Amanyara is a secluded beachside resort situated on the northwest coast of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos. The property’s name combines the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’ with yara, the word for ‘place’ in the language of the Arawak Amerindians, one of the region’s first indigenous groups. Contemporary in layout and design, the resort enjoys a pristine location well removed from the more developed eastern side of the island yet is only a 25-minute drive from the international airport.
Amanyara presents 38 timber-shingled guest Pavilions, including two suites with two bedrooms, and 20 Villas, tucked along the coast or situated slightly inland overlooking tranquil ponds. Pavilions have a combined bedroom and living room, and a spacious bathroom with a freestanding bathtub and rain shower. Dramatic overhanging rooflines shade terraces on three sides and these outdoor areas are accessed through large glass doors.
Replicating the resort on a more intimate scale are the 20 Amanyara Villas each located on more than half a hectare of lush terrain overlooking reflection ponds and gardens, the ocean or the beach. Each offers three, four or five bedroom pavilions and expansive living and dining areas surrounding an infinity-edge swimming pool. Villas are serviced by personal cooks and housekeepers.
From its secluded white-sand beach to the abundant marine life of its pristine reef walls, Amanyara embraces the acclaimed Northwest Point Marine National Park, an area of 1,686 hectares that provides some of the world’s best wall and reef diving. Sea-turtle tagging offers an opportunity for guests of all ages to engage with these endangered creatures, and from December to March, whales can be seen on their annual migration.
