GRAND CAYMAN, Cayman Islands – For the third consecutive year, Condé Nast Traveler readers have chosen the hotel as the best resort in the Caribbean. In the magazine’s 23nd annual Readers’ Choice Survey, more than 25,000 readers voted and ranked the best cities, cruise lines, airlines, hotels and resorts worldwide. The award was announced last evening and appears in the November issue.
Since its celebrated opening in 2005, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman has become a landmark and continues to be recognized as a leading lifestyle enclave for discerning travelers, garnering a series of media, consumer and industry awards.
In addition to the latest Condé Nast Traveler award, the hotel also received the coveted Five Diamond Award for both the hotel and Blue by Eric Ripert for the fourth consecutive hotel and restaurant evaluation by AAA. Blue by Eric Ripert is the only restaurant in the Caribbean region to have been awarded five diamonds with the closest establishments to have earned this honor being in Mexico and Bermuda.
“Our ladies and gentlemen deserve the credit for creating the island’s only Five Diamond resort,” said Vice President and General Manager Franz Ferschke. “Their passion and dedication in creating service excellence is why guests return year after year. It is because of their extraordinary service and genuine care that the hotel continues to be celebrated by the readers of Condé Nast Traveler among the best in the industry. This award belongs to them all,” added Ferschke.
Travelers who have yet to experience The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman can take advantage of the best values of the cold weather season with an early holiday season getaway. Now through December 16th, the resort offers its Peace of Mind package starting at $399, featuring accommodations, breakfast and a complimentary third night to experience the world class amenities that help make it the favorite Caribbean destination of Condé Nast Traveler readers and a Five Diamond resort.
