GRACE BAY CLUB EARNS TOP MARKS IN 2011 VIRTUOSO LIFE ‘BEST BEACH GETAWAY’ AWARDS

Luxury Resort Receives Top Rank in Awards Judged by Virtuoso Life Travel Advisors
 
Providenciales, Turks and Caicos – March 17, 2011 – Grace Bay Club was awarded the #1 spot in the Top 10 Beach Getaways in the March/April 2011 issue of Virtuoso Life, which are selected by the country’s top travel advisors.  The famed hotel is the only property in Turks and Caicos to be included on the prestigious list.
 
“These things don’t happen overnight,” says Nikheel Advani, Chief Operating Officer and Principal of Grace Bay Resorts. “Receiving such an honor is the culmination of hundreds and hundreds of handmade experiences that our staff continues to create for our guests. This truly puts Grace Bay Club in the same league as the big players such as the Four Seasons and Ritz-Carlton, which gives us great pride being an independently-owned, boutique resort.”
 
Perched on 11 acres of immaculate beachfront, Grace Bay Club was the first luxury hotel built in Turks and Caicos and has since set the bar for luxury resorts in the region. Founded in 1993, the storied all-suite boutique resort was purchased in 2001 and reintroduced into the luxury market after a $250 million renovation and expansion. A member of Leading Hotels of the World, Grace Bay Club offers guests a uniquely hands-on travel experience with a focus on luxury and service. A quiet haven for uninterrupted relaxation, the 82-suite resort is divided into two separate sections for discerning travelers of all tastes including: the adults-only Hotel at Grace Bay Club area with private restaurant, bars and swimming pool in addition to the family-friendly Villas at Grace Bay Club with their own restaurant, bar and pool. In February 2009, the resort welcomed The Estate at Grace Bay Club, a collection of 22 lavish residence style accommodations complete with a private infinity pool, poolside cabanas, personal concierge service and gourmet restaurant Krave.
 
In February 2011, both jetBlue and Continental Airlines announced direct flight routes to Providenciales, Turks and Caicos from New York City, Boston and Newark. 
 
Other top marks awarded to the property in recent years include Conde Nast Traveler’s Reader’s Choice ‘Best in the World’ Award in 2010, and Travel + Leisure’s ‘500 World’s Best Hotels’ Award in 2010 and 2011.
