The Caribbean island of St. Kitts will be getting an entirely new luxury experience when the Park Hyatt St. Kitts opens on Nov. 1.
Situated at the base of the island’s rainforested hills, the 126-room resort will span the secluded beach of Banana Bay and offer local highlights at every turn. Local materials and water features combine contemporary architecture with colonial design, mimicking the island’s heritage. And local artwork throughout will continue that experience.
The resort’s three signature restaurants will also represent the island’s cultural appeal. The Great House, designed to look like a colonial home, will feature a rum bar, herb garden and chef’s table for groups interested in learning about island delicacies. The Fisherman’s Village, perched on the water, will serve a seafood menu of local catches from the day. Its more lowkey design pays homage to the huts that once lined the island’s coast. Lastly, The Stone Barn will offer adults-only dining, serving up food created from the hearth. Its name highlights the stone barns that islanders once used to protect their crops during the wet season.
Fitness and wellness will also be top of mind at the resort. The Sugar Mill Spa & Sanctuary will feature nine treatment rooms and a menu of treatments that incorporate local herbs. A 24-hour fitness club will also be available; however, yogis will appreciate the tranquil yoga and meditation area situated in the shadow of the resort’s Sugar Mill. Groups will also want to take advantage of the resort’s non-motorized water activities such as snorkeling, paddle boarding and kayaking.
