“Virtually perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 January 2012

It's now almost two weeks since our return from Nevis at the Four Seasons and I'm dreaming of being back on that warm beach with everything I could possibly want at my fingertips.
My long review is more a recount, as writing it takes me back, and makes me smile.
We were lucky enough to spend 8 nights here (husband & I) in a deluxe oceaview room. We arrived via a connecting flight into St Kitts and post a hot and humid 30 minutes waiting to clear customs, we were met by the FS reps, whisked away through the busy streets of St Kitts to the waiting ferry. A quick (35 min) and pleasant trip inclusive of rum punch leads you straight to the FS dock where your individual escort brings you straight to your room. Luggage arrives a quick 5 minutes after arrival, in our case.
Being 2 adults, they put us in the perfect location, building 10 at the far end of the resort, near the adults only pool. We were on the second floor with a direct view of the ocean and spectacular sunsets. The rooms are nicely decorated, big bathrooms, L'Occitane amenities, bottled water and welcome cakes. Each day and night the water is replenished, and at your request they will or will not change the linens daily. The balconies have both sitting chairs and lounges for relaxation. We didn't experience bugs as much as in other islands, so perhaps it's timing.
The property is spectacular. So lush and green, with the staff taking great care of the surroudings. It's a bit dark at night, it's worth it to bring a little flashlight - or you can purchase a tiny one in the gift shop for $5 - (tiny gripe, these are given complimentary at Little Dix and Caneel Bay, FS should consider). We took full advantage of the property in terms of exploration. We walked the golf course and all the beaches (3 distinct areas) almost daily. We saw the monkeys and we met resident dogs and cats. We fell quickly into the perfect routine: wake up late (930ish), relax on the balcony, head to breakfast (buffet until 11am, full menu until 12n), take a hike for a few hours (on and off the property), ending in the afternoon on the beach. We stayed on the beach daily from 2ish to sunset and beyond. Got ready for dinner and headed out around 8-830pm. It was great!
Service on the beach is great and by the second day they know you and your spots. Steve and Uroy were great.
From here on in, I will bullet point sights and restaurants:
Four Season Restaurants:
- Neve, this is where breakfast is served daily. Full standard buffet w/omelettes made to order + full menu. They also serve dinner (and maybe lunch, not 100%). We had dinner here the first night and once more. Standard casual italian, the pizza is actually quite good - being from NY that is a bold statement. They have a real NY pizza oven and it worked!
- Coral Grill, higher end steak/seafood. We ate dinner here 1x, and were going to go back but found other great restaurants. Not enough time! We enjoyed the daily catch here, sides were good, decent wine list, nice romantic atmosphere.
- Mangos, ate here 2x. Make reservations in high season, we were blocked out one night. We missed the sunset here, but that's fine as we were still on the beach! I enjoyed Mangos the most, they have a focus on local ingredients 'sea to table'. Excellent conch chowder and veggie roti. Snapper was great as well.
- Beach lunch. We ate most of our lunches on the beach. The grouper wrap was our go-to lunch. Fresh grilled and with crisp veggies. Basic but perfect for the setting.
- Cabana grill. We only ate here once for a quick bite in between breakfast and dinner. I forgot what I ate, but my husband had the fish fritters and they were not good. They should be removed from the menu, seriously...they had a weird mix of different fish in each fritter, we thought there were 3 different fritters. Eh, small infraction.
Overall, we were pleasantly surprised with the food. Our expectations are always set a bit lower coming from NY and working in the restaurant industry, but we really enjoyed the food and atmosphere.
The service was 99%. The biggest issue is at breakfast with seating. Everyone wants to sit outside and we asked every day. Almost every day the hostess would greet us with 'sorry we don't have an outside table' and would seat us inside, only to seat the next party outside. We eventually just let her sit us anywhere and then got up and moved outside. The issue is overloading the waitresses as we noticed. An easy fix. A nice touch was in each restaurant during dinner the chef would come to the table to ask about the experience. They were pleasant and open to discussion.
The Library Bar is great. Kendie is the best!

Off property restaurants:
- Sunshine's, go! have a killer bee, or a Carib. It's a 2 minute walk down the beach. They were out of the conch fritters so they made us a special grilled fish sandwich and fries. Was delicious!
- Bananas, go!!! We went twice because of 3 key experiences: local food, beautiful setting, excellent service. This is a local favorite, and with good reason. The food is great, but the spirit is even better. It has a nice bar as well, but the people here make it so special. Shane, our waiter is a doll. He moonlights as an air traffic controller, but should work in public relations.
- Coconut Grove, go!! The best wine list we've ever experienced in the islands. The proprietors are a french couple who relocated from St Martin. I was so happy to have unpasteurized Camembert! The hosts are lovely as is the service. The chef has a nice twist on french caribbean cuisine, and there's a vegan soup daily. As we shared similar backgrounds with the owner, we were lucky enough to head down to the wine cellar for a tour and partake in some amazing port. That was a late night...They are open for lunch in high season and have a pool you can use as well.
- Golden Rock Inn, go!! For lunch. As everyone says. I don't like lobster(!) so we had grouper sandwiches, which were good. It's the setting. We walked the Nature Trail and were so happy to have a cold Carib with those amazing views when we were done. Service is definitely island time here, but really, where else are we going??
- Botanical Gardens Thai Restaurant, maybe go...we enjoyed it but they were out of a lot of items. The lemonade was delicious and I hope they are back in stock of some menu items. If they are, then I recommend it. Setting is beautiful, in the middle of the BG.

Sights - we didn't leave that often, just to the restaurants for dinner, the Botanical Gardens and the Nature Trail. I recommend them all!

The FS concierge is great, they will help out with any arrangements you want. They took care of all of our reservations and recommended other activities. While we did not partake in golf or tennis, when we go back we surely will. The spa is beautiful and the gym is pretty well equipped.

In summary, the Four Seasons Nevis is a special place and really encourages you to shut your phone off and enjoy your vacation as you should. Although they have free wifi, which was great for me to download some Nook books.

If anyone wants a great taxi/tour guide, I have the perfect recommendation. A driver we met who we requested for all of our trips. Feel free to contact me for details, he'll make your trip extra special!

Room Tip: Top floor ocean rooms have an unobstructed view of the pool and ocean. Bottom floor are level so the...

It may have taken two flights, but it was well worth it. When we waited for our luggage at the St. Kitts airport, the Four Seasons found us and whisked away our luggage. We saw it again in our room on Nevis. They took us to a van for a short ride to the dock, followed by a 35 minute boat ride directly to the Four Seasons dock. Even getting to the hotel was a vacation!
Our room was comfortable, clean and new. The staff - well, one can't pass ANYONE without receiving a cheery hello. The food in the restaurants was terrific. The beach was beautiful. There are three pools - one just for adults.
If you go to Nevis, do take the time to get off property, though. There are wonderful restaurants on Nevis; the catamaran trip to go snorkeling off St. Kitts was fun, and the jeep tour of the island was eye-opening and gave us a really nice sense of the island of Nevis with its lush vegetation, rain forest, Atlantic and Caribbean coasts.

Room Tip: Ask for a corner room. We like first floors. Ours faced the mountain which we think affords greater...

One of the world's most perfect spots, staffed by cordial and helpful people with ideal weather, eye-popping scenery, and a sense of privacy and respect for privacy that you can't get elsewhere. Of course, it comes at a price; but it's one I didn't regret.

Room Tip: There are only two views; beach or Mountain and they are equally beautiful if not awe-inspiring.

This resort is beautiful, perfect. The services of FS are always combined with great locations, and the FS Nevis is no exception. My wife and I were there three weeks--enough to get upset about something, but that never happened. Our walks on the beach at sundown made for great memories.

Had a wonderful time celebrating a family event at the Four Seasons Nevis. The entire staff and service were first rate. We flew into St. Kits and were met as soon as you exit customs with a Four Seasons representative. Luggage is collected and you are taken on a short van ride to the pier where the Four Seasons' boat awaits. A 35 minute ride across the small straight to Nevis brings you to the Four Seasons dock where you are individually escorted direct to your room with the luggage following a couple minutes later. The reverse happens on departure. This entire operation operates smoothly and without the least bit of stress – a real positive experience! The only sad spot is in the functionality of the St. Kits airport – it is still un-air conditioned (a permanent sign says it is under repair) and there is really only a single customs agent to check the passports for an entire planeload of people. It can take an hour or more to clear the immigration process. Clearing security on departure is less of a hassle, with more personnel manning the screening process. Again, though, the lack of air conditioning makes the departure wait a bit too long.
The entire Four Seasons resort is spotless and very well kept. It seemed our room was cleaned and serviced with new towels and mineral water every time it was vacant. There were only a few people at the resort while we were there (mid January) as it was between the Christmas-New Years rush and the various Spring Breaks. This allowed for instant attention from the beach and pool attendants and made it seem that the entire resort was working for us! One disadvantage to having small occupancy, however, is that several excursions (such as the catamaran for snorkeling) require a minimum number of people. On a couple of occasions, we were the only two requesting accommodation and hence the event was not available. There is plenty to do, from golf to complementary "water toys" such as sail boats, snorkeling gear etc. Motorized tubing, jet skis, power boat etc. can be rented. Dining at the Four Seasons was varied. Perhaps the best overall in terms of food quality and service was Neve – southern Italian cuisine. Perfect from a small dinner on the day of arrival (spectacular salads and pizza) to a full course meal. Eat outside on the deck, as the interior can be a bit bistro-like on the noise scale due to the hard acoustics. Disappointing was the Coral Grill. There we were seated inside as the outside deck tables were pulled together to seat either 6 or 8, even though a party of that size never materialized. They would seat 3 or 4 at these large table sets, but not pull them apart in twos or fours. The inside seating is visually fine, again a bit noisy due to the hard acoustics, but the service left much to be desired. The waitperson insisted on keeping the ice bucket with wine and water on the center island, but it always took 5 minutes to flag them down to refill glasses. Delivery was also slow. Although the food was good, it was not spectacular. The menu items are $45-$50 for main course – with potato, vegetable etc. an additional $8 each. So one is looking at a $65 steak or rack of lamb that is certainly quite good – but not at the gourmet level. We had made a reservation at Mango, an informal al fresco restaurant at waters edge, but cancelled when other guests commented that the food was very variable. We also ate off-site at Bananas, The Plantation Inn and Golden Rock – all great eating experiences. All in all you will eat well on Nevis and enjoy all of the dining opportunities - but do not expect that this will be the equivalent of a multi-starred gourmet restaurant in a major city such as Chicago, New York, San Francisco or Paris as fancy ingredients are hard to come by. However, (with the exception of the Coral Grill) the food and wine prices are very very reasonable.

Room Tip: Lateral sound insulation is very good. We stayed on the second floor, with a great view of the Cari...
