Seven Stars Resort & Spa

US travelers who are ready to get their travel fix without the need to fly to Europe this summer may now rejoice for the beautiful islands of Turks and Caicos await you with open arms. Currently, flights from the United States are up and running, so with just three hours from New York, two hours from Atlanta, and one hour and fifteen minutes from Miami, Turks and Caicos is ideally situated for convenient and worry-free travel. Presently, the Turks and Caicos Islands are now requiring a negative COVID-19 PCR test result that has been issued within five days of travel. Children under the age of 10 years old are not required to be tested. Additionally, travelers must have medical travel insurance that covers medevac, a completed health screening questionnaire, and certification that they have read and agreed to the privacy policy document. All of these documents can be conveniently uploaded to the TCI Assured portal that is available on the Turk And Caicos Islands Tourist Board website in advance of their arrival.

Consecutively awarded for being the Caribbean’s Leading Beach Destination in addition to being awarded the Caribbean’s Most Romantic Destination 2020 at this years’ 27th Annual World Travel Awards Caribbean Gala, Turks & Caicos is the destination of choice for travelers who are seeking luxury, exclusivity, unparalleled beauty and new safety practices that will insure worry-free travel. Accepting the award, Minister of Tourism Hon. Ralph Higgs stated,“It was my pleasure to have accepted the World Travel Awards on behalf of the Turks and Caicos Islands we are extremely honored. Being recognized as the Caribbean’s most romantic destination in particular, is an excellent attainment as we have taken steps to position the destination as a preferred wedding and honeymoon destination. These achievements are testament to the commitment and hard work of our amazing team and partners, who continue to work diligently in promoting brand TCI”.

While Turks and Caicos is made up of multiple islands, Providenciales is the most populated and well-known for its plentiful and exquisite beaches. Thanks to the broken shells and coral, the sand is white, soft and powdery and free of the sediment that typically mars most beaches. The most popular and easy to access beaches are the famed Grace Bay Beach, The Bright Beach and Leeward Beach. 

Ocean Front Master Bedroom

The majority of the luxury hotels, resorts and vacation rentals can be found on Grace Bay which is consistently ranked as one of the best beaches in the world. Set along the tranquil waters of Grace Bay, Seven Stars Resort & Spa takes its name from the seven stars of the Pleiades constellation of Greek mythology which are said to shine most brightly when positioned above the islands.  And shine brightly it does, as Seven Stars Resort & Spa embraces the concept of ‘barefoot elegance” fully by offering white-glove service, five-star dining, endless water sports and a Champagne Shack that offers chilled Champagne by the bucketful in addition to refreshing coconut cocktails and alcohol-free beverages.

Champagne Shack

In 2019, Seven Stars Resort & Spa debuted more than $12 million in property wide capital improvements which included a complete redesign of its 167 expansive suites and living room lobby; the addition of a second, heated salt-water adult pool; upgrades and renovations to its fitness center; an expansion of its spa and boutique; and most recently the opening of its private dining room, The Tasting Room. The redesigned rooms are luxuriously appointed in tones of white, grey and blue, offering junior, one- bedroom, two -bedroom or three-bedroom options with private balconies and gourmet kitchens.
