This was a beautiful resort on a private island. From the moment you land in Provo, you know that Parrot Cay is something special. You are shuttled via air conditioned van to the private dock. There, you are met with beverages and a glimpse of the amazing hospitality that is to come. After the boat shuttle, you "check in" on a couch in the beautiful Balinese-style lobby with a glass of champagne. The activities are yoga, pilates, tennis, kayaking, sailing, and working out. There are two restuarants with WORLD-CLASS food! The service is relaxed but fantastic. The rooms are beautifully appointed, with fresh fruit and water daily, as well as a bottle of champagne on arrival. They are not opulent, but more beach/cottage style. The spa has an amazing view, and the services (massage/facial) are the best I've ever had. The beaches are unspoiled and gorgeous. This is the only resort on the island, other than private (movie and rock star) homes.
This is a perfect place for adults to relax, be romantic, recharge, and be pampered, with privacy. It is NOT (in my opinion) a place for older children or teens, as they will be bored. It it also not a place for those seeking Carribean thrills like jet-skiing and parasailing. (One father of teens was dumbfounded and dismayed to find that these activities did not exist at the resort. He may have been in for a long week.) Diving and snorkling can be arranged through Big Blue Unlimited or other companies, but you have to pay a big premium to have them pick you up on Parrot Cay. We did not leave the island for 5 days, but a day trip to Provo can break up the quiet time. For us, it was just what we needed!
