Enjoy Your Own Private Villa Just Steps from the Beach in the Turks & Caicos

There’s a reason celebrities choose Grace Bay Beach on the Turks & Caicos for their luxury travel escapes. Okay, maybe there are multiple reasons - the powdery white sand beaches, the serene turquoise waters, the laid-back vibe of the island, or maybe it’s the luxury oceanfront resorts. 

Ocean Club Resorts on Providenciales has managed to tap into all of those features, offering guests luxury beachfront villas literally just steps from the ocean in a lush, peaceful retreat. The properties have been recognized as Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Hotels and listed among the Top 500 Best Hotels in the World. 

Whether you’re headed to Grace Bay for a romantic escape, a girlfriends getaway or a family vacation, you’ll appreciate Ocean Club Resorts condominium-style apartments that range from cozy studios to spacious three-bedroom villas. All are privately owned and exceptionally appointed with all the luxuries and comforts of home. You may find yourself “living” on your private balcony with views of the beach, pool or the resort’s lush gardens.

Whether you choose to stay at the original Ocean Club or the more modern Ocean Club West, you’ll have access to the numerous amenities at both properties.

If lounging on the beach with a tropical drink in hand is on your agenda, you’ll be in the perfect spot as both resorts are situated on Grace Bay’s most beautiful stretch of beach. 

If you’re looking for a bit of activity and adventure, you can take advantage of the onsite water sports including sailing, snorkeling to ocean kayaking. There’s golf (at the nearby Provo Golf Club), tennis (onsite at Ocean Club West), fitness rooms and an ultra-relaxing spa at Ocean Club.

Dining at Ocean Club Resorts

Both resorts offer casual beach cafes serving the island’s popular conch fritters and grouper fish tacos, paired perfectly with a local beer from Turk's Head Brewery. Grab a seat at the cafe in the early evening (and grab a cocktail while you’re at it) to experience one of the most memorable sunsets you’ll ever see over Grace Bay.

At Ocean Club, the Opus Wine Bar menu is a high-end steakhouse and seafood bar with an extensive wine selection. You can dine alfresco under the stars. 

Ocean Club West features beachfront deck dining at the upscale Solana Teppanyaki and Sushi Bar where you’ll experience some of the best views and best seafood in the Caribbean. 

If you choose to leave this paradise, you’ll have plenty of options for adventures. Enjoy kayaking among the mangroves where you’ll see turtles and lemon sharks beneath you. Take a luxury sail and enjoy snorkeling in the clear turquoise waters and walk to a sandbar that’s perfect for shelling. There’s also yoga on the beach and some great culinary spots as well, including the island’s ever-popular Da Conch Shack.
