The Hermitage

A hotel on Nevis

A Unique Island Experience

This is one of the oldest wooden houses in the Caribbean.
It’s a classic country home that has been turned into one of the most unique hotels on Nevis.

It is like stepping into a story book that tells the tale of authentic island living.

The guest rooms, cottages and private villas are spread out over five acres.

The swimming pool, sun terrace and tennis court are in an orchard like setting of fruit trees and palms beneath the backdrop of the rainforest covered mountain.

A full breakfast is included with your rate and served on the dining porch overlooking an orchard like setting of fruit trees.

A welcome rum punch or fresh local juice awaits all our guests.
