Mandarin Oriental to add third Caribbean resort with new St Kitts hotel
Expanding their Caribbean presence further, the Mandarin Oriental hotel group has announced its third and last project in the Caribbean with plans for a new St. Kitts hotel. The new lavish resort is due to be opening sometime in 2011
To put a finishing touch to their Caribbean pursuits, Mandarin Oriental announces its third and last project (at least for now) in the Caribbean with their latest St. Kitts hotel. The new luxurious 125-room St Kitts resort will also have 20 separate Residences and will be idyllically located on a pristine 50 acre site at Majors Bay; an exclusive private cove on the island’s secluded southeast peninsula. With this latest Caribbean addition to their portfolio, the luxurious hotel brand will have a total of 5 Caribbean hotels open or currently under development. Mandarin Oriental will thus be marking the end of their Caribbean ambition with this last project of a St Kitts hotel.
Due to open sometime in 2011, this new lavish St Kitts hotel will appeal to sophisticated leisure travellers and naturalists alike with a wide range of unspoiled ecosystems, from coral reefs to salt ponds and lush vegetation in the surrounding verdant hillsides. The champagne-coloured beach, with its powder-fine sand, will provide an ideal setting for active recreation or complete relaxation in the most exclusive of St Kitts holidays.
The resort will be an integral part of Christophe Harbour, a 2,400 acre project being developed along the coastline of both the Caribbean Sea and Atlantic Ocean. The overall development will offer an array of leisure activities, including a Marina village offering docking spaces for private yachts, an eclectic choice of restaurants and boutiques, as well as an 18-hole Tom Fazio Championship golf course.
The rooms and suites at Mandarin Oriental’s new St. Kitts hotel will captivate guests with a graceful style reflective of the Caribbean. The accommodation will be amongst the largest in the region, each incorporating superior technology and entertainment systems. Among the hotel’s specialty accommodations are “Lagoon Suites,” designed as luxurious over-water bungalows, set above the property’s tranquil, pristine lagoon. The resort’s 4,800-square-foot beachfront Presidential Suite will offer one of the finest interiors to be found on the island. This coupled with a wide range of contemporary cuisine and alfresco dining that will be featured in five restaurants and bars, all with spectacular views over the azure waters of the Caribbean Sea. A 225-seat ballroom and three additional meeting rooms will also be incorporated into the magnificent St Kitts hotel design.
In-keeping with Mandarin Oriental’s focus on wellbeing and relaxation, this new St Kitts hotel will be no exception with a comprehensive 15,000-square-foot spa will feature 11 state-of-the-art treatment rooms offering holistic rejuvenation and relaxation in a tranquil, meditative setting. Incorporating the most extensive range of wellness treatments in St. Kitts, The Spa at Mandarin Oriental will feature signature programs that are exclusive to the Group and rooted in oriental philosophy and practice. A sophisticated fitness centre, as well as outdoor swimming pools will also be available.
Guests at the resort will enjoy a wide selection of recreational water sports activities including world-class snorkeling and sailing. For the most action-packed St Kitts holidays; guided hiking tours through the island’s rainforests up to Mount Liamuiga and the mile-wide crater rim of this dormant volcano will also be a prominent attraction. The island is abundantly populated by tropical birds, white-tailed deer and green Vervet monkeys, affording exceptional opportunities for wildlife viewing.
Speaking of this new St Kitts hotel, Group Chief Executive of Mandarin Oriental, Edouard Ettedgui said, “We look forward to bringing Mandarin Oriental’s renowned levels of luxury hospitality to this beautiful Caribbean destination. Mandarin Oriental, St. Kitts, along with the extensive facilities of the overall peninsula development, will further enhance the appeal of St. Kitts as an international destination of choice for leisure travellers from around the world.”
