Looking for a perfect island escape? The Caribbean islands of Turks & Caicos define such a relaxed, laid-back destination. T&C’s beautiful Grace Bay Beach in Providenciales is known as one of the top beaches in the world. Here you’ll find the two Ocean Club Resorts – the original, opened in 1999, and the 4-star Ocean Club Resorts West built in 2003 – located within a mile of each other. You can “stay at one, play at both,” which lets you enjoy the two resorts via a convenient shuttle.

Ocean Club Resorts are luxury oceanfront villas literally just steps from the sand. That means you can be in your beach chair, with an umbrellaed cocktail in your hand in mere minutes. The properties have been recognized as Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Hotels and listed among the Top 500 Best Hotels in the World.

The condominium-style apartments range from cozy studios to spacious three-bedroom villas, appointed with all the amenities and comforts of home. These deluxe beachfront suites offer spacious accommodations with screened-in porches ideal for couples and families.

On-site amenities include three pools, poolside barbecues, and a convenience store. Indulge in a spa treatment at Spa Tropique to enjoy Swedish massages, hot stone and aromatherapy, facials, body scrubs, and other delightful skin treatments.

Enjoy beachfront yoga or get your daily workout in the fitness center. If you’re looking for a bit more activity, the resorts offer plenty of activities and onsite water sports including sailing, snorkeling, paddle boarding and ocean kayaking.

See more of the island as you bike around town with complimentary bikes or paddleboards and kayaks. Live music, rum punch party, and tons of water activities add to the fun. Or just relax with a tropical drink on the sun-kissed beach under one of their signature pink umbrellas.

Both resorts offer casual beach cafes serving the island’s popular conch fritters and some of the best grouper fish tacos. You’ll definitely want to plan a happy hour at the cafe for the most amazing sunset views. Despite being oceanfront resorts, you can get all dolled up at night for fine dining at Ocean Club’s Opus Wine Bar, an alfresco steakhouse and seafood bar with an extensive wine selection. The Ocean Club West Solana Teppanyaki and Sushi Bar serves some of the island’s best Asian food.
