Kempinski Hotels has been named operator of a unique new luxury beachfront resort and residences located on Grace Bay Beach in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands.

The project is being developed by European real estate firm JTRE, which signed the operating agreement with Kempinski.

Beachfront accommodation

Set in a quiet, undeveloped 11-acre stretch of Grace Bay Beach, the luxury resort and residences feature 431 feet of white sand beachfront.

The low-footprint design offers four beachfront villas and 72 condominium residences, creating a private sanctuary that blends into the natural landscape.

Luxury amenities

Along with contemporary architecture, Kempinski Grace Bay will feature a premium offering of luxury amenities as well as new-to-the island services for guests and owners.

Offerings start with a grand arrival entrance area and lush lobby creating a garden oasis and bar with a view over the entire resort. Facilities include three diverse dining venues, a beach club, two resort-style pools, an indoor luxury spa and fitness centre, tennis and paddle courts, a kids club, as well as an indoor golf simulator.

Low density layout

According to Kempinski, attention to detail and environmental sustainability are hallmarks of the development, which respects the landscape of native plants, sand and stone that borders Princess Alexander National Park.

In keeping with the Kempinski ethos of ‘less is more’, the property is purposely being developed as low density to ensure an exclusive and low traffic experience.

Desirable location

Bernold Schroeder, CEO of Kempinski Group and chairman of the management board of Kempinski AG, said: “We are pleased to add this magnificent property in a world-class destination to our international portfolio of luxury hotels and vacation residences.

“Its location set directly on one of the most desirable beaches in the world offers our clients an unmatched experience to enjoy the beauty of this stunning seaside setting, embraced by the luxury and hospitality Kempinski is known for throughout the world.”

Continuing partnership

Christophe Piffaretti, chief development officer, member of the management board of Kempinski, added: “We embarked on our journey with JTRE nearly two decades ago, and today, with pride, we oversee two of their exceptional hotels.

“It’s a delightful honour to once again be chosen by these visionary developers for their upcoming venture in Turks and Caicos.”

New standard setting

Marek Baca, chief representative for the Americas for JTRE, commented: “The Kempinski brand sets a new standard for international service and luxury for Turks and Caicos visitors and investors.

“Its proven expertise in delivering exceptional and memorable experiences, combined with the casual elegance of this enticing architectural design and location, make this a treasured ‘best of both worlds’ destination for discerning travellers worldwide.”
