At Park Hyatt St. Kitts, Sophisticated Luxury Meets Caribbean Paradise

Since it debuted at the end of 2017, Park Hyatt St. Kitts has quickly become one of the leading hotels on the island.

The Park Hyatt’s first Caribbean hotel, the property brings sophisticated luxury combined with a flare of Caribbean charm.

Situated in the most natural and untouched region of this Caribbean island, the resort is an idyllic destination in the West Indies. In the distance, Park Hyatt St. Kitts’ General Manager Flor van der Vaart said, “[Sister island] Nevis is always in your line of vision, whether you’re at breakfast or at the gym, and at the night it’s magic, too — you can see the mountains of Nevis. I think that’s what people are consistently wowed by.”

The resort has an open-air contemporary lobby, 78 guestrooms and 48 suites, many which feature private rooftop swimming pools and sundecks, and the majority have either beach or sea views.

The way the resort is laid out, van der Vaart said, it never feels over crowded. Even at 93% occupancy, guests can enjoy a tranquil and relaxing stay. “So many beaches now are so filled up, people had to wake up early just to get the chair they want by the beach or pool. But we are so spread out, that’s never an issue.”

At the Miraval Spa, the plunge pool, sauna, and steam rooms are available to all guests of the five-star resort. A 1,750-square-foot, 24-hour health club is also located in the spa with both cardio equipment and weights. Additionally, the resort features two swimming pools: The Rampart swimming pool for adults and the Lagoon Pool for family swimming.

When it comes to the culinary offerings at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts, there is the Great House, which is open all day and includes a rum bar; Fisherman’s Village, an overwater eatery with a seafood-focused menu; and Stone Barn, a dinner- and adult-only establishment serving globally influenced meals.

Van der Vaart said the food has been a sticking point with guests. “I think the top three things that stand out when people leave are the views, the people, and the food,” he told Travel Market Report.

The resort has also introduced curated culinary experiences, including a chef’s table option of varying cuisines. Van der Vaart added it has been in high demand, and “being able to interact with the chef is a special experience.”

The success of the resort has been buoyed by new airlift from carriers in key gateway cities. Air arrivals from January through April 2019, are up by 14.5% over last year, with North American arrivals up even further than that at 17.2%, according to the Ministry of Tourism.

Mid-week peak season service has expanded from JFK by American Airlines and from Atlanta by Delta, as well as a new flight from Miami. The destination will, next week, receive its first flight on American Airlines from Dallas-Fort Worth.

“We’re excited as the destination expands and grows,” said Park Hyatt St. Kitts Director of Sales & Marketing Bahia Husband.
