Sitting on one of the widest slices of beach on Providenciales Island, Turks & Caicos, the Gansevoort strikes an effortless balance between modern simplicity and island allure. The ocean is in view from the moment you check in, but this isn’t your typical beach vacation. Nor, for that matter, is it the typical Gansevoort. The 85 guest rooms feel more like South Beach apartments than part of a hotel. All of the spacious suites have impressive water views, kitchens or kitchenettes and airy terraces. Bathrooms have rain showers (some feature separate tubs) and frosted glass sliding doors. Stretch out in a One-Bedroom Luxury Oceanfront Suite: At 1,100 square feet, these accommodations feature an open floor plan with at-home luxuries like a washer/dryer and dining room/living area. The sexy vibe continues through the pristine pool area, which has island cabanas floating on the water; it’s a cushioned white oasis punctuated by pops of orange fabric and the blue of the ocean. Under an airy outdoor veranda, the resort’s Exhale Spa offers its signature yoga and Core Fusion classes (which have a cult-like following in New York and LA); it’s just enough exercise to justify an afternoon massage. The Italian restaurant, Stelle, excels at seafood—whether it’s with pasta, as appetizers or as main dishes, such as cornmeal crusted tuna and red snapper cartoccio. A must-try is the fresh tuna tartare, complete with sun-dried tomatoes, shallots, and herbs.
In the Area
For dinner plans, the glamorous restaurant Parallel 23 offers a romantic setting for dining alfresco, and the state-of-the-art display kitchen and boutique wine list make it one of the islands’ best spots for a savory meal. After, head back to the Gansevoort to party at Stelle. This Turks and Caicos outpost is a bit more refined than the chain’s New York scene, but it’s a great place to people-watch over Spanish influenced cuisine and cocktails. If you want to explore the marine life, you’re in luck: Turks and Caicos has some of the best diving in the Atlantic. Off Salt Cay it’s possible to dive with whales, and at Molasses Reef off West Caicos Island you can peek at one of the oldest European shipwrecks in the Caribbean with Provo Turtle Divers.
How to Get There
My experience at Wymara was excellent!!! The staff at the resort made this one of my all time favorite vacations. Janette in the boutique was so kind and even steam ironed a dress I had purchase there for dinner that night. Javon was also one of the guys who took us out to the water and was very kind and informative. The whole staff made us feel so welcomed, The manager with the suspenders made sure to always ask us if we were doing ok. Our room was cleaned twice a day and I loved how quiet and peaceful the resort was. Our last night we enjoyed dinner at zest while DJDayoh played and it was a great way to end our trip to the beautiful island of Turks and Caicos
I can't say enough about Wymara Resort and Spa. The facilities were immaculate and beautifully maintained. The location could not have been more convenient. Most importantly, the staff is INCREDIBLE. Some of the best service I've ever received. Everyone goes above and beyond to ensure guests of the resort have a five star experience. My husband and I traveled there for my birthday and upon arrival there was a bottle of champagne and a DELICIOUS chocolate cake in our room. I can't recommend this resort enough. We will certainly be back!
The perfect honeymoon. Upon arrival we were greeted with friendly faces and cocktails. We were given a tour of the impeccable grounds and shown to our room which too was breathtaking. Wymara quickly became home away from home for us as we became acquainted with the resort as well as the staff. Our days began and ended on the beach where Javon took exceptional care of us, while answering all of our questions. He assured we had everything we needed day in and day out. By the end of our trip, he was our hardest goodbye along with the beauty surrounding this beautiful place. The entire beach staff was such a pleasure to be around and quickly became our favorite faces! Job catered to all of food and drink needs while lounging and made sure we were well fed with the most delicious island options. The service was unbeatable and the location doesn’t get better on the island. We spent many days snorkeling nearby. (A great surprise) We will be back and look so forward to making more memories here! Thanks for the excellence in everything, Wymara.
