It’s February and Romance is in the Air on Grand Cayman!

coupleIt’s true. Nothing says romance like a vacation for two on a beautiful sun-splashed Caribbean Island. And there are few places prettier than the wide, white-sand stretch of Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman Island. From the warm sun to the crystal clear turquoise waters to the soft ivory sands themselves, the setting of The Residences and The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman is perfection itself. Whether you’re planning an extravagant honeymoon, an unforgettable special anniversary or just want to escape from winter’s chill and rekindle a little romance, you’ll find a warm, welcoming retreat on our picture-perfect shores.

Of course, just soaking up the sun on the beach and splashing in the surf together are sure-fire ways to warm up any relationship. But you can amp up the romance quotient with these great ideas.

Learning something new together is a wonderful way to bond and grow. So consider an afternoon sailing lesson with the pros at Sapphire Watersports…learn the basics of stand-up paddleboarding or sea kayaking in the lagoon…or discover the joys of snorkeling in our crystalline waters.

Once your snorkeling skills are sufficiently sharpened, treat yourselves to the ultimate luxury of a private chartered powerboat for a half or full day. Sit back, relax and enjoy the wind as your soundtrack and the waves as your view as your captain takes you on an exploration of the waters off North Sound. Your boat will be equipped with everything you need, from snorkel equipment and towels to light refreshments. And it’s all, oh, so romantic!

Couples who like the edge of a little sporting competition will find the Resort’s superb tennis and golf are the perfect outlet. Or head into town for a little duty-free retail therapy and pick out something sparkling to put on her finger or around her neck!

Nothing says romance like a day of primping and pampering at the spa. Schedule a couple’s massage and unwind together in the capable hands of the massage magicians at Silver Rain, a La Prairie Spa, at The Ritz-Carlton. You can visit the stunning spa itself or book a sensual massage for two in one of the Resort’s private beachfront cabanas and let the sounds of the surf just a few yards from your massage tables relax you even more deeply.

Or consider an afternoon of separate his-and-hers indulgences at Silver Rain that will leave you ready and relaxed for a romantic evening together on the town. Ladies will enjoy one of the spa’s luxurious full body treatments featuring exotic marine extracts or diamond and pearl crystals followed by a La Prairie signature facial to hydrate, plump and smooth skin. For the gentlemen, Silver Rain offers a complete menu of special services, including men’s facials, manicures and pedicures. Cap it off with a deep tissue massage to leave you feeling as great as you look.

Once you’re suitably relaxed, recharged and revitalized, it’s time for a romantic evening out. Dining options at the Resort are exquisite and varied, but what could compare on the romance-meter to a fantasy beachfront dinner under the stars? Let the chefs of the Resort’s renowned Seven spoil you with the freshest seafood and steaks—creatively prepared and served in your own private oceanfront cabana. The pièce de résistance? Sharing an indulgent dessert—like their signature Molten Chocolate Cake or Chocolate & Sea Salt Caramel Candy Bar—on a moonlit night while the music of the waves plays in the background.

Later, dance the night away—or just relax with a signature hand-crafted cocktail (featuring a top-shelf Island rum of course) and listen to live music—at Silver Palm at The Ritz-Carlton, one of the Island’s premier, upscale night spots.

Whatever romance means to you, you’ll find it in abundance in our beautiful Caribbean retreat!
