Overview

Luxe Grace Bay Beach sleep with a massive pool, topnotch cuisine, and a splurge-worthy spa

The Lowdown

Laid-back island living, bespoke experiences, and modern luxuries come together at the The Palms Turks and Caicos, an elegant British estate-inspired resort where iPod Minis and tropical sorbets await poolside, the sprawling suites start at 1,500 square feet, and a spa menu offers an East-meets-West experience. The resort’s five buildings, built from hand-cut coral stone, are set on 12 acres of manicured gardens at the edge of powder-soft Grace Bay Beach; inside, four-poster beds with hand-tufted mattresses, marble floors, vaulted ceilings and milled crown moldings lend suites an air of period elegance. Rooms also have open-concept dining areas and living spaces, plus gourmet kitchens in One-Bedroom Suites. If you’re not in the mood to cook, the resort can arrange for a private chef to whip up a little something—say, a trio of Quebec foie gras and fresh crab rolls—for an intimate gathering on the private terrace. The heart of the resort is the infinity pool, which serpentines around wooden decks, palm trees, sun pods, and sexy lounger beds covered in soft terry fabric and tangerine-colored cushions where, in the heat of the afternoon, a pool attendant distributes free fruit kabobs and chilled towels. Should you want a bite, swim up to Plunge bar. Save time for the spa, where exfoliating scrubs incorporate locally produced sea salt and crushed queen conch shells. After working up an appetite paddleboarding on Grace Bay Beach, hit Parallel23, where the culinary team prepares casual Caribbean specialties like corn and conch chowder.

In the Area

The Turks and Caicos islands are renowned for their world class diving. Don’t worry if you’re not PADI certified – Dive Provo can have you suited up after a one day Discovery Course. Adventure-seekers who prefer to stay on shore can explore the island via Vespa on a guided tour with Paradise Scooters. You’ll drive off the beaten path, stopping to see some TCI treasures including the world’s only Conch Farm, Emerald Cay, and Sapodilla Bay, with a stop for lunch at Da Conch Shack, a seaside spot full of island charm, complete with tables dug into the sand and a live calypso band. At sunset, head to beachfront pop-up bar and restaurant Stix for fantastic jerk roasted coconut corn on the cob and grilled coriander lionfish served shish kebab style – you guessed it – on sticks.
