nisbet-plantation.jpgNEVIS, West Indies -- Nisbet Plantation Beach Club, the Caribbean's only luxury plantation inn located directly on the beach, could certainly be called the Cinderella of the Caribbean. This luxury hotel has risen from being an old plantation to the best resort in all of the Caribbean and Latin America, according to TripAdvisor in 2008.

Now the Cinderella of the Caribbean is offering the 2009 NCAA Basketball Cinderella coaches well-deserved getaways. As the men's and women' basketball seasons begin in earnest, true fanatics are already looking forward to their version of Nirvana - a near spiritual experience known as March Madness. And one thing that makes March Madness so exciting is the eventual appearance of the Cinderella teams.

For the first time in 2009, the coaches for both the men's and women's Cinderella NCAA College basketball teams will be awarded a free 7-Day/6-Night stay at Nisbet Plantation Beach Club on Nevis, the Caribbean island time forgot.

Last year Coach Bob McKillop of Davidson led his team to the Elite Eight. It was one of the NCAA's most exciting Cinderella performances as Davidson defeated powerhouses Gonzaga, Georgetown and Wisconsin before falling one shot short against Kansas - the eventual Champion.

A short time later, Bob McKillop and his wife Cathy, looking to leave all the hoopla behind, headed to intimate Nisbet Plantation Beach Club for some well deserved rest and relaxation.

"We were pleased to offer the McKillops exactly what they needed following a burst of such high intensity -- a quiet place where they could relax and rejuvenate," said Jamie Holmes, Nisbet General Manager. "Seeing how perfectly the hotel fit their needs we decided every Cinderella coach should have an opportunity to experience Nisbet Plantation."

To reward these deserving Cinderella coaches, Nisbet Plantation Beach Club is offering them a free stay for two -- a week of intense rest and relaxation, a proverbial "fairy tale" ending, where every guest request is met and everyone knows your name.

About Nisbet Plantation

Nisbet Plantation Beach Club is the Caribbean's only deluxe plantation inn located directly on the beach. It is also one of the Caribbean's historic sugar plantations and the ancestral home of Fanny Nisbet, the loving and ever-faithful wife of Britain's most famous naval hero -- Lord Admiral Horatio Nelson.

The plantation's beautifully-restored Great House, which dates from 1778, and 36 charming cottages all with modern conveniences are set in 30 acres of tropical foliage.

Nisbet Plantation was named the #1 Luxury Resort in the Caribbean and Latin America and #6 in the World in the 2008 TripAdvisor Travelers' Choice Awards. Conde Nast Traveler's readers rank Nisbet in the top 3 of all Caribbean resorts. From AAA, Nisbet has garnered two 4-Diamond Awards -- one for the hotel and one for the Great House dining room -- one of only three air-conditioned dining venues on Nevis. If customer satisfaction is the key measure of the quality experience a guest receives, then it is important to note that Nisbet Plantation is one of the Top 10 Caribbean hotels based on reviews posted on and one of only a handful of hotels to receive a perfect 5.0 Rating.

About Nevis

This 36-square-mile Caribbean island lies near the top of the Lesser Antilles archipelago, about 200 miles south of Puerto Rico, and just west of Antigua. This island jewel is approximately 7 miles long and 5 miles wide, with natural vegetation that is unparalleled. Nevis is one of the remaining unspoiled places on earth. From the top of the 3,232-foot Nevis Peak created by the only shield volcano in the Caribbean, to the depths of the clear waters offshore, there is a world of flora and fauna to be explored.
