1212008: Nisbet Offers Wedding Package

We’ve been lucky enough to have stayed at many beautiful beachside resorts through the years but one we’ve enjoyed is truly unique: Nisbet Plantation Beach Club. This historic greathouse, surrounded by beautiful cottages and 30 acres of palm trees, is the only historic plantation inn in the Caribbean that’s right on the beach. (Most of the plantations in the islands were built up on the hills to take advantage of sea breezes during those years before air conditioning.)

One thing we really remember about Nisbet is the beautiful, majestic walk from the greathouse to the beach, a walk lined with towering palm trees…perfect for a bride’s entrance on her wedding day. Nisbet is a top wedding destination (they’ve got an in-house wedding planner and a 12-page wedding guide you can download . They’ve also got a wedding package and romance package:
