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
I came out with a few of my girlfriends to the shore club beach to celebrate my birthday, and Arturo did such an amazing job making sure that we were all set up and having a great time! We really enjoyed ourselves and would definitely come back again for the phenomenal service.
My wife and I stayed at The Shore Club for five days in February 2019. It was our first time. The lodgings are up-to-date, pleasant, and full of green shrubbery. Our personal concierge, Jamuson, contacted us daily to support us, and made all of our reservations perfectly. I am a sailor, and the beach was always breezy, so Jose always set me up well to sail the resort's 14' Hobie on the bay. There were many kite surfers. Germaine and Lenore at the swimming pool restaurant were gracious and constantly cheerful. We will save up and return!
The resort is beautiful, clean, nicely maintained. Crew at beach was very helpful and nice - helping to set up chairs with towels and assisting with water sports. Nice to have SUP and Hobies free and easily accessible. Servers at restaurants were great also - especially Yolanda. Room was well equipped and comfortable - with couch, table and chairs, and outdoor balcony had 2 chairs and small table too. Bathroom smelled a bit musty and damp. Our king bed was actually 2 twins pushed together but was ok. Our view overlooked the main pool which was nice. Drinks and food were good (dinner at Sui-Ren was excellent) but pricey. We did rent a car which was helpful to get around the island and try other restaurants. *****Major complaint was with the front desk and concierge services. ******** I had emailed several times before our arrival and got a very delayed response (which was meant for someone else - wrong name and not pertinent to us at all!) - never got an answer to my questions before we arrived. We did not meet our concierge until our LAST day (her name was Brandeis - spelling?) - despite us reaching out to her many times - she said she was looking for us all week but that she thought we were an older couple - not sure why this took her all week to figure it out?!). She provided us with NO assistance and only came to seek us out on our last day after we complained several times. One day a pair of random pants ended up on our bed midday - we called the front desk to alert them - said someone would be right up to get them - no one ever came - we had to call 2 more times and eventually just took the pants who belonged to someone else to the front desk. When our bill arrived, it had over $500 of spa charges on it - we never even went to the spa?! We had many apologies from the front desk but that was all - they never followed up with us or even tried to solve our problems. Very disappointing. We generally are not complainers at all, and I rarely post negative reviews but this was exceptionally bad and only felt fair to others considering this resort. Gorgeous resort, horrible service!
Awesome location for a kite boarding flat water and relaxing without crowds. Food was really good but slightly overpriced. Best restaurant we had dinner at the whole time was provincial a French cuisine that was highly rated
I fell in Love with the Shore Club. The architecture is stunning and very unique. It is THE ONLY hotel/resort on the Long Bay Beach (and new, just a few years old) which provides privacy. There are some private Villas on both sides of the resort but beach is not crowded at all, only resort guests . Service is amazing- great beach lounges, fresh towel, cold water , beach umbrella service buttons, pool and beach bars. I loved open Lap pool for my workout. There are free bikes offered if you want to take a ride outside resort.
If you ever consider taking Kite Boarding lessons- Long Bay beach is the best in the World to do it. it is shallow for at least a mile which makes it easy to take lesson in the water as you can stand far from the beach. Kites, jet ski, paddle boards, kayaks are available for rent right at the beach near The Shore Club, super convenient. I liked Big Blue Collective company there.
The location is pretty isolated and that what makes beach very private. You would need transportation (rental car or taxi) to get anywhere outside resort , taxi is expensive. We went to Coco Bistro (reserve in advance to get there, the place is always packed) and to Mr. Grooper's Restaurant (very casual but famous local dining place) and taking taxi was $30 ONE WAY to either restaurant, approximately 10 minutes drive.
