“The True Definition of Relaxation”
Reviewed September 10, 2013

My husband and I stayed here 4 nights in early June while celebrating my birthday. What a great gift!!! We do recommend you call the resort and let them arrange a water taxi from St Kitts for your arrival, so you can get there as quickly as possible! We cannot say enough about the wonderful staff and the personalized service they provide during a stay in their beautiful resort. Everyone takes the time to get to know you, your likes and dislikes, and offers all they have without ever being intrusive or overbearing. We ate most of our meals here and were not disappointed, food was well prepared and fresh, innovative and beautifully presented. The portions are also quite generous and we definitely never left any meal hungry! For my birthday, we ate dinner in the Sugar Mill....don't miss this experience, as the setting and ambience is one of a kind! The pool is quiet and relaxing, and Kady's drinks are not to be missed! The beach is beautiful, very private and we did not find the short ride to the beach ( free and provided by the resort) at all inconvenient, enjoyed drinks and the packed lunch while we were there, fortunate to have to share the whole beach with just one other couple!! Our room was large and comfortable with a beautiful view, very clean and very private, air conditioning worked well(and I like it COLD). The resort is well maintained, open and just makes you feel surrounded by peaceful, tropical beauty. Ziggy, the resort dog, is a great breakfast companion and offers a little extra fun to your stay! This is a very special property which we highly recommend, a place to leave your cares and worries behind while you reconnect with the one(s) you love. Cannot wait to return!

I had a Bed and Breakfast plan. The accommodation was excellent. I couldn't fault it. Except as I spent very little time in my room [just for sleeping and washing], it could have been deemed a waste. No, in climates like these you need A/C. Every penny well spent.

The breakfasts were good, and set one up for the day. The food was too good and I definitely put on weight.

Ideally you need your own transport as the beach is 20 minutes drive from the hotel. But it's a beautiful beach, and as I was there in 'low' season, I shared the beach with 5 others!
Problem with the beach being so far from the hotel was that one felt that as one was driving you shouldn't drink alcohol.
Advantage with the hotel being so far from the beach was that the hotel was at a higher elevation and it was therefore cooler. There was a swiming pool at the hotel, so one need not go to the beach to swim. I believe the hotel did provide shared transport to and from the beach at limited times [I had a hire car so didn't avail myself of it].

If you want to be pampered, partake of 'fine dining' this is the place for you.
The one night I was there, I ate there [normally I had my main meal during the day at one of the local eateries], Montpelier has a fine table, but I found such food late at night caused me to sleep poorly. Not for those on a tight budget, but then you only get what you pay for. Would I stay there again? Definitely, yes.

My husband and I celebrated our 15th anniversary with a week stay on Nevis at the beautiful Montpelier Plantation. I can't say enough about how beautiful the grounds are or how amazing everyone was. We loved it so much and hope to return. The staff were friendly and the food was incredible. Nick, Jackie and Noel made our stay special. I can't imagine any place could be nicer!

We stayed at Montpellier Plantation for 7 days in January 2010 and got married there. Initially we chose that place for its beauty and high reviews (prior to that I have never been to Caribbean and therefore I considered all the reviews very carefully).
Arrival: At that time you could fly only to St.Kitts and then take a boat to Nevis. Taxi and boat were arranged for us by Montpellier staff for a fee, which was very convenient. St.Kitts is a beautiful island, and driving along its coast was a great experience.
Room: Due to the fact that we were getting married at Montpellier, we stayed at the Garden Suite. It was an absolutely gorgeous room with the renovated bathroom and a private terrace. we spent a lot of time relaxing on terrace watching the humming birds.
Food: Food was to die for! Every dinner was a delight. In fact, for our reception dinner we didn't even make any special menu requests because we trusted chef so much. And we were not disappointed, our reception dinner was amazing. The only request we made for that dinner was crème brûlée because it was the best we have ever tried.
Breakfasts were fantastic as well, especially freshly baked pastries and scones with soft butter...
People: people were amazing! I have never been in a place were people in general were so welcoming!
Wedding: Marriage license is easy to obtain, but you have to have the affidavit with you. I can't thank Magistrate Clarke enough for performing such beautiful and tasteful ceremony! Reception dinner was at The Mill, and it was the most romantic dinner anyone could imagine.
Beach: Very private with a beautiful view of St.Kitts. Although Montpellier Plantation was full, not that many people went to the beach, therefore it was very quite and relaxing.
Additional comments: Nevis is the best destination for those that are looking for a tranquility and nature. It would not be a perfect place for those who need a night time entertainment, casinos, clubs etc.

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 qualit...

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.
