Our favourite rooms

The prospect of waking up with her head on Bruce Willis’ pillow has always appealed to Mrs Smith; Mr Smith would settle for Christie Brinkley’s – at Como Parrot Cay, you can do both, by renting one of the celebrity-owned, butler-equipped Parrot Cay Estates. The hotel’s less stalkerish lodgings in the main resort are no less glamour-drenched: white-draped four-posters, Balinese-style furniture, private sun-decks, and a peace-inducing palette of cream, terracotta, powder blue and beech wood. The six one-bedroom Beach Houses have cooling plunge pools on their hardwood verandas.


Surrounded by white-cushioned loungers, lush vegetation and shady daybed pavilions, Parrot Cay’s breath-nabbing infinity pool is a vast shimmering square overlooking the boats perched on the beachfront.

Packing tips

Loose clothing for yoga and Pilates (but leave your mat at home – the hotel have several to loan); tennis shoes for bashing about on the courts; super-sized sunglasses for surreptitious celeb-spotting.


As well as indulging in the spa’s blend of Thai, Indonesian, Ayurvedic, and hot-stone massages and treatments, you can also book an ‘intuitive counsellor’ to give you semi-psychic guidance. The spa also serves a mean ginger tea.


Under-12s can stay free, and babysitting can be arranged for $10 an hour.

Hotel Restaurant

The poolside Lotus Restaurant serves light dishes and Caribbean-inspired lunches during the day, turning into a Southeast Asian fusion eaterie by night. The octagonal Terrace Restaurant is more formal, with an Italian-leaning Mediterranean menu.

Hotel Bar

There are bars beside each of the restaurants. The signature Parrot Cay Lemon cocktail is a moreish mish-mash of lemon, lime, vodka and triple sec.

Last orders

Both restaurants stop serving at 9.30pm, but food can be served in your room until 10pm. The bars keep the cocktails shaking until the last guest leaves.

Room service

Snacks and meals can be served in rooms from 7am to 10.30pm.

Private island’s mile-long beach

Como Parrot Cay

PO Box 164, Turks & Caicos

Set on a private island in the Turks and Caicos archipelago, Como Parrot Cay is a secluded tropical escape easily accessed from both Providenciales and Grand Turk.


Providenciales Airport is the main gateway to the Turks and Caicos. It has services from London Heathrow via the Bahamas with British Airways and via Miami or New York with American Airlines. Hotel staff will meet you at the airport and drive you the 15 minutes to Leewood Marina, where you’ll catch a boat for the 35-minute trip to Parrot Cay.


The hotel sits on a private island, so you won’t need a car for most of your stay. If you want some wheels for a day trip, the concierge is happy to arrange some for you.


Note that the 50-minute car-and-boat return transfer costs US$168 a room, each stay. Should you want a private speedboat transfer between Providenciales and Parrot Cay, for up to 16 people, the hotel can happily arrange that for a fee.

Como Parrot Cay

Anonymous review by Kirsten Orchard, Master marketer

Thank goodness for stylish Caribbean boutique resort Como Parrot Cay in the Turks & Caicos. It’s the second week of our honeymoon, and both Mr Smith and I feel that we need to start taking things up a notch or two on the indulgent-luxury scale. We’d spent the first week of our married life at the sort of earnest US wellness spa that had us exercising at dawn, abstaining at lunchtime and getting pummeled by masseuses’ meaty hands by sundown. Indeed, all this had made us so tired that we’d been crawling into bed by 9pm most nights – and not even in a good, newlywed sort of way.

We flew into main island Providenciales, just an hour’s flight from Miami, where we were met at the airport and transferred to a speedboat, along with two other couples, for the 40-minute trip across the water to the glamorous private island. It was late when we arrived and pitch-black; the water was restless, our stomachs churned and we all looked expectantly into the darkness, keen to be delivered onto dry land. Once safely disembarked, each couple was met by a member of staff on a buggy and whisked off to their room.

We were staying in a waterside villa, with direct access to the beach, our own plunge pool and a veranda. The beach house itself boasted a large, vaulted, whitewashed sitting room and kitchen with sliding double doors opening onto the bedroom. Inside, an airy four-poster teak bed with billowing white linen added to the romantic vibe. Leading off the bedroom, Mr Smith and I discovered the bathroom, complete with luxe power shower, a generous bath, double washbasins and plenty of high-end Como Shambhala toiletries.

A welcoming bottle of champagne sat invitingly on a tray in the sitting room, alongside some homemade canapés and a tempting bowl of fruit. Mr Smith and I looked at each other excitedly, then cracked open the fizz, wolfed down the salmon blinis and jumped on the bed. Week one was totally forgotten. This is how honeymoons are meant to be.

Still hungry, we ventured out to the poolside restaurant and bar, where we arrived to find the kitchen closed but the bar luckily still open. Small and cosy, the arched space offered both great sea views and comfy sofas for couples and friends to while away the night. The cocktail list was comprehensive and the service impeccable. High on the buzz of this ultra-cool yet super-relaxed hangout, Mr Smith and I enjoyed a spot of people-watching, listened to some live guitar music and looked out contentedly onto the wonderfully lit infinity pool and dark sea beyond. It was a real wow moment and the perfect introduction to the island.

I was awoken from my reverie by a nudge from Mr Smith. ‘Darling, have you seen who’s standing next to you?’ he whispered excitedly. It was film star Bruce Willis, barefooted and smaller than I had imagined. Mr Smith, however, was gazing at the diminutive action hero with awe. ‘He’s done more for bald men than any man alive,’ my shaven-headed husband muttered excitedly, as his eyes followed Bruce’s every move around the bar area.

The next morning we began our day with a revitalising yoga class before an even more satisfying breakfast served in the Terrace Room (yoga and Pilates classes, held in Parrot Cay’s exemplary Como Shambala spa, are free for guests). On the way back we spotted the gym, a detached wooden dwelling between the main hotel and the beach villas. We peeked inside, looked at the person running on the treadmill, then turned to each other and simultaneously hissed ‘Noel Gallagher!’ before quickly shutting the doors again. Ho hum. Another day, another celebrity sighting.

Lunch revealed yet another; actress Liv Tyler, her son Milo and musician Royston Langdon, who were all staying with Bruce. A-list celebs aside, though, we found our fellow guests to be interesting, intelligent, successful, easy-going people. We found ourselves meeting many of them over the next week and spent almost every evening at the bar, talking and drinking late into the night.

The food at Parrot Cay is as excellent as the company, but it doesn’t come cheap. You’re on a private island, so the hotel’s clientele are a totally captive audience food-wise – there’s not even a supermarket on the island, and there’s no possibility of eating outside the resort’s own restaurants unless you intend to chew sand. Luckily, the Asian- and Caribbean-inspired cuisine at the poolside Lotus restaurant, where Mr Smith and I ate all of our lunches and dinners, was absolutely superb.

On our last day, Mr Smith and I decided to treat ourselves to a massage – traditional Thai for him, satisfying deep-tissue for me – in the new purpose-built Como Shambhala spa. As honeymooners, I thought it’d be a good idea to have the massages in the same room. After all, I didn’t want him to get carried away and start asking his masseuse for ‘extras’. I’m so pleased we did – if we’d opted for separate studios, I’d have never witnessed the hilarious spectacle of my betrothed squealing like a girl as his new nemesis, a five-foot Thai lady, eased the last few stress knots from his shoulders.

We loved Como Parrot Cay. We found this private-island resort to be faultless and a welcome relief from the self-consciously stuffy ambience that you find in many of the world’s grand hotels. And half the world’s A-list, it seems, agrees with us. Bruce Willis even owns his own villa on the resort, and comes back time and time again. Old habits die hard, I guess.

We loved

The peaceful environment, beautiful scenery, amazing spa, wonderful and thoughtful service by the staff at Como, and we especially loved the Smith perks that came with our booking. 10/10

Don’t expect

A loud or busy nightlife at this hotel since it really emphasizes R&R with minimal to none distractions. Unless you're staying at least a week, it would be time consuming to travel to the mainland for the day or two.

The service. They truly take care of your every need. Food was superb. Very inventive, fresh and delicious.

Don’t expect

A wild nightlife. This is a quiet place.

Stayed on

We loved

The privacy of the island and the ability to participate in so many activities: tennis, biking, hiking, pilates, yoga, paddle board, etc. Beach is terrific, staff was great and breakfast amazing. Be sure to explore other parts of the island and beaches in the nature reserve. 10/10

Don’t expect

Big nightlife. Quiet bar and billiards are the only option.

Rating: 10/10 stars


Stayed on no

We loved

The beach front villas and the service are what sets this place apart from the rest. The Areyevedic influence is well researched and presented and the spa, yoga and treatment rooms create the perfect oasis and location of a spa getway.

Don’t expect

The regular or base rooms are exactly that, basic. Clean yet, very simple and a little dates and a bit of a distance from the ocean front, although there is still a view of it. The evenings don't offer much in terms of entertainment or vibe, so it's very quiet and people turn in early.

Rating: 8/10 stars

The hotel was so tranquil and relaxing – it was like being on your own private island. The free yoga and Pilates classes were great too! This resort is the perfect escape to renew and refresh your body and mind!
