Turks and Caicos is a small nation with beautiful white sand beaches and perfectly clear aqua colored seas. It is made up of 40 islands and cays, eight of which are inhabited. Providenciales is the most populated of the islands and is a top beach destination. Grace Bay Beach, located on the island, is a long beach by Caribbean standards (12 miles long), so travelers usually have an easy time finding a patch of sand to relax in. Grand Turk is the capital island as well as the largest of the Turks Islands. The island has healthy coral, diverse marine life and visibility that can exceed 100 feet and many beautiful dive locations. Direct flights are offered from 11 North American cities, including Washington DC, New York, Miami, and Charlotte.
Ambergris Cay is a 20-minute flight from Providenciales, the tourist hub of the Turks and Caicos Islands. A mere 10 villas punctuate the talcum sands of this remote all-inclusive private-island resort. Well-to-do guests can expect to enjoy attentive service from private butlers, some of the Caribbean’s best beaches, and plenty of privacy. Little Ambergris Cay is one of the most popular islands in the Caribbean. The resort has a butler assigned to each suite.
The beachfront spa has a heated pool and a wraparound terrace with a dining table. The island also has a golf cart for guests who want to relax on the beach. Breakfast options may include eggs Benedict or lobster frittata, along with fresh fruit, cereal, French toast, pancakes, and fresh tropical-flavored smoothies. Many guests choose to take lunch with them on day trips to surrounding cays or it can be served, like all other meals, in the comfort of your suite for no additional charge.
The resort is built on the rocky coves of Providenciales, surrounded by dry tropical forest and overlooking Point Marine National Park. Snorkelers can step onto the beach, while scuba divers can visit myriad renowned dive sites. Set within 100 acres of wild vegetation, all paths meander from the hidden Indonesian-inspired structures and villas to the resort’s elegant main pavilions. The 18 villas are made up of multiple pavilions and come with their own chef and host.
The free snorkeling trips are superlative, and the guided nature trail is fun. Guests rave about the tennis coach and the gym. The spa is lovely, set across four pavilions, looking onto a pool. The buffet’s other offerings include fresh fruit, cold meats, cheeses, pastries, muesli, and yoghurts. Drinks are accompanied by nibbles such as deep-fried plantain chips. The portions are generous, and the menu is global, ranging from delicious tom yam soup and green curry chicken to Turks and Caicos lobster.
