Meditation at boiling hole at sunset, Como Parrot Cay

With a mindset that the notion of health applies to both physical and mental wellbeing, Como Parrot Cay in Turks and Caicos employs an overall spirit of “mental quietude,” surrounded by the tranquil waters of the Atlantic. As a guest, you have access to an expert team of wellness consultants—including an Ayurvedic physician, a restorative Thai massage therapist, and a resident acupuncturist—who work with you to determine the most suitable therapies to fit your needs.

For example, for a stressed guest struggling to sleep, resident Dr. Parth Maharjan might “prescribe” ayurvedic treatments like pizichili (through which you’re bathed in lukewarm medicated oil with simultaneous massage) and shirodhara (an ancient therapy that involves pouring oil on the forehead from above). Each unique program is designed for lasting change. “Health is something that has to grow from within you,” says Dr. Maharjan—and this program aims to nurture that seed.
