The luxury boutique resort of Point Grace received little structural damage from Hurricane Ike. And thanks to a severe pre-hurricane pruning, the landscape also escaped relatively unscathed, Breaking Travel News reports.
The resort is now in its traditional closure period for annual renovation works, so the hurricane clean-up is also being conducted at the same time. It will be ready to welcome its guests from 18 October 2008.
The luxury boutique resort on the paradise island of Providenciales, Turks & Caicos was last year recognized as the Caribbean’s Leading Boutique Hotel by World Travel Awards. Point Grace has also been nominated again for this year’s event which takes place on 12 December.
Located on a serene stretch of white sandy beach, Point Grace offers a selection of ocean-front suites that directly overlook the beach or cottage suites with relaxing pool and garden views. All suites are exquisitely furnished and decorated. With magnificent views of the ocean and the peaceful sounds of the gentle Caribbean waves in the background - Point Grace offers the most elegant surroundings with an unparalleled level of service.
The resort is also home to the Thalasso Spa, a full-service European-style Thalassotherapy spa, which blends the famous Thalgo Spas of France with a relaxing Caribbean ocean front environment. Thalassotherapy uses the properties of sea water as well as applications of sea mud and select seaweed. During treatments, specialists trained in these European techniques apply selected products of the highest quality.
The Turks and Caicos Islands are virtually undiscovered. Providenciales is one of the 49 islands that comprise the British Crown Colony of Turks and Caicos. This caring islands community of 25,000 friendly locals and internationals is located halfway between Florida and Puerto Rico and only a ninety-minute non-stop jet flight from Miami.
