Gansevoort Resort is a chic luxury accommodation located in central Providenciales. The complex features 91 rooms, including studios, suites and penthouses, as well as a spa and two restaurants.
Gansevoort is located in the Bight area of Providenciales, directly to the west of the central tourism region of Grace Bay. The resort is ideally situated on the excellent Bight Beach, and within easy walking distance of the beautiful Bight Reef snorkelling site.
The Bight Beach and Grace Bay Beach are both found on the north coast of Providenciales and are adjacent to each other, yet they do differ a little. Grace Bay features a clean sandy ocean floor that continues from the shore for a long distance out, and water depth tends to be deeper as well. The Bight Beach is a bit more sheltered, and lush sea grass begins 50 feet (15m) from the beach, and it’s possible to spot stingrays, eagle rays and green turtles browsing through this tranquil underwater setting.
The Bight Beach is great for a wide range of water sports. There are reefs which are great to explore by snorkelling or paddle board, and the water’s calm enough for other activities as well.
Parasailing, tube wake rides, and boat charters can also be scheduled, with pick up on the beach in front of the Gansevoort. A boat cruise or charter is one of our top recommended things to do, as it’s a great way to experience what makes the Turks and Caicos unique – our spectacular marine environment. Such excursions, visit uninhabited cays, the iguanas at Half Moon Bay and Little Water Cay, and the pristine offshore snorkelling sites on the barrier reef.
In addition to the traditional resort pool and beach loungers, Gansevoort offers a great range of complimentary amenities, including full breakfast, WiFi, a fitness centre, and the use of bicycles.
The resort also features Stelle Restaurant and Zest! restaurant, and Exhale Spa. The concierge service is able to offer assistance with excursion and activity booking.
Gansevoort is a little isolated from the central tourism, dining and shopping district in Grace Bay, yet there are few options in the general area of the resort.
The adjacent resorts offer a few restaurants if you’re looking to try something new. If you’d like to visit these establishments, it’s typically easiest to simply walk up the beach.
There are two sites that may be within walking distance depending on your preference. Graceway IGA, the country’s largest grocery store, is a little less than a mile (1.28km) away, and the retail and dining enclave of Turtle Cove Marina is found 1 mile (1.6km) to the west.
Unless your intention is to simply relax on the beach, we generally advise that visitors rent a car for the duration of their stay, as it’s the least expensive and most convenient way to get around to the beaches, sights and attractions.
A basic economy-class car can typically be had for under $50 per day, yet if you prefer something a little more spacious or unique, there’s a wider selection to choose from.
It’s possible to book either directly with Gansevoort Hotel Group, or with a third-party booking agent. With the exception of special vacation packages that include flights, you’ll typically get the best rates by working with the local resort. If you find a lower rate online than what is advertised on the resort’s website, the local accommodation will often match it.
The Turks and Caicos sees predictable rises and falls in tourist arrivals according to the seasons, and rates during the late summer “low season” are typically much less than they are during the winter “high season”. See Best Times to Visit.
Found a little inland and between the Turtle Cove and Grace Bay areas, The Bight is a small settlement that’s mainly residential. Small shops and a few villas can also be found here. The Bight was one of three original settlements on Providenciales.
