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.
It’s like staying in your own country home
Our rooms and cottages are individually decorated in the Caribbean style of four poster canopy beds and porches strung with hammocks.
Herbs and spices are harvested fresh from the garden, farmers bring their produce directly to the kitchen where local cooks create signature West Indian meals.
“If you haven’t been to the Hermitage, you haven’t been to Nevis”
The Hermitage is 800 feet above sea-level at the foot of the rain-forest covered mountain, known as Nevis Peak. Our location gives us the advantage of cool mountain breezes and country-side views
For over three hundred years this house has been a gathering place. The Main House is essentially as it was in the days when Nelson and Hamilton resided on the island.
It comprises less than 2,000 square feet and is in the shape of a cross aligned on the points of the compass.
There are now eleven additional buildings that make up the guests rooms and hotel facilities, all of them built in traditional Nevisian style.
