The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman
Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman
This far-reaching property offers all the trappings one might expect from a Ritz-Carlton resort, plus access to the azure waters and white sands of not one, but two coasts—the North Sound on one side and Seven Mile Beach on the other. While the kids soak it up at the on-site water park or participate in one of many eco-adventure activities (supervised, of course), adults can improve their backswing at the Greg Norman-designed golf course or book a treatment at the La Prairie Spa. There are five restaurants on the property (ranging from casual to swanky), but only one is run by Chef Eric Ripert. The seafood-centric Blue by Eric Ripert has a particularly well-curated tasting menu and is considered by many to be the best dining experience in the Caribbean.
