When it comes to luxe hotels, the Ritz Carlton tends to uh, put on the Ritz. This ritzy-glitzy upscale hotel chain is renowned worldwide for its swanky digs, and it is even better nestled on Grand Cayman Island! Let’s see how it stacks up to the Ritz-Carlton South Beach we are so familiar with.
The Ritz-Carlton is among the most prestigious, plushest and priciest luxury hotels in existence, a true spectacle. From the manicured grounds, luxury rental cars and elegantly appointed rooms to the available amenities. In fact, the luxury property is in a class of its own on the island, paling in comparison only to the marbled Caribbean.
This luxury hotel Cayman Islands stretches across 143 acres, from Seven Mile Beach to North Sands. For those who are unaware, that is the entire width of Grand Cayman Island! The Ritz-Carlton is divided into two separate sand-toned buildings, straddling the boulevard. A climate-controlled catwalk connects the two structures, and elaborate soundproofing prevents the rush hour and workday sounds below from trickling inside this oasis.
Looking past the valet plugged with Lamborghini rentals, Ferrari rentals and a multitude of other snazzy luxury car rentals, guests are ushered inside where a concierge will detail the amenities, including:
• 24/7 concierge service
• 5 restaurants
• 2 bars
• Golf course
• Health club & spa
• 2 outdoor pools
• Room service
• Endless water sports equipment rentals

Overall, this is a top-notch luxury hotel saturated with marble, stone, expensive hardwoods, plush carpeting and climate control. Luxury hotels of this caliber are priced to mirror that fact, and the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman is intensely expensive, with rates varying on type of accommodation.
Some reviews warn of rampant hidden fees, discovered upon checkout. It has also been relayed that if guests do not make a mental effort to explore Grand Cayman Island, it is quite easy to never leave the grounds of the Ritz-Carlton! I say it is best to rent a luxury car to ensure you receive the full island experience!
