WHY I CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN TO GRAND CAYMAN...KIMPTON SEAFIRE RESORT & SPA
I love Grand Cayman!! It is the first Caribbean Island I visited many years ago. It is known for its fabulous restaurants as much as for its gorgeous beach. The snorkeling and scuba diving can't be beat. It is perfect for couples only and for families. There is so much to do from taking a submarine ride, to visiting the turtle farm to visiting stingray city and Cayman Kai, not to mention all the wonderful meals to enjoy.
Grand Cayman mostly consists of condominiums from ultra luxurious to very basic. Most of my clients, however, want the full service offered by resorts. Their options are currently quite limited. The Ritz Carlton has a wonderful, massive resort right in the center of 7 mile beach where all the action takes place. It is a highly rated Ritz, and you get what you pay for....which is a lot. On the Northern end of the beach, which is more quiet with a better, quieter beach, you find the Westin. It is actually a small Westin. Some clients love it due to its lovely pool, great service and the location of the beach. However, the rooms are small and the feel of the resort is not 5 star. Again, you get what you pay for, and this resort is much more affordable than the Ritz.
Other than these two resorts, there are no resorts I am comfortable sending my clients who value luxury. That is about to change. Kimpton is set to open a new resort on the Northern end of the beach (my favorite location) in November, 2016!! It will be a perfect offering for the couple or family who loves 5 star service at a price a bit more affordable than the Ritz. Kimpton is a great brand known for its service and style. This will be a new build with two pools, three restaurants, a 12,000 square foot spa, a communal fire pit and a boardwalk. It will also have the most expansive beach of all properties on 7 Mile Beach.
It will be priced between the Westin and the Ritz and will be a fantastic addition to Grand Cayman. I can't wait to visit!!
