I just returned from a 7-day stay at the Venetian and had to share our experience with anyone searching for the best place to stay on Grace Bay! We were a group of four friends in our 50's who have collectively stayed all over the world and in multiple places on Grace Bay and each of us has vowed to return to The Venetian as soon as possible! After personally staying at other locations with my family and really taking the time to look at other resorts first-hand during our prior visits, I know that we would be disappointed by comparison if we stayed anywhere else. We stayed in Penthouse 701, which was beautifully decorated and furnished with everything that we could possibly need (beautiful robes, linens, beach towels, a blender, ice-maker and ice bucket, a media room with surround sound, a ball and claw soaking tub in the master bath, fabulous toiletries, a safe, full-size washer and dryer in a large laundry room, a telephone preloaded for local phone calls, etc). After taking in the breathtaking and uninterrupted panoramic views of the ocean and Grace Bay as we entered the Penthouse, we were in awe of the open and expansive floor plan. We had three bedrooms with ensuite baths, a separate powder room, a very large kitchen with full-size appliances and a long counter with comfortable bar stools (all four ladies enjoyed occasionally cooking in the kitchen at the same time!), dining and living areas, a large media room with a pull out sofa, a wrap-around terrace that included a huge enclosed area with a second dining able and a separate seating area. Everything was new and very high-end. The comfort and beauty of the Penthouse persuaded us to stay in and lounge and eat simple meals with great wine on a few evenings. Our "life of leisure" was made possible by the phenomenon housekeeping staff. Each day the dishwasher was run and emptied, bottled water was replenished for each of us, clean beach towels were placed in the laundry room and the whole unit was completed cleaned while we were out. Even though Provo is a relatively safe location, it was comforting to know that the resort is gated (you receive a key fob with a remote that opens the gate) and there is on-site security. I wish I could take the groundskeepers home with me! Each day they were quietly pruning, weeding or cleaning and the results of their hard work were evident in the gorgeous landscaping which was both lush and manicured. Every morning we found our way down to the lounge chairs, tables and umbrellas that were waiting for us on the ocean where we immediately dropped our towels, cover ups, etc and went into the warm and clear blue water. We took long walks in both directions along the beach. Some days we had a light lunch on the terrace or brought it down to the beach. On other days we walked to the Grace Bay Club, Seven Stars and once we even walked to the Gansvoort at the other end of Grace Bay for lunch and (well-deserved!) drinks.
Coleen Chang and Terria Misick are the wizards behinds the curtain when it comes to the magic that is The Venetian. Before and during our stay they helped us figure out a wonderful itinerary of dining, activities and transportation (taxis and the use of free bicycles) and when our plans changed, they happily helped us reschedule. Each of us commented on their amazingly helpful and cheerful dispositions multiple times during our stay. They truly care about their guests and do everything in their power to ensure that guests enjoy every aspect of their vacation.
I seldom take the time to write reviews but if I ever felt motivated to spend my time and energy recommending a destination, this is it. I hope it is as helpful to readers as other reviews have been to me.
