The five-star Caribbean resort and superyacht marina, Christophe Harbour, and luxury private terminal, YU Lounge, St. Kitts have proudly unveiled the ‘New Caribbean Gateway’ during the recently concluded Monaco Yacht Show 2015. This is a suite of top-class services offered to yacht owners and superyacht charter guests to ensure an exceptional transition between jet and yacht upon arrival in the fantastic St. Kitts yacht holiday location.
This formal partnership represents a strategic response to the ever-increasing yacht and private jet traffic in St. Kitts. It is expected to further drive global demand from the world’s most discerning jetsetters searching for new experiences as well as new destinations within the regions.
“We are thrilled to note the opening of Christophe Harbour, a truly visionary project that will change the landscape of hospitality and luxury in the Caribbean. Together with our unique YU Lounge St Kitts private terminal, we are providing a seamless set of services that will be unrivalled in the region, from the runway to the marina,” commented Nirvan Veerasamy and Uday Nayak, co-founders of the Veling Group, owners of YU Lounge.
The discerning yacht owners and luxury yacht charter guests are expected to enjoy top-class hospitality at the start or end of a Caribbean voyage, beginning the moment they step onto the tarmac. They will experience expedited customs processing and security, a selection of delicious food and beverage, baggage handling, as well as airport transfers via YU Lounge’s fleet of Porsche Cayenne vehicles. All of which enables yacht owners and charter guests easy access to their vessel within 30 minutes of touchdown.
“Since the opening of Christophe Harbour’s marina earlier this year, we’ve enjoyed significant momentum and buzz from across the sector. The amount of yachting activity we’ve seen is unprecedented for St. Kitts and will only increase as progress continues at new services and amenities are introduced,” commented Buddy Darby, Christophe Harbour founder and CEO. “With expanding marina services and seamless experience offered through our partnership with YU Lounge, we are confident St. Kitts is perfectly poised to become the new gateway to the Caribbean.”
