Partners Beyond Project Completion

The Hartling Group is recognized as the Turks & Caicos Islands' luxury development company. Propelled by the success of its prior projects - the idyllic The Sands at Grace Bay resort and the graceful five star The Palms Turks & Caicos resort - The Hartling Group also has the distinction of being one of the few development companies in the Caribbean offering unparalleled, post-project-completion management to its range of services.

A team of handpicked professionals, each with successful track records in their respective fields, complements The Hartling Group's corporate philosophy by providing vital support services such as revenue management, financial and accounting reporting, design and support services, and internal marketing.

The positive results of this unconventional business model are evident. Each project continues to receive a stream of international accolades lauding the unique and culturally significant architectural and design elements, as well as the hands-on marketing and business management of the resorts.

Uncompromising Performance

The Hartling Group's project development successes are due to its unwavering commitment to the following mandate:

  • Complete construction to rigorous and exacting standards.
  • Create a new benchmark for future development projects in the Turks & Caicos Islands with each project completed.
  • Demonstrate an all-encompassing development philosophy that transcends basic construction to include management and operational services.
  • Bring expertise in management and operation services to future development projects.

Past Projects


Stan Hartling, founder and CEO of The Hartling Group, embarked on his development career in 1989 when he joined The Barrian Group as Partner and Director of Operations. The Barrian Group, based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, was a developer of retail shopping malls, residential sub-divisions, large-scale storage facilities and multi-unit residential projects.

Six years later, in 1995, when the Barrian Group liquidated most of its completed projects, Stan decided to explore development and management opportunities in international markets. That decision led him to the Turks & Caicos Islands where he continues to promote his rare development philosophy.
