La Prairie Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman

A Swiss spa sanctuary with a Caribbean spin
The legend of La Prairie skincare was born along the shores of Lac Léman, the largest Alpine lake in Switzerland. Today’s spa-goers need not cross the pond for such an indulgence, however, as one of the Clinique La Prairie’s most exemplary facilities — La Prairie Spa at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman — sits on a swath of decidedly different shoreline in the not-so-distant Cayman Islands. Just a 90-minute flight from Miami, this 20,000-square-foot spa occupies a prime spot on famed Seven Mile Beach, and with its foundation of cellular-level, restorative skincare products, it also boasts one of the finest treatment menus in all of the Caribbean.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Situated on the most populous of the Cayman archipelago’s three islands, La Prairie Spa is the centerpiece of one of the region’s most luxurious properties, The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman.
  • Designed by architectural firm D’Aquino Monaco, the ample space features quartz, faceted glass and capiz-like elements, accented by silver and white walls and deliberate spotlighting, all lending to a sensation of falling water and lapping pools throughout.
  • While the tropical sanctuary offers all the desired treatments of a full-service facility — including deep tissue, hot stone and aromatherapy massages — a trip to this La Prairie sanctuary would be incomplete without a skincare service featuring the Swiss brand’s exceptional cellular, anti-aging serums and creams.
  • The resort’s pièce de résistance is the dazzling spa, affording restorative European treatments to guests and islanders alike.
  • In a nod to its Swiss heritage, La Prairie Spa draws inspiration from the healing powers of water, and it’s evident in more than its hydrotherapy treatments.
Things to Know
  • Whatever your pleasure, arrive early to relax in the Silver Haven reflection room before your services, and carve out time to enjoy the Jacuzzi and other spa amenities during your visit.
  • Avoid cancellation fees by giving the spa a head up at least 6 hours before your scheduled treatment.
  • For your convenience, a gratuity of 20 percent is automatically included in your bill.
  • While you must be 18 years old for complete access to the spa and its glorious amenities, 16- and 17-year-olds can request a facial.
  • Guests of all ages are allowed in the accommodating salon.
The Treatments
  • The best of its packages afford both indulgences together, such as the Caviar Luxury, a blissful two-hour-30-minute experience blending a Caviar massage and a 90-minute Caviar Firming Facial.
  • The jet-lagged can opt for the slightly more abridged Travel Therapy, featuring a 60-minute massage of your preference coupled with a 60-minute signature facial.
  • For those wishing to spend the better part of the afternoon in post-beach bliss, try the Total Escape, which marries a massage, a facial, and La Prairie’s pampering manicure and pedicure service to finish it off.
The Facilities
  • Filled with state-of-the-art circuit training equipment, you may find yourself spending as much time in the fitness center as you will in the spa’s treatment room. 
  • Also in the locker room are the wet areas. We recommend loosening your muscles in the whirlpool, steam room and sauna before your treatment for total bliss.
  • Even the locker rooms, whose wood walls are covered with carved polyester lacquer, mimic water-carved rocks.
  • With soaring ceilings and furnishings cloaked in a muted, cream-on-white palette, each of the treatment rooms and relaxation areas recalls La Prairie’s Alpine glacial roots, feeling at once expansive and yet, somehow, deliciously private.
