A luxurious resort with modern rooms and outstanding beach and swimming pool areas, Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa is one of the Caribbean’s best beach resorts. Located on Grand Cayman’s renowned Seven Mile Beach, it caters especially well to couples – but also welcomes families. There’s a daily resort fee, off-site shops and restaurants in the immediate vicinity are lacking, and there’s no swim-up bar; but the property offers a large stretch of beautiful white-sand beach, a trendy multi-level swimming pool area with chic umbrellas and loungers, poolside and oceanfront cabanas for rent, an 8,500-square-foot spa with top-notch amenities, three excellent on-site restaurants, a kids club for ages 4-12, a mostly tranquil overall atmosphere, and great sunsets that “seem to set the ocean ablaze” (hence the hotel’s name). Other perks include a coffee drink and fruit smoothie pantry with croissants and pastries, a great fitness center with plenty of equipment and space, and impeccable overall service that rivals that of any luxury resort brand. Rooms come with contemporary décor, triple-sheeted Frette linens, floor-to-ceiling windows, excellent ocean views (in most), large flat-screen TVs, and stylish touches with subtle bursts of color; in addition to standard rooms and studios, one- and two-bedroom suites are available. Activities include stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, lawn yoga classes, paddleboard yoga classes, Stingray City snorkeling tours, scuba diving, jet skiing, and sailing.
