I know the Park Hyatt St. Kitts is on the top of the radar of many Hyatt fans and points-fueled travelers. When it opens, it will play host to 78 rooms and 48 suites in a series of dwellings which form an arc around the beachside resort. While the resort isn’t open quite yet, and actually won’t be for many months to come, award availability using Hyatt Gold Passport points is now open for stays beginning mid-April 2017.
This is a top tier Category 7 Hyatt property which means that award rates are 30,000 points per night. Award nights books into the 527 foot Park King or Park Queen rooms. Families will appreciate that the Park Queen rooms that are bookable on points come with two queen beds and can house two adults and two children.
Cash rates so far seem to vary wildly from $450 in the summer to $900 – $1,100+ per night in the spring and fall. There aren’t a huge variety of dates to look at yet since it is currently only available for booking from mid-April to mid-October 2017. The standard suite is the 708 foot Park Suite King, so I would presume this is the suite for Diamond Confirmed Upgrades.
If you are looking to book this property on awards I would consider getting the Hyatt Visa for the two award nights to use at any Hyatt property that come as the sign-up bonus for that card. A card with a big Chase Ultimate Rewards sign-up bonus would also be worth consideration since those points transfer 1:1 to Hyatt. For example, the 100,000 point sign-up bonus from the Chase Sapphire Reserve Card would provide more than enough points for three award nights at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts. Obviously if you plan to visit in a peak season when rates are close to $1000 per night, it would be a great time to use Hyatt points and get a massive return for your points.
I very much hope to make it to this property in 2017, though I do want to offer a word of caution that these sort of projects seem to frequently be dealt construction delays, so I wouldn’t get too fixated on any specific opening date until it is much closer within reach. Even now their website and Facebook page advertise that they are accepting reservations beginning March 1, 2016, but the first day I find available isn’t actually until April 15, 2016.
Is this hotel on your 2017 radar? Do you plan to use Hyatt Gold Passport points for your stay?
