New Hotels Planned for Turks and Caicos


The Turks and Caicos Tourist Board (TCTB) announced the debut of new resorts as the territory continues its post-pandemic reopening to visitors. TCTB officials say the destination’s tourism business has been boosted by strong land-based tourist arrivals this summer and is preparing for more growth as it welcomes cruise ship visitors post-outbreak.

South Bank Turks & Caicos is scheduled to open in the spring of 2022 as a managed residential resort and marina located along Long Bay Beach, with one- to six-bedroom residences featuring distinct designs featuring “livability and an affinity for waterfront living,” said officials.


The Rock House property will open with 42 private cottages in the spring 2022 on Providenciales’ north shore. Rock House will feature “modern” finishes and panoramic views, with amenities including a 100-foot infinity pool, a European-style beach blub, customized jogging trails, a signature restaurant, bar, a cave lounge and a fitness center.

Also scheduled to begin construction in 2022 is the Bight Hotel, which will feature a 45-foot-high tower offering “unparalleled” views of Grace Bay Beach. Also planned are an infinity pool, spa, yoga studio, distillery and rum bar, plus a garden-to-table restaurant featuring produce from the property’s farm. The Strand Turks & Caicos will open in 2023 as a private residential resort community on Providenciales’ southern shore.

Additionally, the territory’s newest luxury resort, The Ritz-Carlton, Turks & Caicos, opened in June with 147 ocean-view guest rooms including five three-story penthouse suites, multiple dining options, a dedicated club concierge and beach service, a signature Ritz-Carlton spa, a casino with traditional table games and a private catamaran for exclusive guest use.

“These highly-anticipated openings [will] appeal to a wide variety of guests, offering not only exceptional accommodations, but innovative culinary venues, spas, activities, and new advancements in ecotourism,” said Pamela Ewing, the Turks and Caicos’ director of tourism.

“As tourism is expected to continue growing, these new and upcoming openings present a variety of noteworthy hotels, restaurants, and experiences for both visitors and locals to relax, explore, and enjoy,” Ewing added.

Ewing described the past summer as “one of the busiest on record” for the Turks and Caicos. The destination reported an 18 visitor arrivals increase compared with pre-pandemic 2019 to 54,188 visitors in June. The territory’s July 2021 arrivals totaled 56,022 visitors, a 19 percent increase compared with July 2019. The Turks and Caicos hosted 41,734 visitors in August, a 15 percent increase compared with August 2019.
