Southern Cross Club
With world- class diving in close reach and top- notch customer service, this Little Cayman resort delivers
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.
