Fodor's Expert Review Bohio Dive Resort

Pillory Beach, Grand Turk, Grand Turk TKCA 1ZZ, Turks and Caicos Islands See on Map

Divers are drawn to this newly updated, well situated, comfortable hotel, whose on-site dive shop means there's no wait for some of the world's best diving. Rooms are clean and simple with colorful island touches, the resort's restaurant is one of the best on the island, plus the resort is only a 15-minute walk to Front Street. You can relax with yoga sessions or hang with the locals. Saturday night is their weekly barbecue party, with roasted meats, live music, and dancing. The Ike and Donkey Beach Bar adds to the fun. If you're thinking of staying at Bohio, don't hesitate. They book up quickly.

YOU SHOULD KNOW This is an out-of-the-way dive destination resort, however if you are looking for comfortable lodgings on Grand Turk with great food service, then you don't have to be a diver to enjoy this accommodation.

room

All rooms at Bohio feature ocean views with just a few steps between your front door and the beauty of Pillory Beach. Rooms are newly renovated with either king-size or double beds, air conditioning, flat-screen TVs, and a mini-fridge or kitchenette. Be sure to make inquiries as to what is available prior to booking.

bathroom

As Bohio Dive Resort is newly refurbished, guests can anticipate bright, clean and modern facilities within each and every room. If you wish a tub rather than a shower, do inquire at time of booking to ensure that you are accommodated with your preference. Plush bath towels and a nice selection of products await

lobby

There is a small, lovely greeting area at the front of the Guanahani Restaurant in which guests are greeted and check-in takes place. Comfortable seating is available to set awhile after a long journey to Grand Turk prior to being escorted to your lodgings.

pool

A small pool is located on this property with a surrounding terrace for those that wish to take a break from the sea and sand.

YOU SHOULD KNOW The pool has been known to be closed at times.

dining

Bohio Dive Resortis a full service resort, with breakfast, lunch and dinner served on site daily at the Guanahani Restaurant & Bar, overlooking the soft sands and crystal clear waters of Pillory Bay. There is nothing "small island" about the cuisine served at the Bohio. The chef ensures that each and every night offers up something a little different, with dishes from various countries and cultures around the world. She also takes pride in offering cuisine made to order so that every palate or unique dietary requirement can be met. The Guanhani also features an extensive wine list for the discerning traveller, as well as coffees, cognacs, and Cuban cigars to make the evening complete.

drinking

The Ike & Donkey Beach Bar serves the Bohio's guests through the day and into the evening. There is also an indoor bar as part of the Guanahani Restaurant. Other options are a short drive away - or a long stroll along the ocean front.

LOCATION

Getting Around

Grand Turk is a fairly small island, therefore getting around is relatively easy and inexpensive. Car and scooter rentals are available, while cycling the entire island is also a possibility for the active visitor. The whole of Cockburn Town is easy to explore on foot, with rest stops along the waterfront. ATV and Segway tours are another way to get to see the main sights.

Restaurants

Meals are served at both the Ike and Donkey Beach Bar, tables scattered around the wooden deck oceanside or with feet in the sand, as well as on the terrace and under roof of the Guanahani Restaurant and Bar with its more formal atmosphere. Guests also have the option of wandering down the little laneway and into Cockburn Town to try the various little establishments dotted along the waterfront.

Bars

Guests and residents alike enjoy live music, a full range of specialty cocktails in addition to the every day favourites at the Ike & Donkey Beach Bar on site at the Bohio. Saturday night cranks it up a notch with a full beach BBQ and live band, an island favourite. You can expect everyone up and dancing, as they enjoy fresh catch or island jerk under the stars. In addition, there is an indoor bar as part of the Guanahani Restaurant.

WHY WE LIKE IT

The Bohio Dive Resort offers all the amenities featured at much larger resorts. With very comfortable accommodation alongside an excellent full service restaurant, a beach bar, and live entertainment set on one of the most beautiful beaches of Grand Turk, guests wish for not. Staying at Bohio means divers do not have to leave the property to enjoy world class diving right from their doorstep. All effort goes into enjoying every minute whilst on vacation.
