An idilic Caribbean island, a hidden hotel and the lush of tropical plants around you. Definitely on my wish list.
This place has been conceived for the pleasure of your senses.
I came across this hotel while reading the Garden Design magazine. I found an article by Paul O’Donell about this picturesque place and the story behind. It is not a chain hotel or anything similar but a very personal project from Helen and Bryce Marden. The owners are both artists and have created this bit of paradise with their very personal use of colour.
The complex consists of different cottages and structures scattered on a slope and surrounded by the amazing garden you can see in these pictures.
The designer appointed for the gardens was Raymond Jungles, based in Florida and very well known for his subtropical native planting.
There is an item present in many pictures in the hotel website. It is the chair Vegetal, designed by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec (2008) for Vitra. I have highlighted this aspect as this is a chair I have seen in many publications and has a very interesting organic design.
Visit the website if you want to find out more about the accommodations, food and many other details, or maybe booking your own idilic visit to Nevis Island.
