The good-news story even had a Canadian twist, with guests hailing from Toronto – the Jenkins family – making their way to the renewed resort as the first guests to arrive for the grand reopening.

“We know how important vacation time is and so we’re just delighted that Beaches Turks & Caicos is not only reopening its doors but we’ve also introduced some amazing new features making this award-winning resort better than ever,” said Gordon ‘Butch’ Stewart, Founder and Chairman of Sandals Resorts International. “The entire resort has been refreshed and our staff is eagerly awaiting the arrival of our guests.”

The resort has expanded its 5-Star Global Gourmet offerings to include Beaches’ first Indian restaurant, Bombay Club, bringing the total number of restaurants to 21.

Guests will also be able to indulge in two brand new food trucks at the waterpark: Mr. Mac, serving mac and cheese, and Curls ‘n Swirls for ice cream.

Families will also have the opportunity to take part in new culinary adventures happening every night, such as a fish fry on Wednesdays and weekly beach parties featuring live entertainment and cuisines from around the world.

Additionally, Beaches Turks & Caicos will debut new entertainment experiences as part of its state-of-the art Xbox Play Lounge, including the new Xbox One X where guests of all ages can experience immersive 4k gaming.

Accommodations across all five of the resort’s villages have also been improved and the lobbies and public areas have new finishing touches.

The Sandals Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Beaches Resorts’ parent company, Sandals Resorts International, was deeply involved in the recovery effort following Hurricane Irma.

The Sandals Foundation and team members from Beaches Turks & Caicos partnered with the Salvation Army and the Red Cross to deliver food items to victims of one of the most powerful hurricanes in history.

The nonprofit Sandals Foundation is dedicated to the communities where SRI operates throughout the Caribbean, and 100% of the monies contributed to The Sandals Foundation goes directly to programs benefiting the Caribbean.
