Beaches Turks & Caicos prepares for World Travel Awards

Beaches Turks & Caicos prepares for World Travel Awards

Located in exotic Grace Bay in Providenciales, Beaches Turks & Caicos is a multi-faceted fantasy world, where pastel pink bungalows are nestled in tropical gardens resplendent with graceful palms.

Here, there are almost enough pools for each day of the week, and the last day is reserved for the largest pool of all, the clear turquoise sea bordered by a 12-mile stretch of beach.

Made up of four distinct areas, Beaches Turks & Caicos offers the seaside garden paradise of the Caribbean Village, the sophisticated style of the French Village, the monumental surroundings of the Italian Village, along with the tropical style of the Seaside Village.

In total 614 rooms and suites are on offer at the magnificent property, all of which include air conditioning, king or double beds, satellite TV, and a refrigerator.

More popular are the elegant suites, designed for those who picture themselves lounging on a private balcony overlooking the sea, retreating to a luxurious room with the finest appointments and amenities, or walking steps from the beach to a private oasis in paradise.

Beaches Resorts’ suites feature elegant sitting areas with fully-stocked in-room bars, mahogany four-poster king size beds, lavish marble baths with oversized whirlpool tubs and private terraces with breath-taking views of the Caribbean Sea.

Additionally, in select suites, guests can delight in the services of their own personal butler with Beaches Resorts’ exclusive Butler Service, courtesy of the resort company’s partnership with the Guild of Professional English Butlers.

Services include assisting with private in-suite check-in, unpacking and packing of clothing, drawing a scented bubble bath, orchestrating in-suite gourmet dining on a private terrace and more.

The most sought after of the suites, the 162 Italian Village Family Suites, considered the cornerstone of the recent multi-million dollar expansion of the property, elevate the resort’s accommodations to a new and unprecedented level. 

For parents, a separate master bedroom, complete with a sitting area and plasma TV, is lavishly decorated with a mahogany four-poster bed, luxurious linens in a coral theme and an elegant bathroom complete with Jacuzzi tub and double Carrera marble vanities. 

A separate kid’s room offers young visitors their own personal, unique space featuring cosy bunk beds and a plasma TV. 

Where else but at Beaches Resorts can guests soak up the sun, surf, and sand of the Caribbean one minute and find themselves sitting in an Italian trattoria the next?

With a restaurant for every possible craving, guests at Beaches Turks & Caicos can escape to a different Epicurean delight every night.

On offer are Jamaican, Thai, French, Mediterranean and Italian menus, in a range of settings. Some restaurants offer a formal atmosphere - showcasing white-glove service and fine wine - for sophisticated dining, while others take on a more causal feel.

Beaches has turned to world-class chef and owner of City Tavern in Philadelphia, PA, Walter Staib, as the resorts culinary ambassador.

In this role, Staib assist the resorts executive chefs and food and beverage teams with menu development, presentation of food, table setting and much more. 

As founder of the Caribbean Culinary Federation, Staib asserts that the top culinary priorities at Beaches Resorts include innovation, health and variety.

As with sister resorts Sandals, Beaches Turks & Caicos offers the distinctive warmth and passion of the Caribbean islands at its Red Lane Spa.

The location combines European traditions with a distinctive Caribbean flair, with treatments utilising ingredients indigenous to the region, including exotic sweet oranges, local honey and almonds, natural island cane sugar and other tropical delicacies.

Adorned with imported marbles, classic mahogany millwork and original art, the Red Lane Spa transports guests into another world - a rich, restful retreat focused on relaxation and serenity.

The calming scent of lemongrass permeates throughout each spa, offering a feast for all senses.

Facilities include hot and cold plunge pools, Eucalyptus steam baths and saunas, locker rooms with showers and fully stocked vanity areas, full-service beauty salons and many offer secluded garden sanctuaries.

Treatment venues can be tailored to personal preference from the beach and garden gazebos to in-room indulgences.

Located in one of the top ten best scuba destinations in the world, diving is the key attraction here.

This year, Beaches will be offering the Live It Up ‘N’ Dive Program, which offers guests exclusive discounts on dive courses, free equipment demonstrations, deep sea treasure hunts and more. 

The programme allows experienced scuba divers and amateurs alike to holiday in paradise with their friends and family while enjoying unlimited diving.

In addition to exclusive discounts and demonstrations, the Live It Up ‘N’ Dive programming features an array of events and activities.
