Set at the base of the glorious Mount Liamiuga, approximately 5 miles north of Basseterre, this quaint 18th-century former sugar plantation sprawls across 35 acres of St Kitts' northeastern coast. Ottley's touts all the amenities of an authentic Caribbean inn: The 23 rooms are filled with wicker and mahogany furnishings, locally crafted artwork and private balconies or patios. Outside, guests have access to pristine tennis courts and a tranquil 65-foot pool (not to mention the Mango Orchard Spa). When hunger sets in, retreat to the intimate Royal Palm Restaurant, which serves up flavorful international entrees with a side of striking ocean views. Despite Ottley's picturesque surroundings, recent guests bemoan its location removed from the island's beaches.

Critic Reviews



You're treated like a beloved relative rather than a commercial guest at this quintessential Caribbean hotel, formerly a sugar plantation, at the foot of Mt. Liamuiga.

Veering off the main road in the scruffy village of Ottley's, a meandering driveway ends at this immaculately restored vestige of colonial times.
