A Home 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 Nevis 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.
The Hermitage is a small plantation inn, built around the oldest wooden house in the Caribbean ca. 1670.
The historic buildings and antique furniture tell the story of years of Caribbean Living. The house has survived because of its unique construction from the very rare tropical hardwood, lignum vitae, and because for over 350 years it has always been treated as a home, lived in and loved.

Fruit trees, palm trees, ginger plants and old stone walls surround us.
This is one of the best places on the island for cool mountain breezes, trade winds and birdsongs.
We are 800 feet above sea-level at the foot of the rain-forest covered mountain.
It is a 10 minute drive down to the sea, and 10 minutes backup the hill to the cool mountain air.
We arrange intimate weddings, from simple elopements to family affairs.
We set the stage in our gardens, or in the historic Great House, lending a West Indian flare to that special day. We will take care of all the local arrangements, making the process as simple as it can be for you. Learn more about weddings on Nevis on the blog >
The small and intimate nature of this hotel makes it a wonderful place for family and friends to gather, to sit together over meals, to spend time and make memories.
This is the perfect place to meet up again with friends and family and share the feeling of being in your own country home.
