Cayman wellness finds its way into December's Cosmo
‘Fun fact, it’s pronounced “Cay-mahn,” not “Cay-man”’ reads a recent article about the Cayman Islands written by Jillian Sellers in Cosmopolitan magazine.
The piece, which was inspired by the author’s recent experience at the Cayman Rejuvenate wellness retreat hosted by The Ritz-Carlton, Grand Cayman, also highlights Cayman attractions such as Camana Bay and Stingray City.
“If you’re in Grand Cayman, you absolutely must swim with sting rays. I repeat: Swim. With. Stingrays. Do not pass Go, do not collect $200,” Sellers advises Cosmo readers.
The Rejuvenate event was a part of The Department of Tourism’s annual “Fall Only in Cayman” promotion. This year, Cayman’s focus is on wellness and healthy living and is in keeping with the upsurge in wellness tourism in the Caribbean and throughout the world.
According to the Global Wellness Institute, the global wellness market is valued at $4.2 trillion, an increase of 12.8% from $3.7 trillion in 2015, and a recent survey produced by Allianz life shows that 51% of people say health and wellness is their top focus area, compared with 27% who say they are focusing on financial stability.
Cayman’s wellness offering has been highlighted across a number of publications of late, with a November piece in the National Post claiming that “If you’re looking to refresh and indulge, you’ve come to the right place. There is no shortage of spa and wellness retreats in Cayman, each offering a variety of specialty treatments to lower your stress level and raise your “ahhh” level.”
Said the Cosmo author of her experience, “it’s been a little bit since I’ve gotten back home, and I may still be going through withdrawals from this amazing place.”
