The ultra posh and inviting surroundings of The Somerset on Grace Bay hint not even in the slightest at the active travel fun you can have here.
Just look at those pools, the cushy chaise lounges, perfectly manicured landscaping, and many-balconied suites and villas. It all fronts Grace Bay, as sublime a stretch of beach as you’ll find anywhere, blessed with a cool and generally calm surf befitting its name.
It’s not all rest and relaxation here, though, especially now that The Somerset has teamed up with Provo’s #1 kiteboarding school, Turks & Caicos Kiteboarding (TCK), to offer new Alpha-Omega Kiteboarding Experience packages.
With a little time and dedication, guests can go from beginner to expert and become an internationally-recognized IKO Level 3 rider in the same vacation.
