NIA CHARLESTOWN NEVIS (January 20, 2022) — The Nevis Tourism Authority (NTA) recently hosted Mr. Christopher Parr, Editor of Pursuitist.com to explore the best deals on the island as part of its international public relations efforts.
According to the NTA, Pursuitist is considered one of the most influential luxury blogs with a roster of international editors and guest contributors who have carefully curated a rich list detailing the world’s best travel, food and style.
Parr, named one of the top 10 luxury travel bloggers by USA Today Readers, has also written for Conde Nast Traveler, USA Today, Business Insider, and is the on-air host of Travel Tuesday on WISC TV CBS.
Accustomed to international travel and the challenges that sometimes come with it, Parr begins his review of Nevis by answering the question asked by many potential visitors, “Is Nevis safe?” He confidently advises that while travelers should always take common sense precautions, he finds Nevis to be “as safe as the US state of Minnesota!” He then goes on to outline his Top 5 favorite discoveries in the areas of Caribbean luxury, history, dining, adventure and nature, and of course beaches.
Reacting to Parr’s visit, Mrs. Jadine Yarde, Managing Director of the NTA, noted that it was a pleasant experience for the Authority.
“It’s always a pleasure to show our little corner of paradise to interested journalists who can then share their impressions of the island with a wider audience.
“In this case, we particularly enjoyed working with Pursuitist as they aim to inspire and educate their readers by reporting authentic experiences and engaging content that speaks to the luxury consumer…We like to think that Nevis, like Pursuitist, represents luxury redefined,” she said.
In his article, Parr names Four Seasons Nevis as his favorite resort on the island, noting its prodigious golf and top-notch dining experiences. For history buffs, he singles out the Alexander Hamilton House and History Museum as a must-visit. When it comes to fine dining and fun, Parr recommends beachfront Sunshine’s Beach Bar & Grill for a casual lunch. For intimate dining under the stars, he suggests Luna Restaurant & Tapas Bar where casual yet elegant meals are served in a tropical garden courtyard; and for an upscale dining experience, Parr directs readers to the Mango Restaurant at the Four Seasons and recommends getting there in time for a sunset cocktail.
When not relishing in the island’s delicious culinary offerings, Parr recommends getting out and exploring Nevis’ natural beauty. He cites a few of his favorite things to do, including the Funky Monkey ATV tour for an adventurous overview of the whole island; a visit to the botanical gardens which he describes as “surprisingly attractive”; and a trip to the Old Bath House where visitors can view the ruins of this grand 18th-century hotel and spa and bathe in a volcanic bath. Leaving perhaps the best for last, Parr draws readers’ attention to two beaches: Pinney’s, known for its smooth saffron-colored sand, and Oualie Beach, where visitors can enjoy snorkeling and snorkeling. other water sports.
