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).

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:   AmanYara is not for everyone. It is a very quiet place with unmatched privacy and service. This place is beautiful and simple. It blends with nature and the people who work here know when you need them and when do not. There is something for everyone. Swimming, snorkeling, diving sailing, work outs of all types spa and the list keeps going. We have been here twice, it has been a God send in our relationship. It truly helps us to reconnect to each other. And yes it is not for everyone. It is very expensive, my wife and I are so blessed to be able to be here. I hope that you, who are reading this will be able to come here and see the but and experience the magic. You will not be disappointed, I promise. MSD

Review:   This property is truly stunning, it looks just as amazing in real life as it does in the photos. The resort lost a lot of points from us because of the food. I don't expect Michelin quality food on an island but most of our meals here were no better than airport food. At this price point there is just no excuse for that. I appreciated that the wifi skipped the captive portal-- there is no interstitial page where you have to click "I agree" or type in a room number before you use the internet. The TV was also just a regular Samsung smart TV without any annoying hotel software slowing things down and had easily accessible ports in the back which made watching a movie after dark easy. The internet was good enough to stream Netflix in HD with no skips as well, though the resort was about half full at the time.

Review:   Beautiful, Peaceful, Some Amazing Staff with Outstanding Service and A+ Luxury!! Amanyara knows how to create the dream vacation you have been seeking. We were looking for secluded & private area to sleep and relax & we found the best of all things on your dream vacation list. Biking, catamaran, paddle boarding, Conrad paying attention to our every need while relaxing at the beach with drinks and food etc. The trip began with Fitzroy picking us up with a playlist specifically for our anniversary , a fantastic personality and welcoming demeanor! He's the best! Claudin, took care of us at the beach with spontaneous beginner paddleboarding lessons, then at the last minute we wanted to go snorkeling off the point he was about to get off work & made it happen for us!! He even drove us on the boat and just made our day. 5 stars for Claudin, Conrad & "Fitz"!! Love them. Garret was very attentive as well:) He left us a sweet note and bottle of our new favorite Rose' and our room decorated with rose petals. Everyone was amazing. We loved it so much we are going back!!! We looked at other places and realized we were just looking for another Amanyara.
