Mandarin Oriental to open on Grand Cayman

02 Jul 2018
Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has announced that it will manage a luxury resort and residences on Grand Cayman in the Caribbean, currently scheduled to open in 2021.

Mandarin Oriental, Grand Cayman will be a 100-bedroom beachfront resort with 89 branded Residences at Mandarin Oriental and a 1,300sq m (14,000sq ft) spa with eight treatment rooms.

Situated on 67 acres at St. James Point, on the southern shore of the island, the site benefits from an elevated position overlooking its own secluded white-sand beach.

The contemporary bedrooms and suites will all face the sea, and there will be five restaurants. The development will also have its own farm, which will provide a ‘farm-to-table’ dining experience.

The resort will feature a range of wellness options. In addition to the Spa at Mandarin Oriental, it will also include a comprehensive fitness centre, several outdoor swimming pools and tennis courts. Landscaped walking and cycling trails will traverse the 67-acre site and a Beach Club will offer a variety of leisure and water sports activities.

The project is owned by Melkonian Capital Management and will be developed by New York-based RAL Development Services.

“This exciting new project will be the Group’s second property in the Caribbean and a fitting extension to our growing global resort portfolio,” said James Riley, group CEO of Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group. “The owner has assembled a spectacular site and has the long-term vision to create a unique resort experience that, together with Mandarin Oriental’s renowned service, will ensure an exceptional offering in Grand Cayman.”
