More details

A la carte breakfast is usually included.


Look for the rustic ‘Pick Me’ signs on the mango, banana and other citrus trees dotting the grounds tempting you to pluck ripe fruit directly from the source. Or, venture out with chefs on a guided foraging excursion for herbs and produce for the day’s meals. Prefer to leave the gathering to someone else? A crate of fresh produce will be delivered to your room every morning.

Please note

Our favourite rooms

If an outdoor shower sets your heart racing, then you’ll truly be wooed by the al fresco porcelain claw foot soaking tub framed by vintage mirrors and set on the private wide-plank porch of the King Guesthouse. Of course, you could opt for that same sprawling ocean-gazing suite with a private infinity pool for even more amorous aquatic endeavors.


With a generous number of sunloungers on deck, there’s no need to wake up early to stake your spot beside the heated infinity-edge pool and hot tub. Although, with the flawless ocean-facing panoramas, you might race to be the first one out there to snap a few sunrise shots.


Tucked behind a curtain of elephant-ear sized fronds in an ancient mango grove you’ll discover the aptly named Mango Walk spa. Listen to monkeys chattering above you as you sink into a massage inspired by the vitamin-packed fruits and medicinal herbs all around you.

Packing tips

The dense green backdrop means you may encounter creepy crawlies, so don’t leave home without your bug spray (an organic one, of course).


Despite some pebbly pathways and steep inclines on the grounds, there are wheelchair-accessible walkways and ramps throughout. Although not on property, transportation is provided to the hotel’s beach club at the public beach.


All ages are welcome, however the surrounding terrain is too steep in areas for prams or wobbly-footed toddlers. Kids 13 and older with an interest in watersports, hiking or the culinary academy on the resort’s organic farm, will be the happiest campers.


Dedicated locavores take note: everything that passes your lips is either from the organic farm on-site or locally sourced from farmers, ranchers and fisherman on St Kitts or nearby islands. Green-friendly practices such as the use of solar power throughout the resort, green cleaning products and recycled paper products are in place. Bikes and electric golf carts on loan for exploring the lush grounds and golf greens.

Top Table

Snag a cosy candlelit table for two with that drop-dead gorgeous seascape for eye candy at the Kitchen’s outdoor terrace.

Dress Code

Smart tennis and golf togs or swimsuits by day, and the latest designer resort wear – crisp linens and breezy dresses – by night.

Hotel restaurant

The hotel has three, and all share a commitment to seasonal, sustainable cuisine by dreaming up dishes using fruits and vegetables harvested from the organic farm on-site, the catch-of-the-day from local fisherman or meat from nearby farmers. International fare with a West African accent is on the daily-changing menu at the Kitchen, the hotel’s main eatery. Located in the Great House, it commands uninterrupted views from the tiered terraces and the interiors are styled with relics from the island’s days as a top rum and sugar producer along with modern touches: lofted ceilings, exposed beams, a grand fireplace and sturdy communal farm tables. Pop by the Golden Lemon Beach Bar, a causal stand serving the day’s catch and tropical cocktails at the hotel’s private beach club. Don’t miss the communal open-air dining experience set dramatically in the middle of the farm at The Terrace, where you’ll feast on a 12-course tapas style tasting menu. 

Hotel bar

Cool off post-sail with a rum-inflected cocktail at the Golden Lemon Beach Bar, a casual Caribbean-style shack at the beach club. The refinery-chic decor and design of the Mill pays homage to St Kitts days as ‘Sugar City’. The only industry here today though is the mixing of specialty cocktails using herbs and fruit from the farm.  

Last orders

The Kitchen is open for all meals 7am – 11pm, at the beach the Golden Lemon Beach Bar serves lunch and snacks 11am – 5pm and book a dinner reservation at the Terrace 7pm – 11pm.

Room service

Several golf carts have been outfitted as roving kitchens – hello, boutique food trucks – and chefs will motor over to your room on request to prepare snacks and small meals.

Robert L Bradshaw International Airport (SKB) is a 30-minute drive from the hotel and services direct flights from major cities on several major airlines including British Airways, American Airlines and Delta.


With transfers included (in a shiny Mercedes, to boot) to and from the airport, you could leave the driving to someone else. However, if you’d like your own wheels for exploring the island, there are several car-hire desks at the airport and free valet parking at the hotel.

Worth getting out of bed for

Surrounded by hundreds of tropical acres and just a 10-minute drive from the beach, Belle Mont Farm offers the best of both Caribbean worlds – rich jungle flora and balmy ocean waters. Acclimate by taking a guided tour of the organic farm with the chef as he gathers menu inspiration for that night’s dinner or with one of the farmers who tend the 400 mouth-watering acres. Set out on a meditative walk (plucking fruit from the trees as you amble), a heartrate-raising fitness walk or set out on one of the bikes on loan for a spin through sugar cane fields, electric-green pastures and fruit groves.

For a more directed stroll, head to Irie Fields, the hotel’s par 71 18-hole golf course where you’ll encounter edible plants and fruit trees if feeling peckish on the links. Get in some cardio with a personal training session at the fitness centre or challenge your partner to a match at one of the two tennis courts.

Bike or hop a ride down to the black sand beach to swim, snorkel, kayak, sail or take a guided fishing trip and catch your lunch.

The hotel is loaded with activities and plenty of ways to relax, too, so you might not feel the need to leave the grounds. However, local guided tours can be arranged for everything from scuba diving and a trek up Mt Liamuiga or a visit to a Batik factory

Anonymous review

'Every farm needs a potting shed,' the driver tells me as we finally make it up the very long and bumpy track from the main road. Seriously, it’s a very long drive – far away from anywhere – but there’s a good reason for that: once you arrive at Belle Mont Farm, you’re in a rainforest half way up a volcano.

The potting shed in question – all the way up at the top of Kittitian Hill on the northern tip of St Kitt’s – is a rather modest name for what’s really an enormous beautiful timber structure. It wouldn’t be out of place in the Royal Academy of Art’s courtyard. Without walls, its breezy interior is lit up by the sunlight streams through, shimmering on the leaves of the iconic tree growing inside (it’s the first time I’ve ever seen a tree dwarfed by a ‘shed’). I notice the Clusia major, dubbed the ‘autograph tree’, has the signatures of previous guests adorning every leaf, like notches on a bedpost. I’m busy working out what lewd comment to graffiti across one when I notice that Mrs Smith is already being led away to the golf cart that will ferry us to reception. I naively thought we’d already arrived, but no: there’s the Indiana Jones-esque trail to take on first, complete with hanging vines, tropical birds and monkeys – yes, real, live monkeys who eat everything (with all the groomed vegetation on offer, I reckon they call this place their Shangri-La). I feel six years old again as our driver fires along the old volcano path up through what feels like Jurassic Park, minus the killer dinosaurs. It’s brilliant.

At reception, we’re greeted by a lovely lady offering cold towels and a gentleman serving delicious sweetened bitter-orange drinks, freshly made on the farm… and when I say freshly made, I mean they literally grew the oranges. Belle Mont Farm does luxe sustainability like nowhere else: the food that’s served in the restaurant is grown on the land, and the restaurant itself was built with stone quarried from the estate. That might make you think it’d be a little rough around the edges, but far from it – the New England-style interior makes for a bright, chic setting, and from reception you can spy the stylish swimming pool, complete with its sunken bar, gym and spa. 

A short golf buggy ride later, we reach our bedroom – well, our guest houses: each one is your very own self-contained chapel of serenity. Inside, the New England theme continues with a soaring vaulted ceiling and an elegant bed built for a king. The minibar’s stocked with (free) wine, and there’s an iPad at hand to help you access whatever you need while on-site. The showstopper, however, has to be the view at the end of the bed: gigantic doors open to reveal a private infinity pool that overlooks several neighbouring Caribbean islands and beyond, all the way to the horizon. It’s an incredible sight.

Each guest house has an outdoor bathroom, enclosed by banana trees and foliage. The his-and-hers sinks are a nice touch, but the shower and freestanding bathtub are fantastic (ours could’ve used a few more trees, in my opinion – I found myself waving to a fellow guest on a stroll as I brushed my teeth, and the toilet could be a little breezy late at night).

Dining at Belle Mont verges on a religious experience, with meals served in the Kitchen restaurant; if the guest houses are the chapels, then this surely is the cathedral. Vast doors and windows open out at every angle, making you feel as though you’re not actually indoors at all. The only problem is you have to choose between views of the sleeping volcano or the ocean… a first-world problem if ever there way. All the farm-grown food is delicious, and Mrs Smith’s only complaint was directed towards me: I failed to book our stay over a Sunday, so we missed the weekly Champagne Brunch with lobster.

With food sourced on-site, no trip to Belle Mont Farm would be complete without a farm tour, conducted by Tarifi (a man so laid back I swear he must put sticks in his pants to keep him upright). He drives us first through the edible golf course – it’s currently nine holes but when finished, he tells us, you’ll be able to pick mangos, pineapples and anything else you see growing on a bush or tree as you shoot par. Tarifi then stops to pick up a knife-wielding man. Mrs Smith is already halfway out the door when the newcomer, Winston, laughs his head off and tells us it’s to cut fruit for us to eat. As they walk us through the near-endless nurseries where they’re growing enough food for what seems like the entire planet, we sample sour berries – yes, they did make my face contort like I’d just been kicked in the knackers – papaya and custard apples. If you’ve never eaten a custard apple, they taste exactly like their name, and are delicious. Both farmers became giddy with excitement when they spotted one of their plants growing something new; any farm would be lucky to have staff so enthusiastic. 

Belle Mont Farm’s story has just begun, and what they have planned for the future sounds incredible. For now, though, the first-class staff on hand – from the friendly farmers to our housekeeping superstar, Glenda – are a credit to the paradise we were thrilled to temporarily call home.
