a unique, boutique, family-run hotel on Nevis
“The Hermitage” is a small hotel on Nevis that is built around the oldest wooden house in the Caribbean, ca. 1670. It tells the story of years of Caribbean living. We offer a taste of island life flavored with the personalities of staff members from neighboring villages. The 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.
We are a unique, boutique, family-run inn, with a mission to share this beautiful island, her people, history and culture, while offering, 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.
We like sitting around on the porches of the Great-House, taking tea in the garden, watching the hummingbirds and the day passing by, changing colours and turning into evening. We like watching the moon rise above the palm trees, listening to the chorus of tropical sounds, dove calls and tree frogs.
We are a hotel that is 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. We don’t.
Come and join us.”
Charming hotel rooms and Gingerbread cottages offer traditional, old world, comforts; large four poster canopy beds and antiques. Onsite amenities include a pool, sun terrace, tennis court, scenic walks, friendly staff and attentive service. Room rates include complimentary breakfast and afternoon tea.
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.
