The Hermitage Plantation is more than one of the oldest Nevis Hotels in operations, in fact more than a hotel, it is one of the oldest wooden houses in the Caribbean, and it is a home to our guests; a home with a very long tradition of welcoming guests to Nevis.
The great house was built around 1700 from the rare Nevis hardwood Lignum Vitae, the house has always been in use, as a hotel, as an artist studio, as the head quarters for the Minister of Agriculture, as a rich planter?s home, and as a poor planter's home. Come feel the years of history and ambiance that makes the Hermitage one of the most special of the St Kitts and Nevis hotels.
Period furnishings, like antique china and oriental rugs, decorate the main house. The hotel bar is the setting for hours of conversation, tea is usually taken on one of the porches and the adjacent library allows quiet reflection, where one can meditate on how much and how little things have changed over time in Nevis. We still have the same traditions of service and hospitality, but now we listen to Bach and Puccini on an Ipod, with wireless internet access in a 300 year old house.
This hotel celebrates a style that is indigenous to Nevis; bright pastel colors, mahogany antiques, four poster beds and private verandahs, surrounded by the tropical sounds of Nevis; hear the trade winds rustle the treetops, the doves coo and the ting bellfrogs ring in the soft evenings. This charming boutique hotel slumbers at 800 feet above sea level at the base of Nevis Peak, the 3000 foot, rainforest covered mountain, with the beautiful beaches of Nevis less than a 15 minute drive away from the hotel.
Like all Nevis hotels we are proud of our uniqueness. We celebrate this history and take great pride in bringing visitors to Nevis. The Hermitage Plantation Inn is pleased to be a member of the St Kitts and Nevis Hotel and Tourism Association.
