It is my pleasure to welcome you to Villa del Mar, Turks and Caicos. Our helpful, friendly staff eagerly await your arrival and is committed to ensuring that your stay is enjoyable and memorable. As soon as you step off the plane in Providenciales, you'll be greeted with the warm embrace of our perfect tropical climate and feel instantly relaxed. Moments later when you arrive at the resort you'll continue to unwind in a roomy, well-appointed suite situated in the heart of the island and taking full advantage of the natural beauty of our spectacular location.

From inception, Villa del Mar was designed and built to provide an exclusive, convenient and affordable escape in the heart of Turks and Caicos. Set just steps away from the Grace Bay beach - frequently cited as one of the world's best beaches - Villa del Mar offers unmatched value with luxurious accommodations in a world-class setting.

On and off the property, our team goes the extra mile to make sure your visit is an extraordinary experience. The resort's two stunning pools and lush landscaping make a relaxing lounging area with direct access to Grace Bay Beach, where we provide exclusive services for Villa del Mar guests. Within our specially marked area of the beach (note that all the beaches in Turks and Caicos are part of a national park and open to the public), you will be served by an attendant who can provide extra towels, a cold bottle of water, umbrellas, beach toys and any other essentials to help ensure you enjoy our world-famous Grace Bay Beach.

The pristine and peaceful character of Grace Bay Beach is ideal for just relaxing and connecting with nature. The warm, turquoise blue water is soothing and alluring offering itself as your own therapeutic spa while also providing a spectacular place for snorkeling, scuba diving, beach combing, parasailing, banana boating, kayaking, fishing, sailing and wind/kite surfing. All of these activities are easy to enjoy and readily available to all Villa Del Mar guests.

If a more traditional spa is of interest to you, we have an abundance of world-class spas in Providenciales, several of which are located just steps from the resort. Also, within walking distance from Villa Del Mar, you will find a wide selection of top-quality restaurants - from fine dining to family-friendly to typical Island options. You can eat at a different place every day or choose to have some meals in your suite as we provide fully-equipped gourmet kitchens or kitchenettes in every room as well as a central bar-b-que area. In addition, we offer a poolside continental breakfast and our on-site bar is open daily and hosts a weekly cocktail reception.

Providenciales is a great island destination and has something for everyone. For your shopping pleasure, there are numerous unique shops, boutiques and galleries featuring works by local artisans, as well as sophisticated European and U.S. designs and sportswear as well as duty free jewelry – all nearby and easily accessible.

For fitness enthusiasts, we have an aerobic and cardio health facility on site, outfitted with state of the art equipment and views of the beautiful pool area. In addition, we are located close to the 18-hole championship Provo Golf and Country club and our staff can set up a range of other excursions and activities such as scuba diving, chartered deep-sea fishing, guided bone fishing outings and/or eco-tours, cruises to uninhabited nearby cays, sunset cruises and day trips to our neighboring islands.

In addition to the many appealing attractions of the Turks and Caicos, one of the things that will help make your stay here truly unique and special is the service and attention you'll receive from the Villa Del Mar team. I bring with me extensive experience in the luxury resort/hotel property industry having served as General Manager and Director of Development for a string of world class resorts including:

I've joined the Villa del Mar organization after spending three years with one of Canada's largest and most progressive management companies, Pacrim Hospitality Services, where I served as General Manager at one of the corporate hotels, and worked on Special Projects.

What these properties all have in common is a deep commitment to customer service and operational excellence.

In short, our unspoiled island provides the perfect surroundings for total relaxation and a blissful vacation, which are only enhanced by the setting and service you'll find at Villa Del Mar. We look forward to sharing our paradise with you and showing you why we've been called the "savvy alternative" in Grace Bay.

Sincerely,
