- Address & Map
The Four Seasons Resort Nevis is an intimate retreat in a low key destination reputed for its romantic settings, unspoiled environment and rich history and culture. In the northern Leeward Islands, the confederation of St. Kitts & Nevis is formed by two neighbouring islands separated by a shallow two-mile channel.
On the smaller island of Nevis, just 36 square miles, the Five Diamond Award Four Seasons Resort combines the best of luxury and leisure with beachfront accommodation, exotic cuisine, acclaimed spa, international tennis centre, a wide range of watersports. Further facilities at resort include a Fitness Centre, Tennis Centre, half-mile sandy beach with a range of water sports, charters, cruises and deep sea fishing, and a championship golf course.
This R.T. Jones’ course is arguably the best in the whole Caribbean. The fairways extend inland from the shore into the lush foothills of Nevis Peak, providing dramatic views of the Caribbean and the neighbouring island of St. Kitts. The resort runs a ferry shuttle direct from its dock to St. Kitts, a short and scenic crossing away. On the larger island there is shopping, a casino, and another very impressive waterfront course, The Royal St. Kitts Golf Club, by top Canadian designer Thomas McBroom.
Four Seasons Resort Nevis
Accommodation comprises nearly two hundred spacious rooms and suites distributed between twelve gingerbread cottages canopied by swaying palm trees, just steps away from the shore and the scenic golf course.
The spacious, airy guestrooms combine the relaxed ease of the West Indies with hints of its colonial past, displaying soothing Caribbean colour hues, mahogany furniture, woven rugs, lush fabrics and local artwork. All feature an outdoor veranda furnished with teak chairs, loungers and tables ideal for breakfast, private in-room dinner or to laze away the day.
For atmospheric dining, the cosy Mango Restaurant is right on the shore and a short stroll from the 18th hole. It offers al fresco dining with a view of St. Kitts across the channel and an inventive menu of West Indian cuisine. Further culinary venues at the resort include The Dining Room open air restaurant, featuring regional cuisine with French and Asian influences, Neve casual breakfast and dinner restaurant, The Pool Cabana seafood bar and the intimate plantation-style Library Bar.
The Four Seasons Spa call to mind this bygone era and includes an open air stone jacuzzi resembling a sugar mill ruin, low rise gingerbread cottages and a copper water fountain fashioned from an antique basin once used in sugar production. A secluded enclave within the resort, the spa captures the gentle spirit of Nevis, with a seamless indoor- to-outdoor setting that provides a complete sensory intake of the soothing surroundings.

Four Seasons Golf Nevis
• Championship Course
Robert Trent Jones Jr. (1991) 18 holes - 6,682 yds - Par 70
More than two years after a hurricane ravaged the small island of Nevis, the golf course at the Four Seasons Caribbean flagship luxury resort has finally re-opened. This R.T. Jones’ course is arguably the best in the whole Caribbean. The fairways extend inland from the shore into the lush foothills of Nevis Peak, providing dramatic views of the Caribbean and the neighbouring island of St. Kitts.
While usually hilly settings make for visual drama, they rarely make for great golf courses, but this layout is an exception to that rule, an idyllic setting with breathtaking views and the drama of elevation changes, but a a very solid and fully playable design. It is both a beautiful course and an excellent round of golf at the same time. Except for three lakes affecting play on four holes in the lower reaches of the course, the major hazards are the strategic bunkering, accented slopes and the brisk north-eastern trade winds

Royal St. Kitts Golf Club
Frigate Bay, St. Kitts island
• Championship Course
Peter Thompson (1976) + Thomas McBroom (2004) 18 holes . 6,859 yds - Par 71
The Royal St. Kitts Golf Club is a spectacular golf course, originally opened in 1976 and recently renovated. After closing for renovations in the spring of 2002, the championship course reopened in 2004. Now under Marriott Golf Management, Royal St. Kitts is one of the best conditioned and most scenic golf courses in the Caribbean. The magnificent layout has 125 irrigated acres of lush grass and allows golfers to play two full holes on the Caribbean Sea and three complete holes on the Atlantic Ocean. The redesign was done by reputed architect Thomas McBroom of Toronto, Canada. With three other sets of tees it is fun for every level of player. This challenging layout boasts water hazards on 10 holes, 80 bunkers and a multitude of coconut palm trees along the Atlantic Ocean.
St. Kitts & Nevis
The twin-island nation of St Kitts and Nevis IS situated in the Leeward Islands of the eastern Caribbean - the larger St Kitts is separated from its southern counterpart Nevis by a two-mile channel called The Narrows.
At first glance, these small, sleepy islands appear to be forgotten in time and convey nothing of their former prosperity and turbulent history. From their wealthy position as the most famous sugar colony in the Caribbean during the 18th century they became the centre of conflict, as European powers fought for control of the islands, and the surrounding waters were an irresistible attraction for pirates who lay in wait for the merchant ships.
St Kitts and Nevis have become the tourist pearls of the Caribbean, valued today much more as a tropical paradise than a major sugar producer, with crystal clear waters, sandy beaches and a natural splendour of lush green forest and peaks. Together with a diverse range of activities, historical sites, and the charm of their two capital harbour towns, the volcanic islands are a seductive blend of colour, sunshine and luxurious relaxation.
Officially known as St Christopher - named by Christopher Columbus, it wasn't until it became an English colony in 1623 that its name was shortened to St Kitts. Lush and verdant, St Kitts is the larger and more developped of the two islands. St Kitts remains a naturally unassuming, uncrowded destination that is a true gem in the much often over crowded and exploited Caribbean. Dominated by an extinct volcano 3,792ft high (1,156m), the island is covered iwith lush tropical vegetation and sugar cane plantation, and ringed by sandy coves and coral reefs.
Aside its splendid natural surroundings, St. Kits has a rich heritage of architecture, such as the impressive fortress at Brimstone Hill, which was constructed to defend the wealth of the island: Sugar. During the prosperous days of the sugar industry, St Kitts has no less than 68 sugar plantations, but with the abolition of slavery and the production of beet sugar in Europe, the wealth finally came to an end by the end of the 18th C, to be replaced by tourism during the second half of the 20th C.
Dominated by its dormant volcano over 3,232ft high, Nevis early drew visitors from across the Atlantic lured by its first tourist attraction, the healing volcanic springs. The island was discovered by Christopher Columbs in 1493 and he named it Nevis, for the island's cloud-capped volcanic peak reminded him of snow -”nieves” in Spanish. About 11 miles llong and a 8 miles large, Nevis is a wonderfully sleepy island, with no other large resorts, just a handful of upscale inns, several of them converted from former sugar plantation and offering a perfect dinner alternative for those who want to escape from the cocoon of the Four Seasons from time to time. For those craving more variety and cosmopolitan feel, the resort runs a ferry shuttle direct from its dock to neighboring St. Kitts, a short and stunning ride. On the larger island there is shopping, a casino, and another very impressive waterfront course, The Royal St. Kitts Golf Club, by top Canadian designer Thomas McBroom.
