About Cobalt Coast Resort and Reef Divers
The Cobalt Coast Resort has been in operation since 2000 and in this time generated a loyal customer base of dedicated divers and sun worshippers alike. One dive holiday to this superb Caymans resort and you will be hooked too! The beautiful azure waters are ideal for all experience levels, the atmosphere relaxed and at the end of the day how better to relax than with a Cobalt cocktail in your hands.
The Cobalt Coast prides itself on the warmest of welcomes in Grand Cayman. The hotel sits right on the beach front, nestled on the tranquil shore of Boatswain's Bay (just a few miles from Seven Mile Beach). It has an intimate feeling with only 18 rooms across the whole resort but these are available in a range of sizes to suit. There are 1 and 2 bedroom suites, fully equipped with a small kitchenette. The oceanfront rooms are a more conventional hotel style but popular choices for those who want to be close to the pool. Fancy treating yourself? Why not opt for the penthouse Mermaid Suite. This has its own private entrance and the best views in the house overlooking the Caribbean Sea as well as oodles of space to enjoy.
Whilst diving is the most popular pastime here it is not the only thing on offer. Visit the turtle farm to discover more about the local green turtles and efforts to tag, monitor and protect their population. Grab a bargain with the plentiful duty free shopping. Or try your hand at the many water sports on offer. The Duppies restaurant is the social hub and serves delicious freshly prepared meals. There is never a dull day here!
