The luxury resort boom continues in St. Kitts as yet another top-notch brand has announced plans to expand to the island.
Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas has announced that it intends to expand to St. Kitts by 2021.
The resort is set on the site of a former sugar cane plantation with gentle hills rolling down to a long stretch of sandy beach fronting the Caribbean Sea. All of Six Senses’ projected 70 pool villas will have sea views.
This news comes on the heels of Ritz-Carlton’s announced plans for a new luxury resort on the Caribbean island’s southeast peninsula in 2021, as part of a management agreement with The Liamuiga Corporation.
The proposed 125-room Ritz-Carlton resort will serve as the anchor of a larger development project by Liamuiga. It will be set on the beach, facing the Caribbean sea, and will also incorporate 25 Ritz-Carlton branded luxury villas and residences. Notable amenities will include a spa, several swimming pools set in the tropical landscape, indoor and outdoor dining facilities, and meeting spaces.
The Ritz-Carlton news followed the opening of the Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour last year. That 126-room beachfront resort is also on the island’s southeast peninsula, with all rooms and suites overlooking Banana Bay. The hotel also has three restaurants, a destination spa and indoor and outdoor event spaces.
The larger of the two-island country of St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Kitts lies in the northern part of the Leeward Islands group of the Lesser Antilles. Its volcanic origin created an 84-mile coastline of beaches and fertile interior with coconut groves and plantations.
