"On behalf of Ken Dart and Dart Realty (Cayman) Ltd., we are excited to announce that we have begun the one-year countdown to the opening of Grand Cayman's first luxury resort in more than a decade, the Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, and our for-sale residential offering, The Residences at Seafire, situated on the award-winning Seven Mile Beach," said Mark VanDevelde, CEO of DRCL.

"We are excited to partner with Kimpton Hotel and Restaurants, renowned in the travel industry for bringing the boutique hotel experience to America, on their first Caribbean resort," stated Jackie Doak, COO of Dart Realty (Cayman) Ltd. "This announcement reflects a two-year collaboration on the essence of the resort, its design and how it is experienced by guests and residents."

"The name of the property, Seafire, exudes Kimpton's stylish, playful brand while evoking Grand Cayman's stunning and celebrated sunset; Seafire is the inspiration that will infuse much of the hotel's interior design, activation of our outdoor spaces, how we transition from day to night and, of course, the programming for our guest experiences," Doak added.

Situated on the resort's 12-acre site, The Residences at Seafire is Dart Realty's first for-sale Seven Mile Beach property and includes 62 luxury residences in an elegant 10-story building adjacent to the hotel. The Residences at Seafire offers the best of both worlds, the privacy of a luxury residence and exclusive owners' rooftop lounge along with access to the best-in-class amenities offered at the resort, including two ocean view pools, six bars and restaurants, a signature spa, distinctively landscaped gardens and a coastal walking and biking trail.

Individual condominiums offer sweeping views of the resort grounds and Seven Mile Beach, and those facing the North Sound will have views equally as compelling as those that overlook the beach and Caribbean Sea.

The highly anticipated residences will be offered at varying price points which reflect a spectrum of choices including studio, one-, two-, three- and four-bedroom floorplans with generous terraces, some of which have convertible walls for flexible indoor/outdoor living. The diverse array of options provides buyers the possibility of acquiring a home on Seven Mile Beach for under $1 million or getting the penthouse of their dreams nearer to the $8 million price point.

"With stunning and sophisticated design, its prime Seven Mile Beach location and thoughtful consideration of every aspect of the guest and residential experience, The Residences at Seafire introduce a modern Caribbean aesthetic to luxury living, where interior spaces unfold dramatically to abundant gardens and resort amenities infused with the spirit of Kimpton's Caribbean debut hotel," Doak said. "In keeping with our Dart philosophy of design excellence, The Residences at Seafire will offer a perfect balance of sand, sea and sun combined with every amenity imaginable for families seeking the exceptional Caribbean living all inspired by our shareholder Ken Dart's own experience with his young family when they first visited the island more than 20 years ago," she added.

"The Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa and The Residences at Seafire reflect Ken Dart's vision of creating places where both visitors and residents want to gather, spend time and be inspired by the beauty of Cayman's natural environment," VanDevelde continued. "It is also testament to Dart's commitment to help grow the local economy and create new opportunities that will benefit the island's strong tourism industry."

The property topped out in August, and the design team is focusing its attention on the build-out of the extraordinary interior spaces. The resort and residences are on schedule for opening in November 2016.
