Where to Stay in Turks and Caicos

A stunning white sandy beach, warm turquoise waters and plenty of sunshine is just what you need for your next vacation. So you’ve picked your destination. You and your family are going to Turks and Caicos – it only took one glimpse of those crystalline waters of electric blues and you were sold. However, choosing where exactly to stay at is not so easy. There are so many options and you want to be sure you make the right choice. So which resort is right for you that will give you the best value for money and still provide all the amenities you’re looking for on vacation?

 

First, you have to ask yourself what’s on the must-have list? If it’s beach front, water sports, delicious food, friendly service - you’ll find all in abundance in Turks and Caicos, so what sets the resorts apart? What do you really need that will make the difference?

 

At Alexandra Resort, is the effortless combination of everything on most visitors’ wish lists, and a central location on world famous Grace Bay Beach that distinguishes this resort.

 

The resort’s accommodations include affordable studios and spacious suites that provide all the amenities for complete self-catering so you can either whip up a quick and easy snack for the kids, or cook a gourmet meal in a fully equipped kitchen. The complimentary resort shuttle runs throughout the day to our sister property, Blue Haven Resort, where you’ll find the MARKET for your groceries.

 

However, if the point of your vacation was to get out of the kitchen, then our oceanfront restaurant, Asu on the Beach, serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Alexandra Resort also offers an optional full board meal plan which includes all food and drinks during meal times, so you really don’t need to think about bringing out your wallet. The location of Asu on the Beach is set on a large shaded wooden deck with some of the most spectacular views in the whole of Grace Bay, and the most perfect place to take in the gorgeous sunsets.  Other food and beverage services include a casual lounge on the deck where stone oven pizzas are served, a beach bar, and F&B service at the beach and poolside.

 

If Grace Bay beach is your reason for choosing Turks and Caicos, then resort location is surely very important to you. With hotels spread along the beach front, again, you have so many options. However, Alexandra Resort is placed right in the middle, boasting one of the best spots in Grace Bay. You can take a romantic stroll either way along the beach and walk for miles on the soft white sand, paddling in the ocean as the waves gently lap upon the shore.

 

When relaxing on your sun lounger, you want to be sure there’s plenty of things to do for your family to stay active. The resort offers a water trampoline, kayaks, stand-up paddleboards, Hobie cats, beach volleyball, badminton, and snorkeling equipment all available on a complimentary basis.

 

Looking for activities off the beach? Admittedly, it may be the sun, sea and sand you came for, but you can’t spend every minute on the beach.

 

Alexandra Resort has several solutions. Close to the pool, there’s a ping pong table, as well as an outdoor BBQ area so you can grill your own food. There are weekly games set up for resort guests to join in pool volleyball, beach soccer, a piggy back race, balloon and water balloon pop, water polo and swim relays at the pool. Alexandra Resort hosts a weekly manager’s cocktail party, which is followed by karaoke night.  Other resort amenities include a gym, tennis courts, complimentary use of pedal bikes, and Elevate Spa. A complimentary shuttle service is also available for guests to use Sandpiper Kids Club (nominal fee) at Blue Haven Resort.

 

Our Guest Services agents can assist in booking many boat trips, for snorkeling and diving, sunset cruises, or going to see the conch farm, and other land based tours. Caicos Dream Tours, one of the best snorkel tour operators, depart directly from the beach in front of Alexandra Resort, so you couldn’t be any closer to stepping on the boat and exploring the reef, and indulging in a delicious conch salad for lunch, freshly caught by yourself!

 

Alexandra Resort is one of three resorts in the Turks and Caicos Collection. Sister properties include Beach House and Blue Haven Resort, both of which are just a short ride by a complimentary resort shuttle. Each property is very unique, they have their own character and appeal, so this adds a whole new dimension to your resort experience. Now you can truly enjoy more of what the island has to offer, and know you’ll receive excellent service at each location.
