Parrot Cay – Turks & Caicos


Among all the beauty that the Archipelago of Turks and Caicos has to offer, Parrot Cay embodies the most elegant blend of uncanny beauty and luxury.  Let the experience begin with a 35-minute speedboat ride from Providenciales, crossing nothing but perfectly warm turquoise water and views of deserted powder-white sand beaches on the horizon. Amidst the splendor of gorgeous greeneries and flourishing hibiscus, the proud staff at Parrot Cay greet you with champagne and luscious local cocktails. Such a welcoming at this white-washed sanctuary of colonial style villas with coral pink roofing sets a balanced tone of replenishment in refined, yet understated luxury. All the more a perfect way to eventually consider those beach-oriented activities such as hobie cat, Catamaran sailing, snorkeling, and much, much more! Hours embracing the clear waters of the ocean front shouldn’t keep you from one more swim in the majestic 5,500 square foot infinity pool, admiring the scenic sunset on the cay.

When it comes to food, Parrot Cay is a true gourmet experience. It all starts with a perfect breakfast of pastries, eggs, exotic fruit blends and so much more, followed in the afternoon by the ceremony of the high tea and its freshly made cakes served in the library. As for dinner time (poolside mind you), “Lotus” restaurant offers a variety of delicious Indonesian dishes and cocktails. If in the mood for a new level of healthy treats, guests can also taste the COMO Shambala cuisine designed to maximize energy and wellbeing with the use of raw food rich in living enzymes, vitamins and sea minerals.

Asian based spa therapy and well as yoga, pilates and wellbeing related treatments are also available to complete your wellness program at the private resort.
