Parrot Cay

The Parrot Cay Resort, a luxury, 56-room hotel, was built in 1992 on this 1,300-acre private island, but it only opened in December 1998. It has already attracted the rich and famous, with a guest list that includes Paul McCartney and Bruce Willis, and it is frequently featured in glossy magazines and TV travel shows. It has beautiful landscaping, the largest freshwater pool in the TCI, two restaurants, tennis courts, gym and offers all watersports.


The furniture is Indonesian, some of the staff are Asian and the food is Asian-influenced. You can have a Thai, Balinese or Swedish massage. Cotton used to be grown here and there are the remains of a plantation house. The wetlands and mangroves are to be preserved to protect wildlife. Rates start at US$460 in low season.
