New Hotels in the Cayman Islands for 2024
Scheduled to open in Q2 2024 is Hotel Indigo Grand Cayman. The 282-room 10-storey beachfront property will provide an upper midscale experience featuring multiple restaurants, a 6,700 square foot ballroom, a pool deck and a rooftop bar. Indigo’s restaurants and bars around the world are known as a favourite destination for visitors and locals alike.

Hotel Indigo will use a geothermal/ice storage combination and will feature insulated glazing throughout to reduce energy consumption.
