COMO Parrot Cay, Turks & Caicos
With an average of 350 days sunshine a year, a Turks & Caicos holiday is perfect for sun-worshipping holidaymakers. Considered to be part of the Caribbean, this string of over forty low-lying islands (of which only eight are inhabited) actually lies in the Atlantic Ocean just south of the Bahamas. A destination for visitors who value beaches and sea over lush, mountainous landscapes, the islands are largely flat and covered with scrub vegetation, although what the Turks & Caicos lack in foliage, they make up for with idyllic white sand beaches and crystal clear ocean.
COMO Parrot Cay
To further enhance the sublime location, the range of rooms, beach houses and villas on offer is equally superb. With just 72 in total including the uber-exclusive Parrot Cay Estates, this is a place of unobtrusive luxury. Rooms are generous is size with sleek, stylish furniture, vast four poster beds swathed in voile and private verandas or sun decks. Expect a calming palate of colours with cream, ivory, pale blue and terracotta featuring strongly; thisis effortless glamour. We highly recommend the One Bedroom Beach Houses which are just steps from the perfect white sand and offer separate living and sleeping areas, as well as a heated plunge pool on your private deck.
When it comes to dining, the bounty of seafood on the doorstep plays a starring role. The poolside Lotus restaurant features fresh Caribbean and Asian flavours or for a more formal elegant feel, The Terrace serves sophisticated Mediterranean dishes. The COMO Shambhala cuisine follows a wellness theme and is exceptionally popular. Private beach picnics, tiki hut dinners and in-room dining are also available.
COMO Shambhala Retreat is set in low-lying pavilions overlooking the North Caicos Channel and the surrounding wetlands, offering a wide range of holistic and Asian inspired treatments. Yoga and Pilates claim an integral role at COMO Parrot Cay and complimentary classes are held six days per week, as well as private tuition. Those looking for meditation can learn about the healing powers of Pranayama, a deep yoga breathing technique.
The calm waters are heaven-sent for superb water sports and there is an excellent non-motorised water sports programme. The snorkelling is just breath-taking and the dive sites are among the best to be found in the Caribbean. If getting sand in your shoes is not your thing then don’t worry, the dazzling infinity edge pool is equally divine and surrounded by shady day bed pavilions with a picture-perfect view over the beach.
Private dining possibilities are endless – enjoy a castaway style picnic in the beachfront Tiki Hut or an intimate dinner on your private veranda.
The One Bedroom COMO Suites offer the ultimate in space. These lovely suites feature a separate bedroom and living room as well as two bathrooms and are ideal for families with young children (two children under 12 stay free of charge when sharing a suite).
For friends or family travelling together, we highly recommend COMO Parrot Cay’s Two and Three Bedroom Beach Villas. These private sanctuaries come with fully equipped kitchens, heated swimming pools and private butler service! Larger accommodation are within Parrot Cay Estates, a collection of privately owned villas and houses, located a short buggy drive from the main resort area offering private villa living within easy access to all resort facilities
