With its location on the quieter eastern side of Grace Bay Beach, the atmosphere at The Venetian on Grace Bay is somewhat more tranquil than the resorts located in central Grace Bay.
The resort offers rooms ranging from one-bedroom suites to the luxurious three-bedroom oceanfront penthouse. All rooms have ocean views and private screened porches overlooking Grace Bay. In addition, all suites feature a master bedroom with a king-size bed, an ensuite bathroom with dual vanity sinks, a spacious shower, and a bathtub.
Each bedroom in the two-bedroom and three-bedroom suites also has its own ensuite bathroom. Meanwhile, each luxury suite comes with a full kitchen, laundry room, washer, dryer, and laundry detergent.
Amenities at The Venetian include gated and covered parking, a fitness center, a heated swimming pool with a jet tub, poolside service, tennis courts that are fully lit in the evenings, bicycles, barbecue grills, and more—so there’s no shortage of things to do before you even leave the resort grounds.
Restaurants and Dining
The Venetian doesn’t have an on-site restaurant, but that’s intentional to reduce foot traffic at the resort, giving guests a quieter stay with more privacy. However, there are three restaurants within a short walking distance.
For a casual atmosphere right on Grace Bay Beach, there’s Cabana Bar & Grill (at nearby Ocean Club Resort), where you can choose from a variety of options including seafood, sandwiches, pizza, and salads. The restaurant’s dress code is casual, so feel free to leave your shoes on the beach and enjoy your meal barefoot.
For a more formal and elegant dining setting, there’s the 4,000-square-foot Opus Wine Bar and Grill. The restaurant, which can accommodate large cocktail and dinner parties, has a charming courtyard where you can dine under swaying palm trees and enjoy live entertainment on the restaurant’s custom-designed stage.
And then there’s 19 Bar and Restaurant, located just across the road from The Venetian at the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club. 19 Restaurant is a favorite among those who love to brunch on the weekends, and it’s also the perfect spot for breakfast or lunch any day of the week. The restaurant boasts an open-air terrace that overlooks the golf course’s 18th hole, but you don’t have to be a golfer to stop in for a meal or a drink from the bar.
If you can’t find what you like from any of the three restaurants, the main Grace Bay strip—where you’ll find everything from pizza to sushi to French cuisine— is just a short drive away.
Things to Do
If you’re interested in planning activities during your stay in the Turks and Caicos, The Venetian offers a full-service concierge to help plan your itinerary. The concierge can accommodate everything from car rentals to boat excursions and day trips to other islands. You can also request to have your suite stocked with groceries so you can skip the grocery shopping when you arrive and get right to enjoying your vacation (and taking advantage of the full kitchen in your suite). If you’re interested in hiring a private chef during your stay, the concierge can also make those arrangements for you.
With its prime location on the beach, you have easy access to a range of activities on the water, whether it’s paddleboarding, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, or boating. And if you love the outdoors but want to stay on dry land, you can walk across the road to the golf course to play a few rounds of golf, stopping at 19 Bar and Restaurant when you’re finished for a refreshing drink and casual meal.
For those looking to get married during their stay at The Venetian, the resort not only offers a beautiful venue for a wedding ceremony and reception, but the staff will also assist with wedding planning details since many guests aren’t familiar with the island and local vendors before arriving.
If you’re looking for a vacation that allows you to stay on a world-renowned beach, yet also offers the peace and seclusion of a lesser-known destination—all with a concierge team available to help plan every detail of your itinerary—then The Venetian on Grace Bay could be just what you’ve been looking for.
