Kempinski Hotels will operate luxury beachfront residences and a resort on a pristine stretch of Grace Bay Beach in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands.
The project is being developed by JTRE, a leading European real estate developer and will be operated by Kempinski.
The two companies have signed an operating agreement, and together, will bring “a new level of internationally renowned hospitality, contemporary design and elegant service to the Turks & Caicos Islands portfolio of vacation and ownership offerings,” reads a press release.
Set in a quiet, undeveloped 11-acre stretch of Grace Bay Beach, the luxury residences and resort 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, creating a serene and secluded setting.
The property is just minutes from the Royal Turks and Caicos Golf Club, shops and restaurants, and other attractions and conveniences, and a short drive to the destination’s international airport.
Along with contemporary architecture, Kempinski Grace Bay will feature a premium offering of luxury amenities as well as new-to-the island services, the company says.
“We are pleased to add this magnificent property in a world-class destination to our international portfolio of luxury hotels and vacation residences,” said Bernold Schroeder, CEO of Kempinski Group and chairman of the management board of Kempinski AG. “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.”
“Less is more” luxury
The property offers both the privacy afforded by one of the few remaining undeveloped beachfront stretches on the island and the convenience of its close proximity to Grace Bay’s attractions, services and tourism amenities.
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.
“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 travelers worldwide,” said Marek Baca, Chief Representative for the Americas for JTRE, in a statement.
The three main condo-style residences on the property are stepped back from the beach to create a tropical oasis in the courtyard.
They are configured as studio, one, two and three-bedroom suites including four or five-bedroom penthouse units.
Four one-story villas, each featuring six spacious ocean facing bedrooms, grace the front of the property.
Premium level amenities will enhance the experience, starting with a grand arrival entrance area and lush lobby creating a garden oasis and spectacular bar with a view over the entire resort.
The low-density property layout features ample space to dine, socialize, recreate, and relax.
It offers three diverse dining venues including 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, ideal for warming up for a round at the nearby championship caliber Royal Turks & Caicos Golf Club.
Unique ownership opportunities are presented in two scenarios: beach side condominiums under a strata regime and private villas offered as a land parcel with a construction contract.
Pre-construction pricing and availability will be announced in early 2024, the company said.
