Construction Set To Begin On Andaz Turks And Caicos

Opening in late 2025, this resort will be yet another terrific reason to visit this beautiful destination.

To say that Andaz Turks and Caicos is a highly anticipated resort is a bit of an understatement. Since I first had the opportunity to view the plans and renderings, as well as the lot where it will soon exist, it was clear that this resort concept was going to put the rest of the destination's offerings on notice. And that's not exactly an easy thing to do when the other hotels and resorts on Providenciales alone are collectively among the best in the Caribbean.

Set on the western end of Grace Bay Beach—one of the most beautiful stretches of sand you'll ever see—it's safe to say the views alone will be worth the effort to get here. But the 59-key resort, which will also boast 74 residential units, promises to be as breathtaking inside as everything is outside, and eventual guests can now mark the calendar for a late 2025 opening.

Now that this project is "shovel-ready," this will be the first Hyatt Hotels property in the destination, and it's safe to assume that it will instantly be one of the most popular in the entire portfolio. Judging by the success of financing and sales, travelers will be eager to spend as much time testing the resort's four dining options and indoor fitness and wellness facility as they will swimming around the nearby Smith's Reef.

At this stage, though, it's all about building energy, positivity, and reasonable expectations. That shouldn't be difficult.

"Having lived and worked on the island for 26 years, I can say this is one of the most exciting developments in decades," said John Zammit, a real estate developer and longtime resident who serves on the property's board of directors. "It is a complete game changer, offering a new take on contemporary luxury lifestyle accommodations and residences, while offering the upscale amenities and guest services that the Andaz brand is so well known for."

Resorts in Turks and Caicos are notorious putting luxury above all else and redefining comfort, so the addition of the Andaz brand is about as fitting as it gets.
