Nikheel Advani of the TCHTA’s & Grace Bay Club guided the event which had an element of surprise; Trip Advisor was there and with the recently won awards for the Turks and Caicos which were presented to both Premier Rufus Ewing and Tourism Minister, Prosha Smith.

“Its an extreme pleasure to be here to present four Traveller’s Choice Awards to Turks and Caicos (applause).”

Carol Johnson is the Destination Sales Manager for the Caribbean & Latin America for Trip Advisor and has known of the TCI for a long time she admitted and explained that rewarding the destination with the world’s #1 island was all the doing of travellers who voted and it was no wonder as the TCI managed to secure four major prizes from Trip Advisor for 2015.

“What’s even better than that is that Grace Bay also won an award for the Best Beach in the World with the #2 Beach in the World; congratulations! Two weeks ago we rolled out with our best islands awards, Turks and Caicos also won in that category. Number one in the Caribbean was Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos, congratulations and the biggest and best of all is the #1 island in the world for 2015 is Providenciales in Turks and Caicos…”
