Published on : Saturday, November 16, 2019

The Cayman Islands tourism industry recently achieved a major milestone in the accommodations sector by significant growth of over 7,000 rooms licensed and available for visitors. This includes more than 1,000 new rooms added within the past three years alone, with the condominiums and villas categories grabbing 73% of this increase.

 

Now with 7,027 rooms available across the three-island nation–Grand Cayman has 6,646 rooms, followed by 220 in Cayman Brac and 161 in Little Cayman. The condos and villas category represents the majority share of accommodation types available now with 4,310 rooms versus 2,717 rooms in the hotel category.

 

“We have seen continued interest from the community to embrace entrepreneurship opportunities in tourism through homesharing, which accounts for 32.2% of the total rooms now available,” said Deputy Premier and Minister for Tourism, the Honourable Moses Kirkconnell.

 

As of 31 October 2019, there are currently 799 licensed properties representing 9,958 beds in total.

 

Ongoing aviation strategies led by the Ministry and Department will provide travelers with even greater access to the destination through new key hubs in North America and beyond with their preferred airlines. Maintaining and growing air access remains a top priority for making sure that the accommodations sector gets advantage from tourism, which is a key pillar of the economy.
