Making a difference in Turks and Caicos

Support The Somerset Staff

While The Somerset on Grace Bay was built to hurricane standards, most of our staff’s island homes unfortunately were not. Due to the hurricanes, every employee’s house experienced some form of damage, ranging from flooding to total destruction.

The wonderful Somerset team has always been there to help create treasured times, and we now have the opportunity to be there for them.
