- THE WESTIN GRAND CAYMAN SEVEN MILE BEACH RESORT, CAYMAN ISLANDS
Don't forget to turn on your out-of-office reply before you ditch your cubicle this winter. As a matter of fact, let Westin Grand Cayman's new Out of Office Generator create an amusing automated email reply FOR you! The Out of Office Generator is Westin's way of encouraging travelers to take that much-needed re-energizing escape, and where better to do just that than the Grand Cayman? Clear your head while doing Stand-Up Paddleboard (SUP) yoga, snorkeling in crystal-clear water among pristine reefs, sandbars, shipwrecks, and dramatic “wall-dives,” or swimming along stingrays at local attraction Stingray City. After a day of activity, indulge in a Lomi Lomi “Cayman Style” massage or Moor Mud Body Wrap at the Hibiscus Spa. After soaking in the sunset on the beach with cocktails, taste Executive Chef Sandy Tuason's coastal cuisine at Beach House. The office will be there when you get back.
