Fourth of July Fun at The Somerset

Happy Independence Day from your friends at The Somerset on Grace Bay! At The Somerset, we celebrated this American holiday in style as guests relaxed on the beach, lounged by the pool or participated in our Fourth of July Fair! Caicos Kids Club hosted its family-friendly event on the croquet lawn, and kids and parents gathered for games, activities and celebration. Everyone enjoyed sweet treats, including snow cones, popcorn and cotton candy! The group was abuzz with excitement as guests and staff competed in a pie-eating contest, but energy was at an all-time high as the kids played in the inflatable bounce house. Overall, it was a wonderful day of celebration and we appreciate everyone who spent the day with us. From our family to yours, we hope you had a day filled with many treasured times!

A Caribbean Christmas at The Somerset

This winter, the Polar Vortex has hit the US and Canada like the Polar Express. As a result, many guests escaped their city’s frigid temperatures and headed to Turks & Caicos to enjoy a Caribbean Christmas. Treasured Times were celebrated by guests of all ages, as families traded snowmen for holiday sand sculptures. Santa Claus even traveled all the way from the North Pole to make a special appearance at The Somerset. The jolly man in red helped spread holiday cheer, as he delivered cookies to guests on the beach! From our family to yours, we hope you had a very merry Christmas filled with many treasured times!   Save Save
