The Caribbean Club is a luxury boutique hotel located on Grand Cayman’s famous Seven Mile Beach. The 37 spacious suites and villas are individually owned and exquisitely decorated, and all have full kitchens, balconies with ocean views, and marble bathrooms with separate whirlpool tubs and rainfall showers. The Club has one of the nicest stretches of beach along the Seven Mile coast with white sand, turquoise water, and calm waves. The beach and pool areas are not crowded, allowing for a quiet and serene tropical getaway. The restaurant here is one of the best on the island, but note that there is no spa.
The one- to three-bedroom condos at this intimate, 30-unit property are individually decorated, and most have attractive, modern beach style. All have kitchens and big balconies with either garden or beautiful ocean views. Right on Grand Cayman’s famous Seven Mile Beach, Plantana has one of the best beachfronts in the area, as well as a large pool overlooking the ocean. Lush, tropical landscaping surrounds the buildings.
The Discovery Point Club is made up of one- and two-bedroom condos with fully equipped kitchens, spacious living rooms, and gorgeous ocean views. As with most condos in the area, the units are individually owned and decorated; the furnishings here are typically modern and welcoming. Located along Seven Mile Beach, the Club has a large but slightly rocky beach and a beautiful pool and hot tub area. This relaxing property is well-suited to both couples and families coming to Grand Cayman for a longer stay.
The 18-room Cobalt Coast Resort and Suites is one of the best resorts in Grand Cayman for divers. Offering multiple dive packages, an on-site dive shop, and dive trips leaving right off of the oceanfront dock, Cobalt Coast caters to divers of all ages and abilities. The resort offers customizable room, dining, and diving packages, including an all-inclusive option. With a slightly remote location in West Bay, the resort has a quiet and serene ambience, and is removed from Grand Cayman’s touristy stretch of hotels and restaurants. The resort features a beautiful restaurant and pool area overlooking the ocean, and Duppies Restaurant and Bar serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
