Four Seasons in Nevis is everything a couple should expect from an AAA Five-Diamond resort. The rooms are inviting, the vistas are picture-postcard worthy, the food the finest we’ve had in the Caribbean and the spa perhaps the best anywhere. It’s easy to get spoiled at Four Seasons.
Staff at Four Seasons more than matches the resort’s amenities. Here is one of many examples of the attentiveness that comes from what seems not as practiced friendliness but genuine caring: On our first night, after dinner, wondering aloud to one another if we could find our way back to our room, the receptionist without our asking summoned a bellman to drive us back in a golf cart.
Four Seasons, hugging two-mile-long Pinney Beach, covers a meticulously maintained 350 acres of gardens and golf course that sweep up to the foothills of Nevis Peak, which is a dormant volcano in the center of this tiny island rising 4,000 feet out of the Caribbean.
With 196 rooms and suites in several two-story buildings, the Four Seasons is a place to retreat into delicious luxury and romance.
Since Nevisian regulations limit buildings to the height of a palm tree, nothing is taller than two stories high. And no permanent structure stands directly on the beach here; everything is built behind a small berm a few yards to the water.
