Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, Grand Cayman

Set on famous Seven Mile Beach, the new Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa offers a number of luxurious all-natural treatments. Sea Fan De-Age, the sea-inspired, anti-aging treatment featuring OSEA products, combines pure white algae, white wine, white tea and copper peptides to provide deep hydration, smooth fine lines and stimulate collagen. “Seaweed is very complementary to the Cayman Islands as we are surrounded by crystal-clear blue seas,” says Spa Director Javana Phillips-Broad. “The facial takes each guest back to the basics—no machines are used, it’s purely hands-on—leaving the skin visibly hydrated and glowing from within due to the powerful combination of antioxidants.”

Post-pampering, indulge in a market-fresh meal at Ave or Avecita, which offer inspired Mediterranean cuisine. Avecita, tucked inside of the main restaurant Ave, offers a Spanish-style tapas menu and a beverage-pairing program with Spanish wines and cocktails that features local produce. Lucky guests who nab a seat at the Chef’s Counter receive custom tastings, created while they watch. kimptonhotels.com

Le Soleil d’Or, Cayman Brac

Grand Cayman’s sister islands—Cayman Brac and Little Cayman—are only a half hour away by air, but they make you feel like you’ve been transported back in time to a laid-back Caribbean lifestyle of yore, surrounded by wild natural beauty.

Le Soleil d’Or, a secluded resort just an hour’s flight from Miami, offers a farm-to-table wellness experience fueled by its 20-acre organic farm. Guests can indulge in fresh fruits and juices, vegetables, herbs and eggs from the farm at Mango Restaurant, which also serves housemade jams. Farm-to-spa-table treatments also take advantage of the farm’s organic bounty. Fresh aloe vera is used in the aloe vera and sugar scrub, which exfoliates and moisturizes your skin to a perfect polish. lesoleildor.com
