The modern world can ask so much of us. The moments of peace and nourishment we offer ourselves are sometimes all too rare. Often we don’t notice just how much we need replenishing until we step out of our everyday life.
COMO Parrot Cay is an island where you can integrate all the different parts that make up that feeling of holistic balance — a re-rooting with nature, self and wellness drawn from within. This is your time to pause, breathe deep and indulge in the radical act of taking care of you.
We encourage this by making sure that every day you can combine hands-on therapies, yoga, outdoor running and ocean swims, healthy COMO Shambhala Cuisine at breakfast, lunch and dinner, and at the end of each day? The kind of sleep that can be so elusive in our modern lives.
Facing the beautiful North Caicos Channel, our COMO Shambhala spa is a quiet retreat with treatment rooms overlooking the ocean. Circulation-boosting marine algae wraps, stimulating reflexology sessions and skin-repairing facials are among the extensive menu of treatments available. Try a cleansing bath and body scrub, combining natural nut oils with the exfoliating benefits of sea salt and sugar, followed by our signature COMO Shambhala Massage.
Running in the Coconut Groves
Just after dawn, before the sun is in full swing, don your running shoes and escape down the twisting green trails that criss-cross COMO Parrot Cay. The paths will lead you through our coconut groves and banana plantations and up to the edge of the mangrove forest, where sturdy roots plunge into rich waterways, and herons stalk schools of shining fish. Finish your route at the seashore and refresh yourself with a cool ocean swim.
Yoga and Pilates
Stretch out with the cooling ocean breeze at our yoga and Pilates studio. Here you will learn what it is to breathe fully, to move with purpose, and to forge a harmony between body and mind. It’s the perfect place to allow the strains of the outside world to fade away. At the end, grab a meditation cushion to deepen your practice or to simply take a pause, centred and content.
COMO Shambhala Cuisine
No wellness programme is truly integrated without due care and attention to diet. Our menus are built around fresh, seasonal and sustainably-sourced ingredients, with COMO Shambhala Cuisine available across all our restaurants and private dining experiences. These dishes are designed to help to boost energy, balance blood-sugar levels and satisfy cravings. Our guiding philosophy is that you should leave your stay with us not feeling over-indulged, but rather nourished and healthful, having eaten often and well.
Sometimes we forget that the greatest wellness gift we can give ourselves is also the simplest — a good night’s sleep. Whether you’ve chosen an ocean-facing room, or one of our many ocean-front suites, villas or private homes, the sound of the sea is a constant companion here. As you settle into smooth cotton sheets, why not leave the window slightly ajar and you’ll soon discover there are few things more effective at lulling you to sleep.
