Reach for the beach
It's never too early to start planning our summer getaways, especially when it involves a beautifully designed beach house and a private island resort in the Caribbean. Parrot Cay by COMO has just launched three new beach houses created by Bali-based architect Cheong Yew Kuan, who also designed Donna Karan's house on the island. Prices start at US$3,300 a night, and the luxurious two-bedroom, open-plan houses come with fully-equipped kitchens, spacious living and dining areas, and ensuite bathrooms complete with outdoor showers set in a garden. Enjoy your uninterrupted view of the ocean as you wait for your butler to bring you a cocktail.
