CAYMANIAN RESORT ANNOUNCES DISCOUNTED RATES FOR CAYMAN EVENTS

Come for Warm Island Hospitality on Grand Cayman, Stay for Inaugural Foodie Event

GRAND CAYMAN, CAYMAN ISLANDS – To promote Cayman Culinary Month, a celebration and exploration of local cuisine, in January and February 2012, Cotton Tree is pleased to offer 15% off the first three nights of any stay at Cotton Tree during the period from January 3, thru February 15, 2012.

Cotton Tree, the Cayman Islands’ first cottage resort to boast authentic Caymanian character, bungalow charm and luxurious modern conveniences envelops guests in the warm comforts of traditional Caribbean hospitality, while offering them ideal proximity to the best of a world-class port-of-call.

New to the menu this year is Slow Food Day. Launching February 4, 2012, this inaugural event—a joint sponsorship between Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink, Slow Food South Sound, and Cayman Islands Agricultural Society among others—is dedicated to raising awareness for Grand Cayman’s own food producers and for the island’s notable leap up the food chain as an elite destination for jet-setting gourmands.

Slow Food Day will culminate with a farm-to-table dinner hosted at Michael Genuine’s Food & Drink, featuring guest chef Jonathan Waxman.

Indulgences extend at Cotton Tree, where plantation-era elegancy defines the resort’s scattering of exquisitely appointed, pastel-hued beachfront cottages fashioned to reflect authentic Grand Cayman. Surrounded by lush gardens and fruit trees, and located just steps from the island’s celebrated white-sand shorelines, the breezy boutique property proffers a private, secluded hideaway.

Resort amenities include upscale accommodation in a Caymanian-inspired beach cottage, each featuring comfortable living spaces, spa bathrooms, fully equipped kitchens, plasma TVs, and complimentary Wi-Fi, local calls, and housekeeping services every day excluding Sunday; a pre-stocked selection of regular and decaffeinated coffee, bottled water, tea, milk, sugar, orange juice, and assorted cereals;

 access to and the use of a swimming pool; fitness center, a media library of books, music and DVDs; recreational activities including water sports, hiking, biking, and bird-watching; cultural diversions, on-site art and culinary classes; and

 one-way airport transfers. Concierge services are also available to guests seeking to customize a personalized vacation, as are sommelier services.

Discounted rates, valid January and February 2012, require a three-night stay and start US $715 excluding government tax of 10%. Get the latest updates on Slow Food Day, and its chefs and farmers, by following Michael’s Genuine Food & Drink on Facebook and Twitter @MGFD_GCM with hash tag #SFD12.

About Cotton Tree: The Cayman Islands’ new luxury hideaway, Cotton Tree, on the northernmost point of Grand Cayman (just 10 minutes from the famed Seven Mile Beach), beautifully evokes the spirit of the Cayman Islands with its pastel-hued, plantation-style cottages just steps from the Caribbean Sea and lush garden setting of tropical flowers and avocado, guava, mango and cotton trees for which the hotel was named. Owner Heather Lockington, a global traveler who was born in the Cayman Islands, built her dream property in West Bay, creating an authentic haven where guests could embrace Caymanian heritage. Four 1,600 square foot two-bedroom beachfront cottages resemble fully equipped houses featuring “Caribbean chic” d├ęcor, classic contemporary furnishings, French doors overlooking the sea, plasma TVs, state-of-the-art Kitchen Aid appliances, and more. Additional amenities include a freshwater swimming pool, fitness center and spa pavilions nestled among seagrape trees, perfect for a sunset massage. A personal chef can whip up gourmet meals accompanied by wines chosen by a sommelier, or Cotton Tree is a quick drive to Grand Cayman’s best restaurants. Hotel services such as a reception/concierge, bellhop, housekeeping and turndown on request are also featured.
