The Turks and Caicos is rapidly gaining global recognition as having some of the finest beaches in the world, and there’s little wonder why as incredible coasts are found on all of our islands.
Out of all the islands in the Turks and Caicos, Providenciales takes the lead in both the selection of luxury resorts, and in top beaches.
Several resorts on Providenciales offer
all-inclusive packages, if you’re looking for a simple vacation of sand, sea and sun.
The following resorts are in no particular order!
The Grace Bay Club Resort.
Grace Bay Club
Grace Bay Club was the original luxury resort on Providenciales, and was started before Grace Bay became widely known as the world’s best beach.
Grace Bay Club has greatly expanded from the original elegant hotel, and now features three resort enclaves, three restaurants, Anani Spa, and the full range of luxury amenities. Choose from suites or larger villa accommodations.
Blue Haven Resort is located in Leeward on Providenciales, and is one of the few resorts that can boast of a private beach. The resort is also a counterpart to the luxury
Blue Haven Marina, which caters to incredible yachts and cruisers from around the world.
Club Med Turkoise is the oldest large resort in the Turks and Caicos, and was initiated back when Providenciales didn’t even have a paved runway! It was also the first all-inclusive resort in the country.
Club Med has gone through several complete renovations through the years to keep up with the times, with the most recent ending in 2018 to repair damages caused by
Hurricane Irma in late 2017.
The resort is popular place for those seeking an active vacation, with great dining options, nightlife, and outdoor activities on both land and sea.
Club Med has always had a row of bright
Hobie Cat sailing catamarans lined up on the beach for guests to use – a testament to the resort’s wonderful collection of water sports and things to do.
The refined Point Grace Resort isn’t as large as many of the other Grace Bay hotels, which in addition to the resort’s location on one of the more quiet sections of Grace Bay make it a tranquil choice.
From the gourmet Grace’s Cottage restaurant to the resort’s 1965 Rolls Royce, Point Grace is an unforgettable retreat that’s perfect for either a quiet stay or an elegant destination wedding.
Seven Stars is an eye-catching and expansive resort in the centre of Grace Bay Beach, and is situated on one of the best stretches of the world famous beach. This 115 room retreat offers every luxury amenity you’d expect. Seven Stars features three restaurants, a spa, and fully outfitted suites.
The luxury Shore Club is one of the few resorts on Providenciales that’s not found on Grace Bay, instead opting for the more secluded coast of Long Bay Beach on the south side of Providenciales.
Long Bay is a bit different from Grace Bay yet is a likewise spectacular beach. The sand here is very fine and soft, the ocean depth is shallow, and the water hue is a bit more on the turquoise side of the spectrum rather than the topaz colours of Grace Bay.
Long Bay is famous as a
kiteboarding location, as the shallow water and wind direction create unparalleled kiting conditions.
Gansevoort is located on the western side of Grace Bay at the Bight Beach, which offers a slightly different character to central Grace Bay. The ocean here tends to be calmer, and lush seagrass grows further out in the water. The seagrass beds are great for
snorkelling as they attract green turtles and hawksbill turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, and starfish.
Gansevoort Resort features the complete plethora of non-powered water sports, two restaurants, a spa, and a beautiful pool.
Another elegant yet low key accommodation is Villa Renaissance. This quiet condo-hotel is within easy walking distance of
Regent Village and the
Saltmills Plaza, which are home to much of the
dining in the Grace Bay area.
The beach fronting Villa Renaissance tends to see less traffic than other areas of Grace Bay, not that Grace Bay is ever crowded!
The exclusive and secluded Amanyara Resort at Malcolm's Road Beach, Providenciales.
The remote and exclusive Amanyara resort is a top choice with the rich and famous, and has attracted many famous
Amanyara is located on
Malcolm's Road Beach, a coast that’s quite a bit different from what’s near other accommodations.
Malcolm’s Road Beach is part of the
Northwest Point Marine National Park, and is much closer to the deep water off of the underwater plateau that supports the Caicos Islands. Consequently, water hue is clear with an amazing blue hue, there are reefs to explore, and the area teems with marine wildlife.
