The ultimate Turks and Caicos villa vacation

The villa

It’s just you and the ethereal sands of Long Bay Beach, the sparkling turquoise sea by day, the watery glimmer of the moon by night.

It’s just you and nearly 9,000 square feet of space, a grand, spectacular beach villa.

You’d almost never know that one of the world’s best luxury resorts is right out the back door.

These are the Estate Villas at the Shore Club Turks and Caicos, the crown jewels of a resort that has been one of the most sought-after stays anywhere since the pandemic.

Travelers are placing a decided premium on the luxury of space and privacy, and they’re increasingly drawn to luxury villas in buzzing destinations like the Turks and Caicos Islands.

But most villas don’t have the Shore Club as an amenity.

You see, it’s the best of both worlds here: you can spend your days in one of the four, five or six-bedroom beach villas, replete with private pools and sweeping bathrooms and exquisite kitchens, hot tubs, outdoor showers and designer amenities and even saunas in the master bedrooms.


Daily housekeeping is included, as is the bespoke attention of a private butler, along with VIP airport transfer, fast-track arrival and departure at the airport, a welcome bar and champagne on arrival, among other touches.

It’s the sort of luxury beach villa you might never even consider leaving.

But then you also have the five-star, magnificent Shore Club, with its Instagram-legendary poolscape and its world-class dining and one of the Caribbean’s best spas, all set just outside the gates of the villa. You have 24-7 hotel service, a hotel concierge, and the butler attending to every possible whim.

What’s remarkable here is how the villa manage to feel so wonderfully, deliciously private, but also offer the kind of luxury resort access that means never wanting for anything.

You can create your own experience: enjoy the seclusion of your private beach lounge area, or laze in your private pool, or venture out for sushi at Sui-Ren or breakfasts in the magical scenery of the Almond Tree restaurant. You can leave through your underground garage and dine at one of the eateries in Grace Bay, or spend the day on a luxury yacht with the fabulous Privé.

The latter is an essential for any Shore Club villa vacation: Privé has become Provo’s top charter boat experience, specializing in fully-outfitted day-charter experiences on extravagant luxury yachts or, as the company’s Garin Bescoby puts it, “we are an extension of the villas, of that lifestyle.”

It all adds up to a Turks and Caicos villa vacation that begins before you even arrive in Providenciales, when the resort reaches out and inquires as to your preferences, how you would like to have the villa provisioned, what kind of itinerary you’d like to curate with the help of your butler.
