Kimpton’s 1st Property Outside The U.S. Debuts In Grand Cayman
Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants has opened the doors to its first Caribbean property, Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, set on the famed Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman.
Seafire marks the boutique hotel company’s first foray into the international luxury resort market and Grand Cayman’s first new hotel in more than a decade.
Nearly every one of Seafire’s 266 guestrooms boasts a private balcony, while the three freestanding beachside bungalows offer loft-like one- and two-bedroom layouts, enhanced amenities and exclusive vantage points of the beach and ocean.
“Grand Cayman was the perfect choice for Kimpton’s first island resort, with an ideal location right on Seven Mile Beach,” said Steven Andre, Seafire General Manager.
“Seafire embodies the spirit and culture of the destination, and will allow guests the opportunity to truly immerse themselves in island life.”
From its signature restaurant Ave to its casual beach bar Coccoloba, all three of Seafire’s restaurants are helmed by Executive Chef Massimo De Francesca and share a common love of fresh, uncomplicated ingredients.
Avecita’s nine-seat chefs’ bar is aimed at food-lovers and features an ever-changing, seasonally dining experience prepared around a wood-fired grill and plancha.
For events, the resort’s indoor and outdoor meeting space includes the 7,076-square-foot Aurea Ballroom with soaring ceilings, the 10th-floor Presidential Suite, overlooking the beach and Caribbean Sea, and the expansive Seabridge Green event lawn for beachside daytime or evening occasions.
The resort’s amenities continue with the 8,500-square-foot Spa at Seafire, which features seven treatment rooms and a full array of services. The spa also features a Turkish style Hammam, the only one of its kind in Grand Cayman. There’s also a 1,770-square-foot fitness centre and weekly group fitness classes.
For kids (and parents) there’s Camp Seafire, the property’s program for children ages 4 to 12.
