Living it up in Turks and Caicos

By Kenda Blum

In April my family took off to the beautiful beaches of Turks and Caicos. We landed in Providenciales, or more commonly known as “Provo” which covers an area of 38 miles and is the most developed island in Turks and Caicos.

Surrounded by beautiful white sand beaches, Provo has been ranked “Best Beach” by Conde’ Nast magazine and by the World Travel Awards for several years running.

We stayed in Grace Bay at the Gansevoort Hotel which is a sleek boutique property unlike any other resort I have been to. It is a small modern beachfront retreat which boasts stunning ocean views.

The Gansevoort Pool

Unlike its neighbour Beaches Resort – the Gansevoort is a quiet resort with one pool, two restaurants and never feels busy. You can always get a lounge chair, you can always get a table at the restaurant and the service is top notch.

We rented a car for our trip so we could come and go as we please (not necessary though) – and explore the tiny island. It took a couple of days to get used to driving on the left but after a couple of near misses we were driving like the locals.


It is true T+C is not cheap. But once there we visited the local IGA stocked our fridge with the necessities like, wine, beer and appies : ) but ate out every meal as there is some great dining on the island (minimum dinner tab was $300 US)

If you are looking for an all inclusive – non-stop action resort the Gansevoort is not for you, but if you want to relax, enjoy a good book while drinking champagne in your beach pod stay here.

Our kids (8 and 10) had a fantastic time paddle boarding, snorkelling and going out on the hobie (all included in your stay).

When you visit be sure to take a cruise with the Caicos Dream Tours – great way to see more of the island, dive for conch and snorkel in one of the best reefs in the world.

I was there again in October for a much different trip with my girlfriends!
The perfect destination for a girls getaway or a romantic vacation for two.
