Amanyara, meaning ‘peaceful place’, is a secluded beachside resort from the fabulous Aman hotel group, situated on the island of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos. The property’s white-sand beach and rocky coves border Northwest Point Marine National Park, acclaimed for some of the world’s best wall and reef diving. This truly stunning resort prides itself on its exceptional levels of service and, with our experience of Aman, we know you won’t want to leave.
Contemporary in layout and design, Amanyara’s 38 timber-shingled pavilions enjoy extensive outdoor space and views of the ocean, tranquil ponds or coastal vegetation. All have entrance terraces, wooden sundecks and king-size beds. Overhanging eaves shade terraces on three sides of each Pavilion, accessed via floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a combined bedroom and living area. Some offer private pools and two bedrooms.
There are 20 Amanyara Villas with three distinct outlooks, each on over half a hectare (1.5 acres) and serviced by a chef and a host.

Pavilions are nestled in coastal vegetation, overlooking ponds or the waters of Northwest Point Marine Reserve. Overhanging eaves shade terraces on three sides of each Pavilion, accessed via floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open to a combined bedroom and living area. Some offer private pools and two bedrooms.
Pool Pavilion Suites have views of the coastal vegetation and their own private 59ft lap pool. Each is surrounded by an expansive terrace, private walled garden and has two bedrooms plus a children’s room. A large living/dining room, pantry and bar area complete the suite. Outside a four-seater solar-powered buggy is at your disposal.
Villas either overlook ponds and gardens, or the ocean, or have direct beach access. They all have black-tiled infinity-edged swimming pools with extensive hardwood sundecks and outdoor showers and range in size from three to six bedrooms. As well as extensive living and dining areas they have kitchens, outdoor dining salas, two four-seater solar-powered buggies and a private chef and host.
Our favourite is The Amanyara Pavilion, elevated above the waterline with dramatic ocean views and offering a private T-shaped pool, glassed-in extension overlooking a private garden and a teak lounging sala ideal for watching sunsets.
The Restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner and serves classic Asian and modern Mediterranean dishes with fresh seafood a speciality. It is air-conditioned with both indoor and outdoor seating, and has a terrace and deck with sweeping ocean and reflected pond views.
The Bar is open all day and serves light meals and refreshments. Its circular design with a centrally positioned bar and oversized daybeds means you can make the most of the panoramic ocean and pool views.
The Beach Club is also open throughout the day and serves casual beach fare with Latin American and Mediterranean flavours. There is a stone hearth oven and the club is set on a dune at the southern end of the beach, where it hosts cooking demonstrations and wine/rum tastings.
The spa has four treatment rooms, its own 108ft swimming pool, a relaxation pavilion and a boutique. It offers an extensive spa menu of massages and beauty treatments using organic Aman skincare products.
A pilates studio is fully fitted with reformers and other Pilates-specific equipment, which can be used to perform the Erika Bloom-method. An outdoor yoga sala is adjacent to the pool.
The fitness centre has a full range of cardiovascular and strength-training equipment with personal training programmes available. The Club House has four floodlit Har-tru clay tennis courts, a multi-sport field, volleyball court and golf simulator.
The hotel’s swimming pool is 164ft x 26ft and has uninterrupted ocean views. It is wrapped in an expansive timber deck with sun loungers and is framed by two lounging salas with a third located closer to the oceanfront.
A Nature Discovery Centre provides hands-on learning experiences for adults and children with programmes designed by the American Museum of Natural History’s Science and Nature Departments.

A boutique showcases the region’s best art, jewellery and handicrafts. Destination books, resort wear and conveniences are also available.
With a 27km (17 mile) barrier reef that runs the length of the island’s northeast coastline, Providenciales provides a host of world-class dive sites. Located directly in front of the resort are the remarkable coral reef walls of Northwest Point Marine National Park.
Snorkelling can be enjoyed off the beach at Amanyara. The sandy bottom declines gradually until the reef wall drops to 2,100m (6,888ft). A complimentary guided snorkelling trip departs daily from the beach.
Providenciales and its neighbouring islands and cays boast some of the finest fishing grounds in the Caribbean. Notable among potential catches are the elusive bonefish and the Atlantic blue marlin.
The Amanyara Turtle Initiative helps safeguard the green and hawksbill turtle populations of the islands. Join expert naturalists to tag and release turtles in the wild.
Between the months of February and April, migrating humpback whales can be spotted just offshore from Amanyara.
