Turks and Caicos’ The Sands at Grace Bay Resort Reopens

One of the most beloved resorts in the Turks and Caicos Islands has reopened its doors in the wake of Hurricanes Maria and Irma.

The Sands at Grace Bay resort on Grace Bay Beach officially reopened last week.

The resort’s Hemingway’s Bar and Restaurant has also reopened, according to a statement from the property.

Grace Bay Beach was spared the brunt of the hurricanes, with none of The Sands’ suites impacted.

“We are thrilled to share the news with our past and prospective guests, and our travel partners that we are re-opening our doors this coming Saturday,” said Mona Beeson, General Manager of The Sands at Grace Bay.  “We understand that there has been some confusion in the marketplace as to the level of damages the area has sustained.  Rest assured that we would not be opening if we were not 100% certain that we will be providing our guests with our full range of amenities and the very best in customer service that we are known for.

Even better? The storm may have actually improved an already-world famous beach, according to Beeson.

“Guests will also be pleased to know that Grace Bay Beach, acclaimed as of the world’s best and most award-clad beaches, remains just as spectacular as ever,” she said.  “In fact, waves from the storms broke at the reef and actually brushed more sand upon the island’s shores in this area giving us an even more expansive beach. We look forward to welcoming everyone back to Turks and Caicos’ Grace Bay Beach.”
