SEAFIRE RESORT + SPA, KIMPTON’S FIRST CARIBBEAN PROPERTY, WILL OPEN NEXT YEAR

We know Kimpton Hotels for its quirky, contemporary properties in the United States, but next year the brand (now owned by InterContinental Hotels Group) will open its first international venture, for which they’ve chosen the Caribbean – the Cayman Islands to be more precise.

Seafire Resort + Spa is being built on Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach, the first construction to happen here in over a decade. The site used to be a Courtyard Marriott, which was razed to make way for two 10-story buildings, one for the hotel and one with condominiums.

Seafire will have 265 rooms and suites, as well as three bungalows along the beach. There is a lot to like in this first guest room image, with dark chocolate walls, pretty light fixtures, an interesting headboard and crisp white sheets on the bed.

There will be three restaurants, including a rooftop restaurant and a beachside bar and grill. Two pools will have ocean views and bars.

We don’t have many details on the ‘state-of-the-art’ spa, but we presume there will be a number of treatment rooms, sauna/steam room, and fitness centre. Opening of Seafire Resort + Spa is scheduled for November, so hopefully this time next year? When more details about room types and rates come out, we’ll let you know.
