The Turks & Caicos Collection’s all-suites beachfront escape, the Alexandra Resort, recently completed a property-upgrades program and has added a new dining spot, Asú on the Beach, as of November 1.
The Alexandra Resort will open a new beachfront restaurant in early October.
The restaurant will be called Asú on the beach. The name means sunset in Taino, the language spoken by the Arawak Indians who lived in Turks and Caicos centuries ago.
There are a few really popular restaurants in Turks and Caicos that get booked up early and require reservations. We are not going to name any names in this article, but we have mentioned some of them before. If you want to make sure you have reservations for that must visit restaurant, you probably need to start calling or sending emails a few weeks before your trip directly to that restaurant. This will help you get in to all the restaurants of your choosing on your vacation.
Let’s be really clear. It is very likely that everything is more expensive on Turks and Caicos than it is wherever you are from especially if you are from the United States. Grocery store prices are no exception. The prices are expensive not because every restaurant and grocery store on the island are trying to price gouge you, it is because everything has to be shipped in to these tiny islands. The shipping is also in relatively small amounts for these grocery stores which drives the price up even more.
Anyone who has had the pleasure to visit or is planning to visit Turks and Caicos knows the number one attraction is the beach. After the beach, the number two attraction has to be the food and dining. There are plenty of choices for dining after your day in the sun from casual to fine dining and from on the beach to near the shops. Almost all of the options will have an open-air island vibe that is exactly what you would expect on an island vacation.
