A long and dusty dirt road lined with wild vegetation and crumbled limestone rocks sets a perfect scene for guests arriving at Amanyara. Nestled into an 18,000-acre nature reserve on Providenciales’ rugged northwest coast, the secluded seaside resort is a peaceful, nature- and wellness-focused retreat equipped with all of the luxuries the revered Aman brand is known for.
Minimalist architecture combined with a soothing color palette of cream, gray, and umber allows nature to take center stage. A grand reception hall with soaring columns, a thatched ceiling, and a live edge bench leads to an artful reflection pond that functions as an ever-changing work of art as it mirrors the surrounding mahogany trees, passing billowy clouds, and pink-hued sunsets. Freestanding open-air gazebos with timber-covered eaves and shuttered doors line the pond’s perimeter and provide sweeping ocean views while appearing to float amid the landscape. The resort’s sprawling grounds, airy pavilions, and discreet atmosphere make it feel, at times, like you’ve got the place all to yourself.
Tucked away off a small meandering road flanked by lush greenery, the guest quarters—36 stand-alone one-bedroom pavilions and 20 roomy villas ranging from two to six bedrooms—were designed to feel like a private refuge. Each structure bestows unique views of the ocean, serene reflecting ponds, or private swimming pools. The pavilions, framed with floor-to-ceiling glass windows on three sides, foster a deep connection to the surrounding flora and fauna. Timber canopy beds dressed in cream linen fabric make it nearly impossible to get out from under the cozy duvet covers; generous soaking tubs and gorgeous walk-in showers clad in moody ceramic tiles will surely make you linger a little longer than usual. But once you finally emerge from your abode, there’s plenty of leisure to be found nearby.
A holistic vision of wellness combined with top-notch facilities and a spectacular natural environment practically guarantees a perpetual state of bliss. Designed as an oasis for nature enthusiasts and wellness-seekers, the resort encourages guests to seek relaxation however it most appeals to them, from nature walks around the reserve and private fitness instruction to rejuvenating spa treatments and transformative expert-led retreats. The expansive 120-acre property overlooks the pristine coral reefs and bright turquoise waters of North West Point Marine National Park—a picturesque backdrop for eco-friendly water sports like stand-up paddle boarding and scuba diving. Immersive learning experiences can be found at the beachside Nature Discovery Centre where guided excursions like snorkeling in the resort’s coral nursery educate guests about the surrounding ecosystems and coastal conservation.
