Up until a few years ago, St. Kitts and Nevis were the type of
islands that tourists delighted in “discovering.”
Seemingly untouched by modern times, they seemed like the
“old” Caribbean – small, intimate hotels, pristine
beaches, uncluttered roads, with acres of cane fields and rainforests
dominating the landscape. But now two large chain hotels – the
Marriott in St. Kitts and the Four Seasons in Nevis – have
broadened the options. Along with the resorts have come three golf
courses, a new cruise ship port area with duty-free shops and a marine
But you still find hints of the old laid-back islands
here, especially in the delightful plantation inns on both islands.
These small hotels, built around historical buildings and sugar mills,
still have a colonial charm. They are furnished with Caribbean antiques
and emphasize the old-fashioned standards of warm, personalized service.
So it is possible to sample both the charm of the old world and the
activities of the new.

these islands, excerpted from our complete guide to the Leeward Islands,
with complete details on where to stay, where to eat and what to do

stay on St. Kitts, be sure to allow at least one day to visit Nevis,
which is just a short ferry ride or a 10-minute flight away. The main
port city there, Charlestown, is a study in historic preservation. Many
of the ‘skirt-and-blouse’ structures – where the
first level is stone and the second is wood siding – are still
standing and are now being used for offices and stores. The stately old
churches such as St. John’s Anglican and the historic Cottle
Church reinforce the sense of history. In addition, the Nevis Botanical
Gardens offer a beautiful respite from the world, where you can learn
about the unique plants of the Caribbean and enjoy the beauty of
carefully designed displays of orchids, roses, bromeliads and fruit
trees. While the wild vervet monkeys are endemic to both islands, they
are more frequently sighted in Nevis, running across roads (and the golf
course at the Four Seasons) or sitting in trees.
