Named for its location on Grace Bay, the longest and most popular beach on Providenciales (the main tourist island in the Turks and Caicos), the Grace Bay Club commands a dilly of a location. That’s because it was the first truly upscale property on the island, and the owners could pretty much open shop wherever they pleased. What pleased them was a broad swath of talcum sand fronting tranquil sea. They built far enough back to ensure lots of privacy, but close enough to the waves so that guests could dash in for a pre-breakfast dip. Originally run as a condo, the resort now spreads across a trio of buildings that shelter a variety of suites and rooms well suited to multi-generational weddings with families, kids, college friends, and grandparents in tow.
If Grace Bay Club didn’t invent the flower-festooned wedding arch on the beach, they certainly perfected it. The catering and weddings manager will put together a solid team of pros (florist, musicians, photographer) and walk you through a wide choice of ceremony spots (beach, gazebo, sailboat, even an offshore isle) and party places (infinity pools, tropical gardens, the grill deck, or right on the sand). And many of the suites have terraces large enough for small gatherings.
This is one of the Caribbean’s handier wedding resorts: Direct flights from the U.S. wing into Provo, and Grace Bay is just 15 minutes away.
Keep in mind
You’re within walking distance of restaurants, craft shops, beach bars, even a couple of truly budget-minded hotels. Newer, flashier resorts have opened in the Turks in the last decade, but none can boast such a user-friendly location.
