With a new year comes some news for one of the islands most popular resorts. Wymara Ltd. has announced a new brand, Wymara Resort and Villas, for its luxury hotel and real estate products in the Turks and Caicos.

“As we enter 2019 with the new Villas and the 10th anniversary of the resort, we took the opportunity to create a fresh, comprehensive new independent identity,” said Rob Ayer and Bruce Maclaren, co-developers and owners, Wymara Ltd. “We are committed to elevating the guest experience with contemporary elegance in all design aspects, quality and service; which will redefine Caribbean Luxury.”

Blending a contemporary resort design with sophisticated service, the Wymara Resort and Villas – formerly known as Gansevoort Turks + Caicos, is a chic and intimate retreat that captures the prestige, pristine beauty and spirit of the islands.

Located directly on the western end of Grace Bay Beach, the 91-room luxury resort boasts a well-appointed spa, state-of-the-art fitness center and a 7,000 square foot infinity pool looking out onto turquoise waters.

“Our tenured executive team of hospitality experts truly care about curating the most enjoyable and memorable stays for each individual guest,” says Grant Friedman, CEO and managing director of Wymara Ltd., who has been managing the property since its opening 10 years ago. “We look forward to welcoming guests to experience our new brand that celebrates our award-winning resort, Villas and team.”

Along with its redesigned beachfront restaurant, Zest, and wildly popular rosé wine and blush champagne-themed Pink Bar, which sits directly on the sand, Wymara has introduced seven spectacular new villas on Turtle Tail, located just 2.5 miles away from the resort.

The four- and five-bedroom villas are each located on about half an acre of elevated hillside overlooking the southern shores and Caribbean Sea and feature two private pools, expansive indoor-outdoor living areas, a sunken outdoor fire pit lounge area, over-the-water swimming platforms with direct ocean access, and incredible services and amenities, including access to the resort’s beach, restaurants, bars and spa.
