Fodor's Expert Review The Somerset
Princess Dr., Grace Bay, Providenciales, TKCA 1ZZ, Turks and Caicos Islands
This luxury resort has the wow factor, starting with the architecture and ending in your luxuriously appointed suite. What sets the Somerset apart is that it's more focused on your comfort and enjoyment than on attracting a celebrity clientele. A laid-back unpretentiousness means you don't have to dress up to go to the pool—an infinity-edge dipping zone at the end of a 138-foot reverse-current lap pool with underwater speakers. Spanish turquoise tiles make it a centerpiece that sparkles; at night it looks as if it's lighted by stars. From studios to five-bedroom suites and villas, all accommodations are equipped with such extras as a plasma TV, an Xbox, wine chillers, and all Viking appliances, including a washer and dryer for your convenience. The Residences are multistory town homes with 15-foot ceilings in the living rooms; Stirling House all have ocean and pool views. The Estate Villas are the most stunning, with cathedral ceilings and private hot tubs outside on the balconies. The red-tile roofs and oversize balconies complement the turquoise ocean beautifully, and the beachfront is one of the best sections of Grace Bay. The resort boasts complimentary kids' club activities; two excellent restaurants, the Pavilion and LunaSea; and a Teona Spa—their second location, with full spa services including a romantic couples massage room.
