Park Hyatt St Kitts opens with 37,000sq ft Miraval spa

by Jane Kitchen | 02 Nov 2017

The first Park Hyatt in the Caribbean has opened, the Park Hyatt St Kitts, which also includes the first Miraval Life in Balance spa to open since Hyatt acquired Miraval earlier this year.

Miraval Life in Balance Spa at Park Hyatt St Kitts Christophe Harbour is described as a “37,752sq ft (3,000sq m) state-of-the-art oasis.”

The spa entrance and reception area provide a view of Mount Nevis and also overlook the Rampart Pool and The Narrows – the strait separating St Kitts from its sister island, Nevis.

The spa’s design features natural stone walls with nine treatment rooms, including three couples’ treatment rooms with heated private plunge pools and outdoor showers.

Guests can also take advantage of the 24-hour, 1,750sq ft (162.5sq m) fitness centre at The Sugar Mill, which is also home to yoga and meditation experiences.

“Wellness and mindfulness are becoming increasingly important to our guests, and the opening of the Miraval Life in Balance Spa in St Kitts is yet another way we demonstrate care for our guests,” said Marc Ellin, global head of Miraval Group. “This spa integrates the essence of Miraval – an industry leader in the destination spa wellness resort category – into a breathtaking West Indian setting for an unforgettable luxury experience.”

The 126-bedroom resort is set within Christophe Harbour and spans the secluded beach of Banana Bay. Developed by Range Developments, the 78 rooms and 48 suites are designed by architects Arcadia Design, with interiors by GA Design International and incorporate local materials and intertwining contemporary architecture with colonial design. A three-bedroom Presidential Villa has its own wellness area, private infinity pool, personal butler and private chef.

“Our discerning global guests will be welcomed with personalised service and contemporary elegance surrounded by sophisticated design, world-class artwork, the finest culinary expressions and Miraval’s deep-rooted expertise in wellness,” said Myles McGourty senior vice president, Latin America and Caribbean.

The resort also offers a series of enriching 'journeys', including a walk with an island historian and rainforest excursions.
