The 10 Best Turks and Caicos Resorts to Visit in 2024

The Dragon Cay resort on Middle Caicos.

It’s been one of the most sought-after destinations in the wider Caribbean since the pandemic: the Turks and Caicos Islands, which has carved out a rather rarefied niche among celebrities, jet-setters and beach lovers. And while Grace Bay Beach remains the biggest magnet for travelers, Turks and Caicos has been quietly developing its tourism beyond Providenciales’ most famous stretch of sand. 

That includes both new corners of Providenciales and expanding demand for farther-off destinations like North Caicos, Middle Caicos and South Caicos, all of which boast their own popular accommodation options. 

Our 2024 list of the best places to stay in Turks and Caicos exemplifies that trend, highlighting favorites not just in Grace Bay, but destinations like Provo’s North Shore and Long Bay along with the Sister Islands, with a range of price and style options from the ultra-luxe to the all-inclusive to the decidedly budget-friendly.

The Shore Club on Long Bay This is Turks and Caicos’ pre-eminent hotel, a luxury resort that feels like your own private club. The 106-room hotel (also home to some of the most beautiful luxury villas in the Caribbean) is just-plain stunning, with impressive service, thoughtfully-designed rooms and a privileged perch on the stunning sands of Long Bay. 

The Palms Turks and Caicos The most luxurious place to stay on Grace Bay Beach is a 72-suite luxe residential resort, meaning you get all of the amenities of a resort with the comfort and space of your own luxury villa. The resort is home to the most romantic eatery in Turks and Caicos, Parallel 23, and one of the most beautiful spas we’ve ever seen in the Caribbean.

The Sands at Grace Bay in Turks and Caicos.

The Sands at Grace Bay When it comets beach resorts, this is a true Caribbean classic. The 114-suite resort is set on a perfect stretch of Grace Bay sand, with a lovely serpentine pool, marvelously lush grounds and endlessly friendly service. It’s also home to the beloved Hemingway’s restaurant right on the edge of the sand. Amenities also include an on-site spa, tennis and, in a new addition, pickleball courts.

The Rock House resort in Providenciales.

Rock House This doesn’t look like any other resort in Turks and Caicos: Rock House is a cliffside stunner with 46 ultra-modern units, a terrific beach club, two great bars and a signature Italian eatery called Vita. But what we love most about this place is the elevation: heights reaching nearly 100 feet mean you can see Provo and the ocean in a whole new way.

The beach club pool at COMO Parrot Cay.

COMO Parrot Cay Como’s only Caribbean outpost is this private-island retreat with about five dozen rooms and a collection of sleek luxury beach houses and villas. But this is a COMO hotel, so the biggest story is the wellness offering, with everything from a Jacuzzi garden to a yoga pavilion and a full slate of active programming every day of the week.

Ports of Call Easily the best-value resort in Turks and Caicos, Ports of Call is set right in the heart of the action in Grace Bay Village, just a short stroll from the beach and within easy access to all of the areas’s best restaurants, shops and markets. There are just under 100 rooms here, with a host of different room categories, and amenities including four different eateries, free daily breakfast and dedicated staffing and space on Grace Bay Beach. 

Point Grace The best boutique resort on Grace Bay, this property has just 28 suites in a prime beachfront setting. The colorful cottage-style rooms are big and breezy — the smallest one-bedroom units have almost 1,100 square feet of living space, ranging up to a four-bedroom penthouse  with a total of 7,2000 interior square feet. There are also two on-site eateries: Grace’s Cottage, a French dinner-only eatery; and the Hutchings Restaurant, a daytime spot near the pool.
