Amazing sailing and awesome room

New York City, New York

We came to Nonsuch for some rest relaxation and sailing. We were very happy with our stay. The water views from our huge one bedroom villa were excellent, and the spacious terrace with multiple seating areas was wonderful. Thoroughly enjoyed reading on the terrace in the lounge chair over looking the expansive bay and huge palm trees.Very luxurious. The food was good and the infinity pool by the dining room had incredible views over the bay. The snorkeling at Green island was a nice plus - not great coral, but loads of fish and beautiful water. As others have noted, the beach is only ok, but we knew that before hand. The sailing however was amazing. If you are an accomplished sailor they will let you take out the boats on your own after they observe you in a trial run with the pro. We really enjoyed cruising through the bay in the RS Elite keel boat. The winds were gusting over 20kt and it was a total thrill to sail fast in the huge bay. The Elite is a racing machine but is easy to sail. The jib is on a track so you don’t have to touch it when you tac. We also went on the hobie cat with the pro and he drove first and then I did. We were flying through the water and got her heeled way over while I was driving and he standing on the pontoon for ballast encouraging me “Ya mon, go mon, pull in the main! ride the waves!!” My partner, who is new to sailing, was thoroughly enjoying it too and laughing the whole time. I also took a lesson on the tiny centerboard boat, perfect for kids (but a bit awkward for tall guys like me). It was very windy our whole stay which I enjoyed but would make it hard for a newbie sailor to take a lesson. What’s wonderful is they will take you on a ride so you don’t have to be a sailor to enjoy the amenity. Improvements: if you want to windsurf you have to pay because it’s not part of the sailing program. I think they should have at least one free windsurfer. (I know it’s a dying sport). The pool in the dining room is covered by a screen to keep the wind at bay, The screen is old and should be replaced with an elegant solution. We didn’t even realize how nice that pool was until the last day because the screen blocks it, and blocks the view from the dining room. All in all we had a great time and felt it was also a great value compared to other all inclusives on the island.

Good Place

St. Kitts

Good to stay and relax with peaceful environment. I recommend, the room in from line which will be facing the shore. The view is great. The water so clear, best place for snorkeling. The staff is very friendly.
