SB Architects, EDSA collaborate for Kimpton’s Seafire Resort + Spa

Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants will open in November 2016 its first new-build resort on Grand Cayman in the Cayman Islands.  Kimpton Hotels and Restaurants and resort developer DART Realty Cayman chose SB Architects to envision Kimpton’s first resort and first property outside the US.

Seafire Resort + Spa will be the first new development on Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach in over a decade. The design for this new resort was the result of a collaborative effort between Kimpton, DART, SB Architects and landscape architects EDSA.

The property will have 266 guestrooms and suites including a penthouse Presidential Suite, 16 oceanfront suites, nine beachfront bungalows, 18 oceanview suites, 118 oceanview guestrooms and eight family suites. There will be balconies along the long wing of the hotel at an angle that will maximize water views.  There will also be spa bathrooms and kitchenettes.
