The Park Hyatt St. Kitts is now open for business and while we haven’t really seen many reviews coming out of the island resort quite yet, I did just receive information about the Park Hyatt St. Kitts Camp Hyatt Island Fort and the additional activities offered by the hotel. While this hotel and many of its activities are likely pretty pricey if you are paying with cash, remember you can stay here using 30,000 Hyatt points per night or the old Hyatt credit card sign-up bonus award nights if you still have some of those at your disposal.
Park Hyatt St. Kitts Camp Hyatt
The St. Kitts Camp Hyatt will be open seven days a week to those 3 – 12 years old and potty-trained, with the “little ones”, which I presume means those younger than three years old, welcome to join when accompanied by parents or a babysitter.
The Camp Hyatt hours are 9AM – 5PM, except on Wednesday and Friday, when the hours extend until 8PM, which means that parents can easily schedule a kid-free dinner on those nights!
This is not a complimentary Camp Hyatt the way it is at some of the other properties such as the Andaz Papagayo Costa Rica, Grand Hyatt Baha Mar, or the all-inclusive Hyatt properties in places like Cancun and Jamaica, but it is fairly priced at $45 per day, except for on the longer Wednesdays and Fridays when it is $50 per day. Those prices are more similar to what you will find for a 1/2 day at Camp Hyatt in destinations like Hawaii. Be aware that the $45 – $50 does not include food, so expect additional charges for lunch and/or dinner.
The Park Hyatt St. Kitts’ version of Camp Hyatt does have a pretty solid looking schedule that will vary some from day to day, but will include some of the following activities:
- Daily workouts such as yoga or pilates
- Outdoor activity such as collecting shells on the beach or birdwatching
- Arts and crafts
- Folklore and culture where they will play traditional games, make cultural masks, or dance the masquerade
- Create your own yummy treats using the fresh ingredients of the island
- Free play
- Dramatic storytime
- Invited friends come and talk about adventures at the fort, turtles, and more
- Wednesdays you can get comfy in their built-in amphitheater to enjoy sing-a-longs, interactive programs, puppet theater and local Tegramante drums.
- Fridays are movie and PJ nights
My younger daughter isn’t quite to the Camp Hyatt age yet, but my older daughter has many great Camp Hyatt stories to tell and she basically insists on going to a Camp Hyatt when one is available, so I’m sure she would love to check out this one at some point.
Activities at the Park Hyatt St. Kitts
In addition to the Camp Hyatt details, I was also sent the activities list for the Park Hyatt St. Kitts and although it did not include prices, I am happy to share what the resort plans to offer its guests.

This exciting experience begins with a transfer from your pick-up point to the Quad Bike (ATV) base. After an introduction and full orientation on the use of the bikes and safety precautions, you are ready to mount the bikes for a wildly exhilarating ride. Your experienced guide will lead you on a thrilling ride through cane fields and down country dirt tracks and up scenic slopes with views of neighboring islands on clear days.
This moderate hiking adventure takes you into the serenity of the rainforest where you can hear your own footsteps, your heart beating and the swaying of trees in the silky breeze, all laced with bird songs. Your guide knows and loves the rainforest and will describe to you the myriad of plants used for medicine, tools, building, and crafts.
There are additional activities such as a volcanic hike, zip-lining, deep sea fishing, snuba, jet skis, glass bottom kayaking, catamaran sailing, and more.
I’m really hoping to make it to this resort this winter to check it out and bring back a full report, but if you beat me to it, I’d love to hear your thoughts!
