Are you looking for a unique escape to paradise? A place with bigger rooms, your own kitchen and laundry, multiple bathrooms for your family, full housekeeping, plus a spa, a gym, an infinity pool and the possibility of room service served to you on your very own dining room table? Allow me to introduce you to the Regent Grand Resort, “where memories are made and traditions created”.
From Studio Suites to Three Bedroom Deluxe Ocean Front Units, this is a different and fabulous place to consider as you plan your next vacation.
The Regent Grand Resort is a luxury all-suite boutique hotel in the middle of paradise. Located on a pristine stretch of the powdery white Grace Bay Beach in the Turks and Caicos, the Regent Grand Resort offers the opportunity to stretch out in style and try your hand at living like a very blessed local. My family of four, two adults and two teen girls ages 13 and 15, had the pleasure of staying in a three bedroom, 2 bathroom suite with an incredible oversized balcony over looking the ocean. Never in all of my travels have I had the occasion to wake up to a view as stunning as this:
When you stay at the Regent Grand you will find many inclusions:
Airport transfers (on winter rates)
Complimentary internet in rooms and Wi-Fi throughout resort
Complimentary spring water on arrival

The Regent Grand offers fabulous amenities, but perhaps the biggest perk of all, is the options and flexibility it gives your family!
A tour of our suite: As you entered you were immediately drawn to the left, down the hall to the main living area, and towards the ocean. You walked past a gourmet kitchen complete with high end stainless steel appliances, a coffee maker, blender, mixer, champagne glasses, bucket, toaster and every other gadget you would possibly need for your stay.
One of our favourite things to do while staying at the Regent Grand Resort was to take advantage of this kitchen! With directions to the closest grocery store, a mere 10 minute walk away, we headed out to pick up the fixing’s to create dinner in our very own gourmet kitchen! I was a little bit surprised, and even a bit thrilled to see some brand names I recognized and loved! Lenders Bagels, Philadelphia Whipped Cream Cheese, and Ragu Pasta Sauce all found their way into our cart. We added local fruits, fresh cooked breads, bottled water, mountain grown coffee, wine and soda, and we were ready to get our chef on! (Insider tip: Right at the grocery store is a little coffee shop where you can get your cappuccino or latte fix! )
Located beside the kitchen was an open and inviting dining area.
Further inside the unit you found a cozy family room complete with wide screen LCD television offering a large number of networks. Free Wi-Fi was available throughout!
The glass doors made up the entire back wall, and spanned the width of the large family room. This expanded your living space, letting the outside in, and quite frankly, left you a little bit breathless. That view. Oh my, that view.
Back down the hallway in the other direction were two plush bedrooms with King Size Beds, generous closets, and each with their own television.
This unit had two over sized bathrooms, and the master had those coveted double sinks. The third bedroom in our unit was set up as a lounge with pull out sofa. Perfect for the late night television watching or if you really needed to, a little bit of work.
Hidden away in the hallway, and so convenient after a week away at the beach, was the compact and efficient washer and dryer. Throwing in laundry after a day splashing in the turquoise waves is a lot more fun at the Regent Grand Resort than it is at home!
If cooking really isn’t for you, The Regent Grand Resort is ideally located only a short stroll from restaurants and shops; and breakfast is included in each stay. The Vix where breakfast is served each day, serves continental style fare,and is located directly across the quiet street.
Staying in a condo hotel is a different experience than your traditional hotel. At the Regent Grand Resort there’s still a very quiet front desk, a friendly bell man, and daily room cleaning; but other than that you are on your own. If you’re a large family, there’s room to spread out from those you love the most. There is a level of privacy in a condo hotel that simply can’t be found in a traditional hotel room. We loved that we could play in the pools and on the beach all day long, sneaking up to our kitchen to whip up a quick lunch and maybe even throw in a load of laundry while we were there. We adored that when we needed a break from the sun we could seek shade on our very own private balcony overlooking the beach. We highly recommend that if you have had enough of expensive breakfasts, lunches, and dinners in town, you remember that with a condo hotel you don’t have to eat out every meal! One quick, entertaining and perhaps even educational trip to the local grocery store and you are set up for a few meals in your very own home in paradise and at half the price!

*Golf is included with your ocean front booking.
*Check special rates before you book!
*Remember that by staying at a condo hotel you can dramatically reduce the cost of your vacation by eating in. Those restaurant bills add up quickly.
*Note that this is a very quiet property. If travelling with children I would advise to bring your own sand toys and snorkel gear.
*As this is a condo hotel each unit is a little bit different, but all I saw were well appointed and beautiful.
