American hospitality chain Marriott International has announced the opening of The Ritz-Carlton, Turks and Caicos, marking the debut of the brand in the island paradise.
Location and Design
The Ritz-Carlton, Turks and Caicos is situated in the world-famous Grace Bay in Providenciales.
The hotel is designed by Coleman Partners Architects, L.L.C. and is inspired by the island’s natural splendour. Through the use of rich wood, the design narrative is rooted in the destination’s Lucayan heritage, paying tribute to the people who have inhabited the islands, while the endemic flora of cactuses, sisals and sponges from Turks and Caicos are gracefully incorporated in the surroundings. This includes the native turk-head cactus, which is uniquely adapted in the arid climate and provides a magical desert charm.
Donna McNamara, Vice President and Global Brand Leader, The Ritz-Carlton, said:
We are thrilled to expand our global portfolio with the debut of The Ritz-Carlton, Turks & Caicos, a destination known for its stunning natural environment, which has long served as an alluring retreat for the world’s most discerning travelers. Whether enjoying a sunset sail or family snorkel from the resort’s private catamaran, Lady Grace, to relaxing poolside, The Ritz-Carlton, Turks & Caicos offers the perfect opportunity for our guests to recharge and reconnect while making lasting memories.
