Nevis Travel Guide

Nevis is a tranquil island in the eastern Caribbean where wild donkeys roam and monkeys hop from palm tree to palm tree. The sister island of the larger St. Kitts, no cruise ships stop at Nevis, keeping its old-world Caribbean vibe very much in tact. Rich with history and fantastic cuisine, Nevis is a safe…

The Oldest Rum Punch Recipe in the Caribbean

There’s something very special about the West Indies island of Nevis that not nearly enough people are talking about it: it’s home to the oldest rum punch recipe in the Caribbean. Hermitage Nevis claims that its 300 year-old recipe for rum punch is in fact the first of its kind. The plantation resort dates back…

Seeing Nevis with Funky Monkey Tours

The West Indies island of Nevis has rich history and plenty of great sites to see on its thirty-six square miles but I don’t recommend doing it alone. The roads are tiny and poorly marked. The best way to see the historical sites is with a tour guide. Here’s an in-depth look at my afternoon…

The Gin Trap Nevis

The sunset over St. Kitts from The Gin Trap‘s Nevis patio has to be one of the best I’ve ever seen. It’s a positively epic happy hour. The turquoise couches, chic rustic tables, and twinkling lanterns set the stage for a magical evening. If you’re lucky like I was, you may happen to be at…

Indigo at Montpelier Plantation

Let’s talk about the cutest island pool bar: Indigo at Montpelier Plantation and Beach on Nevis. First of all, the pool at Montpelier is stunning and photos really don’t do its size justice. I did laps one morning and kept looking up in disbelief to see how far away the edge was! It’s nestled neatly…

Restaurant 750 at Montpelier Plantation on the Caribbean island of Nevis feels like you are having dinner at your fancy friend’s house.

Hotel Review: Montpelier Plantation and Beach

You never forget your first Relais and Chateaux resort. Situated in a garden at the base of a volcano on the West Indies island of Nevis, Montpelier Plantation and Beach is a quiet retreat of tranquility for nature lovers like myself. The rooms are bright and clean with fresh florals added daily. With views of the…

Summer Travel Ideas

Have summer travel on your mind? Me too! I’m off to Nevis in the West Indies this week but first I wanted to talk about some summer travel ideas. St. Croix I’m so excited to stay at The Buccaneer on St. Croix this summer! There has never been a better time to visit the US…

Spring Travel Ideas

Raise your hand if you’ve got travel on the brain! It’s not just me? Popular this spring is Cuba since airlines celebrated the travel ban lift with incredible roundtrip deals. Flights to Europe are also unusually low. We’re talking $400-$500 for London, Frankfurt, Milan, and Paris. The trick, I’m reading, is to fly back seven days…

Girl’s Trip to Disneyland

“It’s a great day when you wake up at Disneyland.” Last summer I told myself, Katie Rose, you can’t possibly go to Disneyland twice in a twelve-month period. Then I thought, what is the point of working fourteen hour days if I can’t bounce around the happiest place on earth with my girlfriends on my birthday? So I…

Providenciales in Turks and Caicos is the trip of a lifetime. Home to the world’s best beach and the third best coral reef on Earth, I would say that Providenciales in Turks and Caicos needs to be on your bucket list except it really wants to be on your every year list. This is an island…
