Positioned on the southern-most coast of the island, atop one of the highest elevations, Mandarin Oriental’s latest venture on Grand Cayman is a sanctuary. Nestled within an enclave of coastal gardens, this lushly landscaped resort is the first Mandarin Oriental Residences in the Caribbean.

A collection of 89 residences, floorplans will include two, three and four-plus bedroom options, all complemented by the legendary service that Mandarin Oriental is best known for. Designed by industry-leading architectural firm Hart Howerton, with interiors from Meyer Davis, the resort and residences have created a synthesis of indoors and outdoors. With sales commencing this year, the development is slated for completion in 2024.

Penthouse 1003 is a grand four-bedroom home offering over 5,000 sq ft of indoor living space complemented with 3,300 sq ft of outdoor space. Located on the 10th floor of the West Tower, the residence has some spectacular 360-degree views across the ocean.

The living area is open plan, blurring the boundaries between the indoors and outdoors. The open gourmet kitchen features custom cabinetry, Calcatta countertops and backsplashes, with Wolf, Sub-Zero and Gaggenau appliances. Just off the kitchen is the Great Room, with ocean-facing living and dining areas.

The primary bedroom suite can be found in the eastern corner of the residence, where you can enjoy sunrise views with your morning coffee on the corner terrace. There is a spacious walk-in closet as well as large bathroom with soaking tub and both indoor and outdoor showers. Two of the other bedrooms also open out to the terrace, while a private study/entertainment room connects the living area with the art gallery corridor, which leads onto the bedrooms.

The elevated 10-ft ceilings frame sliding glass walls, which extend out to the wrap-around oceanfront terrace. Outside, you can find an outdoor kitchen with a bar and dining area, further seating areas, a private swimming pool and a sun deck. Designed for outdoor entertaining, it is the ultimate location to enjoy Grand Cayman’s fabulous sunsets.

Future homeowners will also enjoy signature culinary experiences, wellness amenities and a transformative nature-inspired spa. Central to the development, the clubhouse offers culinary outlets sure to excite epicureans. The main restaurant features a chef’s dining counter and exhibition kitchen, whereas the ocean grill is a day-to-night brasserie showcasing the best seasonal and local produce.

The expansive landscaped grounds around Mandarin Oriental Grand Cayman lead down to the white sandy beach. Several pools are also peppered around the development, including the Lagoon Pool offering lounging cabanas and a poolside bar and restaurant, and an adults-only pool.

Prioritizing sustainability in their plans, the hotel group’s decisions are careful. The guiding principle of ‘acting with responsibility’ is reflected across all properties, with goals including eliminating single-use plastic (they achieved this at the end of 2021); responsibly sourcing produce such as seafood, coffee and cocoa; and giving back to local communities.

The penthouse is available for $22m, irgcayman.com, moresidencesgrandcayman.com
