The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman

Overview

At The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, you might have a hard time deciding where to start: along the resort's coral sands or inside your comfy lodgings. Outfitted with private balconies, soaking tubs, Asprey toiletries and minifridges, guest rooms are a point of praise for recent visitors. You can reserve a tee time at the nine-hole, Greg Norman-designed golf course, schedule a treatment at the spa or make use the hotel's complimentary kayaks, rafts and snorkel gear. Or, park yourself on the sand. The resort offers a prime location, extending 144 acres across the Caribbean to the North Sound, facing Seven Mile Beach's shoreline. When you're ready to refuel, head to Blue by Eric Ripert, or try one of the hotel's other restaurants or bars. The Ritz-Carlton falls under the Marriott banner, meaning Marriott Rewards members can collect or redeem points here.

AAA/CAA Five Diamond Awards 2016

Condé Nast Traveler

The British colonial architecture extends to rooms with 'elegant and refined' coral, teal, and gold decor and private balconies with 'spectacular views of blue water and palm trees.'

Fodor's

This 144-acre resort, as exquisitely manicured as its clientele, offers unparalleled luxury and service infused with a sense of place, with works by local artists and craftspeople.
Fodor's Choice

Frommer's

Check in and step under high ceilings where dramatic wall-sized images of exotic flowers and huge vases filled with dozens of fresh flowers create a sense of opulence, and the hustle and bustle of George Town seems far away.
Frommer's Exceptional

Forbes

Though it's far from the only attraction, the beach is the centerpiece of The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman. After stashing your flip-flops on the provided racks, put your toes to the sand and hit the waves with a sail boat, raft, stand-up paddleboard or snorkeling gear.
