When visiting St. Kitts and Nevis islands in the Caribbean, we spent a bit more than a day also on Nevis to see the difference between the two islands. We had a little tour through the best places to stay on Nevis as they are all unique and the first one we visited was Four Seasons Nevis hotel.
There, we were greeted by beautiful Ana Rivera, the Spa manager. She was born in Puebla, Mexico and that was enough already for me to like her (I’m one of the biggest fans of Mexico ever!)
Ana walked us around Four Seasons Nevis with a smile to show us the best of it. It has 10 cottages and villas for rent/sale, 4 restaurants, 3 gift shops and 3 pools (one pool is reflection pool only for adults, so no kids – a quiet romantic place with red umbrellas). We spotted a big crab wandering next to us when walking around.

The hotel offers Caribbean cooking classes, coconut and dancing classes, Nevisian dialect class, free yoga, gym, complimentary water sports such as kayaking and windsurfing. Dive & dine offer is pretty cool too – the chef and the diver go fishing with the family staying at the hotel, they catch a lobster and then cook it together. Four Seasons also has a golf court with 18 holes, and tennis courts. Another interesting fact about the hotel is that two private boats go to Port Zante on St. Kitts with the Four Seasons guests.
After the hurricane 5 years ago the hotel was closed and reopened 2 years ago with sand protecting the hotel from the sea so it looks completely different now. Returning guests can spot the difference. We did not but I truly loved more sand there no matter how it used to look before.
It was not just the pretty white sand beach or the views from the Four Seasons Nevis cottages that I fell in love with immediately. The silence all around was great for meditation and to regain energy and I highly appreciate hotels like that. Even when Four Seasons Nevis is full, you will never feel like in an overcrowded place but will always have some peace and quiet there. Thumbs up!

My best memories, however, go to the Four Seasons Nevis spa. Together with my 2 friends Judith and Rupert we spent a few relaxing hours in there. After filling up the form and choosing box lunch, we changed into swimsuit, put the bath robes on and lay down outside in the spa area next to the jacuzzi.
Foot massage was what followed. I remembered the days spent in Thailand when I could afford a foot massage every single day, and sometimes even a whole body massage or a foot massage and a back massage on the same day. Reflexology is one of the best ways to cure little problems and always puts me into very relaxing mode. With the waterfall noise coming from the jacuzzi it felt amazing!
Afterwards, our box lunch was ready. I chose the cleansing and refreshing lunch with carrots, apple, pear and mango that reduces blood pressure. It truly stood up for its name, I got a lot of energy once I enjoyed every bite. Eating fresh fruit and veggies next to a jacuzzi and after a massage, still in a bath robe, made me more than happy.
Then, we had some time to just relax on the sun bed, warm up in the jacuzzi or walk around the colder pool, drink water, chat or simply breathe in the positive energy that was all around the Four Seasons Nevis spa.

My trip to Nevis island was a press trip organized by the St. Kitts Tourist Board and Nevis Tourism in the collaboration with Fours Seasons Nevis. All the opinions in this article are my own as usual. Many thanks to everyone who made my Nevis stay a pleasure.
