Formerly the Turks and Caicos Club, this serene Lower Bight boutique hotel is one of Grace Bay's smallest resorts, with just 21 one- and two-bedroom suites. The 16 oceanfront units have deep terraces offering unfettered views of Grace Bay, and second-floor balconies are even bigger than those on the third floor. The five poolside suites are the best deal here—you may not have sea vistas, but you're still mere steps from one of the world's best beaches. Plus, every suite has its own designated "pampering pod" beach lounger, in which you can laze about all day long, playing with complimentary water toys (Hobie Cats, kayaks, snorkel equipment, and stand-up paddleboards) or ordering lunch or drinks from the beach bar (daily 10am to 6pm). Every suite is comfortably furnished and spacious (more than 1,000 sq. ft.), but may be a little on the dim side—still, you can practically live on the big covered porches, complete with daybeds for breezy lounging. All suites have kitchenettes; one unit has lockout capabilities for family stays. One-bedroom suites come with a king bed and a queen pullout in the living area, another enticement for families. The pretty pool and adjacent Beach House restaurant (open breakfast, lunch, and dinner) form the heart of the resort, and if you want to socialize, this is a fine place to do it. Otherwise, The Beach House is a chill retreat, tailor-made for smoothing out the kinks in any overheated psyche. The resort is open year-round.
