In celebration of Alexander Hamilton’s 267th birthday on January 11, 2022, Four Seasons Resort Nevis is once again inviting guests to take a trip through history as they experience the birthplace of one of the United States’ most notable Founding Fathers.
With rates starting at just over USD 12,000 per night*, the revamped Alexander Hamilton package includes a USD 1,000 per room Resort credit that can be used for a wide variety of dining, activities and experiences. A private rum pairing dinner, movie night with dinner under the stars, exclusive Hamilton-style portrait painting session and a bottle of the Resort’s exclusive Crowned Monkey Rum for guests to take home are also a part of this unique experience.
Additionally, now that “Vacation in Place” requirements have been lifted in St. Kitts and Nevis, guests will also have the opportunity to explore Nevis on an historical island tour that is also included in the package. Guided by an historical storyteller, the tour will take guests to visit Hamilton’s birthplace, located just 10 minutes from the Resort in the heart of Charlestown. The two-storey building overlooking the Charlestown Harbour is called the Hamilton House. It houses one of the island’s two museums on the first floor. The second floor is the meeting room for the Nevis House of Assembly. The stone building was built around 1680 but was destroyed in an earthquake in 1840 and restored in 1983. Hamilton’s original home is also located on the property after being restored due to the same earthquake.
“Nevis might be a little unknown island at the edge of the Caribbean, but it’s filled with so much history,” says Yvette Thomas-Henry, Regional Vice President and General Manager. “Not much has changed with Charlestown since those times, so you can really feel the legacy of what once was when Hamilton was living on the island.”
Not only will guests get to experience a piece of Nevisian and American history with this package, but they’ll also get to stay in a suite inspired by and named after Nevis’ most famous native son. In the recently redesigned one-bedroom suite, the décor is light, clean and fresh, while preserving the humble charm of Nevis with hints of Caribbean notes from the botanical wallpaper in the bedroom to the uniquely designed chairs that feature the island’s ambassador, the green vervet monkey.
Guests will come to find that the 1,761 square foot (164 square metre) suite is an inviting space ideal for entertaining – hosting family and friends for an intimate dinner around the table with seating for up to eight or unwinding outdoors on the expansive patio for a nightcap while enjoying the Caribbean breeze and sweet sounds of Nevis.
While Hamilton’s story may have begun on the small island of Nevis, the impact he made in US history made him a household name. And, this winter, guests of Four Seasons Hotels in Boston, Baltimore and Washington, DC will also have the opportunity to walk in the footsteps of Alexander Hamilton in their respective cities. Four Seasons Hotel Boston will be hosting two “Nevis Nights” as part of its ongoing Weekend Hospitality offerings at Sottovento Coffee, featuring Nevis-inspired specialty cocktails and bites on January 14 and 15, 2022.
Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore will be featuring a Nevis-inspired Spa enhancement and a cocktail special via in-room dining throughout the entire month of January 2022 as well as an Annapolis Day Trip highlighting a customised walking tour of notable sites; and through the end of March 2022, Four Seasons Hotel Washington, DC will be serving a specialty Nevisian cocktail at BOURBON STEAK and a Nevisian-themed treatment enhancement at the Spa for those seeking a winter escape. Finally, fans all around the world can also enjoy a bespoke, Hamilton-inspired Spotify playlist curated by BELLOSOUND.
