a unique, family-run, boutique, Nevis hotel

“The Hermitage” is a unique boutique Nevis hotel that is built around the oldest wooden house in the Caribbean, ca. 1670. It tells the story of years of Caribbean living and offers a taste of island life flavored with the personalities of staff members from neighboring villages. Historic buildings, antique furniture and tropical gardens create a charming and relaxed atmosphere. The strong sense of authentic Nevisian life sets Hermitage apart from other hotels on Nevis and in the Caribbean.

A small family-run inn, with a mission to share this beautiful island, her people, history and culture, The Hermitage offers, with a pinch of quirk, gracious hospitality in an elegant, unpretentious and charming setting. We maximize the use of Nevis foods, produce, traditions and history to the benefit of our guests and our community.

Join us for rum punches on the porches of the Great-House, take tea in the garden, watch the hummingbirds and the day passing by, changing colours and turning into evening. Spy the moon rise above the palm trees, listen to the chorus of tropical sounds, dove calls and tree frogs.

A hotel made special by the care and attention our family has put into making our guests feel welcome and relaxed. Being here is like staying at your own country home in the Caribbean. We will do everything we can to make sure that you have a memorable Nevis experience and a fantastic holiday.


“You may have a lot of work to do and a busy schedule.

Come and join us.”

More About Rooms and Rates


Herbs and spices are harvested fresh from the garden, farmers bring their produce directly to the kitchen, and the fish is delivered dripping wet, fresh from the sea. The kitchen creates dishes that become known on Nevis as Hermitage specialities.
