The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman Does it Again

written by | Posted on October 1st, 2010

After checking in, guests are invited to the Sanctuary to relax in the steam room, sauna or jacuzzi. After which they are escorted to Haven, Silver Rain’s relaxation room. Here, refreshments are offered and, as clients kick back, an attendant presents a music menu to personalize the treatment experience even more.

We decided on the Platinum Rare Facial, which La Prairie had just unveiled to coincide with the launch of the Platinum Rare skincare collection. With a fully trained La Prairie esthetician working her magic with the new products, another attendant provided a foot and calf exfoliation utilizing the built-in therapy tub hidden within the treatment bed. After the exfoliation, a massage is administered throughout the remainder of the 90-minute facial.

We strongly recommend the Skin Caviar Massage, which is superb and includes products from the line’s Skin Caviar collection. Regardless of the kind of pressure a client may request for the massage, it’s really the hydrating caviar moisturizer that soothes and rejuvenates, bringing a fresh and renewed sense of moisture and relaxation to sun-dried skin after a day on the beach.

Speaking of the beach, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman sprawls across the famous Seven Mile Beach, offering beach amenities ranging from private cabanas to full-service attendance from Bar Jack. And just in case guests feel too hot to eat at the beach, there are covered dining floats where waiters actually come and serve you in the ocean. You might want to warn clients though, that the pool area behind the beach gets crowded early. But not to worry, at the back of the resort is still another pool that offers a more intimate ambiance. Here, guests can dine at Periwinkle, an open-air restaurant with views of the marina, where Mediterranean-inspired fare is served in a casual setting.

While they’re there, they should book one of the resort’s 35-ft. Intrepid yachts for an excursion through the northern sound and Stingray City. Experienced crews ensure a safe and thoroughly enjoyable and adventurous excursion for clients in a fun-filled environment they’ll love. Or, there’s plenty of aquatic fun back on the beach, where clients can head out on a beach kayak safari or take it easy on floating arm chair electric paddle boats. They can learn sailing basics from a pro, try their hand at sailing on one of the 13-ft. Hobie Waves, or head out on a private sailing or snorkeling cruise. Regardless of what your clients choose, the resort’s watersports professionals are there to offer complimentary lessons to ensure they are comfortable in the water and ready to go exploring on their own. The resort also provides guests with complimentary use of snorkel gear, water trikes, kayaks, floating rafts and water hammocks.

No matter what your clients may demand for a fun-filled and relaxing beach resort and spa vacation—even hard-to-please vacationers—they’ll find it at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman and Silver Rain, a La Prairie Spa.

Valid through Dec. 16, the Reconnect package includes overnight accommodations, daily breakfast for two, a $100 “Wonder” credit per night that can be used for an array of onsite amenities, including Silver Rain, a La Prairie Spa.
