... and therefor the beech water sports and excursions are cancelled for the day. The sports team hastily write up a list of other entertainment activities for us. The first which we feel we should have a go at is Deck Golf! We are handed a piece of multiply which has been shaped into what can only be described as an ice hockey stick. Instead of a ball we use a flat round piece of wood, a puck. On the lovely deck ...
Sunday, we took the Sea Bridge (a ferry that takes cars) over to Nevis for the day. Even though the boat hadn't even arrived by the scheduled departure time (and hence departed very late), it was good we got there early as the boat filled up and I think there were a few cars that had to wait until the next one.
When we got over to Nevis, we went hunting for food. Most of the restaurants in town seemed to be closed because it ...
This weekend, my parents came in (yay!) and I get to play tour guide. They arrived Friday night, got settled, and then I took them out.
The first stop was happy hour at Cloud 9, which was a little weak as half the club was closed as they expected everybody to be at Music Fest instead of going clubbing.
Next, we went to the top of Timothy Hill to see the view.
For dinner, we went to Spice Mill at the end ...
This week was pretty rainy. I missed the gym a little because of it.
One night, I was not only too lazy to gym it, but also to cook. It was rough day at work AND my internet was pretty intermittent. So, I headed over to Rituals Sushi in Frigate Bay because I hadn't been there. I asked to make sure they had wifi before I sat down, and they just said that I could use ...
... and the falling off. I would
totally do both again.
Again, we returned to the volleyball court, but this time, we joined a bunch of other people. I think they were on their spring break or something, because a few of them were quite drunk. The game was really good until the drunken behavior got a bit out of hand. That was our sign to leave.

Historical Traveler Reviews Nisbet Plantation Beach Club Nevis
Relaxation at its best...
We went down in January 04' and found the resort to be among the very best ever visited. The property, beach, and accomodations are all beautifully maintained and offers a great deal of privacy.
The friendly staff, who treated you like family, and the beautiful beach made a 5-day vacation feel more like 10 days.
If you're looking for a wild time, this is not the place for you.
Nisbet is a great place to go if you want to leave your cares behind; no phones, tv, or clocks.
If your goal is to soak up the sun, relax & sleep on the beach, and enjoy gourmet meals each night, then Nisbet is the place for you.
We love the Nisbet's sister resort "The Reefs" in Bermuda and expected a similar (but not a copy) experience. We were not disappointed.
Nisbet is a lovely place but with two caveats. The sea is not particularly good for swimming (too shallow/rocky) or snorkelling (nothing much to see). And the food is only average. It's not terrible, far from it, but not memorably special. The wine list is short, expensive and mostly big-brand mediocrities. (We had dinner one night at the Monpelier, where the food was of real international standard and showed what Nevis can offer - and how far behind Nisbet is in this respect). But the Nisbet staff are lovely - thoughtful and charming.
A Wonderful Place to Honeymoon!
This past December my husband and I went to the Nisbet Plantation for our honeymoon and what a wonderful trip it was.. After all the excitement & craziness at our wedding, it was the perfect place to go and relax (believe it or not, there are no TV's or Clocks in the room!).. The Staff was superb and make you feel completely at home. The accomodations were great and the food was amazing as well. When we first arrived I was amazed at the amount of return guests but after being at the Nisbet a couple of hours I completely understand why guests come back again and again. We will certainly return to the Nisbet!
Want to feel like a special guest?
Just returned from a delightful week at Nisbet Plantation on the island of Nevis. This is a small wonderful location on the Atlantic side of the island with trade winds to keep you comfortable, and a caring staff ready to grant your every wish. They couldn't have been more accomodating or pleasant. Rooms are in cottages spread over the property, food on the beach and in the plantation house with live music each evening while enjoying "sundowners". Tea is served in the late afternoon. There is plenty to keep you busy, long beach walks, trips into the rainforest, catamaran trips to snorkeling spots. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
The nisbet Plantation Beach Club is the most delightful small luxury hotel with levels of service without equal. We had a first floor suite overlooking the beach bar near the sea, and we would recommend that if you can afford it, you go for this de luxe standard. We understand that our apartment was the one Elton John had stayed in.
We stayed at Nisbet Plantation in Oct 2003 and thoroughly recommend it.
Heaven on Earth!
Nisbet was absolutely wonderful! We just returned at the end of March and we will definitely be returning. The staff is amazing, the grounds are beautifu, you're right on the beach, and the food is BY FAR the best on the island. Skip the Four Seasons...Nisbet is by far the better choice and value!
Put it on Your A-List
Nisbet Plantation is as much an experience as it is a place. There is a casually elegant atmosphere and a sense of things being unhurried, but not slow. The property is beautiful with its Great House and Avenue of the Palms that leads right down to the private beach. But perhaps the best part is the wonderful caring staff. It was pretty hot in August, but it's right on the beach so there were ocean breezes. High season is winter. If you prefer a small luxury hotel with a very personal feel, put Nisbet Plantation on your A list.
Went in January and had a fabulous time.
Great for relaxing in luxurious surroundings.
Lovely beach and grounds, great food and marvellous staff.
Not for those looking for lively, noisy holidays.
Can't wait to return.
