KEMBALI KAI & RUM POINT CLUB - CAYMAN ISLANDS
Easy elegance on the shores of Rum Point
Words by Claire Shefchik
In Bali, fishermen carefully construct their jukung boats out of the sacred Belalu tree, ensuring a continuous flow of energy and a perfect harmony with the spiritual world. Now, in that same tradition, residents can discover Kembali Kai, right in the heart of tranquil Rum Point.
In this exclusive gated community consisting of just five ultra-private homes, owners can immerse themselves in the peaceful rhythms of life on the water. Here, luxury meets simplicity with clean, architectural lines, lushly landscaped gardens, and water is given centre stage.
With an emphasis on quality, the 5,500 square foot Balinese-inspired homes offer a fresh aesthetic and open-plan design. The main level is comprised of an airy interior lounge, dining room, and spacious galley style kitchen – complete with stone countertops and high-end appliances, plus a powder room and guest bedroom with en-suite.
Living room doors open to an elevated al fresco dining area that is surrounded by dense tropical foliage and is enhanced by a personal reflection pool and lap lane and that is elegantly suspended over a private 30-foot boat dock. Championing privacy and an unparalleled aquatic lifestyle, the homes’ layout also underscores the inherent spirit of hospitality that has been designed into the residences.
Upstairs, each of the three expansive bedrooms has a walk-in closet, porcelain-tiled en suite and private wrap around sun deck, allowing occupants to enjoy the cool ocean air as they gaze across to the sandy shores of Rum Point Beach. The master bedroom takes lavish comfort up a notch with a sunken bath, walk-in shower, custom closet system and a secluded sitting area.
With an emphasis on easy elegance, only the finest natural finishes are used throughout including hard wood for the sun decks, polished concrete and stone with mosaic inlays of glass tile and wood for the floors, and simple line trim. Outside mature landscaping is complemented with ground lighting and sand and gravel private driveways.
Built to be low-key, but high-tech, Kembali Kai is prepared for whatever Mother Nature brings. Thoughtfully constructed by an experienced local architect to easily withstand hurricane forces, the homes have piled foundations, reinforced concrete ground beams, impact rated windows and doors, use only the toughest hard-wearing exterior finishes, and are set 10 feet above sea level. Residences can even be left at a moment’s notice, thanks to fully monitored security, giving owners peace of mind that their treasured investment is secure at all times.
For owners wishing to enhance their home’s security they can add customisations such as electronic roll down shutters, a generator, emergency water storage and video surveillance. For those desiring more bells and whistles, an exterior hot tub, pool heater and boat-lift are on offer.
Living here, residents can walk the stone’s throw to Rum Point Restaurant and bar, take advantage of world-class kitesurfing a mere five-minute boat ride away, hit the links at golf clubs only 20 minutes by boat, or enjoy a deep-sea fishing expedition for marlin and tuna in their aquatic backyard. Visitors can even access the airport in just 40 minutes.
More than merely a place to reside, Kembali Kai is island life as it is meant to be lived.
In the same spirit, residents and visitors alike are now able to enjoy Seven Mile Beach oceanfront luxury on a tranquil 500-foot stretch of white sand beach at Rum Point Club.
Courtesy of seasoned Cayman developer Joe Imparato, known for the legendary Caribbean Club and more during his 40-year career, the modern five-storey boutique condominium-hotel is Rum Point’s latest development and offers every imaginable luxury set amid the soft sands and quiet neighbourhoods of North Side.
Owners can dive into the liquid embrace of the beachfront infinity-edge pool, work up a sweat at the fully equipped fitness centre, unwind at the spa, or whip up a delicious meal at the al fresco kitchen. Onsite management ensures no need is unmet, and owners can relax knowing their home offers top-notch safety with hurricane-resistant, impact-proof doors and windows.
