Joining Pink Sands Club, Canouan in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines in the Caribbean, Mandarin Oriental, Grand Cayman will be a 100-room beachfront resort with 89 branded Residences at Mandarin Oriental.

From an elevated point, it will overlook its own secluded white-sand beach. All guestrooms and suites will all face the sea.

There will be five restaurants and bars and its own farm, which will provide a farm-to-table dining experience. Wellness options included a Spa at Mandarin Oriental, a fitness center, several outdoor swimming pools and tennis courts. Walking and cycling trails will traverse the property and a Beach Club will offer a variety of leisure and water sports activities.
