One of The Best Christmas Vacation Ideas for Couples and Families
Are you thinking of treating your loved ones to a shared experience instead of monetary gifts this year? Read on to learn what makes our boutique resort and idyllic island one of the best Christmas vacation ideas for couples and families alike.
One of the best reasons to get away with the people you love is to momentarily escape the trappings of everyday life—to focus instead on being in the moment with each other. A lack of distractions combined with postcard-perfect surroundings and a laid-back island vibe make Providenciales (or “Provo” as the locals call it), Turks and Caicos, one of the best Christmas vacation ideas if you want to slow down and experience being in the moment.
Sometimes, taking a vacation together is the only time when couples and families enjoy giving each other their undivided attention. Aside from the fun and shared thrill of exploring new places together, getting away with the people you love can be an investment in your relationship. Just think of all the fun memories you’ll make together and reflect on for years to come.
Imagine sipping on your favorite cocktails together to the backdrop of a late afternoon sky awash in crimson and amber. Picture you and your beloved retreating to your private screened porch overlooking one of the most spectacular beaches in the world. Imagine Caribbean sunsets, gentle trade winds, the sound of steel drums in the distance, warm, turquoise waters, and powder-soft sand. Turks and Caicos’s natural elements invoke a sense of sensuality that naturally comes from being fully immersed in your natural surroundings while in the company of people you cherish most.
While you’re here, consider having Illeana of Attimi Photography capture your favorite moments together with the turquoise waters as your backdrop. A professional photo-shoot makes the perfect, timeless souvenir that will serve to remind you and your loved ones of all the fun you enjoyed together.
Personal Space & Privacy
Located on the quieter end of Grace Bay Beach, The Venetian is a boutique, 27-suite beachfront resort that offers guests tranquility and privacy while still being within convenient reach of the island’s best restaurants, beach bars, cafes, and activities.
Every suite is oceanfront and outfitted with a fully-equipped, gourmet kitchen, laundry facilities, spacious dining and lounging areas, and private, screened-porches overlooking the pristine shoreline of Grace Bay Beach. Being a smaller, boutique resort affords our guests more space and privacy while enjoying our resort grounds, amenities, and expansive beachfront.
Fun and Tranquility
There’s a lot to consider when choosing the ideal location for your Christmas Vacation, including what type of experience you wish to have and how you want to feel when you return home. For couples and families seeking a balance between fun and relaxation, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos is one of the best Christmas vacation ideas. The island of Provo offers plenty of opportunities to unplug from digital distractions, get outside together, play, and explore.
Another element that makes visiting Turks and Caicos one of the best Christmas ideas is how you’ll feel while you’re here and long after your winter vacation is over. Many who visit Providenciales, Turks and Caicos, come back every year. They enjoy the blissful island vibe and how recharged they feel when they return home. When comparing a Turks and Caicos vacation to destinations known for their busy amusement parks and hopping nightlife, while the busier destinations require high energy to enjoy, visiting Turks and Caicos is a true getaway—it restores your energy and replenishes you. Providenciales is an idyllic place where the splendor of the natural world delights your senses and instills a sense of inner calm and contentment. Visit once, and you’re sure to come back.
Activities & Experiences
There are plenty of things to do, see and explore while you’re here, and all at your own pace. Beaches are spacious and uncrowded, and you’ll find small shops, restaurants, and cafes instead of busy city centers and highrises.
The calm, clear, and sheltered waters of Grace Bay are ideal for swimming, kayaking, and paddleboarding. Turks and Caicos is also home to the world’s third-largest barrier reef, offering exceptional opportunities for snorkeling and diving adventures for all ages and activity levels.
Provo has several charters that can offer half-day and full-day snorkeling, diving, and seasonal whale watching excursions while non-motorized water sports can be rented from WaterPlay located next door to our resort. Beachfront horseback riding, jet skiing, and wakeboarding are other popular activities, and beaches along the south side of Provo offer excellent kitesurfing conditions.
Instead of loud nightclubs, you’ll find family-friendly beach bars such as da Conch Shack, beach bonfires, and live music events you can enjoy together. The island culture in Provo is one that encourages togetherness and living in the moment, taking your time to enjoy the sun, sand, smells, sounds, and flavors of a Caribbean paradise.
Providenciales is definitely one of the very best Christnas vacation ideas for beach lovers! Our island is famous for being home to what is consistently voted as one of the most spectacular beaches in the world: Grace Bay Beach. If you’re staying at The Venetian Resort, this magnificent powdery-white sand beach is at your doorstep. Grace ay Beach boasts long stretches of comfortably tepid, crystal-clear, and calm water that is waist to chest deep for several meters before getting progressively deeper. And while our island is home to several other exceptional beaches, Grace Bay Beach’s sheltered waters make it especially ideal for families.
