Grace Bay Resorts in Turks and Caicos recently announced that it will assume operational responsibility and take an ownership stake in the management of West Bay Club, a resort located just three miles from the Grace Bay Club on Grace Bay Beach.
The hotel will be re-branded as West Bay Club, a Grace Bay Resort, effective immediately. With 46 oceanfront suites, the hotel blends Caribbean charm with modern, chic design. West Bay Club currently operates one restaurant, Atlantic Bar & Grill that offers a casual, poolside dining experience, as well as an intimate spa and fitness center.
“We are honored to have been invited by existing ownership to include West Bay Club in the Grace Bay Resorts group,” said Mark Durliat, CEO and principal of Grace Bay Resorts, in a written release. “The original developers deserve high praise for being the pioneers in establishing a luxury resort in what was then an undiscovered area of Grace Bay beach, in turn it’s dedicated staff merit credit for establishing it’s admirable presence in the market place. We look forward to building on this legacy as we work to further elevate the hotel’s prominence in the Turks and Caicos.”
Gradual property-wide improvements will be made over the next 18 months, while Grace Bay Resorts’ short-term focus will be to complete a thorough repositioning of West Bay Club with a significant emphasis on enhancing service standards, implementing training programs to improve on the resort’s already strong reputation. Additionally, plans are already in place to enhance the resort’s food and beverage programs which will be announced soon.
