Amanyara Turks and Caicos has reopened after a seasonal closure, unveiling a complete refurbishment of its communal spaces and select private villas, reinvigorating the lush, secluded oasis. From the dramatic welcome of the entrance pavilion to new culinary offerings and more ways to enjoy the stunning ocean views, no detail has been overlooked.

Set on the shores of a 7,200-hectare nature reserve on the island of Providenciales, Amanyara reopens this season reinvigorated by its collaboration with Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston Architects.

Amanyara includes 20 Villas tucked along the coast or situated slightly inland overlooking tranquil ponds, affording maximum space and the utmost seclusion and privacy, coupled with access to the resort’s luxurious amenities. All include a dedicated host, and the three- to six-bedroom villas come with the services of a private chef.

Fantastic first impressions

The resort’s newly refreshed Entrance Pavilion has been transformed by renowned landscape architect, Raymond Jungles. Large mahogany trees now line the turning circle and the resort’s central tranquility ponds offer mirror-like reflections surrounded by new lounge furniture. Wooden backgammon and chess boards add opportunities for playful relaxation, amidst an open-plan layout reconfigured to allow for enhanced privacy and a restful atmosphere.

From the pavilion, a new path draws visitors in to the kitchen and a shaded, casual dining area. A full interior renovation in the main restaurant includes eye-catching art pieces and bespoke lighting design by international designer, The Flaming Beacon. New furniture completes the warm and welcoming ambience.

Culinary delights

Guests of all tastes will welcome the reinvigorated gastronomy concepts that offer the chance to enjoy the vibrant flavors of the Caribbean alongside an array of other cuisines.

For those seeking a more casual dining experience down on the sand, the Beach Club has been upgraded, with multi-level decking shaded by new pergolas designed to maximize the panoramic views over the breathtaking natural scenery and turquoise waters. An expert mixologist is on hand to create traditional and bespoke cocktails using local and rare spirits, including the resort’s own barrel-aged selection. A new drinks menu, with after-dinner cocktails and specially crafted Amanyara aperitifs, provides the perfect evening delight.

Eager to serve guests, no matter their needs, Amanyara will cater to all dietary and lifestyle preferences, with the resort’s kitchens upgraded to incorporate a specially designed and dedicated space for preparing Kosher cuisine, using the freshest ingredients and produce, giving all guests the opportunity to enjoy a wide variety of culinary delights. 

Private villas

Elsewhere, three of the resort’s luxury private Villas have undergone renovations. Located amidst the resort’s verdant gardens and serene ponds, the spacious, multi-bedroom villas offer seclusion in serene natural surroundings, with new facilities and outdoor living spaces perfect for lounging.

Nestled on a private lakefront position and offering the upmost privacy, Villa 14 has been fully refurbished, with the addition of a private pathway leading guests directly to a new yoga pavilion and an exclusively designed water feature flowing into the private tranquility pond.

The four-bedroom Villa 8 has been completely refurbished inside and out, taking inspiration from the distinct natural beauty of the lush, surrounding landscapes. The space includes high ceilings, wood paneling, and a curated collection of contemporary, eclectic, and textured furniture indoors and an expansive outdoor terrace space complete with infinity-edge swimming pool, large Jacuzzi, and fire pit. The meticulous lighting design imbues the architecture with a gentle and inviting warm glow.

Amanyara’s signature Artists Villa, located on its very own stretch of white sand beach, is the resort’s largest and most exclusive residence, with a five-bedroom villa situated among three acres of lush private gardens, with a 108-foot infinity swimming pool directly overlooking the sea. Complementing the expansive sundecks, multiple outdoor dining areas, and recording studio are a new private world-class wellness and fitness area, an expansive steam room, and a cold plunge pool, encouraging guests to feel refreshed and renewed during their stay and beyond.
