Final project designs for Park Hyatt St. Kitts have just been approved. The first phase of the project will include 134 hotel rooms in the Banana Bay of Christophe Harbour on the southeastern peninsula of the island.
Only last week a reader asked me if I knew anything about the Park Hyatt St. Kitts. My research did not lead to anything more recent than a slew of 2010 articles announcing the project.
Looks like everything is in place for construction to begin with UK-based construction company Kier as the contractor for Phase One being developed by Dubai-based Range Developments.
Here are Kier Construction renderings of the Park Hyatt St. Kitts design.
Christophe Harbour is a 2,500 acre development space acquired by Darby Investment Partner earlier this year.
Christophe Harbour looks like it will be a luxury Caribbean playground for the rich and famous with the Park Hyatt St. Kitts, residential units and a yacht harbour and marina. Parking space for your 200 ft. yacht run in the $1.5 to $3 million range.
Turns out there was some kind of changeover in the ownership of Christophe Harbour back in June 2013. The CEO of the former company Kiawah is the CEO of the new company, Darby Family Investment Group. Apparently the development of Christophe Harbour is a move to establish a world-class resort as St. Kitts changes from an agricultural economy to a tourism-based economy.
Park Hyatt St. Kitts is scheduled to open in late 2015. I predict a category 7 Hyatt Gold Passport award level.
