Turks & Caicos welcomes tourists after Hurricane Ike

September 18, 2008 -- The Turks & Caicos Islands Tourist Board is again welcoming travelers to Providenciales with the opening of Providenciales International Airport for unrestricted commercial flights. Impacted by Hurricane Ike, Providenciales is buzzing again as people return to normal, everyday life and tourists enjoy the island.

"More than 50 percent of our hotels are fully open and operational with the remaining hotels opening the first of October after they have completed their annual general maintenance," said Honorable Wayne Garland, executive chairman of the Turks & Caicos Tourist Board in a written statement.

Many of Providenciales' resorts are currently open to guests including The Somerset, The Tuscany, Club Med, The Regent Palms and The Sands on Grace Bay, and Seven Stars. Parrot Cay and Beaches will reopen on September 27. Grace Bay Club and Turks & Caicos Club will reopen on October 1 after regularly scheduled annual maintenance. Ocean Club Resort, Ocean Club West, Nikki Beach Hotel and Amanyara will reopen in the coming weeks after landscaping cleanup is complete.

I am so glad that the Turks and Caico re-opened. Hurricaines suck, I know I live in Louisiana. I wanted to take a moment to say how much I appreciated Premier Michael Misick for everything he did for me while my sisters and I enjoyed a stay at Palms. He is the one who made the Turks and Caico so VIP and who doesn't want to feel VIP going on a major Vacay? He is charismatic and charming most def, but, he has also worked hard to bring the Turks and Caico from being kind of unknown to being 2nd in jet set destinations. I wouldn't care to return had I know he was on his way out. I hope you do the smart thing and keep hiim there.
