Cayman Islands-based Rum Point Investment Ltd. will take over management of Rum Point, a beach and restaurant attraction on North Sound, Grand Cayman, on Nov. 1, according to Adrien Briggs, co-owner of the attraction.

Until recently, Rum Point had been managed by Hyatt Hotels since 1995.

Most of the 20 Hyatt staff members working at the Rum Point location have opted to remain at Rum Point under the new management.

Diego Concha, general manager of the Hyatt Regency Beach Suites, said the Rum Point staff were given the option to remain at Rum Point under new management, return to work at the Hyatt or choose to go elsewhere.

No major changes to Rum Point are anticipated under the new management, according to Briggs.

Management and owners hope to reopen the Rum Point restaurant for the winter season. The restaurant has been out of commission since Hurricane Ivan struck Grand Cayman in September 2004.

However, the ferry service across North Sound, connecting Rum Point with the Hyatt property, also a victim of Ivan, is not expected to reopen.

Red Sail Sports will remain operating at the property.

The resort is a popular daytime spot for residents and tourists to hang out in lounge chairs or hammocks, dine and drink at the Wreck Bar & Grill, and sign up for watersports activities offered by Red Sail Sports.
