St Kitts has got bragging rights in the Caribbean as the only region’s only island to feature on a prestigious list of essential 2018 destination.
Bloomberg Businessweek has named St Kitts among its 22 places that are “especially hot” this year.
The magazine writes: “St Kitts has pulled off a beach-escape hat trick: It feels untouched while being both comfortable and convenient.
“A quarter of it is preserved as American oceanic rainforest, perfect for hiking through pristine wilderness, but the island also offers the infinity pools and beachfront cafes travellers hope for in a luxe vacation.”
Bloomberg describes the island as “surviving last year’s hurricanes unscathed” before getting a “considerable injection of glitz” with the opening of the Park Hyatt in November.
Non-stop flights from Atlanta and New York make it easily accessible, the article adds.
“It is an honour to be named among the 22 destinations that Bloomberg is recommending as ideal for travelers in 2018,” said Lindsay Grant, minister of tourism, international trade, industry and commerce.
“With the recent debut of the new Park Hyatt St Kitts Christophe Harbour in November and the beginning of peak season, the continued inclusion of the island among lists of top places to go helps us build brand awareness and drive bookings from our target markets.”
