The pioneer program features a team of dedicated, highly trained and certified Ladies and Gentlemen to oversee sanitizing and disinfecting procedures across all back-of-house and public areas of the resort. The sub-department is led by a head butler who is present in all critical guest touch points throughout the resort.

The team of certified butlers is a sub-unit of the resort’s Housekeeping department and the group of Ladies and Gentlemen have received certifications in the appropriate procedures.

Among their functions, the Sanitizing Butlers consistently audit public areas and back-of-house areas to ensure all processes are being implemented and that all Ladies and Gentlemen are following recommended guidelines, such as the use of a state-of-the-art temperature monitoring device upon entry into their shift, personal health protocols as well as new standards and procedures in their designated areas.

The Cayman Islands has implemented a phased border-reopening plan. As of January 20, 2022 Phase 5 began in the Cayman Islands, allowing all children arriving as travelers, to now take on the vaccination status of the adult they are travelling with, resulting in no need to quarantine for the majority of travelers.

 

Entry requirements as of January 20, 2022  for vaccinated travelers from US/Canada:

 

  • All incoming travelers age 5 and over must provide a negative result from a PCR or antigen-detecting rapid diagnostic test taken no earlier than the day before departure. Travelers under age 5 are not required to be tested.
  • Registration in Travel Cayman: Complete a Travel Declaration through the Travel Cayman Portal no less than five days prior to departing for the Island. Proof of vaccination may be uploaded there. Learn more at: https://www.exploregov.ky/travelcayman
  • Travellers age 5 and over who are not required to quarantine are to undergo a certified lateral flow test on Days 2, 5, and 7 (3 tests in total). For your convenience, these may be administered by a healthcare provider at our resort or our team may provide a list of vendors on island if you prefer to visit them at your leisure. Testing on site is included in our resort fee and will be of no additional cost to our guests.
  • For travelers required to complete a quarantine period, an Isolation in Luxury program is available at the Resort Tower of The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman during the transition period, with a nightly rate offered and daily meal plan with three presentations per day.
