Eye on the World: Parrot Cay, Turks & Caicos

written by | Posted on June 18th, 2013

Recommend’s publisher and editorial director, Lorri Robbins, recently stayed at Parrot Cay by COMO, the private island resort in the Turks & Caicos. While there, she made the resort’s 1-bedroom Beach House (highly recommended) her home-away-from-home and indulged in onsite amenities such as the COMO Shambhala spa, yoga classes, and the seemingly secluded beach and turquoise ocean…. Here are a few images of what she refers to as the “ultimate in understated luxury resort life.”
