Hailed as the Queen of the Caribbean, a luxury St Kitts and Nevis holiday offers visitors a magnificent blend of lush rainforest, exotic wildlife, long stretches of golden sand and old-world charm.
Many of the hotels are converted plantation houses, which fits perfectly with the island's unique identity. Life on nevis is quiet and leisurely, making it a perfect contrast to some of the larger, more cosmopolitan destinations in the region and ideal for a two or three-centre itinerary.
