St. Kitts picks Marriott resort for award

The St. Kitts Tourism Authority has announced the St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino as its pick for 2007 Hotel of the Year. 
Since opening its doors in late 2002, the St. Kitts Marriott Resort has been receiving high marks from guests and industry analysts.  This award highlights the St. Kitts Marriott’s commitment to service
and its community.

“This is the second time the resort has been given this honor and we are all delighted to achieve this ranking once again,” said George Landa, general manager for the St. Kitts Marriott.  “We strive to
provide our guests with the finest resort experience possible while maintaining the St. Kitts spirit.”

The St. Kitts Tourism Authority ranks the island’s hotels annually and the decision of Hotel of the Year is determined based on very specific criteria.  Customer service, partnership with the tourism authority,
use of local produce and local entertainment, tourism/community involvement and marketing innovations are all considered during judging.  The St. Kitts Marriott Resort first won Hotel of the Year in 2004.

The St. Kitts Marriott Resort and The Royal Beach Casino is located in the Frigate Bay area of the island, just a 10-minute drive from the airport and capital city Basseterre.  The resort offers 573 guest rooms
and luxurious suites.  The golden sands of North Frigate Bay Beach, a championship golf course and the largest Vegas-style casino in the Caribbean help provide an unparalleled vacation experience.  The
resort also features a revitalizing spa, meeting facilities, the Pirates of St. Kitts Kids Club program, eight restaurants and two lounges that make it the ideal destination for families, couples and corporate travelers.
