About Nisbet Plantation
Nisbet Plantation Beach Club is the Caribbean’s only deluxe plantation inn located directly on the beach. It is also one of the Caribbean’s historic sugar plantations and the ancestral home of Fanny Nisbet, the loving and ever-faithful wife of Britain’s most famous naval hero – Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson.
The plantation’s beautifully-restored Great House, which dates from 1778, and 36 charming cottages with all modern conveniences are set in 30 acres of lush tropical foliage. A broad lawn, flanked by stately royal palm trees, sweeps down from the Great House to a half-mile-wide white sand beach.
A lovely freshwater pool, hot tub, restaurant and beach bar conveniently overlook the ocean. Guests can play tennis, croquet and snorkel at Nisbet, and keeping with the resort’s value-added focus, the use of all sporting equipment is complimentary.
The resort recently completed a multi-million dollar renovation adding a spa treatment room, a new fitness centre and hot tub by the pool overlooking the ocean. Every guest room and bathroom has also been updated making Nisbet the newest resort on Nevis. The Great House is now one of only three restaurants on the island where guests can dine in air-conditioned splendor.
In July 2006 Nisbet Plantation Beach Club achieved the prestigious Green Globe Benchmarked Certificate recognizing its commitment to operating at the world’s highest environmental standards.
Nisbet is regularly named one of the top ten values in the Caribbean and voted one of the “world’s best” by the readers of Travel + Leisure. It was proclaimed one of the “world’s best places to stay” in the CondÃ© Nast Traveler’s 2005 Gold List and www.TripAdvisor.com rates Nisbet as the #1 most popular hotel on Nevis.
It is a favorite of honeymooners and lovers and is one of “the Top 10 most romantic resorts in the Caribbean,” according to www.TheKnot.com, the leading web site for weddings and honeymoons.
The island of Nevis, where no hotel is higher than a palm tree, is as welcoming and relaxing as the resort. Locals smile and say “good morning” to visitors and the people at Nisbet Plantation go out of their way to please guests.
