About The Palms Turks and Caicos
The Palms fronts the white sand beaches of Grace Bay, a glorious jewel set amid 12 acres of fragrant, landscaped gardens. Its five buildings form a semi-circle around a multi-million dollar infinity pool, and the pool setting boasts a swim-up bar and restaurant.
Not to be overshadowed by the impressive colonial lodging structures is The Palms’ 25,000 square-foot-spa, complete with reflecting pools and serene gardens, and featuring a long canal that fans out into eight coral-stone fronds, each housing a treatment room.
The inspiration for The Palms comes from the designs of Oliver Messel, who, in the early ’60’s was noted for his use of the materials and traditions of island architecture on his adopted island of Barbados. Messel created a mix of baroque and classical design using features such as slender Greek columns, flattened arches, and white-on-white interiors.
The Palms pays homage to Messel with its use of cool Barbadian coral stone in its five buildings, the incorporation of open, island-inspired architecture, and by naming its magnificent ballroom after him.
