$285m hotel planned

Howard Hospitality Group, an international hotel investor, developer and operator, has announced the development of an all-new resort located on the former Pageant Beach site in Grand Cayman.

The $285 million development will make a splash, creating a destination that brings together George Town and Seven Mile Beach, with one-of-a-kind features and deluxe accommodations, as well as unique opportunities to enjoy the area’s idyllic, natural setting.

“Our team is thrilled to be a part of such an extraordinary project, especially at a time when tourism and construction in Grand Cayman is so strong, with so much opportunity,” said Howard Sitzer, chairman of HHG.

“Pageant Beach has long been an iconic area of Grand Cayman and we are thrilled to submit plans for a resort that will help locals and travellers connect with the natural beauty that exists there.”

The 456-room resort will feature five-star amenities and services. Current plans call for seven food and beverage outlets, including a rooftop bar and grill offering the opportunity to dine while watching Grand Cayman’s unparalleled sunsets, a rooftop international spa, and scenic views from a rooftop infinity pool. Three additional pools will be available, as well as a movie screening room and 35,000 square feet of flexible function space fit to satisfy any special occasion.

With the Caribbean Sea as its backdrop, the resort will feature a variety of watersports and recreational activities for friends and families to add to their daily itinerary, including an educational eco-walk along the beach’s shoreline.

A kids’ club will also be available for children to participate in throughout their stay. Six waterfront villas, as well as condominiums, will be available for purchase, allowing travellers, investors and locals to own their own piece of paradise.

The resort brand is yet unnamed, however HHG indicated in initial plans that the property will feature a major global hotel flag.
