Even in the tiniest corners of the globe, love can flourish and bloom. One such destination is the dual island paradise of St. Kitts and Nevis, comprising the smallest nation in the Western Hemisphere. Despite their miniature size, these twin gems sparkle with a radiant allure, beckoning lovers and adventurers to lose themselves in a symphony of romance and exploration. Divided by a slim body of water called ‘The Narrows’, the islands are treasured for their tapestry of white sand beaches, tropical rainforests, volcanic peaks and historical monuments. As I come to land in St. Kitts, I gasp at the sheer beauty of their bird’s eye perspective. Viewed from above, the islands’ captivating natural formation resembles an exclamation mark suspended over the Caribbean Sea; a breathtaking sight that still remains vivid in my memory to this day.

Arrive In Style

The serene ambience of St. Kitts provides an idyllic setting for a memorable destination wedding or honeymoon, characterized by seamless hospitality that begins long before you set foot in the Caribbean. British Airways provides a smooth and pleasant flight from London Gatwick to Robert L. Bradshaw International Airport, lasting approximately 10 hours with a brief interlude in Antigua, all without needing to leave the plane.

The KayanJet Lounge VIP experience is the epitome of luxury as you begin your Kittitian adventure. As the warm caress of Caribbean sunshine illuminates your face upon disembarking the plane, you’ll spy a Porsche Cayenne on the tarmac waiting to whisk you away to a private terminal. Here at the KayanJet boutique lounge, guests are refreshed after the flight with a cooling glass of bubbles and a delicious platter of gourmet snacks, while the concierge sails you through fast-track immigration and takes care of your luggage for your onward journey.

KayanJet’s exclusive lounge experience for visitors arriving into and departing St. Kitts starts from US$180 per person, each way.

To experience the full breadth of what St. Kitts has to offer, from its cloud-brushing peaks to its crystalline shores, I recommended staying at a combination of resorts on both sides of the island…
