Blue Haven Turks & Caicos is an upscale all-inclusive with its own IGY marina on Providenciales’ north-eastern, Leeward coast.
It is a small resort but has a range of spacious, luxury accommodation, a small beach and a spectacular infinity pool with a swim-up (and walk-up) bar is at its core.
Three restaurants and bars, a cafe, a small market, a spa and a fitness center round off the facilities plus you can enjoy a whole host of complimentary water-sports, and onshore: beach volleyball for example.
It is child friendly (and has a small kid’s club) but mainly sees adults, and is very much a place to relax and unwind.
It also attracts a well-heeled crowd, and feels more exclusive and sophisticated than most all-inclusives in the Caribbean.
Rooms & Suites:
Their accommodation is luxurious and far more spacious than most. It ranges from studios to two and three-bedroom apartments, with kitchens and living rooms, to sleep up to eight.
All are beautifully appointed with standard features that include sleek wood furniture pieces, king-size beds, satellite TVs (in all bedrooms too), mini fridge & bars, coffee makers, and luxury bathrooms.
The larger apartments have much the studios don’t have. Wrap-around balconies as standard for example plus large walk-in wardrobes, and in some cases full kitchens, with washing machines and dryers.
Their bathrooms too are a step up, some have jetted tubs, while the studios in all cases just have showers.
Our pick of the bunch at Blue Haven are the penthouses. Both are a similar size at over 3,000 square feet but one has three bedrooms and the other two bedrooms.
Both are gorgeous open and airy spaces with huge roof terraces that offer the best views in the resort.

Food, Facilities & Things to Do:
Fire and Ice is the resort’s main restaurant, right across from the pool and with views of Mangrove Cay.
It is a classy place with indoor and outdoor dining sections and serves buffet breakfasts and a la carte later in the day.
The food would best be described as Caribbean though with some international standards too. They do a strong line in seafood and the food overall is excellent.
Their next restaurant, Salt, has views of the marina and serves mainly Italian cuisine in a more relaxed atmosphere.
More relaxed still is Jammin’ By the Sea – an easygoing beachside grill featuring Turks & Caicos and Caribbean island fare.
Blue Haven is not a place for nightlife, but it does have bars. The swim-up pool bar is the place during the day, then the Ice Bar & Fire Lounge entertains guests around fire pits later in the evening.
The Elevate Spa is small but luxurious and offers a good range of treatments. The fitness center too is relatively small but still well equipped.
Blue Haven also has conference rooms and a business center.
It is an ideal resort for just lounging around and doing very little in but you can enjoy a game of beach volleyball plus complimentary water sports such as paddle boarding, kayaking, snorkeling etc. (motorized water-sports like jet-skiing have an extra charge, as does scuba diving and their, very enjoyable, semi-submarine rides)
The beach itself might be slightly disappointing–it’s relatively small and actually man-made–but the water is calm and incredibly inviting.
Blue Haven is on Leeward Channel, the main waterway between Provo and some of the lovely little cays off the island’s east coast.
The area is quiet and feels nicely secluded, with the nearest zone for shops and restaurants being Grace Bay about ten minutes away.
The TCI ferry port is a five-minute drive away while Providenciales International Airport is about twenty minutes.
Some Guest Reviews:
“Lovely staff in an intimate, secluded location. Nice and quiet with a private beach, swim-up bar and the best Mai Tai’s on the island made by Natalee!! Their sister resort we had access to was a nice offset on the days we wanted more crowd and activity…..”
“Exactly what we were looking for. Perfect for our family of five. Resort is quiet and relaxing. There are plenty of activities for the children. Kids club is small, but good. We chose to rent a car rather than take the shuttle and glad that we did. We’re typically not fans of all inclusive resorts, but this one was great. Food and drinks were good….”
