Olly’s Hotel Review: Parrot Cay – Turks and Caicos

PARROT CAY (COMO HOTELS)
While it’s still -14 degrees outside here in Switzerland, I got a bit heat-sick and decided to write a review on a past experience. Before Milly and Olly was running, one summer I travelled all the way to Turks and Caicos for about 10 days as an escape from London’s weather. Even if arriving there was a bit of a mission, once you get to the Parrot Cay hotel, you can forget all your worries and finally relax. We did experience a minor glitch at the beginning, when we were shown our terrace room that gave onto a bunch of tall palm trees and was supposed to be a “sea view room”, complaining does get you a long way, so we were swiftly moved to a real “sea view room”. Apart from that our experience was lovely, the white sandy beach with the turquoise water was just like paradise, the Como Shambhala spa retreat was fantastic, I have never experience such a great head massage as there, and the surrounding settings of the spa will leave you with your mouth wide open, stunning. The restaurants: Lotus (pool side, light carribean dishes but also Shambhala healthy meals) and Terrace were delicious. The service was quite good, I say quite because I didn’t feel much love from the reception as you usually do in hotels of this level, but the rest were really helpful and super friendly. I strongly recommend this to all of you wanting a white sandy beach experience but keeping it refined.
Style: Quiet Caribbean Spa retreat
Hotel Philosophy: “Think of it in simple terms: a place to rediscover those forgotten rhythms of long days, easy nights, and the salve of peace”
