04.22.2017Celebrating Earth Day in Paradise
Today is Earth Day, a day when governments, communities, organisations and individuals across 193 countries run events in support of the protection of our environment and planet. Here at Paradise Beach Nevis, this is a cause we really care about and so we want to show you some of the things we're doing to protect Paradise.
With all the beautiful sunshine we get, it would be madness not to use our sun's energy. Solar panels across the resort ensure you're able to get all the hot water you need, when you need, without wasting electricity and precious resources.
On the resort, we recycle water where we can to minimise effects on the environment. The pumps in our swimming pools use up just one-third of the electricity of normal pumps and the villas' thatched roofs are made from recycled materials which means they are easier to clean and save water too!
You'll notice all inside areas are fitted with air conditioning units to ensure you get some respite from the heat outside. AirCon normally uses up huge amounts of electricity but our units have a top rating for environmental impact.
Finally, our luxury villas now all have LED lighting which means the power we were using in a day is now lasting us a full month.
On this Earth Day, we here at Paradise Beach Nevis, join millions of others around the world in our promise to protect our environment and the future of our beautiful world.
Easter weekend is fast approaching and we're getting ready for what's set to be an exciting and fun festival period. For those of you joining us in Paradise over the Easter holidays, here's what we have planned.
The weekend gets off to a flying start with Nevis' unique Kite Flying Contest open for contestants across the island. The contest takes place on Good Friday and entries will be judged on design, innovation and of course, performance. This is a great event for the whole family.
We'll have an Easter egg hunt around the resort for all the children with us over Easter. With sunshine and temperatures set to reach a glorious 24 degrees over the weekend, let's hope the kids find the chocolate before they melt!
There will be horse racing on Easter Monday as well as competitions and quizzes throughout the weekend. It will be busy and bustling and promises to bring some fine Nevisian spirit and soul to your Easter celebrations this year. Happy Easter to everyone from the Paradise Beach Nevis team and, if you are with us over the holidays, please feel free to ask us for more information on all events and activities.

I love working with my supportive team who strive to provide a very high standard in all aspects of our resort and also receiving all that amazing feedback from guests who have enjoyed their time here.
Any restaurant recommendations for our guests?
My favorite restaurants that visitors should try are:
Sunshines Bar & Grill, fresh fish with Caribbean flavours and coconut rice (A must try). The Lobster salad is to die for.
Bananas Restaurant Mahi Mahi with Thai curry sauce, this dish is bursting with Caribbean flavours. Finally,
Golden Rock Restaurant: the lobster sandwich is highly recommendable.
What’s your best memory at Paradise Beach?
The best memory is seeing our guests having fun at our Lobster bake in pouring down rain, dancing and having a blast.
Do you have a message for guests who are thinking about joining you in paradise?
If you’re looking to get away from the hustle and bustle, we welcome you with open arms to our tropical oasis of peace and tranquility, where your days can be spent just gazing away at the Caribbean Sea from a hammock under the coconut tree.
02.23.2017Mad about Merv - An interview with Paradise Beach Nevis' bartender
Paradise Beach Nevis wouldn't be the luxurious haven it is without all our wonderful staff. Over the next few weeks, we'll be introducing them to you. First up is Merv, the smiliest bartender on Nevis!
What is your favourite thing about working at Paradise Beach Nevis?
My favourite thing about working here is that I get to meet new and exciting people and learn about new cultures. At the same time, I am able to expose my guests to my culture and of course make wonderful tasty cocktails for each and every guest.
What food do you recommend guests try?
Whilst on the island you should taste local dishes such as conch fritters, and the traditional Caribbean goats water stew. Being by the sea, you must also eat fresh daily catch such as Mahi, Wahoo, Snapper and Lobster.
Share a magical moment or a funny story from your time working at Paradise Beach Nevis
One magical memory is from two years ago on Old Years Night (New Years Eve). We had a bon fire and a midnight champagne toast with our guest. We watched the fireworks from three different places and it was pretty spectacular.
Do you have a message for guests who are thinking about joining you in paradise?
The best thing about Paradise is that we are the most beautiful, relaxing, peaceful and private place on the Island. If you are not staying at Paradise Beach Nevis, you are missing out!
