Curator’s statement

Saint Kitts, often simply called St. Kitts, is an island in the West Indies and, along with Nevis, forms the Federation of Saint Kitts and Nevis.

It's known for its mountains, beaches, and a rich history that includes a once-thriving sugar industry. The island offers a mix of relaxation, adventure, and cultural experiences, along with a range of resorts to accommodate visitors. Below is a guide to some of the best St Kitts resorts you can find on this captivating Caribbean island.

With its breathtaking scenery, the serene majesty of its long-silent volcanoes, and the historical remnants of its sugarcane-dominated past, Nevis offers a tranquil yet engaging experience for travelers seeking beauty and history - a journey into the heart of a serene and less-frequented paradise.

If you're planning a getaway to the island of Saint Kitts, nestled in the embrace of the Eastern Caribbean, you'll find a treasure trove of resorts that cater to every inclination, from the luxury seeker to the eco-conscious traveler.

Here’s our guide to the crème de la crème of St. Kitts Resorts:

Sunset Reef, St. Kitts

  • A gem that commands a spot along the island’s western shoreline, which is renowned for its dazzling evening displays.

  • This resort is more than just a place to stay; it's an experience, weaving together the threads of luxury, intimacy, and natural beauty.

  • With rooms that offer direct access to sandy beaches and views that capture the Caribbean Sea's blues, you’ll find that each sunset seems to outdo the last.

  • The accommodations here are likely to be plush and private, boasting amenities that could range from private plunge pools to open-concept rooms that blend seamlessly into the outdoors.

  • Dining at Sunset Reef is an affair to remember, with local seafood likely starring on the menu. Imagine dining alfresco as the sky blushes with the evening’s last light – it’s pure magic.

Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour

  • For a more cosmopolitan take on island living, the Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour melds chic modernity with touches of colonial design.

  • Nestled on Banana Bay, the resort is a quiet escape, where each of its 126 rooms provides a tranquil view of the ocean.

Here, luxury is not just felt but experienced through tailored services and a deep commitment to guest satisfaction.

St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino

  • For those who want activity along with modern comfort, the St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino offers a vibrant atmosphere.

  • Located on its own private beach, Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport is just four miles away.

  • You can test your luck at the casino or tee off at the Royal St. Kitts Golf Club. And if it's pampering you’re after, the Emerald Mist Spa is right there.

  • The Royal Beach Casino is the resort's highlight: the 35,000-square-foot casino is one of the largest in the Caribbean, offering a variety of gaming options from slots to table games.

Four Seasons Resort Nevis

  • Across the narrow maritime strait lies the Four Seasons Resort Nevis, in St. Kitts' sister isle.

  • It’s an oasis of serenity with villas that sprawl along the golden sands of Pinney's Beach.

  • The golf course here is nothing short of legendary, with its views of the Caribbean and St. Kitts itself.

  • As you approach the resort, the first thing you'll notice is the stunningly landscaped grounds, dotted with palm trees that sway to the rhythm of the sea breeze.

  • The resort seamlessly blends luxury and nature, ensuring that the beauty of Nevis is reflected in every aspect of your stay. The Four Seasons Nevis boasts a range of accommodation options, from spacious rooms and suites to luxury villas, all of which offer impressive views of either the Nevis Peak, the lush gardens, or the Caribbean Sea.

Belle Mont Farm

  • Belle Mont Farm invites those who seek a different kind of luxury – one that's grounded in nature and sustainability.

  • Your stay is set amidst a working farm, and you’ll be feasting on the freshest of farm-to-table offerings.

  • The rooms offer solace and splendid views, while the unique "edible golf course" (yes, that´s right!) adds a touch of whimsy to the game.

Day Trips

It's always advisable to check with the resort for the most current dining options, as restaurants may vary their offerings seasonally or undergo renovations. Reservations are often recommended.

Note:

As you plan your St. Kitts vacation, remember that the best times to visit are between December and April, when the island is at its most radiant (and with direct flights from JFK). Whichever resort becomes your home away from home, each is a gateway to the island's lush rainforests, inviting beaches, and rich history. Renting a car is advisable for those keen on island explorations at their own pace. But regardless of where you stay, make sure to taste the local flavors, both in food and culture, and book well in advance, especially for places like Sunset Reef, St. Kitts, where the setting sun marks the beginning of an unforgettable evening.
