Curio Collection By Hilton, Cayman Islands
Cayman's first Hilton Hotel, set to open in 2021, ushers in a new dimension for the local hospitality sector, bridging luxury, wellness and business.
Words by Natasha Were.
Acclaimed local developers NCB Group have partnered with Curio Collection by Hilton, a global portfolio of distinctive hotels, to create a boutique resort that responds to the worldwide growth in wellness tourism, whilst also catering to the increasing number of business travellers visiting the island.
The entire top floor of the 80-suite hotel will be a state of the art spa, equipped with a gym, yoga studio, thermal spa, sauna, hydro pool and relaxation areas, where guests will be able to workout or unwind with glorious views of the ocean through the floor to ceiling windows.
Beyond the spa, consideration for guests’ wellness is woven into every aspect, from the two restaurants and pool side cafe serving fresh local seafood and light, healthy cuisine (with fruits, vegetables and herbs supplied by the hotel’s own farm), down to the in-room yoga mats and lighting that regulates the circadian rhythm.
Located on the waterfront on the edge of George Town, the hotel is ideally positioned for easy access to the island’s financial and business hubs and will feature on-site conference facilities, creating a prime destination for incentive travel and international meetings.
The suites will feature a variety of one- two- and three- bedroom layouts, all decorated in natural palettes, accented by wood and porcelain stoneware tiles, and equipped with elegant contemporary furniture.
A unique development, the Curio Hotel is an exciting opportunity for discerning travellers and investors. Purchasing a suite for two weeks per year gives owners access to a sensational home-away-from-home, complete with unparalleled wellness facilities, outstanding culinary offerings and an annual 10% discount on food, beverages and all hotel services. For the remaining weeks the suite is added to the hotel inventory, with owners receiving 50% of the gross room rental, amounting to an estimated return of over 6%.
The suites have been configured for maximum functionality and flexibility, with options to suit a variety of needs and tastes. The Jasmine Collection, for instance, includes several units designed so that one bedroom can be locked off, creating an extra suite, and thus an additional rental income. For those seeking condo-style living, the Silver Thatch Collection, where suites are arranged over two floors with a spacious kitchen, living and dining room on the lower level, are ideal.
And for those who dream of revelling in such exquisite surroundings, with all the hotel amenities at their fingertips for more than the duration of a vacation, a number of three-bedroom suites have been designed as full time residences.
The Orchid Suites offer an abundance of space, all on one level, with a wraparound terrace (one with a private pool), open-concept kitchen, dining and living room, and three large en suite bedrooms. And for the ultimate in oceanfront luxury, the Royal Palms Penthouses, on the upper floors, offer unforgettable views and almost 4,000 square feet of exceptionally designed space and huge terraces, some with pools.
Built and managed by NCB Group, the developers will build on their reputation for sustainable construction, incorporating a wide array of energy saving electrical, mechanical and plumbing elements that will keep operating costs down and reduce its carbon footprint. Complementing the development’s environmentally responsible design and operation will be the assurance of the Hilton brand and its internationally recognised consistency and quality of standards.
