Royal Palms Christmas on the beach

Traditionally Christmas is a day to be spent with family, eating, drinking and making merry.

However, for the hundreds, even thousands, of people who moved to Cayman without family in tow, Christmas may be somewhat untraditional. Not that this is a bad thing – wouldn’t you rather be donning a Santa hat and heading for the beach than peeling potatoes and preparing small mountains of Brussels sprouts that nobody will eat?

With Christmas falling on a Sunday this year, Royal Palms is holding its usual Sunday afternoon Stoli Rehab session, but with a festive twist: In addition to the regular Sunday afternoon dance tunes streamed from X107 FM, a Christmas lunch of hot turkey sandwiches with gravy and stuffing will be served.

The rehab party takes place around the pool, in the cabanas and around the pool bar and specials are offered on Stoli vodka, Flor De Cana Grand Mojitos, Nicolas Feuillatte Champagne, Carib and Peroni beer and Sperone Prosecco.

It’s the ideal compromise; all the best bits of Christmas dinner (and none of the sprouts) with no preparation and no dishes to wash afterwards.

Plus you have beach, bar, pool and plenty of good company to keep you entertained – minus the stress that family get togethers sometimes entail.

The party starts at 1pm and goes on all afternoon, so even if you choose to eat your Christmas dinner elsewhere, you can have a truly tropical Christmas and wind down the festivities with a cool cocktail in hand, watching the sunset from one of the best locations on Seven Mile Beach.
