The Windsong Resort

I spent some great days at this great resort in the Caribbean, and I want to recommend it. If you're thinking of traveling there you should consider it. You won't regret it!

Here's a good article about them:

Tropical Island Living is "Always on your Mind" at the Windsong Resort

"I can't seem to forget you; your Windsong stays on my mind." Like the slogan made popular in a perfume commercial decades ago, "Windsong" whispers softly over and over again to those who have had the pleasure of staying at the four star, Turks and Caicos Islands retreat. Some say it's because thoughts of the boutique condominium resort conjure up the same romantic notions as the perfume advertising. Others embrace Windsong based on the dreamy folklore that graceful dolphins exchange melodies in the magnificent aquamarine waters just off its spectacular sun-kissed shores. In either case, Windsong evokes an unforgettable, romantic, carefree island feeling on one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Windsong is among the newest vacation resorts to be built on the acclaimed Grace Bay Beach in Providenciales. Set on 435 feet of pristine sandy white beach, and adjoining the island's most beautiful coral reef, Windsong is a neighborly enclave, made more intimate by the developers' decision to limit Windsong to only four stories, three buildings and just 50 condominium residences.

Luxury -- unpretenious, and informal -- is the order of the day at Windsong. The resort offers a number of places to feel at home. It might be basking on a lounge chair on your own private penthouse rooftop terrace with panoramic ocean views . . . or floating in the warm, tranquil waters with mask and snorkel, watching the lively action of a bustling reef just offshore. On days when you feel like sunbathing on the beach, you'll be pampered with chilled towels and sorbet service. Or, you and your family can frolic in the waterfall that spills refreshingly into the oceanfront pool. After an invigorating morning swim, libations and a sumptuous lunch are as close as the open-air oceanfront café, Jojo's (opening soon). Aptly named after the famous bottlenosed dolphin who frequents the Windsong beach, JoJo's Café will serve fresh, healthful signature salads, grilled or chilled sandwiches, fresh seasonal fruit, and delightful dinner cuisine. Specialty pizzas, soft-serve ice cream and slushies will satisfy the "young-at-heart." Unique to the resort, diners have underwater views into the pool. All this against a backdrop of deep blue sky, glittering turquoise sea, and an extra-wide sugar sand beach. Vacationers can choose from studio, one, two and three bedroom condominium suites ranging in size from 360 to over 4,000 square feet. Windsong has something for everyone (including expansive penthouses with open roof decks ), and outstanding ocean views, enhanced by "disappearing" pocket doors to balconies and terraces for maximum exposure to the magnificent Grace Bay seascape and refreshing tradewinds.

All master bedrooms also boast ocean views through private balconies. Travertine floors offer a visual extension of the indoor-outdoor feel. Luxurious, gourmet kitchens with British West Indies inspired cabinets, granite countertops and Kitchenaid appliances open to living areas featuring Stanley and Braxton Culler furniture collections. Internet access, keyless entries, digital wall safes, flat screen TVs, Frette towels and bath robes, Hilden linens and Buvlgari bath amenities are just some of the appointments which pamper every hotel guest. An elevator makes it easy to transport luggage, groceries, and gear directly between the reception area and guest rooms.
An open air pavilion and the oceanview meeting facility are ideal for weddings, anniversaries, family gatherings, and social and corporate functions. The Windsong spa and fitness center are a great place to unwind and de-stress." Windsong guests can enjoy a relaxing choice of dozens of delightful spa treatments ranging from a Swedish, or deep tissue massage, to popular packages such as the Island Indulgence. Bicycles, and non-motorized watercraft are complimentary to resort guests.

Despite its peaceful, location, Windsong is close to a number of excellent restaurants, the local supermarket, airport, shopping, casinos, and the Provo Golf & Country Club. Windsong vacationers can have it all - a luxury tropical island getaway with suites and price points to suit a range of tastes. Surely once they experience it, Windsong will stay on their minds too.
