After spending months in lockdown, more couples are opting for destination elopements and micro weddings as the world slowly reopens. Consider Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour as the ultimate wedding escape – a luxurious resort, an exotic location, and your nearest and dearest surrounding you (even if it’s just your betrothed). The dual-island nation of Saint Kitts and Nevis is an absolute jewel of the West Indies, where couples can indulge in both a destination wedding escape and a luxury honeymoon, all in one go. Park Hyatt Saint Kitts has temporarily suspended operations due to Covid-19 but is now taking reservations for October 1, 2020 and beyond. It’s the perfect time to start planning those Caribbean getaways.
The Resort: Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour
A delectable selection of signature restaurants are available, serving both local and international cuisine, and guests are also free to arrange private dining experiences (think barefoot, starlit dinners on the beach or a romantic meal served in a waterfall cabana). The Great House is open daily for breakfast from 7 a.m. - 11 a.m. Fisherman’s Village offers ocean-to-table dining in a relaxed setting, with lunch being served from noon - 3 p.m., dinner from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m., and the bar is open from 3 p.m. - 11 p.m. Fane's Beach Bar and the Rampart Pool Bar are both open from 10 a.m. until sunset; and Fleming's Bar and the Stone Barn will remained closed until December 20, 2020. Fun fact: The stone barns located on St. Kitts were historically used to protect crops during the island’s wet season.
Although wedding and honeymoon packages are available, every aspect of a wedding escape to Park Hyatt St. Kitts Christophe Harbour is fully customizable. From custom décor to destination dining, the resort’s full-service planning team is at the ready to create an unforgettable and bespoke wedding experience.
As if golden beaches and towering green mountains weren’t majestic enough, Park Hyatt Saint Kitts offers a modern and relaxing wedding escape, minus the pretense. The resort boasts roomy suites – many with individual pools and private sundecks with Caribbean Sea views – and a clean, contemporary aesthetic.
“The flowers were my favorite,” the bride adds. “I knew we were in good hands with Eddie, so during our meetings I really felt so comfortable with any direction he wanted to go in. He is a true artist! I saw my flowers for the first time when the doors opened to the church and I began walking down the aisle. My dad and I just looked around in amazement at how stunning the arrangements were. It was like sunshine. One of our favorite moments was having Super Sako, a popular Armenian rapper, perform. It was so cool to see everyone’s reactions when he got up on stage. It was like being at a concert.”
The Dress: BERTA
When you’re escaping to the islands, anything goes. Be as daring as you wish with an ultra-high slit or opt for a flowy BERTA wedding dress with enough bling to sparkle in the sun.
The Earrings: Oscar Heyman
These simple Oscar Heyman studs are elegant and sophisticated, yet practical enough to stay out of the way when your beachy waves are blowing in the breeze.
The Shoes: Giuseppe Zanotti
Sand and stilettos may not mix; but for those date nights and special dinners at Park Hyatt St. Kitts, these strappy heels by Giuseppe Zanotti are a stylish complement to any designer resort ensemble.
