This destination offers some of the most beautiful beaches in the world! Located just south of the Bahamas, it’s an easy flight from Detroit via Atlanta. The island people are warm, friendly and thrilled to have visitors after the COVID draught.
Grace Bay in the Providenciales is the preferred area to stay at and there are a number of 4 & 5 star resorts to choose from. We enjoyed The Sommerset on Grace Bay. This multimillion-dollar resort is recommended by Condé Nast Johansens' prestigious luxury hotel guide, and is also a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World. At The Somerset, you can choose from 3 distinct accommodation types as you discover your place in paradise on the islands of Turks and Caicos. There are only 53 rooms and they are huge – starting at 1,400SF up to 3,200SF. Amenities include two freshwater pools, watersports, spa signing privileges with the Palms Spa, two restaurants and a fitness center.
There are a number of restaurants in the area. The Bay Bistro at the Sibonne Beach Hotel was recommended and just a short walk down the beach. We had dinner here one night. Hemingway’s Restaurant & Bar at The Sands is also excellent.
We set up three rounds of golf at Provo Golf Club www.provogolfclub.com with the Director of golf. Fun course and the service was excellent – only 10 minutes from the hotel.
