Gansevoort TURKS & CAICOS
By: Kristen Oliveri
It’s summer, and you might be starting to look at vacation spots. It’s time to get away from the city for just a little while, take a break off work. But where do you go? Do you go somewhere colder to escape the heat? Or maybe you’d prefer to go somewhere more exotic, somewhere vastly different from the urban jungle.
This summer, you should consider flying out to the Turks and Caicos Islands. An archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean and just southeast of the Bahamas, these islands are the perfect New York escape. From luxury to outdoor adventure, you’ll be blown away by the islands’ beauty and activities. If you’re looking for the ultimate Turks and Caicos experience, there’s only one place you should stay: The Gansevoort Turks + Caicos. Overlooking the famed Grace Bay, this luxury hotel and property are indulgence itself, mixing simple and natural beauty with an urban chic feel and design. With 91 guestrooms, including 32 suites and 4 penthouses, the Gansevoort offers incredible accommodation for everyone, each room boasting ocean and Grace Bay views. Enjoy scrumptious seasonal fare that reflect the exotic and fresh flavors of Asia and the Caribbean their alfresco Stelle restaurant that overlooks the pool or enjoy fresh seafood caught locally at the romantic candle lit Zest overlooking the beach.
When it comes to beaches, it’s no wonder Turks and Caicos continuously wins the title of the World’s best beaches. Think powdery white sand that feels like flour between your toes, with calm warm crystal waters that vary between pale to deep aquamarine shades. In the morning hours you may catch a family of friendly sea turtles or stingrays swimming up to shore to greet guests or choose one of the many complementary non-motorized water sport activities available for guests.
If you’re unable to choose between swimming in the ocean or swimming in Grace Bay, the luxury resort gives you a third option: with a 7,000 square foot, infinity pool, you just might find it impossible to even leave the Gansevoort property! The resort also offers a wide array of spa services, as well as sunset yoga.So if you’re looking to get away or trying to find a perfect spot for your honeymoon (this pretty much being the perfect romantic getaway spot), book your tickets to the Turks and Caicos Islands and experience the dream that is the Gansevoort!
