There exists a place so spectacularly attractive it defies logic. A place that is so remarkably magnetic and that exerts such a powerful effect upon those fortunate enough to experience its wonders that it changes a person. A place that is as much blissful state of mind as luxurious physical space. Where is this place, you ask? In case you missed the title, we're talking about the Gansevoort Turks and Caicos.

The focal point is the infinity pool - and chances are, the instant you see it you'll feel right in the groove. This breathtaking 7,000 sq. ft. chill zone is where the magic happens. The beautiful people are decked out in their best swimsuit attire and the DJ is spinning some sexy lounge music as the palms sway to the trademark rhythm. Folks are stretched out and vibing on the deck or on the exclusive island pods that seem to float on the infinity pool's surface. The staff also seem to float effortlessly around the pool delivering the perfect frozen snack and cocktails to help create the feeling of total bliss and beauty that is the Gansevoort Turks and Caicos.
