How St. Kitts inspired the new look of a Marriott resort

St. Kitts Marriott Resort renovated all 389 of its guestrooms and the main lobby to reflect the natural landscape of the island. 

Moncur Design Associates was involved in the renovation.

On the island of St. Kitts, “lime" is defined as “relaxing and hanging out.” For the design, the team took the idea of “liming” and infused the space with a relaxed simplicity, encouraging guests to embrace the ways of the island. Textures, colors and patterns reflect the concept and the landscape itself.

In the guestrooms, the design team eliminated the standard dresser, desk and chair, replacing them with spaces ideal for lounging, doing some work or just taking in the view. All rooms have a seating area with a couch and chair. The bathrooms also received touch-ups, and now use materials like polished nickel, dark wood, white quartz counter tops and backlit mirrors.

The new color palette is made up of woods, blues, off-whites and splashes of yellow.
