(CMR) Le Soleil d’Or luxury resort is closing down on the 26th October indefinitely after only several years in operation.
This is seen as a significant development on the Brac which has seen a number of hotels and resorts close and remains abandoned and dilapidated properties.
The Alexander Hotel closed its 31-room property in June 2014, after a protracted standoff over the offensive smell coming from a neighboring saltwater pond.
While this may come as a surprise to many on Grand Cayman many Brac residents have been discussing the unusual management team and property for some time.
Questions have been asked about concessions granted as well as the government’s unquestionable embracing of the project and funds into the island.
Le Soleil d’Or is both a boutique hotel and a collection of private cottages set on a 20-acre organic farm near the Caribbean Sea on the remote island of Cayman Brac. The property boasts a farm-to-table restaurant, beach club and spa.
Exclusive CMR sources indicate that the resort and private cottages will be closing at the end of the month with no indication of if it will ever re-open. There are a number of staff members that will be instantly unemployed.
The resort features a farm to table concept and also boasts an excellent restaurant with fresh food from its own farm-grown produce and meats.
There have been rumors for months now that New York-based owner, Mirjana Mirjanic, has been up in New York at Trump Towers under the order of the US authorities.
Mirjanic has been involved in the residential and commercial building cleaning and maintenance industry in the New York area since 1990.
There’s has been no official statement from the resort at this time.
