Rumors that Marriott International would be removing its brand from the St. Kitts Marriott Resort are reportedly false.  The media started flaring rumors of Marriott International eliminating Marriott time share availability to owners and renters at the St. Kitts Resort, officially known as the Marriott St. Kitts Resort & Royal Beach Casino, because of U.S.-based shareholders and time share customers heard rumors of the company’s plans to split Marriott International into two separate entities by the end of 2011.

There was wild public speculation that the purpose of Marriott International Chairman and CEO, John Willard Marriott Jr.’s visit to St. Kitts in mid-February was to discuss pulling the Marriott brand with Marriott Resort general manager Vic Dizen. Some have said that Dizen was planning to enter into a rental agreement involving the resort property if Marriott pulled the brand.

Regarding the split of Marriott International and what Marriott time share owners and renters can expect are more of a focus on lodging and the other on time share amenities through Marriott Vacation Clubs, thus enhancing the overall Marriott experience for time share owners and renters. 

As a result of St. Kitts tourism product and services, Marriott Vacation Club will expand availability along with the brand; a potential point of interest may be the Christophe Harbour, located on the South East Peninsula. 

Marriott St. Kitts Resort & Royal Beach Casino opened its doors in Frigate Bay, St. Kitts in 2002. In January 2009, the 22-villa Marriott St. Kitts Beach Club, a branch of the Marriott Vacation Club International was launched.
