Does winter’s cold embrace have you dreaming of a warm Caribbean beach? Then, Ocean Club Resorts is the perfect answer to your winter blahs. It’s located on the beautiful, award-winning island of Providenciales on Turks and Caicos, which received Trip Advisor’s 2015 Traveler’s Choice Award for the #1 Island in the World! Turks and Caicos is just under three-hours with a direct flight from Charlotte, making it close enough yet far from winter’s chill.

Ocean Club verses Ocean Club West

Ocean-Club-West

There are two resorts: Ocean Club and Ocean Club West. Both are located, approximately one mile apart, on the gorgeous Grace Bay Beach. The original resort, Ocean Club was started in 1988 and finished in 1995. The newer Ocean Club West was completed in 2000 and comes with slightly higher nightly rates. Ocean Club is at the quieter end of Grace Bay, just steps away from a lightly developed beach. At Ocean Club West you’ll find yourself in the busier part of Grace Bay, within walking distance of shops, restaurants, and a grocery store.
