St. Kitts Tourism Authority announced plans are progressing for a new Six Senses resort to open in St. Kitts.
On Thursday May 17 the Minister of Tourism for St. Kitts, the Hon. Lindsay F.P. Grant, met with nearly 30 team members from the Six Senses resort to discuss the development.
The hotel resort, which will be a Caribbean and Latin America debut for the Six Senses brand, is scheduled to open in the last quarter of 2021.
It will be set on 41 acres of a former sugar plantation in the La Vallee area of St. Kitts amidst gentle hills rolling down to a long stretch of sandy Caribbean beach.
All projected 70 pool villas and The Retreat will be nestled within the island’s lush natural environment and offer scenic views of the landscape and the sea.
Hon. Mr. Lindsay F.P. Grant said: “It is exciting to see the team already hard at work to create what is sure to become an exceptional product and to see how passionate they are about what they’re doing. The Six Senses property will add yet another signature hotel brand to our growing portfolio of accommodations, which includes a number of top lifestyle hotel brands opening in the next few years that is un-paralleled in the Eastern Caribbean. Furthermore, it will provide significant economic benefits for the people of the Federation including the creation of over 300 jobs for our local citizens in the construction phases alone with several hundred more becoming available once the hotel is open.”
The new Six Senses resort debut will mark yet another inaugural property in the region by a premier hotel brand for St. Kitts following the opening of the Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour in November 2017. St. Kitts Tourism Authority has also announced plans for a Ritz-Carlton Resort to open in St. Kitts in 2021.
Six Senses is a signature hospitality brand that is committed to sustainability and service. Each of its properties has a distinctive and diverse personality that makes use of the natural land topography. The brand’s award-winning best practices include environmental performance of each property and support for the preservation of natural and cultural heritage, while enhancing social and economic benefits to local communities in destinations where Six Senses operates.
The Six Senses resort is a project of Range Developments, which also led the development of the Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour.
