Certificate of Excellence
Gentle trade winds and dramatic Caribbean vistas set the stage for a visit to Golden Rock Inn. A former sugar estate dating back to the early 1800's, the property has been thoughtfully restored through the eyes of New York artists Helen and Brice Marden. Set on 100 acres stretching up the slopes of Nevis Peak, this boutique property has eleven guest rooms and private cottages, including the unique Sugar Mill Suite. Surrounded by lush tropical gardens designed by the owners with Miami landscape architect Raymond Jungles, the inn is an escape embraced with birds' songs and the rustling of bamboo. Guest rooms have either king or twin beds, which can be joined together to create a king. The unique Sugar Mill Suite has an oversized king bed upstairs, with full bath, and 2 twins downstairs with full bath. This accomodation is suitable for 3 adults or 2 adults and 2 children.

Difficult to praise this hotel highly enough. Factually, the bungalows are spotlessly clean, well appointed and in lush, lush well maintained vegetation. You can see the monkeys playing in the trees, hear the symphony of frogs at night have panoramic views of the sea and...More

The entrance to the restaurant is beautiful! The restaurant is cozy and cute. We all ordered their famous grand lobster sandwich. It was delicious! The drive to the restaurant/hotel was tricky. It’s nice to dine once and try their famous lobster sandwich.
