New Year, New You: Escape to Nevis to Truly Switch Off
As we near the end of January, this month has been a time for reflecting on the past year and trying to kick some of those bad habits that we’ve brought along with us. Whether that means spending too much time in front of a screen or not enough time in the great outdoors, there are so many ways the chaos and fast-paced nature of life can leave us feeling burnt out, stressed and in some cases – at breaking point.
When it comes to some much-needed R&R, there are few places better than the Caribbean island of Nevis. With breath-taking beaches and stunning mountain views, the lush and peaceful natural environment will leave you feeling rested and at ease with the world once more – allowing you the rare opportunity to ‘just be’ and switch off.
Jadine Yarde, CEO of the Nevis Tourism Authority says: “It’s been a challenging two years and we’re all deserving of some much needed rest and relaxation. Here in Nevis we’re proud of our superior health and wellbeing offering that enables travellers to truly quiet the chaos of modern life. Travel has changed and so have our requirements and wellness is at the front of traveller’s minds. A holiday in Nevis will ensure the chance to rest, reset and relax, with the traveller and their wellness as the priority.”
From star gazing into the night to creating a moment of mindfulness on the beach, Nevis offers travellers the opportunity to reboot and focus on their wellbeing. Read on for the most relaxing and restorative ways to spend your time in Nevis in 2022…
Benefit from the healing powers of the Nevis hot springs
While it might sound like an old wives tale, many local Nevisians believe a dip in the island’s geothermal pools can be just what the doctor ordered. Thought to have therapeutic benefits, the hot springs – which reach up to 42°C – have seen travellers for centuries pay a visit in the hope that they too may feel the power of nature’s natural healer.
Take part in an outdoor yoga session
While a yoga session has long been tried and tested as a sure-fire way to feel great, moving your weekly session to the beautiful island of Nevis is truly transformative. Whether you choose to take a class on the breath-taking Pinney’s Beach or nestled in the tropical jungle beneath the awe-inspiring Nevis Peak, a restorative yoga session out in the fresh air with the sounds of birds and crickets as your playlist will help you leave the stresses of modern life behind.
Gaze into the night sky at the spa at Four Seasons Resort
When it comes to relaxing, nothing ticks all the boxes quite like a spa day. And at the Four Seasons Resort in Nevis, you’ll be transported into a tropical oasis with your everyday woes soon becoming a thing of the past. Try the spa under the stars package – couples are guided along a torch-lit pathway to their own private world of relaxation and romance on the candle-lit Sala deck, setting the perfect atmosphere for stargazing. A celebratory bottle of champagne awaits, while the spa’s volcanic-stone whirlpool, Japanese-inspired cold plunge pool, and outdoor garden are available for their private enjoyment. Guests can further enhance their romantic evening with a candle-lit dinner.
Treat yourself to a massage on the beach
Nestled under a shady palm tree and listening to the sounds of waves crashing to shore, a massage on the beach is what dreams are made of. The aptly named Chill Spa at Oualie Beach Resort will be able to provide just that. With a wide range of treatments to choose from, relaxing on the beach has never been easier.
Take a moment for some mindfulness
While mediation can be hard art to master, with Nevis as your backdrop it will become a whole lot easier. One of the best ways to soak up the present moment is by watching a sunrise or sunset. For some panoramic views to die for, take your meditation to new heights atop Saddle Hill, or relax along Lovers Beach with glistening views of nearby St. Kitts in the distance.
Eat the rainbow and feel energised
Known for its farm to table cuisine, the Nevisian diet is based on healthy servings of fresh fruit and vegetables, freshly caught seafood, organically raised meat and poultry – all produced on farms dotted across the island. This verdant island is blessed with bountiful harvests of a variety of produce – from vitamin packed vegetables including green bananas, plantain, eggplant, pumpkin, and squash; to leafy salad greens, spinach and kale, along with tomatoes and bell peppers; to seasonings and spices such as onions, ginger, scallions, and herbs with healing properties. And of course, there are some 44 varieties of mangoes, the pride of Nevis.
