The best luxury hotels in St. Kitts and Nevis, chosen by our renown luxury travel expert, Christopher Parr. These top 5 luxury resorts are awarded the Pursuitist Platinum badge for the “Best of the Best” in luxury.
Located miles apart, the beautiful sister isles of St Kitts and Nevis remain two of my favorite islands in the Caribbean. Their beaches are gorgeous, their mountainous lush coastlines are perfect for day hikes, and when it comes to local life, this is about as causal and fun as it gets this side of the Atlantic. Limin’ is a way of life.
It’s a very quick jaunt to travel to St. Kitts and Nevis. Just a 3-hour flight from Miami, 4 hours from New York, and 7 hours from Chicago.
St. Kitts, the main island, is home to a World Heritage site, the enormous Brimstone Hill Fortress, and a unique scenic railway that travels along the coast.
The more secluded Nevis is equally charming thanks to the stunning Nevis Peak rising from its heart, and a rare collection of exceptional plantation-style hotels. And there’s so much to see, do and eat on the adventurous island of Nevis. Choose from tranquil, secluded stretches of sand or more lively beaches with resorts, bars and restaurants.
It is delightful to refresh, relax and rejuvenate while staying at these top 5 luxury hotels in St. Kitts and Nevis.

The experience begins on your water taxi ride from St. Kitts to Nevis, as you near the private beachfront dock belonging to Four Seasons. The arrival is reminiscent of the opening credits of Fantasy Island, as travelers are greeting by the friendly staff on the island dock, served Champaign, and quickly whisked away to their private accommodations.
The resort features a 12-treatment-room spa, a 92-acre golf course overlooking the Caribbean, swimming pools, and tennis courts.
The property has numerous casual and fine dining experiences, including the recently debuted On the Dune, which offers fresh seafood specialties and delicious Caribbean cocktails in a playful luxury atmosphere that offers sunset views of St. Kitts. We recommend the private beachfront cabanas with dedicated beach butlers.
But the real Caribbean charm and magic of the resort lies in the Four Seasons staff. During our stay, the Nevis team went above and beyond to make our visit to paradise exquisite.
The garden-lined property is meticulously kept, and the pools and beaches are serene. From amazing golf experiences to top culinary dining, the heavenly Four Seasons Nevis is our favorite luxury hotel in paradise. (Read Four Seasons Nevis Review)
