The Park Hyatt St. Kitts opened late last year, and I’ve been wanting to plan a trip there. It’s a Category 7 World of Hyatt property, which is Hyatt’s highest category.

If you’re redeeming World of Hyatt points here, that means you’d pay either 30,000 points for a free night, or 15,000 points plus $300 for a Points + Cash booking (which is capacity controlled).

Depending on the time of year you’re booking, this may represent a good deal compared to the paid rate. For example, in late December paid rates here are over $1,000 per night (actually over $1,300 once you include taxes and service charges), so redeeming 30,000 World of Hyatt points, which I value at ~$450, is a relative bargain.


Obviously St. Kitts is a highly seasonal destination. Peak season is from December through April, May through June is often considered the sweet spot (it’s quieter, and weather isn’t bad yet), and then July through November is the quieter period, and largely coincides with the hurricane season.

I’ve seen that this hotel has a huge variance in terms of the rates (as you’d expect), though I didn’t realize just how low the rates get. As noted by Mommy Points, the Park Hyatt St. Kitts has a great promotion at the moment. With this promotion you can receive a fourth night free plus a $300 per person resort credit.

This promotion is valid for bookings made by June 30, 2018, and for stays through July 26, 2018. Personally I’d feel comfortable going to St. Kitts in June or July (I’m not sure I’d want to go in August or September, though).

Just how good are the rates? In some cases the rates are $340 per night, so when you average in the fourth night free, that’s an average of $255 per night over a four night stay. This is for a four night stay in early July, but I see similar rates on other dates.

A four night stay would cost $1,244.40 including all taxes and fees, which is an average of $311.10 per night. That doesn’t factor in the $600 resort credit you’d get if two people are traveling. If you were to value that at face value, that would lower the nightly cost including taxes and fees to $161.10.

Of course you’d still earn World of Hyatt points, and if you’re a Globalist member you could apply a Globalist Suite Upgrade, you’d be entitled to complimentary breakfast, and more. At those prices I’m very tempted to visit this resort.

In addition to these great rates, getting to St. Kitts can be cheap as well. American has tons of award availability between Miami and St. Kitts, so this is an excellent use of British Airways Avios, as you can redeem just 10,000 Avios in each direction for that flight.

  1. Seems like a great deal. But I must say, I hate how Hyatt shows the ‘fourth night free’ tab as the average price for each of 4 nights. It gets me really excited when I think the three paid nights are that price, plus a fourth zero cost night. Gets me every time. Ha!

  2. I was just there with my family 2 weeks ago using this rate. It was awesome and the free breakfast is incredible signing away $160 each day.

    Supposedly the Prive hundred dollar credit is stackable with this too.

    The food and drink is incredibly expensive so the resort credit goes fast although we found ordering kids meals even for adults to help that and be filling enough.

    Room service doesn’t cost any extra than the restaurant food either so for kids that is really nice to just eat in the room.

    Overall a great stay and we really enjoyed our Seaview Suite.

  3. I booked this rate 2 weeks ago to visit the resort at the end of june. As we are traveling me, my wife and our 2yr daughter, I’m curious to see If our daughter will be entitled to the $300 resort credit as well. By the rate description, I assume she is. But I’m getting prepared to get to check-in and they say it’s only for adults (although it doesn’t specify that during reservation) she is not a “paid” guest. Do you have any suggestion on how to deal with that? 🙂

  4. I stayed there with my wife in March of this year, paid 150,000 WOH points for 5 nights. Got upgraded to the Sea view suite because of globalist status. Resort is very quiet, if you’re looking for a great place to relax and unwind this is your place.

    The food there is quite expensive, we spent about $1300 on food and drinks for the 5 days, not including breakfast of course. Breakfast was amazing and you could get whatever you want for free as a globalist and their breakfast service was very friendly and attentive.

    The pool is where it really shines, relaxing, picturesque, and the weather there is the same everyday, 80s during the day, 70s at night, sunny most days.

    Taxi was $30 from the airport each way, about a 20 min drive, much better than the $100-200 PP service offered by the hotel.

    I wanna go back already and these cash rates are ohhhh so tempting. Enjoy your trip!

  5. Make sure every part of the trip is paid for with a card that has trip cancellation insurance in case tropical storms hit.

  6. Thought the $300 credit per person was for food and activities. In other words, it cannot be applied to room rate.

  7. @ Geoff — That’s correct, it can’t be applied towards the room rate. My subtraction math is assuming you’d otherwise spend that money at the hotel (which I imagine most people would do).

  8. I’m from St. Kitts. I would not obsess over potential hurricanes. The last one that passed by was in 2017 after several years without one. Traveling there in the summer is great. Also, the linked article is incorrect. There is no carnival in February. It is in December.

  9. @ Jerry F. — While it’s always a case of “your mileage may vary” with the Citi agents, it’s not supposed to be possible to get a fourth night free with Citi Prestige when the cost of the fourth night is zero. While the refund is averaged based on the average cost of each night, the rate for the last night has to be something other than zero. At least that’s how it’s supposed to work.

  10. Can you explain the BA conversion in more depth? My local airport is CVg, so interested to see how valuable Avios is to me. Thanks!

  11. Trying to piece this together for 7/4-7/8. Can’t get BA or Iberia website to match the saver availability that’s showing on AA.com or ExpertFlyer. So aggravating.

  12. @ Ben O. — Unfortunately there’s a glitch at the moment where BA isn’t showing a lot of AA award space, but if you call British Airways they should be able to book it by phone.

  13. It is a lovely hotel and the staff were very friendly and solicitous. Stayed in January 2018, not long after it opened. Surprisingly low occupancy then, but I bet you won’t see open rooms in January in future (they said they had been fully booked around Christmas). I used a free night (from Hyatt credit card — but that’s going away for this level hotel) and points for other nights.

    You are not close to much else — a nearby upscale restaurant was an estimated $20 in taxis, so you won’t save much — or maybe the outside meal will cost more with transportation. There are a few beach restaurants you can walk to (fairly quickly along a back way if you are agile or longer if you walk on the road). We tried one — it was decent enough and less expensive than the hotel, but a bit buggy. Because we enjoyed the hotel restaurants, we ate all meals (except the one beach meal) in the 3 hotel restaurants (ergo, you will definitely use any resort credit you have!). Expensive but well-prepared and of high quality, with many elements of gourmet food. The breakfast is an extensive buffet — don’t miss the back room (it’s the kitchen!) laden with more food. But we also managed some breakfasts on our own (granola bars and so forth) because the price for the hotel breakfast is high (I think it was $35pp) — and we can’t eat that much every day. On the other hand, considering resort prices on an island importing most food, and comparing to a simple continental breakfast in a major NYC hotel, well, go to St Kitt’s!

    Lucky, go and relax and enjoy yourself! It is a secluded area with beautiful views. The rooms are delightful and you will enjoy the beach and pool.
