The Park Hyatt St. Kitts opened late last year, and I’ve been wanting to plan a trip there. It’s a Category 7 World of Hyatt property, which is Hyatt’s highest category.
If you’re redeeming World of Hyatt points here, that means you’d pay either 30,000 points for a free night, or 15,000 points plus $300 for a Points + Cash booking (which is capacity controlled).
Depending on the time of year you’re booking, this may represent a good deal compared to the paid rate. For example, in late December paid rates here are over $1,000 per night (actually over $1,300 once you include taxes and service charges), so redeeming 30,000 World of Hyatt points, which I value at ~$450, is a relative bargain.
Obviously St. Kitts is a highly seasonal destination. Peak season is from December through April, May through June is often considered the sweet spot (it’s quieter, and weather isn’t bad yet), and then July through November is the quieter period, and largely coincides with the hurricane season.
I’ve seen that this hotel has a huge variance in terms of the rates (as you’d expect), though I didn’t realize just how low the rates get. As noted by Mommy Points, the Park Hyatt St. Kitts has a great promotion at the moment. With this promotion you can receive a fourth night free plus a $300 per person resort credit.
This promotion is valid for bookings made by June 30, 2018, and for stays through July 26, 2018. Personally I’d feel comfortable going to St. Kitts in June or July (I’m not sure I’d want to go in August or September, though).
Just how good are the rates? In some cases the rates are $340 per night, so when you average in the fourth night free, that’s an average of $255 per night over a four night stay. This is for a four night stay in early July, but I see similar rates on other dates.
A four night stay would cost $1,244.40 including all taxes and fees, which is an average of $311.10 per night. That doesn’t factor in the $600 resort credit you’d get if two people are traveling. If you were to value that at face value, that would lower the nightly cost including taxes and fees to $161.10.
Of course you’d still earn World of Hyatt points, and if you’re a Globalist member you could apply a Globalist Suite Upgrade, you’d be entitled to complimentary breakfast, and more. At those prices I’m very tempted to visit this resort.
In addition to these great rates, getting to St. Kitts can be cheap as well. American has tons of award availability between Miami and St. Kitts, so this is an excellent use of British Airways Avios, as you can redeem just 10,000 Avios in each direction for that flight.
Is anyone considering taking advantage of this great Park Hyatt St. Kitts promotion? To those who have been to the resort, what was your experience like?
