It truly could not have been better. It was more magical and beyond our wildest dreams. We have the Kimpton Seafire Resort to thank, and of course, some good old fashioned LOVE.
So, I plan to recap our honeymoon in a few posts because…well, It was THAT good :). We stayed in the premium oceanfront suite; the accommodations were magnificent and deserve its own post. So for now I will keep it general.
I initially chose the Kimpton because I prefer their style of hotel; modern, sleek, clean, as opposed to other classic styles like the 4 Seasons. A huge draw was that the resort was less than a year old (gotta love a newbie) and situated on the gorgeous Seven Mile Beach, less than a 15 minute drive from the Grand Cayman airport. It was a shot in the dark; I hadn’t researched reviews and didn’t have time for any more reconnaissance. Boy were we lucky…it was simply perfect.
The Kimpton offers so many excellent amenities, including a top-of-the-line spa, two pools, expansive beach property accommodations, 3 restaurants (one beachside), excellent fitness facilities, an amazing kids club and more. I will recap as much as I can, but you really need to go there to get #allthefeels 🙂
While there, we dined at Ave…
And, my favorite, in-room on our outdoor dining set/balcony.
The food was so so fresh and we dined on many island specialties (tacos and fish) and a TON of fruit daily. The only “restaurant” we did not try was “Avecita” which is a tapas-style version of Ave and is basically a small section of the main restaurant, so we didn’t feel like we were missing out, but we will try it for sure when we return. ALL of the waitstaff (and staff in general) were so friendly and prompt. We had such amazing dining experiences at Kimpton
The Spa at the Kimpton is TRULY something special.
We saved our spa day for our last afternoon/full day on Grand Cayman. We wanted to soak up as much of the beautiful sun as possible; it was 83 degrees and virtually cloud-less EVERY day, ALL day. So we scheduled a couples massage for 2:45 and it was EVERYTHING we could have imagined and more. Magic. Hands. Scott and I agree that it was our best spa service ever. The spa itself was absolutely gorgeous and the amenities were simply fabulous.
The only regret I have is not spending more time there; I had scheduled a blow out for 4pm immediately following our massage because…island hair… which unfortunately didn’t leave us much relaxation time after. However, an amazing thing about the Spa at KSF is that if you book a service you can come visit the spa and use its amenities any time during your stay! Sadly, we left the next morning. Otherwise I would have TOTALLY revisited. It was impeccable, immaculate and everything amazing. This was definitely on my top 5 spa experiences, for sure.
Ok! Next up, i chronicle the activities/water sports as well as our room! So. Much. Fun.
