Ahh, Ottley's! What a perfect piece of paradise! Absolutely, the most private, luxurious place on the island! Nancy and Marty (and family) are genuine, caring individuals with a great love for people and nature. Their hard work and vision has paid was once an 18th century sugar plantation is now an award winning Caribbean hotel. Ottley's provides a beautiful retreat from the worries of the world, as it is it's majestically positioned on 35 acres of hillside, among meticulously manicured grounds overlooking the sea.
Choose from a Standard room in the Stone Cottage, a Deluxe room in the Great House, or a two-room Royal Suite Cottage (the master bedroom, also available as a Supreme room, features a Jacuzzi and a private ocean view plunge pool), all of which ooze with style and charm. Spacious and well appointed, each with tiled floors, heavy Brazilian walnut louvered shutters, air conditioning and ceiling fans, minibars, room safes, coffee maker, blow dryer, private baths, iron and ironing board, direct-dial telephones and balconies/patios with breathtaking views of the mountains or sea. The open-air atmosphere of the rooms in the Great House and the luxurious charm of the cottages are highlights you won't soon forget. The special touch of fresh flowers and the noticeable attention to detail perfects the experience at Ottley's.
The Royal Palm restaurant is superb. As it is nestled in the stone walls of the sugar factory remains, it has earned its reputation as the best restaurant on the island, as well as the Fielding's Five Star Restaurant Award. The Royal Palm restaurant features a tasteful cuisine that reflects the many cultures of the Caribbean. This gourmet dining experience is a must regardless of where you stay on the island.
Activities are limited to natural sort of things at Ottley's. You can spend the day lounging by the 65-foot, spring fed pool bordered partly by stone walls, greenery and a delightful pool bar or you can hop on the complimentary daily shuttle to one of St. Kitts' beaches. Newly added are a hard-surface tennis court and a croquet lawn, both with breathtaking views of ocean, mountain and cane fields. Take a romantic stroll through the tropical gardens or explore the rainforest. Check with Marty, as he is the resident rainforest trail expert.

And for all your pampering needs, Ottley's also boasts spa services in the new massage cottage, overhanging the rainforest ravine.
