Nevis Island: The Best Kept Secret
Now that it's getting colder and the Fall season is setting in, the beach and pool season become a fading memory. So sad! Not to worry, I have plenty of suggestions to getaway this Winter :) I finally organized my thoughts and photos from my recent trip to the island of Nevis (Knee vis) and wanted to pass along my new found love for this island.
Can you keep a secret? Seriously, it’s just us here, right?
So, I never wanted to go to Nevis. I mean, it’s not that I wanted to avoid Nevis, it’s just that I honestly didn't know anything about Nevis, therefore I never WANTED to go there.
As a romance travel specialist, I was invited to a Romance Symposium to tour Nevis and St. Kitts, stay in some beautiful exclusive resorts and villas (I know, someone’s got to do it!) and attend educational programs with site inspections to learn all about the island, accommodations available and the experiences that Nevis has to offer.
From St. Kitts, it’s just a short ferry ride to the island of Nevis. From the moment I arrived in this tropical paradise, I was transported to another world.
This unspoiled and tranquil utopia is filled with brilliant, lush gardens that provide the backdrop for the most hidden, peaceful and romantic island you’ve never seen. In fact, Nevis has been voted the most romantic island in the Caribbean! The experience was spiritual, almost mystic, yet authentic and natural in a way we seldom experience here at home.
If your idea of “having a view” from the 60th story of a high rise, you won’t find that here. No buildings can be taller than a coconut tree - and nothing can be built above 1000 feet on the mountain. You won’t find fast food here either. The food is local and authentic, providing sustenance worthy of the divine.
Donkeys and goats roam freely. Monkeys swing among the lavish vegetation. There are no crowds, no blaring horns, and no interruptions from trinket peddlers. Just peaceful beaches and fresh, clean air with open blue skies. The locals are warm, friendly and welcoming. Nevis covers just 36 square miles and has a grand total of 406 hotel rooms. There are no casinos and no giant cruise ships. Just a romantic, unpretentious island filled with gifts from nature.
Sugar was once the main source of industry and many of the hotels are built at these historic plantations. There are picturesque churches and elegant estates to visit as you explore the small island.
So I ask, can you keep a secret? Because while I want you to experience this special place and all its charm, we probably shouldn’t share this with everyone. Call me and we can discuss all about the island and which hotels/villas would be ideal for your travel lifestyle. (913) 244-9195
