Published

Providenciales, TCI, November 22, 2016 – Providenciales, Turks & Caicos – Beach Enclave, a new concept offering the remarkable amenities and flawless services of a luxury resort recalibrated in a private villa setting, will debut Beach Enclave North Shore in November 2016 with nine ultra-luxury villas along the pristine and secluded coastal beaches of Turks & Caicos. The first of three developments on the coveted Caribbean islands, Beach Enclave North Shore will redefine modern hospitality, featuring refined service and specialized amenities designed for today’s most discerning travelers.

Beach Enclave North Shore combines the concept of home ownership with private villa rentals. Each of the nine beachfront and ocean view villas sold within one year from launch, and will be available for reservations beginning in November.

“As the preeminent luxury hospitality brand focused on private villas, we are thrilled to introduce an unprecedented travel experience to the region with the debut of the Beach Enclave concept in Turks & Caicos,” said Vasco Borges, Co-Founder and CEO of Beach Enclave. “Our commitment to the needs of our guests combined with bold design in a stunning locale makes for a truly singular island escape. We look forward to welcoming guests and inviting them to make one of our North Shore villas their home away from home while on island.”

Conceived for sophisticated, barefoot beach living at its best, Beach Enclave North Shore offers both beachfront and ocean view villas, boasting over 6,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor living space with the four- and five-bedroom homes. Each North Shore beachfront villa additionally offers a private beach area, offering a fully secluded beach experience at the steps of one’s villa. With a signature design that brings the indoors outside and the outside indoors, each villa is positioned to seamlessly showcase the spectacular views of the azure water and simultaneously invite natural trade winds through its doors. Infinity-edge pools, a built-in outdoor BBQ area, outdoor showers and multiple terraces and decks add to the villa’s allure. Stunning examples of contemporary beach architecture, the villas are located on a 10-acre beachfront enclave on one of the most exclusive beaches in Turks & Caicos, surrounded by lush tropical vegetation.

Beach Enclave’s brand offering is unlike any other in the Caribbean as it affords guests the opportunity to enjoy the convenience and comfort of the services and amenities of a resort, as well as the luxury of a private home. Beach Enclave North Shore amenities and services include dedicated butler/maid; private chef services; and yoga sessions; among others. Beach Enclave guests also benefit from a concierge, who can manage requests such as arranging spa treatments, grocery stocking, airport transportation, dining reservations and more as well as access to an oceanfront, fully equipped fitness room and yoga terraces looking out to the ocean and the distant reef barrier. Beach amenities are also available to guests and include the set-up of loungers and umbrellas, delivery of towels and water and the use of kayaks and snorkel equipment to explore the nearby coral reef. Guests can also arrange for activities such as kite surfing lessons and private boating excursions on the water, one of the best ways to discover Turks & Caicos.

With the design for the villas inspired by the idea of open air Caribbean living, the architecture and interiors of the Beach Enclave North Shore villas work together to create seamless transitions from exterior to interior spaces. The organic yet refined design by SWA Architects and Domino Creative Interior Designers presents an effortless, elegant and calm setting to take in the magnificent views and surroundings, which are truly the star of each private home. Materials echo nature in the driftwood finish of the millwork and the ocean color of various fabrics, while local iron-shore provides the grey tones of accent furniture. The cedar shingles and native stone of the exteriors are reinterpreted as grayed wood and creamy white floors inside the villas, while the sun bleached palette is complimented with layered neutrals offset by watery blues and greens. Shapes throughout the collection of villas reference nature, ranging from the oblique edge detail of the custom coffee table, to the literal translation of the “pebble” coffee table—an outdoor piece that replicates a stone found in nature only a few hundred times larger. Highlights of the exceptional furnishings include an over-sized, suspended daybed of solid teak construction and fully upholstered, plush double chaise lounges, both catering to peaceful afternoons with room for two.

Beach Enclave North Shore villas feature a fully equipped, top-of-the-line ocean-facing kitchen, with option to hire a chef for a meal or an entire stay, and indoor and outdoor dining is able to be enjoyed with the service of a private butler. Each beachfront villa has its own private beach area, each with the added benefit of a secluded wood deck shaded by natural vegetation and featuring a summer kitchen, fire-pit and outdoor shower. The ocean view villas are distinct with unmatched ocean views made possible by a 65-foot elevation. The beach and dedicated ocean view villas’ beach decks are a short walk or golf cart drive away.

Following the heels of the successful launch of Beach Enclave North Shore, with all homes sold within one year from launch, the brand’s expansion plans in Turks & Caicos will include the debut of Beach Enclave Long Bay and Beach Enclave Grace Bay. Construction of Beach Enclave Long Bay’s five luxury villas, located along one of Providenciales’ most exclusive beaches, will begin in November 2016, following a successful villa sales launch – the enclave will debut late 2017.

Beach Enclave Grace Bay is launching sales this winter, following a Friends and Family release earlier in the year, with just a few villas left for sale – construction is scheduled to start mid 2107. Beach Enclave North Shore villa rentals start at $2,500 plus tax per night for a four-bedroom villa and $4,000 plus tax per night for a five-bedroom villa. Providenciales, Turks & Caicos is easily assessable from a range of destinations, with direct flights offered daily. Flight time from New York is approximately three hours and flight time from Miami is approximately 90 minutes.

A Ministry of Health press release informed that the individual who was in quarantine in Grand Turk and requested emergency aid on Tuesday; response came from the public health team in Grand Turk.

The person, who we are told is a special needs young woman – was unvaccinated and had underlying medical conditions.

The death rate in the Turks and Caicos of both vaccinated and unvaccinated persons has climbed alarmingly this year.  In the 21-month period from March 2020 when the country recorded its first case to December 2021, there were 26 deaths recorded in the TCI.

In the 19 days since the start of 2022 that number has increased to 32; which means six deaths already in January.

‘Slow down on Cruising’, that’s the word from the Pan American Health Organization, PAHO in their latest recent press conference.

Dr. Ciro Ugarte Director of Health Emergencies at the PAHO was referring to the Bahamas but made sure to note that the advice was highly relevant to many countries in the times of omicron.

“In the context of intense transmission, due to the Omicron variant as we have highlighted several times. It is just logical to suspend or at least limit the cruise ship traffic as an outbreak on board might end up exceedingly high and probably will go beyond the capacity of local health services”

Both the Bahamas and the Turks and Caicos are experiencing a massive uptick in cases and several warnings regarding cruise travel have been issued by the US Centers for Disease Control.

Cruising just resumed for many regional countries this past Summer, Turks and Caicos was among the latest to restart on December 13.

A stop to sailing would be devastating to economies, however, ports of call like Grand Turk which are reeling with rocketing case numbers of COVID are urged to consider the suggestion of slowing down on ships by PAHO.
