The 9 Best Turks and Caicos Private Island and Boutique Hotels

sailboats at Grace Bay Beach
Hobie Cat sailboats on Grace Bay Beach. This world-famous coast is the center of activity in the Turks and Caicos, and doesn't offer the seclusion it once did.

The Turks and Caicos offers a small yet select collection of luxury hotels that combine seclusion, privacy, and an incredible coastal setting. The properties shown offer a level of tranquility and luxury not found at many of the well-known Grace Bay Resorts.

Due to the world-wide popularity of Grace Bay Beach, it shouldn’t be a surprise that not many hotels on the famous beach have made this list. We do however list the properties on Grace Bay that offer higher levels of privacy and tranquility. None of the hotels on this page offer much nightlife, and the private cay and remote destinations are especially so.

As many of the hotels shown here are remote, assistance with transportation may be provided. For those properties located on private island, complimentary transit via ferry or small aircraft may be included.For an overview of vessel types and travel times, see Getting Around the Turks and Caicos.

The Meridian Club on the private island of Pine Cay is high on our list of top secluded hotels in the Turks and Caicos largely due to the exception beach on the north shore of the cay. To the eastern side of this beach are the picturesque sand bars between Pine Cay and Fort George Cay, and to the west is a spectacular stretch of white sand coast that leads from Pine Cay, to Water Cay, to Half Moon Bay, and finally Little Water Cay. This is continous beach is truly breathtaking on a calm day.

The hotel itself, having originated in the early 1970s with Count Ferdinand Czernin of Austria-Hungary, is small, with some elements being a bit dated, yet overall the retreat offers an ‘Old Caribbean’ ambiance, which is something that is increasingly rare.

Accommodation include one or two bed rooms, standalone cottages, and villas on the cay that are managed by the hotel. Amenities include a pool at the resort, complimentary guest use of kayaks, paddle boards, and a Hobie Cat sailboat, a spa, and fitness center. Transit to the island from the Providenciales, the island where all scheduled international flights land, is typically via a small ferry. The cay has an airstrip suitable for light aircraft.

Resort Qualities

Good: The Meridian Club is located on an exceptional beach and extensive beach. The cay offers a laid-back yet sophisticated atmosphere, and is very quiet and peaceful. Of the private cay destinations, Pine Cay offer the best accessibility to Providenciales. The Meridian Club offer all-inclusive packages for those that desire such.

Shortcomings: Possible negatives are the limited dining options. Rooms are little smaller and more dated than some of the other private island hotels. On-island services are limited, and are largely confined to what the resort offers, however, charters are however easy to arrange from Providenciales. The Fort George Cay and Water Cay areas can see some boat and jet ski traffic during the day. After times of heavy rains, there can be mosquitoes and biting midges.

Sailrock is an upscale resort and development on the highly-scenic northern peninsula of South Caicos. The resort accommodations are contemporary and standalone villas, with both beachfront and ocean view options. The resort main house and adjacent grounds offer the Great House Restaurant and a Na Spa.

Sailrock and East Bay Resort, both on South Caicos, offer a unique combination of secluded luxury, yet accessibility to a small fishing settlement largely untouched by tourism, so a vacation to South Caicos won’t feel quite as isolated as a trip to one of the private cays.

The resort offers two contrasting beaches. The eastern coast on the peninsula is a long, wide, and windswept beach. To the west is the sheltered and calm Cove Beach.

Resort Qualities

Good: South Caicos is an exceptional destination for many water sports, and Sailrock is located in the general region of one of the most scenic spots in the Turks and Caicos. For enthusiasts willing to go further afield, it’s difficult to find a more spectacular location for exploring, bonefishing, kayaking, paddle boarding, and kiteboarding.

Shortcomings: The larger east coast Long Beach at the resort can be rough and choppy during windy days, and sargassum is often present in at least small quantities. The smaller Cove Beach (Sailrock West Beach) however is nearly always clean.

On some days, Malcolm’s Road Beach and the water off shore is busier that would be expected at the remote location. Being on the sheltered side of Providenciales, there can be mosquitos after heavy rains.

Le Vele is one of the few Grace Bay hotels that offers a good level of tranquility, both on the property and on the beach fronting it. Grace Bay Beach has become quite popular over time, yet does have some relatively undeveloped stretches that tend to be very quiet. One such area is the coast between Le Vele and Point Grace.

Le Vele is a contemporary architecture hotel that isn’t quite as expansive as many other properties on Grace Bay. The site was designed for luxury residences, so rooms suites are spacious, with full kitchens and high quality finishes and fittings.

Visitors could spend nearly the entirety their stay in the Turks and Caicos at many of the other properties shown here, as other sites are larger and offer restaurants and other luxury services. In the case of Le Vele, guests will likely want to travel offsite to restaurants, or perhaps a visit to the Provo Golf Club and spa.

Resort Qualities

Good: Beautiful beach, large spacious rooms, and many shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Shortcomings: No onsite restaurant or spa.

Resort Qualities

Good: Guests have free access and complimentary transport to the all-inclusive Blue Haven Resort and Alexandra Resort. The beach fronting Beach House is typically quite calm, and snorkeling reefs are within walking distance.

Shortcomings: The Bight community can be noisier than many of the other locations mentioned here. The section of beach fronting the hotel tends not to see as many people as the beach access to the east and west, yet is far busier than the secluded beaches and cays of the other hotels.

Resort Qualities

Good: Great onsite restaurant, beautiful beach, and elegant ambiance.

Shortcomings: Point Grace is located on Forbes Point, which is a slightly defined point along the beach. As the area is a bit more exposed, the water can consequently be a little rougher than at other locations, especially on the eastern side of the point. There is also boat traffic off the point due to the natural constriction.
