Kittitian Hill, a contemporary Caribbean community for sustainable luxury living currently under construction on St. Kitts, has been added to the Preferred Residences exchange network.
Preferred residences is a hospitality branded membership and exchange program for luxury shared ownership resorts offered by an operating business of Interval Leisure Group.
Speaking at the 13th Annual Shared Ownership Investment Conference hosted by Interval International in Orlando, Florida, on Tuesday morning, Sen. Ricky Skerritt, minister of tourism and international transport, welcomed the good news for St Kitts tourism. The minister congratulated Interval International and Kittitian Hill for forging this important partnership which he said, “should serve our destination well in the future.”
Located on a 400-acre hillside site in the northern part of St. Kitts, Kittitian Hill, which was founded on the principles of holistic development, will feature a mix of whole and fractional ownership villas, cottages, and townhomes with views of the neighboring islands of St. Eustatius, Saba, St. Barth’s and St. Maarten.
One of its distinctive elements will be an artists’ village designed to celebrate the art and culture of Kittitian living while offering guests the opportunity to interact with the community by participating in local activities and events.
The village will include an array of fine dining and entertainment options, gourmet and duty-free shops and a creative arts center comprised of an amphitheater, cinema, artisan shops, and artists’ studios where visitors can purchase handmade jewelry and art.
Kittitian Hill will also offer upscale amenities and personalized services including concierge, in-room, and pre-arrival services; child care, a 20,000 square-foot destination spa featuring treatments indigenous to the region, a beach club with valet service, signature swimming pools with multi-level decks and outdoor hot tubs, a state-of-the-art fitness center, tennis courts, and an 18-hole Ian Woosnam designed championship golf course and clubhouse.
The first phase of construction is slated for completion in November 2012 and features hotel cottages, villas, the golf course and clubhouse, the beach club, pools, restaurants, bars, and shops. Phase two is scheduled to begin the following year and will include the village, spa and spa cottages. All components of Kittitian Hill will be managed by Sedona Resorts International, a division of Sedona Resorts. Sedona Resorts has developed and operated the award- winning Enchantment Resort, Mi Amo Spa, the Tides Inn, and a number of other highly acclaimed properties.
