At Point Grace, there is plenty of space to get comfortable; all guest rooms are generously-proportioned suites, which range from one to four bedrooms. Details are the key here, with Frette linens, Indonesian teak furnishings, and Turkish Saturnia floors in every room. There’s also a dedicated Thalassotherapy spa that offers treatments like massage and body scrubs in seaside pavilions, shaded loungers for your use on the beach, and a colonial-style bar complete with whirring ceiling fans and eclectic antiques.
In the Area
The jewel in the crown of Providenciales island is Grace Bay Beach, regularly lauded as one of the world’s best. Point Grace is perfectly situated on its white sands and ideal for those who prefer to while away a week on property. It’s a short bike ride to the nearest grocery store, though a rental car will help restless types to make the most of the island, whether they choose to charter a sail boat, play a round of golf at Provo Golf Club, or explore historic sights like Wade’s Green, the redolent ruins of a former cotton plantation on North Caicos, which is accessible by ferry.
How to Get There
What a delightful week I had! could not have asked for a more relaxing, perfect week. from in suite check in to sending my I-Pad to the Airport after I failed to unplug it and left in upon checkout, the service and accommodations were amazing. The suites are gorgeous, the breakfast and lunch menus are delicious, the CALM poolside happy hour was great to mingle with the other guest, and then Grace's Cottage for dinner was always a culinary adventure. Having not had a vacation, or a week off for over 5 years, I needed rest, beach, food and did I mention Rest? Typical day, wake up, put on a pot of coffee, head down to the Morning Rest. for some fresh squeezed OJ, back to the porch for my coffee and newspaper, once the pot was done, slather with Sunblock, drop my beach bag off with the beach attendant, who set up my umbrella, chair, towels and Ice bucket full of bottled waters, while I went to breakfast. great fresh fruit and pastries breakfast and then to the beach for some reading, sleeping time, back to the room for a shower and a nap on the porch, usually accompanied by an afternoon rain shower for the really good sleep, and then a bumptious dinner. rinse and repeat for 5 nights! Point Grace was just what the doctor ordered..... and oh, yea, a 3 minute walk into the village was the extent of my excursions, but a shout out to the 5 start culinary Genius that is Provence, a nearby french rest. that gave a nice alternative to the great food at Grace's Cottage. thanks you all for an amazing trip,
We just returned from a week at Point Grace, and we can't wait to return. The service you receive at this property is unlike anywhere else we've ever stayed. Rowena started our trip off by showing us around the property with a smile. She had chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us at arrival. Wendy by the beach was quick to take care of our every need. He always made sure we had fresh towels, a shady spot to lounge and lots of water. I was able to book two massages this trip with Jasmine. I'm convinced she's the best massage therapist on the island. The staff truly make this property. Everything was always clean and tidy. I can't thing of a single thing I would change! The location on Grace Bay beach can't be beat. We can't wait to return to Point Grace again!
The property Is beautifully landscaped and maintained throughout the day, every day! Our poolside bungalow was beautiful, charming, clean, spacious, well appointed and comfortable. Upon arrival, a fresh flower bouquet was waiting (as my husband had requested) along with fresh hibiscus adorning our bed and bath towels and lavatories. Special accolades to Chef Suresh, Nordia, Larry, Karine, Windy, Cosomey, Allison, and Paulette. Everyone made us feel so welcome and accommodated all special requests. The other guests we met made our time at Point Grace even more enjoyable. Thanks to all who make Point Grace an ideal get-a-way. We miss you all!
My girlfriend and I spent five days and four nights at Point Grace Resort & Spa which we loved. Point Grace is a low-rise, low-density and architecturally attractive boutique property on a beautiful stretch of Beach on Grace Bay. We had a one bedroom ocean-front suite which was clean, roomy, tastefully appointed and comfortable. Our suite was on the ground floor which was very convenient and a semi-private patio. Due to the natural vegetation between the villas and the beach, however, our view of the ocean was limited (preserving this natural vegetation between the resort and the beach is incredibly wise, however, as it limits erosion and protects the property from storms.
- Small, low-rise boutique property with architecturally attractive villas in harmony with the surroundings and gentle island rhythm
- Emphasis on peacefulness and serenity (noise - including other people's bad music presumably) and games are prohibited by the pool area which we loved
- Pristine, uncrowded (which is a function of the low-rise, low density nature of the resort) fine white/pink sand beach and fabulously warm and clear Caribbean water
- Close proximity to stores and, in particular, grocery and liquor stores
- Walking distance to several good restaurants
- Far enough away from Club Med
- Friendly and cheerful staff
In addition to Point Grace’s wonderful attributes noted above, possibly the most appealing aspect of Grace Bay is the total lack of jet skis and wave runners which have badly degraded other beaches in the Caribbean like Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach. This, in addition to the complete absence of cruise ships (which are permitted to dock only on Grand Turk Island) are reason enough to return.
- The continental breakfast which is included in the nightly room rate leaves much to be desired. They should do away with the fruit loops and Apple Jacks and other sugary, awful cereals and add more and more healthy variety.
- Much to our horror, we discovered that a new Ritz Carlton complex is under construction a short distance up the beach. If the massive, vulgar Ritz Carlton that went up on Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach a few years ago is any indication, this new monstrosity will severely degrade the up-to-now serene, pristine, uncrowded and beautiful Grace Bay.
The Seven Stars Resort is bad enough – thankfully, that project was shut down before the other four “stars” could be build and rumor has it that some of the developers fled the Island before they could be prosecuted. Again, if the Ritz on Grand Cayman’s Seven Mile Beach is any indication, whatever official building code or unofficial code of honor used to limit building height and scale on Grace Bay is history and the once lovely Grace Bay is undergoing “Miami Beach-ification”. No thanks.
So, if you’re inclined to go, our advice is hurry.
Please forgive me in advance if I misspelled your name but I think I'm close enough that you know who you are. Our time at Point Grace was fantastic. After leaving behind a cooler and wetter than normal North Jersey spring it was a welcome change to go to 82 degrees and sunny for 7 days in Providenciales. That was only the beginning. A stay at Point Grace is a stay at a boutique resort. Not the hustle and bustle of the larger resorts but instead a feeling of family among the staff and their guests. After check in our first encounter was with Karine at breakfast the following day. She was warm, friendly and attentive with a huge smile. This is typical of the staff at Point Grace. We often spent the morning on the beach and the afternoons by the pool where we were pampered by Cosomey. Like Karine she had huge smile that was superseded only by their enormous personality. I would also like to mention that housekeeping came twice a day and Paulette did a wonderful job each day as well as the evening people though I did not get their names. If you get a chance to visit the spa as I did for a mani/pedi and a massage ask for Myrna (hope I spelled that correctly).
Monday was the managers cocktail hour where we met the behind the scenes people and the were all professional and gracious as I came to expect. At the cocktail hour we had the good fortune to meet Suresh the executive chef at Grace's Cottage. We had been to Provo several years ago and enjoyed a couple of dinners at Garam Marsala and were disappointed to find out that they had recently closed. My wife asked Suresh if there wer any other places on the island that prepared Indian food. Suresh offered to cook a special meal for us and our friends even though Indian cusine was not on their menu. The evening along with the food was splendid. The fact that Suresh went our of his way to procure the necessay ingredients that were not part of their usual fare was really above and beyond the call of duty. The evening for us and our friends was a huge hit. We will never forget that gesture. We hope to return to Point Grace. There is no reason not to.
