November 2016 is going to be a landmark tourism high season due to two more luxury resorts coming on stream, and offering new destinations within destination TCI.
Sail Rock Resort in South Caicos will open with 20 rooms and on November 1, 2016 the Shore Club on Long Bay in Providenciales will welcome its first guests.
A three site tour, led by Deputy Director of Tourism Mary Lightbourne and the TCI Tourist Board representatives in Canada, Rosemary Wilson and in the USA, Pamela Ewing was deemed a complete success.
Sail Rock, East Bay – also in South Caicos – and Shore Club in Provo were seen by the travel wholesalers, booking companies and international media; all appeared to get rave reviews as anticipation mounts for these new offerings.
Grant Nobel, Executive Director at Sail Rock, during the tour in South yesterday, talked about airport, infrastructural and historical development works being done to enhance the South Caicos getaway. The villas, which are still under construction, give views of the Atlantic Ocean on three levels; the site will keep much of the natural flora and is billed as an eco-escape.
A short ride and the tour moved to already opened, East Bay Resort which is managed by Darik Riggs and is the largest resort development outside of Provo. The resort has 55 suites operational and has proven itself as good for domestic tourism during the recent South Caicos Regatta.
East Bay Resort There is a pool, water adventures including kayaks and hovercraft, elegant, tropical suites and a dining experience, deliciously comparable to the finest restaurants in Provo. East Bay Resort has been operating since January.
Another new destination within the country, Long Bay, will open up as more than the ideal place for kite surfing. The Shore Club is a masterpiece on that stretch of beach, with its multi-million dollar residences including finely tailored penthouses.
Karen Whitt, General Manager of the Palms which is one of three in the Hartling Group of resorts, led the contingent through the vacation homes.
There was a lot of ‘ooohing’ and ‘aaahing’ as the craftsmanship, attention to detail, coziness, opulence, décor, amenities, service and the view mesmerized all on the site tour.
