The Best of the Best 2003: Hotels - Grace Bay Club

  • Maryann Hammer

With only 21 expansive suites, no children, a new European spa, and an endless stretch of white beach and striking turquoise water, Grace Bay Club on the island of Providenciales in the Caribbean’s Turks and Caicos Islands offers all the luxury of a large hotel or resort, but in a peaceful, intimate environment.

You can receive a massage on your private balcony or stretch out on the sand and savor gentle trade winds, tropical drinks, and sorbet delivered by attentive waiters. Those who feel more ambitious can opt to play tennis, windsurf, kayak, sail, or golf on the nearby 18-hole championship course, where flamingos coexist with duffers.
