Fodor's Expert Review Beach House Turks and Caicos
218 Lower Bight Rd., The Bight, Providenciales, TKCA 1ZZ, Turks and Caicos Islands
On the quieter, western end of Grace Bay, this intimate all-suites resort has a unique Caribbean air. The buildings have a colonial-style feel about them with lovely gingerbread trim. It manages to balance an aura of exclusivity with a warm and friendly vibe, courtesy of the helpful staff . All 21 suites strike a slightly playful tone, from their pastel interiors to the fact that the rooms have no numbers—just names. Check out the exotic coconut room scent, too! Spacious balconies are a definite plus at this quiet retreat; you'll enjoy views over acres of natural dunes, as well as one of the widest stretches of Grace Bay, accessed through a stroll along the weathered wooden boardwalk reminiscent of childhood vacations. This is a spot where you may feel most free to run and dance. Alternatively, there are five units set in two-story cottage-style buildings with garden and pool views; the pool and restaurant are set behind their three-floor hotel-style building, as is the gym and spa base; treatments may be indoors or experienced alfresco. This gorgeous boutique hotel is one of only a few on Provo where the units are not privately owned, and since it doesn't have to accommodate condo owners, you are more likely to get a room request honored.
