IHG makes Turks and Caicos debut

IHG has made a triple signing in Turks and Caicos

IHG Hotels & Resorts is set to make its Turks and Caicos debut after announcing new signings across its fast-growing global luxury and lifestyle collection.

The hotel company has partnered with Molo Hotel Group and the UK-based Lighthouse Hotel Management to open three new resorts on Grace Bay on the north coast of the island of Providenciales by 2027. The move is part of IHG’s long-term plan to expand its portfolio in the Americas, the company said.

All properties will be designed by Glasgow-based architecture and interior design studio Ica, in collaboration with Turks and Caicos’ Conservative Architecture and Miami landscapers EDSA.

The InterContinental Turks & Caicos is the first property on the list, offering just 59 seaview suites across a seven-storey new build. Guests can expect a ground floor restaurant and bar, as well as a pool, fitness center and signature Club InterContinental lounge.

The news of the luxury brand’s arrival in the country comes after IHG’s publication of the Americas InterContinental Development Brochure, which confirmed plans to increase its collection of 43 properties in the region to 55.

The InterContinental Turks & Caicos will be neighbored by Kimpton Turks & Caicos, a luxury boutique hotel with 192 rooms and seven dining options, including a beachfront restaurant and a rooftop bar. There will also be three outdoor pools, a spa and a fitness center, while other highlights include free bicycle hire, in-room yoga mats and pet-friendly policies.

Guests will also be able to avail of the Kimpton’s ‘Forgot It? We’ve Got It!’ program, which provides necessities (think phone chargers and toothbrushes) for travelers who’ve forgotten to pack them.

IHG will also open its first Hotel Indigo on the islands, as part of its plans to open 155 branches of its ‘Neighborhood Hotel’ brand worldwide. Located close to the InterContinental and Kimpton resorts, Hotel Indigo Turks & Caicos will have 56 guest rooms across one new building and two existing structures. The property will also have an outdoor pool and fitness room, as well as a restaurant, bar and cafe.

IHG’s latest investment in the Americas, comes after the company revealed that the region accounted for 12% of its 2023 signings.

“We believe these developments will not only bolster our tourism sector, but also significantly contribute to the overall wellbeing of our society,” said Angela Musgrove, chief executive of Invest Turks and Caicos (Invest TCI). “Attracting such investment to the islands is essential for enhancing the economy and fostering the growth of local enterprises through affiliations with the resorts.”

“Moreover, it will strengthen the educational opportunities for the local population through the close relationships and programs which have been established with the Turks and Caicos Islands Community College. Invest TCI is pleased to work with Molo to ensure we collaborate with stakeholders so the maximum impact of the development can be felt within the community,” he added.
