General Manager’s hike

General Manager’s hike: Every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday Tim and his wife Tina set off on a 5 mile hike at 7am, leading guests through the villages and countryside surrounding the hotel. The walk is reasonably strenuous and is an excellent way of seeing a different side to Nevis, arriving back in time for breakfast at Coconuts! The couple will share their knowledge of the island and point out wildlife including Green Vervet Monkeys.

Rum shop tour: On a Friday afternoon, guests can set off on a pub crawl with a member of the resort’s staff to visit some hidden gems and experience authentic island life. Sample local rums as well as typical Nevisian cuisine including Johnny cakes, goat soup, conch fritters and roasted breadfruit. The tour takes in 3 or 4 rum shops and is a great way for guests to interact with the local community. The rum shop tour costs $25 for transportation with guests paying for food and drink as they go.

Snorkelling tours: A new excursion available at Nisbet Plantation takes place on Wednesday and Friday mornings, allowing guests to visit the island’s most popular snorkelling spots. Set off at 8.30am then board a boat that takes you to pretty locations where you can dive in and snorkel with tropical fish. The two and a half hour trip costs $65 per person plus taxi transfers.

View from botanical gardens

Botanical gardens: Visit the island’s beautiful botanical gardens, where five acres of gardens are home to one of the finest collections of tropical plants in the Caribbean including stunning orchids. Spend a few hours strolling along the winding paths, then visit the pretty Great House at the centre of the garden and relax with a drink while taking in the views of Nevis Peak.

Funky Monkey Island Tour: Get off the beaten track and enjoy a unique island tour in a 4×4, a fantastic way to see another side to the island. A knowledgeable guide will drive you along dirt tracks, pointing out wildlife and places of interest including beaches and plantation ruins.


Cuisine at Nisbet Plantation Beach Club matches the high standards of its service, offering the option to dine on a bed and breakfast, half board or full board basis. Breakfast is served at Coconuts Restaurant, an open-air setting overlooking the pool and beach, while snacks are served at Sea Breeze Beach Bar. The Great House is an elegant venue for afternoon tea and evening meals, allowing guests to dine on the verandah or in the air-conditioned restaurant.

A highlight is the weekly barbeque night – every Thursday  Coconuts Restaurant hosts a beachfront barbeque which is extremely popular with guests, locals and other visitors to the island. The evening kicks off with the Manager’s Cocktail Party where hotel guests can sip on rum punch while local vendors showcase jewellery and handcrafted souvenirs. Guests are then invited to sample a wide range of Caribbean dishes, from freshly-grilled fish to Nevisian Pork Stew accompanied by traditional side dishes and mouth-watering salads, followed by tempting desserts. Entertainment is provided by local bands who encourage guests to dance the night away!
