The Nevis Tourism Authority (NTA) has launched a new video series – “Escape to Nevis” which showcases the people and the culture of the island. The series will be distributed on all the NTA’s social media platforms and broadcast on local television stations.
Not only does Nevis offers pristine beaches, rich foliage, and panoramic vistas, but it is the people of Nevis, who leave a lasting impression on visitors, that brings them back to the island year after year, according to host Jadine Yarde, CEO of the NTA, “The intent of the series is to introduce and highlight individuals who are making a positive contribution to Nevis, and who are willing to share their unique experiences with us. On a broader level, through their stories we wish to create a personal connection with our potential visitors, one that will spark both interest and consideration for our island.”
The first two shows focus on Wellness and were filmed in the lush gardens of the historic Hermitage Inn. The featured guests are noted Herbalist Sevil Hanley, and Myra Jones Romain, founder of the Edith Irby Jones Wellness Centre. Mr. Hanley displays a variety of local herbs and describes their applications in treating ailments and body maintenance; his philosophy is “The Fountain of Youth is within us; it is our immune system”. In a lively discussion with Ms. Jones Romain, she shares the center’s holistic approach to both mental and physical wellness, and how wellness practices are an integral part of the Nevisian lifestyle.
Future segments will focus on food, romance, culture, the arts, and the variety of experiences and products that Nevis has to offer visitors.
New episodes will be released bi-monthly, and feature 2 guests for each topic. The series, comprised of 10 to 15 minutes video segments, will be hosted on the Nevis Tourism Authority’s website at https://nevisisland.com/wellness and on their social media channels: Instagram (@nevisnaturally), Facebook (@nevisnaturally), YouTube (nevisnaturally) and Twitter (@Nevisnaturally).
