Expert Review

When Amanyara opened in Provo in 2006, its goal was to be different from everywhere else. Amanresorts’ first –and only – Caribbean property forswore 12-mile Grace Bay Beach, and built instead on 99 acres off Northwest Point, alongside an 6.5-square-mile marine national park and comparatively modest half-mile beach. This decision allowed Amanyara to focus on its other goal: making sure its guests really relax. By all accounts, this has been a monumental success. Maybe it’s the Zen-like calm you’ll feel after a night’s sleep in a king-sized platform bed under a 16-foot timber ceiling, where the sweeping views from the towering glass doors around each pavilion will make waking up feel like you’re already floating. Or maybe it’s the fact that if you make it outside, you won’t need to go farther than your own three private sundecks, where you’ll easily find enough daybeds and couches to try a new spot every few hours.  Stroll past the reflecting pools and restaurant for the chance to collapse into a 164-foot black volcanic stone pool. You can amble past the wild sea grape and locust berry to the beach, or visit the 13,000-square-foot Serenity Villa spa. In addition to having the only Har-Tru tennis courts in Turks and Caicos and a 30-seat screening room, Amanyara’s Dive Pavillion caters exclusively to its guests, and has the extraordinary advantage of being just a five-minute boat ride from the dive sites at Northwest Point Marine National Park. The main resort consists of 40 pavilions, some with private pools, and all with deep soaking tubs, LCD TVs and DVD players, and complimentary Wi-Fi, phone calls, and minibar.
