Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour has announced the appointment of Marc Schneider as its new general manager. A Hyatt veteran, Schneider will oversee all operations at the luxury beachfront resort.
Schneider brings over 20 years of hospitality experience and a strong knowledge of business, lifestyle, luxury, and resort hotels in the North American and the Caribbean markets, according to Park Hyatt. Most recently, he was promoted to resort manager of Grand Hyatt Baha Mar from his position as director of rooms. During his time with the resort in the Bahamas, Schneider played an integral role in opening the 1,000-plus room property.
Previously, Schneider was director of rooms at Hyatt Regency Bellevue in Washington, where he achieved success by developing a strong focus and culture in order to surpass the 70 percent NPS (net promoter score) mark. For five years before this, Schneider served as director of rooms at Park Hyatt Beaver Creek Resort & Spa in Colorado, where he oversaw the rooms division, leading the team to generate revenues in excess of $17 million annually. Throughout his career Schneider has also worked in food & beverage, spa, engineering, finance, and sales and marketing.
Set within Christophe Harbour on Banana Bay, Park Hyatt St. Kitts has 126 sustainably designed guestrooms, three restaurants, a Miraval Life in Balance Spa and event spaces. It is the first and only Park Hyatt property in the Caribbean.
