These three stunning hotels are truly unique. Superb design makes the spectacular views of the Pitons from Jade Mountain on St Lucia even more special. Guests can enjoy views coupled with rooms justifiably called sanctuaries, where they may choose to dine or even enjoy a sunset spa treatment. Nisbet Plantation Beach Club on Nevis is the only plantation house hotel set on a beach in the Caribbean and its level of service is just one of its excellent features. And then there’s the chic, laidback resort of GoldenEye in Jamaica with its unique history and exceptional accommodation from cottages beside its lagoon to cool beach huts.
Designed by its owner and architect, this hillside resort has the most incredible views of the Pitons and the Caribbean Sea from its 24 sanctuaries. With 15ft high ceilings and a missing fourth wall, guests are offered the unique feeling of a view with no boundaries. Even the rooms have names that look to the sky!
The exceptional dining at Jade Mountain is inspired and overseen by its renowned chef, Allen Susser. His chefs can create a unique, private dining experience for guests by preparing a menu that you’ve chosen in your sanctuary, creating an intimate theatre kitchen all of your own. Every guest can also enjoy a personal butler who will provide anything you wish during your stay.
This resort is unique as the only plantation style property located on a beach in the whole of the Caribbean. Its 30 acres of tropical gardens are dotted with lemon painted cottages that lead down to a coral fringed, white sand beach, making this the perfect setting for a tranquil escape.
This idyllic setting is combined with truly outstanding service where guests can enjoy the warmth of the welcome that continues throughout their stay. The friendly staff are part of a happy, longstanding team with a host of familiar faces. The Maitre’D, Patterson Fleming, will even take guests on a bar crawl to meet the locals and sample delicacies like Johnny cakes and Sunshine Bar’s Killer Bee beer!
Now with cool, colourfully painted beach huts set above the sands, GoldenEye is a truly unique, laidback destination and its range of accommodation is unparalled. Whether it’s waterfront cottages in tropical gardens overlooking the lagoon with interiors designed by Barbara Hulanicki of Biba fame or the new beachfront huts complete with verandas and Sonos sound systems overlooking the bay – the choice is yours!
Guests can kayak to the waterfront spa, snorkel from the smooth sands of Low Cay beach, read a book on the terrace of their lagoon cottage or enjoy lunch in the beachfront bar. And there’s always the Gazebo Restaurant with its tree house style and delicious menus of rack of lamb and grilled lobster too.
