Dart Realty selects Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants to manage its first resort developement

Grand Cayman’s first boutique-style hotel will also be the first Kimpton property in the Caribbean.

CAYMAN ISLANDS, GRAND CAYMAN – Dart Realty (Cayman) Ltd. announced that it has signed Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants to manage Dart’s first resort property, a 263-room hotel with 56 residences on Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman.

Scheduled to open in 2016, the property will feature five restaurants and lounges, expansive indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, a cascading oceanfront pool and a destination spa. A signature of the property will be the sweeping water views from all the guest rooms and public spaces as well as six beachfront bungalows.

Dart Realty assembled a team of industry leaders to articulate Cayman’s modern Caribbean aesthetic for the island’s first design-driven resort. As project architect, SB Architects brings a world-wide reputation for design excellence and expertise in large-scale Caribbean resorts which is complemented by the design practice of John Doak Architecture, an authority on Cayman’s architectural heritage. The resort’s lush grounds and abundance of open green spaces will be designed by landscape architect EDSA and brought to life by the native and endemic plants and trees cultivated in Dart’s 26-acre nursery. Interiors by Powerstrip Studio and restaurants and lounges by Mark Zeff Design will capture the highly-stylized ambiance and playful spirit that characterize Kimpton hotels, with distinctly Caribbean style.

A pioneer of the boutique hotel concept in the U.S., Kimptonbrings to the Caribbean a reputation for unique hotels, each with its own personality and character. Dart Realty considered many major brands for itsfirst resort property and found Kimpton aligned with both the market’s needs and Dart’s approach to world class product, workplace culture, sustainability and customer service.

“Kimpton excels in offering stylish yet comfortable hotels and providing genuine, unscripted guest experiences,” said Jackie Doak, Chief Operating Officer of Dart Realty. “We were particularly drawn to Kimpton’s passion for creating a vibrant atmosphere in hotels and restaurants equally enjoyed by guests and locals,” she added. “Ken Dart’s vision is for a welcoming resort that showcases the same Caymanian hospitality that inspired him and his family to return to the island after their first visit more than 25 years ago.”

When it welcomes guests as the first Seven Mile Beach resort to open in a decade, the hotel will be designed to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification. The project is estimated to generate more than 400 jobs over the build-out period at a cost exceeding US $170 million.
