Reasons for trip


We just got back from The Oualie Beach Resort, Nevis West Indies. I have to say right from the start this Resort is the way the Caribbean should be. It is a laidback, no shoes, Blues, kind of place.

Arrival after a long journey, (Antigua- St Kitts- Speed boat to Nevis), at night is an adventure in itself. You are greeted with a cocktail and taken to your room, in time to shower and change for dinner. We arrived on a Tuesday night which is BBQ night, so that is even more laid back (if that's possible) than most nights.

This is not a resort for nightlife, but on a Tuesday you might be lucky as we were to enjoy the musical talents of "Jack and the Rippers" a group of American guys, who all being amateur musicians rock up and entertain with a mix of rock and west coast R'n'B. We also had the talents of one of the owners, John Yearwood, a very competent guitarist, and a fair singer to boot!

We found the staff very friendly, and they all go that extra mile for the guests, comfort and enjoyment. Special mention goes to Michelle, the friendliest of a very friendly bunch of waitresses.

If anything was slightly disappointing, it's the food. From my own view it caters for the majority, and I found if a bit bland and repetitive, however, Michelle came to our rescue with the local "Hot Pepper Sauce" which really spiced things up, and every meal after that was a joy!

The accommodation is basic West Indian style, there are some rooms on the first floor, which must have great views, we had a very nice beach front room called "Trade Winds" which had a central location half-way down the beautiful beach.

The resort has a lot of trees and foliage, which does attract insects, so take plenty of repellent, but on the plus side it also attracts Vervet Monkeys, and we spent many an afternoon watching them play in the trees, and on the ground. They are quite shy and will runaway if approached, so I'd suggest taking a telephoto lense if you have one.

We travelled all over the Island of Nevis, and found everyone we met very friendly, even in the capital, Charlestown, people were helpful and gave you space. You got the local Taxi drivers asking you if you wanted a taxi, but other than that we were not harassed at all. In fact the only time we were harassed at all was in the airport in St kitts, but even that was quite mild.

All-in-all if you want to see the Caribbean the way it was and should be, I'd recommend a trip to Oualie Beach, Nevis.
