The Somerset on Grace Bay

European elegance in Turks and Caicos
VERIFIED LUXURY
Designed by New York-based Rosenberg Kolb, The Somerset on Grace Bay makes an impression with its European touches. You’ll see it in subtle details, from the hotel’s façade to the manicured croquet lawn.

If mallets and wickets don’t entice you, take refuge in the 70-foot infinity pool or get in a workout in the reverse-current lap pool, both of which come with ocean views.

The property’s common areas are small overall, but it’s because The Somerset focuses on providing more spacious rooms and doesn’t distract from its greatest asset: Grace Bay.

The Somerset’s 400-foot parcel of white sand on Grace Bay — often involved in discussions of the world’s best beaches — puts you in prime position to experience it firsthand.

Our Inspector's Highlights
• Among the islands in the Caribbean, the 12-mile Grace Bay on Turks and Caicos stands out for its calm, shallow waters that stretch its blue and green patterns noticeably far from shore.

• While couples love the beach hotel's romantic setting, families relish its complimentary Caicos Kids Club. Little ones can hunt for treasure or construct sand castles as part of the club’s daily activities.

• Snorkeling, sailing, stand-up paddle boarding, windsurfing and kayaking are all possible from The Somerset’s shores.

• The Turks and Caicos resort is outfitted with a fitness center, but for a truly unique way to stay in shape, opt for a SUP yoga class. Paddle out with a stand-up paddleboard for a tropical, challenging twist to your traditional practice. 

• After the sun sets, the pools light up in a green way. Custom, recycled glass tiles, imported from Spain, absorb sunlight and glow at night.
Things to Know
• The Turks & Caicos hotel’s spa is small with only two treatment rooms, but we recommend enjoying your massage outside in the tropical sunshine.

• Mom and dad can escape when the sun goes down as well, when kids can partake in the club’s movie nights or dinners.

• The Somerset offers the only regulation croquet lawn on Turks and Caicos.
The Rooms
• The Somerset’s all-suite and villa approach makes you feel like you’re renting your very own beach house complete with a washer/dryer.

• Units range from one to five bedrooms and sprawl from 1,400 to 5,300 square feet. In that sense, there are no hotel rooms at The Somerset — only 53 residences that make a stay both family-friendly and romantic.

• Full kitchens offer granite countertops, Viking appliances and a full refrigerator with icemaker.

• Luxurious marble bathrooms offer soaking tubs, rain showers and Molton Brown of London toiletries.
The Restaurants
• Featuring casual and fine-dining options onsite, the hotel can set the mood for any occasion. For the latter, Pavilion goes for the surf and turf with a live lobster tank, a raw bar and a wood stone oven.

• Start with a round of oysters or the wahoo with mango and finish it off with a wood-baked rack of lamb.

• If you’d rather kick back outside in your bare feet, try the island’s favorite seafood, conch, in ceviche or fried form at the LunaSea Bar & Grill.

• The Somerset also throws weekly beach barbecues that include a DJ, dancing, a bonfire and a rum bar, and it provides private beach and in-suite dining services if you prefer something more intimate.
