My husband and I just had a wonderful week at Ottley's. As many reviewers have said, it is the perfect place to unwind, surrounded by personal attention from a remarkably dedicated staff, and unsurpassed beauty. But there are a few additional things I'd like to mention. First, the fellow guests were well traveled, intelligent, and engaging, which is a plus... More

A unique atmosphere that was so different from anyplace else. The food and service were first class. The owners just lovely and so friendly. I can't imagine staying in A big resort anymore. The landscaping and rain forest were spectacular. A great place to celebrate a special time. I bet this would beca great choice for a destination wedding.

Stunning setting, you reach it up a very steep unassuming road (a track really) wondering where you are going! Fantastic gardens & views. Quite remote and about 20 mins from town centre and life, so if you want to stroll into a local bar or other restaurant this will be a nuisance as there is little within walking distance, but...

What a wonderful place! I first visited Ottley's 20 years ago and found the grounds breathtakingly beautiful and the food wonderful. Now, 20 years later, not much has changed. The views are breathtaking. (no need for TV although WiFi is available) The staff is very friendly and forthcoming. The owners and inn keeper make you feel like you are part... More

The staff, the rooms, the grounds, the food and the innkeepers were all fantastic. The staff and innkeepers went well above and beyond typical. They define the word service. And did I mention the food. Scrumptious. Do be warned no TV in room. The rainforest trail was a bonus and saw plenty of wildlife

We just returned from a four day stay at Ottley's Plantation Inn. It was nice, but there is definitely room for improvement. Our main complaint would be the value for the price. Breakfast never cost less than $50 USD for the two of us, and everything from coffee to orange juice to a small plate of fruit cost extra. The... More

We just feel that we were so fortunate in being able to slip our first, and hopefully not our last visit to St Kitts between two storms! The last one being Hurricane Sandy. It really was a fantastic place to be and our only regret was when we had to leave! The whole place feels like a beautifully run country... More
