The Somerset Celebrates 10th Anniversary

The Somerset on Grace Bay marked its 10th Anniversary with a well-attended Beach Party BBQ on Tuesday, November 15, 2016. Guests were treated to the usual spectacular Providenciales sunset as tropical rum punches were passed about. Executive Chef Brad Townsend and his highly regarded Pavilion restaurant team prepared a succulent beach dinner that included a wide variety of freshly caught local seafood. The crowd was entertained by local musicians, including our talented Managing Director Urmas Karner. Of course, “DJ Snoopi” (known during the day as Bellman Winston Bent) spun tunes into the night, and the dance floor filled up accordingly. There was even a visit from the island’s premier fire eater (who gave a very ‘hot’ performance!) and Chinese Wish Lanterns were sent aloft over Grace Bay. On behalf of The Somerset on Grace Bay, we appreciate our cherished guests and dedicated staff. Many staff members have been working at…

July Winner: 10 Years of Treasured Times

In 2016, we are celebrating The Somerset on Grace Bay‘s 10th anniversary and asking past guests to share their most treasured time. Each month, we will be giving away a free 3-night stay for 2. Congratulations to Elyse Levandowski who is the July winner in our Treasured Times Contest. Elyse’s Treasured Time Elyse’s family lives throughout the East Coast, and it generally takes a lot of planning to get the entire group together. Now that all of the siblings are working, married and “grown up,” they don’t get together as often as they previously have. To encourage more togetherness, they decided that as each of them turned 30 years old, he or she would pick a vacation destination and invite the entire family to join. Elyse’s sister was the first to turn the big 3-0. Since most of the group had not visited a tropical location before, Grace Bay seemed like the perfect fit and they…
