Set on the shores of the three-mile Long Bay Beach on the south side of Providenciales, H2O Resort is a modern boutique resort comprising suites ranging from 1-to-4 bedrooms, offering accommodations that cater to travelers who are looking for a quiet, hassle-free alternative to the increasingly crowded Grace Bay, and is especially a unique place for water sports enthusiasts.
Each of the 24 rooms offers incredible views of the sparkling turquoise Caicos Banks with its dramatic sunrises and Caribbean moonrises. Every unit is furnished by Restoration Hardware, has fully equipped kitchens and smart TVs in every room. The resort offers an extensive array of amenities and activities for everyone.
If you want to pay a visit to the busier side of the island, the Grace Bay strip is only a 10-minute drive away from the resort.
Long Bay Beach is quite scenic, with white sand and turquoise water. As it’s on the Caicos Banks, ocean depth is shallow for great distances off the shore, making it perfect for relaxing in. The conditions are excellent for wind water sports such as kiteboarding and wing foiling, as the coast is on the windward side of the island.
Long Bay Beach
Beyond the sense of quiet H2O Resort offers, the resort also makes it easy for guests to stay active during their stay. With its shallow waters and consistent trade winds, Long Bay Beach is renowned for its ideal kiteboarding conditions.
On any given day, you’re likely to see several colorful kites flying across the sky as kiteboarders, both novice and pro, take advantage of the perfect kiting conditions. And for H2O guests that are interested in giving kiteboarding a try, there’s the option to rent gear from the resort and take lessons from an onsite certified instructor. The resort features a full offering of new kiteboard and wind sports equipment
Long Bay Beach is great for more than kiteboarding. You can also explore the beach with any of the non-motorized water sports equipment H2O provides all guests for the free use of kayaks, paddleboards, and Hobie Cat sailboats. The resort also has jet skis and e-Foil boards for guests when the wind is calm, plus tubing behind its SeaDoo Switch pontoon boat. Long Bay’s shallow waters also make it an ideal beach for families with kids.

Electric Tesla cars are also available upon request for guests who want to go for an environmentally friendly cruise around the island.
