Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman makes ‘World’s Best’ list


As published by the Cayman Compass

The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, on Seven Mile Beach has been voted one of the best hotels in the region.

The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman has been named one of the best hotels in the Caribbean by Travel and Leisure magazine on its 2015 “World’s Best” list.

The resort on Seven Mile Beach came in at number 10 on the list of 25 best hotels in the Caribbean region.

The magazine called the 144-acre resort, which includes a 365-room beachfront hotel, a “high-end playground” with a “who’s who of branded amenities,” such as “Jean-Michel Cousteau nature tours, a Greg Norman–designed golf course, Nick Bollettieri tennis pros, a La Prairie spa, and five restaurants, including one run by acclaimed chef Eric Ripert.”

The list is determined by surveys completed by the magazine’s readers. Responses from travel-industry professionals are excluded from the final tally, and a destination must receive a minimum number of mentions to be eligible for inclusion on the list.

Hotels that make the list have been rated on their rooms and facilities, location, service, food and value. The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, received a score of 88.27. The number one slot in the list was shared between the Jade Mountain resort in Soufrière, St. Lucia, and Sandals Whitehouse European Village & Spa in Whitehouse, Jamaica – each of which received a score of 92.
