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.

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.
