Fresh in from Josh Brown, a freelance writer who writes about a variety of travel topics, he’s plugging Turks and Caicos as the perfect spot for honeymooners, newlyweds, and strung out execs in need of some high-level vacay. And who are we to disagree?
When planning a Caribbean vacation, several locations that typically come to mind are the Bahamas and Bermuda, but if you’re looking for a more subdued, chic location with fewer tourists, everyone who’s anyone knows that Turks and Caicos is the top-notch choice for sexy seclusion.
Conveniently located only about 90 minutes by plane from Miami, you can also find over 200 miles – yep, 200 miles – of white sandy beaches where coral reefs extend along the coast making this island the perfect area for diving. Resorts abound, but the favourite among gliteratti is probably The Regent Palms located at the center of the world-renowned Grace Bay Beach only 15 minutes from Providenciales Airport. With an 18-hole golf course, the marina a ten minute drive away, and accolades like Robb Report’s ‘One of the Top 100 Resorts in the World – 2008′ and Condé Nast Hot List for New Spas in the World – 2008’, don’t say we didn’t warn you… you’re gonna get drenched in five-star sexiness. The Regent Palms contains 72 suites, a world-class spa, and two signature restaurants, Parallel23 and Plunge.
If you are unsure where to begin looking for great deals on your trip, consider looking online to source prices (anywhere from $400 +/night) or speak with a travel agent as many agencies offer great deals on vacation packages to Caribbean islands like Turks and Caicos. For example, Liberty Travel, a network of – literally – hundreds of travel specialists all in one place – has a vacation package to spend 3 nights at The Regent Palms resort at a fraction of the cost. Sure, there are many reasons to choose the Caribbean for your next vacation, but Turks and Caicos just might provide exactly the sort of sleek experience your wanderlusting heart craves.
