At Turks and Caicos, you can cross all those items off your wish list. We’ve put together a list of our three favorite hotels in Turks and Caicos to save you the research. Consider it a starting point as you plan your Caribbean vacation.
Welcome to Parrot Cay: the secluded and exclusive private-island hideaway. Located on an almost inaccessible 1,000-acre island in the Turks and Caicos, Parrot Cay is sophisticated in its simplicity and radiates an aura of casual elegance. Designed in a natural blend of traditional colonial décor and Asian minimalism, the 72-room resort succeeds in being both romantic and soothing. A fifteen-minute cab ride from the airport on Provo takes you to Parrot Cay’s private dock, where you’re greeted with a chilled face towel and cold drink before being whisked 35 minutes over the smooth, translucent waters to the private resort. Here, you’re picked up by a stretch golf cart (there are no cars on the island) and taken to your suite where you instantly feel you’ve made the perfect decision.
The main building is sited at the top of a 50-foot rise (the highest point on the island) and the two-story, red-tile-roof buildings that house Parrot Cay’s luxurious suites and villas cascade down the hill to the beach – a 3.2-mile-long ribbon of powdery white-sand bordered by crystalline azure waters. Along the beach you’ll find the one- and two-bedroom suites, most with private pools and direct access to the beach. The expansive Infinity Pool overlooks the ocean and the daybeds invite relaxation, bliss, and beauty. The wooden Tiki Huts can be used for simple lounging or as the venue for a romantic private dinner.
Life on Parrot Cay is as you please. Go diving or snorkelling in the stunning coral reef, windsurfing and kayaking, or deep-sea fishing to try and haul in a marlin. Relax on the beach, lounge by the pool, pamper yourself in the spa. Or indulge in food and drink – the restaurants are amazing and serve incredibly fresh and delicious seafood, as well as a health-focused menu with raw foods and vegetarian focus. Lotus is the poolside restaurant and bar – only steps from the water’s edge – serving a light-fare at lunch and Southeast Asian cuisine for dinner, while the Terrace serves excellent Italian-inspired Mediterranean cuisine. The food is another welcome addition to the vividly sensational experience of Parrot Cay.
A stunning place to see and be seen, Parrot Cay is the epitome of Caribbean luxury and relaxation. The important thing at Parrot Cay is to BE. The rest is up to you.
