What We Love
- Grace Bay Beach is the real star at this resort.
- The complimentary bicycles and ocean kayaks make family fun easy!
Things to Know
- The resort offers kitchenettes and even full kitchens in select rooms, so families with an eye on the budget can enjoy paradise without breaking the bank.
Chill out at 1 of 2 free-form pools, reminiscent of a hidden tropical swimming hole, surrounded by thick foliage and shrubbery. For more relaxation, claim your spot in the spa tub in the adult pool. Or, stroll on down to Grace Bay Beach where 12 miles of soft, white sand overlooking serene waters offers the perfect afternoon of sun and surf. Your inner child will thank you if you throw off adult decorum for a while and go all out in the ocean with the complimentary Hobie cats, kayaks or snorkeling gear.
When you are wonderfully exhausted head over to Pelican Bay Restaurant and let a delicious bowl of conch chowder revive you. This unique restaurant features both air-conditioned seating and an open-air terrace where the smell of grilled fish gently wafts on the ocean breeze. Evenings bring live music and special events for a bit of festivity.
For the ultimate vacation pampering, we recommend a treatment or two at Spa Tropique. The full service spa is available for a wide range of indulgences, including the popular Hydro Boost Mask. Perhaps the best indulgence at the resort though, is the opportunity to do nothing but sit on your private balcony, drinking coffee and watching the colors of the sun dance across the still waters. Along with those private spaces, all guest rooms at the resort have mini kitchens, washers and dryers and flat-screen TVs.
Because it sits right in the middle of Grace Bay, the resort is a great base for exploring the beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands. Let the friendly staff help you book a snorkeling or fishing trip. Or, if you want an underworld adventure without the water, spend a day exploring the Middle Caicos Caves, where Mother Nature has used limestone to create incredible, natural beauty.

Terrible cancellation policy
I had two nights booked July 2020 during the time that the border hasn't opened due to COVID. This hotel refuses to refund the $900 two night stay even though there is not way to get there. I did book through Hotwire and prepaid. Hotwire said "this hotel has a very stringent policy for prepaid stays." I have several other international trips that have been rearranged due to closed borders with no problems. The other night stays and all services associated with the extended portion of this trip, all reschedule with no problem. This is the only portion of several trips that was not accommodated in any way. I would make sure you purchased external insurance coverage to cover any unexpected changes (like an international border closure completely out of your control!) if you plan to stay at this hotel.
Like staying in paradise
This was our third trip to Turks, our first time staying at RWI...I don’t think we will stay anywhere else! The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, the grounds are of botanic garden quality and our suite was well appointed and very clean. Special shout out to the beach attendants Enoc and Eddy.
We love RWI
We have been to RWI six times and we love it! The location, the staff, & the beautiful grounds keep us coming back. We found Bert, the bartender, always personable and friendly (contradicting one of the previous reviewers) ~ we enjoy his company! Y-Jay and O’Neill are also favorites of ours.
Royal West Indies is a very clean well kept property. It is on beautiful Grace Bay in one of the best spots on the bay! It’s close to Grace Way Grocery store. Nice friendly staff. Meeting Sherman is a must. Property owners are friendly and helpful. Bikes are available for exploring the island. Beach has nice umbrellas and chase lounges.
We booked a 2 bedroom condo and in actual fact it was a one bedroom condo with an attached (via a foyer) studio. This worked out well for us, as 2 sisters shared the condo and the 3rd person had the separate studio. However, I could see how this could be an issue for families with young children. The grounds were lovely and there was a nice restaurant/bar on premise that had good food at reasonable prices. But, the staff gave the impression they were not happy to be working there and the service was extremely slow. (However, Guion & Joel who were working on the weekend were very pleasant and our meal arrived much quicker). Lastly, this was my 4th trip to Turks but first at RWI and this time I was bitten a significant amount of times, primarily around the feet and ankles. Not sure if this was Noseeums, or something else and where I got them. But never had this issue before.
