With so many beautiful islands in the Caribbean, it could be difficult to decide which one is my favorite, but in that search it’s easy to determine that Turks & Caicos Islands ranks at the top of my list. I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to be a guest at the new Gansevoort Hotel on Grace Bay Beach in Provo, Turks & Caicos Islands and found the hotel and the island to have the perfect blend of activity, relaxation, and fun! With beautiful Grace Bay Beach stretching for miles, amazingly clear turquoise waters, and first-class resorts, there’s nothing more one can ask for in an island destination.
I had the pleasure of staying at the fabulous new Gansevoort Hotel, which is nothing short of spectacular! From the ‘street-side’ it’s an unimposing structure that might not strike someone as a luxury resort, but once inside you quickly get that ‘vibe’ and find out just how special it is. The hotel has a small reception area that leads out to a perfectly-positioned infinity edge pool with plenty of ‘cozy’ loungers. The 91 suites are in 3 buildings that surround the pool, and the design throughout the resort and the units is “ultra-chic” and modern. What I thought was one of the nicest features of my one bedroom suite (and there were MANY!) were the full glass-panel walls of the full-size balcony, which allows for a fully unobstructed oceanview from both the bedroom and living room areas of the unit. Of course the suite was filled with great gadgets (Bose Soundock, electronic controls for window blinds, modern appliances and fixtures, 2 flat-screen TV’s), wonderful amenities, and a soaking tub in the bathroom that fills from a faucet/hole in the ceiling!
