Park Hyatt St. Kitts Camp Hyatt and Activity Details

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!

Park Hyatt St. Kitts Rum Bar

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.

  1. My wife and I just got back from here two days ago. It is a beautiful resort that is almost completely empty right now. Unfortunately, we had several disappointing things occur that I have never encountered at a high end resort. Also, the kids club is not open yet. They were in the process of installing a playground in the main part of the lawn in front of the building. We didn’t see a child there during our trip. Let me know if you have any questions.

    • I’m heading there with my wife at the end of the month.. what were some of the downfalls?
      Any suggestions or recommendations while at the hotel/Island.

      • Hi Allan. Give me your email address and I will contact you. I would rather not share in this blog. I will say that almost every issue that came up was because of inexperienced employees. They brought in several hyatt employees from around the world and hired a bunch of locals to fill out the staff. The new staff has not been trained properly yet. One of the relocated staff members from the Andaz Papagayo recognized me. She is now the recreation manager at the Park Hyatt. She is a wonderful person and definitely lives up to the Park Hyatt name. I wrote a very detailed email to the manager about our issues. I have only done this 2 other times in the last 15 years, so that should tell you something.

    • Yes, we are headed there in early 2018, as well, and would love to know what you experienced–good, bad, and ugly. Thank you. Opksnewhome at yahoo.

  2. I have gone to two different Hyatts within two weeks of opening date. Hyatt phuket and Puerto Vallarta and there was issues with both trips I am sure if I went back today it would be much different experience. Wife said never again wait three months then we can try it out. Too many issues to list

    • Agreed. We went to the ziva in Puerto Vallarta a few months after it opened and had a few issues there as well. Nothing too egregious, but definitely not the type of experience we have had at other zivas and zilaras. I wasn’t too keen on the buffet food at the Puerto Vallarta location. The buffet quality was a lot higher in montego bay and cancun.

  3. Do they have a club lounge there where Explorists can use one of there 4 upgrade rewards? If so does anyone know how it is and if a solid breakfast there?

    • no club here. I would have loved to use one of my last couple upgrades. They aren’t even doing the buffet breakfast yet because there aren’t enough guests. It would be wasteful.

  4. Hi all. We are planning to go in November. We have had an amazing experience at the hyatt andaz in costa rica and just returned from the andaz in mexico. costa rica does not have the nice beach, but we just loved papagayo much more. looking forward to going to st. kitts, if anybody can share recommendations on rooms or prices for the camp, i would appreciate it. if anybody has great recommendations for hotels in the caribbean, please share. we do not like casino style resorts, but want a nice beach and prefer boutique style. thanks.
