The exclusive Meridian Club edges a two-mile beach on an 800-acre privately owned island named Pine Cay, between Providenciales and North Caicos. The remote, almost isolated, atmosphere promotes relaxation: no cars, no TV, no phones are permitted, no shoes are needed, and no children under 12 are permitted (except during the "family months" of June and July). Guests may stay in one of a dozen dune-side suites (the resort also features a honeymoon cottage and several privately-owned rental homes), each with ceiling fans, large windows, a screened-in deck, and separate bedrooms. The waters off Pine Cay area are renowned for bonefishing and reef fishing, and guests can also arrange active pursuits like sailing trips, snorkeling and scuba excursions, and even golf outings to one of the nearby islands through the resort’s main office.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
