Kardashian Level Luxury in Turks & Caicos

By Travel Savvy

The Kardashian Klan recently vacationed in the Turks & Caicos for Kourtney’s 40th birthday celebration, and all of us are suffering major vacay envy. According to her ‘gram, Khloe loves this destination for the white sand beaches, the crystal waters, and the luxury vibe everywhere you turn.

Here are three top-notch properties on the main island of Providenciales - and one on its own private island- where you can live your best life down in paradise.



A stunning destination resort with an Asian-inspired aesthetic, Amanyara is all about tranquility and zen.  Guests can stay in one of the 38 pavillions or one of 18 private villas that feature 2 to 6 bedrooms and private lap pools.

Ready for some company? Join other guests at the main pool or spend the day on the property’s private beach. Fitness buffs can enjoy an hour or two at the extensive fitness center with private trainers and yoga studio, or get competitive on one of four tennis courts. Need more zen? Head to the Amanyara Spa with its own private pool and a long list of treatment offerings. Only 25 minutes from the airport, this property also borders the Northwest Point Marine National Park, known for some of the world’s best diving. Waterlife enthusiasts can join a guided snorkeling tour right from the private beach.



Wymara Resort

This sleek 91-room property in Providenciales feels more modern and stylish than the average high-end Caribbean resort. Clean lines and chic interiors with lots of white upholstery add to a Miami-ish feel. Located on the western most part of Grace Bay Beach (widely considered to be one of the best beaches in the world), every room provides sweeping ocean views. US News and World Report praises the boutique’s ‘modern, opulent’ feel as well as high-end amenities such as in-room Bose sound systems, LCD televisions and digital blinds. Guests come back for the consistently attentive service and low-key scene.



The Palms Turks & Caicos

Perfect for a luxe family vacation, the Palms, in Grace Bay, offers a wide array of amenities meant to keep the whole family happy and occupied--starting with their sprawling infinity pool surrounded by comfy lounging stations and poolside wifi. The resort bills itself as an “all- suite” hotel, and many of the larger rooms also offer in-room washer dryer and kitchenettes. There’s a kids’ club for 12 and under, complimentary beach toys and snorkeling equipment, and plenty of restaurants and dining options to keep everyone fed the whole day. To top it all off, the 25,000 sq. ft. award-winning spa (pictured) offers a full menu of facials, massages, body wraps, beauty treatments, and more.


COMO Parrot Cay

Want something off the beaten path? Take a 30 minute boat ride from Providenciales to a 1,000 acre private island getaway, the COMO Parrot Cay. This posh destination resort is a fave with celebrities, which means you can stake out a chaise by the pool or private beach and maybe catch a glimpse of someone famous. Of course, famous folk don’t go for a place with lots of prying eyes, so expect a low-key, private atmosphere--which is perfect for those wanting to pursue a healthy, yoga-slash-meditation-slash-Ayurveda getaway. The on-site wellness center, COMO Shambala Spa, offers an array of holistic treatments and truly reflects its sterling reputation as one of the best spas in the region. The sugar sand beach is heavenly and reviews consistently praise the property's food and dining offerings.
