Opened in 1993, Grace Bay Club is Turks and Caicos’ original luxury benchmark. With essentially three different resorts offering three distinct accommodation styles, this 82-room beachfront property continues to raise the bar with lots of popular dining options, a 5,000-square foot spa, an impressive kids' club, and three pristine infinity-edge pools.
The original luxury resort on Providenciales continues to set the standard with a posh beach scene and amazing grounds
Grace Bay Club’s breezy sophistication comes in many forms. Whether at the airy lobby with white furniture, white walls, rich wood accents, and lamps repurposed from glass buoys, in the zen garden outside your Anani Spa treatment room, or at one of three serene pools, a feeling of understated exclusivity emanates.
With just 82 guest rooms spread across three oceanfront buildings, Grace Bay Club is the quintessential beach resort. Each building’s pool stretches as close to the beach as building codes allow, and infinity edges blur the distinction between resort and sea. Each pool offers lots of lounging options -- like the super-luxe private cabanas and breezy modern daybeds at the Estate Pool -- and cool details, like the glass-enclosed edge of the Hotel Pool.
It’s hard to imagine wanting to leave such stunning pools, especially with dining options and swim-up bars at arm’s length from each. However, Grace Bay Club’s beachfront is one of the finest along the world-renowned Grace Bay. Red daybeds and crisp white umbrellas dot more than 1,000 yards of one of the widest stretches of beach in the area. The beach service is doting, and tons of free water sports equipment is available.
Such perfection, of course, comes at a price, and Grace Bay Club is one of the most expensive on the island. And the spending doesn't end after you've booked your stay; many guests shell out for extras like exotic treatments at the Asian-inspired Anani Spa, inventive (and pricey) cocktails at the Infiniti Bar, and expertly prepared entrees at Anacaona.
A Turks and Caicos original, Grace Bay Club enjoys one of the largest stretches of the beach
Grace Bay Club was one of the first high-end resorts to come to Providenciales, and today it still lays claim on one of the widest and longest strips of the bay’s powdery sand. Noticeable for its red cabanas and white umbrellas, the resort’s 1,100-foot beachfront is arguably one of the best. The resort is just around the corner from shopping and restaurants, and a short drive away from the Provo Golf Club.

The resort’s impressive dining scene -- including a casual grill, a swim-up and sit-down pool bar, an “infinity-edge” bar, a poolside café and bar, a trendy lounge, and a sophisticated dinner venue -- will inevitably be a part of any traveler’s visit, whether they're staying at Grace Bay Club or not.
All three meals are served on the deck of the open-air Grill Rouge next to the Villa Pool. Nearby is the Rum Bar, which includes swim-up and sit-down drink and food service. At the Estate Pool, Krave is another option for quick meals and afternoon cocktails, with a small bar and several teak tables. In the center of it all is the newly completed Lounge, the elegant Anacaona dinner spot, and the beloved Infiniti Bar. Though something of a gimmick, this sleek 90-foot bar (the longest in the Caribbean) appears to stretch into the sea and draws crowds from all over the island.
