Back to School on Nevis

The beginning of fall indicates the start of a new school year, and many generous guests have ensured school children throughout Nevis are prepared for a successful season.

With our partnership through Pack for a Purpose, guests can purchase items from the school wish lists, pack them for their Nevis trip, and leave the donations at the resort. To everyone’s delight, we collected four boxes of school supplies and books throughout the summer.

Our General Manager Tim Thuell, his wife Tina, and Reservations Manager Leonora visited three nearby schools to deliver the donations. The pictures below perfectly capture the children’s warm spirits, gratitude and joy.  Read More

Guests Help Nevis Students Thrive through Pack for a Purpose

In 1999, Nisbet Plantation “adopted” a local school, Violet O Jeffers-Nicholls Primary School (VOJN). Now, its students read two grade levels higher and Nevis maintains a 98% literacy rate. With school children ranging from kindergarten to sixth grade, VOJN does an impeccable job of upholding high standards for its 72 students. The school motto is “only the best is good enough,” and the dedicated kids and faculty fulfill this expectation. Read More

Update after Hurricane Maria: Nisbet Plantation to Reopen Oct. 4th

Hurricane Irma and Hurricane Maria recently passed by Nevis. Although enduring strong winds and rain, we are pleased to report everyone at Nisbet Plantation is safe. Fortunately, the Great House and cottages remain in good condition with only a few missing shingles. However, Sea Breeze Beach Bar, some decking and vegetation all need work before we can welcome guests.

Nisbet Plantation will therefore reopen on Wednesday, Oct. 4th. We do not wish to inconvenience guests while we make necessary repairs. At Nisbet, we treat every guest like family and are currently contacting those with reservations between now and Oct. 3rd to reschedule their visit. Guests scheduled to arrive prior to Oct. 4th should contact their airline for information on moving travel dates. Read More
