COMO Parrot Cay is an award-winning Caribbean private island luxury resort in the Turks and Caicos—an archipelago of eight principal islands and more than 40 smaller cays, of which Parrot Cay is one. Rich in hidden coves, pristine beaches and reefs, the islands are positioned some 925 kilometres southeast of Miami.

All rooms, suites and beach villas have soothing interiors along with COMO’s service ethic, holistic therapies, yoga, diving and worldclass cuisine.

COMO Parrot Cay’s range of rooms, suites and villas boast maximised natural light, creating sun-filled spaces facing the sea or the island’s lawned landscape. Our villas and houses have their own private pools, and many have direct beach access as well as the 24-hour services of COMO’s acclaimed butlers.

Offering some of the most varied dining in the Turks and Caicos, COMO Parrot Cay’s menus draw from the Caribbean’s rich seafood larder while emphasising all that is fresh, local and organic wherever possible. The relaxed poolside Lotus restaurant serves light Caribbean-inspired dishes during the day and contemporary Asian at night, while the Terrace restaurant specialises in modern Mediterranean. COMO Beach Club, adjacent to Lotus, offers Caribbean classic cocktails during the day and a lively atmosphere by night, featuring their mixologists’ specials. Their delicious and nutritious COMO Shambhala Cuisine, meanwhile, maximises energy and wellbeing, and our extensive room service menus let you enjoy meals in complete privacy with beach picnics, tiki hut dinners and poolside meals at your villa.

This is a place to practice yoga with the world’s leading teachers or simply take advantage of COMO Shambhala’s extensive retreat facilities. COMO Shambhala has nine treatment rooms including a private cottage and pavilions with Japanese baths, meditation and consultation huts, showers and changing areas, spa infinity-edge pool and sundeck with outdoor shower, private yoga studio and yoga pavilion, private Pilates studio, outdoor Jacuzzis and Asian-inspired holistic therapies developed by COMO Shambhala, including reflexology, Ayurveda (an Ayurvedic consultant is on site), massage and facials.

Play by COMO delivers personalised family experiences at COMO Parrot Cay. More than just a children’s space, Play by COMO ensures that the whole family, even our youngest guests, enjoy COMO’s signature service, design, cuisine and approach to wellness. Children are encouraged to enjoy purposeful and creative play, both at the dedicated Play by COMO space, and around the island – under careful supervision of our child-care experts. The thoughtfully planned schedule has been designed to inspire children aged four to 12 with activities that capture their imagination through history, nature, local culture and science.

COMO Hotels and Resorts act as custodians, rather than managers, of each destination. They recognise the privileges and responsibilities of being part of the community and are committed to celebrating local culture, supporting the domestic economy and minimising their impact on the environment. At COMO Parrot Cay, they are passionate about preserving the island’s natural habitat and allowing the island’s rich ecosystem to thrive. Approximately 85 per cent of the 1.000-acre island has been retained as marine wetlands and mangroves to provide a pristine habitat for the native wildlife, including Great Egrets, Brown Pelicans and Brown Anoles. At COMO Parrot Cay, they have their own coconut grove and banana farm which supply the kitchens with fresh produce. Not only does this mean they have access to the finest local ingredients, but it also ensures that these native species are protected. Freshly caught fish from the surrounding Carribean sea is also delivered daily and features across all of the menus.
