Oualie Beach Resort
Travel Blogs from Nevis
Since the last time I updated my blog, I did a few things worth talking about.
I hiked the peninsula with a friend. It wasn't much of a hike since we pretty much followed the road. There aren't that many places to go on paths and most of the paths either dead end very quickly or return to the road just as quickly (as in less than 1 minute down the path). However, because it is so hilly, it is a decent workout. Also, ...
... a slave owner who had a reputation for treating his slaves better than others treated their slaves, but he still owned slaves. He even brought in missionaries to educate them. Just outside the church is a nice display that explains the history of the building itself as well as the significance during the time that it was in use. Personally, I found it interesting, but if you're not into history or social activism you might ...
... They were good and I expected people to start to get up and dance (as it was fancy party dance-style music), but everybody just sat there watching. I was hungry and was finding it difficult to sit still in my seat, so I rolled.
By the time I left, it was around 10pm, which is not an ideal time to go food hunting in St. Kitts. I called up a friend and he took me to some out-of-the-way podunk stand where some lady still had a ...
... were designed to go forward and not backwards. They didn't really have a lot of power in that direction. Between the issues with the racecars and the fact that there were more cars in line that could fit, they spent a lot of time loading (and unloading, and reloading) all of the cars.
Eventually, we were on our way. The ride itself is pretty short, and we were soon on the other side. The friend I was with seems ...
... Nevis are two beautiful countries that are worth talking about. Definitely worth Blogging about.
St.Kitts being only 68 square miles and Nevis 36 square miles boast a beauty, and magical feeling that will keep you enchanted and desiring to return.

Historical Traveler Reviews Oualie Beach Resort Nevis
Oualie is the Bomb!
Staff was excellent and courteous. After the 3rd day the bartender knew our room and greeted us by name. The rooms spill right out onto the beach, so if you are into lounging on a calm beach with a beautiful view this is the place. The restaurant at the hotel was very good and well priced. Location of the resort allows easy access to the water activities, which are run from the nearby dock, as well as all of the other restaurants which are a short drive. Could not have been happier with the location and accomodations.
We just returned from the Oualie Beach Hotel in Nevis. We spent ten days and it was wonderful. We were looking for something quiet, relaxing with water nearby (within 50 feet of our cottage!) Our first three days we did not move from the hammock. The view from the hammock was the best in the world. You could watch the sunset, look over at St. Kitts watch sail boats, and enjoy the beautiful beach and water. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed our stay. We found that most all of the citzens of Nevis went out of their way to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and felt welcomed and safe.
In August and September 2005 I stayed at the Oualie Beach hotel
Great place and beach
Okay rooms with the necessary amenities. A few ants but no major bugs. Beautiful ocean views and sunsets. Great characters at the bar in the evening that love to chat and tell great tales. Safe.
Jason the chef does a very good job and has a good meal rotation. Terrific buffet BBQ night on Tuesdays.
Check it out.
We stopped at Oualie Beach Resort for 2 nights in a bungalow on the Beach.
Relaxing Beachside Retreat
My Family and I spent 3 nights at this nice beachside resort.
Good- The beach is 30 steps from your cottage.
The resturant is very nice.
Hammocks are everywhere on the property.
VERY QUIET AND RELAXING.
Nice Snorkeling and water equipment.
Bad- Our room smelled, and had ants in it.
No pool, but with that beach not that big of a deal.
During your stay on Nevis, I highly recommend Sunshine's a great beachside bar. Take a walk on the Four Season's beach(beautiful at night). Overall, very nice.
If you want to get away to a beautiful Caribbean island for the sole purpose of truly relaxing, and not spending a fortune like you would at the Four Seasons (just a couple miles down the road or beach-front), Oualie Beach is the place for you. If you are looking for constant activity for you and the kids, look elsewhere. Oualie (pronounced "oo-a-lee"), has pretty, quaint, well-kept duplex and quad-plex (2 story) cottages that are simply but tastefully decorated. Most allow you to walk out literally "onto the beach" area. Other units are just a few more steps away. All units have air conditioning, cable TV and phones, as well as a screened in porches/verandas with lounge chairs for those non-beach days. The beach area has a large number of lounge/chaise type chairs with smattering of hammocks strung up between the palms/coconut trees. The real beach area itself is relatively small (about half the size of the property's water frontage), but adequate. Nevis Water Sports is on the property and offers mountain bikes, scuba and snorkeling equipment, kayaks, wind-sail, Sunfish/sail boats and small catamarans, in additoin to lessons for those sports. A small boat dock there has boats for the diving and boats for charter fishing tours.
I wouldn't give it a second chance
This place was a huge disappointment. Our room was dirty (it always had ants and at times smelled of sewerage). The staff was friendly in a calculated way and prone to laziness. The food was poor: The restaurant received rave reviews in much of the literature we read, but the entire week we were there dining was a below average experience (regardless of the request, all meals were prepared as well-done). On a positive note, it was very private and quiet - I slept well.
Looking forward to going back!
Nice, pretty well maintained, clean rooms with balconies all overlooking the ocean. Beautiful sunsets every night! Service in the restaurant was island speed (on the slow side) but everyone at the hotel was very nice and accomodating. The beach is small but there's a nice lawn with beach chairs just behind the beach. Felt very safe and enjoyed exploring the island. Bring Cutters or Off.
We spent our honeymoon (mid-May, 2000) at Oualie Beach and had a fantastic time. Room was pleasant- very clean and air conditioned with a smallish bathroom and TV, but staying at Oualie is really all about THE BEACH, which was very nice with a gorgeous view of St. Kitts....You literally step from your bungalow onto the sand. I spent 3-4 hours a day swimming and snorkeling in clear blue water, while my husband windsurfed (windsurfers available for rent at the end of the beach- we went off-season and my husband negotiated a weekly deal).
