Today: Top 10 best luxury hotels & resorts in Turks & Caicos

Turks and Caicos is one my favorite islands for a holiday in the Caribbean and the closest you can get to Maldivian like scenery within a short flight from the USA. The small tropical archipelago nation comprises over forty islands southeast of the Bahamas. The breathtakingly beautiful islands have some of the planet’s most ethereal turquoise seas and finest powdery-sand beaches, and are surrounded by the globe’s third-largest coral reef. Each island and cay in the archipelago is a destination on to its own. While their neighbors of the Bahamas went mass with their lost-on-the-way-to-Las-Vegas resorts, Turks and Caicos went class, quietly opening a string of very luxurious resorts in the past two decades. Here’s my selection of the 10 best luxury hotels & resorts in Turks & Caicos.
