Reflecting pools, spectacular panoramic views, and open spaces create a peaceful haven for relaxation and indulgence at this authentic tropical hideaway located at the edge of the Caribbean Sea on the island of Turks and Caicos. Lounging was our favorite pastime between luxurious swims in the infinity pool, sandcastle creations, board game extravaganzas, and food indulgences. The Amanyara is a secluded, elegant resort that is perfect for a romantic getaway, a holiday for a family of three, or a group family retreat.
Since there are only two options for accommodation, pavilion rooms or private villa homes, the living space is ideal for couples or small families. The pavilion rooms are all studio-like spaces with a king size bed. A family of three can comfortably live in this space and you can request to have a twin bed brought to the room for your child. If you are traveling with other families, look into splitting the rental cost of a private villa home. Each villa has a large living and dining pavilion, outdoor dining sala, 3-5 separate freestanding pavilions, a pool and fully equipped kitchen. And if that isn’t enough, each villa comes with a personal chef and housekeeper to take care of all your family’s needs. The villa’s layout is ideal for groups of families who like to travel together or a perfect venue to host a large family.
Built on a nature reserve, the Amanyara embraces its natural environment. The raw beauty of this place is overshadowed by the magnificence of the crystal clear turquoise water and perfect powder white sand. Although this resort is clearly designed for a honeymoon or romantic getaway, the staff and guests were very sweet and gracious to Charles and the other kids at the resort.
With tennis courts, sailing, fishing, snorkeling and a library full of board games, we played hard during the day. Once Charles was asleep, the crew and I would make our way over to the impressive 30-leather seat movie theatre to indulge in a movie, some tasty popcorn and drinks.
It was easy to relax, pamper yourself and indulge in the island life at the Amanyara. We left the island smiling and simply thankful that we got to experience such an exquisite place.
