A new luxury Marriott property is expected to open in Turks & Caicos in 2025, and it has the potential to make for a great getaway.

Marriott Luxury Collection coming to Turks & Caicos
Salterra, a Marriott Luxury Collection property, is expected to open in early 2025. The property is located in Turks & Caicos, and specifically, is situated on South Caicos Island. This isn’t a new build, but rather represents a renovation of the former East Bay Resort.
Salterra is expected to feature 100 keys, so it won’t be a mega-resort. The property is expected to have six food & beverage outlets, ranging from a fine dining restaurant, to a casual restaurant, to a grab-and-go eatery, and more. The resort will also feature a spa with eight treatment rooms, a gym, a large pool area, and direct beach access.
While many people visiting Turks & Caicos fly into Providenciales (PLS) and then stay on the famous Grace Bay Beach, this offers a different experience. Visiting this resort will require flying into South Caicos Airport (XSC), which is just a short 20-minute flight from Providenciales.
The Turks & Caicos points hotel scene is improving
Turks & Caicos is absolutely beautiful, and it’s an easy getaway from the United States, given how close it is to Florida. Historically, the country hasn’t had that many points hotels, though that’s slowly starting to change.
A while back we saw the opening of the Ritz-Carlton Turks & Caicos. It has an amazing location on Grace Bay Beach and the grounds of the property are beautiful, but it otherwise doesn’t feel very luxurious.
Now we’re seeing the opening of a Marriott Luxury Collection property, which is great for those who want a bit more secluded of a trip, since South Caicos Island should be a bit less crowded than the area around Providenciales.
On top of that, the Andaz Turks & Caicos is expected to open in late 2025, and will feature 59 hotel rooms and 74 residences, also directly on Grace Bay Beach. It’s nice to see Hyatt expanding to Turks & Caicos.
Salterra Turks & Caicos is expected to open in early 2025, and will be a Marriott Luxury Collection property. This represents a rebranding of the former East Bay Resort. The resort will feature 100 rooms, and will be located on South Caicos Island, so it won’t have the typical Grace Bay Beach vibe. I’m looking forward to checking out this property.
What do you make of Marriott’s new Salterra property?
