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