Change is Good: From Treasure Island to Sunset Cove

One of the most popular properties of Cayman Condos is about to undergo a very exciting change. Treasure Island Condominiums are excited to announce they will be changing their name to Sunset Cove. Once the beach restoration project was complete in the Fall of 2010, the name change made sense. With the beautiful cove finished, there is no better sunset setting on the entire island. The beach in front of the condos becomes a popular gathering place during Happy Hour because everyone wants to enjoy the breathtaking sunset. Because of this, the owners of the Treasure Island Condos decided that the name change would reflect the property in a more accurate away.

In addition, there had been much confusion among guests due to the hotel being named Treasure Island as well. Despite sharing the same property for years, the Treasure Island Hotel and Treasure Island Condominiums are completely independent of each other with different owners and management teams. The timing seemed right to create an identity that our guests can relate to.

So effective immediately, the condos formerly known as Treasure Island Condominiums will now be called Sunset Cove. For our long time guests, this may take some getting used to, but we are confident that with time, Sunset Cove will be one of the most recognizable names on the island. After all, what better spot to take in a gorgeous sunset than at Sunset Cove?

Experience the Deep Sea

The-atlantis-submarine

There are many great snorkel and dive spots in the Cayman Islands to experience the corals, colors, and fish of the Caribbean Sea. However, you can't get to 100 feet deep with a simple mask and snorkel. The Atlantis Submarine in Grand Cayman can get you to depths of the sea that you will never see with from the surface. The Atlantis XI is an advanced submarine that can allow passengers the opportunity to brilliant sea life from 100 feet deep.

This submarine was specially designed for underwater sightseeing excursions, led by knowledgable marine guides who provide information during the entire trip. The submarine is comfortable for passengers as it is air-conditioned and maintained at sea level pressure, so there is no effect on your ears.

The submarine was developed in Australia and features large, clear windows optimal for viewing the spectacular sights of the sea, with numerous photo opportunities. There is even a moment when a trained diver enters the water and begins feeding thousands of colorful fish right outside the windows.

You will be blown away by the amazing clarity of the water as well as the colors of the coral and fish. During the 90 minute trip passengers often experience sea turtles, corals, shark, eel, and stingrays. Oh and if you feel like you've seen all these things before, but are too scared to snorkel or dive after dark, the Atlantis offers night tours too, which gives you an entire different perspective of night life, when you see shrimp, lobsters, and other night time sea creatures come alive.

Next time you are in Grand Cayman, make sure to make a visit to the Atlantis Submarine for some breathtaking views that you will remember forever. To book your submarine tour for $79, you can visit this website:

Unfortunately, I don't have any under-water photos of the submarine to post here, but if you visit the website above or do a simple google image search, you will see plenty of great photographs to give you an idea of what this trip is all about.

Good Karma

The Cayman Islands have always been known for their vast dining options. With great seafood and wondeful people readily available on the island, most restuarants are great. However, a new restaurant recently opened up on the island, called Karma. This restaurant and lounge is located in the Westshore Centre on Seven Mile Beach. It offers a unique dining experience and features sustainable products. Most of what you eat at Karma was either grown right on the island or came from local fishermen.

Their menu features sushi, seafood, salads, noodle dishes, and steak. In addition to their excellent menu, they offer a wide variety of specials and events. From 4:00-7:00 on Mondays-Fridays they offer Cayman's hottest happy hour. This includes $5 Tappas, $3.50 Beers, $6 Wines, $4 Shots, $7 Martinis, and $5 Well Drinks. Wednesdays offer a Live DJ from 8:00-11:00 and $1 Oysters. Thursdays from 6:00-9:00 is an Asian-style outdoor BBQ, called "Karamaque", featuring baby back ribs. Friday nights in the lounge you can find all the hottest music with a live DJ from 8:30-12:30. Finally, on Saturdays you can get taken back in time with a live DJ playing hits from the 70's and 90's.

KARMA

Don't forget for dessert to order the homemade ice cream that they make right at your table by using liquid nitrogen, while mixing it for 3 minutes causing fog and steam to engulf your whole table. This is a unique dessert experience only found at Karma.

So the next time you visit Grand Cayman, don't hesitate to visit the hottest, newest Restaurant that Cayman has to offer. It might just give you some good Karma for your trip.
