Sorry for the Billy Ocean earworm, but word on the streets (OK, our email inboxes) is that Hyatt is now in sales mode for its new Andaz Turks and Caicos Residents at Grace Bay.
Although the Caribbean development won’t open until next year, the five-and-a-half acre oceanfront property sits on Grace Bay Beach, and it’s anticipated that units will go fast.
How fast? Let’s talk about the limited collection of penthouse lofts. There are currently a mere three (THREE) available that our source says “are truly an unparalleled offering that hasn’t existed until now.”
From their perches on the seventh floor atop the Andaz Hotel, each penthouse loft has ocean-facing views, 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows, and sliding glass doors.
Francisco Jove of Modus Operandi opted for interior design that married a casual Caribbean-style with chic, modern lines, including custom millwork, Spanish porcelain tile floors, solid wood doors, and brushed stainless steel hardware.
Each one bedroom, one bath loft has 1,281 square feet of luxury living space, with an additional 700-square feet of outdoor space that includes a private rooftop complete (accessible from a circular staircase on the balcony off of each master bedroom) with a lounging area, plunge pool, wet bar, and entertainment center.
But if you miss out on the limited lofts, have no fear — the entire resort has 59 hotel rooms, and a total of 74 for-sale residences.
And it’s also pretty darn easy to get to Turks and Caicos — American flies nonstop from Dallas, United flies non-stop from Houston, and there are several connecting flights through Miami. Another bonus? The archipelago has no property tax, no income tax, no capital gains tax and uses the U.S. dollar as currency.
The penthouse lofts are priced at $1,295,000. Residences range from $450,000 to $6.8 million. To check out more of the development, click here.
