The Cayman Islands has already positioned itself as one of the world’s most highly sought-after locations in which to reside and to visit. The opening of the Mandarin Oriental Resort and Residences on Grand Cayman, the first time the brand has dipped its toes in the Caribbean, will further solidify the Islands’ enviable reputation as a beacon for those who seek luxury living at its best.
Welcoming a new luxury brand
Embracing this new luxury brand means Cayman will join an exclusive club of destinations which are home to Mandarin Oriental Hotels, with just 36 resorts throughout the world and just eight that offer residences.
A symbol of luxury and elegance globally, the Mandarin Oriental brand first took shape in Asia in the 1960s and has quickly grown into a stellar group of first-class resorts and properties. Synonymous with luxury living at its finest, Mandarin Oriental resorts frequently feature Michelin-starred restaurants and Forbes five-star rated spas among their many elite amenities and services.
The fact that the Mandarin Oriental chose Cayman as the location for its first step into the Caribbean region means these Islands will greatly benefit from a new set of discerning visitors who have always been loyal to the Mandarin Oriental brand and who have also always wanted to experience the unique ambiance of the Caribbean. This new set of clientele will be drawn here by the lure of being able to enjoy their favourite brand in a fantastic new location, which will then give them the opportunity to explore our beautiful Islands for themselves, which will be of great benefit to the Islands as a whole.
Location, location, location!
An extraordinary benefit for anyone contemplating purchasing a residence at the Mandarin Oriental Grand Cayman will be the incredible location chosen for this new development, at St James Point on the southern shore of Grand Cayman. Most luxury developments of this magnitude are positioned on Seven Mile Beach, undoubtedly a magnificent location; however this location offers buyers and vacationers not only stunning ocean views due to its elevated positioning, but also privacy and space, benefits not normally available at the busier Seven Mile Beach location. It will also be nestled in a setting that truly reflects its tropical location, with lush vegetation and hiking trails surrounding this gorgeous property. Anyone looking to connect with nature will instantly fall in love with the location of this stunning property.
Comprising 91 hotel rooms, multiple top-ranked dining and spa venues, a plethora of stunning pools, a gorgeous white sandy beach with a safe swimming area, and some truly stunning luxury Residences, the Mandarin Oriental Grand Cayman is a unique and well-thought out property that will offer luxury living at its finest.
Bringing the outdoors in
For anyone seeking a property of their own, there is a limited collection of two, three, and four-bedroom+ Residences which all benefit from the largest private outdoor verandas and terraces on Grand Cayman and all principal rooms will showcase views of the beach and ocean. This means each Residence will definitely make the most of the magnificent location and will effectively bring the outdoors in for owners. Looking at these gorgeous Residences in detail, one can look forward to opulent living that really knows no bounds, including elevated ceiling heights, hand-laid Grey Oak, imported porcelain flooring and open-plan kitchens encased in custom millwork and natural stone.
Space to breathe
All Residences are located on the top four and five floors of the hotel towers, and truly embrace the views with walls of glass and spacious floor plans combining to create spacious, light, airy living all set against the stunning backdrop of the ocean beyond. For those looking to take a step further into this incredible luxury living, the Mandarin Oriental Grand Cayman offers a lucky few the chance to purchase a Residence within their Penthouse Collection, each of which will comprise four-bedrooms, expansive private terraces with a plunge pool and outdoor kitchen.
Becoming a Mandarin Oriental owner comes with added benefits that should be noted, in particular, owners will have preferred access to all the resort amenities and services, as well as VIP status at Mandarin Oriental hotels around the world.
