Cotton Tree applies for license

The Cotton Tree hotel resort at
Conch Point in West
Bay has applied for a
liquor license.

The Hotel license will allow people
to consume alcohol on the premises but the resort does not feature a bar area,
said Heather Lockington of Cotton Tree.

“Having a license is critical for
our hotel; it’s private and secluded and I purposely didn’t do a bar because of
the privacy of our guests that wish to come and relax in our little oasis
without having people tramping in and hanging around.

“The license would enable us to
sell alcohol on property to our guests rather than they leave to go out and buy
it or having a mobile service come in and sell to them directly.

“Right now they can drink in their
cottage but I provide beer and spirits free of charge and if they would like
wine I have a mobile service come in and they can buy directly from them,”
explained the hotelier.

Happy birthday

Cotton Tree has been open for a
year this month and Ms Lockington explained that although opening a hotel could
have been timed better economically, things had been ‘pretty good’ so far.

There are four cottages at the
hotel that are appointed with maid service, libraries of books, music and DVDs,
art from around the world, state of the art kitchens and spa bathrooms.

There is also a private spa
pavilion and outdoor shower. A number of therapies including massage,
reflexology and wellness rituals are on offer.

The new license for variation will be
heard at a special meeting of the Liquor Licensing Board of Grand Cayman to be
held at Customs Headquarters at Owen
Roberts Drive in George Town at 2pm on Thursday, 22 April.
