Sunset House Announces Change in Management

Family owners to replace Karin and Keith Sahm



Karin and Keith Sahm will retire as co-general managers of Grand Cayman's Sunset House dive resort on Aug. 31, 2017. Keith, who has worked for the company as general manager and director of marketing and advertising since 1997, will continue working for the resort from abroad in a marketing position, working industry trade shows and maintaining advertising commitments. He will also concentrate on Force Blue Inc., the 501©3 nonprofit organization that he helped co-found in 2015.

"We have enjoyed the friendships and business relationships, and we appreciate your trust over the years," the Sahms said. "Over the past few months, the family, Anne Briggs and Lisa Evans, have taken over the reins during this transition period and have begun remodeling the resort. We wish them the best of luck and are happy to see the well-known resort continue." (The Sahms' beloved dog, Murphy, will be going stateside with them.)

Sunset House, which will enter its 60th year next year, will continue its standard of great customer service for the new and avid diver. Renovations are in the works, with some of the resort's oldest buildings coming down to make way for an updated feel while maintaining the charm of this family-owned resort. Kim Pisano in reservations and Emma-Jane Fisher will still be in the front office to take care of reservations and to see to your every need.

"Both Emma-Jane and Keith will be at the DEMA Show in Orlando, Fla., Nov. 1-4, 2017, to update all on the renovations and direction of the resort and its award-winning dive operation, Sunset Divers," Karin said. "Both the resort and dive operation won top honors in the Scuba Diving Magazine Readers Top 101 survey."

About Sunset House
Sunset House/Sunset Divers has been welcoming divers to the Cayman Islands for more than 59 years. It is the only resort in the Cayman Islands that is designed by divers, operated by divers, for divers. It's also the only resort on Grand Cayman that has its own coral reef, with modern and ancient shipwrecks in shallow water right offshore. Underwater visibility on Sunset House's reef can exceed 200 feet, and a remarkable variety of marine life can be seen there. Our own spectacular 9-foot bronze sculpture of the mermaid Amphitrite is one of the most popular shore-dive sites in the world along with its successful coral farm.

The resort features 34 guest rooms, including 16 deluxe ocean-view rooms, two spacious suites and two apartments with full kitchenettes. All rooms are air-conditioned with no resort fees! Complimentary high-speed wireless Internet can be accessed throughout the property, and a convenient computer station is located in the lobby. SeaHarvest restaurant offers full menus for some of the healthiest breakfasts, lunches and dinners around and is famous for its East Indian menu. My Bar, a popular hangout for both locals and visitors, has been voted "Best in the Caribbean" by Caribbean Travel and Life and the Best of Cayman. Sunset House also features an inviting seaside freshwater swimming pool. For information or reservations, call toll-free (800) 854-4767 or 345-949-7111 on Grand Cayman. Web: sunsethouse.com
