#1) The Kuesch family were absolutely wonderful hosts, as were the fine staff at Ottley''s. When we left, it felt like leaving family behind.
#2) Dining was wonderful: The ancient sugar mill has been converted into a lounge/dining room along with the adjoining swimming pool. Really charming, and wonderful food!
#3) Our cottage was absolutely beautiful. I particularly liked hanging out by the plunge pool. While we were there, a revival was occurring. A tent had been erected aongside the old church. Listening to the ancient hymms rockin'' through the valley added greatly to the experience.
#4) Ottley''s is huge. We took trails right behind the hotel that were a good introduction to the local jungle. Look for Button''s Garden. See if you can find Button himself. Tell him Pianoman says hi.
Ottley''s Plantation is just a wonderful place to nest while exploring St. Kitts.
