“CAR­IB­BEAN HO­TEL OF THE YEAR”

Range De­vel­op­ments' Park Hy­att St Kitts Named

The Star (St. Lucia) - - REGIONAL - ---PR Newswire

Range De­vel­op­ments, the lead­ing de­vel­oper of lux­ury branded ho­tels in the Eastern Car­ib­bean, is de­lighted to have been named “Car­ib­bean Ho­tel of the Year” in the Car­ib­bean Travel Awards 2018. The awards, or­gan­ised by Car­ib­bean Jour­nal, re­ward ex­cel­lence in travel and tourism through­out the re­gion.

"When it debuted at the end of 2017, the Park Hy­att St Kitts, the Park Hy­att's first ever Car­ib­bean ho­tel, was some­thing new for the re­gion," said the awards panel. "The de­sign was world class, dis­rup­tive, cli­mate re­silient and, well, spec­tac­u­larly beau­ti­ful. Now a year later, the Park Hy­att has risen to the pan­theon of the re­gion's great­est ho­tels, with a mix of thought­ful de­sign, im­pres­sive ameni­ties, and a kind of cos­mopoli­tan in­ter­na­tional en­ergy, that is a wel­come ad­di­tion to the Car­ib­bean's lux­ury sec­tor. Even more? The ho­tel has been a game-changer for the is­land of St Kitts, now on the map in a new way for the world's most so­phis­ti­cated trav­ellers."

"We are de­lighted to have been hon­oured with this pres­ti­gious award," said Mo­hammed Asaria, founder of Range De­vel­op­ments. "It's a tribute to all the hard work that the peo­ple of St Kitts & Ne­vis put into the project dur­ing con­struc­tion, when we em­ployed more than 500 peo­ple, but also the con­tin­u­ing ded­i­ca­tion of more than 300 staff who keep the place run­ning to the high­est stan­dards with out­stand­ing ef­fi­ciency and a ready smile."

Range De­vel­op­ments em­ploys more than 1,000 peo­ple in the Car­ib­bean, with a sec­ond project, the Cabrits Re­sort Kempin­ski, Do­minica due to open next year. The Cabrits Re­sort Kempin­ski, Do­minica has been de­signed and built to the same high stan­dards as Park Hy­att St Kitts. The open­ing of the Cabrits Re­sort Kempin­ski, Do­minica in 2019 will firmly place Do­minica on the lux­ury tourism map.

In ad­di­tion, Range will shortly an­nounce a num­ber of new projects in the re­gion. "This is an ex­cit­ing time to be in the Car­ib­bean," said Mr Asaria. "With the right pro­fes­sional ap­proach and a will­ing lo­cal work­force, this is a place brim­ming with po­ten­tial."

As well as Range's fo­cus on de­liv­er­ing for the cus­tomer, Range also runs a pro­lific Cor­po­rate So­cial Re­spon­si­bil­ity (CSR) pro­gramme. By work­ing with lo­cal com­mu­ni­ties at a grass­roots level to tackle var­i­ous so­cial is­sues, it aims to be­come an in­te­gral part of so­ci­ety. Its CSR port­fo­lio fo­cuses on four core ar­eas: chil­dren, fam­i­lies, en­trepreneurs and com­mu­nity.

In April this year, Prime Min­is­ter of St Kitts & Ne­vis, Dr. Ti­mothy Har­ris, pre­sented an award of ap­pre­ci­a­tion to Range De­vel­op­ments for its con­tin­ued con­tri­bu­tions to the coun­try's Cit­i­zen­ship by In­vest­ment Pro­gramme.
