Parrot Cay Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
We traveled in April 2017 and booked two beach houses, each with one BR, but were upgraded to two beach houses each with 2 BR...and a butler! (Butlers come only with 2BR plus beach houses.) The facilities themselves were outstanding, with a view to creating the perfect balance between luxury (all needs met and then some) and an unpretentious laid-back vibe. The beach houses are the height of privacy, with dedicated pools, chairs and living areas, nicely insulated from surrounding properties (no wonder that celebs favor this place). The bar was great and the restaurants, while somewhat spotty, were remarkable considering that this private island, in an underpopulated archipelago, is not exactly the nexus of civilization. The butlers were unexpected. They are not only at your beck and call, they also serve as your waiters for all meals and your advance team/ombudsmen as needed (which is infrequent). The trick is to be unabashed about using them. Ours (a Hindu from Indonesia) not only met our every need but anticipated many; he even took our 12-year-old fishing one day, which was one of the high points of her trip. It's expensive....very expensive... but brings a level of luxury which is rarely matched elsewhere.
Parrot Cay is THE perfect vacation! Do not miss the spa and the amazing pilates class from Kira Lamb. Breakfast is included and the quality is outstanding. Food in general is better than in most hotels that you will find in the Caribbean. However, it is pricey. The beach is picture perfect and everything is organized really well. Lots of Europeans in the hotel and very cozy atmosphere. Would always go again and keep on recommending it to everybody who is interested in the perfect beach getaway. Dislike: - Diving is bad and very, very, very expensive (about 500 USD for 2 tanks). Not worth it and would recommend to change the provider or adjust prices. - Cocktails at the bar were not really good. Recommend to order beer or wine.
We booked last minute without even having the chance to research the resort . We only found out that we will be going to a semi remote private island by boat when we were being picked up at the airport :)))). Initially i sort of panicked , i don't really like being in a totally remote place especially when we have the kids with us . It turned out to be a godsend as we all needed 5 days of pure relaxation . We booked the 2 bedroom beach villa with pool . It's very spacious with a very well equipped kitchen and above all we got assigned a butler , the infamous Mrs.Zovia who gets things done tirelessly all day and night . The villa has definitely seen much better days , with very little work they can really make it look up to date and at $6k/ night i doubt they lack the funds to do so . The bedrooms and living room are adequate but the AC , bathrooms , kitchen and pool & deck could use serious sprucing up . There's nothing wrong with them but when competing with a Aman resort they sure have a tough adversary to live up to . Overall it feels just like home with good internet , tv with Netflix ( we discovered that literally the last night ) . The only thing missing is a washer and dryer but surprisingly laundry service is very reasonably priced . The resort has 2 restaurants , 1 Asian by the pool which is the popular one and 1 Italian in the main building which lacks total character and charm . The food is very good at both with the exception of BBQ night which was a total disaster . Room service menu is quite good also . The resort is very quiet with little to do , some non motorized beach activity and a superb gym . I didn't try The tennis courts but they didn't seem in great shape . The hotel provides bicycles to young and old which is a nice touch . We spent a lovely time not doing much except enjoy their gorgeous beach for 3 days and the serenity of our private pool . The last couple of days we went snorkeling , fishing and jet skiing . The few things i didn't enjoy is the lack of activities on the private island . Anything we wanted to do we either had to take a boat to another island or they'd bring the boat/jet ski at a very high price to the hotel . We chose the latter . A word of advice , bring everything you need with you . The hotel boutique has few incidentals but no great choice so make sure you pack very well . We had a great time . 5 days are just enough but the place really grows on you and we were all sad to leave . 1 more thing , their drinking water is undrinkable so we were always drinking the Evian bottles they left in the fridge . There are a number of villas owned by celebrities on the island , names like Bruce Willis , Donna Karan , Keith Richards .... I was surprised at the real estate prices though , a 3 bedroom villa up for sale for $10m . The while country is a very expensive destination , not for the faint hearted . We are talking Monaco prices but he beach is magnificent . Enjoy to the max if you make it .
The magically experience of Como Shambala Is that it is a perfected balence of Bali " eat love pray" and Helena Frith Powell's never ending search for beauty. I will recommend my opinion of the optimal way to arrange your spa experience at Parrot Cay. Como has gone to great lengths to hire well trained staff from some of the finest spa's on the planet--Chiva Som for example. As I am a bit of a spa junkie I am consumed with my experience at Como Shambala . In fact, this is the reason I choose to come to Parrot Cay in the first place. I have had the great privilege to spend time in Bali this is what I would use as a comparison. The spa at here is degrees superior to the one in Bali much closer to " The Scared River Spa" at the Four Seasons in Syian near Ubud which has master the art of pampering to an ethereal level. One floats out of the treatment. Back to the Carribean. As I am relaxing reading my "candy book" by Hellena Frith Powell which I love by the way; I am dreaming of what it would be like to have her job going around the world doing a deep dive into the world of love, sex, eternal youth. My first stop is the Como Spa. Ok here is what to do! The day you arrive arrange to have the Como Shambala bath just the classic-- it Will wash civilIzation off and cleanse. If this is not a rebirth of sort there is something you need to take a serious look at inside. It does not disappoint after the beautiful boat ride through blue water you will be transported To more pure relaxed version of yourself. The next day I would start with a visit to the smiling Dr. Parth. Have this appointment as early in you visit as possible you will not want to miss all of the treasures this wise man has to offer. He is the "wise man" of Como Shambala. Dr. Parth loved my smile and kind eyes and noted that my mind may be like a fish. How true this was and funny. Along with other suggestions which I continue at home he is insightful. Next have a facial. A dear friend says the Dr. H classic is the best and I would agree. Her skin glows like a baby. Also, while you are there have the Como Shambala menu and coconut water it is as expensive as a cocktail but amazingly this is all I want when I visit Parrot Cay. Oh one last suggestion-- call ahead to book your treatment. The staff is amazing at accommodating their guests. I am a little uptight so like to plan. Remember Invigerate oil to smell the essence of Como Shambala when you return to the mainland where ever that may be.
This place was an assault on my senses. It was paradise, simply heaven on earth. They had the friendliest staff and the restaurants were amazing. We never had a bad meal. The head of the spa was so gracious by giving us a tour. This place is the best place to unwind and get in touch with your soul
