St. Kitts Breaks Ground on Kittitian Hill Resort

A groundbreaking ceremony held this past Saturday officially marked the start of construction on St. Kitts’ new Kittitian Hill resort, which will be managed by Sedona Resorts.

Set on a 400-acre hillside near the northern tip of St. Kitts, Kittitian Hill will add more than 500 rooms to the island upon completion.

Phase one of construction will include 110, one- and two-bedroom boutique hotel cottages with views stretching over the Caribbean sea, 69 luxury villas, the Mango Walk 18-hole championship Ian Woosnam golf course, a golf club house, beach club located on a nearby beach, swimming pool and various restaurants, bars and duty free shops. Scheduled for completion and opening in November 2012, phase one of the project will cost more than $200 million.

Phase two construction will commence immediately following phase one and will include the spa, spa cottages and spa village.
