The Beaches Turks & Caicos Resort is closed until Dec. 14, due to damage from Hurricane Irma.

Parent company Sandals Resorts International will re-accommodate guests at its Beaches resorts in Jamaica or at any available Sandals resort.

Guests also can reschedule travel dates for after Beaches Turks & Caicos reopens.

"Our guest and our team are safe and well," said Butch Stewart, chairman and founder of Sandals Resorts International. "I am humbled by the spirit of community and cooperation that has brought this small but mighty country through the storm."

Several properties in Turks & Caicos were scheduled for annual closure prior to Irma; some have elected to remain closed to assess damage and plan to reopen in mid-October, including the Alexandra Resort, Beach House TCI, Blue Haven, La Vele, Tuscany and The Sands.

Properties currently open include The Palms Resort, the Shore Club and Seven Stars Resort.

Closed through September are Club Med, Windsong, the Regent Grand, Villa Community West Bay Club, and Grace Bay Club and its Private Villa Collection homes.

Reopening in October is the Gansevoort; reopening in November are Somerset, Royal West Indies and Parrot Cay.

The airport in Providenciales is open for scheduled flights.
