The Nisbet Plantation Beach Club on Nevis, offers gorgeous resort accommodations in a Caribbean plantation setting. Where fields of tobacco and sugar cane once grew, palm trees now line lawns of manicured grass. The Alexander Hamilton Birthplace Museum is eight miles from the property in the charming town of Newcastle.
The plantation was originally constructed in 1778 as the home of Fannie Nisbet, and the love she felt for her husband, Admiral Horatio Nelson of the Royal Navy, became legendary. The plantation remains a bastion of maritime romance, often frequented by couples seeking romantic retreats in the Caribbean sun. The Nelson Museum is located in nearby Newcastle. The Nisbet Plantation Beach Club offers a crystal-blue freshwater pool landscaped with palms and flanked by a spacious beachside sundeck. The beachside bar hosts a complimentary weekly rum-punch party. Onsite activities include tennis, swimming, snorkeling, fishing and croquet. On select afternoons, the hotel hosts crab races, with opportunities for guests to place wagers on their favorite contestants. The hotel restaurant can prepare picnic baskets for guests who would like to dine alfresco. The full-service spa, The Palms Spa, offers range of rejuvenating treatments. Free private parking is available on site for all guests.
Nisbet Plantation Beach Club has 36 rooms in 15 cottage style accommodations spread over 30 plantation acres of beachside property, affording guests privacy and seclusion. Guestrooms are comfortable and windows open to the cooling breezes of the sea. Connecting rooms are available upon request, as well as free extra beds.
