Desarrollos Hotel Group and the Turks and Caicos Islands government have signed a development agreement to build a brand new multi-million dollar resort.
The $224 million hotel, resort, casino and spa will be built in Grace Bay on the island of Providenciales and it will be managed by Ritz-Carlton Hotels Company.
Dr. Rufus Ewing, the Premier of Turks and Caicos, said of the new ambitious project:
"This European Plan style hotel development provides a welcome diversification to the TCI tourism sector as it is more of a traditional hotel, rather than the previously prevalent condominium model in the TCI,”
“At the same time, it further develops the luxury tourism offering in this destination with the addition of such an important luxury brand in Ritz Carlton."
The luxury resort will have 124 hotel guest rooms, penthouses, resort residences, and an array of luxury facilities including a lavish spa and a casino.
The Turks and Caicos government said construction work was expected to start this November and the project will take approximately three years to complete.
