Brand new The Ritz-Carlton, Turks & Caicos
For Turks & Caicos, it’s one of the eagerly anticipated resort properties on the island—and also one of the largest luxury hotels.

The hotel offers a tropical getaway, blending the natural beauty of the destination with the legendary service and elegant accommodations for which The Ritz-Carlton brand is known.
Designed by Coleman Partners Architects, L.L.C., The Ritz-Carlton, Turks & Caicos is inspired by the island’s natural splendor. Through the use of rich wood, the design narrative is rooted in the destination’s Lucayan heritage, paying tribute to the people who have inhabited the islands, while the endemic flora of cactuses, sisals and sponges from Turks & Caicos are gracefully incorporated in the surroundings.
