Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour announces the opening of the island’s first luxury beach resort and the first Park Hyatt hotel in the Caribbean region, scheduled to debut on November 1, 2017.
The 126-room resort will span the secluded beach of Banana Bay at the foot of the island’s lush rolling hills, and enable guests to discover this idyllic island in the West Indies through sophisticated design, art, culinary experiences and immersive excursions. Home to three signature restaurants, a destination resort spa and wellness center, and indoor and outdoor event spaces, the resort will launch the unparalleled and unique Park Hyatt experience to the Caribbean.
All 78 rooms and 48 suites will overlook the golden sandy beach of Banana Bay. Sustainably designed with local materials and unique water features throughout, Park Hyatt St. Kitts will echo the island’s rich heritage and culture, and seamlessly intertwine contemporary architecture and colonial design. Each room’s chic décor will showcase views of the Caribbean Sea and the islands beyond, with luxurious touches such as private balconies and terraces, local artwork, rain-showers and deep soaking tubs. Premium suites will feature private rooftop swimming pools and sundecks. For the ultimate indulgence for discerning guests, the three-bedroom Presidential Villa will be equipped with a private infinity pool, wellness area, personal butler and private chef.
The resort will showcase exceptional local and international cuisine through three distinct dining experiences. The Great House, reflective of a grand colonial home, will offer all-day dining, a Rum Bar, herb garden, chef’s table, and a conservatory serving plantation afternoon tea. The Fisherman’s Village will serve ocean-to-table lunch and dinner perched on the water. Its design will echo the huts and berths that once lined the coastline of St. Kitts. The Stone Barn will provide an adult-only intimate dining experience with ‘food from the hearth’ and an extensive wine list.
An enclave of nurturing and sophisticated wellness, The Sugar Mill Spa & Sanctuary will be home to nine treatment rooms, destination inspired therapies, and a 1,750-square-foot, 24-hour fitness club. A luxury destination unto itself, treatments will incorporate local herbs, and the shadow of the resort’s Sugar Mill will provide a tranquil location for daily yoga and meditation. With dramatic views of neighboring Nevis, the resort will provide non-motorized water activities, including snorkeling, paddleboards and kayaks. The Lagoon pool will be dedicated for family enjoyment and for an adults-only option, the Rampart pool will be available.
To aid our guests’ understanding and immersion onto this unique location, Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour has developed a series of enriching ‘Journeys’ which will introduce guests to the history, culture and people of the Federation, which until 2005 still had sugar production as its dominant industry. True to the Park Hyatt brand’s commitment to bring rare and intimate experiences to travelers, each immersive Journey itinerary will be curated to feature local activities and interactions with interesting personalities. From walks with an island historian and rainforest excursions, to visiting a UNESCO fortress elemental in Caribbean history. For the resort’s youngest guests, The Island Fort by Camp Hyatt will offer educational activities offering an introduction to the culture of St. Kitts & Nevis.
Events on St. Kitts were traditionally held in private homes, and in this spirit the resort has developed The Reception Hall–featuring five private event spaces, an outdoor terrace and two event lawns providing the perfect setting for incentive groups and destination weddings.
