Basseterre, St. Kitts, 22nd May, 2018 (MyVueNews.com) – Minister of Tourism Lindsay Grant met with a development team of the planned Six Senses Spa Resort – St. Kitts, when they held a working visit to the federation.
The 30-plus-member team was on island to begin creating the framework and design for the resort. Included in the team were architects, Project Managers, landscape engineers, Interior Designers and Marketing Experts.
Using the Park Hyatt Resort as their base, the team explored various concepts for the design, for what will be a world-class luxury resort, the developers have said.
Following a meeting with the team, Minister 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.”
Grant also said, “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 unparalleled in the Eastern Caribbean.
The Minister continued, “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.”
Six Senses currently operates resorts in such exotic and glamorous locales as the Seychelles, Fiji, France, Oman, the Maldives, Thailand, Singapore, Turkey, Vietnam, Portugal and China.
The Six Senses resort is a project of Range Developments, which also led the development of the Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour. Range Developments is an investment and hospitality company operating across the Eastern Caribbean that focuses on the development of iconic properties in places of remarkable natural beauty.
In keeping with Six Senses’ commitment to the environment, the resort’s 70 villas will be built with sustainable and repurposed materials. Each villa will have a private plunge pool.
Accommodations will feature Naturalmat mattresses and energy-efficient lighting and air conditioning that can be adjusted with the touch of an iPad. Arriving guests will be transported to their villa by electric buggy.
Dining venues will highlight Caribbean seafood and produce from local growers and the resort’s fruit, vegetable and spice gardens.
Other facilities will include the Rum Shack, a swim-up bar at the main pool, the Grow With Six Senses teen center and kids’ club, the Six Senses Spa with a yoga pavilion and gym, and an on-site dive center.
The project is slated to begin in September 2018.
