St Kitts Nevis Restaurant Week 2015: Day 1 Arrival at St Kitts Marriott

 

St. Kitts Nevis first ever Restaurant Week was this July 2015! I loved being invited and have many photos, videos and articles to share from our adventures on the island. This was my very first visit to the beautiful island of St. Kitts. I did spend years floating around the Caribbean with Princess Cruises, and I loved seeing one of the islands that I had missed!

KelleeSetGo and I left Los Angeles by American Airlines and met up with Cathy Preece and Breanna J Wilson of Scoot Scoot Luggage in Miami.

Upon arrival in St. Kitts, we were whisked away by Porsche Cayenne to the YU Lounge where we relaxed in air conditioning on comfortable couches and sipped champagne. Our arrival treats included pumpkin spinach fritters, meatballs and chicken pate. Our luggage was collected and both customs and immigration were handled for us. This service costs $150 in either direction and is amazing. It seems like it would be for private jet clients only but you can fly commercial and take advantage of this luxurious first class treat.

At the St. Kitts Marriott, we were welcomed with Ting without the Sting (a local grapefruit soda drink). My room was very comfortable with plenty of room not only to relax but also hula hoop in the mornings. From the balcony, I could see the welcoming pool and went for a stroll on the beach. After flying all night, I had to pass on the happy hour by the pool or I might have slept through our musical evening events.

Sprat Net is a jamming jumping lively dinner choice. On Wednesdays, there is live music and it is the place to be on the island. I loved my fresh fish and everyone else was thrilled with the recently caught lobster.

All the photos and video from this trip were taken on my LGG4. I am thrilled with the media quality of this phone. I highly recommend it! Let me know what you think of our adventures and the phone photos and video!
