Amanera , Playa Grande, Dominican Republic
Calling all Aman devotees... your next pilgrimage awaits!
Overlooking Playa Grande, the Dominican Republic's most picturesque beach, Amanera is perched atop 60-foot cliffs, wrapped in 2000 acres of verdant jungle, set amongst landscaped gardens between the beach and golf course, and backed by the dramatic Cordillera Septentrional Mountain Range.
Even dining here is an adventure: with The Restaurant, Club de Playa on the beach, and the Clubhouse restaurant at the golf course; plus cooking lessons, cocktail tutorials, or private beach dinners with a special seafood barbecue menu.
Twenty-five free-standing standing casitas (13 with their own pool) all offer cool living spaces, incredible unobstructed views and vast terraces, not to mention every amenity you need.
Days of peaceful R&R are split between Club de Playa (the laid-back beach club), tucked into a sandy cove on Playa Grande beach, the restaurant, full-service spa, poolside at your villa; golfing on the first fully integrated Aman course (known to many as 'the Pebble Beach of the Caribbean'), originally designed by golf legend Robert Trent Jones Sr and refreshed with son Rees Jones' own designs; or hiking into the jungle with the passionate and knowledgeable guides (well worth the walk for views and wild passion fruit growing alongside the trails alone). And for smaller fans of Aman, an exciting collection of excursions, programmes and activities for 5-11 year-olds, and private watersports classes for every ability await.
