Sparsely populated Cayman Brac and Little Cayman are the perfect destinations to unwind and feel like the king or queen of your very own private island. Just take Cayman Brac’s Le Soleil d’Or, for example. This Five-Star Diamond Award resort has everything you need to feel like royalty. Start your day with a personal training session. At lunch, take a cooking class with a world-class chef. Hit up the beach, lounge by the pool, relax at the spa and enjoy a tour of their private 20-acre farm. End your day with an incredible farm- and ocean-to-table dinner with custom cocktails.
Luxury can also be found at the sister resorts Little Cayman Beach Resort and Cayman Brac Beach Resort.
A perfect day at the resorts includes beautiful ocean views, tropical breezes and world-class valet diving service with the on-site dive operator Reef Divers. If you’re not a diver, there is still plenty to do. Pass the day reading or napping on a hammock or lounge chair, paddleboard in turquoise waters or indulge in some pampering at the resorts’ spas: Tropical Touch Day Spa at Cayman Brac Beach Resort and Nature Spa at Little Cayman Beach Resort. “Our spa services are available to women, men and couples. They’re a great way to destress and leave guests with a wonderful post-vacation glow,” says Jason Belport, general manager of the beach resorts.
A five-minute walk down the beach from Little Cayman Beach Resort is The Club at Little Cayman, a luxurious, home-like getaway with one- to three-bedroom villas with fully equipped gourmet kitchens. Perfect for families, the villas offer more space yet are only a short, five-minute walk from Little Cayman Beach Resort, where guests have access to their facilities.
Finally, you can’t forget about Little Cayman’s Southern Cross Club, which offers “country club diving,” as described by owner Peter Hillenbrand. However, what really sets Southern Cross Club apart is their charter fishing. “We offer outstanding and lively in-house guided fishing services for bonefish, permit and tarpon; or go for the big-pull on our deep-sea fishing boat, Lucky Catch,” explains Hillenbrand. You may even be able to eat what you catch, as all drinks and meals are prepared from scratch using the finest ingredients available, including fresh-caught fish and garden-grown herbs and vegetables.
With all these amenities on the Sister Islands, the most stressful part of your upcoming vacation will be choosing which vacation to book.
