After a multi-year, extensive renovation, the Margaritaville Beach Resort Grand Cayman will officially reopen on November 1. To celebrate, the property is offering discounted rates of $155 per night—less than half of the normal price—from now through December 20.
To book, visit the website and click on the special offers page (either in the top navigation bar or a pop up on the left), and select the “Sea You in Paradise” deal. Choose your arrival and departure dates, or—if your dates are flexible—use the calendar function at the bottom of the page to view full availability. As of this writing, we found the $155 opening rates available every night in November.
The deal applies to stay in any King Guest Room with a private balcony or terrace (no view), normally priced at $349 per night. Ranging from 400-470 square feet, the rooms come with 55-inch LCD flat-screen HDTVs, wet bars, refrigerators, Keurig coffee makers, workspaces, and high-speed wifi.
Guests can upgrade to a King with Private Garden view for just $10 more ($165/night, compared to the original $375/night) or a Partial Ocean view for $187 per night—still less than half of the normal nightly rate of $425. Keep in mind that these prices are exclusive of taxes and resort fee.
All 285 guest rooms have been redone with a fresh white-and-sea-blue palette and an “island escapism” theme, reflected in the fin-shaped faucet handles in bathrooms; beach photography; and bedside lamps fashioned from intertwined driftwood.
As a part of the revamp, the resort also added more than 8,500 feet of meeting and event space, a new fitness center, and three new restaurants—namely Eating House 1503 by award-winning chef Roy Yamaguchi. A spin off of his Hawaii restaurant (Eating House 1849), the menu will serve a fusion of Hawaiian and Caribbean flavors, from sushi to ramen to wild-boar cheeseburgers. Frank + Lola’s (off of the lobby) will feature pizzas made with ingredients flown in from Italy, homemade gelato, and spiked Italian sodas; and the cafe-style Spread will be a go-to for sandwiches, salads, house-made pastries, and macaroons.
The resort’s complimentary activities include snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and bicycling. And, on par with the Margaritaville name, it has four pools—one with the swim-up 5 o’Clock Somewhere Bar & Grill—with floats and tubes, ideal for wastin’ away.
