Unique opportunity to purchase the historic Ottley’s Plantation Inn – formerly considered one of the Caribbean’s best boutique hotels.

Historic Boutique Hotel for Sale in St Kitts

This is a fantastic opportunity to acquire the historic Ottley’s Plantation Inn, which was formerly considered one of the Caribbean’s best boutique hotels with a recognized first class international reputation.

Originally owned by Drewry Ottley who arrived from Yorkshire, England in the 18th Century to establish a sugar plantation, the property has since changed hands various times until being converted from a private home to an inn by the Keush-Lowell family in the 1980’s.

The property has been locked down for approximately 4 years and the grounds and various buildings are in need of general repairs.

Nevertheless, the property remains one of the most attractive plantation estates in the Caribbean.

Tremendous Investment Opportunity

Offering tremendous development potential, the hotel could be re-established as a luxury boutique hotel or could be converted into a luxury residential gated community, a world-class health and wellness retreat, an international medical university or a one of a kind private residence.

The hotel has been pre-approved in principle by the Government of St Kitts & Nevis for significant further expansion, various tax concessions and the Citizenship by Investment Program, offering the potential for a very high ROI.

Existing Structures

Accessible via an un-surfaced road off the Island Main Road about 15 minutes drive from the international airport, this former hotel is located above the village of Ottleys on the lower slopes of Mount Liamuiga, approximately 500 feet above sea level on the island of St Kitts.

The property comprises several old world-style structures providing a total of 24 rooms on 34.155 acres of idyllic hillside land enjoying panoramic views over the north eastern coast of St Kitts, the Atlantic Ocean and as far as the adjacent islands of St Martin and St Barts on clear days.
