We wanted our property to make a mark, but not leave a mark. UXUE is timeless in its sculptural aesthetic, luxurious in the quality of its materials and extravagant in its private access to one of the world’s finest kiteboarding playgrounds.

A stunning six-bedroom luxury development on Providenciales’ beautiful Long Bay Beach is nearly complete. With its opening, the vacation house will be the most unique and beautiful new addition to the high-end Turks & Caicos accommodations scene.

TCI-based developer TDMG and London-based architects Blee Halligan have combined to create UXUE (pronounced ooh-SHOO-eh)—West Indies Refuge, Ocean Playground.

Situated on the beach, meters from the ocean, the property is scheduled for launch in November 2019 when it will be managed and marketed exclusively by TDMG’s sister company, TKCA Vacation Rentals.

The project marks the first time the design, build and management of a luxury home have all been considered together, providing the optimal vacation accommodation and investment property.

Architect Blee Halligan’s goal was to design a property that responded to the coastal conditions of the site, putting guests in close contact with the natural beauty of the local marine environment. The owners placed great importance on the house’s ability to blend into its unique and cherished natural surroundings, making as little impact as possible on the flora and fauna that are native to the island habitat.

The property’s design responds to the protected primary dune system by positioning two courtyard bedrooms behind the dunes, with kitchen, living and four further bedrooms on the lee side. A number of sheltered outdoor spaces within staggered, groyne-like walls, offer further protection from the elements whilst also framing wide views out to sea.

Blee Haligan stated, “The impressive site inspired us to create a residence that is in close proximity to the unique environment of Long Bay, and the specific qualities of this coastal dune. UXUE makes an impression, rather than an impact; architecturally, that was key to us and to the owners.”

TKCA commented, “UXUE sets a new standard in luxury villa rentals in the Turks and Caicos Islands. We are very proud to be part of the team making this dream a reality and look forward to welcoming guests.”

Long Bay Beach is renowned as a kiteboarding paradise with pristine, powder soft sand leading to the expansive shallow reef of the Caicos Bank, blessed by steady winds throughout the year and vast turquoise seas. A major bonus will be the ability for guests at UXUE to launch their kites directly from the property’s beach.

The owners of UXUE, both avid kiteboarders, said, “We wanted our property to make a mark, but not leave a mark. UXUE is timeless in its sculptural aesthetic, luxurious in the quality of its materials and extravagant in its private access to one of the world’s finest kiteboarding playgrounds.”
