In the same rarefied league as the Somerset and the Regent Palms, the Grace Bay Club purrs along like a well-fed jungle cat. Set on 11 acres of luscious Grace Bay sand, this elegant-casual luxury resort just keeps getting all the big and little things right. It's actually three hotels in one: the 21-suite Hotel, with its own pool, two bars (Infiniti and the Lounge), and restaurant (Anacaona)—kids 12 and up only, please; the Villas, 38 family-friendly condos with a pool and restaurant (Grill Rouge); and The Estate, 22 oceanfront residences (more like homes) with a lap pool and restaurant (Krave). The look throughout is Mediterranean villa, with sun-splashed suites graciously sheathed in travertine-tile floors. Each suite (except Villa junior suites) has its own granite-countertop kitchen or kitchenette with stainless-steel appliances, terrace or patio, and washer/dryer. Upgrades are ongoing here—Grace Bay's management team and staff are second to none on Provo.

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.
