A New Boutique Caribbean Retreat on St Kitts
ST KITTS, November 19, 2010 – The luxury lifestyle experts behind the exclusive Charleston-based Kiawah Island and Ireland’s Lodge At Doonbeg are proud to announce the opening of Turtle Beach Bungalows, part of the emerging Christophe Harbour development on the Caribbean Leeward Island of St. Kitts.
The island’s most upscale property, Turtle Beach Bungalows is one of the first stages in Christophe Harbour, a 2500-acre residential real estate development which will include a 300-acre mega-yacht harbour, marina village, private beach club with bar and grille, two luxury hotels, and spectacular 18-hole Tom Fazio designed golf course.
“The Turtle Beach Bungalows offer by far the finest accommodations on St. Kitts with the unique benefit of private beach access right outside the door,” said LeGrand Elebash, Chief Operating Officer of Christophe Harbour. “The availability of the bungalows represents a major shift on the island, as it swings its focus from the sugar industry to tourism.”
Dotted along the dunes of the eponymous Turtle Beach all four individual bungalows named after natural local botanicals are made of hand-hewn logs and showcase elegant dark wood floors, subtle Caribbean flair, including framed sago palm leaves, and massive marble slab showers. Three walls of plantation-style shutters and sliding glass doors open onto unobstructed views of the Atlantic Ocean and St. Kitts’ neighboring sister-island, Nevis. Nightly rates that include a continental breakfast delivered to each bungalow are $450 USD June-October and $550 USD November-May.
Just beyond the ocean-facing sliding glass door each unit has a tiered patio – nearly as large as the bungalow itself – with a gazebo sitting area for early morning breakfasts and an individual plunge pool for late-night soaks. Adjacent to the front door is an outdoor all-copper shower where guests can rinse off after an ocean swim.
The property’s seaside restaurant, The Beach House (awarded a Fodor’s Choice Gold Award 2010), has seating for 90 guests in the main dining area, a full cocktail bar as well as a second floor Member’s lounge which all overlook the water and sand flanked by massive palms and an illuminated pier. Executive Chef Lionel Garnier, who supplies many of the dishes with herbs grown in the garden behind the restaurant, features a menu with highlights including sweet carrot and crab soup, lobster tempura salad and spicy beef tenderloin carpaccio.
Island activities, arranged by Turtle Beach Bungalows concierge Kathleen Brownsdon, include ocean side massages ($100/hour), private catamaran rentals ($480 small, $560 large), water taxis to Nevis ($160), fishing charters ($500), a volcano/rainforest hike ($95), and Zipline ($89).
