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.
