In Condé Nast Traveler's recent Reader's Choice Poll, Montpelier earned the top ranking in the entire Caribbean. Not only was Montpelier voted number one in three of five categories (food, service and atmosphere), but is also garnered the number one position overall among all Caribbean resorts -- with a score that placed it as well in the top 25 resorts worldwide.

The Romantik Hotel Montpelier Plantation Inn, nestled 650 feet above the sea in the hills of dormant Mount Nevis, is a Country House hotel in the tropics. Its air is tranquil and intimate, its grounds and accommodations are beautiful, tasteful, and charming, and its service is consistently and quietly exceptional. Owned since 1964 by James Milnes Gaskell and his wife Celia, the Montpelier has emerged over the last three decades as absolutely one of the finest hotels in the Caribbean--and arguably in the entire world.

The attractions of Montpelier are many, and they begin for most visitors with the irresistible beauty of the hotel's grounds. During the 18th century Montpelier was a working sugar plantation, but today the estate is given over to myriad varieties of tropical plants. Hibiscus, frangipani, jasmine, flamboyant trees, African tulip trees, and countless other brilliant and fragrant ornamentals provide acres of Edenic refuge for the world-weary.

 

 

The heart of the estate is Montpelier's Great House, an inviting family home filled with 18th-century antiques and paintings and furnished with a sense of graceful comfort. Its elegant rooms possess a romantic history as well, for it was at Montpelier that Horatio Nelson married Francis Nisbet in 1787. Today, its Drawing Room, Library & Card Room, and Great Room (where the Bar is found) provide for a less formal but no less delightful atmosphere, one characterised by the Inn's many repeat visitors as an ongoing house party. In fact, it is just this relaxed atmosphere that the Milnes Gaskells' guests find most appealing.

If the Great House serves as the focal point of Montpelier's social life, the eight small bungalows that make up the Inn's lodgings offer a complementary degree of tranquil seclusion. The rooms are furnished in a cool, clean tropical style, and each has its own private veranda looking out to sea. Although telephones are provided, the proximity of the outside world is kept nicely at bay by the thoughtful absence of televisions. After a few days in such surroundings, the noisy bustle of the outside world seems a distant memory, replaced by a soothing chorus of tree frogs and cicadas.
