Occupying 1,100 feet of prime oceanfront real estate on Turks and Caicos’s award-winning shoreline, Grace Bay Club is where the upper crust trades wingtips and stilettos for barefoot beach luxury. And with 11 acres to spread out over, honeymooning couples and rambunctious families all have space to call their own. The relaxation begins upon arrival, where guests are greeted with cold lemongrass towels in the handsome lobby, revamped by celeb designer Thom Filicia. Originally opened in 1993 as a 21-room boutique property, the Grace Bay Club now encompasses seven buildings: the Hotel for guests 12 and over; the Villas, which has family-friendly suites; and the Estate, a resort-within-a-resort with home-size spreads. All the rooms exude a modish contemporary cool, curving around cabanas, firepits and pools, and spa-like bathrooms that have two-person deep soaking tubs and Elemis bath products. A free cell phone is issued at check-in so guests can contact their personal butler, available 24/7. Three pools (one for adults only and another with a six-seat swim-up bar) provide welcome relief from the sizzling sun, while nearby cushioned nooks are just the right place for an afternoon nap. After which you’ll be ready for the wide array of activities offered on-site. Perfect your serve on one of the two floodlit championship tennis courts, explore the island’s shops by bike, or go sea kayaking or stand-up paddleboarding – it’s all included. Too much exercise? Retreat to the intimate Anani Spa and indulge in a deep tissue muscle massage (alas, not free). Grill Rouge, the casual bistro, serves a free full spread buffet breakfast each morning that includes made-to-order omelets, crepes and French toast. Come nightfall, everyone congregates around the 90-foot Infiniti Bar for tapas and drinks (margarita, anyone?) before sitting down at the refined open-air Anacaona restaurant for Euro-Caribbean fare, such as chili oyster steamed local grouper.
In the Area
Swing your clubs at the Provo Golf Club, the only championship option in Turks and Caicos located just half a mile from Grace Bay. Or, cast your line while bone fishing, bottom and reef fishing, or deep sea fishing for Marlin, Mahi-Mahi and Wahoo – the resort’s concierge can book the trip and the chefs in the Grill Rouge will prepare your catch of the day. Families with children can opt for the resort’s Kids Town Program, which offers half and full day off-property excursions and a range of other activities like kayaking the local eco preserve, nature hikes, catamaran rides and snorkeling. For off-resort fine dining, head to Coco Bistro where fresh local cuisine is served alfresco under a canopy of swaying coconut palms.
How to Get There
I’ve been to many different places within the Caribbean but this one is the extremely perfection. it’s the paradise on earth.
Grace Bay Club is a luxury hotel in which you feel much comfortable welcoming than you can ever imagine.
I highly recommend this resort. I would choose it a thousand times.
I will make this short and sweet. My husband and I went to Turks and Caicos to celebrate our 30th anniversary. It was our first time to this island. The Grace Bay Club lives up to its reputation. Everything from staff, accommodations, food were amazing. It is truly one of the nicest vacations we ever took. Run, don’t walk!!
Amazing, Amazing, Amazing. The service is first class. Twice daily maid services. True concierge service checking in at least 2 times a day, arranging dinners and transportation. Ranald & Michael & Keith were all on the top of their game. 3 couples traveled here for a 50th birthday celebration. We were originally booked in the main resort but were upgraded to the villa. WOW. Private pool. Beach front. Every thing you need for a week away. Worth every dollar. Not cheap but why would you cheap out.
We learned of Grace Bay from a friend. Lovely spacious villas (we had a 2 bedroom) with several pools (family and adult), on the beach at Grace Bay, restaurants and bars. Staff very helpful in planning activities at the resort and on the rest of the island. Extensive breakfast included, daily activities for adults and kids and wonderful views of the ocean.
This is first-class all the way. Superb accommodations, wonderful staff. Couldn't get enough of the magnificent beach and turquoise waters. Food and drink staff for the beach also top knotch. Every room has its own concierge. Ask for Godfrey. Breakfast has so many choices and the staff, especially Elmina, most gracious. Only improvement I'd suggest is broader dinner menu if you don't particularly like fish and food quality should have been better.
