Turks and Caicos is having a moment right now. Sunny weather, beaches for days and lush, secluded accommodations are just a few reasons why this Caribbean island is topping people’s vacay destination list. Situated on well-known Grace Bay Beach (considered one of the best beaches in the world), Wymara Resort and Villas is the go-to property for those in need of a relaxing, restorative experience.
Upon entering this boutique resort, guests are greeted by sleek, scenic views from the open-air lobby and 7,000-square-foot infinity pool lined with palm trees and floating island pods. The hospitality here is unmatched, with concierge personnel checking in travelers and pouring complimentary welcome cocktails crafted with locally distilled rum. Guests are then escorted to their suite and given a thorough walk-through of the space.
Wymara has 55 studios, 32 suites and four penthouses as well as villa accommodations, with all suites, penthouses and villas boasting ocean vistas. Among the impressive amenities are Gaggenau appliances, spa tubs with water falling from the ceiling, and turndown service complete with sweet treat (my personal favorite).
A short drive away are the Wymara luxury villas. Do yourself a favor and stay here. Overlooking the southern shore of Turtle Tail, these breathtaking accommodations designed by Coast Architects are truly amazing. Standout features include over-water swim platforms (hello, Instagram photo op), private oceanfront infinity pools, floor-to-ceiling windows and fire pit areas. Villa guests are well taken care of, with private transfers to and from the airport, an onsite manager, personalized concierge service, and 24/7 security. Looking for more? Private chef services and fitness classes are also available. It’s no wonder the resort counts celebrities like Drew Barrymore among its fans.
Everything you need for the perfect getaway is conveniently located on property. Signature restaurants Stelle and Zest dish up delicious bites. Pink Bar (quite literally an all-pink bar) sits on the sands of Grace Bay Beach, serving rosé, blush Champagne and color-coordinated cocktails. The spa is a quiet escape featuring killer massages, outdoor showers and Eminence organic skincare products. There’s also an onsite gym as well as an open-air studio offering yoga, barre, Pilates and more.
If luxury villas and the best beach in the world aren’t convincing enough, Turks and Caicos boasts an impressive 350 days of sunshine a year. What are you waiting for?
