Itinerary

Day 1

On arrival in Saint Kitts you will be met by our representative and transferred by road and water taxi to the beautiful Montpelier Resort on Nevis. Built around an 18th century sugar plantation, historical features have been incorporated into the resort such as the stone sugar mill, now home to an intimate, fine dining restaurant.

Day 2

Your first full day at leisure. Why not explore the capital, Charlestown. Small enough to be explored on foot, there are a couple of museums here and you can visit the courthouse where pirates were prosecuted.

Day 3

This small, friendly island is easy to drive round, so why not hire a car and take a leisurely tour round the Heritage Trail on the island's only main road.

Day 4

Most of the day is free for you to explore. Or if you would prefer to relax, the resort has a beautiful pool as well as a quiet beach club.

Late this afternoon transfer back to the airport in time for your flight to Antigua. On arrival you will be met and transferred by private vehicle to The Inn at English Harbour. The journey down to the south coast will take about 45 minutes.

Day 5

Today is your first day at leisure at this charming and characterful hotel. You may wish to enjoy the complimentary water sports, or simply relax on the beautiful beach.

Day 6

If you would like to explore, take one of the trails through the national park in which the resort is set. Or perhaps head to Shirley Heights for great panoramic views over the harbor. It's well worth visiting on a Sunday for the sunset party with a steel band and barbecue.

Day 7

Today, why not take advantage of the hotel's proximity to English Harbour to visit the marina and explore historic Nelson's Dockyard?

Day 8

Antigua is very popular with sailors and hosts many international regattas. Why not head out on a sailing excursion today? Alternatively take a trip to the pristine pink sands of nearby Barbuda, Antigua's little sister.

Days 9 - 10

At leisure.

Day 11

You have most of the day at leisure before transferring back to the airport in time for your overnight flight home.

Day 12

Arrive home.

Ewan was fantastic in helping me arrange a US trip for me and my Fiancée. Gave me all the top spots and recommendations on what to do, when all I really had to start with was a broad idea of where I wanted to go.
The locations were perfect and the activities made the experience extra special.
I would definitely recommend Audley and especially Ewan to anyone looking for a more bespoke experience.

Unfortunately, I can't review our TRAVEL experience with Audley Travel, but can comment on their non-responsiveness.

I contacted Audley as they came recommended by Wilderness Travel, the company we traveled with previously.

I left multiple messages for their regional specialist Adam -- voice messages through his co-workers (Alec and Jacky), email, website inquiry -- he didn't reply. I finally spoke to another specialist at the office (Lydia) and pressed her to not take yet another message for Adam, but tell me honestly if they are interested in working on our itinerary or we should move on. She then told me that they are busy. Well, wish they had some integrity to tell me on the first call, so I didn't have to loose time on trying to contact their "specialist".

p.s. They sent their automated marketing message with ALL their trips listed in response to my website inquiry. In this message they included: "When you are ready...". I replied that, indeed, we are ready, as I explained in my inquiry -- ready, know where and when we want to travel and are inquiring if you are interested in creating a private journey for us. No reply! Instead, they sent another marketing message the next day (and after Lydia already told us that they are very busy and won't be able to make reservations.) The second marketing message had no option to "unsubscribe". Again, I replied to that message and asked them to stop spamming me with marketing materials.

UPDATE: Audley's Client Experience Executive reached out to me in response to this review. She apologized profusely and wanted me to know that my "feedback is being heard". She said that she spoke with the employees' manager to "ensure mistakes like this don’t happen again and provide additional training to support their growth." She also promised to ask the marketing to delete my name from their marketing list. I took her at her word.

I don't know if this interaction with the client experience executive convinced me to seek Audley's services in the future, but I promised her to include in my review this "status update".

Unfortunately Audley Travel are so arrogant they don’t believe anyone else can provide a better holiday at lower cost

I’m booking for South Africa and they simply can’t accept that another company can provide a better itinerary at a lower price - even to the point of asking for the other quote and saying this is usual practice in the industry!! ( rubbish) . Totally unprofessional behaviour. Furthermore , sending me emails knocking my choice of hotel and safari park while at the same time promoting hotels that clearly have issues as evidenced by poor ratings on the major sites

I use another well known travel provider that actually provide high quality at a decent price

Audley are simply interested in selling the highest price hotels etc that give them the maximum profit rather than what is right for you

They love themselves and keep on saying nonsense such as “ I’m really pleased with what I’ve come up with and hope you are too “

They need to get real

I won’t reveal the name of the agent dealing with me as that’s probably unfair

Where do I start, a trip of a life time, with experiences and memories for all my family. Every detail of our amazing journey in Cambodia & Vietnam was exceptional. The key was the guides provided, local, knowledgable and flexible, they all became friends over our stay. Engaging in the culture, experiencing life from food to travel, to luxury and amazing people. I would like to thank Mark Hotham for creating such special trip with many memories, to all the guides, Sophea, Tien & Tan and the drivers. Will I be booking another trip with Audley - yes, my only problem is what location

We were planning a special family holiday in Thailand to celebrate our Golden Wedding anniversary. We were a party of 11, coming from the UK and Australia at slightly different times.
Mark Hotham at Audley Travel helped us to put together the holiday of a lifetime. He helped us through the complexity of different start dates, advised on a suitable hotel and arranged a terrific trip to the Elephant Hills camp in the jungle.
The arrangements worked splendidly, the hotel in Khao Lak was first class and the Elephant Hills trip was magical.
Nothing was ever too much trouble for Mark and every effort was made to deliver the holiday we were looking for.
We have already recommended Audley travel to our friends and they will be our first choice of travel agency from now on.

This was our first time using Audley to organise a holiday for us and Ewan did a simply fantastic job. From the very first contact call, where we explained what we hoped to see and do, to wishing us 'Bon voyage' as we stepped on to the plane, Ewan was always there, helping and guiding. He selected exactly the sort of hotels and experiences we were looking for as well as the flights and car hire in one seamless operation. We will definitely be using Audley again !

Optional Activities

Spa Facilities

Although not extensive, the lovely little spa offers a range of massage treatments, facials, body exfoliation and reflexology. It also offers manicures and pedicures. For spiritual wellbeing there is also a deep meditation course available, held in the adjacent library.

Activities, diving & excursions

The Inn has a large infinity pool and offers complimentary non-motorized water sports including snorkeling, kayaking and laser sailing.

There are also two tennis courts and if you want to play golf, there are two 18 hole championship golf courses in Cedar Valley or Jolly Harbour. The resort has corporate membership at Cedar Valley so hotel guests don't have to pay green fees there.

Kenty, the head gardener, offers regular tours of the garden which many guests say on their return are a 'must' as he really knows his stuff and has plenty of great stories to tell.

Although there is no dive center at the hotel, the hotel or our local operator can advise on suitable dive operators.

Antigua provides some excellent diving opportunities as the island is surrounded by coral reefs, walls and shipwrecks. The southern and eastern coasts of Antigua are surrounded by shelves providing ideal conditions for spectacular shallow diving and snorkeling. You have the chance to see colorful corals, tropical fish, lobster, stingrays, barracudas and turtles.

Accommodations

Accommodations: Montepelier Plantation & Beach Sat in the shadow of Nevis peak, Montpelier Plantation & Beach is built around one of the islands 18th century sugar plantations. An important piece of Nevis history, Horatio Nelson married Fanny Nesbit, the niece of the President of Nevis, under the boughs of a silk cotton tree in the hotel’s grounds. Once one of the richest plantations in the Caribbean, it was left derelict until the 1960s when it was converted into a luxurious boutique hotel. Historical features have been incorporated into the hotel including the sugar mill itself - now a fine-dining restaurant. It’s run by the Hoffman family, a welcoming presence on site, and is part of the reputed Relais and Chateaux group.

Rooms

The hotel’s 28 rooms and suites are elegantly furnished and well equipped with air-conditioning, a ceiling fan, flat screen TV, iPod docking station, minibar and a private balcony or terrace.

Beach Cabana Room

There are just four Beach Cabana Rooms, which are located right on the beach. Although these rooms are smaller than the suites, with a much simpler decor, they are often in high demand due to their beachfront location.

Deluxe Junior Suite

These suites are very spacious at 60 sq m. Set within two storys, plantation style buildings located within the gardens they offer an elegant decor with a heritage feel including wooden floors and canopy beds.

Junior Suite

Offering a generous 40 sq m of space, these suites are located in the gardens, set back from the beach in two story, plantation style buildings.

The suites have a beautiful heritage feel with mahogany wood floors, canopy beds and shutters. The ground floor suites have a large veranda leading out to the gardens while the first floor suites feature a large terrace/balcony.

Meals Included

The Terrace Restaurant, set on the hillside overlooking the gardens and English Harbour, offers a beautiful setting for alfresco candlelit dining. Adjacent to the restaurant, the cozy Stone Bar, full of memorabilia from Antigua’s maritime past, is perfect for a pre-dinner cocktail.

Breakfast and lunch is served at The Reef Bar & Restaurant down by the beach, which offers a more casual ambience.

If you want to dine outside the hotel, there are plenty of restaurants at Nelson’s Dockyard complex, which is ten minutes by taxi. Please note that many of Nelson's Dockyard's outlets close in the low season so we'd advise calling ahead or asking the advice of the hotel.
