With a slew of new hotel projects on stream, St Kitts and Nevis’ government says it is planning to significantly increase the number of hotels in the twin-island federation.
“Within a period of two to three years we expect to more than double the number of hotel rooms that we have available in the Federation,” St Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Dr Denzil Douglas said this weekend.
There are a series of new projects already underway, including the Park Hyatt St Kitts, the Imperial, the Pelican Bay, the Koi Resort and Residences and the Heldon Estate Hotel, among others.
The surge of development has come in large part due to St Kitts and Nevis’ Citizenship By Investment project, which has led to much of the investment in the sector.
Another property, the long-awaited Kittitian Hill project, expects to open its hotel at the end of this year.
“This will help achieve our medium-term goal of more than doubling the number of stay-over visitors that grace our shores each year,” Douglas said.
