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
We always say after a vacation we need a vacation to relax ????No not this place we lived the real dream and peaceful one surrounded of excellent customer service . The ambiance is designed in a relaxing and amazingly fun way especially with the staff who goes beyond expectation to please you. Abdulah the director of front office was great. He goes out of his way to make sure you have everything and you are enjoying your room and vacation. He was checking on us and on all the people in the resort frequently to make sure we are all enjoying our time and giving us advices with the concierge where to do activities. He is all over the place. Staff of breakfast are cheerful especially the twin brothers. Mohamed was great and helpful till the last minute. We loved this place . We can’t wait to go back again to the villas
Just spend six days at Wymara with my wife. It was our first trip away from our baby alone and we wanted the best of everything. The staff at Wymara delivered on every level. You can tell every employee takes pride in their work and wants to make an impact on your experience. Special thanks to the bartender Andrew and Javon at the beach! Customer service at it best! Can't wait to come back soon.
From airport we took private SUV to hotel which was very nice but expensive ($130). Greeted with drinks and cold towels, very friendly people. Hotel was gorgeous, small, beautiful pool and great beach with nice chairs and umbrellas. Hotel was rather empty for October but we loved it. Room was clean and beautiful with great view of ocean! Main restaurant was good not great, free breakfast buffet was nice as the food overall was expensive for what you got. If you are there on Thursdays check out "fish fry" next to hotel, lots of island food and vendors, very safe! I would recommend eating out local restaurants as we food the food to be cheaper and better than the hotel!
