Considering St. Kitts

Jump to last reply

My DH has decided that he would like for us to get away for Thanksgiving this year for 5 nights. First time he's never spent a major holiday with his family, and there's no telling how they'll react, but heck--it's about time he went his own way! However, he waited so long in making this decision that the only afforable venues are those featured in (mostly ghastly) travel packages.

BUT we found a place on St. Kitts that would make each of us happy enough, even though it's the not the sort of place we would normally choose for a vacation. Considering our budget, however, this Sugar Bay Club (AI, aaaack!) is starting to look appealing. :D

If it didn't sound so cannibalistic, I'd say that to hear me confess to booking an AI place on this board is tantamount to eating crow!

Anyway, St. Kitts intrigues me and there seem to be enough places within walking distance from the resort, and enough money in the budget left over to rent a car for 2 days to see more ofo the island.

Here's where I'd like some advice:

Both DH's and my birthday fall around the time of our trip and we'd like to do something really special for dinner one night. Would you recommend Rawlins, Ottley's, or Golden Lemon for that dinner? Or would you do one of their famed Sunday brunches instead?

Does any one place stand out in terms of their desserts?

Is there any one place in particular to stop for a real taste of local food? I assume one could find goat, conch, and other Caribbean staples there, but is there a local dish I should know about?

We'll definitely do an island tour on our own and of course will stop off at Brimstone Hill for the views and for the history. Where else should we consider stopping for good views, good food, good rum punch, etc?

I'd love to hear more information and suggestions you might have. Thanks!
