I was very lucky to be invited to an exclusive dinner organized by the St Kitts and Nevis Tourism Authority. I was one of 25 travel professionals who were guests for a dinner and presentation in Canterbury. We were honoured that many of those presenting had flown in that day from the Islands, including the Tourism Minister and his wife! He spoke of the islands’ warmth and how they offered the ‘quintessential Caribbean’.
The tiny island of St Kitts has a big offering for couples and families wanting a relaxed Caribbean experience. Nevis is only 6 minutes away by speed boat, making for an ideal twin centre holiday. You can easily explore the two friendly islands at your own pace by car or take a trip on the St Kitts Scenic Railway to get a fantastic perspective and guided commentary.
When we think of the Caribbean, we think beaches. St Kitts and Nevis offer a beautiful unspoilt and uncrowded coastline to enjoy! In contrast you can explore botanical gardens, zip-line through the rainforest or hike the islands’ volcanic peaks.
Sugar, spice, rum, mango, hot sauce, and seafood – the food on the island is a big part of the experience! Staying at your accommodation on a bed and breakfast basis is best. There are many fantastic restaurants that are too good to miss, and Frigate Bay offers a style of nightlife to suit all. The same can be said for the range of accommodation available. If you like large (never huge) hotels with a name you recognize, the Park Hyatt, Marriot and Four Seasons are beautiful and have all the facilities you could want for. If your preference if for smaller family run properties with some history there are stunning resorts in breath-taking locations such as the Mount Nevis and Oualie Beach Resort.
St Kitts and Nevis offer a romantic, idyllic Caribbean experience and so, so much more! Come for festivals, sports events and wildlife… goodness! I could go on!
Feel free to give me a call to talk about whether St Kitts and Nevis are the perfect destination for your next holiday.
