St. Kitts and Nevis Unveil Newly Renovated Properties, Focus on Cuisine, Seasonal Savings Offer

Newly renovated hotels, some of the best diving in the Caribbean, and a new emphasis on food.

St. Kitts Tourism and the Four Seasons Resort Nevis hosted media including Open Jaw at Café Boulud at the Four Seasons Toronto 09NOV, including drinks made with Crowned Monkey rum straight from the famed resort. They also dished out great information about the destination.

St. Kitts is putting a major emphasis on its culinary offerings and top restaurants, including dishes such as lamb shoulder with plantains at The Pavilion at Christophe Harbour and lemongrass-poached lobster at The Kitchen, a restaurant at luxurious Belle Mont Farm, a sustainable resort on the north end of the island.

To help Canadians discover the local culinary culture, the destination has launched Savour St. Kitts, a print and digital resource that celebrates the island’s vibrant food scene.

The 28-page guide is full of great tips to help navigate the island’s culinary experiences. Diners can choose from a distinctive array of adventures, including a farm-to-table “edible landscape” feast held in the heart of the rainforest, a romantic tasting menu served amidst cascading waterfalls at a 5-star hotel, and a chance to dine by candlelit within the historic stone walls of a 300-year old sugar mill on nearby sister island, Nevis.

The Four Seasons Resort Nevis recently underwent a top to bottom renovation, said Mitchell Nover, Director of Public Relations and Communications.

“We re-did the interiors in 2018, including all rooms, our restaurants and the lobby. In 2019 we re-did the exterior, including adding a new infinity pool.”

The hotel also fronts a wonderful, three-kilometer-long beach and includes a beautiful 18-hole golf course designed by architect Robert Trent Jones II. They also have four restaurant, a kids' club, and free, non-motorized watersports.

“The boat ride from St. Kitts to Nevis is magical,” said Paul Minich, who heads up marketing for St. Kitts Tourism in Canada. “It’s only 10 minutes but it feels amazing when you’re greeted at the Four Seasons.”

St. Kitts removed all COVID-related travel restrictions on 15 AUG. Air Canada began direct flights from Toronto YYZ to St. Kitts SKB Airport on Saturday, 05 NOV. Those flights are slated to continue through APR 2023. Visitors also can fly to St. Kitts via Miami.

“We’re excited to welcome Canadians back,” Minich said.

St. Kitts was awarded the title of Caribbean’s Leading Dive Destination 2022 at the 29th World Travel Awards.

Bordered by the Caribbean and the Atlantic, the island offers a range of options, from shipwrecks of historic colonial battles, near-shore reefs to sub-aquatic caves. Underwater visibility ranges from nine to 30 meters deep, meaning travellers will have crystal-clear views of walls, ledges, under hangs, coral towers, and sunken ships, all swarming with sea life.

St. Kitts recently unveiled its 2022 Winter Escape Promotion. Comprising seven high-end resorts and hotels, this year's promotion offers travellers the opportunity to relax, explore, and indulge in St. Kitts for a seasonally discounted rate.

"Our island-wide offers and seasonal discounts are always something to sing about, and we are excited because this year's Winter Escape Promotion is the grandest one yet,” said Ellison "Tommy" Thompson, CEO of St. Kitts Tourism Authority. “St. Kitts provides the perfect backdrop for an envious winter getaway, from zip-line thrills and ATV adventures to cultural discoveries and culinary delights."

The St. Kitts Tourism Authority earlier this fall launched a new brand campaign called "Venture Deeper."

“St. Kitts is relatively new to tourism, only focusing efforts and resources to tourism within the last 20 years. This gives our island a very different ethos in the Caribbean,” Thompson said at a Toronto event in September. “We are contemplative, nostalgic, and soulful. We appeal to intrepid travellers eager to explore, to learn, and immerse themselves fully in a new experience.”
