Camana Bay Flavour Tour: New Friends & Sensational Food Made with Fresh Local Produce in a Beautiful Location - Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands - August 2017
Hearing one of my best friends, who lives in River Oaks, Houston, was safe after Hurricane Harvey put me in such a good mood and so I booked the Camana Bay Flavour Tour. I was so glad I did, despite it being on a Wednesday night, when I have work the next day.
The tour involved a friendly eclectic group of Caymanians & tourists, enthusiastic Sam led us, Camana Bay looks stunning at night and we got to try some sensational food.
Another truly memorable evening in Cayman Islands.
A Heavenly Sunday in Cayman Islands at The Westin, Grand Cayman being Pampered in their Hibiscus Spa and then Enjoying their Excellent Brunch - Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands - August 2017
After various people had praised The Westin, Grand Cayman on Seven Mile Beach I knew I had to spend a Sunday at that exceptional property.
I booked a Paradise manicure & pedicure in their Hibiscus spa and it was one of the best treatments I have had. I followed this by trying the hotel's brunch and F&B Manager Norbert and his team could not have treated me better.
This a hotel anyone visiting Cayman Islands must try.
My Second Houseguest in Cayman Islands Meant I Met Stingrays, Starfish & Turtles and Drank the New Veuve Clicquot Champagne - Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands - August 2017
My second houseguest in Cayman Islands used to work for Tony Blair in 10 Downing Street. I first met him when we were both living in Qatar.
His visit was an excuse to do so many things I have wanted to do (eg visit Stingray City & the Turtle Farm) and the long weekend went by too quickly.
It was a weekend that could not have gone better and I hope the photos below give you some flavour of it.
I am so lucky to have friends like this and live in Cayman Islands.
Yara, The Global Steakhouse, Seven Mile Beach, Grand Cayman - The Perfect Very Dry Grey Goose Martini in Cayman Islands - July 2017
Yara, The Global Steakhouse is a short walk from my condo on Seven Mile Beach on Grand Cayman.
My perfect very dry Grey Goose martini is stirred with a twist of lime and almost no vermouth. I do not agree with Four Seasons New York or the Four Seasons George V in Paris that there should be no vermouth in a very dry martini.
The barmen at Yara consistently execute these cocktails perfectly while keeping you entertained with their charming company.
🐻🐻🐻🐻🐻🐻🐻 (7 out of 5 ‘teddies’) - a '7 teddy' martini experience. My tip:- have a drink at the bar before dinner and engage with the barmen, you will not regret it.
Just to let people know that my move to Cayman Islands has gone more smoothly than I expected. Everyone here has been so friendly & helpful and Grand Cayman is stunning.
I have started my job as a Banking Consultant in George Town. The job is extremely busy but I have breathtaking walks on Seven Mile Beach to clear my mind each evening, a new personal trainer at World Gym and the Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman and Kimpton Seafire Resort at weekends.
Karen (the F&B Director at Ritz-Carlton) and Asli there have been incredible. The Weekend Financial Times is waiting for me at brunch on Sundays. There are a few photos below to give an idea of the astonishing beauty of Grand Cayman.
Si Frew has lived in the UK, Bermuda, Qatar, Cyprus & the Cayman Islands. During this time he met Whoopi Goldberg (in Claridge's), Mike Tyson (in the Concorde Lounge at JFK) , Gordon Ramsay (in the Doha Four Seasons), Chris Eubanks (in The Dorchester), Cherie Blair (in Bermuda & again in the Doha Four Seasons) etc. There are funny stories attached to all these interactions, feel free to ask Si about them when you meet him.
