As winter brings us colder days, the irresistible allure of escaping to a private getaway beckons. For those familiar with the world’s hidden treasures, the mere mention of Pine Cay in Turks & Caicos would certainly grab a listeners attention, and its mysterious allure is no coincidence.

This clandestine gem in Turks & Caicos has served as a cherished destination for a select few since its inception by a group of close-knit transatlantic families captivated by the island’s charm in the 1970s. Originally conceived as The Meridian Club, a modest resort and club for island homeowners (only 38 residential plots), the hotel underwent a transformative makeover recently, earning the coveted Relais & Châteaux accreditation.

While blending the past with the present, Pine Cay preserves its low-key legacy while embracing modern sophistication. With 11 newly introduced redesigned beachfront rooms, Pine Cay now allows discerning travelers to access this well-kept secret, once known only to the world’s most elite.

A Divine Caribbean Location
Pine Cay unfolds endless nature and adventure on its exclusive two-mile stretch of pristine, private white-sand beach. A 20-minute boat ride from Providenciales, mainland Turks & Caicos, the island boasts the world’s third-largest barrier reef, salt flats, freshwater lagoons and endless crystal blue water. As the only hotel on the island, guests have paradise to themselves and can immerse themselves in nature through snorkeling, dazzling diving, kitesurfing, and more.

Private Homes & Villas
For those seeking refuge in one of the original private villas, the island now features a collection of newly renovated private homes available for exclusive-use rentals within the Relais Chateau collection. Offering the seclusion of a private villa but the services of a luxury hotel, villa owners and their rental guests can access the hotel’s incredible concierge services, curated dining offerings, spa, and more.

One of the newest in the collection is The Boat House. Prominently situated at the top of the island, this home offers three bedrooms, indoor-outdoor living spaces, and private lagoon access, providing the perfect blend of seclusion and luxury.

The Driftwood Retreat
Driftwood is a timeless seaside retreat set amongst five acres of private land. The open and airy home has four bedrooms with contemporary colorful interiors, well-loved by families thanks to its kayaks, bicycles, paddleboards, table tennis table and beach hammocks.

The Blue Sky Estate
Blue Sky is a spacious four-bedroom home featuring an open kitchen and living room area with panoramic views of the ocean. Meanwhile, best for design lovers is SeaVista. Set on the channel shore just a stone’s throw from the island’s natural aquarium, the villa features three beautifully appointed en-suite bedrooms, an expansive kitchen with a chef’s counter and bar, an open-air Great Room and a private dock for those arriving at the island on their boat.

Paradise, Protected
In a world where hidden gems are rare, Pine Cay stands out as the epitome of barefoot luxury, inviting travelers to embrace the warmth of the Caribbean sun and the serenity of an unspoiled private island.

Pine Cay operates with a conscience, placing sustainability and biodiversity preservation at its core. The island’s commitment to eco-friendly practices includes the prohibition of cars, the use of electric golf carts and bicycles, and the elimination of single-use plastics.

As today’s globetrotters seek authentic and off-the-beaten-path encounters and some of the world’s most exclusive properties, Pine Cay emerges as a covert treasure. To learn more about Pine Cay, visit PineCay.com.
