Dart Realty has announced that it has signed Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants to manage Dart’s first resort property, a 263-room hotel with 56 residences on Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman. Scheduled to open in 2016, the property will feature five restaurants and lounges, expansive indoor and outdoor meeting spaces, a cascading oceanfront pool and a destination spa. A signature of the property will be the sweeping water views from all the guest rooms and public spaces as well as six beachfront bungalows.
Dart Realty assembled a team of industry leaders to articulate Cayman’s modern Caribbean aesthetic for the island’s first design-driven resort. The resort’s grounds will be designed by landscape architect EDSA and interiors by Powerstrip Studio and restaurants and lounges by Mark Zeff Design.
“We were particularly drawn to Kimpton’s passion for creating a vibrant atmosphere in hotels and restaurants equally enjoyed by guests and locals,” said Jackie Doak, Chief Operating Officer of Dart Realty.
The project is estimated to generate more than 400 jobs over the build-out period at a cost exceeding $170 million.
