Set on a thousand foot up in the rain forested hills of northern St Kitts, Belle Mont Farm strives to be a game-changer in the world of sustainable luxury. Built and staffed by islanders, it sits on a 400-acre organic farm, with uplifting views across to the neighbouring island of St Eustatius. The 84 wooden guesthouses come in a grand, Caribbean-colonial style with a majestic four-poster bed, private plunge pool and outdoor bath. Activities include mountain hikes and golf (on a pioneering organic course), but the most compelling reason to visit is the ground-breaking cuisine served in The Kitchen restaurant. Here, the French chef is not only rethinking ways to use local ingredients, but he’s also teaching Kittitians how to follow his innovative style. The result is a banquet of farm-to-table treats, including a delightful tropical breakfast served in the nursery gardens. Breakfast is served in your room, a tray of delights that might feature freshly-squeezed watermelon juice, coconut bread with cinnamon, hot frittata and yoghurt with Nevisian honey. In addition, there is a daily box of farm-fresh fruit delivered to your room.
