Ritz-Carlton location opening last week with a catered reception.
Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman

higher standard not just to Cayman, but to any region of the world.
“You have to provide services and
experiences to people that they can’t get anywhere else,” he said. “That comes from quality, vision and
The best must work with the best,

with people,” he said. To that end, Rick Moeser, vice president of Christie’s
Great Estates, was that perfect partner.
“With Michael, not only was his
exceptional vision realized, but it actually exceeded all expectations as he
created something truly extraordinary,” he said.

other high-end luxury brands such as world-class chef Eric Ripert’s restaurant
Blue, Greg Norman Golf Course Design, and Silver Rain, a La Praire spa, all of
which have partnered with the Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman in successful,
“Our goal was to bring real estate
products that are more innovatively designed, more beautiful, and higher
quality,” said Mr. Ryan.
“We’ve been devoted for over a
dozen years to do that, and as we expand our service model in real estate, it
was natural for us to say, ‘Well, we need a partner who is also focused on our
standards,’” he said. “And after looking
for years, the only logical choice was Christie’s.”
