From the editors of Condé Nast Traveler:
Fronting a wide, uncrowded swath of Grace Bay's white sand beach, the Gansevoort blends Miami Beach–style chic with Providenciales's easygoing sybaritism, making it a snazzy addition to the island's throng of luxury resorts. The service is deftly balanced between attentiveness and unobtrusiveness, from the gracious front desk staff to the congenial beach crew. Housed in three gleaming-white buildings oriented toward the water, the 91 rooms are bright and generously proportioned, designed using clean lines and containing practical details such as sliding wood panels above the headboard that can block out extra sunlight, big terraces with a glass perimeter that maximize water views, and a well-equipped kitchenette (you probably won't use it much, as room service is prompt). A stunning infinity pool, with iridescent turquoise tiles, wide loungers (some set on wood platforms in the water), and chillax music emanating from speakers, is the resort's focal point and can happily accommodate lolling couples, families with wading toddlers (thanks to ample shallow areas), and lap swimmers. The indoor/outdoor Bistro Bagatelle, separated from the pool by a trellised path, offers an extensive menu ranging from lunchtime mahimahi tacos to roasted pork porterhouse for dinner. The small Exhale Spa's three treatment rooms each come with an outdoor shower. —2010 Hot List
