Upscale eats and the writing is on the… tree! St. Kitts Restaurant Week Day 4

For our fourth day in St. Kitts, we were treated to an incredible meal at the luxurious mountain retreat, Belle Mont Farm. Situated on Kittian Hill, this working farm of 400 acres has stunning views of the Ocean as well Mount Liamuiga, the highest point on the island at 3792 feet.

The property was designed by Bill Bensley, who also created the Four Seasons Tented Camp in Chiang Rai, Thailand. Every detail is perfect and the stone was quarried locally and the team trained local residents to become stone carvers. Community involvement is key whether the people working on site or the guests. Everyone can become a food forager learning about whatever fruit and vegetables are in season as well as picking them and eating them! I want to return for the famous farm dinner, hopefully on a full moon!

Our lunch included farm grown Tomato Salad with coconut mozzarella, Dasheen Risotto and fresh from the sea Mahi Mahi with Lime and coconut foam, and farm chicken jambonette with breadfruit chowder. Not only was it an incredible meal, but we also sat outside which was a gallery of views of the mountain and of Bill Bensley’s paintings.

I loved the pool, the villas and all the amenities. In your upscale villa, you do not have a television but a large screen that drops down movie style and is controlled by your personal iPad. You can choose to completely detach from busy city life and be drawn into the farm. I drew my name on a leaf when I left, when you return they will find your leaf for you!

After our views from Kittian Hill, we were treated to a stunning vista from the seventh floor of the St. Kitts Marriott. I really enjoyed staying at the Marriott with my large balcony facing the three pools and the ocean. For our last night on the island, we returned to Salt Plage to enjoy the music, food and happening vibe. What an amazing first visit to St. Kitts!
