If you’ve been dreaming of a quickie island getaway, it’s now within your reach. And no, we’re not talking about the Bahamas or St. Thomas or one of those other pedestrian isles (joking, joking), we’re talking about Turks & Caicos. That fabled place where the water is crystal blue, the sand is whiter than white, the rum punches are icy cold, and oh yeah, the prices are sky high…until now that is.
Just this week CheapCaribbean.com began offering a hotel and flight combo deal from New York to Turks for three nights and four days starting at $879 per person. That price comprises both your flight (including lots of non-stop options) from NYC and your hotel stay at the 4.5-star Seven Stars Resort & Spa on Grace Bay Beach. Oh, and daily breakfast too—which always sweetens the pot in our opinion!
Unlike other flash travel sales, this resort actually delivers—all the suites have marble bathrooms, flat-screen TVs, iPod docking stations and L’Occitaine amenities. The property itself includes two restaurants, lighted tennis courts, gratis bicycles for exploring, yoga and complimentary water sports galore like sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and paddle boarding. And let’s not forget that salt-water pool overlooking the ocean and Grace Beach—which was recently voted the #2 beach in the world by TripAdvisor's Traveler's Choice Award. Yep, that right there is the real reason why we’re all considering this trip. (Parents: An on-site kids camp is also available, as is a complimentary kids club room.)
THE DEAL: $361 flights from major west coast cities to major Hawaiian airports
WHEN YOU CAN GO: 6/1-8/31 (with prices starting at $879 for four days and three nights); 9/1-10/31 (with prices starting at $959 for five days and four nights); 11/1-12/18 (with prices starting at $1249 for five days and four nights)
