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.
