Momentum continues to grow around the eagerly awaited Belle Mont Farm on Kittitian Hill in St. Kitts, scheduled for completion in December with the appointment of Carlos Salazar as the property’s general manager.
A boutique cottage hotel, designed by Bill Bensley, Belle Mont Farm represents the first opportunity for guests to engage with this landmark Caribbean destination anchored in the holistic philosophy of sustainability and authenticity.
This announcement heralds the first of Kittitian Hill’s phased hospitality openings, which will come to fruition under Salazar's leadership and the guidance of founder Val Kempadoo and George Lidicker of Sedona Resorts.
A seasoned hospitality professional with deep Caribbean experience, Salazar joins the Kittitian Hill team at a key time of the project. His distinguished career to date includes general manager of Bimini Bay Resort in The Bahamas and Z Ocean Hotel in Miami’s South Beach.
In addition, Salazar has worked as managing director and executive assistant manager/food and beverage at both Rosewood Hotels and Resorts’ Jumby Bay, Antigua and The Carlyle, New York. Across a career spanning more than 20 years Salazar has also worked for leading hotel groups Mandarin Oriental and Hilton Hotels in Asia Pacific.
Situated towards the summit of the resort’s 400 hillside acres, Belle Mont Farm has been carefully shaped, as part of the wider Kittitian Hill project and built by a skilled team of local craftsmen and will feature classic colonial interiors flanked by open verandas, tactically placed to take advantage of Kittitian Hill’s ocean views, gentle trades and the flora and fauna of Mt. Liamuiga’s tropical forest.
