If there’s a heaven on Earth, then there’s little doubt that it’s located somewhere in Turks and Caicos. This tiny emerald island surrounded by a sparkling blue sea is one of the islands in the British Overseas Territory in the Caribbean. A well-known offshore financial center and one of the top vacation destinations for the well to do, if you’re looking for deluxe accommodations on this little island paradise, you’re in luck. Below, we’ll feature the best of the best where hotels on the island are concerned, and tell you what you can expect when you book a stay there. All prices referenced are current as of the writing of this piece, though understand that they are subject to change at any time. Also note that all of the hotels listed below are five-star accommodations.
The Regent Grand Turks and Caicos
Built in 2008, and facing world renowned Grace Bay Beach, you’ll find a lot to like at The Regent. Offering one, two, or three-bedroom suites for the discerning traveler, all suites are appointed with state of the art, stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, LCD televisions, and private balconies and terraces. Beds are made with 400 thread count Egyptian cotton linens. The grounds are meticulously landscaped, and concierge service is available to all guests. Prices range from $400 to $2199 a night, depending on the type of room you’d like to book.
Located on a lush, beautifully landscaped 12-acre estate, The Palms has been built with beautiful, hand-cut coral stone, and features one, two, and three-bedroom suites, no less than 1800 square feet in size and all furnished with beautiful, custom mahogany furnishings and marble floors. All suites have vaulted ceilings and private terraces, most with exquisite ocean views. The hotel also features a massive 15,000 square foot spa, with its own restaurant. Concierge service is available to all guests. Prices range from $1000 to $1850 per night.
Made up of 40 timber-shingled pavilions, each with an identical layout, you won’t find a more serene, private setting to take your vacation than Amanyara. Nestled between the beach on one site, and a 5000 acre nature preserve on the other, you’ll find lots to enjoy here, without ever leaving the confines of the hotel and the adjoining preserve.
Despite its isolation, Amanyara is state of the art, and provides round the clock maid, vale, room and concierge service. Should you desire to leave the compound, you can charter a cruise or fishing expedition on-site. Price here start at $1500 a night, and range all the way up to $25,000 a night for their six-bedroom villa, with plenty of room for your entire family.
Located along Grace Bay, Seven Stars offers you the feel of privacy and seclusion, without taking you too far off the beaten path. You’re just minutes from all that the island has to offer. Featuring, two, three, and four-bedroom suites with state of the art furnishings and amenities (including marble floors in the suites themselves), round the clock concierge service, private balconies, and some of the most gorgeous views the island has to offer, a stay at Seven Stars is quite possibly the perfect Caribbean experience. Prices at the resort start at a surprisingly modest $525 a night, and can run as high as $3225 a night.
Providing the perfect blend of accessibility and tranquility, West Bay Club is one of the most popular resort destinations on Turks and Caicos. Located on the shores of Grace Bay, the resort’s oceanfront suites offer breathtaking views of the ocean, which is just steps from your door. You won’t even have to go outside to enjoy the view, because all of the oceanfront suites feature floor to ceiling windows, bringing paradise to you, even when you’re inside.
With only 47 rooms in the resort, the entire staff is dedicated to giving you and your family a highly personalized experience, and you can call on them twenty-four hours a day to meet all your needs. The suites themselves are full-featured, with deluxe audio/video equipment and fully equipped kitchenettes with premium appliances. The best part is, their prices are more affordable than you might think, starting at just $417 a night. Note, however, that they can go as high as $1850.
Gansevoort At Turks and Caicos
This luxury hotel doesn’t cut any corners when it comes to giving you a world-class experience. Each of their 91 guestrooms is a beautiful, sensual island, filled with delights. Unlike many five-star accommodations, which offer furnishings with a certain Old World appeal, Gansevoort’s décor is sleek and modern. For those who love modernity, you’ll feel right at home here.
The views of the beach are just stunning, but if you’d rather stay away from the surf, then you’ll love the seven thousand square foot infinity pool. Featuring round the clock concierge service, a full spa, and an on-site restaurant and beach bar and grill, the Gansevoort resort must be experienced to be believed. Prices range from $645 to $2450 per night.
Best described as a “Boutique Resort,” this small, 21-room luxury resort is nestled on a quiet corner of Grace Bay and provides the ultimate in upscale accommodations and highly personalized service. The Beach House Restaurant, which is part of the resort proper, has some of the finest French cuisine you can get without going to Europe. The resort includes a full-featured spa and gym, and watersports equipment and bicycles are available to all guests, as is twenty-four hour a day concierge service.
If you’re looking for something quite, with highly individualized service, then a stay at the Beach House is exactly what you’re looking for. Best of all, prices here range from just $465 to $1025 per night.
There are, of course, other fine resorts on Turks and Caicos, but the ones we’ve mentioned here are the very best of the best. Each one a five-star, luxury experience. Each one capable of creating a vacation experience that will give you memories to last a lifetime!
