COMO PARROT CAY

From its personalised service and sophisticated cuisine to its distinctive design and island beach, our Turks and Caicos luxury resort works hard to tailor the experience to your needs. This is because we know that everyone has a different idea of what a beach holiday should comprise.

COMO Parrot Cay is a Caribbean private island 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.

Like much of the Caribbean, the Turks and Caicos have become a year-round destination, the climate oft described as ‘perpetual June’. The nights are so clear that the quarter moon casts a shadow and, with no light pollution, a full moon can light up the landscape. In an average year, the islands enjoy 350 days of sunshine.

At COMO Parrot Cay, our Turks and Caicos island hotel finds the ideal balance between a relaxed, beach house aesthetic and a soothing contemporary style. Keith Hobbs oversaw the light-filled look of COMO Parrot Cay. Combining the colonial and contemporary, Keith created whitewashed interiors furnished with soft, white, cotton-covered chairs, and teak furnishings.
