Important Bits

  • Type

    Beach Resort

  • Vibe

    A lush hotel that has everything you need and more

  • Location

    On Seven Mile beach in Grand Cayman

  • Rooms

    52 all-suite rooms that are ocean facing

  • Pre-Arrival & Arrival Experience

    Excellent — Cindy, the reservation specialist, helped plan our activities. They also arrange expedited airport transfer!

  • Future Forward

    This place is super conscious regarding the design and experience — every detail has been considered responsibly and with the environment in mind. I didn't see any toxic plastic anywhere. Glass water bottles in the rooms with refill and ice stations on each floor

  • Music

    The music is great… A totally relaxed vibe. And appropriately upbeat when the moment calls for it. Fun but not intrusive. I loved it

  • Year Opened

    2019

  • Designed By

    Founder and Creative Director Gabriella Khalil with London-based interior designers Sarita Posada and Courtney Applebaum

  • Health & Wellness

    A dreamy spa with a serene outdoor marble maze engulfed with tropical plants. Travertine tubs, ice and hot plunge pools, hammam, and sauna are all situated and sometimes hidden around an incredible pool and lounge area. I could spend the whole day there blissfully! The hotel has a strong focus on wellness & fitness, a superb gym, fitness classes led by experts from around the world, and continuous special retreat programming

  • Food

    The food is one of the reasons I will most definitely return to this hotel. Executive Chef Jake Brodsky has done an incredible job with a great and delicious menu at Tillies, the main restaurant. Paradise Pizza includes gluten-free options, and Coco Cub — the beachside restaurant has excellent sushi and Japanese dishes. Food for everyone. And you can order from all three places, whether by the beach, the pool, or in the room

  • Bar, Events & Nightlife

    There’s a bar within each restaurant, plus an additional speakeasy cocktail lounge- hidden within the hotel. I was lucky enough to have a private cocktail class there with Alberto. He showed me how to make their famous Jalisco Margarita — which is the perfect marg you’ll ever have. I also had great times between the curated events and dining in each of the three restaurants and the speakeasy

  • Minibar & Retail

    Absolutely fantastic — this is not a mini bar! It’s two refrigerators and a pantry full of great options including fresh coffee and a Chemex

Hotel Location 747 West Bay Road, Cayman Islands

Palm Heights is located on the famous seven-mile beach — the sand is like powder, and the sea is crystal clear turquoise. From the hotel, you can walk to the Caymana Bay complex, which has some nice shops and cafés if you feel the need for a change. I did a couple of boat trips and horseback riding along the beach and in the ocean, which was fun.
