Hyatt Announces Plans for Andaz Turks & Caicos at Grace Bay

Hyatt is bringing its Andaz brand to the Caribbean in 2021.

The Andaz Turks & Caicos at Grace Bay will be the brand’s first foray in the region. The resort is being developed by Vista Development Ltd. and will cover more than 5.5 acres along Grace Bay Beach.

Ranked the number one beach in the world by TripAdvisor’s Traveler Choice Awards 2018, Grace Bay Beach is next to the Bight Reef.

The new property is being designed by RAD Architecture Inc and will include modern, light-filled interiors by Francisco Jove of Modus Operandi, who also designed the Andaz Mayakoba Resort Riviera Maya and the Andaz Costa Rica Resort at Peninsula Papagayo.

“We are thrilled to announce development plans for the first Andaz branded resort and residences in the Caribbean,” Myles McGourty, senior vice president, Latin America & Caribbean, Hyatt, said in a statement. “We look forward to working with Vista Development Ltd. to introduce the inspiring concept of this luxury lifestyle Hyatt brand to a world-class destination like Turks & Caicos’ coveted Grace Bay.”

The resort will include two buildings, the 59-key hotel and the 74-unit branded residences, with co-located amenities.

Residential floor plans include studios, one-bedroom, two-bedroom and three-bedroom units, as well as penthouses with four bedrooms. Residential owners will have the option of participating in a hotel rental program managed by Andaz Turks & Caicos at Grace Bay.

The Turks and Caicos resort will also include four restaurants and bars, among them an elevated venue featuring unobstructed panoramic views.

Health and wellness offerings at the resort encompass a state-of-the-art indoor wellbeing facility, an outdoor garden yoga studio and a full-service indoor and outdoor spa with dedicated luxury concierge services.

“It’s an honor to share our vision for the project in tandem with such a reputable flagship brand as Andaz,” Matt McDonald, director of Vista Development, Ltd, said in a statement. “Through our more than 30 collective years of work in the Turks & Caicos market, we’ve recognized the uniqueness of the location and the potential for an unparalleled offering. We look forward to seeing the project evolve with Hyatt and become part of the community and culture of Turks & Caicos.”
