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
This resort is one the most outstanding properties you would to stay at on any island. Besides the waters that are painted in so many colors of turquoise and blue like that of a artist and sand as white as the puffy clouds mixed with the deep blue skies, is the staff. There is that sincere smile, the effort to please, the happiness that your at their hotel and the consent professional service that you would expect from a 5 star resort. Make this hotel at the top of your bucket list!!!
Wymara exceeded our expectations from the get go. Upon arrival we were immediately upgraded to a better room. You’re greeted with Turks and Caicos rum in an open air beautiful lobby. From the housekeeping, specifically Louvane.. to the wait staff, our favorite was Stanley.. he has a smile and energy that will make your stay better immediately, to even all the different guests you meet.. everyone is so friendly. There are so many names I could put down from the 5 days we spent with these wonderful employees. I hope hotel management treats them well because they will be the reason we come back. To all that staff at Wymara.. thank you.
Dear Management of Wymara Resort and Villas!
My husband and I attempted a quick gateway to celebrate our anniversary. We thought we did our research to find the something great. Our time and money is something we value and Wymara resort came highly recommended. We were excited for a luxury experience.
To sadly say , at the least we were Greatly disappointed. Our normal standards of simple expectations here merely scratched the surface. I would describe this as way below the bar of decent.
Due to my experience I will never recommend this place, not even to my greatest of enemies.
Your breakfast restaurant needs some major lessons in how to pay attention to the guests of hotel. We found ourselves waiting for 20 minutes for a simple cup of coffee!After that we were passed up many times as if we weren’t even sitting there. I would love to say there were very busy but that unfortunately was not the case.
This being ignored thing and passed up didn’t happen just one morning but In fact happened all three mornings I stayed with you for everything and anything we needed or wanted.I could have died of a heart attack and your staff would still pretend not to to see me to call an ambulance.
Call me difficult but I thought I was the one on vacation not your staff at breakfast.So it came to the point that i had to get up and speak with a manager and only after that we received an excellent service from the manager!
Beach and pool service were also equally as disappointing and frustrating to deal with.Apparently tips do not matter nor does what you ask for or what you order. If I didn’t know any better I would think your staff was being held against their will to work.They seemed angry because we wanted to order drinks. As if they were experiencing a form of punishment.
And to top all of this off , The concierge would not extend my checkout. I was just told no. I find it hard to believe an hour would have made any sort of a difference. Especially when the hotel seemed empty and trust me I would be surprised if it was ever full with this level of service.
I was given a cheap bottle of rose as if that was supposed to make up for this horrendous experience. I won’t be back and I will be sure to let everyone know never to stay with you at Wymara Hotel and Villas.
Sincerely yours your very unhappy guest ,
Rooms and overall hotel were very nice. A little on the pricier side. But I think that is Turks and Caicos in general. Beaches/water in Grace Bay were spectacular. The overall staff were not that outwardly motivated or willing. I would expect this from a high-end resort. Beware, the drink prices are stupidly expensive. $17-$20!!! this was the craziest. Luckily we brought bottles of alcohol and that probably saved us a ton and was much more convenient. 15 min walk to grocery store to get mixes and snacks. Would go explore other close by restaurants. Turtle Cove has a few and it is only $6/person one way. I don't mind paying high prices but expect the quality and service to match.
Amazing Hotel! From the friendly staff at check-in to housekeeping to the waiters both on the beach and at the restaurants. We were treated like Royalty. The location was perfect. The amenities were as offered. My family and I will definitely be returning SOON!
I would like to thank two special people that went above and beyond during our stay. Our housekeeper Louvane always had a smile on her face and such a great attitude towards her job and life. DeeJo was also so very accommodating and made sure we were always taken care of. The two individuals are a great asset to Wymara!
