Hotel Pool no people day at Grace Bay Club, Turks & Caicos, Caribbean

Grace Bay Club

Set on 11 acres of beachfront, this sprawling property is composed of three clusters of Spanish-style Mediterranean architecture. The heart of Grace Bay Club is the so-called Hotel, with 21 guest suites in a mansion. The Villas sits to the west and features larger suites with multiple connecting room options. The eastern-most hotel area, the Estate, functions as a hotel-within-a-hotel and offers the most service and privacy. All rooms, no matter whether they are in the Hotel, Villas or Estate, boast ocean views.

There are 38 family-friendly residences set in four-story Villas buildings, which were the first to receive full soft renovations by celebrity designer Thom Felicia. His style is sophisticated and fashionable, picking up colors and patterns from the Turks & Caicos beaches and historic architecture. The one-, two- and three-bedroom suites are spacious—the smallest measures 600 square feet, the largest Penthouse is 4,800 square feet—and come with state-of-the-art open kitchens (a private chef and pre-arrival grocery shopping can be arranged) and washer-dryer units. Priced starting at $1.25 million, they sold out before construction was even complete, and all are now in the rental pool of Grace Bay Club. The family-friendly side of the resort has its own pool, restaurant and swim-up bar.

The adults-only Hotel area, set in the oldest of the resort's buildings, does not allow guests under the age of 16 and is the most romantic option on property. The accommodations, which all feature kitchenettes, are spacious, sophisticated in style and range from junior suites to two-bedroom options. In front of this section sits Infiniti Bar and Infiniti Restaurant, as well as a chic lounge area set around an outdoor fire pit.

The Estate, with 22 rooms including 4,500 square-foot, four-bedroom residences, has its own pool, swath of beach and casual dining outlet, Krave. Updated by Thom Felicia, these units feel airy, chic and stylish, and many boast large terraces with stunning ocean views.

While the Grace Bay Club is home to a nice spa, those looking for a treat should book a massage at the stunning Palms, just a short drive away.

In spite of, or perhaps because of, its separation between adults and children, Grace Bay Club has long been known as one of the most family-friendly resorts in the Caribbean. The staff at the kids’ club is energetic, fun and can take kids on tours such as visiting nearby nature reserves and snorkeling excursions, though camping on the property is among the most popular activities (complete with a campfire and s’mores, of course).

Residences, located to the west near Wymara Resort, are available and an ideal choice for larger families or groups of friends looking for privacy. Contact the Indagare bookings team for more information on the beachfront villas.

Pine Cay

Now part of Relais & Chateaux, this intimate private island retreat has a low-key, old school Caribbean vibe, and a two-mile-long beach.

Lobby at The Palms Turks and Caicos at Turks & Caicos, Caribbean

The Palms Turks and Caicos

The Regent Palms’ four-story towers feature seventy-two suites—arranged like a horseshoe around a sprawling, free-style infinity pool—and are made of Caribbean coral stone, giving the property a distinctly Anglo-Caribbean feel, which continues in the spacious guest rooms. There’s the typical dark-wood furniture, including mahogany king-size beds and armoires studded with brass buttons. Floors are smooth marble, walls are painted white or cheerful pastels; and ceiling fans, wicker chairs and tasseled curtains add old-world British accents. The inspiration here is the style of British theater designer Oliver Messel, who is most famous for his villas on Mustique.

Of the Palms’ seventy-two rooms, only forty-eight face the ocean, an important detail to know when you book. For the best, uninterrupted views, ask for an oceanfront suite, which has terraces furnished with terry-cloth-covered double daybeds so you can take in the turquoise-drenched views. If you’re traveling with kids, it pays to upgrade to a one- or two-bedroom; each comes with a kitchen with Viking appliances and a Nespresso maker, as well as a washer and dryer. The oceanview rooms are behind the pool, so you’ll see the buzzing poolside action before you see the sea. For the ultimate splurge, there are eight sumptuous Penthouses, all three-bedrooms. Throughout the property are seemingly countless connecting options, ideal for extended families or groups of friends traveling together.

Most guests seem to prefer the infinity pool to the beach, though some couples take advantage of the adults-only loungers on an elevated deck between the pool and the beach. When I stayed here, most guests, including tons of families, seemed to prefer the infinity pool to the beach, though some couples took advantage of the adults-only loungers on an elevated deck between the pool and the beach. When the resort is full, scoring one of the more desirable pool spots, especially one of the five so-called pods (large round mattresses topped with pillows), can be tricky. The sunken, poolside restaurant Plunge, which also has a swim-up bar popular with young guests who order smoothies, serves light lunches. There are plenty of child-friendly options, and a limited menu is available right at the beach and poolside. For dinner, the fine-dining restaurant Parallel 23, in the Palms’ pretty courtyard, draws lots of guests from other resorts. Also gathered around the courtyard is a collection of small boutiques, including a gourmet food store—a nice touch—where you can stock up on snacks like Terra chips, crackers and pâté and German chocolates.

What really sets the hotel aside is its 25,000-square-foot Regent Palms Spa with a serene reflecting pool, stand-alone treatment villas and a row of adjacent chaise lounges under draped linen curtains. If you’re a spa junkie who wants to stay in the Grace Bay area, there’s no other facility that comes close.
