Turks and Caicos is a beautiful Caribbean destination comprised of 40 low-lying coral islands forming a stunning archipelago. Home to some of the best beaches, here you’ll discover lush jungle, warm turquoise waters and impossibly fresh seafood — typically served beachfront with a mojito, no less.

When it comes to choosing a place to stay on a trip to Turks and Caicos, there are plenty of options. At first glance, it seems impossible to choose between all the luxury resorts. All are beachfront, beautiful and boast similar activities and excursions. But, if you dive into the nuanced differences between each, you’ll discover that a few really shine above the rest. From adults-only pools and oceanfront rooms on a private island, to luxury villas designed to feel like your very own resort, to sprawling all-inclusive hotels flanked by natural reserves — the following nine hotels promise the perfect Caribbean getaway from the moment you check in:

COMO Parrot Cay

Nestled on the private island of Parrot Cay, a 1,000-acre oasis in Turks and Caicos, COMO Parrot Cay is a dreamy five-star luxury resort. Choose between private villas, large suites and expansive rooms that are bright, airy and decorated with Balinese furniture in a minimalist style. It’s only a 50-minute airport transfer from the Providenciales airport to this Caribbean getaway, where you’ll discover sugary beaches with slow-lapping waves waiting for you to jump in. Once you arrive in paradise, a holistic spa awaits, replete with open-air yoga classes, infinity pools, steam rooms, saunas, hot tubs and jacuzzis. Aside from a bevy of ways to unwind and relax, COMO Parrot Cay boasts plenty of on-site dining options, including Lotus, Terrace and the Beach Club. A quick note about Lotus: this eatery is widely considered one of the best in Turks and Caicos, with a menu serving Caribbean fare by day and contemporary Asian dishes by night.
