Ottley's is suck a great combination of enjoyable elements. Firstly, you will discover the beauty of the grounds and buildings. The garden is gorgeous and the views of the atlantic ocean magnificent. The well maintained colonial buildings were very charming and romatic. Secondly, we really apprecited the attentiveness and personal approach of the oweners and all their staff. You really...

Look no further if you are considering staying on St. Kitts! This place is the best. When it comes to atmosphere, standard of service, setting, quality of food, flora and fauna.... this place wins. No, it is not the cheapest place... but you get what you pay for and more!! From the minute you arrive you really feel as though...

Dear 2006 Travelbug Thank you so much for the glowing review. Your mentions of our location, grounds, pool, your room, the cuisine, our dear staff....mean a great deal to us. Commercial resorts are great for those who are looking for that type of setting.... It is our goal to remain independent, unique and specific to beautiful and historic St Kitts-Nevis.

We spent seven nights at Ottley's this month. We came to relax, eat well, and enjoy the island. We did all three. It is more convenient to eat dinner on property, but that worked really well for us. We did a number of beach days at Shipwreck (which has fantastic food and no chair charge) and then took the free...

We chose Ottley’s based on many glowing reviews on Trip Advisor and looked forward to experiencing it ourselves. The plantation itself is fantastic and full of history. The grounds are well maintained and the food is expensive, but very good. It is relaxing, quiet, and tranquil. The staff is very pleasant and welcoming. Our room had a small plunge pool...

It's going to be hard to do justice to the experience we had here at Ottley's. Somehow, five stars doesn't seem enough. We knew we wanted to go to the Caribbean on honeymoon, but after browsing pages of beach-resorts we thought we would like something a bit quieter, where we could spend time on our own as newlyweds.

Ottley's Plantation Inn left us feeling we'd seen an authentic restored plantation, unlike so many other places that call themselves plantations on St. Kitts & Nevis. We had stayed at four different properties during our tour of St. Kitts & Nevis and viewed several others, so we had plenty to compare. We stayed in a deluxe room on the top...

We stayed a full week in late May and early June and virtually had the resort to ourselves. May is a slow period for the island which worked out fine for us as we were looking for some R&R.

We stayed at Ottley's for a week just as the season slowed so there were very few guests. It's an amazing place, beautifully looked after, great staff. If it was next to the sea it would be 100% perfect in every way - the lovely spring water pool is a close second though. Possibly one of the nicest pools I've...
