4 Things To Love About Plantana

Once again, Grand Cayman has been listed as the best Caribbean Island to visit in 2019 and here at Plantana, we couldn’t agree more!

From our crystal clear waters, white sand beaches and delicious warm weather, to our vibrant local culture and the Caymankind approach to everything we do, Cayman encompasses everything an island paradise should be.

When you stay with us, the entire Plantana family takes pride in ensuring we showcase all the best our community has to offer. Whether you are here on a couple’s retreat, girls’ weekend or family vacation, our slice of the world famous Seven Mile Beach is the perfect location for a getaway filled with fun, sun and unforgettable memories.

So, what is it that makes Plantana so special?  Here are 4 things (of many!) guests love about Plantana:

We are truly ‘your beach home away from home’

While you will likely want to spend all your time on our uncrowded, pristine coral sand beach, you will find that when you finally do retire to your Plantana condo, you will feel like you are home (minus the mess, of course!).

Each beach home has a lovely kitchen with all the trimmings, including a stove, microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator with an icemaker. With two supermarkets less than 5 minutes away, you can easily whip up your favourite comfort food to treat yourself after a busy day of relaxing by the beach.

You will also find a washer and dryer in your room, so you will never be without your favourite lounge wear or swimsuit for that matter.  And, of course, we have air conditioning and ceiling fans to help you cool down after a long day in the sun.

High speed internet in the units (and the pool and beach) will connect you to family and friends during your fabulous Caribbean retreat.

And with daily housekeeping (except for Sunday), we remove the work from your vacation so you can focus on more important things, like ‘me time’.

We’ve got your back on the beach

Although we love the beach, we do not like sunburn or crowds; a wet, sandy beach towel needs a back up and toys are always a must!

Thankfully, we are blessed to have lush, mature Casuarina pine trees scattered along our beach front as well as an iconic Sea Grape tree that provides gorgeous shade to help protect you from the sun.  We have umbrellas spotted across the beach, so you will never struggle to find somewhere to take a break from the sun, and lots of beach chairs and side tables make it easy to carve out your own area.

Need help entertaining the little ones on the beach?  We have a toy box filled with noodles, inflatable beach toys, spades and buckets and basically anything a kid would need to enjoy a day at the beach.  Big kids included!  And towels…our self-serve towel exchange at the office makes all the difference when you’re hitting the beach all day, or 2 – 3 times for the day!

We transport you to a tropical paradise

Our professionally landscaped gardens will capture your eye and your camera lens with their sea of bright colours.

Here at Plantana, we boast a wide variety of local, tropical plants including our national flower, the endemic Wild Banana Orchid, and our national tree, the indigenous Silver Thatch Palm (to appreciate this beauty, be sure to look out for hand plaited thatch hats, bags and other accessories, that have been skilfully created by local artisans with the dried tops of the Silver Thatch Palm, while you are at the local craft market).

We are also home to Sea Grape Trees, Bougainvillea, Scaevola, Casuarina, Coconut Palms, Areca Palms, Ferns, other orchid varieties and Crotons.  Keep an eye out for the bright butterflies, Curly Tail Lizards and a host of nectar feeding birds who call our gardens home.  Will you be able to spot them all?

We are more than a team, we are family

At Plantana, we fully embrace the Caymankind spirit.

Our entire team of skilled, professional and friendly staff are known to go above and beyond the call of duty to ensure your stay is truly spectacular. The Plantana family is made up of both locals and those who have come to call Cayman home, who are always excited to welcome you to our island and its culture.

Whether it is providing directions to a top notch restaurant or booking a Stingray City boat excursion, we strive to provide a warm and welcoming experience for you and those you love. And most importantly, we always look forward to welcoming you to the Plantana property.

So what is stopping you from booking your next vacation to Grand Cayman? From the perfect beachside location to our amazing team, make that call to experience your beach home away from home at Plantana.
