If you’re looking to swank up your next Turks and Caicos stay, join the club – Shore Club. This all-new escape is upping the luxe factor, with everything from boutiques to a spa to a state-of-the-art gym to a treehouse for kids. The culinary program includes a Peruvian and pan-Asian fine-dining room, three bars and a lovely “cloister garden,” for breakfast and tea. If you’d like to stay dry, there are tennis games to play and bikes to ride; if you prefer all things aquatic, you can swim in the three pools, one with its own bar.
This gem is also perched along the Caribbean coast, so consider going to the beach – one of the beaches, rather. Iconic Grace Bay is just a short way away, and the hotel’s private shore is on Long Bay Beach, a Condé Nast Traveler favorite. If you choose the second, you’ll be able to take advantage of the complimentary watersports equipment, like snorkels and sea kayaks, and either way, you can bring along a book from the library. There’s a long enough list of tropical adventures here, in other words, that having a glamorous island getaway, your way, is basically guaranteed. Or should we say, a Shore thing?
The 110 Shore Club rooms and 38 suites bring the outdoors in, evoking the tropics through natural materials and palette of whites and blues. Every single one is appointed with elegant furnishings and complete with views onto Long Bay.Spacious Junior suites include a king-sized bed, a sofa that converts to an extra bed, a spacious bathroom and a private terrace boasting your choice of garden or ocean views. You’ll be facing the beautiful water if you opt to stay in the larger One or Two Bedroom Ocean Front suites. These sumptuous retreats include a large living room, a full kitchen, plus an outdoor terrace or patio with gorgeous views.
Feeling fancy? Sit down to a sumptuous Peruvian or pan-Asian meal at the fine-dining room. This restaurant is only one of three eateries on the premises, with lighter bites – and drinks, like wines and cocktails – available poolside and on the beach. Breakfast takes place each morning in the pretty Cloister Garden, which also hosts a charming afternoon tea.
Dune Spa is the perfect place to embrace the peaceful pace of island living and treat yourself to a therapy at Dune Spa. Receive a massage or facial, all while watching the Caribbean waves lap against the shore.
The hotel is set on Long Bay Beach, a Condé Nast Traveler pick for one of the world’s top island beaches. It’s also near Grace Bay Beach, called the world’s best by multiple sources, including TripAdvisor in 2016. Swim and sunbathe on the powder-soft sands, or try diving, fishing, golfing or horseback riding along (or inside) the waters – all available through local suppliers. (Sea kayaking and snorkeling are complimentary, with hotel gear, with children’s-activity options at the kids club.) Surrounding Providenciales island also boasts a long and interesting cultural and natural history, which you can learn more about at the Caves of Middle Caicos, the National Environmental Center, the cotton plantation Cheshire Hall or the nearby National Museum.
How to Get There
This hotel was amazing. The customer service was top notch! The Shore Club had the BEST breakfast each morning. The room was clean and a nice size! The beach was great, lots of room to relax and have fun in the water!! The pool area was also nice! I will stay here again!
This stand alone resort on Long Bay Beach is beautiful. Very new and clean, the entire resort is spotless. This includes the pool side washrooms! Multiple pool areas make for a serene experience. Rooms are extremely comfortable, well appointed and spacious. Corridors are wide and spacious, giving a homely feeling, rather than just a narrow hallway. The property is just beautiful and upscale. The beach is slightly narrow and has seaweed that the grounds crew are working on constantly. The ocean water is very warm and maybe more so than the pools. Breakfast is included, very substantial and in a beautiful open air setting. Great friendly staff. Food service at the restaurants seems slow for lunch. After returning from golf, I ordered, went back to the room to change, showered and had a dip in the pool. I dried off before my order arrived. The burgers are quite good, the fries not so much. Fish tacos are excellent, the chowder tasty, but small portion. This is a fabulous resort and we all had a great stay!
We vacationed at the Shore Club (SC) during the summer season. This was our second trip, having visited when it first opened. Upon return, the water became a highlight of the trip, flopping around on the sandy ocean floor with perfectly clear turquoise water, so much clearer than the east coast USA.
WALKING IN WATER. We found this was great exercise to walk in the shallow water and went quite a distance out and could turn back to see the shoreline and the new buildings.
There was more SEAWEED THIS TRIP. I learned from the beach guys the reef sheds seaweed like trees up north shed leaves in the fall. You have to live with nature I guess. The beach was cleaned daily.
The NEW ORANGE BUOYS are in place to keep kite surfers away from the beach in front of Shore Club. It’s a significant improvement for peace of mind swimming.
AFTERNOON TEA. They still have it! I can’t believe how a simple thing like hot tea and sweets (British custom) at the same time everyday makes a vacation, but it is something I always look forward to.
CONCIERGE BY SMARTPHONE TEXT. This new text messaging service with the front desk and concierge works quite well. The response is fairly quick and if the text is not answered a resend usually got their attention.
The FOOD HAS IMPROVED. The morning breakfast buffet now has a side menu where in addition to the buffet, you can custom order direct from the kitchen. The guacamole tomato toast and smoked salmon plate were my favorites. The food manager from Mauritius is great! I enjoyed the Colonnade Restaurant (best fish tacos) and the Sui Ren (best suchi). The prices are in-line with off-site restaurants.
SISTER PROPERTY. We drove by and walked around The Palms Resort on Grace Bay. The beach was busy with people, boats and signs. Everyone we talked with love this place, and it was a nice excursion, but the Shore Club is really a more relaxed atmosphere better suited to our style.
RENTAL CAR. We had a rental car last trip and got one for this week trip. So convenient with a car, easy to tour island, go out to eat, explore other beaches and the parking under the hotel is easy access to the room. Worth the $300 for a week IMHO, but...
... PETTY RENTAL CAR VANDALISM. While our car was parked in the SC underground garage, the passenger side outdoor mirror was stolen. We drove in one day with it attached and a day later it was gone. At the hotel managers suggestion (Anthony), we gave his business card to Avis at the airport return and no extra charges were levied.
FRIENDLY PEOPLE WORK HERE. All the staff were friendly from the bartender Michael, to house cleaners, to food servers, to management. They chatted with sincerity, and made a big impression on us. Staying longer might have made us more relaxed and easier to talk with.
STILL THE BEST FOR US. The Shore Club continues to improve and meets our holiday style. All fond memories . . . we will be back.
