Beaches Turks and Caicos Announces Temporary ClosingMay 7, 2013 By: Newswire
Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages and Spa will temporarily close beginning September 1 to undertake a wide-ranging enhancement program. The resort will reopen on October 19.
According to Gordon “Butch” Stewart, chairman for Sandals Resorts International, parent company of Beaches Resorts, the decision to close Beaches Turks & Caicos was based on the level of guest interruption during the improvement work which will include construction of a new "Sky Slide" waterpark feature and back-of-house operational developments that will directly impact service standards.
“We regret the inconvenience that closing will bring, but our concern must be with the safety and comfort of our guests first,” said Stewart in a written release. “With the opening this month of the $95 million Key West Luxury Village, Beaches Turks & Caicos continues to raise the bar on family vacations and we fully expect that our work this fall will keep this beloved property a favorite worldwide.”
All bookings for the affected time period are protected. Clients may relocate to any available resort of their choice within the Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts portfolio.
