Discover pristine Caribbean perfection at Amanyara, Turks & Caicos charm at Grace Bay Club and the ultimate Caribbean private island in Parrot Cay by COMO.
An enchanting and virtually unspoilt Caribbean enclave, the Turks & Caicos islands are an escapist's paradise. A string of over 40 coral atolls each encircled by brilliant white sands which fuse with warm turquoise waters create a diver's bliss. Admire some of the world's largest coral reefs, with over 250 miles to explore whilst gliding amongst turtles and delicate seahorses.
With only eight of the breathtakingly pretty cays inhabited, this is a true chance to discover an abundance of untouched natural beauty. Charter a sailing boat for the day and hop from island to island - the perfect opportunity to distinguish their distinct personalities and the unique experiences on offer at each.
Arrive on Providenciales and stay in one of the most exclusive resorts in the Caribbean - Amanyara. Derived from the Sanskrit word aman meaning 'peace' and yara meaning 'place' - this secluded hotel is hidden away on the western shore; a 'peaceful place' indeed.
Thirty eight timber-shingled guest pavilions are nestled amongst luscious green foliage, dotted along the coast. Designed by Jean-Michel Gathy, the Belgian architect merged indoor and outdoor spaces by using floor-to-ceiling sliding-glass doors that make it possible to open the pavilion on three sides, allowing wonderful views of the ocean and beyond.
Set on icing sugar sands adjacent to the pristine reefs of Northwest Point Marine National Park, Amanyara is a premier destination for beach and watersports enthusiasts. Try your hand at paddle boarding or learn more about the unparalleled marine environment of the Turks & Caicos islands in the National Discovery Centre.
The resort boasts a mouth-watering menu which blends classic Asian and modern Mediterranean dishes. Enjoy these specialities dining al fresco. Alternatively, sample the island's culinary delights and head to Lower Bight Road on a Thursday evening for the weekly Fish Fry. Mingle with the locals and enjoy fresh seafood, rum punch and live music and entertainment.
