Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands – November 15, 2016 – Grand Cayman raises the stakes in luxury travel today with the opening of Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa and the launch of The Residences at Seafire on famous Seven Mile Beach. With a focus on design, Seafire’s 62 upscale modern residences offer a sophisticated and stylish Caribbean lifestyle and the chance to live where you vacation. Slated to welcome residents in 2017, The Residences at Seafire are set on 12 acres of lushly landscaped gardens and pool decks shared with Kimpton Seafire Resort + Spa, Grand Cayman’s first new hotel in more than a decade. A 10-story architectural wonder that possesses contemporary Caribbean flair, the property has panoramic views of both the Caribbean Sea to the west and the North Sound to the east, a rarity in Grand Cayman. The special location gives residents the chance to watch the sun rise and set over water every day. In fact, Seafire’s name is inspired by that magical moment when the sun touches the horizon and sets the sky alight. Renowned Interior Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard lends his signature style to the public spaces of The Residences at Seafire, drawing inspiration from the natural surroundings and vibrant colors found throughout the island. His vision of contemporary Caribbean design is showcased in the chic lobby and model residences, while the rooftop lounge dubbed “The Nest” gives residents a stylish outdoor entertaining space to share a cocktail or relax in peace. “The Cayman Islands is such a design-driven destination with an incredible flavor for modern luxury. I was inspired by the beautiful colors, history and craftsmanship of the islands to create an upscale living haven at The Residences at Seafire,” said Interior Designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard. The Residences at Seafire feature diverse floorplans to suit every taste and family, from boutique studios to spacious four-bedroom residences ranging in size from approximately 600 sq. ft. to over 4,000 sq. ft., and priced from $1 million to $8 million USD. Modern Caribbean features include convertible bi-fold doors which seamlessly blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living, open plan living spaces with high ceilings and light interiors that reflect the white sand on the beach below. High design is complemented by warm personalized concierge service, a vivid social scene and the ultimate privacy of a luxury residence. Seafire guests and residents have expansive, unrestrained access to Seven Mile Beach and its celebrated crystal blue waters, while an abundance of native plants and trees provide a sense of place and harness the natural environment of the destination. Sustainability is woven through the Seafire site, with walking paths, open-air architecture, meandering gardens, coastal bike trails, solar panels, eco-friendly materials and modern designs that utilize natural elements to maximize energy efficiency and put Seafire on track for LEED Silver certification. Seafire’s developer is Dart Real Estate, a privately-owned company with a long-term commitment to the Cayman Islands. An innovative architect of lifestyle, Dart Real Estate’s mission is to create places where people want to live, work, play, learn and invest. Dart Real Estate’s approach to design and place-making has guided the team that collaborated to engineer The Residences at Seafire. A partnership between SB Architects, the visionaries behind some of the finest resort communities in the world, and esteemed local architect John Doak was responsible for the high quality design of the building. The property’s landscape architecture was envisioned and developed by EDSA in partnership Dart’s 20 year-old nursery, using mostly native plants and trees. Guerin Glass Architects, an international firm with a focus on interiors that reflect the natural environment, conceptualized the finishes. Mark VanDevelde, CEO of Dart Enterprises (Cayman) Ltd, says: “Seafire exemplifies what Ken Dart, our shareholder, believes to be most important in our real estate development: long-term value creation, thoughtful design and creating places and experiences that enhance the Cayman Islands for residents and visitors alike.”
