Submit to island fever at Park Hyatt St. Kitts
If you’re in search of the perfect family-friendly summer holiday in the Caribbean, we’ve got you. The Park Hyatt St. Kitts opened in November 2017, and it’s already tempting travelers with a fabulous deal of a free night’s stay and $300 resort credit for bookings completed by June 30, 2018.
Guests booking three nights will receive the fourth night free, for stays from now until July 26th, 2018, subject to availability.
Park Hyatt St. Kitts has 78 rooms and 48 suites housed in a series of dwellings that form an arc around the resort. Each of the accommodations face towards Banana Bay (how great of a name is that?), and have either a private balcony or terrace. Every room and suite is tastefully decorated in simple island decor, so as not to distract from the colors of the Caribbean and the resort grounds.
The resort has two stunning swimming pools. The Rampart swimming pool is for adults only. The Lagoon Pool is for families, with jaw-dropping views over the beach and Caribbean Sea.
The beachfront of soft white sand is just steps away from the pools and resort rooms. The warm, calm waters of the Caribbean are perfect for swimming and splashing with the wee ones. For the more adventurous, there’s an organized swim between St. Kitts and Nevis once a year. Yes, the two islands are THAT close!

The entire family can also get in on the fun, with movie nights, croquet and beach volleyball tournaments by the Lagoon Pool. The resort can arrange day trips via short ferry ride to St. Kitts’ sister island, Nevis.
While the kids are having their fun, adults can get in some spa time. “Get your life back in balance” at the Miraval tranquil spa retreat featuring nine treatment rooms, and a selection of scrumptious body and facial treatments. (I’m all for the Light-As-Air Cloud Cream Wrap!). Book individual or couples massages, including Watsu therapy. A 1,750 square foot, 24-hour health club is also located in the Spa with both cardio equipment and weights.
Dining-wise, Park Hyatt St. Kitts serves local and international cuisine in three different restaurants. All-day dining is available in the Great House while families can also experience ocean-front dining in the Fisherman’s Village. A more fine dining experience is available for adults only in the Stone Barn, an ode to the traditional stone barns in which crops were stored during the island’s wet season. The resort also serves tasty snacks by the two resort pools and on the beach.
St. Kitts is easily accessible from the east coast of the United States and Canada, with direct flights from Atlanta, New York, Miami, New Jersey, Charlotte and Toronto. So, you’ve got zero excuses to miss out on this opportunity.
