Cayman: Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa named one of Travel + Leisure’s Best Hotels in the World for 2021

(GRAND CAYMAN) – February 25, 2021 – Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, located on Grand Cayman’s legendary Seven Mile Beach, has been recognized as one of Travel + Leisure’s Best Hotels for 2021. Travel + Leisure’s T+L 500, included in the publication’s March 2021 print edition, is an illustrious list that recognizes the 500 best properties in the world.

“As the travel industry confronts unprecedented challenges, resorts, hotels, and safari lodges around the world are rising to meet the moment, acting as beacons of resilience and hospitality for both guests and their local communities,” Travel + Leisure’s editors write. “[E]ach hotel demonstrates a commitment to excellence, embodies the best qualities of its community, and offers an unparalleled experience — from amenities to on-site activities.”

Results of this year’s T+L 500 are derived from the results of the 2020 World’s Best Awards survey. The honorees are grouped into eight geographic regions: Africa and the Middle East; Asia; Australia, New Zealand, and the South Pacific; Canada; the Caribbean; Europe; Mexico, Central America, and South America; and the United States.

“There’s no question that the past 12 months have been a test for the hospitality industry — but this recognition from Travel + Leisure shows that Seafire has passed with flying colors,” said Steven Andre, Seafire’s General Manager. “Congratulations to our incredible team, who have continued to deliver exceptional experiences for our guests during difficult times. Seafire’s future is bright because of you.”
