Perched atop sixty-foot cliffs, and amidst 373 acres of lush protected rainforest overlooking Playa Grande’s sugar-soft golden beach, Amanera is luxury personified. The twenty four romantically designed contemporary Casitas showcase locally-sourced Dominican art, wood and marble furnishings and indigenous Aquayo tiles. With sleek contemporary expansive terraces, each has glorious views of the ocean beyond; many with private infinity pools. In The Restaurant, with its floor-to-ceiling windows, dining options showcase the best of Mexican, Italian and Caribbean cuisine, whilst local dishes and South American classics are on the menu at Club de Playa. As Aman’s first golf-integrated property, scenic play is guaranteed with many holes skirting the ocean cliffs of the Robert Trent Jones Sr. course. Further recreations include horse riding through plantations and mangroves, game fishing, cookery classes, rum distillery visits, and an array of watersports from kayaking to kite surfing.
