Opened in 2008, Windsong Resort takes things down a notch, promising barefoot, laid-back luxury. Twin four-story beige buildings house 50 units and front 435 feet of prime beachfront on world renowned Grace Bay. It’s only a few swim strokes from one of the best snorkeling spots on the island (Bight Reef), but don’t feel obligated to leave your lounge chair. Beach and pool attendants can bring water and chilled towels and even take food and beverage orders (Turks Head Lager, anyone?).
Bed & Bath
Windsong’s accommodations run the gamut from average Studios to the over-the-top detached, 2,400-square-foot Two-Bedroom Villa (complete with its own pool). Decor in all rooms and suites has nautical and island flair; paintings of lighthouses and rowboats hang on pastel yellow walls and goldenrod or lime-green sofas sit atop travertine flooring. If you’re vacationing with a large family or group of friends, it’s well worth splurging on the 4,480-square-foot Four-Bedroom Penthouse, which comes with a gourmet kitchen (it can be provisioned ahead of time), a wet bar, wicker ceiling fans and marble bathrooms with Bulgari toiletries and separate tubs and showers. Large corner sliding glass doors bring the outside in, but the private rooftop deck steals the show with yet another kitchen, a Jacuzzi and unbeatable views of Grace Bay.
The alfresco restaurant and subdued bar, JoJo’s Café, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, but you can up the romance factor by making reservations for a memorable meal at Dune, which has stunning water and sunset views. Wedged between these dining spots is the heated outdoor swimming pool, which features two waterfalls, partial glass walls and an underwater stereo. And if you want to catch a flick or belt out some tunes, the Havana Club hosts weekly movie and karaoke nights. There’s also a small 24-hour fitness center, and a spa with two treatment rooms, both with ocean views.
In the Area
The resort’s ideal location puts some of the island’s hottest restaurants within a short drive. Nab a table at the popular Coco Bistro and try such zesty dishes as rare blackened tuna with red Thai curry sauce, jasmine rice, mango chutney and buttered broccoli. Or ditch your pool lounger and trot along the beach on horseback; it’s one of the best ways to take in the backdrop of white sand and turquoise water. Riders of all skill levels can participate; long pants are strongly suggested. Feeling lucky? Try your hand at blackjack, craps, roulette and poker at the Casablanca Casino — you may just leave Turks and Caicos a little richer.
How to Get There
We loved our experience at this quant resort. The reception while checking in with Samantha was excellent including our tour with Darren. Beach side Larry and the other beach hands where accomadating us with our multiple water craft /snorkeling gear jaunts. Our waitress Alicia
was superb making my wife bday dinner very special. Our breakfast servers where our top notch also. The only negatives was the quality of the happy hour cocktails and lack of cushions on the beach chase. lounges
The Windsong treated me and my friend perfectly! It is the perfect smaller boutiquey resort in Turks and Caicos right on the reef. From the moment we got there we were greeted with the warmest welcome. The butlers, Derron and Kahlil, were truly spectacular. We felt so comfortable with them and they helped us book dinner reservations, excursions and a pleasure to talk to. I’d also like to shout out the bartender, Jeff, at the veranda who was beyond friendly and makes a mean drink. The rooms are very clean! We really had the best time and can’t wait to go back!
I have not been back to turks and Caicos in almost 20 years and because of the hurricane that destroyed st marteen I was looking for a suitable replacement
The Windsong is a beautiful laid back place
If you love the turquoise waters and white beach sand with great snorkeling
this is your next vacation
It’s pretty expensive but so is all of the hotels in this island
A breath taking place
My teenage daughter and I spent three nights at the Windsong in February, and overall we enjoyed our stay very much.
Pros: quiet, small resort toward the end of the strip of major resorts; clear water and great snorkeling right off of the beach (saw a turtle every time we snorkeled); loungers and shade always available at the beach; fantastic and friendly beach service by beach staff (especially Gustav!), bringing us bottled water, towels, arranging water sports and setting up cabanas; nicely appointed rooms and good housekeeping and cleanliness; resort butlers friendly and helpful; minimal to no noise from neighboring rooms or outside meant a relatively peaceful night's sleep
Cons: food was not very good - the included breakfast was disappointing (complimentary bottled water should be supplied to guests who cannot drink the complimentary juice or coffee, but I was told I would have to pay for it - seems silly since you are handing out complimentary bottled water a few feet away on the beach), and the food quality both for breakfast and lunch was not great (we did not eat dinner at the resort); waitstaff at the restaurant was not as friendly as the other staff at the hotel; there are not many restaurants within walking distance of the resort and taxis are pricey - a complimentary evening shuttle to town would be a nice addition; non-guest use of beach chairs playing music and drinking beer was a disappointment, and smoking by guests on the beach was bothersome; noisy air-conditioning system in the room turns on and off repeatedly; overall the price paid for the room was expensive although this seems to be the case in Turks and Caicos overall; hospitality suite for showering before departure was strange - located in the parking garage and there was a sewage smell coming from the constantly bubbling toilet as well as no hand soap by the sink
We enjoyed the quiet, peaceful atmosphere at the Windsong and the friendly staff, and would return to this resort if we return to the island! Next time we would rent a car, as even though the taxi service was prompt, the expense added up and the Windsong is not within walking distance of the downtown area.
This is my 3rd time in here and for sure I will come back. The place, Grace Bay, is a paradise by himself: beautiful beaches, turquoise calm waters & an average temperature year round. Which makes Windsong special is feel me like home, staff is very professional, butler services are great and makes your life easier and they called you by your name, all I can wait for a Boutique, not crowed hotel as I want.
Ocean front are very confortable and large suites with a great view, with all you need in your home, including full kitchen, side by side fridge, expresso coffe, dishwasher and laundry machinery, you can´t feel like you are not in home.
I took a 2 bedroom suite on first floor, cause i have small kids (5 & 7) so your beach/pool access is granted an easy because you can go straight from your balcony, 70 feet and you are in the beach, 30 and you at the pool, is what just living on the beach means for me.
If you like snorkeling you are in the best place of Provo, Windsong ocean front is just on a coral reef so you can snorkeling and see turtles, eagle and sting rays even nurse sharks or barracudas in between of lot of fishes directly from the beach of Windsong, no travel, no walk, just get into and swim orl see them from a crystal bottom kayak.
Windsong has many kayaks, paddleboards, even a Cat for sailing and are included for free.
Great time, magnificent place, great attentions, make us feel like home that what Windsong and Providenciales means for me and my familiy.
