Turks and Caicos Resorts

Turks and Caicos resorts are quickly becoming some of the most popular resorts in the Caribbean. This has a lot to do with their overall quality, the quality of the Turks and Caicos beaches, and the wonderfully laid-back nature of this island territory. All of the resorts in the TCI are beach resorts, and most of are also quite luxurious. In fact, Turks and Caicos luxury resorts have been springing up around the archipelago in recent years, and more are being planned or are already in the works. Among them is the dazzling Ritz-Carlton Molasses Reef, which is situated on the beautiful and nearly uninhabited island of West Caicos.

Most of the Turks and Caicos beach resorts can be found along a gorgeous twelve-mile beach that is known as Grace Bay Beach. Few beaches in the world rival this divine strip of sand, and while there are plenty of Grace Bay beach hotels and resorts to choose from, it is not overdeveloped or crowded. None of the Turks and Caicos beaches are overdeveloped, in fact, and this is just part of the reason why tourism is on the rise. As for the Turks and Caicos resorts that can be found on Grace Bay Beach, they include luxury gems like the Seven Stars Resort, the Tuscany on Grace Bay, and the Grace Bay Club. These aren't the only luxury hangouts on Grace Bay Beach, however, and should you prefer, cheaper resorts such as the Royal West Indies Resort provide plenty of comfort at a more reasonable price.

If you planning on visiting the island of Providenciales and you don't have your heart set on a Grace Bay Resort, there are options elsewhere. Along the coast of the Northwest Point area, for example, you will find the spectacular Amanyara Resort. This luxury resort offers a very isolated and tranquil appeal, and you won't want for amazing snorkeling and scuba diving opportunities. Just offshore, coral reef walls that are part of the Northwest Point Marine National Park provide snorkelers and dives alike with some great underwater terrain to explore. La Vista Azul Resort, which overlooks the island of Providenciales's north coast is just one more resort that you might add to your list, especially if you are more interested in spending less than you otherwise would at one of the island's more upscale resort establishments.

The Providenciales resorts impress in terms of location, amenities, service, and all around appeal. That being said, seeing what the other islands have to offer in the resort department is recommended. The private island of Parrot Cay, for example, boasts a resort that even the most discerning of travelers will fall in love with. This resort, which is aptly named the Parrot Cay Resort, is popular among celebrities, and its spa is among the best spas in the entire Caribbean.

If you want to do a lot of scuba diving in the Turks and Caicos and you don't want to overspend on your accommodations, then the Bohio Dive Resort on the island of Grand Turk can make a fine place to stay. Grand Turk is even more laid-back than Provinciales, and it too offers beaches that are worthy of a world-class ranking. As for the Bohio Dive Resort, it offers great diving packages for diving enthusiasts, though you don't have to go scuba diving to enjoy your stay. There are packages for non-divers alike, and since the resort is situated on beautiful Pillory Beach, you can enjoy plenty of fun in the sun.

As is true of Grand Turk, the island of Salt Cay is found in the Turks Islands region. This amazingly tranquil island doesn't offer a lot of lodging options, but the options that are available are quite enticing. Among them is the Windmills Plantation. This high-end establishment on the beach isn't your average resort. There are only eight guest units, and guests can access a self-serve bar that is open around the clock. Add in the great snorkeling opportunities and the fact that the long beach that lies just outside your door is about as deserted as can be, and it only gets better.
