Mandarin Oriental Signs Hotel and Residences on Grand Cayman in the Caribbean

Mandarin Oriental has signed a deal to manage a luxury resort and residences on Grand Cayman in the Caribbean.

The three Cayman Islands (Grand Cayman, Little Cayman and Cayman Brac) are a British Overseas Territory located in the western Caribbean.

Grand Cayman is the largest and most visited island, and has regular direct flights from 15 US cities, Toronto, London and various Latin American and Caribbean airports. The island is renowned for its tranquil and safe environment, clear waters and world-class diving.

Currently scheduled to open in 2021, Mandarin Oriental, Grand Cayman will be an exclusive 100-room beachfront resort with 89 branded Residences at Mandarin Oriental.

Located 15 minutes from the airport, the resort will be 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 resort will feature five restaurants and bars and even its own farm so that true farm to table dining can be enjoyed by guests.

A range of wellness options will include a spa, 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.

A range of flexible meeting and banqueting facilities, including outdoor areas, will provide ample space for destination weddings, social and business events.

The project owner is Melkonian Capital Management, an alternative investment company specializing in investment opportunities in private equity, real estate and public markets. New York-based RAL Development Services will serve as the development partner.
