** Property Cited as a Top Budget Hotel by Two Travel Industry Publications **
Supporting its positioning as an affordable boutique property, Oualie Beach Resort on Nevis won “Best Budget Hotel” for the second year in a row in the 2nd Annual Caribbean Travel & Leisure’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2011. It was also named one of “20 Awesome Beachfront Hotels Under $200” in the February 2012 issue of Caribbean Travel + Life magazine, effectively making it a twofold winner.
“We’re thrilled to receive both of these distinctions from recognized Caribbean outlets,” said John Yearwood, Managing Director of Oualie Beach Resort. “They reaffirm that Oualie delivers quality and value at an affordable price level while simultaneously raising awareness for Nevis as an accessible Caribbean vacation option for a wider range of travel budgets.”
For years, Oualie Beach Resort has been promoting itself as Nevis’ premiere affordable accommodations choice. A full-service boutique property that is family-owned and operated, it offers many amenities typical of larger hotels while maintaining friendly, individualized service and a sense of community that’s within the means of more vacationers.
Situated on a sandy beach on the picturesque island of Nevis, Oualie Beach Resort is a uniquely charming, family-owned boutique hotel designed to appeal to travelers seeking a laid-back, personalized experience. The property’s management is passionately eco-friendly and employs sustainable tourism practices including solar water heaters, low energy lighting, water saving techniques and community development initiatives.
Oualie’s 32 spacious guest rooms and suites are nestled within 1- or 2-story Caribbean cottages, each with outstanding views of the property, beach and Caribbean Sea. Accommodations are well appointed and feature covered front porches complete with authentic planter’s chairs, white ceramic tiled floors, four poster mahogany beds and invitingly cushioned furniture. Wireless internet access is complimentary in-room, on the beach and throughout the property.
When not exploring the island, guests can enjoy numerous activities on property, including snorkeling, sailing, kayaking, spa treatments, mountain biking, scuba diving, or simply relaxing in a hammock or lounge chair on the beach. Guests may dine in a casual open-air ambience at the Oualie Restaurant on tempting Caribbean fusion cuisine prepared by Culinary Institute of America Chef Michael Henville, the reigning “Top Chef” in St. Kitts and Nevis. The Federation’s only 5-Star PADI dive operator, Scuba Safaris, is also based at Oualie Beach Resort.
