“A peaceful and luxurious experience that exceeded our expectaions in every way”

I recently spent a week in the Le Soliel d'Or cottage with my husband and two-year-old daughter and can not wait to return. It was the perfect place to spend time together as a family. The cottage was clean, secure, and luxuriously furnished. Our every need was anticipated in advance of our arrival and we were especially grateful for the specific attention paid to ensure the comfort of our young daughter. The grounds were beautifully maintained and the pool was situated with stunning ocean views. Although we were able to spend the week in complete privacy, our hosts were only moments away and were highly responsive to every inquiry and request. We could not have asked for more thoughtful and accommodating hosts. We were very impressed by the farm and enjoyed being able to see where the majority our food was grown.

“A truly unique luxury farm-to-table vacation ”
Reviewed 8 December 2015 for a stay in December 2015

people found this review helpful

I just returned from a stay in the "Cottage" at Le Soleil d'Or. I feel like I'm now returning from heaven. What a unique and fabulous experience. I was able to tour the rest of the property during my stay as well.

Service-
I was greeted warmly at the airport by Niels and Mark who assisted me throughout the duration of my stay. I cannot say enough about how kind and warm the staff is. Every staff member I ran into went out of their way to greet me and ask how my stay was going. The staff that gave me the incredible tour of the 20 acre garden and farm were extremely knowledgable and full of interesting facts. You can tell that the entire staff truly enjoyed making the guests happy. They are born to be in hospitality.

Accommodations-
Currently there are three separate buildings for accommodations.

The Main House has four beautiful suites with huge balconies and oversized marble bathrooms. The tubs are out of this world!They look like something from Architectural Digest. The main house is covered in blooming magenta bougainvillea and has an additional shared living space/lobby. The building has a luxe bed and breakfast vibe. It is convent to the pool, restaurant, culinary demonstration gazebo, and access up to the garden (which is up steep steps built into the limestone). The staff will drive anyone up to the garden if they are not good with steps.

The studio cottage is pretty much it's own villa, across the street from the main house. The cottage has wonderful privacy. The great room has a sleeper sofa, fully equipped kitchen and nice bed. There is a separate hallway that leads to the bathroom, and the service closet (which has a washer and dryer). The view from the great room looks right onto the private pool patio and onto the ocean. There are lovely hammock cabanas and poolside furniture. It's breathtaking. Perfect for a couple looking for privacy and a real getaway.

Finally, there is a three bedroom villa which is down the street from the other buildings. This villa is fabulous for families or a group of friends. PlayStation for the kids in the upstairs "tv room" and a lovely relaxing living room for the adults downstairs. There is another great pool and bbq area that is totally private. You look left and right out by the pool and can see for miles (all the way to the highest point of the Bluff) and you won't see a single soul.

Garden-
The tour of the 20 acre garden was the highlight of my trip. It is incredible how they turned rocky, sinkhole ridden land into a magnificent and productive farm. They had almost every type of citrus available, fruits I've never even heard of (they were delicious), and even olive trees! You can have lunch under the arbor, or gaze at the view of the sea from a beautiful wedding area.

Dining-
What an amazing culinary experience it was to dine here. Farm to Table at its best!
The quality of the food was impeccable. You can definitely taste how fresh everything is. The presentation was gorgeous. Everything down to the floral arrangements on the table came from a 1 mile radius. The chef, Joe, really knows what she is doing. I had two meals in the restaurant by the main house, and then opted for the rest of my meals poolside at the cottage. Mark was over to dress the table and set up the meals right on time.

The fridge in the cottage was stocked with waters, sodas, fresh infused water, fresh wild cherry juice, and sour calamandia (sp?) juice. There was fresh yogurt, homemade breads and cookies, and delicious homemade white cheese. They also make tantalizing jams, jellies, and oils which are in a basket in the kitchen.

The Beach-
You should be aware that Cayman Brac has a typically rocky shore line so the cottage and villa do not have comfortable swim access. But, Le Soleil d'Or's beach club is very luxurious, sandy, and comfortable. A truly great beach experience. They have cabanas by the water (with electric outlets for charging/music). There is a beautiful 5-star pool. And best of all, they are building a kitchen and restaurant right there.

I can't say enough about how unique and authentic this experience is. If you're looking to celebrate something special, have an out-of-the-box vacation, or propose to your loved one... here is your spot. It's a the ultimate getaway. Perfect for anyone look for privacy, relaxation, peace and quiet, and incredible fresh food.

My husband and I travel 6 times a year on average, and when we stay in resorts we always pick the top end. Le Soleil is without a doubt the most beautiful and peaceful place we have ever stayed!! The scenery was absolutely gorgeous, the service impeccable, and the food deliciously inimitable!! Arlene is an exceptional chef and Renee could not have been more kind or accommodating. I would recommend this resort above any other on the planet!!!

“A magical experience!”
Reviewed 21 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

We visited with our 5 year old. The cottage is beautiful, has its own pool and is very secluded. The cooking is delicious and worth taking advantage of at every opportunity... we have only one suggestion.....you must rent a little car to travel around the island ...the cottage is remote which is part of its charm! This is a very special place!

The ambiance,the staff, the food were just incredible. Great place to rest. One week is just enough.
The location on the beach was breathtaking and we dined on the beach several evenings.
Food was cooked any way you want it. The staff was 2nd to none in just how they meet our needs.
We are very particular New Yorkers but this place was truly exceptional.

“Memorable Christmas week at the Cottage exceeded our expectations!”
Reviewed 5 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Our 2 daughters, ages 17 and 23, my husband and I spent 7 days exploring the Brac, relaxing poolside and enjoying ALL of the perks of Le Soleil d'Or. The entire week exceeded our expectations - the Golden Sun team pampered our every need; fresh and unbelievalbe meals prepared by Jo, fitness sessions along the beach with Courtney in the am, then returning in the afternoon for massages, and having pedicures by the pool. Rene provided bikes, snorkel gear and suggestions of where to go. The Team's hospitality, attention to detail, and first class approach provide access to resort-type services while enjoying the privacy of your own pool and extensive beachfront. Everything we could have wanted was available at our fingertips OR we could just relax by the pool. It was important to have a car rental - in spite of the island being only 12 miles by 1.5 -- we put over 125 miles in 7 days finding caves, driving to the Lighthouse, and going to the grocery store. We enjoyed the rustic and remote feel of the island as it provided the perfect place for our family to be together and reconnect. We hope to make it back to the Brac and to stay again with Le Soleil d'Or -- the owner of the property is inspiring and has an amazing vision for creating a special place for people to enjoy. Thank you!

“Amazing getaway”
Reviewed 5 November 2014 for a stay in October 2014

When we booked Le Soleil d'Or, we had no clue where cayman brac was or where we were going. When we arrived, we knew this was for us! We were greeted at the cottage with fresh juice, home made puff pastry and egg rolls, and home made charcuterie. It was such a nice warm welcome. The cottage has everything one could possibly want. The kitchen is fully stocked (waffle maker, kitchen aid, pots, pans, cutting boards, everything! I can't even list it all).
The private pool and gazebo is the best part. It was really great to relax and lounge by our own private pool.
Chef Jo and Arlene provided us lunch and dinner every day, everything they made was delicious- tuna, lobster, chicken, steak, lamb. And the desserts!!!
Emily, our own personal concierge was wonderful. We wanted to do some island exploring and she was always able and willing to take us anywhere we wanted to go. We went snorkeling, sightseeing, to random stores, and she was always happy to come exploring with us.
Overall, this is the perfect place for anyone that wants to unplug and unwind. This is not for those that need evening entertainment. The island is very quiet and small. We were able to bike from the cottage to either end with no problems.
Will definitely be back. Thank you!!
