Major Cayman hotel up for sale

| 29/01/2015 | 2 Comments

(CNS Business): Following a $15 million facelift, one of Cayman’s leading Seven Mile Beach hotels is on the market. According to a release from CBRE, the US-based agents managing the marketing process, the Grand Cayman Marriott Beach Resort is up for sale. No price tag has been revealed for the 4.74-acre oceanfront site on the West Bay Road but the agents appeared confident in the release that the 295-room hotel would be snapped up.

Built in 1990, the Marriott sits on 300 feet of Seven Mile Beach and had a recent extensive renovation. It is the closest full-service hotel to the airport and had an average occupancy level of more than 72% in 2014, even before the upgrade.

“The Cayman Islands are one of the most popular destinations in the Caribbean, renowned for its beautiful beaches, world-class diving and off-shore banking sector,” said Paul Weimer, Vice President of CBRE Hotels. “This a fantastic opportunity for a value-add investor to capitalize on strong market fundamentals and acquire the most desirable resort in Grand Cayman at a significant discount to replacement cost. There are also no more developable tracts of land on Seven Mile beach, making this a truly irreplaceable property.”

The resort features approximately 6,000 square feet of function space, including a 4,260-square-foot divisible ballroom and two meeting suites, and guest rooms, including 22 suites ranging from 370 to 600 square feet.

    So amazing when “apparently” air arrivals are up… Here’s an on the ground report – not busy. Everything is empty, restaurants, stores and hotels. The CBRE is reporting a 72% occupancy rate. You do the math. I doubt, strongly, that the hotel will be “snapped up”.
