Amanyara offers a contemporary setting in sensual tropical harmony that befits its island host. Pavilions and villas are scattered across tropical vegetation and ponds, perched on rugged stone headlands and rests steps from an endless fine-sand alabaster beach. Located at the edge of the Caribbean Sea on the island of Turks and Caicos in the British West Indies, the resort is a private and exclusive hideaway with a turquoise Atlantic Ocean teaming with spectacular diving opportunities. It provides the perfect opportunity to savour authentic tropical paradise.

See thumbnails of all photos for this point of interest.


From its secluded white-sand beach and unusual ironshore rocky coves, to the abundant marine life of its pristine reef walls, Amanyara embraces Northwest Point Marine National Park, an acclaimed area of 1,686 hectares (4,168 acres) that provides some of the world's best wall and reef diving.

Entry to the resort is through a large reception pavilion that opens onto a central reflecting pond. Surrounded by mahogany trees, the pond is framed on one side by the Library and Boutique and on the other side by the Restaurant and Bar. The circular Bar offers a dramatic soaring roof and sea views fronted by the 50-metre (164-foot) main swimming pool and sun deck.

All accommodations are identical in layout and design yet differentiated by location. Arrival to a pavilion is via an entrance terrace that houses two daybeds. Sliding glass doors open to reveal the room's interior featuring a central king-size bed behind which sits a writing desk and chair. Beyond is a cabinet containing a personal bar with refreshments. Positioned in the corners of the room are a reading chair with a footstool and an entertainment unit including a flat screen television and DVD/CD player with surround sound. This combined bedroom and living room also opens onto two additional terraces, the first with twin banquettes for lounging or dining and the second featuring a sunken table with cushions, bolsters and two sunning mats. An overhanging roofline creates shaded outdoor areas on each pavilion's three terraces, and sliding glass doors open to catch the cooling sea breezes.

The bathroom area is separated from the main room by a decorative wooden screen and features an elegant, free-standing bathtub with adjacent ottoman. Twin vanities are located on either end along with a separate 'rain shower' room and a toilet. Leading off from the bathroom is a dressing area, storage space and personal safe. The pavilions incorporate a simple palette of colours and materials, and the floor is polished, sand-coloured terrazzo with teak inlays. Sisal matting is used throughout.

Amanyara is located on the coast of Northwest Point adjacent to Malcolm's Beach on the island of Providenciales. The island is one of the Turks and Caicos Islands, part of the British West Indies. Comprised of just eight islands and 41 small cays, of which only eight are inhabited, the territory is some 925 kilometres (575 miles) southeast of Miami and 160 kilometres (100 miles) north of the Dominican Republic, lying just outside the Caribbean Sea in the Atlantic Ocean.

The Turks and Caicos benefit from the cooling effects of trade winds from the Southeast Equatorial Current. The islands boast a subtropical climate, similar to that of the Bahamas, though slightly warmer and drier. The dry season generally runs from November to May with scattered showers from June to October. During the cooler months from December through March, the average daily high temperature is approximately 26°C (80°F) which coincides with the peak season. The hotter months are June through October, when the daily average high is 32°C (90°F).

Google Reviews

About Google Reviews: recently Google has converted their review system to require reviewers to have a proper, identifiable Google+ profile. This is a good thing, as it tends to cut down on bad reviews, both from people unwilling to stand behind their comments and fake positive reviews from the businesses themselves. Old, pre-Google+ reviews are still in the system, and will appear below as written by "A Google User". More info from Google is here.

Review:   We are staying in a villa on the island but decided to visit Amanyara for dinner having heard rave reviews for quite sometime. We set off at 5:30 to get there before sunset, and realized only way too late that the road to get there is practically undrivable and dangerous. There are incredible amounts of potholes, and unless you are arriving by Range Rover (which all of their vehicles are) do not attempt this route. However, we did survive (barely), feeling shaken and stirred and desperately in need of a drink. The woman at security told us to not take any photos while on the property, which is not the nicest way to be welcomed to a resort. When we walked through the restaurant to the bar, the entire place was silent, and felt strange. The place is beautiful, and the architecture, stunning. But if you are going for atmosphere, warmth, and fun, this place has a very weird vibe. Unlike any I can remember. And let’s just say, the prices are insane. Our bill for 6 drinks and two plates of extremely light fare was almost $300. And because we were not regular guests, it seemed the manager could not wait for us to go. I understand that beauty is important, but so is humanity, and this place lacks a very fundamental key element, which is life. Would never go back.

Review:   Beautiful place with great accommodations. Very secluded. Friendly staff. Not 100% with some of their choices in service ( setting up your own towels by the pool? ) . No personal butler. For the pricing they could do much more.
