My Favorite Things

As the creative director of Grand Cayman’s Palm Heights, Gabriella Khalil has played a part in everything from the hotel’s Instagram-famous striped umbrellas and the Mario Bellini and Marcel Breuer accents found throughout each of the 52 suites to the curation of products on offer in the soon-to-open boutique. Here, Khalil shares her choice discoveries for days both at home and on Caribbean escapes

Summerill & Bishop


Set of Four Striped Linen Napkins

“I have always adored Summerill & Bishop’s tablecloths and linens, which have been the backdrop for most holiday tables at my home. They are beautiful and classic with a twist and great to use for a special dinner.”


From $38.00

Non-Alcoholic Apéritif

“I entertain often, and although I love having a cocktail, lately I have been leaning toward non-alcoholic drinks. I’ve been a huge fan of drinking Ghia. It is even in all of the mini bars at Palm Heights.”



Gisele Stretch-Modal Pajama Set

“These pajamas are incredibly soft. I wear them nightly, along with my 6-year-old who loves them equally as much. One of my favorites for adults and children.”

Irving Penn


Passage: A Work Record

“The most beautiful coffee table book and my favorite one in my living room.”

Port Tanger


Baraka Tortoiseshell Acetate Sunglasses

“I love to have fun with accessories, especially sunglasses. Port Tanger is one of my favorite brands. Their glasses are chic and statement-making without being over the top.”

Charlotte Mensah


Manketti Oil Shampoo

“My daughter has very long textured hair, like mine. A friend gifted her oil from Charlotte Mensah, whose beautiful organic products are focused on afro, mixed, and curly textures. Now, they are a staple in our bathroom.”

Super Smalls


Red Carpet Mega Set

“My daughter enjoys every single item from Super Smalls, which is an incredible brand for kids. I go to Super Smalls most of the time for gifting.”

Costa Brazil


Aroma 1 Jungle Eau de Parfum

“This is my number one go-to fragrance. I love it and receive a ton of compliments every time I have it on. My husband wears it too, so it is now a family fragrance.”



Crocheted Striped Cotton Short-Sleeved Shirt

“I have been wearing Bode button-down shirts for a long time, especially in warm weather. It is the details that make such a difference for me.”

Dinosaur Designs


Wildflower Large Marbled-Resin Vase

“I am crazy for Dinosaur Designs’s sculptural shapes and tonal palette. I have many of their pieces in my kitchen and around my home. I recently added them to the spa at Palm Heights because of their organic nature.”
