Lighthouse Point Review
Leading scuba operator DiveTech's stunning eco-development features sustainable wood interiors and recycled concrete, an ecosensitive gray-water system, energy-saving appliances and lights, and Cayman's first wind turbine generator. But you needn't be an ardent diver or environmentalist to appreciate the nine striking units overlooking the eponymous dive site. Those glossy "granite" and "marble" surfaces might just be recycled beer or vodka bottles, and the mostly reclaimed, artfully distressed hardwood furnishings bespeak elegance. Each unit features energy-efficient dishwasher and washer/dryer, solar panels, glass-block features maximizing natural light, walk-in closets, cathedral recessed ceilings, jetted tubs, flat-screen TV/Blu-Ray DVDs, teak furnishings, and enormous patios with sensational sea views. Distinctive details include public bathrooms with bathysphere-like doors; salvaged antique anchors, buoys, and cannon as found art; the on-site eatery emphasizes fresh local organic produce; and a half-acre landscaped park on the dramatic ironshore. Best of all, these upscale green lodgings won't cost too much green.
