Four Seasons Resort Nevis has named Karen Mcfarlane as its new spa director. A spa and wellness hospitality veteran with more than 20 years of experience, Mcfarlane most recently served at Jumby Island Resort, a member of the Oetker Collection, in Antigua, where she spent the last 11 years.

“I am pleased to welcome Karen to the Four Seasons Resort Nevis family,” said Yvette Thomas-Henry, regional vice president and general manager for Four Seasons Nevis. “Her passion for excellence and her commitment to training and development is sure to enhance and elevate the spa, wellness and fitness offerings at our Resort. I’m excited to see what her fresh perspective will bring to our unique Nevisian offerings.”

In her new role as spa director, Mcfarlane will oversee both the resort’s spa and fitness operations, which include a 12,000-square-foot spa facility, featuring 11 treatment rooms, six of which are located in private Nevisian huts. The spa is set in a garden amid lush greenery and flowers, surrounded by tropical plants and flora native to the island.

“It is truly an honor to be joining the Four Seasons Resort Nevis family,” said Mcfarlane. “I am looking forward to developing the Spa's wellness experiences while infusing the rich natural elements of Nevis so that our visiting guests can experience the authenticity of the island.”

Originally from Jamaica, Mcfarlane comes to Nevis having worked in several Caribbean resorts, including  Carlisle Bay, Blue Waters Hotel, Sandals Resort and Spa and, most recently, Jumby Island. She began her career as a nail technician and massage therapist and transitioned through several learning and development programs, including a scholarship through the Caribbean Hotel and Tourism Association to study Spa & Hospitality Management at the University of California.
