Breakfast in bed, maid service every day, chocolate on the pillow…aren’t these some of the things we all dream of in our everyday lives? Being pampered? Spoiled? Treated like royalty?

When you feel that you would like a taste of such a life, it is time to check yourself into one of the luxury condos, private homes or resorts in the Cayman Islands.

Even if you live here, you’ll be seeing it from a whole new perspective when you stay for a weekend or longer. Don’t live on the beach? Now it’s on your doorstep.

Imagine waking up each day with the only decisions weighing on your mind being whether you would like to have breakfast in your room or in a restaurant, followed by a dip in the pool or maybe curling up with a good book in your own private beach cabana.

There is a competitive accommodation market here, and that means the consumer gets the best service, facilities and amenities available.

In this section, we give advice on what options suit your needs, why you might want to look beyond the Seven Mile Beach area, and what your concierge really can do for you.

Resorts like The Ritz-Carlton, Marriott, Westin and Kimpton all boast in-house dining venues, shops and spas with a variety of room choices to suit your taste and budget. If you want to visit the quieter side of things, consider Morritt’s Tortuga Club or Wyndham Reef Resort in East End with restaurants like Kaibo and Tukka a stone’s throw away.

All resorts have easy access to watersports of all kinds, both motorized and non-motorized so you can become reacquainted with the reason why everyone else is envious of you being in the Cayman Islands.

Those who are well-travelled will tell you why Cayman is a top tourist destination. Because every time they visit here, they feel like a special guest.
