Turks and Caicos Islands
The Turks and Caicos is home to six all-inclusive resorts, four of which are located on world-famous Grace Bay Beach and one at Leeward on the island of Providenciales, and one is found on the private island of Ambergris Cay.
These six all-inclusive resorts represent a complete range of atmospheres and budgets, with private island experiences, adult-only, and family resort options. All six accommodations are beachfront and feature onsite spas and restaurants.
Beaches Turks and Caicos, part of the Sandals group of resorts in the Caribbean, is an extensive family-oriented resort, made up of four ‘village’ enclaves, and features by far the largest selection of dining and onsite attractions of any accommodation in the country. Beaches can be a great choice for families, especially for those with children in the younger teens and tweens.
Their impressive range of things to do include six huge swimming pools, 19 restaurants, a water park that’s complete with a pirate ship, and a full range of non-powered water sports equipment at the beach.
Accommodation classes range from basic one bedrooms to stand-alone 4 bedroom beachfront villas. 24 hour butler service is also available.
The Turks and Caicos Collection, a group of four luxury resorts that includes the Alexandra, Beach House, and Blue Haven Resort on Providenciales, and the exclusive Ambergris Cay Resort on the private and remote island of Ambergris Cay. Guest staying at one of the Providenciales resorts may utilize the amenities and dining across all three, and complimentary shuttle service is provided between the sites.
The Alexandra, Beach House, and Blue Haven Resort are great choices for those seeking a luxury all-inclusive stay, while avoiding the crowds of the larger resorts. Ambergris Cay Resort is unrivaled as a destination for seclusion, tranquility, and privacy.
The boutique Beach House is the only adult-only all-inclusive in the Turks and Caicos other than Club Med.
A great aspect of the Turks and Caicos Collection all-inclusive resorts is the beach setting at the three different Providenciales resorts. The Alexandra is on central Grace Bay Beach, with its unrivaled ocean and sugar-soft sand, Beach House is on a very calmest part of the beautiful Bight Beach and within easy access of interesting snorkeling reefs and sea grass beds, and Blue Haven Resort has its own private beach on Leeward Channel, and is directly adjacent to the incredible marine wetlands of Mangrove Cay and the Princess Alexandra Nature Reserve.
Ambergris Cay Resort is the newest member of the Turks and Caicos Collection. This exclusive luxury retreat offers a unique experience, and stays start with a charter flight via small island hopper from Providenciales to the cay, which is located on the remote south-eastern edge of the Caicos Banks. The island is a nature lover’s paradise, and is a critical habitat for many of our unique plants and animals, including the Turk’s Head Cacti, as well as the Turks and Caicos Islands Rock Iguana, rainbow boa, and Caicos boa, all three of which are critically endangered and extant only in our archipelago.
Ambergris Cay is sparsely developed, with a great range of coastlines, ranging from sheltered beaches to the wild eastern side exposed to the open ocean. Accommodation on the island are secluded villas, from intimate one bedrooms, to much larger houses.
Club Med Turkoise, an existent and quintessential Provo institution since 1984, is a top choice for those who like to party or are on a budget. This adult only resort is located on what may be the best stretch of Grace Bay Beach, with the widest swath of perfect white sand, and clear turquoise ocean water.
Onsite are a great range of non-powered water sports, and many organized outdoor events and outings. Dining and drinks are a bit limited compared to the other all-inclusive resorts on the island, yet is of course free and unlimited.
A few additional resorts in the Turks and Caicos feature limited all-inclusive packages. Such deals may not include unlimited food and drinks.
The Hemingway-esque Meridian Club on the private island of Pine Cay, which located a short boat trip to the east from Providenciales, has a package that includes breakfast, lunch, and dinner, boat transit to and from Provo on arrival and departure, and a morning snorkeling trip. Not included are drinks, spa and yoga treatments, and charters.
Pine Cay is home to one of the best beaches in the Turks and Caicos and many low-key vacation homes of the wealthy.
Windsong resort near the Bight Reef has an all-inclusive deal that incorporates breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and drinks at their restaurant, as well as an economy rental car for one day of your stay. Not included are room service.
Grand Turk has one small beachfront hotel with an all-inclusive option: the Bohio Dive Resort. This resort offers packages for both divers and non-divers. Dinner, beverages, and gratuities are not included.
When deciding which type of resort to stay at, a major consideration should be how you’d like to spend your vacation. The daily all-inclusive rates are typically much higher than normal room rates, yet dining and drink expenses add up fast.
If lounging at the beach or pool and convenient dining sounds like the ideal way to spend most of your vacation, you may be best served with an all-inclusive.
If you’d rather get out and explore our islands, beaches, coasts, and attractions, the traditional resort stay will likely make more sense cost-wise.
There are several inhabited islands in the Turks and Caicos, and each offers a unique blend of atmosphere, beaches, and levels of development. The island of Providenciales, where the majority of the development in the Turks and Caicos is located, is home to most of the all-inclusive resorts.
Ambergris Cay Resort is the only private island all-inclusive resort, but if you’re seeking such an escape, it’s worth considering some comparable resorts on other islands, that offer a similar experience (although not all-inclusive).
Sailrock, on the island of South Caicos, is a secluded resort and upscale residential project surrounded by breath-taking vistas. Due to the isolation and unique setting, stays at this luxury resort have the ambiance of a high end all-inclusive.
Parrot Cay Resort, which has hosted countless visiting celebrities, is another consideration. Parrot Cay is located near North Caicos, and combines privacy, a great beach, gourmet dining, and a full featured spa.
Amanyara resort on the island of Providenciales is on Malcolm's Road Beach and is bordered by two extensive protected areas: the Northwest Point Marine National Park, and the Frenchman’s Creek Nature Reserve. Both sites enhance Amanyara’s tranquility and beautiful atmosphere. This exclusive accommodation has isolated villas, which provide seclusion. The onsite fine dining restaurants incorporate produce grown at the resort’s own hydroponic garden.
The all-inclusive resorts often have an array of amenities to compliment the unparalleled beaches and marine environment of the Turks and Caicos.
Many resorts maintain a collection of water sports equipment, which typically includes small Hobie Cat sailboats, ocean kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and windsurfers.
Club Med and Beaches also provide a number of boat cruises, snorkeling tour, and scuba diving trips, most of which may be taken at no additional charge.
The list of things to do at Beaches is quite impressive, especially for children. There are six swimming pools, a water park with pirate ships, water cannons water slides and a lazy river, live entertainment, and game arcades. For grownups, there is the spa and boutique shopping.
Club Med provides lessons and support for a great collection of sports both on water and land. Their “sports schools” cover many water sports, trapeze, tennis, beach volleyball, football, and fitness.
The dining options of an all-inclusive are another important consideration, and vary according to each accommodation. With 19 restaurants, Beaches Resort leads with the dining and drink options and policies. There are no set dinner times, and you may choose any restaurant you’d like. There’s no additional charge for premium spirits. There’s a wide array of cuisines represented and dining atmospheres.
The other Providenciales resorts have varying dinner policies and drink inclusions. Most include all meals and drinks, yet some do not.
Many of the larger resorts on Providenciales offer eco kid’s camps and day care services. The educational camps explore sea turtle tagging, paddling adventures in the marine wetlands, scuba diving training, and guided snorkel tours.
Beaches Turks and Caicos goes beyond with an expansive water park, game arcades, Sesame Street performers, kid-friendly restaurants, and live entertainment shows.
There are two adult-only all-inclusive resorts in the Turks and Caicos.
Club Med Turkoise has been an adult-only resort since its opening in 1984.
Beach House, located on the Bight Beach and part of the Turks and Caicos Collection, is a boutique and upscale hotel, and the only other adult-only hotel in the country.
Several of the larger resorts have restaurants and bars restricted to adults, yet the rest of the resorts are open to children and families.
If you’d like to experience the amenities of an all-inclusive, consider purchasing a day pass. Beaches Turks and Caicos and Club Med both offer such passes.
Sailrock Resort offers one of the most unique day passes, with a package that include air transit from Providenciales, and is a great way to combine a day trip to South Caicos with a resort day pass.
Club Med offer a great selection of water sports, and the day pass can be a great value if you’d like to try Hobie Cat sailing, windsurfing, or paddle boarding.
Due to limited availability, the Beaches rate may be as high as $640 per adult, and $270 for kids. Club Med’s day pass ranges from $60-80 per person depending on the season.
