For Kinship 2018: A Year To Get Consciously Cozy, we are going back to the basics. We are creating magic in the ordinary. We are taking pleasure in the small things in life and aspiring to make everyday tasks more dignified, joyful and beautiful. And this is a culture that we want to impart to our guests. We thought the word ‘kinship’ fits well with the theme because it represents community and one’s family, friends and loved ones – and that is exactly who we want to be share these special moments with.
We welcome you to experience our way of life and embrace our CaymanKind-inspired lifestyle. For the next few blog posts, we will be exploring what we believe are the Five Secrets to everyday happy living.
These Secrets have been inspired by what we feel are the five universal themes of our local kindness: Find Tranquility, Create Abundance, Treasure Togetherness, Embrace Comfort and Choose Kindness and Positivity.
For our Third Secret, we are treasuring togetherness. We enjoy doing things that we love surrounded by the people we love. To us, treasuring togetherness is like hugging without touching. Activities that we offer to help guests enjoy the company of family and friends include Family Game Night by the pool, our signature Beach Bonfires under the Caribbean night sky with S’mores and our Boulangerie Brunch, where guests can enjoy a relaxed and cozy atmosphere while enjoying fabulous food and drinks.
In our pursuit of this Secret to Every Happy Living, we were captivated by the following quotes on treasuring togetherness. We hope they inspire you to gather your loved ones and collect memories.
“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality.” – Yoko Ono
“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” – Vincent Van Gogh
“Love does not consist in gazing at each other, but in looking outward together in the same direction.” – Antoine de Saint-Exupery
“Within each of us there is an intense need to feel that we belong. This feeling of unity and togetherness comes through the warmth of a smile, a handshake, or a hug, through laughter and unspoken demonstrations of love. It comes in the quiet, reverent moments of soft conversations and in listening.” – William R. Bradford
“But let there be spaces in your togetherness and let the winds of the heavens dance between you. Love one another but make not a bond of love: let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of our souls. – Khalil Gibran
