Parrot Cay Day Pass

Gurvy Travel would highly recommend taking advantage of a Day Trip to the private and exclusive Parrot Cay Island.  Once you visit this award winning luxury resort you will definitely make it a part of your stay for your next visit to Turks and Caicos.  You will be taken in with the quiet and relaxation that awaits you, perfect way to get away from everyday life. You will begin your journey to the island cruising along the turquoise waters for a thirty-minute boat transfer. Parrot Cay staff will meet you once you arrive on property and whisk you off for a 10-minute golf cart ride through the beautiful property. You will then check-in at the front lobby, and begin to enjoy your day.

This was truly a highlight of my trip this last summer! The tranquility, the personalized service, sophisticated cuisine, and everything the resort had to offered made for an amazing day–I didn’t want to leave.

Parrot Cay and COMO Shambhala Retreat is one the northern Caribbean’s pre-eminent private islands. According to legend, Parrot Cay, Turks and Caicos, was originally named Pirate Cay, as it was the hideaway for the female pirate Anne Bonny during the 1720s. But now, Parrot Cay is a privately owned, 1,000-acre/405-hectare island and home to the exclusive five-star Parrot Cay & Como Shambhala Retreat (part of the COMO Hotels and Resorts group). It is wrapped in sweeps of sand and peaceful seas featuring the region’s best spa and cuisine.

Much of the isle remains undeveloped: scrub-covered and fringed on the ocean side by talcum sands shelving into waters of Maxfield Parrish turquoise blues and greens, while mangroves and wetlands to the windward side offer great birding opportunities. As the only lodging on the island, this is the Turks’ most celebrated and well-known luxury hotel. Honeymooners intermingle inconspicuously with the well-heeled, many of whom have flown in on their own private plane and transferred to the Cay via jet boat. All guests are met at the dock from their Provo transfer with a cocktail and chilled towel.

Here on this 1,000 acre private island retreat you may choose from 70 unique rooms consisting of suites, villas and private residences decorated in under- stated elegance. The property features a 5,500 square foot infinity-edge pool as well as tennis courts and a yoga pavilion. The COMO Shambhala Spa features 9 treatment rooms. Top rated yoga instructors, wellness specialist, Asian trained therapists, and Ayurvedic doctor can create bespoke programs for the guests.

Special candlelit dinners are arranged in one of the private Shambhala cottages, strewn with flower petals and popular with honeymooners. Packages including meals or spa treatments are highly recommended. Clients must be ambulatory, as the terrain is hilly, and the resort offers no transportation.

The fitness center is air conditioned, and a water sports center supplies Hobie Cats, canoes, windsurfing and snorkeling equipment. Other amenities include floodlit tennis courts, a nature trail and boat excursions.

Standard Terrace rooms come with garden or ocean views. Decor is a blaze of clinical whites and offers a warm contemporary plantation feel with glazed teak floors and sisal throw rugs. They have sliding walls of glass opening to spacious balconies, plus shuttered windows, Bose alarm clocks and 24-inch flat-screen TVs with DVD players.

Furnished minimally with Indonesian teak pieces, all units have four-poster beds wrapped in whirls of muslin mosquito netting and the finest cotton linens. All units have ceiling fans and air-conditioning, safes, hair dryers, minibars, tea/coffeemakers, direct-dial phones, safes, and terraces or patios.

Baths have tubs and separate showers, vanities with spa toiletries, lush robes and flip-flops. Terraces have a cushioned sofa and daybed and a teak table and chairs. Thoughtful extras include umbrellas, complimentary flip-flops and even a yoga mat by request. There are six adjoining units in the mix.

The resort’s spacious one-bedroom beach house and six one- to three-bedroom villas have vaulted wood ceilings, wooden floors, full kitchens, plunge pools and screened porches facing the beach. They also benefit from private swimming pools. Separate from the main complex, Parrot Cay Estates offers additional privately owned villas with personal butlers.
