The charming Nisbet Plantation is a luxury hotel on Nevis, tucked away along the north coast on what was once, as the name suggests, a former sugar plantation.

Saskia, Will and Alexandra are here to help give you the inside track.

There are 36 rooms and suites in lemon-coloured cottages with wood tiled roofs dotted around the extensive grounds. The interiors are not overly luxurious, but certainly comfortable and tasteful, with white clapboard roofs, wicker furniture and well-appointed en suite bathrooms.

But the main attractions are, of course, outside, with supremely manicured lawns leading through groves of palm trees to a quintessentially Caribbean beach and decent sized pool.

Dining options include the Coconuts Restaurant, which serves a great breakfast in a prime beachfront location, while evening meals can be enjoyed at the Great House where the emphasis is on a wide selection of Caribbean specialities. The Sea breeze bar is great for a sunset cocktail or two, as well as snacks to fuel those highly energetic sunbathing sessions.

Activities on offer from the hotel include walks through the rainforest, snorkelling and diving excursions, island hopping, riding along the beach and deep sea fishing. Alternatively full pampering is on offer in the Nisbet Spa, which offers massages and other body treatments, facials, manicures and pedicures using La Natura and Collective Skin Care products. And if even that sounds a little too active, there's always a strategic beach hammock to retreat to.

Why we love it

Of all the former plantations that have since been turned into luxury hotels, only Nisbet is actually right on the beach.
