Turks & Caicos – Grace Bay Club


My trip to the Turks & Caicos Islands was nothing short of spellbinding. Short but totally sweet, I stayed for two days on the island of Providenciales which afforded me the luxury of a stay at Grace Bay Club, a wander along some truly serene beaches, superb food and an iconic activity or two. If you’re wondering what I got up to you, wonder no more!

Sunny most days of the year, Turks & Caicos enjoys warm waters, cool sea breezes and an average daily temperature of 83° F (28° C). The Turks & Caicos Islands is a British Crown Colony, and the official language is English. However, the U.S. dollar is the official currency

Grace Bay Club

The Grace Bay Club is on the island of Providenciales at the western end of the Turks & Caicos archipelago, which is located just south of the Bahamas. Easy to get to, the Grace Bay Club is a short 15 minutes from Providenciales International Airport.

Grace Bay Club has 82 spacious suites featuring oceanfront views. There are four categories of accommodations — The Hotel, The Villas, The Penthouses and The Estate — each with its own unique personality

If you dream of a powdery white sand beach…then you have certainly found the paradise of all your fantasies at Grace Bay Club! The resort is located on an immaculate beachfront and it was the first luxury all-suite hotel in the Turks & Caicos Islands (aka TCI).

The Beach

Widely recognized as a luxury resort with an enviable level of class, Grace Bay Club sits on 12 miles of its own glorious beach, the largest stretch for any of the resorts in the Caicos.

The expansive stretch of white sand beach against the turquoise waters of Grace Bay, provides the place to watch the sun rise and set. The colors were just amazing!

The Estate

With every suite and villa offering panoramic views, this was the perfect space for a little getaway.

Blogger Bella Bucchiotti of xoxoBella.com shares about her trip to Turks & Caicos where she stayed at the Grace Bay Club Resort.

We stayed in The Estate which had 4 bedrooms and a spacious main living area with a full kitchen. PLUS, we had a private plunge pool right outside our patio door!

Just Relax

Since having trouble with my passport on the way here (stay tuned for another blog post on that ordeal) and several flight delays and reschedules later, you could say that a bit of relaxation was certainly well needed!

The Spa

Luckily, the Grace Bay Club is home to the Anani Spa, where you can pamper yourself with an array of treatments, as well as various spa and wellness packages. The therapists here are absolutely phenomenal and I left feeling utterly rejuvenated, minus a few persistent knots in my neck and peacefully happy.

The Pools

The spectacular 11-acre property has various pools to keep you refreshed…if you happen to get tired of the ocean. This pool, which makes for great photos, was my favorite!

To the Ocean!

The main draw of the Grace Bay Club is certainly its effortless visual and physical proximity to the beach. Massages, swimming in the pool or enjoying a meal at one of the seven dining options — all are accompanied by a glorious oceanfront setting, offering something for everyone.

As I only had two days here in TCI, that meant that one of the days was jam-packed with some amazing water activities. I was not complaining! Kayak. Paddleboard. Snorkel. Swim. Dive. The waters are blue, clear, gorgeous, and warm year-round so if you are like me you will want to be in the water as much as possible

Blogger Bella Bucchiotti of xoxoBella.com shares about her trip to Turks & Caicos where she stayed at the Grace Bay Club Resort.

A number of activities and excursions can be arranged during your stay, including scuba diving, fishing, boating, cruises, jet skiing, island tours and more. The perfect way to pack your day if you like to have an action packed vacation!

Island Vibes Tours

We booked excursions with Island Vibes Tours who took us to a shipwreck and on a paddle boarding and parasailing experience. With only a few of us on the boat, it meant that we got a service that felt personalized and guides that made us feel super comfortable with what to expect.

While we chose to go parasailing , the company offers plenty of other activities and packages, from snorkeling tours and boat diving to catamaran and other luxury packages.

La Famille Shipwreck

The La Famille shipwreck was phenomenal — as we got closer and closer, it was quite haunting but wonderfully mesmerizing! Due to Hurricane Frances in 2004, this ship broke free of its moorings and ended up in the Caribbean Sea where it now still remains for both boaters as a visual pinpoint and a main attraction of rusty remains just off of Providenciales.

Parasailing

Our parasailing experience took place in the vicinity of the La Famille shipwreck with awesome views back towards Long Bay Beach and the southeast side of Providenciales.

I couldn’t recommend Island Vibes Tours enough for any boat tours around the Turks & Caicos Islands. From budget to more luxurious, there’s an activity for anyone within the gorgeous turquoise waters of the islands and these are the people waiting to make that dream excursion come true.

Sadly, my two day trip to TCI came to a far quicker end than I would have liked — this place really is the stuff that dreams are made of and I would have stayed here forever if I could.

If you only have a short amount of time here, then I highly recommend booking some boat tours or excursions and staying at Grace Bay Club, due to its amazing proximity and even more amazing service!
