Little Saint Kitts is an unspoiled gem in the Lesser Antilles; a former British colony whose lush volcanic hillsides tumble down to the deep blue Caribbean, and an idyllic spot for a new Ritz-Carlton resort.
Set to open in 2021, the project will feature 125 luxurious suites and 25 branded villas and residences, plus multiple swimming pools, restaurants and a first class spa. The resort occupies a prime spot on the Caribbean-facing Southeast Peninsula of St. Kitts, near to neighbouring island of Nevis and within easy access of Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport, the island capital of Basseterre and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Brimstone Hill.
The property will be part of a larger project covering a 254-acre site on the peninsula, which is also home to the recently opened Park Hyatt St Kitts, which opened in November. Along with Belle Mont Farm at Kittitian Hill, the latter is one of just two luxury properties presently on the island. Long known as a popular stop-off point on Caribbean cruises, St. Kitts is one of a handful of Caribbean islands to offer a citizenship by investment programme, whereby foreigners who make a significant investment in local real estate can qualify for citizenship.
