There’s a straight shot of the white sand beach from the open-air reception area at this pretty boutique hotel, consistently ranked as one of the best in Providenciales thanks to its stylish, modern décor, friendly service and prime position along one of the less busy stretches of Grace Bay Beach. The hotel’s comfortable, condo-style accommodation options run the gamut from studios to four bedrooms, each with fashion-forward, earth-toned décor, comfy beds, and room to spread out. West Bay is a particularly perfect choice for families thanks to kitchens or kitchenettes that make it easy to dine in during your stay. And, while the relaxed vibe makes it easy to unplug, super-fast WiFi means you’ll have no problem staying connected if need be. The hotel has two restaurants: Noodle Bar + Kitchen features lunch and dinner menu with an Asian influence (think Thai chicken and glass noodle salad) and is also where the breakfast buffet is served each morning. Stix restaurant is on the beach, where light local nibbles like cracked conch and jerk-roasted corn on the cob are served on sticks alongside tropical drinks. Hit the small but well-equipped fitness center for a workout or walk over the little bridge from the resort to the sand and go for a long walk down Grace Bay, one of the Caribbean’s best beaches.
In the Area
Swing your clubs at the Provo Golf Club; this challenging and beautifully landscaped course is the only championship option in Turks and Caicos (look out for flamingos in the lakes). Or hit the water with a sail/snorkel excursion with Ocean Outback Adventure, where an afternoon aboard the glass-bottomed catamaran includes a trip to an old pirate cave. Hungry? Hit Da Conch Shack. It’s a bit on the touristy side, but it’s a must for mollusk-lovers with dishes like conch salad, conch fritters, conch chowder and more. For a gourmet dinner head to the glamorous restaurant Parallel 23 for a romantic alfresco setting, a state-of-the-art display kitchen and boutique wine list.
How to Get There
I never thought I would continue to visit the same place - over and over . . . But, when it comes to relaxation, great weather, upscale amenities, and the nicest staff - including Charles, Captain Spice (Richie), Jeffrey, William, Reginald, and Demarius and Kayonn at breakfast . . . no place else compares. You can't go wrong at WBC. I miss them all already. I am sorry they eliminated their spa. That was the only disappointment. We missed Mala. I hope to see you ALL again one day! PS - note to West Bay Club - if a guest lets you know they are there to celebrate a birthday - it would be nice if you would acknowledge it in some way.
My family first came here in 2011. I believe the resort was fairly new at the time. We just returned from our second trip to the island and stayed at the West Bay again. I thought about staying at another resort, just for a different experience, but am glad I decided to book here again. I think West Bay has one of the best beaches in the Grace Bay area. It is much wider than at other resorts and does not have a crowded feel at all. We were always able to easily get chairs at the beach or the pool. The staff at the beach is great. They greet you with a smile, and are always pleasant and helpful. Our one bedroom, luxury oceanfront suite was lovely and well maintained. Other pluses are free breakfast, free use of various water sports equipment, and close proximity to snorkeling at Bight Reef. It’s only a short walk down the beach. If/when I return to Provo, I’ll probably stay at the West Bay again!
Just had lunch with my son in the lobby restaurant/bar at West bay club today.
It's not a conventional lobby bar but rather just past the open lobby next to an open air swimming pool en route to the beach.
While functionally open air, it is perfectly shaded by the building to the South and is a most pleasant spot to while away an hour or so on a delicious lunch.
The bar service was fast and efficient. Though lacking my usual tipple of Captain Morgan, the bartender immediately offered Mount Gay or Appleton, either of which is a most acceptable alternative. My colleague went for Presidente light, which was served ice cold and in the bottle as requested.
The lunch menu appears quite short on a narrow laminated card but it holds some real treasures.
I opted for the Mahi sliders with fries and a summer squash salad-juicy, perfectly cooked and nicely presented. My companion had the pulled pork sandwich which he said was awesome.
The cooking is actually done in a kitchen further away toward the beach but that did not interfere with the quality, heat or time of service of our food.
At $36 for lunch for two, well prepared and served in a relaxed ambiance in the shade there is no room for complaint.
Service charge is held to 10% leaving room for a small addition to express appreciation to the staff.
At these prices I will be back to explore the rest of the menu.
This is not a new venue, though it appears to be under new management. The question then is, how did we miss it for so long?
Definitely worth a visit. Pencil it I for your next trip.
We just returned from a wonderful week at West Bay Club! Fantastic service, great accommodations, fabulous food and drink amid a glorious setting in a boutique-type hotel. Uncrowded part of Grace Bay and walkable to two great reefs for snorkeling. So many employees of West Bay Club provided great service, and I want to make some specific call outs for above and beyond efforts: Evanson as concierge, Taneisha and Ericka at the bar, Charles and Demario at the beach. Thanks for helping our family have a great vacation experience!
I had another great stay at the West Bay Club.
Our arrival to the Turks and Caicos was delayed for a few hours. We finally arrived at the resort at 0300. Renaldo greeted us and made sure we were all set for our visit.
Upon entering my room, I found a late night/early morning snack of a sandwich and assorted sliced fruit!! What a great touch and consideration. That certainly hit the spot!
Many thanks to the staff at the West Bay Club.
Renaldo, Kevantai, Kativsca, Evanson, Junior, Johnie, Dedrick, Tanisha, are some of the staff members that made the visit enjoyable.
I will be back in the future, and looking forward to it.
