Set on the northeastern tip of Providenciales away from famed Grace Bay, Blue Haven Resort’s sugar-sand beach fronts calm azure waters and is adjacent to the property’s eponymous marina. One- two- and three-bedroom suites are contemporary and airy and feature kitchens with cherry wood cabinetry, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. Head outside to enjoy the infinity edge pool (complete with a swim-up bar) or lounge with a good read in one the hammocks strung between two palm trees. Active types will enjoy the volleyball, beach tennis and horseshoes courts, while those looking for a lively happy hour scene (with killer drink specials) should make a beeline to SALT Bar & Grill. Also located onsite is a spa and Fire & Ice Restaurant, which serves contemporary Caribbean fare.
In the Area
Swing your clubs at the Provo Golf Club, the challenging and beautifully landscaped course is the only one in Turks and Caicos (look out for flamingos in the lakes). Hungry? Hit Da Conch Shack, which, while a bit on the touristy side, is a must for mollusk-lovers with such offerings as conch salad, conch fritters, conch chowder and more. Or, ditch your pool lounger and trot along Long Bay beach on horseback; it’s one of the best ways to take in the backdrop of white sand and turquoise water. Riders of all skill levels can participate; long pants are strongly suggested.
How to Get There
It is one of the most beautiful resorts I have ever stayed in. The serene and tranquil ambiance of the resort is unique. The beach and pool area is wonderful. The restaurant is top notch. The luxurious rooms are amazing with breathtaking views of the ocean. The staff and management are superb. Pictures and words cannot describe how magical this place is.
Let me start by saying I did countless research on the many properties in TC and after weeks of comparing, we (my wife and I) settled on Blue Haven. Now from the reviews that I read, it all depends on your preferences and what you are looking for. I can say that this hotel is off the beaten path, very secluded and located on a private beach. Some may see that as "boring" however its exactly what I wanted as I do not favor crowds. Another thing people complain about was the "lack of activities" again it all depends on what you are looking for as this is not a nightclub hotel with constant parties its geared towards relaxation, peacefulness and tranquility.
Check in was smooth, and you are immediately greeted with a drink. Now, let me address the high/low seasons. According to staff and locals, the busy season is from November until about March. We traveled here in June and it was not a lot of people at all but that allowed the staff to provide more individualized attention as they were not overwhelmed. I really appreciated the ease of moving around the property, getting pool chairs and beach chairs without being annoyed by crowds.
As far as the food, this is an ALL-INCLUSIVE so virtually everything is included. I say virtually because if you want a whole bottle of wine, i believe you have to pay for it but if you get it by the glass its included as well as all other top shelf alcohol. All food is off the menu, no buffet from breakfast to lunch to dinner. Breakfast is at the Fire & Ice restaurant from 7am-11am or something like that...many options to include made to order omelettes. Lunch is at poolside bar only (restaurant is closed) from 11:30-5:30 and they have a few options but not many; I stuck to the fish tacos. Dinner is back at Fire & Ice from 6pm-11pm and they have many options. Food was actually pretty good.
The entire staff is friendly and accommodating but special shout outs to Latoya, Glenny, and Samuel from Fire & Ice and of course Chef Elvis.......Be careful, Elvis dancing to the great island tunes is catchy and will have you moving to the beat in no time.
This was my personal experience and again, it all depends on what you are looking for. We like private, quiet and relaxing so this was the place for me/us. Read other reviews and compare but you cannot go wrong if you choose to stay here as I highly recommend it.
Oh and final note, even the cab from the airport to the hotel said that this is one of the best hotels on the island so that set the tone for a wonderful trip.
Our room was to die for seriously, gorgeous view and very clean and comfortable. So many fun free activities like volleyball, paddleboarding/kayaking, water trampoline, karaoke,etc. The management was very sweet and attentive to all of our needs. The food at the restaurants were yummy and everything is so convenient. There is even a shuttle to take you to the other two hotels so you can spend the day there or eat at their restaurants.
My wife and I recently honeymooned to Turks and Caicos and stayed at the Blue Haven Resort. We couldn't have asked for a better experience. After planning a wedding for a year+, we wanted a vacation that would allow us to relax. And Blue Haven didn't disappoint. From the moment we arrived for check in the staff was prompt, courteous and helpful. This was each of our first times staying at an all inclusive resort and we loved it. Staff is attentive in terms of getting you more drinks or food, but also allows you to enjoy your relaxation as opposed to asking every minute if you need anything. Office staff helped set us up with a couples massage and a half day excursion and each of those were great.
Another great perk to Blue Haven is that you have access to the two sister resorts. This gives you some variation if you are there for a week and want to experience different beaches and/or food.
I can't say enough good things about the staff. We were greeted with a smile each time we saw someone and any question we had was always answered. Definitely already looking forward to our next trip back!
There are basically two main areas in Providenciales. This hotel is quietly located on the other side of the busy hotel area. U may like this place if U're looking for privacy. Typical all inclusive mediocre food and service.
