While most major chain hotels provide the standard amenities, it is useful to be aware of what is on offer at the hotel you are staying at whether it is at an extra cost or included in the resort fee. For the main hotel accommodations along Seven Mile Beach here in Grand Cayman, a resort fee will be an extra cost that you will face when you check in, and for the main hotels on island this will include a whole host of activities and amenities to keep you entertained during your stay. There are also many extras that you can add on to your cost if your budget allows. While most of the accommodation along Seven Mile offer the same or similar facilities of fitness center, spa, retail stores and free Wi-Fi, The Marriott, The Ritz Carlton, The Westin and The Kimpton Seafire Resort and Spa all offer unique experiences and activities.
The Marriott’s extensive events calendar is what really makes this resort stand out from the crowd. With a roster of weekly and monthly events, mostly based around the delicious food and drink served here, each with a theme and live entertainment, your stay at the Marriott will be jam-packed with fun and interesting activities.
The Ritz Carlton boasts an incredible spa courtesy of exclusive skincare brand la prairie where you can relax and unwind with a luxurious four hands massage. If you prefer more adventurous activities, take a kayak tour of the mangroves with the Ambassadors of the Environment team. The Ritz Carlton is also the only hotel along Seven Mile Beach to offer tennis courts and golf to its guests.
The newly renovated Westin Resort is host to one of the most pristine sections of beach and a swim up pool bar for those who crave the sun, sea and sand when they are on vacation. There is also a whole host of events happening from beach yoga to hair braiding to ping pong tournaments to keep you busy.
The Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa is Grand Cayman’s newest addition on the hotel front. After opening its doors in November 2016, it still feels brand spanking new. As a guest here, you can enjoy a daily coffee service in the lobby before you make your way down to the beach and just before dinner take advantage of the complimentary wine reception while you watch the sunset.
All the hotel accommodations along the Seven Mile Beach stretch have watersports operations on behalf of Red Sail Sports, where you can hire equipment and book a variety of catamaran trips and excursions to experience what this beautiful island has to offer.
