(CMR) The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, is the first property in the Caribbean to attain triple Five-Star status. The award given by Forbes Travel Guide has only had 15 winners in the world.
This rating is usually earned for three different outlets under one roof; typically, it is a hotel, restaurant, and spa that earns the Five Stars.
Sprawled across 144 acres along Seven Mile Beach, the resort earned the top rating along with its Blue by Eric Ripert, a seafood-focused restaurant from the celebrated chef, and The Ritz-Carlton Spa, Grand Cayman, a 20,000-square-foot ultra-modern sanctuary, Forbes stated.
The Ritz-Carlton is among the Forbes Travel Guide’s 2024 Star awardees. Forbes Travel Guide said its awards reflect these trending tastes among travelers. For the 66th annual list of the best hotels, restaurants, spas and ocean cruises, FTG explored destinations offering meaningful experiences as well as smaller U.S. cities that are often overlooked. The awards also expanded to new destinations, including Azerbaijan, Curacao, Iceland, Kenya, Sardinia and St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
