Westin Casuarina Resort & Spa on Grand Cayman recently announced a multimillion-dollar resort renewal project with enhancements planned across the property.
The oceanfront resort on the sands of Seven Mile Beach will see upgrades and additions through all guest rooms, suites, public spaces, meeting spaces, the fitness center and swimming pool. The project is scheduled for completion in late November in time for the Caribbean's high season.
The renovation employs an eclectic mix of new materials in island colors, including shellstone, abaca rope, rattan, sea glass and stained wood in soft blues and whites for a bright island glow.
Upon entering the resort, clients will be welcomed to a refreshed porte-cochère, featuring new landscaping and a renovated lobby that will have a Caribbean bungalow atmosphere. Extensive work in the lobby includes enhanced architectural details such as repainted wainscot, columns and ceiling, as well as new furniture and an art collection with portrayals of local flora and fauna flanked by large mirrors in mother of pearl frames.
Guest rooms and suites will be completely revamped to include new furniture, granite vanities, flat-screen plasma televisions, artwork, carpeting, Westin Heavenly Bed linens and duvets, plush towels and Heavenly bath amenities. Guest bathrooms will feature all-new chrome faucets, polished marble flooring, freshly painted walls and snapshots by local photographer Patty Hinz.
Hotel corridors are also being refreshed with new carpeting, repainted ceilings and walls, as well as new wall sconces. Elevators are receiving new ceilings, walls and floor finishes. The freshwater swimming pool is also being upgraded with new surface and lighting, as well as four new poolside cabanas. The resort fitness center will soon gleam with new equipment, flooring and fresh paint, while all meeting and banquet space will feature brand new modern carpeting. A new property management and reservation system will expedite bookings, while the resort staff will receive a stylish new look with refreshed uniforms.
