The Regent Grand resort in Turks and Caicos.

At Turks and Caicos’ Regent Grand, A Different Way to Experience Grace Bay

By: Alexander Britell - June 14, 2024

Grace Bay Beach; the restaurants, the shopping, the boating, the golf. They’re all a big par of the reason why Turks and Caicos has been one of the hottest destinations in the hemisphere over the last few years. 

But hidden away in the heart of Providencaiels’ Grace Bay Village is a different way to experience the destination. 

This is the Regent Grand, a luxury boutique resort that remains one of the best-kept secrets in Turks and Caicos.

The resort first opened its doors a decade-and-a-half ago; after a time as the Bianca Sands, the the property has relaunched and rebranded as the Regent Grand, back and better than ever. 

When it comes to Grace Bay Village, it’s the pre-eminent, small luxury resort, with just 24 rooms and a decidedly intimate, boutique feel, general manager Paul Telford tells Caribbean Journal. 

“We consider ourselves to have a really nice, residential, tranquil feel when compared to the big resorts,” he says. 

It’s right on Grace Bay Beach.

But the biggest story is the way resort caters to families, and the location is a major part of that. 

Being in the center of the village means everything is right there, Telford says. 

“You can get to all the best restaurants, you can walk to the Seven Stars, the shops at Salt Mills; if you want a sports bar, Danny Buoy’s is there. We really think it’s the ideal location for a family.”

And the best part? You can walk to everything, without the need for a taxi or rental car, a rather compelling case for a family traveling together. 

The hotel also erectly partnered with a nearby coffee shop on daily breakfast service, something that can be included with your stay. 

That’s along with amenities like free Wi-Fi, a sparkling, heated infinity pool and a pair of jacuzzis, among other amenities. 

The rooms are large and spacious villa-style units, ranging from one to four bedrooms, all with a kitchen, perfect for families and groups. 

It’s no surprise, then, that the resort recently created a new summer package for families: it’s called the Family Adventure, which includes a 17 percent discount for stays of four nights or more, and a free excursion with Provo’s popular Adventure Water sports for your family. 

Of course, there is another amenity: Grace Bay Beach itself, where the resort occupies a privileged perch on the sand. 

It all adds up to a unique, decidedly family-friendly Turks and Caicos resort in the heart of Provo’s most popular destination.
