Amanyara, Turks and Caicos
Perched on the Northwest tip of Providenciales – locals call the island Provo – sits the luxury Caribbean hotel of Amanyara (peaceful place). Amanyara is nestled within a 2,025 hectare (5,000 acre) nature and wildlife reserve of the Turks and Caicos, with the widely-acclaimed reefs of the Northwest Point Marine Park just offshore. Amanyara derives from 'aman', the Sanskrit word meaning peace and 'yara' meaning place in the language of the Arawak Indians, one of the region's main indigenous peoples. Luxury tour operators highly recommend this 5 Star Caribbean vacation resort for its isolated location in a pristine environment.
Amanyara’s beauty and tranquility are well removed from much of the development in the eastern Turks & Caicos. Your transfer to the resort is a breathtaking journey along a narrow coastal road that rises to a hill and then falls away into a wide plain covered with native bushes and miniature trees.
Entry to Amanyara, one of the top luxury resorts in the Caribbean, is through a grand reception pavilion that opens before a formal reflecting pond that is landscaped with picturesque trees. The impressive pond is framed by the library and boutique on one side across from a dining room and terrace on the other. The terrace offers you sweeping views of the half-mile, white sand beach.
Guests can rest assured that each of the 40 timber shingled pavilions are identical in layout and design, with three categories based on location and view: Pond Pavilions, Ocean Pavilions and Beach Pavilions. When you arrive at your pavilion, you will step into the entrance terrace that houses two daybeds. Sliding glass doors open to reveal the pavilion’s interior, a central king-sized bed behind which sits a writing desk and chair where you can record your thoughts and memories. Beyond lies a cabinet that contains a personal bar with refreshments and a safe for your most precious belongings. In the corner of the room, you can relax in a reading chair with footstool or stretch out in front of an entertainment console housing a television with DVD player with surround sound. When you are ready to explore, there are two additional terraces you can access from the bedroom and living room. The bathroom is separated by a decorative wooden screen and features an elegant free-standing bathtub with an adjacent ottoman.
For larger groups, there are 18 Villas comprised of three bedroom pavilions overlooking one of the resort's ponds. Bedroom pavilions are centered around a swimming pool and close by are two pavilions for lounging and dining. Each Villa is staffed with maids and transportation is provided within the resort by way of a complimentary golf cart.
The cuisine on offer in the Dining Room includes a bountiful selection of Asian and Mediterranean fare with an emphasis on seafood from around the Turks & Caicos. Just beyond the Dining Room, leading to the swimming pool, is the Lounge. Amanyara’s famous Lounge includes a central service bar with the unique feature being a number of oversized lounging day beds positioned around the perimeter. Located on a dune above the southern end of the sweeping, powdery white sand beach is the Beach Club, providing informal dining throughout the day. In the evenings, you can return to the Beach Club’s intimate and informal area for beach barbeques.
The pool is located within an expansive terrace that offers up uninterrupted views of the Atlantic Ocean. Two lounge pavilions on either end of the pool stand by shallow entries to the pool for relaxed water lounging. A third lounge pavilion is located beyond the pool and closer to the oceanfront. Pairs of sun lounges are posted along the timber deck and an outdoor shower is on hand for a quick rinse. The Fitness Centre includes a fully-equipped gym next to two tennis courts that feature flood-lighting for professional nighttime play.
Activities include scuba diving, beach watersports, snorkelling, and fishing. Don’t forget to sample the spa treatments provided by Amanyara's team of highly skilled therapists. Golf enthusiasts will be thrilled to know that the Providenciales Golf Club is located a short 30-minute drive from Amanyara and is rated amongst the top 10 courses in the Caribbean, according to Luxury Caribbean wholesalers.
