Basseterre, St. Kitts (CUOPM) — St. Kitts is listed in the New York Times “52 Places to Go in 2015.”
The New York Times Travel section lists St. Kitts as one of the 52 “untrammelled oases beckon, once avoided destinations become must-sees and familiar cities offer new reasons to visit.
Describes as Upscale in the Caribbean, but sustainable, too, the New York Times states that the 65-square-mile island of St. Kitts is best known for its annual music festival, with performers ranging from Michael Bolton to Nas.
“Now two landmark hotel developments will put this lush, unpretentious island on the map for luxury. In the south, Christophe Harbour — a grand development featuring a new mega-yacht marina, Tom Fazio golf course and trendy beach club, SALT Plage — will in 2015 break ground on the Caribbean’s first Park Hyatt. Transforming the mountainous north, meanwhile, is Kittitian Hill — not just a lavish resort but a sustainable community, honoring all things local, with a 400-acre organic farm, “edible” golf course …., plush accommodations and farm-to-table cuisine.”
“There are even plans for a film institute, fine art residency program and weekly fish fry. The airport’s plush YU Lounge, a private jet terminal that opened this year, will make the influx of upscale travelers feel right at home,” said the writer Baz Dreisinger.
Only two other Caribbean islands – Cuba and St. Vincent and the Grenadines – are listed among the “50 Places to go in 2015.”
