Turks and Caicos - Two Centre with Elegant Resorts
Less than two hours apart, Miami and Turks and Caicos make a terrific two-centre holiday arrangement. The Setai, on Miami Beach in Florida, and Parrot Cay in the Turks and Caicos offer a contrasting mix of urban sophistication and tranquil island living.
Jet off across ‘the pond’ to Miami Beach, Florida’s most glamorous resort, and enjoy a few nights in the historic Art Deco District. Discover this intriguing quarter, awash with iconic sights including a colourful line-up of pastel-painted hotels, designer boutiques, glitzy restaurants and trendy hotspots along the world-famous Ocean Drive. By contrast, Lincoln Road boasts boho boutiques, cosy eateries, quirky galleries, arty festivals and the flamboyant street parades of Coconut Grove – once a hangout for hippies. The exquisitely preserved Fairchild Tropical Gardens, Country Club Prado and Mediterranean-revival mansions of Coral Gables are a little inland, while Miami’s bite-size take on Havana is Calle Ocho, where you can douse yourself with Cuban culture. Private beach access is possible from your beautiful Art Deco hotel, The Setai, whose private stretch of beach is sprinkled with sumptuous day beds, perfect for lounging in the sun and taking full advantage of the wonderful food and beverage beach service.
When you’ve had your fill of southern Florida, escape to the Caribbean islands of Turks and Caicos, to a teeny tropical island hideaway just off the coast of Providenciales. Draped with tropical greenery and ringed by swathes of pearly white beaches, Parrot Cay by COMO is an exclusive sanctuary favoured by a handful of high-profile guests and those seeking privacy, exclusivity and a generous helping of pampering. Daytime diversions range from snorkelling in the warm cerulean water and sunning on those glorious beaches, to yoga, Pilates and spa treatments at the award-winning COMO Shambhala Retreat, with expert practitioners brought in from across the globe to impart their wisdom on thankful guests. Whatever you prefer, expect lots of R&R at this most iconic Caribbean spa resort.
