Many honeymoon couples dream of escaping to a private island paradise, where soft golden sands and warm island breezes blow all their cares away. Where luxurious furnishings frame picture-perfect water views, and friendly staff take care of every need imaginable. Our clients Peyton and Taylor recently made that dream a reality, with a honeymoon stay at Parrot Cay Resort Turks and Caicos. A few days in paradise at this intimate, ultra-romantic location was the perfect way to start their new lives together!
Read on for a recap of the couple’s private island stay, and learn why Turks and Caicos is the ultimate destination for sun and sand lovers:
Laidback Luxury at Parrot Cay Resort Turks and Caicos
Parrot Cay Resort Turks and Caicos is not like your typical Caribbean resort. It’s nestled on a private island, fronting some of the most beautiful beach in the region. If you’re seeking peace and quiet on your romantic escape, this is where you want to be.
And that’s exactly why Peyton and Taylor chose Parrot Cay.
“When talking with Mike at Southern Travel Agency, we discussed how we wanted somewhere laidback, not an all-inclusive,” said Peyton. “Mike steered us toward Parrot Cay because it was more private and quiet. The hardest thing we had to do once we arrived was figure out if we wanted to head to the beach or the pool!”

Fine furnishings and beautifully landscaped grounds give this resort its luxurious edge. Freshly renovated, the resort rooms provide incredible views out over the blue-green waters — a true feast for the eyes. No doubt about it, Parrot Cay is among the best resorts in Turks and Caicos.
But what really puts the luxury over the top is the service, said Peyton.
“As soon as you arrive at the airport, you’re greeted at the Parrot Cay kiosk, then you’re taken by private car to the dock and take a private ferry to the island,” he explained. “At the resort, we were always greeted by name. We never had to pick up our own bags. The service was excellent all around.”
Plenty to Do at Parrot Cay Resort Turks and Caicos
Despite the intimate atmosphere, there’s never a dull moment at Parrot Cay. You get to choose from plenty of activities (many included at no additional cost) — or you can choose to simply hang out and soak in the Caribbean’s world-famous rays.
The resort’s bevy of activities pleasantly surprised Peyton.
“I was kind of worried about being stuck out there and not having enough to do, but it was very nice,” said Peyton. “In fact, there was plenty to do — we went snorkeling twice, the pool’s amazing, the beach was beautiful, and they even have tennis courts and boats that will take you to town.”
Peyton explained that the island, while private, is quite large, and you can spend all day exploring. When you first arrive, staff gives you a tour of the island. They also provide cute complimentary bikes so you can explore on your own!
Indulging on the Private Island
No honeymoon is complete with out a bit of indulgence! For Peyton and Taylor, that meant eating very well and relaxing together at the spa.
In fact, Peyton claims the food at Parrot Cay’s two restaurants was excellent — “probably the best we’ve ever had.” The included breakfast buffets, too, impressed, with the same level of impeccable service the couple received during their dinners.
Their other big splurge? Some time at the Parrot Cay spa.
“This was one of the highlights for me,” said Peyton. “The staff and facilities were top-notch. The spa actually looks out over the back of the island lagoon — the entire experience is unlike anything we’ve ever done before.”
Why Turks and Caicos? Astounding Beaches in an Intimate Atmosphere
There’s no place quite like Turks and Caicos. Clear blue water, incredible soft white sand, and gentle waves make for not only some of the best beaches in the Caribbean, but some of the best beaches in the world. In fact, Turks and Caicos’ Grace Bay is often listed among the world’s top 10 beaches. Beach bums and water sports enthusiasts flock to Turks and Caicos to take advantage of its refreshing, calm waters.
Turks and Caicos impressed Peyton and Taylor, too.
“Everything was so beautiful,” said Peyton. “The weather was great — it was cool at night even in the middle of summer. I’ve been to the Bahamas a good bit, but not Turks and Caicos, and the water here was definitely clearer and prettier.”
If you want to escape the crowds of other Caribbean hot spots, but don’t want to sacrifice an ounce of natural beauty, head to the world-class beaches of Turks and Caicos.
