|Basseterre, St. Kitts (January 5, 2018) – St. Kitts is pleased to be the only Caribbean destination among the 22 ‘hot spots’ selected by Bloomberg from across the globe as Where to Go in 2018
“It is an honor to be named among the 22 destinations that Bloomberg is recommending as ideal for travelers in 2018,” said the Hon. Mr. Lindsay F.P. Grant, Minister of Tourism, International Trade, Industry and Commerce.
“With the recent debut of the new Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour in November and the beginning of peak season, the continued inclusion of the island among lists of top places to go helps us build brand awareness and drive bookings from our target markets.”
Appearing on Bloomberg’s website on January 2, the article lists “22 especially compelling destinations” for travel in 2018. St. Kitts is the second destination to be featured and it is cited as having “pulled off a beach-escape hat trick” in that it feels untouched while being both comfortable and convenient.
The natural rainforest combined with the beach environment is noted as being what travelers hope for in a luxury vacation. Further, the article mentions the Park Hyatt St. Kitts opening in November as part of the Christophe Harbour development and superyacht marina, and states that Delta non-stop flights from Atlanta and New York help make the island “more accessible than many of its Caribbean peers.”
Per their website, Bloomberg reaches 51.1 million worldwide multiplatform visitors/readers. The Bloomberg Businessweek Pursuits section, which includes travel, is dedicated to the luxury lifestyle and to “uncovering the best things in life for the world’s most affluent audience.”
