The One on Marlin Spa Resort is a newly built condo-style property that caters to adults only. Although there’s a concierge lounge, the property doesn’t have a pool or spa yet, but each unit offers contemporary comforts such as free WiFi, beach chairs for use all over the island, and flat-screen TVs. The units feature dining areas and stainless steel kitchens as well as eye-catching contemporary art and atmospheric ceiling fans. There’s a laundry service on the property, and tennis courts are a short walk away (at an additional cost).
In the Area
You’ll need a rental car to make the most of Providenciales Island’s stunning beaches, but One on Marlin is just a short drive from the white sand and turquoise waters of Grace Bay. Taylor Bay and Chalk Sound are farther afield but well worth the journey. Swing your clubs at the Provo Golf Club; the challenging and beautifully landscaped course is the only one in Turks and Caicos (look out for flamingos in the lakes). Hungry? Hit Bugaloo’s, which is a must for mollusk lovers with such offerings as conch salad, conch fritters, conch chowder and more. Or ditch your pool lounger and trot along Long Bay Beach on horseback; it’s one of the best ways to take in the vista of white sand and turquoise water. Riders of all skill levels can participate; long pants are strongly suggested.
How to Get There
One on Marlin is a good Boutique Hotel for adults its reasonable priced and the accommodations are good. It is not high end, but it does give you a home vibe away from home very clean. The only downside was the patio area while the foliage gave us privacy, the insects wouldn’t leave me alone. A fair warning from hotel staff would have sufficed, but the staff including the butler service were very nice and accommodate with every request. If you are looking for a mellow, relaxing experience One on Marlin is the place to stay. Not to mention the beach not only is it beautiful clear waters the scenery was exactly what I needed. Would definitely stay again.
We had the privilege to stay at the very quaint, beautiful and tranquil One on Marlin. We loved the exclusivity of the hotel. Butler Jan greeted us at our arrival with a much needed rum drink and a cold towel after a long morning of travel. The room had everything we needed. We did have a little mishap with the A/C but Butler Jan was quick to remedy. His customer service is top notch as he makes sure you are without need and very helpful in scheduling transportation, shore/off shore activities and overall accommodations. The beach was amazing along with the amenities the hotel provided. We loved our stay and will return next year.
If you are looking for peace and quiet, then this is the resort for you. The property is beautiful and we rarely saw any other occupants. The suite was very clean and the bed is very comfortable. The suite has everything you could possibly need beyond the full kitchen. They provide you with a cooler, beach chairs and an umbrella that can be used should you want to check out other beaches besides theirs. The resort's beach area was gorgeous. Very quiet but within walking distance to a really great bar/restaurant at West Bay Beach Club and snorkeling reef where we saw tons of fish and a sea turtle! If you do not rent a car, plan to spend at least $40 round trip for each taxi ride anywhere on the island. Our butler Laurence arranged our transportation for us and checked in to make sure we were taken care of. Laurence is the shining star of this resort. He took care of absolutely everything we could possibly need during our stay. The shuttle to the beach and the pool is very quick and was very convenient. This resort is a hidden gem among the very numerous and overcrowded resorts that dot the island. My husband and I are looking forward to returning very soon.
