Turks & Caicos’ Sleekest Hideaway: Wymara Resort & Villas
October 5, 2021 by Perrie Hartz
Situated directly on Turks and Caicos’ stunning Grace Bay—considered one of the most beautiful beaches in the world—is Wymara Resort & Villas, a sleek and stylish oceanfront property in Providenciales. Having recently completed an extensive renovation in November 2020, this intimate and luxurious 4-acre property is sparklingly new, with a sophisticated simplicity and contemporary style not usually found among the islands’ usual colonial Caribbean architecture.
The jaw-dropping beautiful views of Grace Bay’s famed crystalline waters and lush, bright bougainvillea-covered grounds offer a perfect juxtaposition against the sleek whitewashed walls of the property, that somehow feels both intimate and spacious at once. Just beyond the open-air lobby, the true gem in Wymara’s architectural crown is it’s impressive 7,000 square-foot mosaic-tiled infinity edge pool that blends seamlessly into the aquamarine sea behind it and offers floating island pods and chic chaise lounges to soak in the sun and the incomparable views.
The resort offers 91 newly-renovated rooms and suites, each all-white with a sleek, minimalist design accented with pops of colorful accents and dark wood furniture. The accommodations range from studios to luxury suites, yet all have ocean views through soaring floor-to-ceiling windows. The new accommodations and interior designs take inspiration from the beauty of Grace Bay and the islands’ natural surroundings, and truly reintroduce Wymara Resort and Villas as a modern luxury resort that celebrates the innate splendor of the Turks and Caicos islands.
Rooms range from 670 square foot studios to two-and three-bedroom suites up to 2,542 square feet, to the largest, the 3,702 square foot oceanfront penthouse. Amenities include blackout curtains, a king bed, large bathrooms with separate soaking tubs, a rain shower, and a sitting and eating area. Suites also include a laundry room with washer and dryer, separate dining areas, chaise lounges, and sprawling terraces, along with dedicated VIP services.
Perhaps of the most impressive additions included in the resort’s 10 million-dollar renovation are its seven brand new four-and five-bedroom luxury villas. Less than a 10-minute drive from the main property, the villas are perched along the hillside above Turtle Tail, perfectly secluded, with dramatic sweeping views over the bay’s electric palette of blue hues.
These new residences, which look and feel like you’re luxuriating at a private villa in the Maldives, have been thoughtfully designed by renown English architects Simon Nicholls and Chris Davies, who created elevated spacious indoor and outdoor living areas that make use of the natural light and the beauty of the surrounding nature. Each villa has a spectacular panoramic ocean view, infinity edge pool, courtyard waterfall pool and a private over water swim and sunbathing platform suspended over the aquamarine waters of Turtle Tail below. There is also a sunken fire pit as well as ample indoor and outdoor living space. Beyond use of the resort’s full property, villa guests enjoy exclusive amenities as well, including access to a personal chef, a private Sports Club with a 25 meter pool, tennis court, state-of-the-art gym, steam room, sauna, game room, heated whirlpool, and bocce ball court. These ultra-luxe, ultra-private residences are ideal for families, large group getaways or simply those guests craving a little extra seclusion in the most luxurious surroundings.
Guests of Wymara have two superb dining options to choose from; the already well-established Zest, and a brand-new restaurant that was just debuted: Indigo by Chef Andrew Mirosch. Indigo has a Caribbean-inspired menu with an emphasis on fresh ingredients, sustainable seafood and local produce. Andrew Mirosch, award-winning Executive Chef and Culinary Director at Wymara, brings inspiration from his homeland in Australia, and other cuisines world-wide, to imbue a unique combination of international influence and island sensibility and vibrance. With a strong focus on health and wellness, Indigo offers an extensive and elevated wellness menu, featuring gluten-free, vegan, and vegetarian options. The newly refurbished venue is chic and minimalist, with locally-inspired dishes such as white sturgeon caviar, Caribbean mahi mahi, and roasted cauliflower steak. Wymara shows its commitment to sustainability and its love for the islands of Turks and Caicos by exclusively using locally-sourced ingredients and partnering solely with local farmers and fishermen.
Zest, Wymara’s casual-yet-chic restaurant, is the idyllic spot for oceanfront dining. The stunning Grace Bay waters and balmy open-air seating provide a spectacular backdrop to a meal, complete with freshly prepared dishes and cocktails. Guests may sample a variety of fresh Caribbean specialties (also carefully curated by Chef Andrew Mirosch), while taking in the awe-inducing beauty of the fiery Grace Bay sunsets.
Beyond Wymara’s elevated dining options, other resort amenities include private cabanas at the infinity pool and on Grace Bay Beach, abundant water sports (including private boat charters) and a plethora of wellness options. The only organic-certified spa in the Turks and Caicos, The Wymara Spa elevates wellness to another level.
