It’s been said that the world’s greatest luxury isn’t money, influence or even power—it’s time. There’s even a name for feeling like you have more than enough time: “time affluence.” This concept is something the new Yu Lounge provides in spades from the moment you land in St. Kitts for a stay at Belle Mont Farm on Kittitian Hill.
When I touched down in St. Kitts a sun shower was threatening. Should I run to the terminal for fear of getting drenched? No need. The Yu Lounge already had a pristine Mercedes-Benz and driver waiting for me on the tarmac—umbrella at the ready. And that’s not only for inclement weather, all Yu Lounge guests receive this welcome.
What comes next? Rushing through customs, hustling to get your luggage?
Passing through the Yu Lounge things are different.
After a brief drive from the tarmac to the lounge, I was greeted with a rum cocktail and a full lunch. The lounge itself encourages those arriving to linger with soothing lighting, speedy WiFi, and comfortable seats—all in a spacious, relaxing environment.
While I sat back and enjoyed my time affluence, my arrival was processed through the lounge’s in-house immigration office, my luggage materialized as if by magic, and the rum tasted delicious.
Did I mention there’s an outdoor deck complete with lounge chairs in the departures wing for a last taste of the Kittitian sun?
At the Yu Lounge you can definitely expect a taste of time affluence… among many other types.
