For Nisbet Plantation, this year marks three decades of ownership by hotelier David Dodwell Sr. Receiving the 2019 Hotel of the Year Award is a welcomed acknowledgement of the proud hospitality offered by the ladies and gentlemen of Nisbet Plantation as they are affectionately known.

Long Service Award winner Dan Perkins can remember the early days of Nisbet Plantation as the world now knows it. Much to everyone’s delight, while the Avenue of the Palms, Great House, accommodations, grounds and the warm Nevisian hospitality remain timeless, the collection of stories continues to grow.

Nisbet Plantation continues to be honored and humbled by the support everyday of our talented staff and loyal guests. Here’s to many more years!
