A seventh floor spa will span the entire top storey of the hotel, offering guests the pinnacle of wellness.

It’s expanding 50 percent faster than the overall tourism industry. Travellers take 586 million wellness trips each year. In fact, the wellness tourism niche encompasses 15 percent of global travel. That’s second only to cultural tourism. It is also lucrative, as wellness travellers spend 130 percent more than the average traveller.
NCB, in partnership with the Hilton, is introducing a whole new tourism market to the Cayman Islands and will assist in positioning Grand Cayman as a top destination for the millions of wellness travellers seeking an experience such as this, allowing owners to capitalise on a billion-dollar industry*According to the Global Wellness Summit 2017.
As the fifth largest financial centre in the world and a thriving offshore business destination, Grand Cayman receives thousands of visitors each year who travel to the island for work. It has also become a top destination for incentive travel and conferences. With the expansion of the Owen Roberts International Airport, air arrivals to Grand Cayman have significantly increased due to the ability of the airport to accommodate larger planes and more frequent arrivals.
The Curio Collection hotel will be a place where work and wellness co-exist and are intricately balanced. A place where productivity and personal well-being flourish.
The Curio Collection hotel’s location is further enhanced by its enviable beachfront locale and incredible ocean vistas. With 80 suites (90 hotel keys) featuring one, two and three-bedroom options, there are multiple investment opportunities which cater to larger audiences, due to the spacious floorplans.
Incredible three-bedroom penthouse suites, featuring private pools will most definitely attract travellers looking for the quintessential luxurious escape to the Caribbean. With two restaurants and a pool side café, guests will be treated to an exceptional culinary experience. Combined with a fully-equipped gym and rejuvenating spa, the hotel will boast a level of service and unsurpassed amenities that will leave a lasting impression with anyone who stays there.
As a successful developer of sustainable residential communities, beachfront condos and commercial buildings, NCB is not only continuing this commitment in the design and operation of the Curio Collection hotel but taking it to a whole new level.
Sustainability is at the core of the project and renewable energy, environmental considerations and energy efficient mechanical, electrical and plumbing elements are intelligently integrated throughout the entire hotel. Solar panels, geothermal cooling, water recycling, SMART building management systems, LED lighting and solar water heating are just a few of the features that will significantly reduce operating costs, lower our reliance on the electrical grid and reduce our carbon footprint. Decisions that affect the bottom line and make an emotional connection with our guests.
NCB has also taken the focus of sustainability one step further to incorporate human sustainability. This encompasses the health and wellness of our guests and patrons, taking into consideration such factors as the quality of air, light, food, water, comfort, fitness and mind.
Cayman has successfully positioned itself as the culinary capital of the Caribbean and the Curio Collection hotel’s restaurant offerings will further distinguish and reinforce the island’s reputation. Making a delicious connection between wellness, nutrition and modern dining, our restaurants will offer a cuisine of appetisers, main courses and desserts for guests who are health-aware but don’t want to compromise on culinary finesse.
Guests will enjoy freshly prepared dishes that combine locally and sustainably sourced ingredients wherever possible. The hotel’s own private farm will provide an abundance of the fruits, vegetables and herbs featured on our menus, offering a true farm-to-table dining experience. Local fishermen will ensure only the freshest catch of the day is featured.

The pinnacle of the hotel is the spa, which is uniquely positioned at the top of the hotel. With the entire seventh floor dedicated to wellness - from a rooftop yoga pavilion and panoramic relaxation areas with floor-toceiling windows that command breathtaking views to a thermal spa, sauna and hydro pool - guests will experience the best holistic therapies and treatments surrounded by the Caribbean Sea and sun.
Fitness-orientated wellness activities are an integral element of this Curio Collection hotel’s experience.

Investors who purchase a hotel unit will have access to their suite for two weeks per year for their own personal use. The rest of the time, the unit is absorbed into the hotel inventory and utilised for hotel guests, creating lucrative rental income for the owner. This is a prime opportunity in that it is a hassle-free, high-yield investment. It gives buyers the exposure to both the property and the hotel and leisure industry – set to be one of the most consistent and highest growth sectors in the coming decades.
A unique ownership opportunity also exists as a select number of units have been specifically designed as full-time residences for those fortunate enough to call Cayman their home
There are no legal restrictions of any kind to foreign ownership of property in the Cayman Islands which makes it very attractive to overseas investors. A real estate title can be held in one name, by a group of people, or by a company or corporation. Title to property is granted and guaranteed by the Cayman Islands Government protecting ownership. These and several other factors such as no annual property taxes, political stability, favourable landlord and tenancy rules, a beautiful natural environment and many local attractions have helped to grow a significant and buoyant property market.
Overall, the sector has enjoyed a long and lucrative history and is likely to continue providing a secure future for any investor.
