It has been a long road to get to this point, but the Park Hyatt St. Kitts is now officially open. For those wanting to hop a plane bound for St. Kitts right now, the first day I see available for booking right now is November 8th, but the doors are now open. This marks not only the opening of this much-anticipated hotel but the first Park Hyatt to open in the Caribbean.
Not surprisingly, a beachfront Park Hyatt on St. Kitts sits at the top of the Hyatt award chart at 30,000 Hyatt points per night, but even at this pricey award level, this can be a much better value than paid rates. During peak holiday times, paid rates can reach $1000 per night for standard rooms. During the off-season, paid rates can be found closer to $400 per night, so make your decisions accordingly. The standard rooms available on points come with either one king bed or with two queen beds (hurray for families!) and ring in starting at a very comfortable 527 square feet. All rooms have either a private balcony or terrace and come with complimentary valet parking should you choose to rent a car.
If you don’t want to rent a car and prefer to have the hotel arrange your transportation, it is $50 one way per person for a shared transfer, or $180 one way for up to two adults and two children, or three adults.
In terms of dining, there is a Fisherman’s Village that serves ocean-to-table lunch and dinner overlooking the water and a Great House that offers all-day dining. I presume that is where the Globalist breakfast will be offered, though fingers crossed that it can also be enjoyed via room service. I love that there is also a Stone Barn adults-only restaurant since having adults-only pools and restaurants can really help make sure the property can not only accommodate families but also allow for some real relaxation.
I have an email into the property to try to obtain additional details about the Island Fort by Camp Hyatt and other child-centered offerings, but I am thrilled to know that a spot for the kids exists. This should make it totally realistic to combine family fun with some more adult-oriented time while the kids are at camp. In keeping with the whole World of Hyatt mission, the hotel also plans to offer some very interesting sounding immersive journeys including walks with an island historian and rainforest excursions.
I’m looking forwarding to visiting the Park Hyatt St. Kitts in the coming months and sharing all the details with you guys! Anyone else planning a journey to experience this new resort first-hand?
