If you've always wanted to say, "I'm off to spend a few days at Donna Karan's house," then a trip to The Sanctuary is in order. This Parrot Cay villa complex is owned by the designer, and it shows. Each of the two villas has four bedrooms, including one master suite with 360 degree views, an infinity pool, and a Jacuzzi to soak away your cares. What cares? If you have any, the private butler will attend to them or you can relax with a hot stone or Swedish massage at the main resort. You can go to the beach, which is right outside your villa, or take a buggy ride into the resort for watersports, restaurants, shops, Yoga or Pilates classes, tennis and more. This is the perfect place for large families or groups to gather, relax, and get just a little spoiled.
Parrot Cay is an award-winning Turks and Caicos luxury resort set on its own private island. With 1,000 unspoiled acres and a mile-long beach, Parrot Cay delivers relaxing, island-style luxury. Every room, suite and beach villa has soothing interiors, but it's the amazing service ethic, holistic therapies, yoga, diving and world-class cuisine that will keep guests coming back.
The Sanctuary is a beach property made up of two houses (each with four bedrooms) on the private island of Parrot Bay. It is situated beside the beach and has views of both the island's vegetation and ocean. The design of the villas incorporates the outdoors with the indoors. Each house has a second-floor master bedroom and living area with 360 degree water views, three other en-suite bathrooms, and an infinity pool. There is a screened-in guest pavilion, main pool, and terraces. An indoor dining area seats up to twenty. The decor features cedar, teak, walnut, and limestone elements, and artworks from around the world. Sanctuary guests receive Parrot Cay's services. There is a third house that has an additional three bedrooms to accommodate larger parties.
