Beaches Turks & Caicos Family All Inclusive Resort experienced high wind gusts from Hurricane Irma. Many palm trees on the property were blown down, but the damage to buildings was minor. Beaches Turks & Caicos will be closed until a full assessment and repairs are completed.
Here’s the official statement from the staff at Beaches Turks & Caicos All Inclusive Resort:
Beaches Turks & Caicos can now report that following the passing of Hurricane Irma, the strongest storm ever reported in the Atlantic Ocean, all guests and staff are safe and comfortable on resort. Although the airport remains closed at this time, the team will work with local authorities to determine a timetable for safe passage home for all guests. As soon as the airport reopens, our team will conduct a full assessment of the resort and announce a reopening date. As always, we are committed to guest safety and want to ensure we deliver the experience travelers have come to expect from Beaches Turks & Caicos. Guests impacted should call 1-800-BEACHES as soon as possible to adjust upcoming vacation plans. Although it appears the worst of Hurricane Irma’s impact has now passed for the majority of the Caribbean, our thoughts remain with our brothers and sisters throughout the region, as well as those in its path in the US.
