Cayman’s Best Kept (Accommodation) Secret

Walking through the newly renovated lobby of The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort and Spa, you can’t help but be immediately impressed, reports PressToday’s Ashley Rochefort who’s checking out the Cayman Islands this week.

Fine, modern finishes, thoughtful details, and nautical, but not cliche, decor make visitors feel comfortable and calm.

The pool deck (another central aspect of the very recent $50 million phase one renovation) and beachfront have ample seating and lounging options.

Hotel amenities include a variety of water sports, daily kid’s club activities, spa and fitness facilities, not to mention the excellent dining options that Cayman is known for.

But it’s the Westin’s sister hotel, Sunshine Suites Grand Cayman, that truly has something unique to offer visitors to the Cayman Islands.

The 131-room property is a very short shuttle-on-demand ride away from The Westin, and offers travellers the chance to experience Cayman luxury at an affordable price.

Yes, affordable.

At peak season, travellers can book a small suite for as little as $169 a night.

Rooms are clean, but modest, and come with a full kitchen, access to the property’s own pool, complimentary continental breakfast and WiFi, and most importantly, unlimited access to all of the aforementioned amenities at the Westin property.

Spend the day laying on a luxury beach lounger, have fun paddle boarding, and even dine at Ferdinand’s, offering beachfront Caribbean cuisine, which can be charged directly to your room at Sunshine Suites.

This type of property is popular with divers, families, and budget-minded travellers.

Still not sold?

According to locals, the Sunshine Grill, the on-property restaurant at Sunshine Suites, is one of the island’s best. It’s lively, fun, and a popular place for locals to grab a bite. Order the fish tacos, you won’t regret it.

Sunshine Suites Grand Cayman and The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort are serviced by WestJet Vacations and Air Canada Vacations.
