How does one describe a stay at the exclusive and secluded resort COMO Parrot Cay? Pure Caribbean bliss! I was fortunate enough to visit with my family a few months ago to see for myself and clients just what this special place is all about. To say that it lived up to high expectations is putting it mildly!
Located just a few minutes’ boat ride from Providenciales (the most visited of the Turks & Caicos Islands), Parrot Cay feels a world away and offers privacy, tranquility, and lots of space – coveted attributes in a resort we’ve been seeking more than ever since Covid descended upon the world.
Upon arrival in Provo (common nickname for the island of Providenciales), we were whisked away by a COMO Parrot Cay representative to their private lounge and dock to await our boat ride to paradise. Champagne and snacks awaited, and before we knew it, my family was checked into our home for the next week and swimming in our pool overlooking the ocean.
There are a number of different accommodation types for guests to choose from, much of the decision dependent upon whether you’re visiting as a couple of family. My family of four booking a Two Bedroom Beachfront Villa with a private pool steps from the beach. This particular category comes with 24/7 butler service as part of the nightly room rate. Our butler was so warm and attentive that I had tears in my eyes saying good-bye to him on our day of departure. He thought of anything and everything we did not, even arranging a bonfire and s’mores one evening on the beach.
Please note that butler service can be added as an extra charge to the One Bedroom Beachfront Villas. And if you’re not booked in one of the villa categories, never fear, because service throughout the resort is stellar! Many of the staff hail from countries known for delivering world-class service such as Indonesia and receive top-notch training from COMO.
For those of you not familiar with the COMO chain of hotels, they’re a small collection of unique properties around the world with a focus on wellness, cuisine, and service. Many are found in Asia, and COMO Parrot Cay is the chain’s only Caribbean property.
“COMO is dedicated to creating extraordinary experiences for curious people with a passion for a life fully lived. Our properties draw inspiration from their compelling locations. Nurture mind-body wellness, as well as world-class cuisine and exacting service. None of our hotels are the same, thought our values are consistent – belief in responsible living and the memorable power of meaningful experiences.” COMO Luxury Hotel Group
I would be remiss not to mention the over-the-top stellar spa COMO Shambala, a signature feature of any COMO hotel. From beginning to end, my spa experience was flawless. COMO hotels take great pride in their wellness and spa facilities, which are a cornerstone of the brand across all their properties.
Between outstanding food and service, as well as gorgeous accommodations and a breathtaking beach, COMO Parrot Car is truly that one in a million property. My host agency has a preferred relationship with the hotel, so Katherine Gould Travel clients receive the following complimentary amenities:
