Southern Cross Club Review

Little Cayman's first resort was cofounded in the 1950s as a private fishing club by the CEO of Sears-Roebuck and CFO of General Motors, and its focus is still on fishing and diving. The adventure and barefoot elegance motifs are struck in the semi-open lobby with African masks, trophy game fish, hand-painted cabinets, and a magnificent indoor-outdoor bar. Psychedelically hued duplex cottages sit on Little Cayman's most spectacular white-sand beach, with views of the uninhabited Owen Island and romantic private outdoor showers. Rooms feature vivid colors, local art, bamboo accents and hardwood furniture, including several four-poster beds. Some have separate living rooms and indoor-outdoor showers; the newest incorporate ecologically sound aspects such as gray-watered gardens and solar-heated water. Dive services are superb—set your gear up once and the rest is done for you during your stay. The food is exceptional, served in various venues, including an air-conditioned split-level dining room with panoramic views. The resort was Green Globe certified in 2010.

    A wonderful place to rest & relax

    A great place to relax. Spent 4 nights there---great people & great food. Nice beach, but no swimming off beach due to eel grass. Can snorkel with dive boat--fabulous snorkeling. Suggest renting scooter to explore island, although staff will give you rides upon request. I can't wait to go back.
