Park Hyatt, St Kitts
With one of the best spas in the Caribbean and a gorgeously secluded spot on Banana Bay, Park Hyatt Saint Kitts is blissful place to relax and rejuvenate.
Overlooking the palm-tree flanked sands of sleepy Banana Bay on the southernmost tip of the island, the luxury Park Hyatt St. Kitts is the most recent luxury hotel addition to grace this undiscovered Caribbean island.
Modern in style, the sleek rooms and suites have a contemporary decor. There’s a choice of three restaurants, or explore Christophe Harbour next door to eat, drink and dance to local bands. The pools offer the best of both worlds with a quiet, adults-only infinity pool and a family-friendly beachfront lagoon pool, which is just a few steps from the sand. By day, you’ll be lulled by a live reggae band.
The hotel is also home to the Caribbean’s first Miraval Spa. This huge destination spa promises to take spa-goers on a wellness journey to balance the ‘four pillars’ – Challenge, Improve, Renew and Indulge, through sunrise meditation, mindfulness breathing techniques and weightless water experiences alongside more traditional massages, scrubs and facials.
Montpelier Plantation - Nevis
It’s only a short hop by boat to Nevis, and Montpelier Plantation, a member of Relais & Chateaux, makes a great base if you want a two-centre stay on St Kitts’ neighbour. Situated in 24 hectares of private tropical gardens on the slopes of Mt Nevis, it’s a superb spot in which to relax and unwind. There are just 19 bedrooms here, all individually decorated, and with Egyptian cotton sheets, impressive views of the volcano and sea and most have their own private veranda. All rooms are charming but we especially love Tamarind Villa with its own plunge pool.
The resort has a pool but it also has its own stretch of beach with complimentary transfers, if you’d rather feel the sand between your toes and the chance of a dip in the Caribbean. When it comes to time to eat, there are two restaurants at Montpelier serving delicious West Indian and international dishes, with locally-caught fish a speciality. For a treat book an intimate, candlelit, five-course tasting menu for two at Mill Privée, the property’s converted 300-year-old sugar mill.
