Ocean Club West's first phase to open


PROVIDENCIALES, Turks and Caicos -- The first phase of Ocean Club West will open here Dec. 20. The 90-room Ocean Club West is the sister property to the 86-room Ocean Club, also on Provo.

Making their debut will be 35 suites, the Seaside Cafe and a free-form pool, according to general manager Tom Lewis.

Lewis said an additional 33 suites will come on line in the first two months of the new year. The remaining units should be available by the summer.

He said Ocean Club's clientele is made up of couples and families who are drawn to its all-suite product.

There are five categories of rooms available at Ocean Club West -- studios, junior suites and one-, two- and three-bedroom suites. With the exception of the studios, all of the units have a full kitchen (stove, oven and microwave); a washer and dryer, and pull-out, queen-size sofa beds. The studios have a kitchenette. Lewis said all of the suites "have everything you want, right down to the teaspoon."

The suites have screened-in balconies with bamboo furniture, and Lewis describes the room decor as tropical, with fabrics and colors to match.

The beachfront resort will also have a fitness center and tennis courts. Its Seaside Cafe will be an open-air restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Guests staying at Ocean Club West will have access to Ocean Club's facilities, and vice versa.

He said complimentary shuttle service will operate between both properties, which are about a three-minute drive apart.

On site at Ocean Club is Ocean Plaza, which has a boutique, a convenience store and a car rental outlet.

To celebrate the opening, Ocean Club West is offering a 20% discount from Dec. 20 to March 31. The discount cuts rates between $59 and $259 per night, depending on room category. Through Jan. 2, prices start at $295 for a studio suite. From Jan. 3 to April 30, prices for a studio start at $225.

Ocean Club West is located about eight miles from the Providenciales Airport.
