Our Vision

We’d like to thank you for your interest in visiting One On Marlin. The staff and I have brought our hopes and creativity together to make this a special location in the heart of Sacred Valley in the Turks and Caicos Islands. We hope you’ll find it’s the tropical paradise we – and you – have imagined.

The location is made up of comfortable, modern accommodations strategically placed on an infinity loop. We’ve embedded the buildings in this marine tropical forest to ensure you have an opportunity to experience nature up close. You can expect to see hummingbirds, butterflies and other fauna during your stay, perhaps even one of the newest species of hummingbird recently identified that is endemic to the Turks and Caicos.

We consider getting closer to nature a very important aspect of staying on these pristine islands. We want you to achieve a greater understanding of this environment and your part in it, and get a feel for the place, people and culture while you’re here.

Fruit trees, plants and fauna natural to the tropics surround you at One On Marlin, so you can expect to find fresh papaya and ripe bananas leaning over your patio deck if your timing is right. As well, we’ve added pomegranate, avocado and other trees that are adapting well to the soil conditions. Jake, our staff botanist, has worked with staff to bring out the best and most beautiful in the land. The fruits of our work are all around you here.


Important to the atmosphere is the gentle music that you can hear as you walk throughout the valley. Our guests continuously ask for a playlist and say it’s one of the most relaxing things they’ve ever heard. It’s low and unobtrusive, and we believe it fits into the environment. We hope you’ll like it too.

Most importantly, we’d like you to feel as though you have a chance to get back to the things that are most important to you while you’re at One On Marlin. That varies depending on the person. Many guests tell us they leave feeling relaxed, refreshed and at one with themselves, their partner, or the world. Others say that here they had an opportunity to get back to what’s really important to them.

Service, of course, is also high on our list of priorities. We want you to feel as though you’ve had a chance to let someone else take care of the details. We’re happy to help, so feel free to ask if there’s anything you need, whether it be advice on a daytrip, how to book a massage therapy or yoga session, or how to get fresh fruit on the site.

We’re not quite finished. We have big plans for One On Marlin and continue to add elements of fire and water, trails for hiking around the valley, and special gathering points for you to sit and chat about your adventures at the end of the day. A pool is planned and a raw food lounge. Additional suites are also in the works, and all construction is done in low season or while guests are off having adventures, so your stay is as peaceful as it should be.

We look forward to seeing you here and to sharing what we believe is the unique nature of this location. Feel free to get in touch with us here if you have any questions or to book a reservation.

Warm island regards,

Kelly Sullivan
