If white-sand beaches call to you this holiday season, head to Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour, the first Park Hyatt in the Caribbean.
The 126-room luxury resort spans the secluded beaches of Banana Bay, backed up against rolling hills with views of the Caribbean Sea and neighboring island Nevis, offering an ideal backdrop and environment in which to recharge after a busy holiday season.
Along with the resort’s debut is the unveiling of the first Miraval Life in Balance Spa in the Caribbean, a wellness-centric oasis offering award-winning services and products.
“We are excited to debut the Park Hyatt brand experience on this incredible island that is brimming with rich culture, storied history, untapped adventure and pristine beaches,” said Myles McGourty, senior vice president, Latin America and Caribbean, Hyatt. “Our discerning global guests will be welcomed with personalized service and contemporary elegance surrounded by sophisticated design, world-class artwork, the finest culinary expressions and Miraval’s deep-rooted expertise in wellness.”
The design of the resort’s 78 rooms and 48 suites incorporate local materials and calming aesthetics. The Kittian-inspired rooms boast views of the sea, private balconies and terraces, rain showers and deep soaking tubs. The unparalleled three-bedroom Presidential Villa is equipped with a private infinity pool, wellness area, personal butler and private chef.
The resort has three signature restaurants: Fisherman’s Village with ocean-to-table lunch and dinner; The Stone Barn, offering an intimate adults-only dining experience; and The Great House, reflective of a grand colonial home offering all-day dining, a Rum Bar, an herb garden and afternoon tea.
There are also indoor and outdoor event spaces, two pools and immersive experiences like walks with an island historian, rainforest excursions and visits to Brimstone Hill Fortress, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
People need a “chance to get some well-needed rest, relaxation and fresh air.” This is a sentiment we all likely share, as does the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. The EC included that phrase when it released its plan to help reopen Europe following the COVID-19 global pandemic. While most EU borders remain closed to international travel until at least mid-June, the EC’s plan starts with inter-Europe travel, and are non-binding recommendations and guidelines. European countries still have the final decision, so travelers are advised to check the restrictions of the countries they plan to visit. According to the EC, “blanket restrictions of free movement are replaced by targeted measures.”
The city took its name from Athena, goddess of wisdom, strategy and war, and protector of the city. The financial, political and administrative center of the country and an all-powerful city-state in antiquity, Athens is a major center of culture. A visit to the first-ever museum dedicated to Byzantium, a stroll around the National Garden and a trip to the Olympeion archaeological site will take you back through time.
