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
You have a lot of options to decide where you want stay in T.C, We visited various hotels in provo and “The Shore Club” is the best option if you expect luxury and comfort.The breakfast is included (standard buffet).
This was our first trip to the Turks and Caicos as a family. The shore club was amazing. We rented two villas that had six rooms each, a private pool, sauna and hot tub. Our private butler Shakira was amazing with the children and assisted us with all of our services. She was very attentive and genuinely kind. We also had a private chef. Chef Martin was terrific. He created amazing meals for breakfast and dinner in our room. He was very comfortable and blended right in with our family. The villas were very private and welcoming. We had massages and facials in our villa which were awesome. This side of the beach, even though it had a lot of seaweed, was very beautiful. The Prive Ocean Yacht tour that was arranged was so nice and relaxing. We snorkeled, rode jet skis and visited Iguana Island. There were 15 of us with small children and everyone had a wonderful time. The boat and crew did an excellent job. We rode horses one day and rented jet skis another. This is a very new resort. We plan to return hopefully in December and stay here again.
We are a family of 5 (children- twins aged 10 and a 14 year old), and stayed in a first floor garden view suite at The Shore Club for 7 nights in the first week of July. We hired a car for the duration of our stay with Avis right outside Providenciales International Airport- well worth doing this as taxi fares we heard were very expensive. The resort is only 15 minutes from the airport via reasonably well maintained roads. Upon our arrival we were warmly greeted by Amanda who gave us a guided tour of the resort and provided us with much needed refreshments! The grounds and room were immaculate and we were warmly greeted by everyone we met, from bar, cleaning, pool to restaurant staff!- in fact the staff were incredible during our stay- always greeting you with a friendly smile and a hello- but never too intrusive. Our favorites had to be Malakai and Clarence who mainly worked at the Rope Bar- a regular hang out for us!, and the Sui Ren restaurant. Very warm and helpful and able to accommodate any particular cocktail requests! We also met Fritz, the general manager on many occasions and Martin, executive chef. Both very charming and a 'presence' in the resort. Our room was maintained to a very high standard- there was a slight problem with a damp smell in the one of the rooms (they keep moisture absorbers in the closet so they are aware of it) but candles and plug-ins were provided very swiftly after it was mentioned. The quality of food was excellent-quite large portions. Breakfast was buffet style with a wide choice of items and plentiful. The pool areas were stunning and staff very attentive to needs. As has been mentioned previously, the beach is very seaweedy due to the south facing location and the winds. However, they do spend a lot of time trying to clear the seaweed and once you get over it, the water is incredibly shallow and very blue! Other beaches we ventured to were Grace Bay, Leeward (North of Grace Bay) much quieter that GB which we preferred and provided great snorkeling, and Sapodilla Beach on the SW of Providenciales. All absolutely stunning- azure blue seas and white sands. Food wise, we ate out at the Conch Shack- great fun for the kids right on the beach front including demonstrations on how they extract the conch from its shell (just be aware of the ladies selling conch paraphernalia down the beach a bit- good fun but quite overwhelming!) The Landing in the Grace Bay area, followed by incredible ice creams at Island Scoop just down the street a bit- the BEST rum n' raisin I've ever tasted! My son and I went on a half day boat trip with Caicos Dream Tours- fabulous! Snorkeling on the Bight Reef- third largest coral reef in the world, an hour exploring Little Cay or Iguana Island all with lunch and drinks included- sandwiches and fresh conch salad. $99 each and booked via the Concierge at The Shore Club.
It was a fabulous vacation and if we ever return to TCIs we would definitely stay at The Shore Club again!
Overall this place was wonderful and we had a great vacation. The grounds are well kept and the place is spread out so it feels very private and secluded. The pools are amazing and its great that there were so many, especially to keep kids separate from adults when this is desirable. The place is definitely kid friendly, we did not bring ours, but other people did and they were happy with the set up and amenities. I used the gym and it is great, has all the basic needs that one would want on vacation. The complimentary breakfast was wonderful and dining in the main dining room was incredible. We ate there 3 times and never had the same thing and were always pleased. Very sexy and intimate atmosphere at night. Very chill during the day. What really makes this place different from the other hotels is the side of the island that this place is on (opposite from Gansevoort and Grace Bay club). On this side the water is shallow for miles from the shore, so it is a kite boarding haven for those into this sport. The wind is constant and the water is shallow. The downside of this place, for me, was that the beach is very, very narrow and there is agriculture between the hotel and the beach (I'm sure to prevent sand erosion). This impacts the view and the overall beach experience. When were first given a room on the first floor I was greatly disappointed, because we paid for a beach view (king bedroom with study - room class). The room was incredible in size and furnishings, but its the view that I really want. The hotel manager was able to accommodate us by the 3rd night when a room on the second floor opened up and this changed our view dramatically - now that we could see up and over the agriculture that blocks the view of the beach on the first floor. Anyway, all in all the place was great.
We stayed at The Shore Club for 6 nights in early July.
The resort was as expected and we were very pleased. The grounds are well kept. We stayed in a One Bedroom Oceanfront + Study. The room was exceptional. PLENTY of space. Clean with amazing views. We couldn't have asked for any more in a room.
If there is room for improvement, it is in the dining. We ate at Sui-Ren one night and enjoyed it. But other than that, there are not really any other choices for a nice dinner on the resort. The other dining options are average at best. We rented a car for several days (Grace Bay Rentals delivered and picked up right to the resort!) and we thoroughly enjoyed trying places to eat in Provo. Provo is easy to drive as long as you stay on the left side of the road.
We enjoyed having the options of multiple pools at the resort. If you don't like the vibe at one, you can walk over to another one in just a minute or two.
Long Bay beach is not as nice as other places we have been. They struggle with the seaweed washing on shore. But other than that, it is a nice place to spend time but again I suggest visiting some of the other beaches. We love Taylor Bay beach and Malcolm's Road Beach. Both were BEAUTIFUL and secluded.
The wi-fi is slow. But, that is the case around the island. Not a big deal unless you need to stream video.
Overall, we enjoyed The Shore Club. You should consider it as an option!
