Ocean Club Resorts
WHERE: Providenciales, Turks & Caicos
WHY GO? The ultracasual, family-friendly Ocean Club and Ocean Club West resorts are just a 15-minute beach stroll apart―guests can stay in one and play in two! Both front Grace Bay Beach, which has legitimate bragging rights as one of the best beaches on the planet, and the third-largest barrier reef in the world just offshore. In the resorts’ new fine-dining Opus Wine Bar and Grill, chef Abby Marlow wows guests with a surprisingly extensive wine list and local delicacies such as roasted-pumpkin-and-coconut soup, conch ceviche, and herb-marinated pork chops with pineapple, apple, and cilantro salsa.
HOLIDAY FUN: A rum punch party and holiday-themed menus; 800/457-8787 or oceanclubresorts.com
