We do truly value our guest’s suggestions. In response to a guest suggestion, two umbrellas have recently been added around the pool.

This past weekend, locals and tourists alike were regaled at Cayman Carnival Batabano - the island's national carnival, which is held annually during the first week of May. The festival’s original name, Batabano, is a salute to Cayman’s turtling heritage - the word "Batabano" refers to the tracks left in the sand by sea turtles as they crawl onto the beach to nest. Finding these tracks was – and still is – a reason to celebrate!

This Easter Sunday, our special young guests at Plantana came out to participate in an Easter Egg Hunt. Over 300 eggs filled with assorted candy were scattered and cleverly hidden throughout Plantana’s south rear gardens.

Plantana has an idyllic wide expanse of beach along Seven Mile Beach and at the perfect location that offers both tranquility and the convenience of wonderful dining, shopping and leisure activities all within walking distance.

The Sun Setters Taking in the magic of a Seven Mile Beach Sunset is indeed the perfect ending to a perfect day and the best seat in the house is… well, outside!

We have so many guests that have become friends during their vacation time at Plantana. Over the years, they vacation at the same time, reconnect and socialize. Earlier this season, around 30 guests of all ages gathered for a potluck social.

We recently had the pleasure of a lovely beach wedding at Plantana but there’s so much more to this romantic story!

The couple traveled all the way from Perth, Australia and returned to the place of the marriage proposal at their special spot on Plantana’s Seven Mile Beach. The engagement ring was truly special beyond monetary value as it was personally made by the groom out of Casuarina pine tree needles and jeweled by a garnet flower, all collected and secretly crafted at Plantana.

This past week at Plantana we had quite a few gatherings of families vacationing together taking advantage of the USA’s President’s Day Holiday.

I often comment how nice and interesting our Plantana guests are. This was recently reaffirmed after a conversation with Father Peter Timmins who shared with me a little of his personal history and his recent retirement endeavors. As it turns out, Father Timmins, who has been vacationing in Cayman for over 30 years and, of course, is a part of our Plantana repeat guest family, is also an author!  His latest creation, The Fourth Vow is a work of fiction of international intrigue. I haven’t personally read it yet but here’s the synopsis and some reviews

After having a couple days of overcast skies and rainfall earlier this week, I woke this morning and looked outside and thought to myself “oh, what a beautiful day” and the lyrics and rhythm of Bob Marley’s song “Sun is Shining” immediately came to mind… the sun is shining, the weather is sweet.

This weekend I had the wonderful opportunity to experience the Bon Vivant Champagne Brunch Cook-off event at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, which was just one of the fabulous epicurean events of the 5th Annual Cayman Cookout.

Over the last few days, guests have been arriving at Plantana and the experience has been quite amazing to behold– guests greeting and hugging staff who they have come to know over the years, extended family members greeting each other as they arrive at different times from different places, introductions to the adorable babies who are the latest addition to the family, grandparents and little grand-kids together strolling down to the beach, and teens just ‘hanging-out’.

Plantana - it keeps getting better! Enjoy complimentary WIFI around the pool and on the Beach!
