With a guest-to-staff ra­tio of nearly oneto- one, the South­ern Cross Club on the is­land of Lit­tle Cay­man de­liv­ers an in­ti­mate, de­tail- ori­ented ex­pe­ri­ence like none other in the Caribbean, and pos­si­bly even the en­tire blue planet. Which is per­haps why it’s not sur­pris­ing that 67 per­cent of guests to this 14-room re­sort on the south­west por­tion of the is­land are re­peat vis­i­tors.

The at­ten­tion to de­tail plays out in the lit­tle touches, from stock­ing your fa­vorite brand of whiskey at the bar to or­der­ing a case of your pre­ferred wine. Guests wear­ing dif­fer­ent sizes aren’t sur­prised when the bou­tique has cloth­ing that fits them. At the on­site dive cen­ter, that level of ser­vice means that guests who need a lit­tle ex­tra help don’t have to ask for it. Divers trav­el­ing solo who wish to snorkel or add an ex­tra dive are joined by a mem­ber of the dive team.

And the div­ing speaks for it­self: Lit­tle Cay­man is home to one of the Caribbean’s most fa­mous walls, found within Bloody Bay Ma­rine Park. Start­ing at about 20 feet and plum­met­ing down to 6,000 feet, with vi­brant sponges, corals and fish life along the way, Bloody Bay Wall is some­thing to be­hold. Here, vis­i­bil­ity is com­monly 100 feet or greater, and meet­ings with Nas­sau grouper and green tur­tles are ev­ery­day oc­cur­rences.

It all adds up to a va­ca­tion that doesn’t feel like just an­other re­sort stay, but rather, a get­away spent among friends.
