The Cayman Islands have long been a romantic destination for couples. Grand Cayman is the central hot spot and perfect for couples looking to have their honeymoon in Grand Cayman or host their destination wedding on the islands. The Cotton Tree is the Cayman Islands’ first boutique cottage hotel and is located on the northernmost point of Grand Cayman, just 10 minutes from the infamous Seven Mile Beach.
The property features four bright plantation-style beach cottages in a garden setting. The Cotton Tree debuted a new “Couples Rate” starting in 2011. Throughout 2011, couples get a deal worth 30% in savings. During the busy season, November through April, the Couples Rate starts at $675 a night. During the rest of the year, the Couples Rate starts at $450 per night. The rate gives couples use of the entire cottage (except for the second bedroom) and all its amenities.
The Cotton Tree’s cottages are outfitted with “Caribbean chic” décor and all include contemporary furnishings, French doors overlooking the Caribbean Sea, 600 thread-count Egyptian Cotton sheets, a spa or rainforest shower and Jacuzzi tub.
The kitchens are also state of the art and perfect for any couple who wants to remain self-sufficient and isolated on their honeymoon or destination wedding. There are Kitchen Aid appliances, granite counter tops, high-end cutlery and cooking utensils and a French press coffee maker. Best of all, the refrigerator comes pre-stocked with breakfast items like organic eggs, juices, bread, cereal and local condiments.
Having everything in your very own cottage allows couples to stay as private as they like, but with plenty of opportunity to visit nearby attractions or some of the island’s best restaurants. Couples also have the option of having continental breakfast delivered daily or a personal chef to whip up gourmet meals in their own private kitchen.
The Cotton Tree allows couples to feel as though they’re in a home away from home – a really nice home away from home. The cottages also feature three 42” plasma TVs, an iPod docking station, Wii, laser printer and laptop. The traditional hotel offerings are also available upon request like concierge, bellhop, housekeeping and turndown service. All guests also have access to the hotel’s freshwater swimming pool, fitness center and yoga and spa pavilions.

Our editor in chief here at Destination I Do Magazine was fortunate enough to visit the Cotton Tree and look for her review in the Spring/Summer 2011 issue of Destination I Do Magazine which hits stands the end of February.
