Nisbet Plantation Beach Club
Ranked #1 of 3 Hotels in New Castle
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 29 November 2013

Previous reviews have said it all. Our first visit to the Caribbean and we made an excellent choice. Nisbet wasn't full so we benefited from upgraded accommodation but we think the accomodation and service would have been just as good if they were fully booked. Wonderful location - grounds and beach but, more importantly, great staff - very friendly and several welcomed us daily by our names. The food was excellent (we're non-meat eaters) and the Thursday BBQ and band great.

As other reviewers have noted, the sea is slightly "rough" due to the Atlantic breeze and the broken coral isn't good for snorkelling, but the breeze helped cool the days, unlike the west coast of Nevis. Beach space was not a problem with plenty of loungers and a great bar service. We booked an island tour with Calvin, the resort taxi driver.

We were impressed by the full dinner service on arrival despite eight of us being two and a half hours late due to weather-related flight problems at Antigua. We also very much appreciated the professionalism and hassle-free manner in which the staff made last minute re-arrangements to get us to St Kitts airport when British Airways made significant changes to our return flight the night before we left.

Relaxing. Would we go again - yes.

Just returned from a fabulous 7 day stay at Nisbet Plantation. All of the other reviews on Trip Advisor do a very good job describing a stay at Nisbet. Starting with the efficiency of the airport transfers to the arrival on this historic property, every aspect of the stay had superb attention to detail.

The personal interaction between the guests and staff is quite unique. The dinner each evening at the Great House was exceptional. The pastry chef's desserts were tasty and artistic. Tea time at 4 PM each day was the best we had ever experienced in our 8 stays in the British Caribbean.

Combine that with wonderful guest cottages, breakfast on the beach and a constant breeze adds up to a memorable trip.

Don't forget to explore Nevis off property as well: Lunch at the Golden Rock Hotel is not to missed; if your adventurous, climb Mt Nevis with Kervin (3230 feet) just be sure to bring some gloves because you will be pulling up on roots and ropes doing the vertical climb; search for monkeys or visit the Nevis Botanical Gardens.

Room Tip: Cocktails are not included in the meal plan so you may want to venture into Charlestown to get some...

A fantastic holiday all thanks to the staff, they are absolutely fantastic. We have travelled a lot to some amazing places but never had a holiday which was made perfect by the staff. The plantation itself was great food very good infact everything was good. Thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: We had the superior cottage which i think was the cheapest but I wouldn't have wanted an upgrade...

Our vegan group of 60 stayed at Nisbet Plantation for 10 days. We all can't say enough about this wonderful little piece of paradise.
We have traveled all over the world and this is hands down the best vegan food we have ever had. The chef's creations were magnificent for breakfast, lunch and dinner. It was culinary art for our taste buds.
The accommodations were perfect, the views were breathtaking, but the staff was what really made our trip special. Each individual staff member was always so happy to see us and make sure we were happy and comfortable. We awoke everyday looking forward to seeing the smiling faces of all of the friends we had made. We left a piece of our hearts with Nesbit Plantation and the wonderful, loving friends that work there.

It's with a heavy heart that I say goodbye to Nisbet Plantation. I can't remember ever feeling so attached and somehow changed by a vacation. The Nevisian people are some of the friendliest, kindest and most genuine people I've ever met while traveling in the Caribbean. This resort is a step back in time when things were a little slower and more personalized, yet offering top of the line accommodations and cuisine. The grounds are spectacular and the windswept Atlantic is a dramatic panorama surrounding you at Nisbet. The staff calls you by name and truly makes you feel like a long lost friend, rather than a mere guest. The service is beyond anything I've ever experienced in more than twenty trips to Mexico and the Caribbean. Come to Nisbet and you will fall in love with this magical place forever!

We have been lucky enough over the years to visit some lovely places around the world BUT without a shadow of a doubt we both agreed that this holiday was the best we have ever had!!
Within a few hours of arriving the wonderful staff know your names, how do they do it!!!.
At other places we have stayed some members of staff shine but here everyone one shines - all day, every day :) Food was wonderful and never had the same thing twice the whole 10 days.
Thank you all once again and can't wait to see you when we return!!!

One word covers our experience: perfect! The room, the food, the setting, all perfect. The staff are extraordinary? We live on St. kitts and wanted a quiet relaxing weekend in which to distress wnd be pampered. Nisbet was perfect
