With turquoise blue waters, white sand beaches, and swaying palm trees, Turks and Caicos is truly paradise on earth. And if you’re planning a trip down to this tropical oasis, you might be contemplating staying at an all-inclusive resort. There are many benefits to doing so, especially if you don’t want to worry about planning activities or booking dinner reservations. The best all-inclusive resorts have packages that include unlimited meals, water sports, and evening entertainment, so you can sit back and enjoy your vacation!
What is the Best All-Inclusive in Turks and Caicos?
Most hotels and resorts are located on Provicidenales, the largest and most developed island in Turks and Caicos. Here, you can stay at the Club Med Turkoise, Alexandra Resort, or Beaches Turks and Caicos.
But if you’re looking for a more exclusive experience, there are plenty of upscale resorts you can choose from as well.
For example, the Meridian Club and Ambergris Cay Resort are situated on private islands and offer top-notch amenities, accommodations, and dining (for those who can afford it).
But even if you don’t want to blow your entire budget on vacation, you can still find a nice resort where you can unwind and relax. Just take a look at the following options you have to choose from!
This beachfront resort is located in the Admiral Cockburn Land and Sea National Park on South Caicos. It is a protected nature reserve known for its flourishing coral reef system and abundant marine life.
The PADI Dive Center is just a short distance away (it’s the only one on the island), so you can head out into the open waters whenever you want. For this reason, it’s a great option if you’re here to scuba dive!
However, East Bay Resort isn’t just for divers. Guests can also enjoy complimentary kayaking, snorkeling, and paddleboarding off the shore of the resort’s private 1.5-mile-long beach.
In addition, your all-inclusive package also includes meals, drinks, and access to the resort’s many facilities (like the fitness center, pool, and private tennis court).
Every single room at East Bay is ocean-facing, which is one of the main reasons why I love this resort. They’re also quite spacious, with their most basic room still coming in at 592 square feet.
Club Med Turkoise
The adults-only Club Med Turkoise may be one of the oldest all-inclusive resorts on Providenciales, but don’t let its age fool you. It recently underwent a major renovation with the addition of a brand new infinity pool, main bar, and deluxe rooms.
Now guests can enjoy their stay in style while still having access to one of the best beaches on the Turks and Caicos islands – Grace Bay Beach.
Activities like snorkeling, kayaking, sailing, and even flying trapeze are included with your stay, while scuba diving, fishing, and jetskiing can be booked at an additional cost.
Your all-inclusive experience also includes unlimited dining at the hotel’s two restaurants and four bars.
And if you’re here to celebrate a special occasion, like a honeymoon or anniversary, then I highly recommend booking a treatment at their spa. The massages are done in a private palapa hut right there on the beach!
Rooms are clean and colorful, although a bit on the small size at just 215 square feet. Their refurbished deluxe rooms also have private balconies, separate toilets, and, most importantly, jaw-dropping ocean views.
Located on the private island of Pine Kay (just 15 minutes away by boat from Providenciales), the exclusive Meridian Club is the epitome of high-end luxury.
With only 13 beachfront suites, it’s the only accommodation on the island, which means you’ll have 800 acres of wilderness essentially all to yourself.
All rooms have private outdoor porches where you can admire the crashing ocean waves that are just 150 feet from your door.
The Meridian Club takes its all-inclusive offering very seriously. Guests get three gourmet meals a day, afternoon high tea, daily snorkeling trips by boat, non-motorized water sports, and use of the tennis courts, basketball courts, pool, and fitness studio.
You can also book other excursions, like scuba diving, for an extra fee. But it’s well worth the cost, considering you’re next to the third-largest reef system in the world.
If you’re in Turks and Caicos to scuba dive, then you’ll want to stay at the Bohio Dive Resort. It’s the only hotel on Grand Turk with a PADI dive shop!
There are dozens of excellent spots around the island that can be reached in just 5 to 8 minutes by boat, like the mile-deep Columbus Passage or the 100-year-old coral-encrusted British warship anchor.
Unfortunately, dives are not included in your all-inclusive rate, although there are special rates for those interested in a 7-day 10-dive package.
The Bohio Dive Resort has plenty of other activities to enjoy during your stay, so there’s no need to worry if you’re traveling with non-divers.
They even host fun events every night of the week, like live music, BBQ parties, or outdoor movies.
When it comes to food, the Bohio Dive Resort is not like a traditional all-inclusive, as the basic room rate does not include a dining plan. However, they have different packages if you want to add breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
The stunning Ambergris Cay Resort is also located on a private island, although it’s so remote that guests have to arrive by plane (the flight is included with your stay).
There are just ten suites available, although those traveling with large groups also have the option to rent one of the seven private villas.
While the resort has most activities that many all-inclusive resorts offer (like snorkeling, kayaking, and tennis), they also provide a few other high-end amenities to make your time here extra special.
For example, bone fishing lessons, guided nature walks, and beach bonfires are just a few other things you can do during your stay.
And if you’re bringing the kiddos along, there’s also a kid’s area in the club house with fun games and daily activities.
Needless to say, staying at the Ambergris Cay Resort does not come cheap. But if you want an all-inclusive resort that treats you like royalty – this is it.
As one of the area’s more luxurious family-friendly all-inclusive resorts, the Alexandra Resort has something to keep everyone in your party happy.
Adventure lovers will enjoy taking the Hobie cat or kayak out onto the water (the resort is located on Grace Bay Beach, steps away from the ocean).
At the same time, more leisurely vacation-goers can spend time by the pool or getting a relaxing massage at the Elevate Spa.
Kids under 12 not only get to stay and eat for free, but they can also join the Fun Pals Program, where they’ll spend the day doing fun activities and games while also making friends.
Alexandra Resort offers studios and 1- or 2-bedroom suites. If you’re traveling with a group, there’s also a spacious 4-bedroom penthouse that clocks in at a whopping 3,800 square feet.
And when you stay at the Alexandra Resort, you’ll also have access to all the restaurants and facilities at the nearby Blue Haven resort. That’s like two resorts in one!
The Blue Haven is a bit more upscale and has some incredible fine-dining restaurants.
Take my advice and book a table at the Fire & Ice Restaurant (they have amazing cocktails and fire pit seating!).
Speaking of the Blue Haven Resort, this hotel also makes this list of the best all-inclusive resorts in Turks and Caicos!
It’s located on a private white sand beach near the Blue Haven Marina, a popular docking spot for luxury sailboats and mega yachts.
But you don’t have to leave the property to enjoy the life of a VIP, as Blue Haven is world-renown for its upscale amenities and customer service team.
Kayaking, stand-up paddle boarding, and snorkeling are just a few of the activities included with your stay.
They can also organize guided tours and excursions if you want to go parasailing, fishing, or even wakeboarding.
The resort is perfect for foodies, as there are four on-site restaurants and bars.
However, you’re also free to hop on the complimentary shuttle to visit the Alexandra Resort, which has an additional 12 dining options that are included with your unlimited meal plan.
There’s a reason why Beaches Turks and Caicos is one of the most popular all-inclusive resorts on the island of Providenciales.
This expansive beach resort has over 750 rooms, six swimming pools, 21 restaurants, 15 bars, and its very own water park on-site.
If you’re traveling with kids, this resort is your best option, as there’s also a free kids club, arcade, video game lounge, and scenic train ride.
The list of included activities is neverending. Snorkeling, windsurfing, hydro bikes, kayaking, tennis, soccer – you name it, the Beaches Turks and Caicos probably has it!
And it’s one of the only Turks and Caicos all-inclusive resorts where you can go scuba diving for free (if you’re a certified diver).
On top of that, the resort also has an action-packed schedule of daily events and evening entertainment, so it’s impossible to be bored.
Rooms come in various sizes and themes, as the resort has different “villages” that resemble France, Italy, Key West, and the Caribbean.
If budget isn’t a concern, you can book one of their massive villas that come with private butler service.
The award-winning Windsong Resort is a charming boutique hotel nesting on 435 feet of Grace Bay’s white sand beach.
A snorkeling reef (Bight Reef) steps from the shore, teeming with tropical fish, turtles, rays, and more.
You can also explore the coastline by Hobie cat or paddleboard, although the best reef views are from the glass-bottomed kayaks available to hotel guests.
A wide variety of rooms are available to rent, from cozy studios with kitchenettes to luxury penthouse suites.
Having the ability to cook is a nice perk, as the dining options are relatively limited (there’s one beachside restaurant and one poolside grill).
But one of the coolest perks of staying here is their butler service. Whatever you need – chilled face towels, grocery shopping, dinner reservations – your personal butler is there to help.
The Grace Bay Club is essentially three resorts in one. There’s an adult-only section (the Hotel), a family-friendly area (the Villa Suites), and the ultra-luxury “resort within a resort” (the Estates).
But no matter which area you choose, you’ll be treated to the same upscale amenities like gourmet fine dining and day and night butler service. Plus, each room is a suite boasting dramatic ocean-facing views.
Complimentary activities include yoga, fitness classes, and snorkeling. Breakfast is included, although you’re pretty much on your own for any other meals.
However, the property has seven bars and restaurants if you don’t feel like venturing outside the hotel.
Without unlimited meals, the Grace Bay Club may not be a classic all-inclusive resort, but it’s an excellent option if you want to visit Turks and Caicos.
Turks and Caicos is one of my favorite destinations in the Caribbean, and I’m sure it’ll become one of your top spots once you get to spend some time here.
It doesn’t matter if you’re planning a honeymoon, a family getaway, or just a quiet vacation in paradise, you can’t go wrong with any of these resorts in Turks and Caicos.
