The Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort and Spa is continuing with its $8 million renovation, according to a release issued by the resort’s public relations company.
The project is scheduled for completion in January and comprises upgrades and additions through all guest rooms, suites, public spaces, meeting spaces, the fitness centre and what they term “the island’s largest freshwater swimming pool”.
The design was led by the firm Leo A Daly, which focused on “creating a relaxed island atmosphere that rejuvenates resort guests throughout their stay”.
The renovation employs an eclectic mix of new materials in island colours, including shellstone, abaca rope, rattan, sea glass, and stained wood in soft blues and whites for a bright island glow, said the press release.
There is a new, “refreshed porte-cochère”, featuring new landscaping and a renovated lobby that will have a Caribbean bungalow atmosphere.
Guest rooms and suites will be revamped to include new furniture, granite vanities, flat-screen plasma televisions, artwork, carpeting, Westin Heavenly Bed linens and duvets, plush towels and Heavenly bath amenities. Guest bathrooms will feature all-new chrome faucets, polished marble flooring, freshly painted walls and striking snapshots by local photographer Patty Hinz.
Hotel corridors are also being refreshed with new carpeting, repainted ceilings and walls, as well as new wall sconces. Elevators are receiving new ceilings, walls and floor finishes. The freshwater swimming pool is also being upgraded with new surface and lighting, as well as four new poolside cabanas.
The resort is now being known as the Westin Grand Cayman Seven Mile Beach Resort and Spa, having been previously called Westin Casuarina.
