Travel News: Eco-Friendly–and Wallet-Friendly–Luxury

21 Mar

For over 20 years, the Four Seasons Resort Nevis, one of the Caribbean’s most luxurious properties, has been a resort most others look to for inspiration.  The waterfront stunner, located on the volcanic shores of Pinney’s Beach, was named  “Top Family-Friendly Hotel in the Caribbean” and “Best Service in the Caribbean” by Travel + Leisure.

A favorite feature of travelers is their commitment to the local environment: Pinney’s Beach is a nesting habitat for three endangered species of sea turtles, including the critically endangered hawksbill.  Four Season Resort Nevis  partners with Nevis Turtle Group and the Sea Turtle Conservancy to promote education and preservation of the sea turtles.  Resort guests can sponsor turtle adoptions and can join forces with the Nevis Turtle Group to help protect and mark turtle nests during the night-time turtle vigils.   Encouraging education and child-friendly conservation, the resort’s complimentary Kids for All Seasons program offer a weekly Sea Turtle Camp day for kids.

Adults remain happy as well, as Four Seasons Resort Nevis’ Executive Chef, Andreas Donnerbauer, sources the majority of his ingredients from local fishermen and sustainable farms.  Environmentally-conscious foodies enjoy his “Farm to Fork” menu, including Cades Bay tomato and avocado salad, Carib beer-battered flying fish, and ground provisions roti (root veggies).

WHY BOOK NOW? Why not?! In addition to saving the environment, now you can save money on your stay: Now through September 4th,  Four Seasons Resort Nevis is offering a third night free when booking two consecutive paid nights, valid on all room types and villas for resort stays between April 15th and September 9th, subject to availability.  Rates per night start at $445.  For reservations or more information, call (869) 469-6238 or visit www.fourseasons.com/nevis.
