Nevis are proud to home the Caribbean’s first ever hotel, Bath Hotel. Built in 1778, the Bath Hotel was once a hub for the wealthy and famous who retreated to Nevis for the solace and comfort the Spring House offered through their therapeutic hot spring baths.

You too can enjoy the thermal spa and treat your various aches and pains by immersing yourself in the hot volcanic waters of the Bath Spring. The spring water is reputed to contain minerals of medicinal value and is known to have cured chronic rheumatism and gout with water temperature ranging from 104F (40C) to 108F (42C)

The island of Nevis is naturally one of the best-kept secrets of the Caribbean. British Admiral Horatio Nelson, captain of His Majesty’s Ship the Boreas, stopped at Nevis to
water his ship on his many visits to the region. On March 11, 1787 he fell in love and married a local Nevisian beauty, Frances Herbert Nisbet on the grounds of Montpelier Plantation.
It is often said that Nevis evokes memories of the Caribbean as it used to be. A time when life was more peaceful, when stress was just a word, not a way of life.

Browsing in the local market, chatting with friendly artisans, visiting our historical sites, or simply strolling along a secluded beach, the Nevis “experience” will envelop you in a slow, seductive manner.

Part of the Leeward Islands chain, Nevis remains one of the gems of the Caribbean, with
Natural vegetation and beauty that are unparalleled.
Its capital, Charlestown, is among the most charming in the whole region, with its streets and Central Square lined with classic examples of authentic West Indian architecture.

Whether you decide to stay at a five- star resort, an intimate hotel or a picturesque plantation inn for a weekend or a month, the welcome will always be enthusiastic.
Perfect for a destination wedding, you can choose from picturesque churches, historic plantations, soft, sandy beaches or beautiful tropical gardens. All will make your special day a memorable occasion
