The Turks & Caicos Islands Tourist Board is again welcoming travelers to Providenciales with the opening of Providenciales International Airport for unrestricted commercial flights. Impacted by Hurricane Ike, Providenciales is buzzing again as people return to normal, everyday life and tourists enjoy the island.

“More than 50 percent of our hotels are fully open and operational with the remaining hotels opening the first of October after they have completed their annual general maintenance,” said Honorable Wayne Garland, executive chairman of the Turks & Caicos Tourist Board in a written statement.

Many of Providenciales’ resorts are currently open to guests including The Somerset, The TuscanyClub Med, The Regent Palms and The Sands on Grace Bay, and Seven Stars. Parrot Cay and Beaches will reopen on September 27. Grace Bay Club and Turks & Caicos Club will reopen on October 1 after regularly scheduled annual maintenance. Ocean Club Resort, Ocean Club West, Nikki Beach Hotel and Amanyara will reopen in the coming weeks after landscaping cleanup is complete.
