When you book one of the luxury villas in this collection, you'll get the flexibility to choose when and how often you would like a private chef to prepare your meals.
Whether you need a full-time chef or just someone to come in for a particular day or two, WIMCO's concierge staff can make the necessary arrangements.
These villas boast large, modern kitchens that are fully equipped with everything a chef would need to prepare delicious meals for your group.
Private chefs are paid a set rate of between $75 and $150 an hour.
In most cases, you will need to hire a chef for approximately six hours, which is the time needed to complete the shopping, prep work, cooking, and cleaning after your meal.
The food and beverages for your meals are always an additional cost.
Private chefs can book up quickly, especially during the high season. So, we recommend booking a private chef for your villa early. In addition, all chefs set minimum requirements during the holiday season regarding the number of meals or days you must book in order to retain their services.
What Can You Expect From Your Private Chef?
Your Grand Cayman private chef is there to turn your culinary dreams into reality. First, your chef will learn more about your vision for your meals.
They will ask you about your budget and your likes, dislikes, and any dietary restrictions your group may have. Your chef will then be responsible for the following:
Planning out the menus for your review
Shopping for all the ingredients and beverages for your meals
Discussing with you whether you will need additional staff to help with service during your meal or event
Setting the table
Preparing and serving the meal
Clearing the table
Washing all the dishes
Cleaning the counters, stove, and workspaces.

Frequently Asked Questions About Villas with Chef & Staff in Grand Cayman
Is food and beverage included in the price?
The food and beverage cost is not included. Before your stay, you and your chef will discuss menu ideas and your budget. Your chef will then request a deposit to cover the cost of the ingredients for your first few meals. During your stay, your chef will bill you as more shopping is done, and there may also be a final settlement payment.
Can I reserve a chef only for certain meals, or do I have to book a chef for all meals?
In most cases, chefs can be reserved on an as-needed basis. The exception is the busy holiday period. Most chefs will only accept reservations for a full day or week of service during this time.
Are there any villas in Grand Cayman with chef service included?
At present, there are no villas in Grand Cayman where the services of a private chef are included in the price of the rental, but don't worry; WIMCO can arrange a private chef to cater during your stay at an additional cost.
What is the difference between a private chef and a villa cook?
Both our private chefs and villa cooks are talented professionals who can create exceptional dishes using locally sourced ingredients.
The main difference is that personal chefs have been formally trained and have either worked in a fine-dining restaurant and/or have their catering businesses. A private chef will use their training to create beautifully plated, gourmet dishes for your group.
Villa cooks typically do not have formal training, but they have many years of experience working in local restaurants and/or cooking for local families. Villa cooks typically serve their dishes family-style.
