The multi-award-winning Nisbet Plantation Beach Club retains much of the grandeur and charm of its 18th century origins, yet manages to combine this with contemporary luxury in an intimate setting. The restored plantation house at its centre was once the home of Fanny Nisbet, the wife of Lord Nelson, and now provides the elegant venue for evening dinner, as well as afternoon tea on the terrace, and croquet on the lawn. There are only 36 guest rooms, some big enough for families, accommodated in cottages scattered around the grounds, each surrounded by about a quarter-acre of tropical gardens for the utmost privacy. All the cottages have traditional Nevisian high white pyramid roofs, lemon and pastel decor, and wicker furniture.
Besides dinner at the Great House, you can have lunch at the Sea Breeze Restaurant, and breakfast — with local fruits and other local specialities — at Coconuts. Coconuts is also the scene of the delightful Thursday night beach barbecue, with a steel band, to which all islanders are invited — a great chance to meet the local people. The Nisbet Plantation provides a picture-perfect backdrop for weddings, and as an extra special touch, when you get married here the resort plants a coconut palm in your name — encouraging you to come back year after year to watch it grow, along with your relationship.
