Four Seasons Resort Nevis
Set on the long, silver sands of Pinney's Beach on the sheltered west coast of Nevis, the Four Seasons is a large resort with an impressive array of facilities, high standards of service and direct access to the island's only golf course.
Laze by one of the three infinity pools, have a massage in the spa, take a professional tennis lesson or catch some lobster for dinner. It's the kind of resort with so much going on you may find it hard to draw yourself away. But when you do, you'll find you're just a ten minute walk from characterful local restaurants and bars and within easy access of a huge number of day trips from touring the island and seeing its monkeys brought here by French sailors to taking a guided tour of the coral reef or visiting some of the nearby islands.
There's also a lively children's club, complimentary non-motorized water sports and five restaurants to choose from. Throughout, the resort is sleek and modern and extremely well managed ensuring everyone in the family is very well looked after.
The 196 spacious rooms are set in two-story blocks surrounded by lush gardens. They are decorated in a contemporary, international style and have marble bathrooms with deep baths and separate showers, and either private terraces or patios.
Before the beach - 4 days
With a sparkling coastline and fair winds, sailing has always played an important role in Antigua and still does today. Beautiful sailing yachts and gleaming superyachts still dock in English Harbour while you can explore the 18th century Georgian dockyard at Nelson’s Dockyard. Travel round the island to uncover hidden gems such as historic sugar mills or secluded coves.
South Point’s spacious and contemporary accommodation is located in the heart of Antigua’s English Harbour with enviable views across the marina. Historic Nelson’s Dockyard is within walking distance and the hotel’s restaurant and suites overlook the visiting yachts moored in the marina. The 23 condo-style apartments are smart and spacious with fully-equipped, modern kitchens.

The resort enjoys a serene location, with a few local beach bars within walking distance. The quaint capital, Charlestown, is a 10 minute car drive away with shops and restaurants.
The Four Seasons offers the very best of the Caribbean — a lush, undeveloped island with a long stretch of beach. Yet with a few beach bars nearby, it’s not isolated. The array of activities on offer make it perfect for a long beach stay, and the extensive children’s program provides a fuss-free family stay.

Antigua is said to have 365 beaches, one for every day of the year, but the island also boasts an impressive historical pedigree. No less a sailor than Admiral Nelson based his fleet here, and the easy-going Caribbean ambience of the island is complemented by a tangible British influence. The historic Nelson’s Dockyard is testament to this colonial history, though the luxury yachts bobbing in the water hint at a more glamorous side to modern day Antigua.
The people are incredibly friendly, and the island comes together to party every Sunday night as the sun sets at Shirley Heights, an old naval garrison overlooking the majestic English Harbour. The brightly colored buildings and duty free shopping of the capital, St John’s, make for an interesting half day excursion, while the south west of the island is home to a picturesque landscape of rainforest, ruined forts and old sugar mills.
The beaches range from bustling stretches lined with lively bars to little visited bays and secluded coves. Escape the crowds by taking a trip over to sister island Barbuda, blessed with miles of unspoilt pink sands, or tread the road less traveled and explore Antigua’s rugged east coast, where conditions are ideal for a whole host of water sports. The more tranquil waters of the Caribbean Sea, meanwhile, offer ample opportunities for diving and snorkeling.

Next door to the Antigua Yacht club, and a short walk from the restaurant-lined Dockyard Drive, South Point is perfect for exploring English Harbour. The UNESCO World Heritage Site of Nelson’s Dockyard is also within walking distance. After a busy day, the views across Falmouth Harbour can be enjoyed from the hotel bar.
