The flagship property of the Grace Bay Resorts empire, Grace Bay Club purrs along like a well-fed jungle cat. The Grace Bay Club stretches along some 11 acres of stupendous oceanfront acreage. It's an elegant-casual luxury resort with a focus on doing all the big and little things right. It's actually three hotels in one: the adults-only Hotel, with 21 oceanfront suites and its own pool (ages 16 and up only, please); the Villas, 38 family-friendly ocean-view condos with a pool; and The Estate, 22 custom-designed oceanfront residences (more like homes) with a lap pool and restaurant (Krave). The look throughout is sleek Mediterranean villa, with roomy, sun-splashed suites sheathed in travertine-tile floors. Each suite is enormous—even the Hotel's smallest suites are over 1,000 square feet. Every Villa suite (except for Villa Junior Suites) come with full kitchens and washer-dryers, and all guests have a personal concierge, who will stock your fridge before you arrive and will be on call to make restaurant reservations and book excursions. Upgrades are ongoing, and topnotch service is a point of pride here. A new addition to the Grace Bay family is the Private Villa Collection, uber-luxurious free-standing private beachfront villas around the island, each with a private pool and all the amenities of the resort.

Much of the daily activities revolve around that beautiful beach and the resort's two exceptional oceanfront bars (Infiniti Bar and the Lounge). The main restaurant is a romantic place to dine: beachfront, enveloped in tropical greenery, lit by torches, and open to the starry sky (but service was slightly befuddled last time we dined). Grace Bay Club's Kids Town (kids 5–12), offers a daily menu of half- or full-day excursions for kids 5 to 12, such as snorkeling, sandcastle building, and arts & crafts. The Spa Anani offers Euro-Asian treatments.
