While many cities can boast a share of elite waterfront hotels with every amenity imaginable, none of them offer villas with swimming platforms cantilevered over the ocean like Wymara Resort and Villas in Turks and Caicos. Averaging more than 8,000 square feet with at least four bedrooms, each of the six new oceanfront villas sits on approximately a ½-acre of elevated hillside overlooking the bay at Turtle Tail, and each has its own infinity pool, stone-walled courtyard, sunken outdoor fire pit lounge and hardwood deck. Inside are chic interiors finished with Italian porcelain floors and dark wenge wood accents, plus rain showers and spa tubs that fill from the ceiling, along with floor-to-ceiling windows framing the movie-perfect blues of the Atlantic.

From San Francisco International Airport, the estimated time from takeoff to a blissful snorkel in teal-colored water is about 10 hours. Wymara is then a short 12-minute trip from Providenciales International Airport. For those who enjoy equal parts leisure (especially within the confines of the property’s spa, with its private shower gardens and fitness center facing the ocean) and adventure (typically in the form of deep-sea diving and fishing), Wymara is a sensible draw.

The hotel property (with 91 guest rooms total) also features Stelle and Zest restaurants, which offer Asian fusion and tropical cuisine, respectively. Sunset yoga, a spa for facials and organic body scrub treatments, and a 24-hour fitness center are a few of the amenities that await. Fantasy island, indeed.
