Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort Villages and Spa will temporarily close beginning Sept. 1 to undertake a wide-ranging enhancement program. The resort will reopen on Oct. 19. According to Gordon “Butch”Stewart, chairman for Sandals Resorts International, parent company of Beaches Resorts, the decision to close Beaches Turks & Caicos was based on the level of guest interruption during the improvement work which will include construction of a new “Sky Slide”waterpark feature and back-of-house operational developments that will directly impact service standards. “We regret the inconvenience that closing will bring, but our concern must be with the safety and comfort of our guests first,”said Stewart. “With the opening this month of the US$95 million Key West Luxury Village, Beaches Turks & Caicos continues to raise the bar on family vacations and we fully expect that our work this fall will keep this beloved property a favourite worldwide.”All bookings for the affected time period are protected. Guests may relocate to any available resort of their choice within the Sandals Resorts and Beaches Resorts portfolio. If guests wish to rebook at another Sandals resort or Beaches resort on or before May 20, Sandals will cover any airline change fees and additional ticket costs as well as any rate difference at the new resort. If guests rebook at another Sandals resort or Beaches resort after May 20, Sandals will cover airline change fees only and guests will receive a credit for the original value of their Beaches Turks & Caicos vacation applicable towards their new booking. If guests wish to rebook their vacation at Beaches Turks & Caicos, the original rate booked will be protected for whenever they choose to travel. All guests wishing to rebook or relocate may use their resort credit for travel now through Dec. 20, 2014. Blackout dates and restrictions apply.
