Find a tranquil and restful retreat in The Oasis at Grace Bay, an all-suites resort tucked away on Turks and Caicos’ beautiful Providenciales. With apartment-style furnishings, a Grace Bay Village locale and a setting just a block and a half from the beach, each abode here is like its own tropical home, an ideal place to live, dine and hide away like a carefree islander. It comes complete with all the necessities, from a kitchen to a washer and dryer, so you’ll never have to leave. Except, of course, to make a grocery run to the steps-away market.
But even once you’ve stocked your fridge with snacks and drinks, you’ll return to the scenic outdoors anyway – and when you do, you’ll notice that it’s nice and somewhat secluded here, too. In fact, the relative lack of crowds and the feeling that you’ve hit upon a hidden treasure, undiscovered and unspoiled, are the reasons that Grace Bay’s beach has been voted the single best in the world (by Huffington Post, no less). Enjoy this on a snorkeling, diving, parasailing or kite surfing excursion, perhaps spotting friendly JoJo the dolphin. Who said isolation wasn’t splendid?
Feel like an islander in these apartment-style oases. A full-sized kitchen, living space, washer and dryer apiece are just a few of the touches that make each suite feel like your own beach home, though the views of the tropical surroundings don’t hurt.Two Bedroom suites offer your choice of staying on the ground or second floor, as well as a spacious balcony, master suite with a king bed and an en-suite bathroom, plus a second bedroom and a bathroom accessible from the living area. The more-spacious Luxury suites offer a king bed and an en-suite bathroom in each bedroom, plus even higher-end features, such as a larger balcony.

On the northern end of Providenciales, Grace Bay is home to the world’s single most beautiful beach, according to Huffington Post in 2014. It also houses the shops at Regent Village, as well as a long coral reef, ideal for divers. Offerings like the world’s first conch farm and the plantation-house ruins at Cheshire Hall and Richmond Hill further set this island apart from other tropical destinations, as does the presence of JoJo the friendly dolphin, who’s known to seek out human company on occasion.
How to Get There
We stayed in the Oasis for a total of 7 days. We paid 263 USD per day traveling in the first week of September. It was OK. "Not great, not terrible". I'd like to say that the staff was always nice to us, especially Nev and Jun, however, despite their best efforts, our experience was not ideal unfortunately. Maybe that's due to being unlucky, or due to the timing, but in any case, as of right now we wouldn't recommend staying in the Oasis if you're staying as a couple and used to some comforts.
- Lots of towels
- Very good bathroom
- Very nice balcony
- Good room cleaning service
- The pools were nice and clean
- The beach close to the Oasis is pristine! Really amazing.
- Nespresso machine in the room
- The hotel looks new and has good appliances, such as mini fridge, and Nest smoke detectors
- The BBQ grill was the life saver at this place, and deserves a star on its own, as it made a huge difference given that a lot of restaurants were closed when we were there (and the hotel doesn't have any food either). Just make sure to buy grillable food and condiments at the grocery store as the hotel doesn't provide any of that (not even salt or pepper).
- For the first two days we had a room with a (closed) door connecting to another room. There was zero privacy. We could hear every word from the other room, and they could hear us. Disastrous and not relaxing at all. Make sure not to get one of these rooms, or cancel otherwise! Non negotiable.
- Staff is nice, but has no clue for the most part. We tried to organize several things through the front desk, but many times we got better tours/deals doing our own research. Several times the staff sent us on goose chases and ended up costing us money and time trying to get to places that ended up being closed (such as da conch shack, which cost us 90 USD in taxi charge alone for nothing, or Jack's fountain). A lot of things were closed. The staff should be on top of that and be careful and diligent in advising where to go. Guessing doesn't help at all.
- During our stay there was significant construction going on, on multiple sites across the hotel. The daily drilling and hammering from 8am to 6pm was incredibly annoying and when booking there was no mention at all that there would be ongoing construction. We recommend contacting the hotel first if they are intending to do this on your travels, as we wouldn't have booked here had we known that beforehand.
- They started charging my credit card at random points in time causing me to call my credit card company as it wasn't clear at all where the charges were coming from. No mention of Oasis hotel of course. All charges should be done at checkout in my opinion, if you don't want to freak out your customers.
- They don't have a bar or ability to make you cocktails or anything of the like. They only have beer. That's nice but it's far from a relaxing experience if you have to go to other hotels each time just for a piña colada.
- Practically all restaurants around the hotel were closed when we were there. On top of that basically no restaurant serves you if you arrive at 9pm or later. The hotel itself does not provide any snacks or food whatsoever. On our first night we went to bed without having eaten..
The above notwithstanding we can highly recommend "Charles the taxi driver". The hotel knows him but you have to ask explicitly for him. You will get better prices than any other taxi and excellent service if you stick with him throughout your trip. He's also very knowledgeable and saved us from hotel recommended trips that would have led to closed doors, despite losing revenue by doing so.
We had a wonderful mother daughter trip here in August! This place is lovely! The room was gorgeous, spotlessly clean, with a great pool view! The staff was very very nice & helpful when asking questions about shopping, restaurants, etc. The 3 minute walk to the stunning beach was easy with somedays in the late afternoons getting rides back with golf carts. We got groceries at the Graceway Store just 10 min. away so we only ate out each evening saving lots of meal money this way. The prices in the store were quite comparable with prices in the US. We did buy gal. Jugs of water to fill our water bottles for the beach each day but found that the water here was safe to drink too! Each morning we’d check out bikes to ride 10 minutes down to the shops. SO much fun! We are definitely returning next summer again and plan to stay longer than a week as we really didn’t want to leave!
This might be the best bargain on the island. Even though it is not on the beach, it's a quick golf cart ride or short walk to there beach area. The beach is gorgeous, it might be one of the prettiest I have been too. The resort was nicely landscaped and taken care of. The staff was friendly and attentive. There are plenty of spots to relax and chill out. The rooms were nicely decorated and had great amenities. They have complimentary bikes to use if you want a quick ride into town. I would definitely recommend checking Oasis @ Grace Bay out, great value.
