Turks and Caicos

Beach at Turks & Caicos

The Amanyara resort has the only overwater bungalows Turks and Caicos. They are not the classical ones on wooden stilts in the ocean, that you would expect. Rather they are luxurious overwater pavilions on tranquil ponds with a concrete fundament. But that doesn’t hinder you from feeling close to the water. The architecture of the Pond Pavillons and of the so called Tranquility Villas makes them seem to float above the pond. At the large private deck you can enjoy the peace that the pond and surrounding tropical gardens exude. The floor-to-ceiling glass windows will make you feel close to the outside, even when you are inside. The name of the property means “peaceful place” and you can feel that everywhere you go at this resort.

This 65 square meters (700 square feet) overwater bungalow has a beautiful view of the ponds, which calms you upon arrival. It’s location is visually enhanced by surrounding flora as well, all of which help alleviate any stress you had. Without the stress, maybe you can finally read that book you haven’t gotten around to all this time. The reading chair in the living room is perfect for this. Alternatively, you can get creative and write a few lines at the writing desk. Or maybe you want to soak in the free-standing bathtub, before resting on the king-size bed. If you feel like more action, you can participate in one of the activities that Amanyara has to offer. The rain shower in the open bathroom, which is separated by a wooden wall from the bedroom, will refresh you afterwards.

The standard rate per night is $2,030, but if you stay longer, such as 5 nights, it can drop to $1,510.

The Alcove Pavilion is larger than the Pond Pavilion, but it’s quite similar and similarly peaceful. The overwater bungalow has a living area of 79 square meters (850 square feet). The extra space of 14 square meters (150 square feet) is gained through a glass extension that adds a third person’s sleeping area. The living area is also equipped with a couch, that can turn into an additional bed.

The standard rate for an overnight stay is $2,180, but decreases as the length of stay increases, as is the case with Pond Pavilion.

The Four-Bedroom Tranquility Villa spans 480 square meters (5,166 square feet) and can accommodate up to ten people. There are four bedrooms with king-size beds, all equipped with their own ensuite bathrooms and outdoor showers.

The Four-Bedroom Beach Path Tranquility Villa is very similar to the Four-Bedroom Tranquility Villa, but has its own unique highlight. The highlight is, that it’s on a beach with a private path leading to it. Without the private beach path, you might have to drive for a while with the golf buggy to the beach. You can also enjoy the serene environment of your villa, not just from inside but also from the outdoor deck and its own private pool. The four bedrooms are equipped with king-size beds and ensuite bathrooms. There is also a separate living area and a sala where you will be served your meals by your own personal chef. With your own private chef you will be able to enjoy the best of Caribbean cuisine with local ingredients prepared according to your preferences. Like the Four-Bedroom Tranquility Villa, this villa has two four-seater golf buggies at its disposal for exploring all that Providenciales has to offer.

The regular daily rate is $9,755, but it drops as you stay longer.

The food served here is truly exquisite; our personal favorite is the seafood. Whether you dine inside in the elegant dining room or outside on one of the decks, your meal will be memorable.
