December 2013. Nevis is a little jewel of loveliness in the Caribbean Sea and Golden Rock is the extra sparkly bit on the top. It is exquisitely pretty. Situated on the mountain above Gingerland it is high enough to be above the mosquito line with a lovely gentle breeze to keep you cool; no need for mosquito nets or air conditioning. The views across the sea to Redonda, Monserrat and Antigua are quite stunning.
In the day eat a lobster sandwich in the courtyard, enjoy a swim in the generous sized pool or go for a mountain hike. Watch out for the monkeys!
In the evening eat in the excellent terrace restaurant.
This hotel is delightfully un-hotelly. It feels exclusive and friendly. The staff are charming. I couldn't recommend it more.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Gentle trade winds and dramatic Caribbean vistas set the stage for a visit to Golden Rock Inn. A former sugar estate dating back to the early 1800's, the property has been thoughtfully restored through the eyes of New York artists Helen and Brice Marden. Set on 100 acres stretching up the slopes of Nevis Peak, this boutique property has eleven guest rooms and private cottages, including the unique Sugar Mill Suite. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens designed by the owners with Miami landscape architect Raymond Jungles, the inn is an escape embraced with birds' songs and the rustling of bamboo. Guest rooms have either king or twin beds, which can be joined together to create a king. The unique Sugar Mill Suite has an oversized king bed upstairs, with full bath, and 2 twins downstairs with full bath. This accomodation is suitable for 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children. ... more less
