Today is our 20th Anniversary and we are thrilled to announce the kick-off of our milestone anniversary celebration year. In 1998 The Hartling Group opened the doors to The Sands, its first luxury property on Turks and Caicos’ acclaimed Grace Bay Beach. Since then, The Sands has continued evolving to be the very best it has ever been. Breathtaking ocean views, lush tropical gardens, highly rated service and hospitality, and amazing location along Grace Bay Beach – TripAdvisor’s World’s #1 Beach – it’s all here waiting for you!
To celebrate this exciting milestone, the resort has coined this year “The Sands’ Better than Ever Celebration” and will be featuring, promotions, and social media fun starting today to further commemorate this splendid anniversary.
On the heels of its multi-million dollar resort upgrade, the resort continues to dazzle guests and receive noteworthy awards. Most recently The Sands at Grace Bay was honored in the acclaimed “Guest Review Awards” presented by Booking.com, and The Sands is now a 2018 “Recommended” property on HolidayCheck – Europe’s biggest hotel review portal. The resort is proud to once again carry the acclaim as a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence property for the seventh year. U.S. News & World Report has named The Sands at Grace Bay as one of the 2018 “Best Hotels in the Turks and Caicos”– a commendation the resort has received since 2015. Additionally, past guest reviews have made The Sands a 2018 Hotels.com™ “Loved by Guests” award winner as well as a “2017 Family Favorite Hotel” by Family Vacation Critic.
