All-inclusive Resort on Grace Bay and Providenciales
All inclusive resorts on Grace Bay Beach.
Providenciales is the main tourism island in the Turks and Caicos, and there are six all-inclusive resorts to choose from.
Beaches Turks and Caicos is by far the largest and best known, and is an enclave of several ‘villages’, including the Caribbean Village, Key West Village, Italian Village, and French Village.

Is an All-Inclusive the Best Choice?
The water park at Beaches Turks and Caicos.
Due to the high regional crime rates in the Caribbean, all-inclusive resorts are very popular and make sense in many regional countries such as Jamaica, Mexico, and the Bahamas. Fortunately, the Turks and Caicos is one of the safest destinations in the Caribbean, and consequently the considerations of an all-inclusive stay are a little different.
Staying at an all-inclusive resort is not 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, yet dining and activity choices can really close the price gap. Restaurants and food in general are quite expensive in the islands, and three prepared meals and drinks per day plus drinks can really 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. For parents looking for some time to relax, the water park and tremendous range of activities for kids at Beaches can make the resort a great choice for families.
Couples and adults may prefer the adults-only Club Med, which tends to have a bit more nightlife activity than most other accommodations in the country.
Both Beaches and Club Med are located directly on Grace Bay, and offer rooms and suites with stunning ocean views.

Turks and Caicos Collection

Beach House, the
Blue Haven Resort. An interesting facet of the Turks and Caicos Collection is guests staying at one of these three resorts has full access to the counterpart resorts, including the onsite restaurants. There’s convenient and complimentary transport provided between the resorts as well.
These three resorts each bring a different yet breath-taking beach setting. The Beach House is hidden on a calm section of the

Leeward, which is a short kayak or paddle board journey from the nature sanctuary of
Mangrove Cay and the
Princess Alexandra Nature Reserve.

creatures and plants, including our
rock iguana, the iconic Turks head cacti, our tiny and harmless miniature boas, and several smaller lizards and reptiles that are only found on a few islands on earth.
The beach fronting the Meridian Club on Pine Cay.
Meridian Club, a small boutique retreat on the private island of
Pine Cay, offers an all-inclusive package that includes meals and airport transfers. Drinks are not included, yet a snorkel tour and access to many amenities is.
Pine Cay is a unique and beautiful island, and boasts of one of the finest beaches in the Turks and Caicos, and the island is surrounded by natural beauty. On its eastern side is the scenic and uninhabited
Fort George Cay, which is famous for its beaches and expansive sand bars, and to the west of Pine Cay is the incredible and likewise uninhabited
Water Cay, which offers miles of perfect white sand beach.
The Turks and Caicos is of course one of the leading Caribbean beach destinations, and our spectacular coasts are crowned by Grace Bay, one of the top beaches in the world. All-inclusive vacations can be great if you’re looking to simply enjoy the beach, as most of our all-inclusive hotels are located on a prime stretch of coast.
Offsite activities and island day trips are also usually not included with all-inclusive packages. Other than non-powered water sports 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 typically 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.
Rates and Accommodation Tax
A 7.5% or 12% (depending on the resort) government accommodation tax is applicable on all stays. This may or may not be included in posted rates.
A 10% service charge is also applicable.
All other taxes or service fees, including “city tax”, are not government imposed.
Booking direct with the accommodation will usually give you the best price. Resorts will almost always price match rates found through agents or major online booking websites. It’s advisable to research rates for your accommodation before booking, so you’ll know what to ask for.
Some all-inclusive resorts in Turks and Caicos include complimentary airport transport, and others do not. In the case of the remote resorts and those on our outer islands, transport fees may be significant. Inquire when you book.
