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. Located 15 minutes from the airport, the resort will be situated on 67 acres at St. James Point, on the southern shore of the island. 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.
