Location is everything. If you’re looking for an idyllic island getaway, then St. Kitts and Nevis are it, and the Marriott St. Kitts Beach Club is the premiere resort in the country. Part of the Leeward Islands in the Lesser Antilles, St. Kitts is 1,300 miles southeast of Miami. Travel to the island is either by plane or a cruise port visit.
As Marriott Vacation Club owners, my husband and I prefer a longer stay with plenty of adventure and relaxation time built into a visit and this island paradise is so worth the extra time.
Visitors can choose either to rent a car for maximum freedom to explore, or taxi to the Marriott St. Kitts Beach Club resort located just 2.3 miles from the airport. If you don’t need a rental car for the entire trip, you can also rent one for a day from the resort.
Two Properties = Double the Fun
Guests coming to St. Kitts are a lucky lot considering Marriott not only offers a vacation stay in a fully-equipped home away from home vacation club villa, but adjacent to the vacation club, there’s the St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino. This means that vacation club guests can enjoy the amenities of both oceanfront properties during their stay.
These amenities include the use of three freshwater pools and two whirlpool spas between the two properties, along with island fare and tropical drinks at any of the hotel’s eight restaurants and three lounges. Vacation club guests also have access to the Royal Beach Casino and Emerald Mist Spa.
Staying at St. Kitts Marriott Beach Club
The St. Kitts Marriott Beach Club offers two and three-bedroom island-inspired villas which means travelers can make this all about vacationing with family and friends.
The two-bedrooms also include two full baths and the three-bedroom offers a third bath, so each villa room has their own bathroom privacy. Two-bedrooms can sleep up to eight guests with the pull-out sofa and the three-bedroom sleeping capacity is 10 with a pull-out as well.
Villas are completely furnished and feature a full kitchen, living room, dining room along with a laundry area with a washer and dryer. We love the tile floors because, goodness knows, there will always be sand between our toes when we return from the beach.
St. Kitts Marriott Beach Club Review
You can’t beat an island resort that fronts a palm-lined pink private beach and the calm sparkling multi-hued waters of Frigate Bay. We also love the many shaded cabanas on the beach for resort guests.
The property features lush tropical vegetation as we’d expect, but it blends in perfectly with the island vibe feel reminding us that, “yep, you are in paradise.”
For those who like to grill like our family does, there are plenty of barbeque grills located throughout the resort, including a picnic area should guests decide to eat outdoors.
If you’re looking for more to do on property than just the pools or beach, you’re in the right place as the St. Kitts Marriott Beach Club and Marriott resort both offer lots of fun activities. A basketball court, table tennis, cornhole, and shuffleboard are available for the more competitive types.
Aerobics classes are also an option, and the fitness center is open 24 hours a day offering cardio equipment along with free weights and fitness classes.
Golfers can play nine or 18 holes on the picturesque Royal St. Kitts Golf Club. Those looking for some pampering will love the Emerald Mist Spa with its many treatment options including a steam room and therapy baths.
When you’re ready to see more of St. Kitts and the adjacent Nevis, vacation club concierges are extremely helpful in finding the right activity for you, your family and/or friends.
These include zip lining, snorkeling, boat tours, botanical gardens, hiking through an exotic rainforest, a day trip to the quieter island of Nevis, scenic rail trips, historic fortress, ATV tours, and of course lots of gorgeous beaches to enjoy. And did we mention black sand beaches? This definitely distinguishes St. Kitts and Nevis from other Caribbean isles.
An unknown author once said “Paradise is a state of mind.” While that is likely true, there’s nothing like touching, feeling, smelling, and tasting it…for real.
