turks and caicos marine room

A New Culinary Hotspot in Turks and Caicos 

By: Dana Niland - May 8, 2023

A new culinary destination has opened its doors in Turks and Caicos: Marine Room, a Mediterranean-inspired concept that is the first phase of the new Bight Hotel. 

Marine Room is the brainchild of developer EA Group, led by Executive Chef Dennis Omega, with a fusion of “Caribbean coastal flavors and Mediterranean techniques.” 

The focus is on fresh seafood and local sourcing, with plates like conch carpaccio with starfruit; burette with peach passionfruit coulis and pesto; and pan-seared sea bass, among others. 

The cocktail menu includes a selection of locally-infused vodka martinis using spirits from EA Group’s distillery. 

“Turks and Caicos has been our home for over 20 years, and this project is our way of sharing with the world what makes our islands so special. Travelers will experience far more than a hotel or a restaurant when visiting, they will experience the true Turks and Caicos lifestyle – from its local flavors and talent to how we like to relax and the ways we embrace the natural elements of the island,” said Ryan Jones, developer at EA. “The Marine Room is the perfect ‘first taste’ of all that is to come, combining a culinary journey with music, incredible views, and more to create a memorable evening.”

It’s part of the highly-anticipated Bight project, which will eventually include 66 villas, 90 guest rooms and several culinary concepts. The hotel is slated to open over the next two years, with the beach villas opening in July 2023. 

The eatery is open Tuesday through Saturday.
