Heaven, the wind blows, the balmy mixes with the breeze and the shade and it is sublime. In addition to being an absolutely beautiful spot, with interesting gardens and design and wonderfully hand crafted elements throughout including games for the children, the views are spectacular and peaceful... but the icing on the cake is that the service is incredibly hospitable and the food is delicious. Truly, the food was outstanding and such a treat out in the open air, overlooking the Caribbean and the Island of St. Kitts, the place was amazing. Goats came through while we were there and we've heard that sometimes you see monkeys! It's amazing that you look down to the sea and then look up into the jungle-like mountain top surrounded by clouds and all of the while feel at home in this little bit of Heaven! The experience was so intimate, wonderful wonderful! You must go!

This was by far our best experience on Nevis! We wanted to go hiking to the top of the volcano...and they gave us friendly service and found an awesome guide for us! (They also only charged about half as much as other tour companies.)

It is a family-run business and they were by far the FRIENDLIEST people we met on the island! GREAT PEOPLE!!

They also have a restaurant, but we were far too tired after our hike to go back for lunch/dinner.

The only drawback is that the road to get to Peak Heaven is VERY STEEP and NARROW (from an American stand-point)...but they have PLENTY of signs to guide you there.

DO NOT MISS PEAK HEAVEN IF YOU ARE ON NEVIS!!

This hidden place up a track is hard to find and impossible to miss!! It leads up the mountain and has a garden and cafe which are both lovely and surprising, the 'owner is kind and thoughtful, the ambience is a throwback to the island as it once was.
Closed on Sunday and Monday , which is a shame .

We climbed last week on vacation, first time to Nevis (2 couples, 40ish years old). After reading the reviews we were unsure whether to use a guide and just how hard it would be. We took a guide (which was worth it) and found it a bit harder than expected. The view at the to is amazing, the trail is very narrow and filled with roots, ruts and rocks. Quite steep in some places where they ahve ropes attached to help. You end up on your butt at times, your shoes will be caked in mud as well as your hands from ropes and roots. Need to be in reasonable shape, it takes 2+ hours up and back down and you will be sore the next day. A great 1/2 day experience.

This is a place that just needs a bit more - effort. It is run by a wonderful family that just need to put a bit more into it. The first thing you come across is a small childrens play area. At the top there is a small museum that really needs a few more things in it, also a tiny shop that needs the same. A little café sits right on the very top overlooking one of the best views on Nevis, it was worth going just to sit and have a drink to look out over the island. It serves food but we didn’t have time to try it. These people go up there every day to prepare food so I do hope someone one day has time to try it! Watch out for a very small black sign from the main road just by the police station.
What it really needs is visitors so do go! (There is a charge)
