Ambergris Cay in Turks & Caicos Island
A vacation to the Caribbean is on everybody’s bucket list. You’ve probably thought about it a couple of times when planning your dream vacation. What you’ve never imagined, however, is a vacation in a privately-owned island in the Caribbean. Well, the Ambergris Cay is an exclusive private island that might just be the vacation destination of your dreams.
Although it’s not well-known by crowds, this secret island lies in the wild, untamed south-eastern edge of Turks and Caicos Islands – reserved for only the select few.
The biggest challenge for many island resorts is accessibility. But Ambergris has already streamlined this process. Boasting of the Caribbean’s largest private runway, Ambergris cay has its own airport, making guest arrivals fast, comfortable, and easy.
Guests traveling to the island first arrive at the main island’s airport, Providenciales International Airport, where they meet with representatives from the Ambergris Island. The representatives then take them on a short 18-minute flight to the resort. (This is a complimentary round trip).
The Turks and Caicos Collection group, however, demand a prior 72-hour reservation for the flight from Providenciales to Ambergris Cay. Guests are also required to be in Providenciales by 4 PM to make their day flights.
Beach-front Villas and Suites
Ambergris Cay embraces a standalone villa-themed accommodation style, treating guests to exclusive, luxurious villa and suites experience. There are 20 3 to 4-bedroom beachfront villas, each with a capacity of 6-8 guests with all the five-star services you’d expect; from excellent butler services to all-inclusive meals and premium drinks, daily housekeeping, 50-inch flatscreen TVs, complimentary wi-fi, and ultra-modern showers.
There are also ten spectacular one-bedroom villas with breath-taking ocean views. The suites take on a contemporary décor having three floors to ceiling window sides, lofty high ceilings, and remote-controlled window treatments. Each suite also comes with ocean-facing king-size beds, a fully stocked mini-fridge, a private plunge pool, a wraparound terrace with a sitting area, and an outdoor shower.
Additionally, the flatscreen tv has access to international premium cable channels and a laptop-size mini-safe.
