We stayed in March for our one week honeymoon and it was such a treat to escape the terrible English winter. We just loved the hotel. It is the epitome of boutique hotel splendour! Service fantastic - really intimate and very quiet around the pool. We visited the other hotels on the island including the four seasons for lunch and the Montpelier really does cater to a different sort of traveller - ones who appreciate the good life, luxury but not necessarily the bling, noisy children et! From the moment of arriving one feels totally relaxed (even despite a 9 hour BA delay from London). The full dinner was quite alot for every evening so worth sussing out early on when you can eat more casually in the pool terrace area and a good night to eat out is the evening they don't serve the full meal as the bbq style food in the pool terrace wasn't quite up to the usual fare. We really enjoyed our island tour organised by the lovely Jacqui, the English lady who acted as concierge. We plan to come back next year!

Room Tip: We upgraded to the garden room but the plantation rooms looked just as good - just really the quality of fit out of the bathrooms and flooring was different.

I spent 5 days at Montpelier last week and was blown away. The inn is on the sprawling grounds of an old sugar plantation. No matter where you look, you see lush vegetation and beautifully kept grounds. The staff was extremely welcoming, knew me and my friend by name and really did a great job of making us feel right at home. The staff requests taxi services, makes dinner and activity reservations and tells you where the best places to 'lime' (hang out).
Make sure you request Kenneth Dore as your guide for the waterfall hike. He expertly led us through the rainforest to hike up 3 waterfalls - a good workout with phenomenal scenery! The rooms are little bungalows with ourdoor patios that overlook the ocean and rainforest. When we arrived, we were greeted with cool wet towels and taken to the pool bar for a rum punch. We then received a tour of the grounds and were led to our room where fresh flowers and a personalized note welcomed our arrival. The food was fresh and expertly prepared, we ate breakfast and/or lunch there every day. A special mention goes to Jackie, one of the concierges, who really went out of her way to take care of us during our stay. I highly recommend this inn, you will love it!

Montpelier Plantation defies categorization - it is a world unto its own and a remarkable restful creation that caters to your needs without ever intruding. The converted former sugar plantation is situated on Nevis - an island that makes up half the twin island nation of St. Kitts and Nevis. Nevis is the little sister - smaller and less developed. Perhaps because it takes longer to reach - the rewards on Nevis are all the sweeter. Muffin (the proprietor) graciously and personally welcomes guests at cocktail hour preceding the evening's meals at Restaurant 750 on the terrace overlooking the western side of the island and the setting sun each night. (The property is 750 feet above sea level with a commanding view of the island and the ocean's horizon.) Three restaurants offer exceptional food across the board from the simple wraps (boxed lunches transported down to the private beach) to the Mill Privée's sumptuous six-course tasting menu - a rare and dramatic venue matched by the exciting and original french inspired cuisine built from many local ingredients as well as fine foods flown in from around the world. The wine list is varied and complete with a range of selections that will satisfy almost any patron. The full breakfast each morning may provide the hardest decision of each new day as the selections are all delicious and original (try the french toast made with nutmeg and honey!)

We spent 7 nights in early May celebrating our 30th anniversary and wanted a unique setting that seemed removed from the world - Montpelier has only a single television in the hotel's library. It was never on the entire time we were there. There are no radios in the rooms and a newspaper is only available by special request. Muffin and her entire staff know exactly what they are doing and what they are offering - a respite from the rest of the world, tranquility, beauty, understated elegance, a smooth vibe, and an utterly unique environment that will leave you astonished at how architecture, music, paintings, and lush plantings can combine to delight the eyes and soothe the mind. The spectacular pool area frames the dormant volcano that dominates the skyline. Often shrouded in clouds at its 3,000 ft summit, Mt. Nevis sits like an ancient god watching over the island - we went with a guide to the summit (a steep and tasking 2-hour climb each way) and were greeted by a peacock at the top (absurd, symbolic, and beautiful)!

We also hired a driver to take us around the entire island (34 square miles) saw the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton, the oldest Protestant church in the Caribbean as well as various other converted plantations. Highly recommend if you have the time.

An absolute highlight is Montpelier's private beach. We spent three separate days at the beach. Beautiful views across the narrows of St. Kitts' dramatic and mountainous spine punctuate the blue and green carib waters. Calm, warm, and a sandy bottom with a gentle surf that rocks you for as long as wish to float in the shallows. Nary a soul passes other than the occasional fishing boat or sail boat. Cabanas offer shade if needed, and lounges are set up by the hotel's beach attendant who unpacks the box lunches and mixes drinks from the full bar he staffs beachside. We had the beach to ourselves for all three days! Sublime.

Our plantation room's windows and private porch looked out at the setting sun. The fourposter bed was comfortable and restful, the bathroom spacious and well equipped. My wife enjoyed a lengthy massage at the spa.

The wait staff, bar staff and even the grounds crew were always attentive, pleasant, genuinely interested in ensuring our happiness and proud of their island and the hotel experience.

I've stayed at Sandy Lane in Barbados, Cambridge Beaches in Bermuda and El Convento in San Juan - all exceptional properties. Montpelier is easily their equal in the areas that matter most - taste, discretion, quiet, cuisine, and comfort. At only 19 rooms and a couple of suites, the property is considerably smaller and for those seeking something truly rare and off the beaten track, Montpelier is well worth the journey.

We met a departing guest upon our arrival and he looked at us wistfully and said, "you're so lucky. People are always seeking some place "out there" where they think they'll find happiness. Well "there" is right here - you've found it." A week later when we left, we couldn't have agreed more.

Dinner in the Mill Privee was exceptional with one major glitch. We were staying at the Four Seasons and intended to drive ourselves up in our rental but the concierge recommended we take a cab and I am very glad we did. There are no street signs to be found on Nevis and the many twists and turns to get up to the Plantation would have left us very lost. When we arrived we were treated to some delicious nibbles before heading up to the Mill. The atmosphere of the hotel and the Mill is truly once in a lifetime - romantic, serene. The food was excellent, every course was delicious and very fresh. The staff was incredibly welcoming and thoughtful during the meal without being intrusive. One of the waiters in particular, Eddison, was the nicest we met during our entire trip.

We enjoyed every element of our meal except for the corporate group that arrived about an hour and a half into our dinner. When we originally arrived it was just us in the Mill, then another couple joined us but we couldn't hear each other. Then a group of about 14 joined us. A woman from the group approached us and said something along the lines of "and you thought you were going to have a romantic evening" with a laugh. They were extremely loud, shouting and laughing as if it was a beach bar. My husband and I could no longer hear each other without shouting and we left the mill early to enjoy our coffee back in the main house. I felt bad for the other couple in the Mill as they still had a few courses to go. Make sure when reserving for dinner to ask if there is a corporate group coming in. Their presence ruined what was initially a truly wonderful evening.

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on Trip Advisor. At this point nothing I can say will be able to make up for the lost dining experience at Montpelier. After reading your comments we have made immediate changes to our reservation policies to be assured this will not happen to another guest. I would also like to extend an invitation to dine with us as my guest if you return to Nevis, in order to offer you the dining experience you should have had. Timothy Hoffman, Owner

We just got back from spending 7 wonderful days at the Montpelier Plantation in Nevis. The entire staff is extremely welcoming, the food was outstanding and the pool area is very inviting. If you are seeking a relaxing holiday in peaceful surroundings you will find it at the Montpelier Plantation in Nevis.
