|BASSETERR (28th Dec., 2017): St. Kitts is pleased to be among the seven Caribbean islands cited by ProTravel International, a division of Travel Leaders Elite, as their top agents’ recommended hot spots for fall and winter travel this year.
“It is an honor to receive this recognition from a top travel agency operating in the luxury marketplace,” said Racquel Brown, CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority.
“We just debuted the new Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour in November, so this distinction could not have come at a better time as we are working to drive peak season travel with a focus on the upscale demographic.”
“Particularly for our East Coast clients, the Caribbean is a very popular vacation destination, in part, due to the proximity for a long-weekend getaway, convenient flights, warm weather, and beautiful beaches,” noted Gail Grimmett, President of Protravel International.
St. Kitts & Nevis were recommended by ProTravel’s Denise Bonnici from New York, NY. She stated that both St. Kitts and Nevis are great for a warm getaway in the fall or winter with the entire family or just a partner. Further, she called St. Kitts great for active travelers who want to discover its rainforest mountains or for visitors who want to enjoy time on the white, gray and black sand beaches. In conclusion, she also mentioned the opening of the new “ultra-luxury” Park Hyatt St. Kitts hotel on Banana Bay.
