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
We normally don’t write reviews when we travel, but feel that given the wonderful experience we have had at Grace Bay Club, we must share our thoughts.
From the moment we arrived and were greeted by the friendly staff (with rum punch of course!) our blood pressure dropped immediately.
The concierge staff (Franklyn and Vernon) have been truly amazing and helpful. We aren’t high maintenance, but with our family (18 month old), in-laws etc. and this being our first time to Turks, we certainly needed good recommendations and guidance of things to do.
The two things that have truly been amazing and really stick out are the private dinner the team at GBC helped arrange and our half day boat cruise.
Chef Joseph and TJ hosted the dinner in our room and it was the best meal we had on the whole island. I should note we also at at Coco Bistro and Seven, both which were very good, but not as good as dinner in our awesome room (they are even better than the online photos). Joseph helped us devise a menu and literally nailed exactly what we wanted! TJ his server and wingman helped us relax, kept our drinks filled and provided awesome conversation all night. TJ also had to play photographer a few times for us, which was greatly appreciated.
The team at GBC also helped us arrange a half day private charter with island vibes, which was perfect. Our captain Deleon and his mate Lex took us snorkeling, to a private beach, swimming and even demonstrated how to prepare conch.
All in all, this is been an amazing trip and a place we will come to with our family for years to come! If you’re considering a trip to Turks, come to Grace Bay Club.
I went to Turks and Caicos for a girls weekend and we originally booked another beach front property. It was lovely however it was underwhelming to say the least. We requested to leave the property and booked Grace Bay immediately. Transportation picked us up and we were greeted by the most hospitable staff!’ Eucalyptus towels, rum punch and the most gracious staff. We had our own personal conceierge with a cell phone to reach him at anytime throughout our stay. The property was breathtaking!!! The suite was beyond words and the view was magnificent! Breakfast was included and offered a lovely selection. The pools were pristine as well as the property. The entire staff went above and beyond with every interaction we had. The manager personally greeted us as well and was more than gracious and provided with several upgrades throughout our time there. The property and staff is FIVE STAR all the way. We toured another property while we were there looking for our next visit. I will ONLY stay at Grace Bay Beach Resort for my future visits. I highly recommend this property. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
My Husband and I returned home from a 5 day 4 night trip the last week in August of 2018. TCI has been on our bucket list for 15 years and once we heard Southwest flies here, we knew it was time to go. After we booked our Flights and Hotel through Southwest we received an email in regards to our Roundtrip Transfer Taxi Shuttle through Grace Bay Club. When we arrived at the Airport, most all the Tourist had done the same thing. It is worth the additional charge to add to your Hotel Bill. We stayed on the 3rd floor in the Estate section with amazing views. In our room, we have a Safe, Coffee Maker, Hot Water Kettle, Soaker tub w/o jets, black out curtains and on the Patio was a 4 chair and table plus 2 chaise comfortable lounge chairs. Also, our room had a DVD player (just in case you want to bring one of your favorite DVD’s to watch). Our complimentary breakfast during our stay, had a huge assortment of Pastries (that varied everyday), Eggs, Omelets, Juices, Bacon, etc. There was not many people staying at our resort and we had the Estate Pool to our selves. The Pool Attendants were outstanding, they came and gave us fresh towels every time we had a 5 min or 30 min rain shower. It rained everyday we were there, but not for very long period of times. We didn’t use our Concierge on this trip, but he did check on us every day and told us he was a phone call away. The food was amazing, but just know that all the restaurants are outside, they do not have a restaurant inside. During the day we ate at the Pool and the Pool Attenents brought us the Lobster tacos(Qty of 2), and 2 Pina Colada’s. Delicious!! We attended the Manager Happy Hour on Tuesday night and it was nice to get to meet the Employees and try different appetizers. We ate at Krave one night and got the Lobster with the Grilled Seasoned Vegetables and Cold Lobster salad…Amazing. Overall we had a very relaxing trip. Make sure you bring suntan lotion, medications, because their boutique is very very expensive. We will be back again!
I have never submitted a review while on vacation however feel compelled to do with the hopes of saving someone else a headache, literally! My husband and I are currently here trying to celebrate our anniversary. We are sitting on the beach (on a Saturday morning) attempting to relax and listen to sound of the crashing waves, but instead all we hear is banging, jack-hammers, and saws coming from various locations. No where on the website does it state that the hotel is under renovations, nor was it told to our travel agent. The hotel and staff are wonderful, however the obscene level of noise is definitely taking away from being able to relax and enjoy ourself. Had we known we definitely would have stayed elsewhere... so before booking I suggest asking! I am beyond disappointed.
The hotel was beautiful and the staff was professional and kind. The beach was the prettiest water I had ever seen. The water was perfect, our room was perfect and the entire staff was as close to perfection as possible.
