There’s just something about the island life that calls to people. And that gravitational pull draws millions of visitors to the Caribbean and its surrounding regions year after year. But when you book a trip for an island getaway, chances are you don’t want to stay just anywhere. To help you narrow down your choices, Travel + Leisure released rankings of the top 25 resort hotels in the Caribbean, Bermuda and the Bahamas for 2019, and we are thrilled (but not surprised) to see three Turks & Caicos properties on the list. Not to mention, the No. 1 hotel? Also in the Turks & Caicos. Read on to see which Providenciales hotels made the cut.
Exuding Caribbean elegance, The Palms offers a pampering experience that includes a tranquil spa, lush gardens and delicious dining options. Chill by the infinity pool, sip champagne by the beach at the Pink Bar, or take advantage of the resort’s complimentary nonmotorized water sports, which include kayaks, paddleboards and Hobie Cats.
COMO Parrot Cay
A dreamy seaside hotel on its own private island — this is where you’ll find the true meaning of tranquility. COMO Parrot Cay is a short ferry ride away from Providenciales, but it feels like you’re in the middle of the ocean on your own private sanctuary here. Aside from the resort and private villas themselves, the island is largely untouched so you can cycle down pathways surrounded by abundant green foliage after enjoying a complimentary breakfast. Facilities include yoga and pilates pavilions, a fully equipped fitness center, nine treatment rooms at the COMO Shambhala spa, Japanese baths, tennis courts and more.
The Shore Club
This stylish resort on the shores of Long Bay Beach has been winning awards left and right since its opening in late 2016, and it took the No. 1 spot on Travel + Leisure’s list. The Shore Club offers four pools, three restaurants, a peaceful seaside spa, impeccably designed rooms and more. Enjoy Japanese-meets-Peruvian fare at the high-end SUI-REN restaurant, or claim a cabana by the photogenic Colonnade pool and order some traditional conch fritters paired with your favorite cocktail. Everything about this hotel, from the design to the cuisine to the beach, makes it a dream come true for anyone who stays here.
