Amanyara is a luxury all-inclusive resort that’s located on the remote west coast of Providenciales, and is part of the Aman family of resorts and residences. It’s flanked by the Northwest Point Marine National Park on the ocean side, and by the Frenchman’s Creek Nature Reserve to the south. The beautiful Malcolm's Road Beach fronts the northern side of the resort.
This accommodation features a low-density layout and design, with secluded pavilions and villas interspersed with ponds and vegetation. The villa accommodations vary in size from 3 to 6 bedrooms, and the pavilions are offered in either a one room or larger two bedroom family arrangement.
Amenities include the resort’s concierge service, which assists with activity planning and any guest requests.
The region surrounding Amanyara is a highly scenic, with coastal, tropical dry forest and wetland environments, and there’s no other development to mar the view.
To the south of Amanyara is the Frenchman’s Creek Nature Reserve, a complex and beautiful system of marine and tidal wetlands, fresh water ponds, and Karst features.
A differing aspect from the Grace Bay Beach area of Providenciales (where many of the island’s resorts are found) is the proximity of the marine wall and deep water off the Caicos Islands. The Turks and Caicos Islands are situated on a submerged plateau, and the transitions from the shallow water on top of the plateau to the great depths off it is often quite drastic. At some sites this change is a sheer wall, with the depth dropping from 50 feet (15M) to almost 7 thousand (2100M) over a short distance.
The wall is located close off the Northwest Point and Malcolm’s Road coastline, and as such these areas experience large marine life and the deep blue water not seen at the island’s other beaches.
As the deep Atlantic isn’t far off from Amanyara, it’s possible to spot pods of dolphins in the distance, and migrating humpback whales during the winter months.
Underwater visibility is also stellar, and perfect for diving and snorkelling.
Amanyara is about tranquillity, so you won’t find any casinos, extravagant nightlife or water parks. The activities at the site are centred on nature and relaxation.
A complimentary guided snorkelling trip is also offered everyday (weather permitting).
Walking trails lead a unique tropical dry forest setting, and there’s a nature discovery centre, which offers insights on the flora and fauna of the Turks and Caicos, and hands-on involvement with turtle and reef projects.
Amanyara is home to a full-service spa (4 separate spa pavilions located next to a tranquil reflecting pond), a yoga and Pilates studio, a fitness centre, and tennis courts. Personal trainers are onsite assist and advise on workouts.
The restaurants at Amanyara features Mediterranean and Asian inspired dishes, with indoor, open air terrace, and beach dining. Fresh Caribbean seafood is a central focus on their menu.
The resort is also home to an organic hydroponic farm which raises produce, and incorporated with freshly caught seafood, the dishes and food at Amanyara are created with some of the freshest ingredients on the island.
Private dining can also be arranged if preferred.
Their signature circular bar offers drinks and cocktails, with exceptional views of the western shore of Providenciales.
As is usual, online prices typically exclude the 12% government accommodation tax. Check before booking if this has been included in the price.
The resort operates a fleet of Land Rovers for guest transport, and includes complimentary airport pick up and drop off, either to the Providenciales International Airport (PLS), or the one of the island’s FBOs in the case of arrival by private aircraft.
Transport by the resort to other locations on Providenciales can be arranged, however it may incur extra fees.
Beautiful and remote, this beach offers much to explore. Due to being close to the edge of the Caicos Islands plateau and the deeper water, this beach sometimes experiences breaking surf off the beach and has a bit more of a rugged appearance than the other Providenciales beaches. For the adventurous, great snorkeling can be found at many spots here.
