Romantic Cayman - Exotic Island close to home
Silky smooth beaches and ocean waters devoid of rocks and seaweed attract Caribbean-bound travelers. Perfection, however usually required a trek to a quiet cove away from hotels. That's what makes Cayman's Seven Mile Beach such an attraction. Running along entire hotel strip just north of Georgetown, this swath of sand and sea is pristine, beckoning couples for long walks right out of the brochures. For a romantic sojourn in the tropics, few other locales provide such a stress-free package with modern amenities so conveniently close to the beach and airport.
Because of this, Cayman is perfect for people who want an exotic destination, but not too exotic. Cayman Islands are jut that: foreign, but in reality with all comforts of home. You will feel safe and have all fine-dining options and good roads, all amenities people are used to in North America.
For couples, the Westin Casuarina Resort more than just that. The hotel is set up simply and tastefully. An expansive British Colonial lobby in Caribbean colors opens on to a landscaped pool area and the beach itself. The Westin does get a lot of families, but mostly it's a couples destination. A 4-nights honeymoon package offers a bottle of champagne, 1-day jeep rental, sunset cruise for two, couples massage, round trip on the Rum Pointer ferry, one room service breakfast.
Another large full service resort suited for romance is the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort. Situated around a lush, flowery lagoon where turtles idle the day away in the sun, the hotel does not feel like regular Marriott's chain property. Even though the hotel has 309 rooms, it still feels intimate and has one of the truly oceanfront restaurants on the island.
Lovers staying at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cayman have really two hotels in one to explore. The main complex on the east side of Grand Cayman's main thoroughfare has the large pool, pool bar, casual dining and wide-open landscaped grounds. The Caribbean's only Nicklaus-designed golf course is no-site, as is Cayman's first full-service spa. Across the road, the new 53-suite oceanfront addition offers the fine-dining Hemingways and for sushi fans, Bamboo. There is also two garden pools, a Red Sail scuba center, and health facility.
If you are looking for something smaller, away from other people, Cayman has an amazing richness of small condo and villa properties.
For example. the Aqua Bay Club consists of 21 luxury condos right on Seven Mile beach. From their private vacation home, guests have access to a secluded beach, freshwater pool, Jacuzzi and thatched huts at the ocean's edge and in the courtyard. A 7-night honeymooners packagfe offers a romantic dinner cruise on a 65-ft catamaran, snorkeling, gourmet dining, a welcome fruit basket and bottle of champagne, rental car for a week reserved and waiting at the airport, ferry boat ride to Rum Point, glass-bottom boat ride to Stingray City for a snorkel with stingrays, admission to a turtle farm, Rum Point t-shirt, discount coupons and more.
Located across the waters of North Sound, the area known as Cayman Kai offers a more tranquil counterpoint to Seven Mile Beach. The Retreat at Rum Point has a fun and homey Caribbean feel with 24 units overlooking a private beach right next to the shops and BBQ restaurants of idyllic Rum Point. The 1,2 and 3 bedroom condos offer big screened-in patios, kitchens, washer/dryer and ocean views; plus there is a pool and racquetball court. The very best part of The Retreat, though, is you own a little piece of the Cayman Islands all to yourself. You'll feel like local. According to condo's manager, first time people come to Cayman, they go to Seven Mile Beach. The second time, they come to Rum Point. For one point, there is better diving. You are right in the marine park where nothing can be taken, and you are protected by the barrier reef. And you really feel a quite.
For ultimate luxury at the same Cayman Kai, you can have one of the private houses with a beach and a pool.
Or, inquire about condos on 7 Mile Beach.
