Nevis

A 5-night stay for 2 at the Golden Rock Inn, Nevis.

The celebrated painter Brice Marden and his wife Helen have thoughtfully restored the Golden Rock Inn in Nevis, an intimate hilltop hideaway nestled on the slopes of Nevis Peak. From the hotel’s expansive grounds, featuring rocky gardens and vibrant bougainvillea, views stretch across the Caribbean Sea and the island’s lush jungle. Inside, the Mardens’ handiwork can be seen in pops of bold color, modern artwork and a collection of Moroccan rugs. You and a guest will enjoy a luxurious 5-night stay at the resort, where you can plunge in the fresh water pool, dine alfresco, hike, bike, or enjoy the nearby beach.
