KOI St. Kitts – Curio Collection by Hilton
St. Kitts has always prided itself as being a premier destination based on the calibre of its tourism product. A new opportunity to journey to its shores just arose with the opening of the KOI Resort St. Kitts, Curio Collection by Hilton; a 102-room oceanfront accommodation.
The KOI brand appeals to the experiential destination travelers who, as CEO of the St. Kitts Tourism Authority, Ms. Racquel Brown has said, comprise the destination’s primary target market and in itself is a benefit to the tourism sector.
The property is situated along Half Moon Bay and is a five (5) minute drive from the Robert L Bradshaw International Airport. Guests can look forward to indulging in water sports and health/wellness offerings; guests can also explore the destination in style by chartering a day sail to Nevis, snorkelling, ziplining, hiking in the rainforest, visiting cultural sites and attractions.
KOI Resort St. Kitts is part of Hilton Honors, the award-winning guest-loyalty program for Hilton’s 17 distinct hotel brands. For more information or reservations, visit KOI Resort St. Kitts, Curio Collection by Hilton.
