Basseterre, St. Kitts, February 15, 2018 (SKNIS): CNN Travel has ranked the recently opened Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour on the picturesque Southeast Peninsula—where a marriage of the Atlantic Ocean and Caribbean Sea can be seen from Timothy Hill—as number one among its 14 best new hotels and resorts opening in the Caribbean.
CNN’s Travel Writer, Meredith Rosenberg, in her article “The 14 Best new Caribbean Hotels and Resorts” published on February 14, 2018, said “this splashy five-star resort isn’t just the first Park Hyatt on St. Kitts, but the first Park Hyatt in the Caribbean.”
Ms. Rosenberg continued: “Luckily, the fall hurricane season spared tiny St. Kitts, allowing the 127-room property to open this past November in a remote section of the undeveloped island.”
“Of interest is a replica sugar mill where guests can take fitness, yoga and meditation classes, but the real highlight just may be the 37,000-square-foot Miraval Life in Balance Spa, from none other than the renowned Miraval brand,” she said.
“Those wishing to venture off-site have their pick of outdoor activities, including volcano hiking, but the Park Hyatt can also arrange trips to the UNESCO Brimstone Hill Fortress or provide an island historian for a truly local experience,” she added.
Other hotels in the category ranking include: No. 2—Baha Ma, Bahamas; No.3—The Other Side, Bahamas; No. 4—Jewel Grande Montego Bay Resort & Spa, Jamaica; No.5—Serafina Beach Hotel, Puerto Rico; No.6—Gran Hotel Manzana Kempinski La Habana, Cuba; No.7—Turks Cay Resort and Marina, Turks and Caicos; No.8—Hodges Bay Resort and Spa, Antigua; No.9—Quintessence Boutique Resort, Anguilla; No.10—The Loren at Pink Beach, Bermuda; No.11—Pink Sands Club, Canouan, St. Vincent and the Grenadines; No.12—Silversands, Grenada; No.13—The Shore Club, Turks and Caicos; No.14—Bahama House, Bahamas.
The Park Hyatt St. Kitts is set within the Christophe Harbour Development on Banana Bay. It made its debut on November 1, 2017. It is a 126-Room resort—78 rooms and 48 suites—which spans the secluded beach of Banana Bay. Each room has a private balcony or terrace.
