Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour, the Hotel Review

For our Caribbean getaway, we stayed at Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour and spent five perfect nights there. Located on the island of St. Kitts of the little country of Saint Kitts and Nevis in the secluded Banana Bay in the Caribbean Sea, this luxurious property is considered to be one of the best Hyatt properties in the world. Let’s take an in-depth look at everything this Park Hyatt has to offer.

We booked our five-night stay using Hyatt Points and paid a total of 170k Hyatt Points for a Standard 2 Queen Beds Room. The cash rate at the time of booking was $1,319 per night for a Standard Room, which means we got ourselves a pretty sweet deal, redeeming Hyatt Points at 4.1 cents per point!

We also redeemed one of our Suite Upgrade Awards. So that you know, we applied our Suite Upgrade award months before we arrived to secure our upgrade to a Beachside Suite in advance.

The power of a Suite Upgrade Award is that you can lock in a Standard Suite way before your stay (if a Standard Suite is available for booking, of course), don’t just try to apply it last minute at the check-in as the hotel might run out of Standard Suites on those dates. You can read our Hyatt Suite Upgrade Awards guide here.

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

We arrived at Park Hyatt St. Kitts in the afternoon, around 2 pm, and were immediately greeted by a friendly staff, who took care of our luggage (one of these days, we might learn how to travel light 🫢).

While waiting for the front desk concierge to check us in, we were offered a refreshing towel and a choice of drink – a rum punch or a fruit punch. While the adults opted for the former, the girls happily accepted their “lemonades”.

The concierge confirmed our Beachside Suite upgrade and informed us that the room still needed a few more minutes to get ready.

Meanwhile, we inquired about possibly getting upgraded to a Plunge Pool Suite. Plunge Pool Rooftop Suite is a Premium Suite and requires an extra charge paid per night. We negotiated the price, and since the Plunge Pool Suite wasn’t available for our entire stay, we agreed to switch rooms after spending two nights in a Standard Beachside Suite.

The Beachside Suite is one of the Standard Suites at Park Hyatt St. Kitts. When applying our Suite Upgrade Award, we had two options to choose from: an Ocean View Suite (on the second floor) and a Beachside Suite (on the ground floor), and we opted for the latter.

Our spacious 688 square feet Beachside Suite featured a living room with an oversized couch, one King Bed bedroom, and a private 198 square feet deck with ocean views (we stayed in Building 6). We loved the minimalistic design, the light tones, and the hardwood floors!

A contemporary-looking bathroom area had a deep soaking tub, a double sink counter, and a separate shower cabin with a rain shower.

Plunge Pool Rooftop Suite (a Premium Suite)

As mentioned above, we have been upgraded to a Premium Suite for the last three nights of our stay. If you are unsure if paying extra cash for your upgrade is worth it, trust us, it definitely is. This might be the best room we have ever stayed at so far!

The 725 sq. ft. Plunge Pool Rooftop Suite has an additional private deck of 615 sq. ft. with a private plunge pool! This is the view you get from Building 2, but fortunately, all the rooms at Park Hyatt St. Kitts have a sea view!

In the Suite, you’ll find a spacious living room with a couch and a small dining set. In the picture below, you can see how we added a roll-away bed and a crib for our girls, and the room still wasn’t cramped.

The bedroom had one King bed. Floor-to-ceiling windows allowed you to enjoy the gorgeous Caribbean Sea and the neighboring island of Nevis views.

Also, both Suites that we stayed at had sliding doors separating the bedroom from the living room.

Our private wooden 615 sq. ft. deck featured a dining area with a full dining set, a couch with a coffee table, and a couple of lounge couches. The plunge pool might have been a little cold for our liking, but it was not as hot outside during our stay as it could get on the island. In fact, the water in the ocean was a bit warmer than the water in the plunge pool 🫢.

The bathroom setup was similar to the Beachside Suite – a deep soaking tub, a rather spacious shower cabin with a rain shower, and a double sink counter.

Dining

Dining at Park Hyatt St. Kitts included three onsite restaurants: Great House, Fisherman’s Village, and an adult-only Stone Bar. Reservations are highly encouraged and can be made through the concierge or the Tock app. We made no reservations prior to our arrival and would reserve a table a day in advance.

Both Great House and Fisherman’s Village offered kids’ menus and provided highchairs.

Overall, we liked dinner at Great House better than at Fisherman’s Village.

Great House

Great House is the restaurant located in the center of the resort, and it takes its name from the great houses that each sugar plantation used to have. Great House is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and is the only place that serves breakfast at Park Hyatt St. Kitts.

Breakfast

Breakfast was served both menu and buffet-style. As Globalists, we got a daily complimentary breakfast for the four of us.

A family-friendly lagoon-shaped pool became one of those postcard-looking spots representing the resort itself. Overlooking the Caribbean Sea and the sister island of Nevis, this infinity pool starts with very shallow waters, allowing your little ones to enjoy the pool by themselves.

One of the most appreciated amenities that Park Hyatt St. Kitts had to offer was a complimentary Kids Club!

The club is open daily from 9 am to 5 pm for kids 3-12 years old. It also held daily 10:30 am and 2:30 pm crafts and activities. Our girls really enjoyed cupcake decorating class and making an island keepsake with sand and glitter.

The ladies at the camp were extremely nice, and our girls wanted to come back.

The Beach

The beach at Park Hyatt St. Kitts is swimmable, and the water is delightful. When we visited in April, the water temperature remained around 80°F throughout the day, occasionally reaching 82°F in the afternoon. Although some seaweed was present on the shore, the water became significantly clearer just a few yards out.

Complimentary Kayaking

Complimentary kayaking at Park Hyatt St. Kitts is undoubtedly a highlight of any family vacation at this luxurious resort. Roman and Sophia had an absolute blast navigating the crystal-clear waters of the Caribbean Sea.

Complimentary Snorkeling Gear

Recreational Beach Hut also offered complimentary snorkeling tours.

Jet Ski Tours

You could take a jet ski tour from the resort’s pier every Tuesday-Saturday. The cost was $300 for two people.

Boat to Nevis

Taking a boat trip to the neighboring island of Nevis is a must-do activity for guests staying at Park Hyatt St. Kitts. The hotel offers a daily charter boat departing multiple times a day right from the pier by the Fisherman’s Village restaurant. The concierge at the hotel can book you the boat ride (as a room charge) as well as arrange your activities on the island, such as taking a guided auto tour around the island where you can learn about its history.

The boat to Nevis had cost us $30 per adult and $15 per child (kids under 3 ride for free) one way.

Complimentary Rum tasting

We attended a complimentary rum tasting at Great House (reservations are required). It was a really fun yet educational experience that we enjoyed a lot and we would definitely recommend it.

Bottom Line

Park Hyatt St. Kitts offers an unforgettable luxury experience for families, with its exceptional service, exquisite dining options, and range of engaging activities for all ages, making it the perfect choice for an idyllic Caribbean getaway.

  1. Awesome review! We are taking our kids to the PHSK this spring. Do you have any recommendations for airport transfers with kids? We would rather not check car seats if we don’t have to.
