News from Pine Cay

Time’s they are a changin’ in the Turks and Caicos Islands, where the private-island resort formerly known as The Meridian Club, Pine Cay is changing its name to The Meridian Club, Turks and Caicos.

The resort says that the subtle but significant change is happening because most potential guests are searching “Turks and Caicos” online, and the new name change, it hopes, will help increase its visibility on the web.

Other changes ushered in this season include a new general manager, Debbie Keller, and the promotion of pastry chef Sarah Spudowski to the position of executive chef. Spudowski will be revamping the menu of the resort’s restaurant, now renamed The Meridian Club Bistro and open to the public by reservation.

Air-conditioning has also recently been added to some of the rooms on the 800-acre island that’s 15 minutes by boat from Providenciales. And there’s now free WI-FI throughout the property. Staying true to its disconnected away-from-it-all vibe, there are still no clocks, radios or TVs in the rooms, and “shoes are optional.”
