The Hot Springs in Nevis

Nevis known for quite a few commodities, however for centuries visitors and locals scurry to the Historic Bath Village for a dip in the infamous Hot Springs. The Bath volcanic hot spring still has a good flow rate all year round, commonly known as a therapeutic spring. Nearby is the site of Bath Hotel, the first luxury hotel in the West Indies built in 1778 for the rich and famous.

Due to damages from recent hurricanes and other natural elements, the Spring House is closed. A restoration committee recently constructed an open outdoor pool for persons who seek to experience the therapeutic powers of the water. The pool constructed by the restoration committee maintains the water at the required temperature.

Situated here are five thermal baths, the source of water springs from the base of the house. As far back as memory serves us this very spring water is said to contain minerals of medicinal value and cured people with chronic rheumatism and gout who stayed at the Bath Hotel. The water temperature at the Hot Springs span from 104F to 108F, which is the reason why the Spring House was used significantly by visitors and locals alike.

Whether you are a local or a visitor, the hot spring still permits you to treat your various aches and pains by immersing your body (or feet or whatever) in the healing waters of the Bath Spring, a beneficial spa that is free of charge, once you’re not shy about bathing in an outside space…

Rum Bottle Tree in Old Road St. Kitts

There are quite a few tourist attractions in Old Road St. Kitts, however, the one that drew our attention was the old tree with rum bottles hanging from it. Pondering what the history behind it was, we came to find out its significance is in no history book but just something people decided to do.

After drinking a bottle of rum the bottle was tied to a string and hang from the tree. This has been going on for years.  It is now a tourist destination. This my friends is somewhat a sight to see.

Tell us more do you know anything about this Rum Bottle Tree?

The Romney Manor grounds have great history; there is strong evidence that they were originally the site on which Tegereman the Carib Indian Chief had his village. Romney Estate became the first estate in St. Kitts to emancipate their slaves. From humble beginnings Caribelle produced its first batik in 1974. The fact that no two pieces are ever the same makes them some of the most sought after Caribbean Treasures.  Batik is a technique of wax-resist dyeing applied to whole cloth, or cloth made using this technique. Visited by thousands each year, occasionally hosting the rich and famous, Caribelle has acquired an international reputation for fine products. Each carefully handcrafted item is as individual as you are.
