I’m not a pool guy. There, I said it.
If I’m in the Caribbean and the sun is shining—why in the world would I spend any time at a pool? But the pool fronting The Estate, the luxe resort-within-a-resort at Grace Bay Club, isn’t the norm. This sleek, T-shaped, modern design is just so sexy.
The pool sits just steps from the beach, with two palm trees shading the bright blue water.
Umbrellas abound, of course. Wooden lounge chairs sport cushy padding perfect for all day relaxing and there are even a couple of choice beds outfitted with flowing white drapes perfect for catching soothing West Indian trade winds.
Better yet, it’s only one of the resort’s three pools. An adults-only pool is located at The Hotel and the family-friendly pool at The Villas is an escape for parents and children alike. While The Estate pool is reserved only for guests of these ultra-luxury accommodations, all three feature attentive staff and amenities to remind you just what “five-star” truly means.
As if all that isn’t alluring enough, there are two additional aspects to these pool areas that put them over the top.
The first are the poolside cabanas, located just off the sands of Grace Bay Beach. Here, in open-air-yet-private spaces, guests can indulge in Grace Bay Club’s Anani Spa signature body treatments.
The second is the hot tub. Hot tub in the Caribbean? Yes and yes! You haven’t experienced sundown in the lap of luxury until you’ve done it sipping sundowners in a hot tub.
