Hotels in Grand Cayman
Economical accommodations are scarce in Grand Cayman – the island, a veritable playground for the rich and fabulous, specializes in posh five-star hotels and resorts, as well as quaint (but pricey) beachside cottages. These luxurious Grand Cayman hotels are well worth the sticker price, however, as they offer some of the best views of the island’s pristine and picturesque beaches, as well as a wide range of amenities. And when we say luxurious, we mean luxurious. Take the Retreat at Rum Point, for instance, a Grand Cayman hotel where each room features a screened-in porch for spending quiet nights overlooking the beach, as well as amenities like a tennis court, a gym, a sauna, a racquetball court and laundry facilities.
Such sumptuous beachside properties are the norm among hotels in Grand Cayman. One tourist favorite is the Cobalt Coast Dive Resort in West Bay, a waterfront resort that boasts spa facilities, quick access to Hell Beach and Boatswain’s Beach, as well as the Cayman Motor Museum and Cemetery Beach. On Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman Beach Suites is even more luxurious, with an 18-hole golf course, a 24-hour fitness center, a European spa, two outdoor pools and sundecks, and suites featuring private balconies.
Right on Seven Mile Beach, with diving, snorkeling, catamaran sailing, and a nine-hole Jack Nicklaus golf course for landlubbers.
Forty years ago, the island of Grand Cayman was transformed into a world-class financial center—the Switzerland of the Caribbean.
