Legendary as being one of the world’s premier places to indulge in the simple luxuries of life, Cosmopolitan Grand Cayman offers gracious accommodations, spectacular dining, decadent duty-free shopping and a seemingly endless array of alluring diversions and activities. Complemented by sun-kissed white sand beaches, crystal clear waters and pristine coral reefs, this is where the good life becomes sublime.
Ease into Your Morning
Wake up without an alarm clock and have a glorious stretch as you gaze out across an empty stretch of Seven Mile Beach and prepare for a morning jog or a quiet walk along the sparkling turquoise water that laps powder-soft sand. This is heaven on earth.
Start your day
Start your day with a well-earned breakfast – order room service for your ocean-front terrace or venture out and enjoy breakfast at Ferdinand’s while you are treated to spectacular views of Seven Mile Beach. Located in The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort & Spa, Ferdinand’s is also well known for its world famous brunch, which is an extravagant feast held from 11.30am to 2.30pm every Sunday.
Charter your own boat
Escape from the usual and give yourself an unforgettable memory on Cayman Luxury Charters.
Book a private charter boat to explore the waters around Cayman. While touring, if you’ve only fantasized about peeking beneath the sea, there is no safer, gentler and more exciting place to snorkel than in Cayman’s calm, clear, current-free waters. And if you happen to be visiting during conch season (between November and April), your captain may prepare some delicious conch ceviche on board.
Play a Round
The warmth of our sun and the cool breeze from the Trade Winds make the Cayman Islands the perfect Caribbean vacation destination for you to catch up on your golf. Take in a game at any of the three challenging golf courses: the Jack Nicklaus-designed Britannia Golf Course features a 9-hole championship course or a 18-hole short course: The North Sound Club which is open to the public and is the only 18-hole Championship course in the Cayman Islands; Blue Tip at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman is said to be a 9-hole Caribbean Monster featuring 8 holes on the water. Designed by Greg Norman this course is open to guests and residents of The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman.
To completely decompress, head to The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, to experience The Silver Rain Spa and its “healing waters” for which Switzerland is renowned, through unique hydrotherapies. The brand’s de-aging treatments, combined with the relaxed nature of the islands, provide a wide and unique range of regimens which will astound without a doubt. As you enter through a silver-leafed door, you're encouraged to truly unwind and leave the world behind for a perfect body- and-soul-cleansing experience. You can choose from the signature Silver Rain Facial to the 60-minute, full-body Caviar Massage or for the ultra-busy man, the “Gentleman’s Retreat”– a simultaneous facial, manicure and pedicure. After your treatment, relax in their steam room, sauna or whirlpools or follow it up with a yoga class to ease both your body and mind.
Shop Until You Drop
If you have time before dinner, head over to George Town and wander into one of the many high-end boutiques and shop for whimsical local fashion, duty-free items - which means many exciting opportunities to save on such things as watches, china and crystal, perfumes and fine jewelry as well as luxury brands.
Then explore the town of Camana Bay. Here you’ll find an eclectic mix of local shops and specialty boutiques that feature top international brands. For mementos, necessities or just for fun, find island style at the shops of Camana Bay.
Seaside Fine Dining Along Seven Mile Beach
For unforgettable seaside dinning head to Luca, located in the Caribbean Club. Along with the freshest seafood and international cuisine, their superbly designed cellar holds more than 3,000 bottles of varieties from around the globe - and their wine list has been awarded Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence each year since they opened.
End your Evening with a Stroll along Seven Mile Beach
Stroll hand in hand along our pristine Seven Mile Beach and watch a kaleidoscope of colour spread across the evening sky as the sun sets on another day in Grand Cayman. Wander back to your terrace and share a night cap glass of Seven Fathoms. The award-winning local rum is uniquely aged under water – a genius idea inspired by the rocking motion of the barrels on the ships of explorers and pirates. Sip slowly as you soak up the enchanting Caribbean night sky and be dazzled by the twinkling reflection of the stars in your love’s eyes.
