Parrot Cay Resort
- What's Included
- All Inclusive Features
I will start by saying simply that Parrot Cay is a gorgeous island among the Turks and Caicos Islands. The crystal blue water and pristine sand beaches truly make you feel like you are in paradise! COMO delivered every step of the way - even from landing at the airport! The team behind the desk that organizes transportation to and from COMO Parrot Cay from Provo airport was lovely, and we hadn't even gotten to the island yet! To this point, the overall service and staff at COMO is absolutely wonderful. Everyone is attentive, caring, and you are greeted with a smile at every turn. My husband and I were on our honeymoon so we stayed in a beach villa complete with a small heated plunge pool, 2 outdoor showers, and quite literally, our own beach. We also had the pleasure of spending time with the very sweet Ningsih, our "butler" who catered to our every last need. Meals at both Lotus and the Terrace were top notch and for being the only two places to eat on the island, we felt like we were eating a different restaurant with different cuisine every night. Italian, Asian fusion, Mediterranean, you name it. It was all fresh and delicious. We even went on a deep sea fishing trip one day and caught a black fin tuna and they cooked it for us that very night for dinner! On Friday night, a sunset cocktail party was organized and we were able to mingle with other guests and get to know the staff a little better as well. The resort is fairly quiet and doesn't get too crowded so this was a great way for a majority of the guests to be in one place at the same time for a little fun. Ningsih was not the only rockstar staff member who made our honeymoon the fantastic time it was - Dominic was always checking up on us to see how our day was going, if there was anything else he could do for us, etc. - a truly great guy. Dika, who helped us get set up at the pool, was so incredibly friendly and attentive. Before (and after!) dinner, we knew we had to get a drink or two so that we could hang with our man Treeco, a hardworking guy we so loved getting to know and having a few laughs with! They are the reasons we cannot wait to come back here! This place can't get much better but looking forward to seeing what the renovations in the fall will bring!Quick note: Use the bug spray!! :)
Simply put, our trip to Como Parrot Cay was a dream come true. Everything, from the accommodations, the location, the food, but mostly the service were absolute perfection! Everything was perfectly seamless from the moment we arrived in Providenciales - the arrangements to get to our boat transfer and the staff in Leeward, the wonderful greeting we received upon arrival, the attention to every detail that we could ever have imagined or couldn't possibly imagine. Our beach villa was beautifully appointed and had every possible comfort. We especially loved our own sitting area, plunge pool and direct beach access!Meals at Lotus and the Terrace were first rate, and we especially enjoyed themed dinners, which were done meticulously and flawlessly. The lengths that people went to ensure smooth transfers back to Provo and on excursions were extensive and very much appreciated. Perhaps the truest testimony to how much we enjoyed our trip was the utter sorrow we felt in having to leave!I would be remiss if we didn't point out some very special people that went well above and beyond any expectations we could possibly have, people who perhaps wanted us to have even more special a time than we imagined possible. In no particular order: Dika was extremely thoughtful and attentive to our needs at the pool. Everywhere we went, Dominic was always checking in to make sure we were having the time of our lives. Treeco made our evenings incredibly enjoyable with lively conversation, a laugh, a smile, and always made us feel like we had been and would be life long friends. And Ningsih, who was so sweet, kind, attentive, and was always there for everything we ever needed whenever we needed it. You made our trip absolutely perfect, the most glorious honeymoon imaginable. There aren't enough superlatives to express how much we loved Como Parrot Cay and the people who worked tirelessly to make our dreams come true. Thank you all so much!!!
I would like to start with a big thank you to one of the best leaders and his team out on the pool and beach- breakfast- diner!Dominic and his team made our stay magical!Special thanks to super Dika main pool attendant, he anticipated everyone needs making sure our water were full and even our sunglasses clean.We also had a great time with Harry-Tony-Jimmylee and a beautiful young talented girl from the island that I could not remember her name!Water sport were included and well managed by Restu, he helped me and my friends every time with a big smile on his face.Romi at the bar killed it every single afternoon, he's drinks were delicious- he's very polite-professional- friendly.Pande-Rickardus-Chapnut- and your friendly greeter at breakfast was the key to start the day with a big smile.The rooms are beautiful- the balcony and the views are spectacular.Friday's sunset cocktail reception was incredible-it was a great pleasure to meet all the team.Dominic and the rest of the team, thank you so much for sharing your beautiful place and taking such a great care of us!!Best regards,Rodrigo-Suzanne Falcon
There's lot to say about COMO Parrot Cay. The beaches are absolutely incredible and pristine. I could not get enough of the beach and the crystal blue waters. You start your vacation with a car ride to the marina. In about 20 minutes, you arrive at your private island. Although there was a fair amount of people at the resort, the beach was always pretty quiet. We experienced plenty of private sunsets often wondering where were the other guests. We stayed in a beach house, which as the name implies is on the beach. The beach is not exactly visible from the room - the high dunes block the view but it is a few steps away. The dunes aid in the privacy of your room – people on the beach are unable to see the houses. The beach houses have heated plunge pools, which is nice if you don't want to use the main pool of the resort. The rooms are a bit dated. The facility is undergoing renovations later this year. I do recommend using the bug spray included in the room anytime you’re outside, including outside meals – I waited too long to do so and suffered many bites. I really enjoyed all the food. Breakfast was included in the room rate. There were many options to choose from, including the Shambhala spa menu. Fresh juices were available daily as part of the breakfast menu. I loved the fish preparations. Many reviews called out the high prices. Unfortunately, that is true. The prices were equivalent to a metro / city like restaurants (i.e., NYC, Boston, San Francisco, London, etc.) including the drinks. Two cocktails cost $45 after the service charge and government tax. If you like to partake in a few drinks during your meals, then plan for the sticker shock. Even without drinks, meals will run between $100-$150 for lunch and >$200 for dinner. Most plates start at $20 with entrees closer to $50. Definitely budget for food and drinks here. We found some of the portions to be on the larger side so you may want to split entrees. Aside from the cost, the food was delicious. Service was great too. Some people mentioned long waits. I rather enjoyed the slower pace style since we were on vacation. The staff will be more than happy to accommodate the request to expedite service. Anything we asked of the staff, they happily delivered. We had a special birthday dinner set up in the room and we were not charged a set up fee and gifted a bottle of wine. We asked for some milk for our morning coffee and it was promptly delivered to our room. I enjoyed the focus on overall wellness. They had multiple and daily classes of Yoga, Meditation, Pilates, etc. which is included as part of the room rates. It was great to join in at different times of the day. The teachers adjusted for all “experience” levels. The spa was absolutely wonderful. The facilities could be enjoyed even without a spa service – this included the Jacuzzi, steam showers, quiet / reading area. The spa services were great – one of the best I've been to. We even took advantage of appointments with Dr. Parth. It was great to get personalized suggestions and insight on overall well-being. His unique perspective was very enlightening. I would recommend it to anyone struggling with health or stress issues. I loved our stay here and left with a new way of thinking and eating, feeling relaxed and refreshed.
I can't say enough wonderful things about this hotel. We have traveled the world and stay in luxury accommodations often, but this was my first experience at a luxury wellness resort. From the moment you walk out of airport customs to the time you leave, you are in their care. Every detail about the transfer is seamless. All of the following is included in your nightly rate: in-room wifi; pool wifi; cabanas at the pool; chairs/umbrella on the beach; ginger tea upon arrival, rum punch upon check in; sea kayaks; paddle boards; bikes; off shore snorkeling with masks/fins/snorkels; ceviche demonstration at the pool; Dr. Parth presentation at the pool; evening poolside reception with wine/beer/snacks; afternoon snacks on the beach including homemade popsicles, fresh oranges, and watermelon kebabs; and the best part is the amazing breakfast buffet and made-to-order menu with eggs, meats, cheeses, fruits, homemade juices, granola bar, baked goodies and more! We would load up at breakfast and take a bottle or two of juice to go (encouraged by staff) and have for lunch. We did not splurge on our room as we didn't plan to be in it so we went with the garden view room, pay 3 nights get 4 deal, and it was perfect. It's actually the same room size, decor, and location as the upgrade with the ocean view. All rooms are convenient to pool and beach. This Fall, they are planning to update the decor in the rooms and expand the pool bar deck closer to the water.Como owns and manages the whole island so you can bike and walk anywhere. There are 5 or 6 private estates that they also manage, and if you ask the staff, you can get private tours of the ones that are not in residence. We found out you could do this on our last day so we missed out but would have been fun. Private estate owners include Keith Richards, Bruce Willis, and Donna Karan. You can also rent them if you have the $$$$!The water is absolutely crystal clear. The island is surrounded by a reef about two football fields off shore creating a barrier of calm, crystal clear waters. You can literally walk about a football field out in the water and only be waist or chest deep. They are happy to arrange a staff member to take you snorkeling right off the beach on the reef with their small motor boat - masks, fins and snorkels provided. (No need to splurge on the $$$ excursions). Marine life was amazing. I found a conch that we brought back to shore, and they served it up for lunch as ceviche! (No extra charges for snorkeling or ceviche) They cleaned the shell for us too, and it's the best souvenier.I did two treatments at the spa. The first was the Como Shambhala massage with Pan, and it was the best I've ever had. From toes to scalp, it included reflexology and deep tissue using warm oil. The consultation with Dr. Parth was eye opening and so informative. He advised not to take notes as he would follow up with an email of the consultation. However the email only included diet recommendations to restore imbalances in your body. I definitely regret now not recording the in person consultation (and highly recommend it) as he covers so many valuable insights during the evaluation not included in the email follow up that I wish I could go back and listen to it. He also did a free presentation at the pool that covered most of the diet recommendations he emailed, so if you're curious you can go listen and get some helpful tips for free.There are two restaurants - a Mediterranean and an Asian. The best dinner by far was the BBQ night at the Asian restaurant. It was all you can eat stations that included salads (seaweed, pulled chicken); oysters; sushi; beef/chicken/fish satays; steamed veggie/pork/shrimp dumplings; duck or pork belly steamed buns; and at least 10 desserts of your choosing. They grow, use local farmers, or freshly catch their fruits, herbs, veggies, seafood, pork, chicken, eggs, etc. And if you can't eat everything on your plate, they package up the scraps and give them to the local pigs. Dinners are pricey especially with alcohol so expect $150-$200 per couple with tip.Lastly I cannot rave enough about the staff and their service. They are experienced from top of the line hotels - St. Regis, Ritz - and their service levels prove it. They are there to make sure you have a wonderful time and don't lift a finger.This resort is not big and we went during non-peak season so we got to know the few other guests who shared our time there and even exchanged emails with a few so we can keep in touch. I grew up traveling all over the Caribbean and live in the Southeast and cannot believe I didn't know about Parrot Cay before now. Thank goodness for Google. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet, luxury getaway and can't wait to go back!
