Turks and Caicos’ Sands, Shore Club, Palms Reopening This Month

Hurricane Irma passed through the Turks and Caicos last week, but the island of Providenciales was spared some of Irma’s wrath.

Indeed, some of the island’s top resorts are already planning to reopen this month.

Hartling Group Resorts, which has three of the island’s leading resorts, has announced a timetable for the reopening of its properties.

The Shore Club, The Sands and The Palms sustained “no major structural damages” during the storm, only extensive landscaping and some water damage.

While they will be closed to allow time for necessary repairs, they are all reopening within a few weeks.

The Sands at Grace Bay and the Palms will open Sept. 23, and The Shore Club will reopen on Sept. 30.

The company said it would be contacting guests and travel professionals who were booked to arrive during the next few weeks to reschedule their stays.

Irma did not leave the island unscathed however, and Hartling Group said it would be working to help staff and local community members who lost their homes and belongings due to flooding and wind damage.

“We are committed to assisting those persons as we all work together to restore this great community,” the company said.
