There are 72 light-filled rooms, suites, and villas at this British West Indies hideout.
Turks and Caicos already has a certain cachet among Caribbean destinations, but COMO Parrot Cay, set on its own 1,000-acre island with a mile-long beach, puts it over the top. Overseen by London-based United Design Partnership, Providenciales-based Rothermel Cooke Smith, and Singapore and Bali-based Area Designs, there are 72 light-filled rooms, suites, and villas at this British West Indies hideout. Four-poster beds are draped in ethereal white voile, Colonial-style fans whir above, and fresh air is savored on private sundecks and verandas. In some, French doors open to wooden balconies with nap-inducing daybeds; in others there are outdoor garden showers and heated plunge pools. For large posses in search of escape, a beach house nestled in the sand dunes, complete with 24-hour butler service, is a sumptuous alternative. The spa, spread out in low-lying pavilions facing the North Caicos Channel, is an ideal setting for Asian-inspired holistic treatments. Sitting by the pool and eating at Lotus is an equally transcendent follow-up.
