Basseterre, St. Kitts (August 11th, 2015) – The St. Kitts Tourism Authority is pleased to announce that St. Kitts is officially ranked #34 of the “52 Places to Go in 2015” by The New York Times. It is one of just three Caribbean countries to make the list.
The St. Kitts section of the article is written by Baz Dreisinger, who has previously visited the island for Music Festival. She noted that St. Kitts is known for its Music Festival, but that new hotel developments will put the island “on the map for luxury.” The article further cites Christophe Harbour including its new mega-yacht marina, Salt Plage beach club, Tom Fazio golf course and the Caribbean’s first Park Hyatt along with Kittitian Hill, which she calls “not just a lavish resort but a sustainable community.” The YU Lounge, which “will make the influx of upscale travelers feel right at home,” is also included.
