St. Kitts: First Impressions of the Island and the St. Kitts Marriott Resort.

By Posted in - St. Kitts on March 7th, 2012 St. Kitts Marriott a view from a room.


As the American Eagle propeller plane set down in St. Kitts, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect.

Prior to my landing at St. Kitts International Airport, the only islands I had ever visited were Coronado and Alcatraz–both in California, and the latter isn’t even inhabited. So, when I stepped onto the tamarack into the tropical breeze I was pretty much hooked. (For those in the Northeast think of those summer days when a storm is just around the corner.)

Maybe it was the warm air, maybe it was the island’s lushness, maybe it was experiencing the smallest and most friendliest international airport in the world or, just maybe, it was all these things combined. In other words, they had me at hello, and Lavern and the rest of the staff at my final destination, St. Kitts Marriott and The Royal Beach Casino, were only further proof of my new found epiphany.

By the time I was standing in the lobby of the St. Kitts Marriott sipping my welcome drink, a virgin rum punch, I was a believer in the fact that maybe, just maybe, St. Kitts is a necessity for the soul.

Here’s some snapshots from day! Stay tuned for more from the island of St. Kitts.

    I’ve been bouncing around the Caribbean since October, and in a few weeks I’m headed back to my favourite Caribbean island: Grenada! Love it. (But don’t go. And don’t write about it. It’s our secret!) 😉

      @Nora – The Professional Hobo, Your secret is safe with us!;) I’m so jealous that you’ve been in the Caribbean that long. I really dig it down there and can’t wait to get back. But until then, at least I can follow along on your journey. 🙂

    For me it’s a tie between Maui and Manhattan, obviously for completely different reasons. Enjoy your time in the sun.

      @Nat – A Cook Not Mad, Thanks Nat! I had a blast. Actually, I forgot I was in Manhattan last year around this time for about 24 hours and I did really dig it; though,the winds were a little more bitter. 🙂

        Am off to Barbados (which I have been to before), and then Trinidad and Dominica. For the cricket. Can’t wait – a beautiful part of the world!

          @Tash, Oh man, I am jealous! 🙂 That sounds like a great trip! I haven’t been to any of those places, but now that I got a taste for the region I can’t wait to explore more of it.

    I was in St Kitts a long time ago with my then 7-year-old. Remember it as being very child-friendly, too 🙂
