For crystal-clear snorkelling and white sand beaches, stay at one of these first-rate Caribbean hotels in the Turks and Caicos Islands.

The archipelago of 40 low-lying coral islands in the Atlantic Ocean has a markedly different feel from its Caribbean neighbours. So far, it has escaped the attention of developers and mass tourism alike – that’s great news for you. This British Overseas Territory has eight main islands, wondrous wild beaches, colonial architecture, national parks, and incredible marine life from rare turtles to humpback whales, and a varied array of places to stay. Here’s our guide.

The Tuscany on Grace Bay, Providenciales

Grace Bay Beach looks impossible; the water photoshopped, the sand too white. Named the best beach in the world several times over, it’s a mirage of a place that can’t be real, and yet here it is. So, if you stick to the pool at the luxury Tuscany resort, we are judging you. Described as 30 “condominium residences”, each has a kitchen with state-of-the-art stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and marble flooring throughout. There’s no restaurant, but you can pre-order a fully-stocked kitchen ready for your arrival.

Villa Renaissance, Providenciales

Intended to resemble the grand villas of the Italian Riviera (the clue’s in the name), the Renaissance also fronts Grace Bay Beach. The mosaic pool is beautiful, we agree, but get in that sea. We implore you. There are 28 one-, two-, three- and seven-bedroom beachfront suites and eight poolside suites. Again, it’s self-catered, but there is a bar serving food – jump on one of the free bicycles if you need to pop out to the shops. To make use of the tennis courts, you won’t need to bring or rent a racquet; it’s provided. A mobile spa service does in-room treatments.

The Venetian on Grace Bay, Providenciales

A theme is emerging. All suites at the Venetian – traditionally decorated, and with hints of blue to bring the outside in – offer oceanfront views of Grace Bay Beach. They have a full-kitchen and laundry appliances, with cleaning products provided. That’s not sexy, but when you’re travelling, it’s mighty useful. A nice touch too is the free cell phone you’re handed on arrival, pre-loaded with useful numbers. You may be self-catered, but you’re not left to fend for yourself.

Sibonné Beach Hotel, Providenciales

A bit of a shift from the big condo-hotels that line Grace Bay, the Sibonné is a resort for those that don’t much like resorts. It’s low-rise, not over-polished, and slightly old-fashioned in the best possible way. Quaint, you might say. It may be in need of a little updating, but that means it’s a great value option in an unbeatable location. There’s a freshwater pool, restaurant and bar. Rooms either overlook the garden, ocean, or if you slant your head and look through the trellis that divides you and your neighbours balcony, a partial ocean view.

    Just a two-minute walk from the beach, this 16-suite boutique hotel has an overriding air of calm. There’s high speed internet by the pool, an un-serviced bar equipped with a communal Weber grill for guests to use throughout their stay. In short, the pace is up to you. Well-appointed, even the lowest room category, a double room has a Nespresso machine, microwave, mini-fridge and private patio. Suites, ranging from one- to three-bedroom have a full-size kitchen, dishwasher and laundry. Put those car keys down; with shops, bars and restaurants a short walk away, you won’t need them.

    This all-suite resort has three different “zones”: an adults-only section (phew); the family-friendly Villa Suites; and a luxury resort-within-a-resort, the Estate. Each has its own pool, however the Estate also has its own exclusive restaurant and bar. When it comes to eating, you’ve a choice of seven bars, restaurants, and snack stops, but the oceanfront Infiniti Restaurant & Raw Bar has perhaps the most exciting menu, with conch fritters, and Mahi Mahi Ceviche with sweet potato, tiger’s milk, and blue corn tostada. Find a cosy spot, on the outdoor couches or around one of the fire pits at night, and relax.

    Caribbean Sea Breeze Villas, Providenciales

    The three-mile stretch of Long Bay Beach on the southeast side of Providenciales is a popular yet still quiet and tranquil spot. With that swimming pool blue water, how could it not be? But it’s the constant southeasterly trade winds that make it a hotspot for kiteboarding. The three managed villas are at the edge of the dunes, making an easy place to stay if you’re here to take to the water. Family-friendly, they can sleep up to four. The decor is slightly old-fashioned but homely. With not much foot traffic at this part of the beach, it feels immensely private.

    Sunflower Oasis, Grand Turk

    Despite the giant cruise ships that dock at the island, Grand Turk still feels like a step back in time. Head to the main settlement, Cockburn Town, and you won’t have to wait long until you see wild horses and donkeys roaming the streets. To the north, you’ll find the four self-contained studio suites located at Pillory Beach, each with a full kitchen and French doors that open onto the private courtyard and pool. The beach here varies a bit: some sections have a clean sandy bottom; other areas are rocky. Grab some shade under a Casuarina tree.
