Turks and Caicos is a Caribbean archipelago that boasts some of the most magnificent beaches in the world. It’s long been popular with the well-heeled, but in recent years, it’s become a little more accessible to those looking to redeem travel rewards for hotel stays, as chains have opened a few hotels across the nation’s islands.

Marriott, which opened The Ritz-Carlton, Turks and Caicos, a few years ago, is expanding in Turks once again with the upcoming Salterra, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, slated to open early next year on the island of South Caicos — here’s what you need to know about this exciting new Marriott property!

Marriott’s Bringing the Luxury Collection to Turks and Caicos

Situated on South Caicos Island, Salterra, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Turks & Caicos, is not a newly constructed resort. According to One Mile at a Time, Marriott took over the former East Bay Resort and has been renovating it to transform it into Salterra, which will open in February 2025.

The property is going to be fairly small, with just 100 rooms. There will be plenty to do, though, as it will feature 6 places to eat and drink, a spa, a fitness center, an oceanfront pool, and direct access to the beach from the property.

How To Book Salterra, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Turks & Caicos

Salterra participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program, and you can book stays for February 15, 2025, and beyond.

Cash rates at Salterra start from $915 per night in early April 2025 but can reach over $1,300 per night on specific dates. If you prefer to redeem Marriott Bonvoy points for a stay, you can expect to pay at least 132,000 per night.

We value Marriott Bonvoy points at 0.7 cents apiece, which means you can get solid value from your points, especially if you take advantage of Marriott Bonvoy’s fifth-night free perk when paying for stays with points.

If your points balance is looking low, rest assured that it’s fairly easy to earn Marriott Bonvoy points. You can transfer American Express Membership RewardsBilt Rewards, and Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Marriott at a 1:1 ratio or open one of the best Marriott Bonvoy credit cards. These cards all come with sizable welcome bonuses and some form of Marriott Bonvoy elite status.

Final Thoughts

Turks and Caicos continues to become a better destination for award travelers, as more and more points options seem to open up every year.

If a visit to the more remote South Caicos Island is on your radar, the opening of Salterra, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Turks & Caicos, should be music to your ears!
