Relaxing in ultimate luxury is certainly an appealing thought for many, and idyllic destinations such as Bora Bora, the Maldives, Fiji, or even the Caribbean will likely be at the forefront of your mind. However, we would argue that Alabama’s Gulf Coast is equally relaxing, especially if you are consider staying at the ultimate luxury accommodation option along this stretch of coastline.
Turquoise Place by Spectrum Resorts is located in Orange Beach, Alabama and offers everything you could wish for in terms of a relaxing getaway. Having stayed at Turquoise Place on several occasions, we are eager to share our experiences and perhaps inspire others to consider adding this as their preferred condo of choice when planning a trip to the Gulf Coast.
The Pinnacle of Luxury
Can you imagine any better way to start your Gulf Coast vacation than by waking up early in the morning in your luxurious condo and heading out to your spacious balcony overlooking the Gulf?
Maybe have someone in your group take the short drive down the coast to The Southern Grind Coffee House (or one of the many other awesome local coffee shops in Gulf Shores and Orange Beach), grab everyone’s favorite espresso, before spending some time on the balcony and admiring the breathtaking sunrise that this stretch of Alabama coastline is infamous for (at least in our opinion).

Of course, the beauty of staying at Turquoise Place and the incredible amenities inside the condos, is that you rarely need to venture off property, though our soft spot for these awesome local coffee shops is something that we encourage you all to experience also. We will share more on the amenities later, but just contemplating the thought of listening to the waves from the Gulf of Mexico, and admiring the sight of the 32 miles of pristine beaches, is certainly enough to make us to want to return sooner rather than later.
Turquoise Place Rental Options
As mentioned, guests can choose from 3, 4, or 5-bedroom condos, all of which are equipped with amenities, and relaxing decor that will likely make you reconsider your design options at home. The condos feature a fully stocked kitchen complete with top of the line appliances by Sub-Zero, Wolf and Kitchen Aid.
Enjoy spectacular, unparalleled views of dolphins playing in the Gulf of Mexico from the spacious balcony which also features a gas grill, and hot tub (as of April 2023, Turquoise Place is taking the luxury experience to the next level by installing brand new hot tubs in all properties).
During our recent visit to Orange Beach, we stayed in a spacious, 3-bedroom condo that epitomized everything there is to love about Turquoise Place. From the relaxing living room space to the jacuzzi tub in the master bedroom, we fell in love with what we consider to be pure luxury.
Every morning we would wake up and head outside to enjoy the sunrise, before heading inside to enjoy a light breakfast thanks to the awesome amenities available. The Kitchen-Aid ice machine in the bar area was perhaps my favorite appliance, especially given that it was frequently used throughout our stay.
With a laundry room featuring a full-size washer and dryer available, everything you could wish for was inside this condominium.
While staying at Turquoise Place is primarily about the incredible condos on offer, you cannot help but also enjoy the selection of other amenities that truly creates this epic experience. Although Turquoise Place is not really considered an “all-inclusive” resort, I would argue that it perhaps could be given that you rarely need to leave with everything on offer.
The lazy river is the perfect place to float around while catching up on your tan, or the indoor and outdoor pool areas are ideal for relaxing or enjoying some family fun before heading down to the beach. Be sure to rent beach chairs to ensure you have the perfect spot to relax, before venturing back upstairs to enjoy more luxurious facilities.
From a pool-side bar, to a dining experience for every appetite and occasion, Turquoise Place will ensure you never go hungry or thirsty. The seasonal complimentary breakfast at the Spectrum Club Lounge is certainly a great way to start the day, while if you prefer to grab a bite to eat later in the day, all guests enjoy a 10% discount on all dining and retail outlets at Turquoise Place.
For those of you looking to enjoy a little activity during your stay, head to the two full-size tennis courts just outside the indoor pool area, while for those that prefer pickleball, these courts are also striped for the shorter version. Complete with state of the art fitness equipment and located on the fourth floor level of each tower, the on-site gym is the perfect place to burn a few calories (though a stroll/run along the beach is equally appealing).
Cost vs Benefits
Many people reading this post will understandably think that there is one factor that deters them from staying at Turquoise Place – the cost! Is Turquoise Place worth the price? 100% yes!!
While at face value, Turquoise Place may be at the higher end of the budget spectrum, the larger condominiums (3, 4, or even 5 bedroom options) are perfect for friends and family to come together and book a vacation together. When you split the cost among multiple families, and with the knowledge that you are staying in perhaps the finest accommodation option on the Gulf Coast, this is definitely worth the price to pay for staying in such a luxurious experience.

Anyone planning a trip to Gulf Shores and Orange Beach should consider choosing Turquoise Place as their accommodation option. A once in a lifetime experience that will likely turn into you wanting to return time and time again. The difficult part will be on your day of departure, as you will likely not want to leave but be sure to enjoy every minute of your stay, as this is the perfect relaxing getaway for families, couples, and friends.
Everything about Turquoise Place epitomizes pure luxury, and we hope that you will enjoy the experience as much as we do every time we visit our favorite beachfront destination!
