What feels a world away, is truly only a puddle jump from Florida, into a paradise of its own kind. The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman elevates the idea of a “destination resort” to a level of sophistication and luxury that can only be found on the iconic Seven Mile Beach.
It’s possibly the best address in Grand Cayman, and upon entering through the grand doors at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, you can see why. The bright colors with natural tones in the lobby is a smooth segue to the steps that cascade down to the soft sands of the beach. With an iconic Ritz-Carlton welcome, each guest is warmly introduced to their home away from home. Two towers, two pools, six restaurants, and plenty of onsite experiences, make this hotel a bucket list stay.
Perfectly manicured grounds provide a lush escape on Grand Cayman. The Ritz-Carlton features a unique opportunity to either lounge on the sandy beach or spring into an adventure-filled week. Whether it’s a day of relaxation or perhaps an experience of a lifetime swimming with the stingrays, you can truly tailor your trip to how you like it. The hotel provides complimentary kayaks, water hammocks, snorkel gear and more for those wanting to venture out into the water right at the hotel (full list of hotel activities). A highlight is a day at the La Prairie Spa, where a wide range of treatments from massages to facials are available in an incredibly serene space. It’s the best way to begin and end your stay on the island. (*From June to October, the 9-hole golf course designed by Greg Normand is available for play.)
A high focus on culinary experiences and the host to the annual Cayman Cookout (Read about my experience at the Cayman Cookout here), means you are in good hands when it comes to dining. Mornings start at SEVEN where you can dine on the patio, enjoying fresh juices and a plethora of breakfast choices. From there, highlights are the tacos and quite possibly the best Pina Coladas at Bar Jack, Italian classics at Andiamo, and incredible sushi at Taikun. One meal not to miss is a seafood dinner at Blue by Eric Ripert, where you can experience a signature tasting menu or a la carte dining paired with an extensive list of wines. To end the day, be sure to catch all the action at Silver Palm with a classic cocktail.
Between the dining and adventure, the suites and rooms at the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman are sure to satisfy. The Ocean Front room is a beautiful choice, with views over Seven Mile Beach and the pool. Decorated with cool blue tones and warm furnishings, the room opens up to a terrace with a table and chairs — the best place to start any day. With a plush king bed (one you will not want to leave), a spacious closet, and an elegant bathroom, you’re set to go for a luxurious room.
If you’re looking for a luxurious escape, where the waters are warm and the sun is shining, then the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman is the place for you.
