Classically beachy, the property takes design cues from Providenciales’ powder-soft sand, with all-white buildings, pale stone floors and white sun loungers set around a central outdoor pool. Nods to the Italian name are subtle: Terra-cotta tile roofs atop shaded walkways and balconies at the front and back of the suites.
Bed and Bath
Each of the enormous suites has three bedrooms (rooms are locked off if you book just one bedroom), a half bath, a laundry room, a state-of-the-art kitchen with Royal Doulton china and OXO appliances, an open-plan living area and a private balcony enclosed by mosquito netting. Dark wood kitchen cabinets and furniture contrast with the pale stone floors and pastel walls, and ikat or floral print cushions add a classy dash of color. The master bathrooms are apartment-size spaces in marble, with corner jet tubs, separate sinks and glass-enclosed showers.
Just beyond the hotel is Grace Bay Beach… and that’s really the point of staying here. There’s no restaurant (but the luxe kitchens can be stocked in advance, and the hotel does offer room service), and the staff clocks off at 5 p.m. (but you’re handed a cell phone on arrival), so the Venetian suits families and groups looking to play house in the Caribbean. Active types will get their fix in the small gym and on the two tennis courts, and there are free bikes for trips into town.
How to Get There
The Venetian at Grace Bay Beach is second to none. If you are planning a trip to Turks and Caicos islands, contact The Venetian's Colleen, she is the best! She helped to line our itinerary and made reservations for each day including activities.Our vacation was a 10! Our villa 3/3 where literally steps away from the beach,and pool. Screen patio, bedroom views of the best beaches in the world. We can tell you, you will not be disappointed,this villa is steps away from the casino, restaurants, shopping, massages and watersports. Colleen,thank you for a beautiful vacation, we had a fantastic time. See you next Summer, we visited other properties while we were there and we are so happy we chose the Venetian. Take notes; you must have a rental car to get around, recommend Avis, we had a shocker at one of the other well known rental locations. Cook and eat breakfast in the villa.Theres a bbq pit on the property.Bay Bistro has the best dinner but it is pricey. Solana restaurant and Danny Buoys is affordable. Have cash, international fees on your card adds up.Carry a MC or Visa, Discover/Amex not much.Leave your jacket/sweaters at home its hot! Take water shoes to wear Parasailing and walking on the beach after noon.Insects are bad at dusk and night, wear repellent! Shop Regent Village and Salt Mills Plaza. Hope this helps,hope you have a great time! We had a blast, we stayed 5 days.
Spent 5 days at the Venetian. Very spacious and clean 2 bedroom suite for my family of four with stunning views of the bay. This is in the northern aspect of the island so away from shops but the privacy of the beach was wonderful and the smaller size of the resort meant the pool was never crowded for my young children. Even the WiFi was decent. Nice fitness center. Extremely helpful staff. From getting us groceries to rescheduling our day trips after rain cancelled two days in a row of activities to just overall kindness the staff was more than I expected. The cell service could be better. Also the northern location means taxi rides to many locations was a little more expensive than I expected. However I highly recommend the Venetian on Grace Bay and would absolutely stay there again.
This was our fourth TCI stay and first at the Venetian. The Venetian was exactly what we wanted and hoped for. We stayed for 12 nights and 7 of those nights we had another couple with us. All units have 3 bedrooms and the common space in the unit is large enough where it never felt crowed to the 4 of us. We celebrated our 20th anniversary while there and were so excited to find a bottle of Prosecco awaiting our arrival compliments of the fine front office folks. The unit was well appointed and really had little sign of being a place that was on the rental market.
We saw lots of folks around the grounds making sure that anything that needed attention, was getting it. Beach chairs and umbrellas went up and down every day and floats were readily available at both the beach and the pool. We never felt that it was too busy at either and I believe that many if not all units were occupied while we were there.
We used the fitness room pretty much daily. The only drawback to that room was the cooling. Obviously it’s not cooled when not in use and it took a fair amount of time before you could feel the AC once we started it. Me being an early bird and first in the room daily… very warm at first. I guess the Silver Lining here is I may have burned more calories
We have done all-inclusive resorts and home away as well. The Venetian delivers somewhere in the middle. There is no food or bar on the resort(of which we knew going in) but who needs 6 meals a day like you get with an all-inclusive anyway. With a fully stocked kitchen meals were easy and clean up a breeze with the dishwasher. Plus the daily housekeeping was top notch. Our room(s) were cleaned daily and our housekeeper even emptied the dishwasher as part of her daily routine. So making light meals were easy and allowed us to make healthy choices!
We spent our days mostly enjoying the beautiful beach on Grace Bay. This is the finest beach in my opinion and I have extensive Caribbean experience. I must say; we were glad we stayed and very sad to leave.
Thank you Colleen and Ornella for ensuring that all guests are having a wonderful stay at the lovely Venetian!
