ST. KITTS – The opening of The Beach House restaurant and Bungalows at Christophe Harbour have brought new levels of style and sophistication to St. Kitts and represent the first components of the new project, a 2,500-acre resort on the island’s southeastern peninsula that will also include a Mandarin Oriental hotel, luxury real estate, Tom Fazio-designed golf course, mega yacht harbour, upscale shopping, and more.
The Beach House is an inviting 60-seat restaurant and 30-seat open-air lounge. Housed in a Colonial-style structure refreshed with Caribbean and contemporary design, The Beach House frames panoramic views of the ocean and the nearby island of Nevis. Boaters can tie up at the restaurant’s private dock, sip tropical drinks on the veranda, or relax in palm-shaded hammocks.
At helm of The Beach House is Eustace Guishard, who served as the General Manager of Cap Juluca, and was part of its development team. During his 1997-2006 tenure there, Cap Juluca was consistently cited among the Caribbean’s best properties.
Just steps away from The Beach House are four luxurious bungalows, also managed by Guishard, designed for the exclusive use of prospective real estate clients. Located a few feet from the beach, the 1,222-square-foot bungalows blend naturally into the surroundings and impart the aura of a lush outdoor overnight experience. Each bungalow features Amish hand-hewn logs, wood-shingled roofs, and custom mahogany shutters and doors. Large glass and louvered sliding walls slide open directly to the beach, revealing expansive views. Each Bungalow also offers a private plunge pool, gazebo, and outdoor shower.
“We are delighted to give travelers and local residents a taste of the luxurious offerings to come,” says Buddy Darby, chairman & CEO of Kiawah Development Partners.
