Asian-inspired luxury in the Caribbean
It’s hard to imagine a place that feels more secluded and peaceful — or more stunning — than Amanyara, an ultra-luxury resort on Providenciales, one of eight inhabited islands that make up Turks and Caicos.

The remote-feeling resort is next to the 18,000-acre Northwest Point Marine National Park but is just a 25-minute drive from the isle’s airport. There’s no need to worry about a lack of things to do here, as Amanyara is brimming with activities, from snorkeling trips and whale watching to outdoor yoga and kayaking.

In truth, though, this is a place designed for guests to relax in luxury and utterly disconnect from the outside world, be it on the private half-mile white sand beach or on a villa’s quiet sun deck.

Unlike other Caribbean resorts, the look and feel of Amanyara are decidedly Asian, with an indoor/outdoor aesthetic reflected in the modern pagoda-style pavilions that dot the property.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Fitness enthusiasts will not want for activities here between the four clay tennis courts, a Pilates studio, outdoor yoga sala and fitness center. On the beach, you’ll find everything you need for an aquatic adventure: kayaks, sailboats, paddleboards, sailing catamarans and gear for snorkeling.
  • After a soak in the sun, guests can head to the spa pavilion for a variety of treatments including massages, wraps, scrubs, and facials.
  • Those looking to connect with the natural surroundings can learn more about them at the resort’s Nature Discovery Center (book a hike to explore the island on foot with an expert). Or visit the southeast end of the island’s stable to ride the friendly horses.

  • Should the tropical weather hinder outdoor excursions, you can head to the library, which is stocked with games and books galore, or head to the screening room for a movie any night of the week, popcorn included.
  • The landscaping, including the large central reflecting pool, the 164-foot black volcanic rock infinity-edge pool and the lush vegetation, play up the clean-lined Asian-inspired architecture.
The Rooms
  • The 36 stand-alone timber-shingled pavilions are enclosed by three glass walls, while the 20 villas each sit on one-and-a-half acres each.
  • All guest quarters are minimally decorated in creams and taupes and feature dramatic platform beds, and views of reflecting ponds, gardens or the ocean.
  • Pavilion bathrooms come with rain showers, large dual vanities and a free-standing bathtubs. Outdoor areas include ample amounts of teak decking with tables and chairs.
  • Villas are nothing short of extravagant with three to five separate bedroom pavilions, private swimming pools, some with outdoor showers, and ample room (about 12,000 square feet of indoor/outdoor space) to lounge around.
The Restaurants
  • The main restaurant at the luxury hotel is open to the ocean with alfresco seating beneath large mahogany trees, and an indoor air-conditioned section (both have sweeping views of the sea).
  • Expect both Asian and Mediterranean dishes, with plenty of fresh seafood options.
  • Amanyara's large bar is ideal for dining throughout the day (hello, oversized daybeds) and drinking cocktails such as the Amanyara Mojito served with a splash of champagne.
  • The range of rums on hand is impressive, some house-infused with local fruits. Bonus: There’s also a seaside eatery serving casual beach fare.
