Wellness travelers, please listen closely, I’ve got to get this off my chest: The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman is home to one of the very best spas I have ever visited in my entire life. I’ll be sharing more details in a bit – but this spa deserved the header.
The Cayman Islands are one of the most commonly known Caribbean destinations and for good reason – the sites are angelic, the people are incredibly friendly, the food is divine, and the wellness options are endless.
Whether traveling to Cayman Islands solo, with your friends, your partner, or your entire family, there’s something for everyone. The Ritz-Carlton Cayman Islands has secured its spot at the top of luxury travel in this tropical paradise because of their inclusive array of offerings.
The Ritz-Carlton Golf Club
I’m starting to think that Chris only takes vacations that include ample golfing opportunities – and you know what – I’m okay with that if it takes us to places like this! The golf course here is 9 holes of fun with seaside views and nearly neon greens. It’s not uncommon to see iguanas scamper across the course – adding to the challenge and excitement of it all! I love the relaxed and casual atmosphere of this particular course and it’s always a pleasure to spend time together on the links.
More Outdoor Fun for Everyone
Every single member of our family loves the Ritz-Carlton Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ambassadors of the Environment programming. Exploring the region through the eyes of an environmentalist is such a priceless opportunity to share with my children. We try to visit at least one of these special classes during each visit!
Grand Cayman, home of The Ritz-Carlton, has seven miles of beach to explore by kayaking, paddleboarding, snorkeling, sailing, or just sunbathing near the oceanside.
Off the water you can amp up your tennis game and visit the gorgeous fitness center to stay active (located in the spa) this phenomenal gym has a top of the line equipment. Cardio waits for no one! Personal training and group classes like core, yoga, body conditioning, and stretching are found here, too.
Excursions are plentiful while visiting the Cayman Islands! Swimming with stingrays, cavorting with sea turtles for the afternoon, and diving into crystal-blue waters together as a family shapes our Caymanian vacations. Concierge are quick to connect you with boat rides to places you’ll dream of forever – and these special moments help to bond us together on our family trips.
La Prairie Spa
La Prairie Spa’s assortment of signature treatments are as breathtaking as the 20,000 square foot spa is itself. This spa uses Swiss techniques and products to execute wellness-enhancing services like full body massage, facials, pedicures, and manicures.
Travel Recovery is a special La Prairie Spa find that includes relaxing Swedish Massage and a facial – both designed to get you into a deep state of peace and into what I call “vacation mode.”
White Caviar Illuminating Facial uses the benefits of Golden Caviar extracts and properties to even your skin tone and reveal bright and vibrant skin.
The Full Body Treatments take the spotlight by offering some of the most specially designed rituals for wellness I’ve seen yet. I encourage you to take a close look at the Balancing Caviar Body Treatment, From The Sea, the Diamond Perfection , and the Dream Body Treatment. Invigorating, stimulating, exfoliating, and intensely relaxing. Your spa coordinator can help guide you to what’s best for your skin type and goals.
Dining in Grand Cayman
As you may imagine, there’s no shortage of fresh fish and bright island flavor in Grand Cayman. The Ritz-Carlton restaurant lineup boasts Blue by Eric Ripert, Andiamo, Seven, Taikun, Bar Jack, and Silver Palm. A total family favorite, Andiamo is home to an outdoor theater that perfectly aligns with the fun vibe and flavorful menu. Taikun shares some of the most scrumptious sushi I’ve ever had, and Blue has more select wines than I could sip in a lifetime.
