BOLD - Inspiration for Travellers

Best New Hotel Openings 2021

Not every vacationer wants to lounge poolside with a cocktail in hand, whiling away the hours. For those who prefer to maintain their active lifestyle while on vacation, H2O Life.Style Resort just might be the perfect getaway. Start the day with a yoga session on the beach and a healthy smoothie at HangTime Bar, then head out for an afternoon of kiteboarding on the turquoise waters of Long Bay Beach (one of the most sought-after beaches for water sports enthusiasts from around the world).

The brainchild of two Canadians living in Turks and Caicos, Rob Ayer and Nicolas Boucher, this oceanfront wellness resort was specifically designed for active travellers who appreciate sustainable design. While it’s close to all the action, the secluded enclave is tucked away in a lush four acres of protected green space, while the shallow Caicos Banks offers ideal conditions for kiteboarding, kitesurfing, windsurfing, wing-foiling and Hobie sailboats (a kiteboarding school is conveniently located within the resort).

The extensive health and wellness program includes weekly rooftop yoga, tennis courts and a 24- hour state-of-the-art fitness centre. Ultra-modern suites, with furnishings by Restoration Hardware, come in a range of layouts for groups of all sizes, all with large picture windows and walkout terraces that look out onto the turquoise waters. Relax, recharge — and burn off a few calories, too.
