Golden Lemon Inn & Villas

Map
Dieppe Bay, Basseterre, , St. Kitts and Nevis

The property was one of the Caribbean’s first boutique hotels, opened by Arthur Leaman in 1963 in a lush garden on the black-sand shores of Dieppe Bay. Set in a 17th-century great house, this little gem has tons of personality thanks to the owner, who has decorated the place with a collection of antiques: mahogany sideboards repurposed for bathroom sinks; bedside tables; four-poster beds; carved armoires. The seven rooms in the great house are charming, but the villas are the ones to book, with their soaring, 25-foot-high ceilings, sunken baths, and private plunge pools. Don’t miss the rum-braised beef stew and grilled lobster, served poolside by candlelight at the property’s restaurant. And expect total relaxation. There are no TV’s or radios–just plenty of black sand and coral reefs.
