Tucked away on the West coast of Providenciales, the capital island of Turks and Caicos, the Amanyara is a luxurious, secluded and peaceful retreat sitting upon 1000ft of white sand beach.
Luxury Timber Pavilions are nestled within the vegetation, some overlooking tranquil ponds, whilst others are located along the oceanfront, elevated above the waterline. Pool Pavilions house private outdoor swimming pools hidden in their compounds, whilst the Two Bedroom Pool Pavilion Suites include plenty of indoor lounging space, a large outdoor pool and spacious gardens, perfect for families.
Amanyara's Luxury Villas are very much the cherries on a perfectly iced cake, with individual pavilion bedrooms set around endless ponds, infinity pools, and communal pavilions, which make an ideal private dinner venue.
The main restaurant serves fine Asian and Mediterranean cuisine with an emphasis on local seafood, and fine wine pairings. Relaxed daytime dining can be enjoyed at the Beach Club, where a menu of stone baked pizzas, ceviche, salad and fresh grilled seafood is the perfect accompaniment to a beach view, cooling ocean breeze and a midday Mojito.
At the heart of the resort, an infinity pool stretches toward the ocean from its elevated perch, surrounded by loungers and Salas, whilst a sweeping arc of white sand is dotted with shaded loungers, steps from the balmy ocean shore. And should all the beach and poolside idling prove too much, the Amanyara spa is a sanctuary of relaxation, with couples treatment rooms seemingly floating on glassy lakes.
There is plenty to keep more active guests occupied too, from beach movement sessions, to yoga, tennis to beach volleyball, and water sports, including paddle boarding and hobie cat sailing. There's even a golf simulator, shuffle board and foosball, for some midday shade.
The ocean is a large part of life in Turks & Caicos, and the team at Amanyara are well equipped to help their guests explore the waves, whether snorkelling above the regenerated reef, or diving north west point - a dive site that starts at 12m depth, and disappears into the deep blue. Those of an Eco mind can also get involved with marine projects including turtle tagging, with the team of resident naturalists.
Why we love it
Fine sand, fine accommodation and fine wining and dining - Amanyara have crafted what is one of the Caribbean's most luxurious and secluded hideaways.
