Unlocking the secret of luxury living

Secret Harbour at The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman – new secrets unfold.

Phase Two of Secret Harbour – the latest project by Michael Ryan, developer and owner of The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman, voted the #1 Resort in the region two years in a row – has just been launched, and is centered on taking the standards of living to new levels.

Envisioned as a one-of-a-kind waterfront community incorporating elements of harbour villages around the world, Secret Harbour offers a way of life previously unimagined in the Cayman Islands – at a price point that makes the good life more accessible than ever before.

Responding to market demand for a greater variety of homes in the community, Secret Harbour’s design team repurposed Phase Two to offer more of what buyers desired. As a result, several new floorplans now augment the overall mix of residence styles in the community.

Benefits for buyers are two-fold: additional choice and lower introductory pricing that, when combined, offer ownership opportunities starting at US$499,000 with more than 40 homes offered at less than US$1 Million.

“This new release provides individuals interested in the ultimate in luxury harbour-village living with the opportunity to be part of all that Dragon Bay and The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, has to offer,” said Ryan.

With over 44 different floor plans, Secret Harbour offers tailored living opportunities, specific to each owner’s lifestyle and tastes. Plans range from one-bedroom to three bedroom Residences, Harbour Lofts, Skyhouses and Bridge Residences – all surrounded by the waterways and golf course with expansive views of the North Sound.

Backed by the development team that has brought the entire sea-to-sea community at The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman to life, Secret Harbour includes the same quality and attention to detail that has made the Resort and the Residences the gold standard for the region.

 “Much thought has gone into providing every convenience for contemporary luxury living in beautiful surroundings. Secret Harbour offers everything you need and more than you could ever want,” said project director Lisa Sloley. “The services and amenities right on your doorstep at Secret Harbour will be unparalleled and second to none. “Secret Harbour owners and their guests will experience an easy, carefree lifestyle in their own vibrant neighbourhood complete with every creature comfort.

Secret Harbour is surrounded by water and ringed by a wide promenade designed for casual walks around the harbour, alfresco dining, relaxing with friends and spending time with family members boating around the Resort and the North Sound.

The anchor of the Secret Harbour community is the exclusive clubhouse – rising two floors from the waterfront promenade, the clubhouse will provide breathtaking views of the surrounding water-based community extending out to the North Sound and will boast all of the amenities and conveniences that any home owner could desire.

The infinity-edge swimming pool, wine bar, gourmet café and digital screening room, together with a state of the art fitness center, yoga room and private La Prairie spa suites, make the clubhouse the social and recreational center of the community. 

For the younger members of the family, there is a designated children’s area, while their parents can enjoy the breathtaking views from the roof top terrace. Other gathering areas include the clubhouse infinity pool and lounge, the exclusive roof top terrace, the private Secret Harbour beach, and cabanas perfect for parties and entertaining. 

This social heart of the community will be surrounded by glistening waterways and lush landscaping dotted with hammocks and gazebos – offering ample opportunity for secluded relaxation.

And should residents want to venture away from their private harbour oasis, a water ferry service will make transport to nearby amenities an enjoyable breeze.

Combine these on-site benefits with full access to The Ritz-Carlton Grand Cayman, and you have luxury living at its finest.

Secret Harbour residents will golf on a Greg Norman-designed golf course, dine at Blue by celebrity Chef Eric Ripert, enjoy tennis by Nick Bollettieri,
learn about the natural world with Ambassadors of the Environment by Jean-Michel Cousteau, and relax and be indulged at Silver Rain – a La Prairie Spa.
Beyond the unmatched lifestyle offered at Secret Harbour, the new development has been planned as a solid venture.

“We are a sound investment, as we are the best that is out there,” Ryan said. “We have won awards as the best Resort in the region two years in a row; and our products and values have maintained themselves and moved up. I say to potential buyers ‘Come and see why there is no comparison’. Now is your chance to be a part of the #1 Resort with a product starting under $500,000.”

In terms of return on investment, other luxury projects on Seven Mile Beach in Grand Cayman have enjoyed annual increases in the selling price over the last twenty-five years, however, as Ryan notes, other developments do not offer the same caché.

He said, “We have the best grouping of unique amenities and services that no one else has. There is no comparison – we have an unfair advantage and we just keep getting better.”

Beyond the investment value, spectacular spaces, location and services are what really set Secret Harbour apart.

Blending classic design, a legendary high-end brand, and a highly livable and enjoyable atmosphere within the community itself, Secret Harbour offers an interesting juxtaposition of design, attitudes, and lifestyles – simultaneously old-world and modern, active and serene.

“Places like Secret Harbour only come along once in a very great while. We’ve carefully crafted this community, and I have no doubt that the exceptional design, legendary service levels, and inherent value will resonate,” Ryan said. 

He added, “With the exceptional launch-pricing of Phase Two, along with the tremendous interest in Secret Harbour so far, I expect that these homes won’t remain on the market long.”
