“Every last detail of this expansion project was designed to meet the very particular needs of today’s travelling family. When scheduling time together has become more difficult - and therefore more precious - than ever before, we want to ensure that every moment spent at our resort is an unforgettable one.”

All guests at Beaches Turks and Caicos will be entitled to enjoy its new fresh water pool complete with whirlpool and from March it will open one of the largest waterpark’s in the region known as the “Pirate’s Island Waterpark” The park will feature seven new slides, a lazy river and the Caribbean’s only surf simulator, plus an all-new aqua-themed nightclub, Liquid.

This includes furniture designed just for the tiniest guests as well as five additional gourmet restaurants (for a total of 16 dining options at the resort); a 7,000 sq. ft. upscale retail area; and an entirely new line-up of teen- and “tween”-inspired programming keeping the whole family happy.
