Moncur Design Associates renovates Caribbean-inspired St. Kitts Marriott Resort

The St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino is undergoing renovations, including all 389 guestrooms and suites (to be complete by August 2017), and a new lobby with a Marriott Great Room (slated for late 2017).

On the island of St. Kitts, “lime" is defined as "relaxing and hanging out." The word is associated with sitting under a lime tree, or having nothing more demanding to do than squeezing limes. For the design, the team took the idea of "liming" and infused the space with textures, colors and patterns that reflect the location.

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

Changes include the elimination of the standard dresser, desk and chair in the rooms, replacing them with functional spaces. Upon completion, all rooms will have a seating area with a couch and chair, and the bathrooms will get touch-ups with materials like polished nickel, dark wood, white quartz counter tops and backlit mirrors.

St. Kitts Marriott Resort & The Royal Beach Casino is located in the Frigate Bay area of the island, near the airport and capital city Basseterre. The resort has 389 guestrooms and suites, spa, eight restaurants and two lounges.
