Blue Haven Resort in Providenciales, Turks and Caicos Islands
Opened in 2013, Blue Haven Resort is the first resort on the far north end of the Turks and Caicos. It’s a far cry from the all-inclusives on Grace Bay – the resort is sleek and colorful and boasts an outstanding restaurant, yet it’s friendly to guests seeking self-sufficiency. Suites are outfitted with stainless steel Sub Zero and Thermador appliances, and a full marina invites commissioned boat rides to surrounding islands.
Swim up to the bar at the edge of an oceanside infinity pool. So what if the morning sun is still overhead? A tart concoction of Bombay gin, cucumber juice, limes and prosecco is refreshing any time of day. In the afternoon, gallop on horseback along the shoreline of a deserted beach. Dine on Dover sole in lemon consommé, and take desert in the lounge – let the flames of the fire pit warm a dish butterscotch bread pudding topped with ice cream.

Reviews for Blue Haven Resort
It is hard to put into words how great it was staying at the Blue Haven Resort. They went out of their way to take care of us. We had a snorkeling trip planned that fell through but desk staff called another snorkeling group and got us a spot. They were always very helpful at the desk and was always willing to help us out.
We were supposed to catch a sunset sail from here just ended up hanging out at the marina here. Very nice spot to hang out. Lot of boats to see. Restaurants. Photogenic area. They also have wifi across the marina
I really cannot speak highly enough for this absolute gem of a resort. From the moment we arrived and were handed a delicious rum punch (fruit punch for the kids) we knew that we'd be looked after and we were not at all disappointed with the impeccable and friendly service we received from Sharick and his team. Our stunning corner sea view apartment was beyond words, a luxurious home away from home where we quickly settled in to Caribbean life. We had a perfect view of the marina and the man made beach and couldnt have wished for a better appointed accommodation. Its the little things that mean the most sometimes and the very fact that ALL the staff members knew our names and addressed our son directly by his christian name made us feel like part of the family...although i very important member of the family i have to say. This resort is a little off the beaten track but in a good way. We travelled to TCI at the end of May which is off season but that just made our trip even more special. There isnt really much to do after dark but as we had our 9 year old son with us it didnt really bother us that much. We just crammed our days with adventure. We especially loved Kayaking across to the mangroves where there's an abundance of marine life to see, if you're patient enough. We were lucky enough to see baby sharks, turtles and quite a lot of one of the Islands delicacies - the humble Conch. If you want to stay at a place that you'll remember forever then you wont get batter than the Blue Haven.

Blue Haven is a beautiful resort and yachting center. Lovely accommodations and appointments, friendly staff. Horizon pool with swim-up bar, beach area with floating trampoline for the kids young and old, market across the circle for goodies during your stay. As boaters we are very impressed with the world class facilities, you will not be disappointed.
We traveled here in May, which is headed into the off season, so the island in general was very quiet. We split our stay between Blue Haven and a resort in Grace Bay, and it's tough not to compare the two (but I'm going to do my best!). Blue Haven is all the way on the east side of the island, separate from almost every other hotel. This gives it a different feel which is nice, but also a bit isolating. We arrived around noon and were told to wait until 2pm for our rooms to be ready. We checked at 2 and 2:30, and were finally given keys around 2:45. We were also outfitted with these unfortunate wristbands that they insist upon for all their guests. This immediately makes you feel like youâ€™re at some cheap all-inclusive, rather than a high end resort. Completely unnecessary and they would get tight when they got wet. We carried our bags up to our room ourselves (only one person working reception and we didnâ€™t expect him to leave), which honestly wasnâ€™t a big deal, but again, didnâ€™t exactly exude high-end accommodations. The resort has a man-made private beach with a trampoline which my husband enjoyed, but the water has a lot of reeds growing in it so I didn't spend a lot of time there. Luckily I got my fill of the beach at our first resort. We mostly stuck to the pool/swim-up bar, which is beautiful and their bar staff is great (very nice and friendly). In the evening the resort was dead. There is nothing to do there. Maybe that's different during peak season, since they do have couches with fire pits ready for use, but while we were there it was eerily quiet. I would venture to guess that because Blue Haven is so far from everything else, not a lot of people from elsewhere on the island bother making the trip out to their restaurant (Fire & Ice) to eat. Everyone we met while staying there was also headed elsewhere for dinner, so the resort appeared deserted from 5pm on. We similarly made reservations off-site for our dinners, which is another problem with Blue Haven's location - you run up insane cab bills. Unlike the Grace Bay resorts which are walking distance to town and many restaurants, you're forced to take a cab from Blue Haven, and they aren't cheap (minimum of $15 to go about 3 miles into town each way, some farther restaurants we paid $30 each way). We ate breakfast and lunch on site a few times. Breakfast was included, and itâ€™s pretty standard (I know I said I wouldnâ€™t, but if one were to draw comparisons to our other hotel, Blue Havenâ€™s breakfast was severely lacking). Oddly they hand you a bill at the end of breakfast, but the waiter confirmed it wouldnâ€™t actually be billed to us. The only reason I could think for them to hand you a bill rather than just confirm your room number is so the waiter gets tipped on this imaginary $50 price tag ($20 per breakfast plus tax). Pretty ridiculous considering all they do is get you coffee and the rest of the meal is a buffet. It doesnâ€™t leave you with a very positive perception of an already mediocre meal. We also ate at the Salt Bar & Grill one day and ordered snacks from the pool bar (which is also from the Salt Bar & Grill menu). Both meals were fine (fish tacos were good, fish sandwich was okay). On a positive note, we booked a one bedroom suite and it was stunning. A gorgeous room with more amenities than you could ever need. Also, the view of the marina is amazing, and we loved walking around checking out the yachts. I took a nap in the hammocks one day which is a nice bonus to their beach, and the pool set up is quite picturesque. Plus, we stocked up on rum and juice from their market across the street which was pricey, but convenient (and not as pricey as buying all those drinks!). Since we split our time in T&C with a resort in Grace Bay, I wasn't nearly as bothered by the downsides of this hotel. We enjoyed our time there and I liked that it was a change of scenery. Plus the water looked even bluer than Grace Bay â€“ it really was quite pretty. I would probably recommend Blue Haven if you're looking at staying in two places on the island. It has a unique vibe and offers something different from the other hotels, however, if this had been our only destination I would have been disappointed. Plus, with all the money you spend on cab fare you can easily bake that into your budget and get a higher end hotel near town that will really feel like a five star experience.
