Are Cayman’s tourism fortunes looking up? It certainly seems that way for one Grand Cayman hotel.
Morritt’s Tortuga Club in East End announced record numbers for the first six months of 2013, doubling its sales volume compared with the same period last year.
The shared ownership resort is undergoing a multimillion dollar expansion.
“We are very excited about our tremendous growth in the last six months and attribute much of this success to our team members, who continually strive to enhance the product we offer existing and future owners,” said CEO David Morritt.
He cited a partnership with “vacation management” firm Interval International as a key factor in increasing visitors.
“Our partnership with Interval has also been paramount to these accomplishments. The company’s promotion of the property has delivered a steady stream of new and upscale leisure travelers and provided us with valuable exposure to their global membership base.”
David Callaghan, Interval’s vice president of resort sales and service, said: “The first-class vacation experience the resort offers, which combines an unparalleled location, impressive accommodations, and excellent personal service, makes it very appealing to owners and guests. The popularity of the product has also had a meaningful positive impact on the Cayman Islands tourism industry.”
The resort includes 131 existing units, with 20 new luxury suites currently under construction at the site.
