IHG Hotels & Resorts and Dart Properties unveil Hotel Indigo Grand Cayman on Seven Mile Beach in the Cayman Islands. Perfect for an island incentive, the property design draws inspiration from the surrounding neighborhood. New Orleans-based architecture and interior design firm Farouki Farouki spearheaded the project and infused the island’s lush topography through both warm and cool color palettes. Handmade pottery and curated artwork created by local Caymanian and Caribbean artists make for an expansive art collection decorating the property.

282 guest rooms and suites center a relaxing island spirit. The over 7,500 sq. ft. of meeting and event space includes the island’s first rooftop lounge—which is also the perfect place to enjoy innovative cocktails and Latin-inspired fare. Guests can take part in exciting exclusive experiences, such as a reservation-only, rotating concept exhibition kitchen.

If your group wants to explore the island, complimentary bikes make it easy to do so. The property provides guests with easy access to some of the Cayman Islands’ most popular sites, from Stingray City to Camana Bay’s high-fashion boutiques. The 24-hour onsite fitness center, poolside cabana service and beach chair and umbrella services are just a few of the amenities available for guests to enjoy an immersive island experience at this new luxury property.
