Golden Rock Inn, Nevis
Saint Kitts & Nevis, West Indies
A sugar estate dating back to the early 1800’s, the boutique property of the Golden Rock Inn sits on a hundred acres stretching up the lush green slopes of Nevis Peak. Surrounded by lavish tropical gardens designed by landscape architect Raymond Jungles, the inn is a peaceful escape, deliberately lo-fi with no music, no televisions, no air-con, no noise at all except the soothing symphony of the jungle. Through the eyes of New York artists Helen and Brice Marden, Golden Rock has been thoughtfully restored and expanded into an elegant restaurant and inn, offering only eleven guest rooms with spectacular sea views towards the Caribbean islands of Antigua and Montserrat.
Convenient flights to Nevis [from Denver] were incredibly difficult to come by for less than the combined cost of a MacBook Pro and a Rolex. We had the option to either arrive to the island a day early or a day late, so in choosing to not shorten vacation, we landed on the island a day before our Four Seasons reservation began.
Although not the cheapest, Golden Rock definitely looked like a really cool option for the night. It was absolutely the most unique spot I’ve ever seen or stayed at. The Four Seasons was naturally amazing, but one night at the Golden Rock Inn was not enough…
