We are feeling inspired after a wonderfully relaxing trip to St Kitts
The Grey Works have just returned from an inspirational trip to the beautiful island of St Kitts in the West Indies. We flew into Antiqua and then took a private charter plane across the Caribbean Sea to St Kitts.
Belle Mont Farm Resort
On arrival we were driven up to the lush green Kittitian Hill to the rather fabulous resort called Belle Mont Farm. I have spent a lot of time in the Caribbean, although this was my first visit to St Kitts. What struck me initially is that because the resort is nestled amongst 400 acres of fertile, lush tropical forest it felt really cool and relaxing without what can often be a punishing level of heat. The Farm is organic and sources much of it’s produce from its own land and neighbouring suppliers.
Designed by renowned architect Bill Bensley the Farm and the surrounding buildings are modelled in a Plantation Style. Think huge shutter doors, wrap around verandas and white and pale grey colour palette. It is beautifully appointed with breathtaking views and dark slate infinity pools. No expense has been spared to create a luxury environment, even the drapes, towels and linens were gorgeous.
Nothing was more beautiful than watching the sun set every evening across a pink and orange sky over the glistening ocean on the balcony of our villa. It was magical.
