A look at Amanyara on the island of Providenciales

Amanyara is located deep within a 5,000-acre nature and wildlife reserve called Northwest Point, on the island of Providenciales. The Aman hotel chain provides some of the best luxury resorts as well as the most expensive in the world. Amanyara looks incredibly spacious, yet it gives you complete privacy depending on whether you are here on a romantic vacation or just to get away from the bustle of everyday life. The aesthetics of Amanyara imitates the Asian-inspired minimalistic look, with a lot of polished teak, floor-to-ceiling glass sliding doors and many cushy daybeds and alfresco lounging spots. The whole architecture of Amanyara is just spectacular and very exquisite. It’s easy to forget you are in a resort at all as it feels more like you are in zen heaven! Architect Jean-Michel Gathy tried hard to create the resort keeping in line with its natural surroundings. Instead of trimmed lawns, palm trees, and fluorescents-bright flowers is a chalky, hardscrabble landscape of cacti, Serenoa, and scrub. The seacoast is mostly iron-shore, a rough combination of lava and pitted limestone. He compensated for the harshness by creating a series of calming, reflective ponds and importing stone, wood and other materials from Indonesia and other countries. Replicating the resort on a more intimate scale are the Turks and Caicos luxury Villas. Each Villa has three, four or five bedrooms, an infinity-edged swimming pool, living and dining pavilion, an outdoor dining sala, kitchen, personal cook and housekeeper. The villas are totally private and the environment is so calm and quiet that you can’t help but relax. No surprise then that its name ‘Amanyara’ is the Sanskrit word for ‘peaceful place’.
