Ask anyone who has ever stayed at Beaches Turks and Caicos to name the best thing about it, and the answers will certainly differ. After all, few resorts do as much in terms of providing multiple atmospheres for various types of travelers, and few if any do it as well. And while some could make a good case that the incredibly beautiful Grace Bay Beach instantly turns any property to one of the best in the Caribbean, there’s very little doubt that this beloved all-inclusive is in a class of its own.
But even as Turks and Caicos reopened last July, like many resorts throughout the Caribbean, Beaches remained closed and targeted a mid-October return following delays over health and safety concerns, as well as other issues. With every new update, recurring guests undoubtedly waited with bated breath—we certainly received a fair share of email inquiries—and so it must have come as a great relief on December 21 when this property finally opened its doors to travelers.
One of the things that Beaches Turks and Caicos does best is set the mood for romance and that starts with the free honeymoon package that takes care of the little details. For starters, couples are welcomed with a bottle of sparkling wine for the many toasts to come, and after a day of snorkeling, being pampered at the spa and sipping cocktails by the pool, they’ll return to petals on the bed, before starting all over again the next morning with fresh flowers and breakfast in bed.
For anyone eyeing this resort as the venue for an unforgettable destination wedding, the Beaches Platinum Protocol of Cleanliness should reinforce the decision. In order to make both the Free Tropical Wedding and Beaches Customizable Wedding safer for couples and guests, the capacity has been reduced for both open-air and indoor venues for the sake of maximizing the physical distancing. Additionally, seating has been reduced for the reception and plated dinners will replace buffets. And, for anyone who can’t make the trip, a live stream service is available.
Before booking, please be aware of the entire Beaches Turks and Caicos Platinum Protocol and what it means for all guests. Additionally, the government of Turks and Caicos is posting regular updates regarding curfews, the availability of onsite testing and requirements for entry. Masks are required in all public places, so be sure to pack plenty.
