      Resort Description

      Sunset House is located on a coastal road overlooking the Caribbean sea.

      The crystal clear waters around Grand Cayman Island offer year-round visibility, warm temperatures and miles of coral reef. Deep drop offs and wrecks create a home for spotted eagle rays, sea turtles and hundreds of colourful reef fish. 

      Sunset House is an intimate, “scuba diving friendly” family-owned hotel with only 36 rooms. Rooms are divided among five two-story, buildings, set against a jagged, rocky shoreline provided extensive diving opportunities to guests. The hotel is a 15 minute walk from George Town. An intimate, white sand beach is a short stroll away.

      Enjoy fantastic food at My Bar & Sea Harvest restaurant, a huge open-sided, thatch-roofed cabana overlooking the beautiful Caribbean and offering the largest outdoor bar in Grand Cayman. Winner of a 'Best of Caribbean' award, it's been a favourite among locals for 60 years.

      Explore diving around the Sunset House

      What to see

      Because of the incredible variety of underwater habitats to be found around the islands, there is a surprising amount of biodiversity to be found in the crystal clear waters. Carousing alongside huge brain corals and sea fans are countless colorful creatures like angelfish and octopi. There are many species of rays to be found in these waters, so keep an eye out for Electric rays, Yellow rays, and the massive Southern rays. Green sea turtles are popular attractions, as well, casually gliding through the blue.
