World-renowned international hotelier Kempinski Hotels has been named operator of a unique new luxury beachfront residences and resort, located on one of the last remaining pristine stretches of the award-winning Grace Bay Beach in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands. The project is being developed by JTRE, a leading European real estate developer and will be operated by Kempinski, Europe’s oldest hotelier – with more than 80 premium properties under management in 36 countries. The two companies signed an operating agreement and together will bring a new level of internationally renowned hospitality, contemporary design and elegant service to the Turks & Caicos Islands portfolio of vacation and ownership offerings.

Discreetly set in a quiet, undeveloped 11-acre stretch of Grace Bay Beach, these luxury residences and resort feature 431 feet of white sand beachfront. The low-footprint design offers 4 beachfront villas and 72 condominium residences, creating a private sanctuary that blends into the natural landscape, creating a serene and secluded setting. Well-placed on the uncrowded eastern end of the world’s most beautiful beach, the property is just minutes from the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club, shops and restaurants, and other attractions and conveniences, and a short drive to the destination’s international airport.

Along with graceful contemporary architecture set discretely against the breathtaking natural surroundings, Kempinski Grace Bay will feature a premium offering of luxury amenities as well as new-to-the island services for discerning guests and owners to enjoy. The design, the setting and the operator distinguish Kempinski Grace Bay as offering elegant seaside luxury with world-class hospitality.

Golfing with Graham

When you think Turks & Caicos, powdery soft sandy beaches and crystal clear turquoise waters immediately come to mind. But how many of you know we have a championship level golf course directly across from the beach?

35 years ago the Turks & Caicos Water Company decided to take on the formidable challenge of building a golf course in a country with little annual rainfall, topsoil or even golfers! But as the country’s largest private landowner they were committed to helping grow the TCI’s tourism industry. This was a task only a water company could handle!

So in 1989 construction began and by 1992 the Provo Golf Club was opened. In 2021, the club rebranded as The Royal Turks & Caicos Golf Club. Over those decades, the club has hosted too many charitable tournaments to mention as well as prestigious events like the Caribbean Amateur Golf Championship in 2022.

As an avid golfer it remains one of my favorite places on Providenciales. There are plans to offer homes directly on the golf course which will be released in the future, so stay tuned!!

Fun Fact: I shot my personal best – a 76 – last month!  You can find me the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club every Friday.

The Leeward development is located at the northeastern tip of Providenciales in the Turks & Caicos Islands.  A planned high-end residential neighborhood developed in the 1990’s by Leeward Limited, with the first phase of homes built by Johnson International.  The canal system was constructed in phases over a 15-year period as the demand for waterfront real estate with private dock space was increasing.

In the Turks & Caicos Islands’ most affluent community, you’ll find Byculla Villa. The Leeward neighbourhood is home to beautiful canal homes and – with 238 feet of frontage – few properties have as much waterfront. The villa has four spacious bedrooms but it was designed for expansion with the potential to add a second floor on the main section and increase the number of bedrooms.

Thanks to TCI’s perfect year round weather, this waterfront home was also designed with outdoor living in mind when laying out the home. Enjoy dining al fresco? You’ll love the outdoor dining area. Spend the day in the pool and sip a cocktail at the swim up bar. Or relax in the shade of the poolside tiki bar. The large canal front gazebo is where you’ll wave to your neighbours as they pass by on their way to a day on the water. Perhaps you’ll join them and head to your private boat dock?

The home is treasured by the owners but also currently available as a short term rental managed by one of the island’s top management companies – TKCA. There’s no question, Leeward is our island’s preferred location. For more information on Villa Byculla, currently listed for sale, please visit the link.
