Ocean Club Beginnings
Ocean Club Beach Scene
When the Ocean Club first opened its doors, there were but a handful of hotels in Providenciales, the most inhabited of the Turks and Caicos Islands. At the time, Grace Bay Beach was the Caribbean’s best kept secret. Ocean Club General Manager Tom Lewis remembers those early days. “People used to say, ‘You’re going where?’ Back then, people referred to us as the Turquoise Islands,” Lewis said.
Lewis, who worked for years at Keystone Ski Resort in Colorado, was thrilled with the idea of working on a site where his back door looked out on the bluest water he’d ever seen and a golf course was stationed a stone’s throw from his front entrance. Dreams turned into reality in 1990 when the Ocean Club opened on one of Grace Bay’s prime sections of beachfront.
