‘The Sanctuary’ located on the private island of Parrot Cay, Turks & Caicos, belongs to famous fashion designer, Donna Karen. The interior is a luxurious mixture of wood, alongside natural limestone with a range of Indian and African artefacts, that Donna herself has collected on her travels of the globe.
We particularly love the beautiful infinity pool which stretches out to the azure ocean, the beach furniture is all made from beautifully weathered driftwood, settled into the powdered white sand. With 11 bedrooms and four swimming pools there is enough space for everyone to find their own piece of paradise at this property.
At The Sanctuary there is a personalised butler service, whether it’s organising a castaway picnic or preparing a meal for the family, they are at your service. If you are looking for a calm and tranquil escape, look no further.
