Getting to St. Kitts and Nevis

The once-arduous journey to the Four Seasons Resort Nevis, home to a picturesque mountain course designed by Robert Trent Jones Jr., is now simpler thanks to nonstop flights from New York and Atlanta to the neighboring Caribbean island of St. Kitts. American Airlines has begun direct service between JFK and St. Kitts on Wednesdays and Sundays (round-trip fares from $548; visit aa.com). And Delta now flies to and from Atlanta every Saturday (from $774; delta.com). The new routes eliminate layovers in Miami and San Juan.

A Desert Classic Restored

Opened in 1936 as Scottsdale’s original resort hotel, the Camelback Inn has undergone a $50 million makeover. The historic main building has been rebuilt—with its original adobe bricks—partly to make room for a branch of BLT Steak, chef Laurent Tourondel’s celebrated New York City bistro. Both BLT Steak and the more traditional Rita’s Kitchen now open onto a patio planted with organic gardens and fire pits. The resort’s two golf courses remain scenic and fun.
