Turks and Caicos Resorts

Grace Bay Beach and Seven Stars Resort
Seven Stars resort on Grace Bay Beach.

The Turks and Caicos is home to a wonderful collection of resorts, found across several islands in our archipelago. A great place to start in the quest for the perfect Turks and Caicos resort is to decide which of our islands is right for you.

Grace Bay Beach, located on the island of Providenciales, hosts the majority of our luxury resorts, as well as many of the gourmet restaurants, spas, and shops. For most visitors, the Grace Bay area is the right place to stay.

Our less-populated islands don’t have the development that Providenciales has, yet do offer their own unique ambiances, and are excellent choices if quiet and tranquility are desired.

One of the defining features of the Turks and Caicos is our quantity of exceptional beaches. All of our inhabited islands have spectacular sugar-soft white sand beaches that perfectly-complemented by turquoise and blue ocean water.

Resort Locations

Water sports at the Club Med all-inclusive.

Our inhabited islands offer a wide ranging array of atmosphere, attractions, and dining. If you’re visiting the Turks and Caicos for a specific activity or ambiance, you’ll typically have the best experience if you choose the right island.

Another consideration is privacy and service. Many five-star properties are found on Grace Bay Beach, which offer world-class service and luxury, yet the Turks and Caicos is also home to several exclusive private islands, which offer unparalleled privacy and tranquility, which are perfect for an intimate couple’s getaway.

Providenciales Resorts

Most of the hotels and resorts in the Turks and Caicos are located on the island of Providenciales, with the majority of properties being located in the Grace Bay and adjacent Bight Beach region. Other areas and beaches, including Leeward and Long Bay Beach host a few resorts and boutique hotels, yet are primarily home to luxury villas and vacation homes.

Grace Bay Beach Resorts

Grace Bay Beach is the leading tourism location in the Turks and Caicos. The area is home to many luxury beachfront resorts, including properties such as The Ritz-Carlton, Seven Stars, Point Grace, The Palms, and the Grace Bay Club.

Some excellent value properties that are on the beach are Ocean Club, Ocean Club West, Royal West Indies, The Windsong, The Sands, Alexandra Resort, and Club Med Turkoise.

Our Outer Islands

Beyond Providenciales, there are not many large resorts to choose from, yet rather a varying collection of boutique hotels.

On South Caicos, East Bay Resort is a full-featured property, and has spacious suites, a wealth of amenities, and a spectacular location. A bit more secluded on South Caicos is Sailrock Resort, which rather is a luxury villa community layout. Both resorts excel for those that like to explore untouched nature.

North Caicos, Middle Caicos, and Grand Turk do not have any extensive resorts, but does have boutique and quaint hotels, including properties such as the Pelican Beach Hotel, Dragon Cay Resort, the Osprey Beach Hotel, and Turks Head Inne.

Private Island Resorts

Parrot Cay Resort in the Turks and Caicos
The exclusive and secluded Parrot Cay Resort.

Three exclusive private island retreats are located in the Turks and Caicos, and all provide high levels of service and seclusion.

Ambergris Cay is remote due to being located on the isolated south-eastern Caicos Banks, and is sparsely developed. The cay is home to some upscale private villas, and has a small collection of staffed and managed villas for short-term stays, which available through Ambergris Cay Resort.

Parrot Cay, found in the string of cays between Providenciales and North Caicos, has long attracted the rich and famous, having hosted a list of celebrities that include U.S. President Bill Clinton, Prince Edward, Bill Gates, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Barbra Streisand, Kate Moss, Taylor Swift, and many others. The COMO Parrot Cay Resort features a laid-back yet luxurious ambiance, and miles of beach that see very few visitors.

Pine Cay, also located between Providenciales and North Caicos, boasts of one of the finest stretches of beach in the Turks and Caicos, and like Parrot Cay, Pine Cay Resort offers a low-key and elegant setting. Transits to both Pine Cay and Parrot Cay are typically via small boat, which depart from the Leeward area of Providenciales.

All-inclusive Resorts

The Turks and Caicos has many all-inclusive resort options. Beaches Turks and Caicos, Club Med Turkoise, Blue Haven Resort, Alexandra Resort, and Ambergris Cay Resort are solely all-inclusive. East Bay Resort and The Windsong offer all-inclusive packages, in addition to conventional stays.

Family-Friendly Resorts

Unlike some other Caribbean destinations, many of the resorts and vacation villas in the Turks and Caicos are family and kid friendly, with an array of amenities and activities that appeal to all ages. Our pristine beaches and marine environment are of course a primary attraction, and many of the activity amenities at local resorts often rely on the beach and ocean. Boat charters, powered water sports, and snorkeling tours complement the on-site activities, and the property concierge is able to assist with booking excursions.

Sandals' Beaches all-inclusive is a bit of an exception, and offers a truly impressive collection of attractions and restaurants, with an emphasis towards families and children. On the property is a water park with a massive pirate ship, game arcades, many expansive pools, Sesame Street live entertainment, and island-hopping, snorkeling, and scuba diving boat excursions included with stays.

Adult-Only Resorts

Currently, Club Med Turkoise is the only resort that maintains a strict adult-only policy. However, several other properties provide experiences that are serene and quiet.

Club Med is an expansive all-inclusive resort, and the oldest still-operating property in the Turks and Caicos, and was a catalyst of the tourism industry on Providenciales. The resort offers a great selection of water sports, outdoor amenities, and attractions, including Hobie cat sailboats, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, windsurfers, scuba diving, snorkeling trips, and some great land sports as well.

Best Times to Visit

Weather and time of year is typically a foremost consideration when planning a Turks and Caicos vacation. The great news is that we typically have amazing weather and ocean water temperature year-round. The winter months are usually a little windier, and the summer and autumn months correspondingly calmer and hotter, yet at throughout the year we consistently have sunshine, little rain, and temperatures that are often between 75° (24°C) and 95° (35°C), with ocean water temperature that varies far less, and is often close to 80° (27°C).

As is common in the Caribbean, the Turks and Caicos experiences predictable rises and falls in tourist arrivals according to the time of year, with the winter “high season” months being the busiest and the end of summer and the fall “low season” having the lowest rates and greatest availability.

To encourage bookings, Turks and Caicos resorts often have lower rates or special offers during the low season, with rates that may be as much as half off the typical price. See Best Times to Visit and Budget Vacation Planning for more information.

On-site Restaurants

BLT Steak restaurant, located at The Ritz-Carlton on Grace Bay.

Over the last couple of decades, the Turks and Caicos and especially Providenciales have grown to be an exceptional culinary destination.

The Grace Bay region on Providenciales isn’t large, and there are typically many excellent restaurants within easy walking distance of the area’s resorts. A full range of cuisines is represented, including local and Caribbean flavors that incorporate fresh seafood, to Italian, French, Mediterranean and contemporary fusions.

For many, the connotation is that a resort should have its own on-site dining, as is our view. The properties shown here either maintain restaurants on site, or have direct and easy access to restaurants.

Amenities and Activities

Nearly all hotels and resorts in Turks and Caicos offer at minimum a basic range of amenities, including a swimming pool or multiple pools, beach loungers, a 24-hour staffed lobby, a fitness center or gym, a business center, and a restaurant and bar. The larger accommodations often include some extra services such as butler and concierge services, and activity amenities for guest to enjoy, such as Hobie Cat sailboats, ocean kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards.

The Turks and Caicos all-inclusive resorts of course bring a bit more in the way of complimentary amenities, with wider dining and restaurant options, spas, and in some cases free boat and snorkeling cruises.

Non-motorized water sports

The beaches and ocean in the Turks and Caicos is one of the finest playgrounds in the world, and resorts typically maintain a fleet of non-motorized water sports equipment which are perfect for fun on the water. Kayaks and paddle boards are easy to use, and a great workout too. Hobie Cats are small sailing catamarans, and are stable, very easy to sail, and can travel at exciting speeds.

Bookings and Getting the Best Rates

For the best Turks and Caicos resort rates, it’s generally best to contact your chosen accommodation directly. As they’ll often be able to save on third-party booking site commissions, resorts will often happy to share the savings, either in the way of extra perks, a free night or two, or directly with lower room rates. Last-minute specials are also often offered.

Vacation Packages

In some cases, a great way to save on vacation expenses is to select a package accommodation deal. These offers may be created by local resorts, local booking companies, or one of the international booking companies such as Expedia or Booking.com, and include the room, airfare, and a rental car. Packages can save you quite a bit, yet just as often may not be the least expensive option.

Avid scuba divers may be best served with a scuba diving deal, which can save a significant amount and is available from several resorts, including on Providenciales, Grand Turk, and Salt Cay.

Reservations and Cancellations

It’s a good idea to check the cancellation policies when booking a Turks and Caicos Vacation prior to booking, as some booking sites or properties may charge excessive fees or have onerous policies. Typically, if travel is disrupted due to threats from hurricanes or tropical storms, local properties are happy to work with guests to reschedule or refund bookings.

If you’d rather book a package vacation that doesn’t require the research and time investment of booking on your own, consider working with one of the established local booking companies. There are few such businesses, and they’ll go above and beyond to fix any problems that arise.

Taxes and Service Charge

Seven Stars on Grace Bay Beach.

Tax is imposed by the Turks and Caicos government are incurred on accommodation bookings, and other fees may apply as well.

Tourism Tax

Accommodation bookings in the Turks and Caicos incur a 12% tourism tax. This tax may be applied to extra fees added on to stays, an example of which is the excess electricity charges which may be incurred with some rental villas.

Service Charge and Facility Fees

Service Charge and Facility Fee are additional fees which may be applied to stays, and are structured by the government.

Service Charge must be charged by resorts and hotels. The law stipulates that this be 10%. Service charge is paid out to non-managerial property staff.

Properties may elect to charge a Facility Fee on stays. The law allows for this to be up to 5%. Nearly all resorts and hotels apply this fee. Facility fee is kept by the property.

Cleaning Fee

Some properties, primarily rental villas, may add a cleaning fee onto stays. This charge tends to vary by company and property size, but should be clarified when making the reservation. Cleaning fees are not imposed or structured by the government.

Refundable Security Deposits

Some properties, typically only rental villas, may charge a refundable security deposit or have a non-refundable property damage waiver. Not all properties charge such fees, and such fees are not imposed or structured by the government.
