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.
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’s range of rooms, suites and villas boast maximised natural light, creating sun-filled spaces facing the sea or the island’s lawned landscape. Our villas and houses have their own private pools, and many have direct beach access as well as the 24-hour services of COMO’s acclaimed butlers.
DINING AND CUISINE
Offering some of the most varied dining in the Turks and Caicos, our menus draw from the Caribbean’s rich seafood larder while emphasising all that is fresh, local and organic wherever possible.
Our relaxed poolside Lotus restaurant serves light Caribbean-inspired dishes during the day and contemporary Asian at night, while the Terrace restaurant specialises in modern Mediterranean.
Our delicious and nutritious COMO Shambhala Cuisine, meanwhile, maximises energy and wellbeing, and our extensive room service menus let you enjoy meals in complete privacy with beach picnics, tiki hut dinners and poolside meals at your villa.
Lotus has an easy-going style that belies the sophistication of its cuisine, securing its reputation as one of the top restaurants in the Turks and Caicos.
At this al fresco poolside spot, guests come and go in beach gear, stopping in for light Caribbean-inflected lunchtime fare during the day, and contemporary Thai- and Japanese-inspired Asian dishes at night.
Terrace is a light-drenched space, specialising in modern Italian inspired fare. This indoor and al fresco restaurant affords views over the island and ocean, offering a sophisticated yet laid-back venue for breakfast or dinner.
In the morning, guests can choose from a large selection of homemade pastries and juices, or from the à la carte menu with healthy options from COMO Shambhala. At night, our mixologists will prepare inventive cocktails to enjoy before a Italian feast.
COMO BEACH CLUB
COMO Beach Club at COMO Parrot Cay offers a laid back decking space overlooking a curl of white sand on the main beach. It presents a more relaxed alternative to the resort’s other dining venues, while retaining the same pin-sharp service and stylish design found throughout the island.
Guests can enjoy light Caribbean bites from our snack menu and fresh, beach-inspired cocktails by day. After sunset, the ambience switches to a more vibrant soundtrack, complimented by sultry “after dark” cocktails prepared by our island mixologist.

Ayurveda means ‘the science or knowledge of life’ and is an ancient system of Indian holistic healthcare.
Ayurvedic wellness programmes aim to restore the body to a natural state of equilibrium by rectifying imbalances in the body’s three doshas — vata, pitta and kapha — that make up the body’s constitution. Benefits include weight loss, stress relief and detoxification.
Wherever our Ayurvedic therapies are available, we also provide an Ayurvedic Doctor to prescribe the most appropriate treatments. He or she will also add nutritionist support in personalised eating plans. We recommend a minimum of three treatments for optimal results.
Parrot Cay is a secluded private island in the Turks and Caicos, an island chain in the relatively undeveloped Northern Caribbean. The island’s 1,000 acres include pristine white beaches and the opportunity to experience first-hand the rhythms of the natural world with no cars, pollution or streetlights.
Parrot Cay’s location in the archipelago also makes it well placed to explore the Turks and Caicos Islands in their entirety, while its safe, private locale makes COMO Parrot Cay very appealing to families.
Young guests are also encouraged to enjoy COMO’s signature service, design, cuisine and approach to wellness, through Play by COMO.
