Here’s a snippet from the article. Read the rest on Fathom for more about which British Royal, cuisine and the most important thing you should do while in Nevis. There are few places better suited to “getting away from it all” than Nevis. You’ll find the natural beauty of the West Indies, some of the nicest luxury hotels and restaurants in the Caribbean, and absolute discretion — it served as a refuge for one of the most notable members of the British royal family (but more on that later).
