Laid-back island living, bespoke experiences, and modern luxuries come together at the The Palms Turks and Caicos, an elegant British estate-inspired resort where iPod Minis and tropical sorbets await poolside, the sprawling suites start at 1,500 square feet, and a spa menu offers an East-meets-West experience. The resort’s five buildings, built from hand-cut coral stone, are set on 12 acres of manicured gardens at the edge of powder-soft Grace Bay Beach; inside, four-poster beds with hand-tufted mattresses, marble floors, vaulted ceilings and milled crown moldings lend suites an air of period elegance. Rooms also have open-concept dining areas and living spaces, plus gourmet kitchens in One-Bedroom Suites. If you’re not in the mood to cook, the resort can arrange for a private chef to whip up a little something—say, a trio of Quebec foie gras and fresh crab rolls—for an intimate gathering on the private terrace. The heart of the resort is the infinity pool, which serpentines around wooden decks, palm trees, sun pods, and sexy lounger beds covered in soft terry fabric and tangerine-colored cushions where, in the heat of the afternoon, a pool attendant distributes free fruit kabobs and chilled towels. Should you want a bite, swim up to Plunge bar. Save time for the spa, where exfoliating scrubs incorporate locally produced sea salt and crushed queen conch shells. After working up an appetite paddleboarding on Grace Bay Beach, hit Parallel23, where the culinary team prepares casual Caribbean specialties like corn and conch chowder.
In the Area
The Turks and Caicos islands are renowned for their world class diving. Don’t worry if you’re not PADI certified – Dive Provo can have you suited up after a one day Discovery Course. Adventure-seekers who prefer to stay on shore can explore the island via Vespa on a guided tour with Paradise Scooters. You’ll drive off the beaten path, stopping to see some TCI treasures including the world’s only Conch Farm, Emerald Cay, and Sapodilla Bay, with a stop for lunch at Da Conch Shack, a seaside spot full of island charm, complete with tables dug into the sand and a live calypso band. At sunset, head to beachfront pop-up bar and restaurant Stix for fantastic jerk roasted coconut corn on the cob and grilled coriander lionfish served shish kebab style – you guessed it – on sticks.
How to Get There
Everything about this place was EXCEPTIONAL!!!!!! hands down primo!!! From the room, view, food, personnel, and beach - it was one of the best vacations we've ever had. It was a great place to relax and kick back, where there weren't that many activities. Which was fine, because might have been a distraction to all of its natural beauty & charm!
When we were looking for a place to getaway and celebrate a special birthday, The Palms on Turks and Caicos was at the top of the list. I work for a corporate events agency and found these place when we were putting together a bid for a potential client. I fell in love with it the minute I saw the photos.
We were there for 4 nights in November 2019 and had a wonderful time. The grounds were beautiful with flowers everywhere. The room was beautifully decorated and fairly spacious for one of the smaller rooms with its own private patio off a sliding glad door. The sprawling pool was lovely. But my favorite was the beach with its turquoise water, the softest white sand and gentle waves. The water was comfortable and we could have stayed in it forever.
Happy hour at the beach bar ran from 5 to 6 each night with drinks which are normally $15 at half off. They were delicious, maybe a little too much so. The first night we had 3 drinks each (and we are not big drinkers) but that turned out to be too much for us. They do give a generous pour, so if you, like us, are not big drinkers you might ask them to ease off on the alcohol.
Everyone that worked at the hotel was so nice. The breakfast buffet which was included in our package was delicious. We booked through Costco and got a good price along with free transfers to and from the airport.
Great resort and relaxing time. The place is clean the coffee could be better. We went over the summer and had a great time. We didn't realize there was an adults only section so the kids were not happy about that since they had to stay in a smaller section and they are teens so it was a bit too small.
The best service we had while there and from any restaurant I have ever been to was with Oats. He was amazing with his fun personality that the kids loved and really helped customize the meal for the kids. When he saw the kids the next day and one of my sons had a really bad bug bite he helped us with that and gave us some natural remedies. Make sure you get to know Oats while you are there we wish we met him sooner on our trip. If we go back to Turks it would be for people like him.
