Feeling like a private club, this resort is on one of the most beautiful beaches in Turks and Caicos, and you can choose from the 12 oceanfront rooms, the one cottage, or one of the private homes around the island. This is the place to de-stress, with no phones, no TVs, no air-conditioning (in all but two rooms), no worries. The charm of this resort, which was built in the 1970s, is that it never changes. The simple beachfront rooms and cottage, most of the staff, and what is perhaps the world's smallest airport (in truth, a gazebo with thatched roof) have all stayed pretty much the same over the years. Once a week during the winter months, you can drive your golf cart to the airstrip for Drive-In Movie Night. The 2.5-mile (4-km) stretch of beach is deserted, and instead of roads, you find nature trails and sun-dappled paths that crisscross the island, which can be explored by bike or on foot. Here you'll feel not isolated, but part of a small community. There’s a dining hall next
to the pool where guests meet at mealtime—or at the bar. The food's excellent, with fresh seafood, and delicious cakes and tarts served at lunch, dinner, and afternoon tea. For breakfast, you can choose from their continental cold cereals and baked goods or order hot items to dine alfresco around the pool. All meals are included in the rates, but alcoholic beverages are not. Guests are mostly overstressed executives, mature couples, and honeymooners; a large percentage are repeat visitors. Children over 12 are always welcome, but those between 6 and 12 are allowed only in June and July.
