Caribbean Journal: At Turks and Caicos’ Ocean Club, The Joy of the Beach

By Tim Cotroneo
CJ Contributor

A color like you’ve never seen before.

That’s what thrills first time travelers and tugs at the hearts of returning guests at Ocean Club West in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

Turquoise blue, green, and all shades in between.

The ocean colors coming at you on Grace Bay Beach are jolting, intense, and intoxicating. Grace Bay’s world class beach is why vacationers choose Providenciales, the tourism hub of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The beauty of staying at Ocean Club West is you never know which brilliant shade will appear as you step out to experience this color-popping Caribbean visual.

The owners of Ocean Club Resorts knew what they were doing when Ocean Club West opened in 1999. That’s because there was already an Ocean Club East which first appeared on Grace Bay back in 1992.

The owners had figured out a Caribbean hospitality success formula with their first resort located one mile down the road. They doubled down on the possibilities for Ocean Club guests by offering twice the amenities with two resorts.

Let’s Do It Again

That’s right, guests staying at Ocean Club West can access all the services, dining, and oh yes, extraordinary ocean views at the original Ocean Club East. To make this ocean color feast twice as easy, Ocean Club offers a shuttle to and from the two properties every 30 minutes. For those who prefer a healthy wind in your hair way of commuting, there are also free bicycles at your service.

If there is any doubt that guests are enamored with Ocean Club’s photogenic sister to the West, realize that 2019 is a record year. The buzz created by Ocean Club West’s picture-perfect ocean color has translated to a steady 92 percent occupancy. If you’re thinking this demand means crowdedness, think again. That issue is one in which Ocean Club is so forward thinking.

A unit at Ocean Club West.

Ocean Club West is beyond spacious. Amidst a pool meets garden-like setting, there are only 86 suites. The suites range from studios to uber-spacious three-bedrooms with kitchens, living areas, and ample balconies offering ocean views. Ocean Club insiders delight in another success secret upon walking out on famed Grace Bay Beach.

Why Grace Bay is a Vacation Treasure

Think of most any other number one ranked travel attraction in the world and you’re usually inhaling because of the crowds. Grace Bay Beach is the delightful exception to this rule.

Despite its international reputation for beauty, you can walk, swim, or sail on Grace Bay Beach throughout the year, and have many parts of this ocean oasis all to yourself. This best kept secret is another reason why Ocean Club West went all in with a second resort.

Okay, so we’ve established that Ocean Club West is a wonderful choice for accommodations. You may be asking, “What else can we do on this colorful island playground?

Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner by the Sea

Foodies listen up. Imagine starting your morning with a hot cup of coffee, fresh fruit, and the soothing sounds of ocean waves. Okay, let’s up the ante. To further rejuvenate your senses, let’s throw in a signature view of the Caribbean Sea during breakfast, lunch, and dinner?

Realize these delicious scenarios are something that Ocean Club West guests relish each day when satisfying their hunger palette. If an authentic Caribbean holiday is high on your Turks and Caicos priority list, Ocean Club has you covered.

Fresh catch seafood, jerk chicken, and Providenciales’ trademark conch salad are all options at Ocean Club West’s newly refurbished Solana restaurant. Head down the beach to Ocean Club East, and you’ll find the toes in the sand Cabana Bar, along with fine dining at Opus Restaurant. From a refreshment standpoint with an island kick, ask for a locally brewed Turk’s Head Beer or one of Ocean Club’s vast array of rums.

Explore the True Colors of Providenciales

Yes, Ocean Club West is the ultimate destination for just relaxing on the beach. But why not explore all the beautiful Turks and Caicos Islands have to offer?

Provo Golf Club is located across the street from Ocean Club East and just a mile from your stay at Ocean Club West. Provo is annually ranked one of the best 18-hole courses in the Caribbean.

If you can’t get enough of life on the water, book a snorkeling excursion that includes setting foot on an uninhabited island. Another way to get in touch with your inner Caribbean is by experiencing a kayak tour through the mangroves. If island hopping sounds like a great way to spend the day, ask the Ocean Club West for details on taking a ferry to North or Middle Caicos.

Sunsets Like No Other

A major part of the Ocean Club master strategy is where their two resorts are positioned on Grace Bay Beach. East and West’s prime beach location plays an integral part in a late afternoon tradition that guests can’t get enough of.

You’ll discover that sunsets at Ocean Club West’s Solana Restaurant and at Ocean Club East’s Cabana Bar are the best of times for making memories. Each evening, guests snuggle up to a favorite cocktail, or a significant other, as they watch Grace Bay’s sky transform into amazing shades of gold, bronze, and orange.

As the sun plunges like a giant gumdrop into the Caribbean Sea, guests raise their glasses to toast. Are they thanking the Ocean Club West owners and staff for creating this magic moment? Or are they saying, “I can’t wait until my next Turks and Caicos vacation to experience colors like I’ve never seen before.”

Puerto Rico News Videos from Michael_Novakhov (20 sites): WIPR: Avanzan en detección de cáncer mediante análisis de sangre

Una empresa de California dice que su análisis de sangre experimental permitió detectar muchos tipos de cáncer en fase temprana y dio muy pocas falsas alarmas en un estudio con personas con y sin el mal.

Grail Inc. dio a conocer los resultados en un comunicado de prensa el viernes y los presentará el sábado en la reunión de la Sociedad Estadounidense de Oncología Clínica en Chicago. No los ha publicado en una revista especializada ni sometido a revisión por otros científicos.

Muchas empresas intentan crear los análisis llamados “biopsias líquidas” que capturan filamentos de ADN vertidos por células cancerosas en la sangre para lograr la detección temprana.

El jueves, científicos de la Universidad Johns Hopkins lanzaron una compañía llamada Thrive Earlier Detection Corp. para desarrollar su análisis CancerSEEK, que dio resultados similares al de Grail hace más de un año.

Grail ha atraído más de 1.000 millones de dólares en inversiones de Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates y otras celebridades del mundo empresarial.

Los nuevos resultados abarcaron a 2.300 personas, el 60% con cáncer y el 40% que por lo que se sabe no lo padecen. La tasa de detección fue superior _76%_ para una docena de cánceres que en conjunto comprenden casi dos tercios de las muertes por cáncer en Estados Unidos, entre ellos los tumores de pulmón, páncreas, esófago y ovario.

El análisis solo detectó un tercio de los cánceres en su etapa inicial, pero hasta el 84% que se habían extendido pero no ampliamente.

También indicó la localización del cáncer en el 94% de los casos y acertó el 90% de ellos.

Eso es lo más alentador, porque uno no quiere decirle a alguien que posiblemente tiene cáncer y después tener que realizar toda una serie de análisis para localizarlo, dijo el doctor Richard Schilsky, médico jefe de la sociedad oncológica.

“Tienen mucho camino por recorrer” para demostrar la validez del análisis como cribado, pero los resultados son alentadores, insistió.

No se ha comparado el análisis de Grail con la mamografía, la colonoscopía u otras herramientas de cribado, y la intención no es que las reemplace, dijo el científico jefe de la empresa, doctor Alex Aravanis. No existen análisis cribados para varios cánceres mortíferos detectados por el análisis de Grail, señaló.

No está claro qué pruebas exigirá la Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos (FDA, por sus siglas en inglés) para dar su aprobación. A veces para los análisis se busca la acreditación de los laboratorios, más flexible que la aprobación de la FDA.

Grail y Thrive han iniciado mayores estudios.

“No vamos a diagnosticar cada cáncer”, pero tal vez no sea necesario porque hay muchos que solo se los detecta cuando ya es tarde para que el tratamiento sea eficaz, dijo la doctora Minetta Liu, oncóloga de la Clínica Mayo que presentará los resultados de Grail en la conferencia sobre cáncer.

Puerto Rico News Videos from Michael_Novakhov (20 sites): WIPR: Esperan tendencia de reducción precio de gasolina en las bombas

(CyberNews) – El expresidente de la Asociación de Detallistas de Gasolina (ADG), Ricardo Román dijo el viernes que espera que el precio de la gasolina comience a bajar en las próximas semanas.

Esto ante la baja en los costos del barril del crudo, que no se ha reflejado en el precio de la gasolina en la isla.

“Ayer (jueves) se reflejó ya una rebaja en el costo a los que compramos, lo que nos faculta a bajar un centavo en el litro. Esperaríamos que esa tendencia comience ya. Hemos visto la cotización del barril de petróleo y obviamente no se han sentido los precios que observando que son los que los mayoristas nos reflejan a nosotros”, dijo Román en entrevista radial (WKAQ).

Indicó que actualmente el litro de gasolina en Puerto Rico están entre 75 y 78 centavos. Según se ha informado, recientemente el barril de petróleo ha reflejado los 55 dólares aproximadamente.

“Nosotros como detallistas no tenemos esos controles. Quien puede responder a esa pregunta es el secretario del Departamento de Asuntos del Consumidor que tiene la facultad de examinar las facturas de los mayoristas, que son los que importan el producto y establecen los precios que rigen este mercado”, explicó Román a preguntas de por qué no se refleja la baja en las bombas.
