Ottleys Plantation Inn, St Kitts

Ottley’s Plantation Inn is a romantic hotel which occupies an 18th century plantation’s Great House on St Kitts, with glorious views over the Atlantic Ocean and the majestic Mount Liamuiga. Its lawns are dotted with shrubs and coconut palms, while the ruins of part of the former sugar mill have been cleverly designed to create a magnificent 65-foot spring-fed swimming pool which is candle-lit at night.

The 35 acre estate is a magnificent Caribbean hideaway with balmy breezes throughout the year, perched on a hillside 500 feet above sea level. Ottley's Plantation Inn is just ten minutes’ drive from the airport and 15 minutes’ drive from the capital of St Kitts, Basseterre.

Ottley’s Plantation Inn has been beautifully renovated to preserve an aura of colonial grandeur while adding modern luxuries. Rooms are split between the Great House and charming cottages, and are tastefully furnished with antiques and colourful chintzes. All rooms offer ocean or garden views with air conditioning and ceiling fans, while the Supreme rooms feature Italian tiled bathrooms with a Jacuzzi, a private patio and plunge  pool.

The Royal Palm is the resort’s acclaimed gourmet restaurant which has received rave worldwide reviews since its opening. The romantic, al fresco restaurant sits near the pool and nestles into the stone walls that remain of the old sugar factory. Renowned for its Sunday Champagne Brunch and dinner menus that change on a daily basis, the restaurant serves cuisine which blends many cultures and incorporates the finest island ingredients whenever possible.

Activities available at Ottley’s Plantation Inn include tennis, croquet, cycling and walking trails through the rainforest where vervet monkeys chatter. A daily shuttle stops at a choice of two Caribbean beaches, the capital city of Basseterre and the Royal St. Kitts golf course.  The latest addition to the plantation's amenities is the Mango Orchard Spa where a full menu of spa treatments can be enjoyed while overlooking the rainforest ravine.

The clement temperature on St. Kitts has prompted it to be selected by Conde Nast as having the best climate in the Caribbean and one of the 10 best in the world, adding to Ottley Plantation Inn’s attraction as a perfect setting for weddings and reunions.

Our Opinion

Ottley's Plantation Inn is located on a hillside with stunning views out to sea, It's truly a special place.  The cottages are spread throughout the vast gardens creating a great feeling of space and I particularly loved the supreme cottages with their own private plunge pools - perfect for that special getaway!  The pool is built using the remains of the old sugar mill and is magically lit up at night, making it a  great place to relax at the adjacent bar and enjoy a cocktail or two before dinner.  The property has it's own croquet lawn for afternoon fun and is bordered to one side by a rainforest which is perfect for exploring, try and get out early to see the monkeys swinging through the canopy.  Food here is an experience with an ever changing a la carte menu, do try the local specialties and make sure you are hungry!  Highly recommended for those looking to experience something unique and special.  I would return in a heartbeat.
