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.
For families and groups, it's also worth considering some of our beautiful villas, which offer more space, privacy, some great amenities, and may also be on an incredible beach. See Vacation Rentals, and Best Family Villas. We also have several private island hotels, and boutique resorts.
The following resorts are in no particular order!
The exquisite beach and turquoise water at Ocean Club.
Ocean Club is found on the uncrowded eastern side of Grace Bay Beach, and close to the longest undeveloped stretch of the famous white sand coast. The resort offers a full range of accommodations, from 1 bed studios, to 1, 2, and 3 bedroom suites. Everything considered, Ocean Club offers is one of the best values in a Grace Bay beachfront resort, and is family-friendly.
Resort amenities include Cabana, a beachfront restaurant and bar, a fitness center, pool, plenty of beach loungers with shade, and access to the amenities of the sister resort of Ocean Club West. The award-winning Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club is located a short walk away, and the popular Opus and Ricky’s restaurants are directly adjacent to the resort.
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 and one of the top destinations in the Caribbean.
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. Point Grace and West Bay Club on the Bight Beach are also part of the Grace Bay Club group of properties.
Alexandra Resort is an all-inclusive property located on an excellent stretch of Grace Bay Beach, and can be a great getaway choice for families seeking the simplicity of an all-inclusive stay on an amazing beach, yet don’t need access to a water park or 21 restaurants.
The resort features studios and one, two, and three bedroom suites. Studios have kitchenettes, and suites have full kitchens. All rooms have safes, TVs, and air-conditioning.
There’s a great range of amenities and things to do, including a lagoon-like pool, kayaks, paddleboards, Hobie Cat sailboats, beach volleyball, and bicycles.
Another feature of Alexandra Resort is that it’s part of the Turks and Caicos Collection group of hotels. Guests staying at the Alexandra have complementary access to the amenities and dining of the counterpart property of Blue Haven Resort. Blue Haven is located at Leeward Going Through and near Mangrove Cay, so there’s great kayaking and paddleboarding in the area. Complimentary transport is provided between resorts.
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 early 2018 to repair damages caused by Hurricane Irma in late 2017.
The resort is a 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 quieter sections of Grace Bay make it a tranquil choice. Choose from a range of suites and elegant penthouse options.
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 center of Grace Bay Beach, and is situated on one of the best stretches of the world-famous beach. This 115 room beach resort 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 colors of Grace Bay.
Long Bay is famous as a kiteboarding location, as the shallow water and wind direction create unparalleled kiting conditions.
Wymara Resort 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 snorkeling as they attract green turtles and hawksbill turtles, eagle rays, stingrays, and starfish.
Wymara features the complete plethora of non-powered water sports, two restaurants, a spa, and a beautiful pool.
A counterpart to the main resort is Wymara Villas, a luxury vacation rental enclave located on the south coast at Turtle Tail. The elegant and contemporary villas here overlook the breathtaking turquoise of the Caicos Banks.
The beautiful beach and water at Ocean Club West on Grace Bay Beach.
Ocean Club West
A counterpart resort to Ocean Club on the eastern side of Grace Bay, Ocean Club West is centrally located near Grace Bay Club and the shopping plazas of Ports of Call, One Season, and Caicos Café Plaza.
The hotel features studios and 1, 2, and 3 bedroom suites, and has an onsite spa, Solana restaurant, a fitness center, tennis courts, and a beautiful free-flowing pool.

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 celebrities.
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.
