ST. KITTS MARRIOTT RESORT

The recent opening of the 471-room St. Kitts Marriott Resort and Royal Beach Casino will not only put St. Kitts on the incentive map, but it is also expected to have an enormous impact on the island nation's economy. The resort will increase the total number of rooms on the island by 50 percent. A full-service spa will open this summer. There's also an 18-hole, Tom McBroom — designed championship golf course. Meeting space includes a 7,100-square-foot ballroom and five additional meeting rooms, for a total of 12,000 square feet.
