Those who want to experience the ultimate in relaxation, should head over to the spa for one of the Caribbean’s most indulgent spa experiences. The 8,500 square foot spa is inspired by the island’s lush forests and stunning reefs and the hamman is tiled in perfect blue stones that recall the clear waters that surround the Cayman Islands. Most of the products used are organic and locally sourced. Marine minerals are used in the Vitamin Sea facial and a quartz sand therapy massage uses local sand to relieve muscle aches and induce deep relaxation. While there, I tried the glorious two hour Hamman Purification Journey, a blissful treatment that incorporates volcanic ash, essential oils and a massage that results in the most perfect Hamman treatment ever.
Too many beach hotels suffer from mediocre or snore-inducing food. The Seafire breaks the mold with outstanding cuisine and more than enough choices. For fresh, local seafood and veggies coupled with a Mediterranean twist, try Ave. The handmade cocktails feature local exotic fruits and are both delicious and potent. Nestled inside Ave is Avecita, a dinner-only venue the showcases Spanish tapas. The Chef’s Bar seats only nine lucky guests who get to watch their food being prepared; other foodies can join the fun at several nearby communal tables. Of course there is beachside dining. Visit Coccoloba, where Caribbean food is infused with a taste of Mexico, and tequila and tacos are on the menu, as well as creative salads and freshly caught fish.
