The former Gansevoort Turks + Caicos has officially relaunched with a new brand: Wymara.
The new Wymara Resort and Villas gets its name from the original developers of the resort – Wymara Ltd.
“Guests will enjoy a continuation of the warm hospitality, attentive service and amenities the resort is known for,” the property said in a statement.
“As we enter 2019 with the new Villas and the 10th anniversary of the resort, we took the opportunity to create a fresh, comprehensive new independent identity,” said Rob Ayer and Bruce Maclaren, co-developers and owners of Wymara Ltd. “We are committed to elevating the guest experience with contemporary elegance in all design aspects, quality and service; which will redefine Caribbean Luxury.”
The Wymara Resort and Villas has 91 rooms on the western end of Turks and Caicos’ iconic Grace Bay Beach.
Amenities range from a 7,000-square-foot infinity pool to a signature eatery, Stelle, and a beachfront Robata-style restaurant called Zest.
Last year, the Wymara added seven new four and five-bedroom villas on Turtle Tail Bay, about 2.5 miles from the property.
The move means the Gansevoort brand is no longer in the Caribbean, with developers at the brand’s other former outpost, Playa Imbert in the Dominican Republic, rebranding as well.
