🎥 WATCH: Destination Tennis, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman ⬆️⬆️⬆️


The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman is a haven of luxurious rejuvenation where world-class wellness is the standard. In the spa, pampering is in the hands of ESPA, an aromatherapy and wellness pioneer, and 111Skin, a celebrity favorite product line for anti-aging.

111 Skin bottles the magic touch of world-renowned plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr Yannis Alexandrides. The Ritz-Carlton’s spa offers the A-lister’s go-to treatment at the exclusive 111 Skin spa in London, the Celestial Black Diamond facial. The 90-minute miracle has the reputation as the supermodel’s secret for a nonsurgical facelift, so dramatic are the effects of the hydrating, wrinkle-reducing combination of peels and massages.

EPSA is a name well-known to luxury travelers as the spa partner at world-class resorts. Its Meaningful Wellness Journey, exclusive to Ritz-Carlton locations, offers guests tailored treatments for increasing awareness and reducing stress. Each pillar—mind, body and skin—has three options, such as an awakening bamboo massage and detoxifying poultice treatment.

The spa dedicates 20,000 square feet to 16 rooms for body rituals rooted in marine plants, and has men’s and women’s sanctuary lounges. A spacious fitness center in the building has cutting-edge circuit training equipment, weights and a menu of classes, including strength training, cardio, yoga and Pilates.

For purely natural renewal, the Ritz-Carlton has no equal on Grand Cayman for an abundance of activities surrounded by paradise. Golf, tennis, pickleball, long beach walks and water adventures give guests many ways to stay active. At the pool, a concierge will escort you to a chair, set up your umbrella, and bring you a fresh piña colada.

“We don’t want people to exhaust themselves,” says general manager Marc Langevin.


Destination Tennis host Monica Puig found the Ritz-Carlton’s art program good for the soul. Scores of paintings for sale envelope one vast hallway in stirring beauty.

“Every time I crossed this hall I was able to take in and appreciate different scenes around Grand Cayman, and portraits and abstracts,” says Destination Tennis host Monica Puig. “It increased my cultural IQ around art.”
