Our recent visit to Four Seasons Resort Nevis was an absolute dream. Before working with the resort, I must admit, I had never heard of the island before. Like many people, I knew of it’s sister island St Kitts, but had no idea the two together make up one nation. Yes, Nevis is the little sister of St Kitts, but don’t let her size fool you. This destination is full of natural wonder, pristine beaches, and plenty of romance. You might be tempted to think all islands are pretty much the same, however I can assure you they are all unique with one of kind charms and attractions. Here are just a few of our favorite things to do at Four Seasons Resort Nevis.

It could be argued that you’re not officially on “Island Time” until you’ve begun your vacation with a tropical drink crafted with the official spirit of the island’s. Indeed, if you are looking for a rum filled concoction, head to the resort’s new Kastaway Bar and order up it’s signature Kastaway Smash. Created with four different kinds of rum you can be sure this sweet creation will officially put you in “Vacation Mode”. Relax under the shade of an umbrella, sink your toes in the sand, and toast to getting away from it all.
Tip: Pair your tasty Kastaway Smash with a Kastaway Roll. Decadent sushi straight from the sea. It doesn’t get any fresher than that.

Traveling can be stressful. Embrace the journey and reward yourself with the resort’s signature Nevisian Massage. When you prepare to unwind the service will begin with a foot soaking ritual that includes a sugar scrub (a nod to the island’s long history in the sugar trade), as well as native botanical ingredients. Customize your treatment by selecting the essential oil fragrance you love best, and let your troubles melt away. As the service comes to a close you’ll be brought back to the present with the gentle chime of a tropical steel drum.
Tip: Make sure to enjoy the spa amenities including the hot water pool, and the invigorating cold water reflection pool. A full menu of healthy refreshments is also available when you are ready to refuel.

Tour the Island Off-Road
Get to know the birthplace of Alexander Hamilton in the most adventurous way possible. Have the resort reserve an ATV tour for your party with Funky Monkey Tours and head off-road. See more of Nevis’ untouched natural beauty in the form of white sandy beaches, and tropical rainforests. View historic landmarks and century old ruins of a sugar industry that once dominated the landscape. There is no more exciting way to take in the island while immersing yourself in it’s bio-diversity and history.
Tip: Remember to bring your license for a chance to take a turn in the driver’s seat.

As a part of the West Indies, Nevis is home to many tropical wonders. One of these natural wonders is the majestic Sea Turtle. The beaches of Nevis Island are well documented to be nesting grounds for this noble marine animal. In celebration of this, Four Seasons Resort Nevis holds an annual Sea Turtle Conservation weekend every year. During the event, the Sea Turtle Conservancy humanely captures and tags a sea turtle found nesting on the beach, and returns it to the sea the following morning. Guests are invited to join the Sea Turtle Conservancy, the Nevis Turtle Group, and staff from the resort as they comb the beach at night looking for a nesting female. This bucket list event is a unique way to experience the magic of the island and a once in a lifetime story to tell if you happen to be there when they do find the turtle. Whether you join the night watch or not, if the turtle is captured, it’s a special sight to see as a huge crowd gathers the next morning to celebrate the creatures return to it’s watery home.
Tip: If you join the night watch be sure to leave your devices behind and wear dark clothing, as the turtles are extremely sensitive to white light.

Once you experience a Beach Cabana for a day, you wont ever go back. Truly the ultimate luxury, in one of the resort’s Cabana’s, you can have it all. Enjoy a fully stocked mini fridge full of your favorite beverages. Order lunch and a glass of wine and dine with a view of your own little slice of beach. Private chairs are reserved by the water, as well as just in front of your Cabana, in addition to a hammock just for you. Want some privacy? Put up your do not disturb flag and close the Cabana doors. No need to go back to your room for anything. Enjoy a nap, nosh all day, and drink to your happiness. It truly is a vacation “must-have”.
Tip: Reserve your Cabana well in advance, they book up fast.
