The Ritz-Carlton offers unparalleled luxury and service infused with a welcome sense of place, including works by top local artists and craftspeople. The 144-acre resort, as exquisitely manicured as its clientele, is anchored by a seven-story behemoth that faces Seven Mile Beach on the west and the North Sound on the east. Top toque Eric Ripert created one of the eateries. Greg Norman designed the golf course; tennis is run by Nick Bollettieri (coach of greats like Andre
Agassi); La Prairie operates the sybaritic spa; and the Ambassadors of the Environment children's program was created by none other than Jean-Michel Cousteau. The staff is professional yet discreet, knowing their business not yours. Despite its glam romantic trappings, the resort is family-friendly, offering movie screenings at the poolside Periwinkle restaurant, stargazing with astronomers, and incorporating Caymanian culture into the estimable kids' club activities. Recently renovated rooms are spacious, hedonistic, and outfitted with high-tech conveniences.

Stayed at the Ritz for Spring Break 2009. This was the best vacation we've ever taken. The hotel was gorgeous no matter where you stayed. Rooms were spotless. Food was delicious. Movie night for kids next to restaurant so parents can relax. Staff was wonderful. Water and activities were unbelievable. Will have a hard time going somewhere else on vacation. LOVED IT!!!!!
