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've been coming to the Windsong since it opened and as always, we had an amazing vacation. The resort is welcoming and relaxed and the beach is absolutely unsurpassed. It's great seeing the same staff year to year and they are always friendly and accommodating. It was exactly the break we needed and we are already looking forward to coming back!
Our family of 5 had a wonderful spring break getaway at the Windsong resort! We stayed in a two bedroom ocean view room. There was a large kitchen and living area for those that prefer to cook their own meals. The patio opens fully to the ocean views. The resort staff was extremely helpful and prompt with any needs or questions. The on-site restaurant was adequate, but there are also other restaurants nearby that are fabulous! The beach was cozy and butlers are on hand to bring food and drinks beach side. My absolute favorite bartender was Jeff! He made the most amazing cocktails for me, and adjusted them to my taste preference (I’m a Texas girls who loves a spicy cocktail). Amazing snorkeling was literally right off our beach. The water was pristine as well as the accommodations. We loved our resort so much we really didn’t feel the need to schedule extra excursions. We will definitely return sooner than later!
Windsong was very nice. The upgraded room was very spacious and immaculately clean. The beach was great and reef is right in front of the resort. Snorkeling was amazing. The only negative was that there was only one restaurant on the grounds. But If you do have eat there, having dinner on the dunes is a must. It was very quiet, romantic and the food was good.
This resort exceeded our expectations from the moment we walked through the door. We were greeted with drinks and cookies then treated to a personalized tour of the facility by Khalil, one of the resort butlers, who was an indispensable resource to us throughout our stay. Not only is the Windsong Resort on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world, it also has fantastic snorkeling right off the beach. We saw rays and turtles in addition to beautiful tropical fish. It was the perfect setting for my daughter to learn how to snorkel for the first time. We did decide to venture out a bit and do a fun snorkeling tour which included a stop on nearby Iguana Island (lots of roaming iguanas, sand, and the bluest water I’ve ever seen) and also went parasailing (great suggestions by Khalil). We also took a fifteen minute walk down the beach to the Thursday night Fish Fry for local food, music, and craft shopping which was very convenient to the resort. The restaurants at the resort were composed of the lobby coffee bar, the main cafe by the pool where we ate most of our meals, and the beautiful tables by the beach for breakfast or fancy dinners. The coffee bar was the hidden gem where Jeff could make you a coffee, cocktail, smoothies, salads or sandwiches, all the while engaging you in great conversation and laughs. We never had a chance to try other restaurants on the island since we loved the food at the Windsong so much! We also had massages at the spa which were lovely. I could go on an on but it’s safe to say that we will definitely be back! I highly recommend.
Five night stay in a two bedroom oceanfront suite. Beautiful views. Spacious, immaculate suite with large balcony. We loved the pool and beach and the quiet uncrowded feel of the resort. The entire facility was very clean and well kept and the grounds were beautifully landscaped. The employees were friendly and welcoming. Special recognition goes to the resort butlers Derron and Khalil who worked hard and were very helpful in making plans and reservations for outings and dining. Housekeeping also deserves recognition for thoroughly cleaning rooms and keeping the common areas of resort spotless. We loved our stay and hope to return in the future.
