The Caribbean Club Condominium Hotel on Grand Cayman Island is one of my favorite places in the world to stay.
It’s not just this exclusive hotel’s superb accommodations and spectacular setting on the world famous Seven Mile Beach that makes it special, it’s the feeling of relaxed elegance that surrounds the property that makes it a truly relaxing Caribbean getaway. Whether you visit Grand Cayman for the sun, sand, diving or sailing, the Caribbean Club is the perfect base of operations for your Caribbean vacation.
The well-deserved superlatives don’t stop when describing the Caribbean Club, which is known as the most exclusive boutique hotel on Grand Cayman. Add to that the fact that the hotel’s 37 large suites are situated steps from the Caribbean’s best beach, throw in a serene infinity pool and patio area adjacent to the soft sands and swaying palms of Seven Mile Beach and you have a recipe for epic relaxation.
As a condominium resort, the Caribbean Club also offers something special that really makes the guest feel at home: spacious one, two and three-bedroom suites with bright and spacious living areas and generously sized balconies that overlook the pool, the beach and the ocean below. Indoor and outdoor living are comfortable as well as elegant at this property. Few vacation condos offer kitchens of the size and sophistication of those found in the Caribbean Club’s suites. With full-size, stainless steel appliances and plenty of granite countertop space for food preparation, you can enjoy preparing your own meals for dining at your outdoor dining table on your balcony.
Whether you enjoy cooking while on vacation or not, a visit to Luca, the Caribbean Club’s restaurant is not to be missed. I enjoyed their beautiful champagne brunch and a chat with Chef Federico who let me in on a secret ingredient in his apple strudel, Caribbean rum.
Rum is, of course, one of the traditional beverages of the Caribbean and one place to find a rum like no other on Grand Cayman Island is at Cayman Spirits Company, where they produce Seven Fathoms Premium rum in the traditional way, with a twist. The spirits are made from local sugar cane, distilled in a copper pot still and aged in bourbon barrels in the traditional Caribbean manner. However, the barrels are aged seven fathoms under the sea off the coast from the distillery rather than on land, a process which gives the rum its name and its unique story. I enjoyed touring the distillery and sampling the rum during my stay at the Caribbean Club, a perfect activity to round out the swimming, diving, dining and relaxing of a vacation in paradise.
