The Turks and Caicos has several all-inclusive resorts to choose from. These accommodations range from the expansive Beaches Turks and Caicos and Club Med resorts, to smaller luxury resorts with all-inclusive packages.
This expansive Beaches Resort is located in central Providenciales on the western side of Grace Bay. The complex features four “village” enclaves, each with a slightly different theme. There’s a wonderful selection of water sports and activities to choose from, along with a water park, 6 swimming pools, and 20 restaurants and bars. Beaches is a great choice for families and children due to the countless things to do.
Unlike most other hotels and resorts, a free shuttle to and from the Providenciales International Airport (PLS) is included in your stay.
Amanyara Resort is found on the Northwest Point Marine National Park. It offer seclusion and luxury, with a price to match. The entire west coast of Providenciales that surrounds the resort is incredibly scenic, and teems with marine and bird life.
The concierge at Amanyara is able to arrange activities and transport for guests.
This site offers a great selection of water sports, and there’s always a party going on. The average room here can be a little small, but the price isn’t too bad there’s plenty to do.
It’s possible for visitors not staying at Club Med to buy a day or evening pass, which allows access to the resort’s activities and attractions.
Both rooms in the resort and stand-alone villas are available as accommodations, depending on personal preference and group size.
This resort is a natural choice for those simply looking for tranquillity and privacy. There’s an incredible beach, Lotus Restaurant, the Shambala Spa, and little more.
Do to the high regional crime rates, all-inclusive resorts are very popular and make sense in many other regional countries such as Jamaica, Mexico and the Bahamas. Fortunately, the Turks and Caicos is one of the safer countries in the Caribbean and consequently the considerations of an all-inclusive stay are a little different.
We don’t believe that staying at an all-inclusive is necessarily the best choice in the Turks and Caicos, but it may make sense depending on how you like to spend your vacation and what your budget is.
The total costs for an all-inclusive stay will usually be higher than the costs of a typical vacation, but dining and activity choices can really close the price gap. Restaurants and food in general are quite expensive in the Turks and Caicos, and three prepared meals and drinks per day can add up. In addition, some amenities offered by the all-inclusive resorts, such as complimentary scuba diving and spa treatments at Beaches Turks and Caicos, can make an all-inclusive resort a good choice from a financial perspective. The water park at Beaches can make this a good choice for families with children, whereas couple and adults may prefer the adults-only Club Med.
Both Beaches and Club Med are located directly on the beach, and offer rooms and suites with stunning ocean views.
Offsite activities and island day trips are also usually not included with all-inclusive packages. Other than non-powered watersport equipment use at the resort and some dive, snorkeling and boat cruise trips, you’ll pay for anything else out of your own pocket. Whereas some hotels and resorts include tee time at the Provo Golf Club, the major all-inclusive resorts do not.
One of our top recommended activities for visitors to Providenciales is to take a day trip to one of the country’s smaller islands. Spending a day away from your all-inclusive resort to visit another island or some of Providenciales’s smaller beaches can diminish the value of your vacation package.
