The Four Seasons Resort Nevis in the Caribbean has announced it will embark on a multimillion-dollar enhancement project this year. The multi-phase renovation to the 350-acre property will kick off in April with a redesign of all 196 guestrooms and suites. Preserving the architectural and design integrity of the original building exteriors, the room renovations will have a cleaner and more modern look.
“Built on a former sugar and coconut plantation dating to the late 1790s, we wanted to maintain Nevis’ quaint and intimate reputation as an untouched Caribbean destination,” says Todd-Avery Lenahan, founder of TAL Design Studios. "The refreshed interior design is not meant to be a complete overhaul.”
For instance, in the rooms, the new wall covers reference the British botanical patterns favored by the fabrics of 19th century England, rendered in a contemporary pale sea foam green. The multi-colored geometric carpet that will be used is inspired by Caribbean stained-glass windows, and the desk chairs are inspired by the flora and fauna of Nevis, particularly the green vervet monkeys, with their images printed on the seat back cushions.
Following the start of the room renovations, the resort will also begin a reimagining of its Great House and lobby areas, as well as its food and beverage outlets. All guest rooms and suites are expected to be completed by November. The resort is located on the western coast of the Caribbean island of Nevis, sister island to St. Kitts.
