Overlooking Playa Grande beach from a dramatic position on the Dominican Republic’s Atlantic Ocean coastline, Amanera is surrounded by jungle and backed by the Cordillera Septentrional mountain range. Featuring 25 contemporary suites that merge with their lush setting, the property includes an Aman Clubhouse and several Aman Villas to own, and offers exclusive access to the neighbouring, clifftop Playa Grande Golf Course. Originally created by golf legend Robert Trent Jones, Sr., the fairways have been redesigned by his son Rees. Offering breathtaking ocean views, the property’s name combines the Sanskrit-derived word for ‘peace’ with era, the word for ‘water’ in Taíno.
Each of the 24 one-bedroomed Casitas enjoys unobstructed sea views from an expansive terrace, while the two-bedroomed Bay View Casa enjoys the finest setting on the property, with panoramic views of the ocean and Playa Grande Beach and a 20-metre infinity pool. Every Casita is accessed via a winding pathway through a private garden and 14 of the one-bedroom Casitas feature their own 10-metre swimming pools.
Amanera’s signature restaurant with its expansive indoor and outdoor dining areas and uninterrupted views of the mile-long, golden stretch of Playa Grande Beach. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows ensure expansive views from indoors, while beyond the restaurant and its terrace lies the curved swimming pool fringed with daybeds. Sourcing ingredients from local organic farms and fishermen, Amanera celebrates healthy, simple cuisine. Specialties include the chimichurri burger and dulce de leche , while the huge variety of freshly supplied seafood ensures superb ceviche and tiradito. Succulent marinated meats are cooked over an open fire and local breads and sourdough pizzas are freshly baked in the authentic pizza oven. To match Amanera’s food offerings, the resort offers an international wine list, a vast selection of rums, over 15 tequilas and signature cocktails.
Amanera’s Beach Club is set on the golden sands of Playa Grande Beach with expansive decks and lounging areas providing mesmerising views of the sparkling ocean. Offering elegant feet-in-the-sand dining and an authentic wood-fired oven , the Beach Club is the ideal venue for champagne breakfasts, long lazy lunches and festive beach barbecues with bonfires and torches adding to an unparallel dining experience.
Outdoor enthusiasts are spoilt for choice at Amanera, with options ranging from surfing and whale watching, to horse riding, nature walks and kayaking through Laguna Gri Gri’s mangroves and sea caves. Other activities include cooking classes, wine tasting, cigar demonstration by the best Cigar maestro in the area, children’s bespoke programs and limited access to the private Playa Grande Golf & Ocean Club located adjacent to the property.
The Amanera Wellness Casa offers three treatments rooms offering a selection of spa massages, body treatments, facials, and beauty services use locally grown plants, fruits and herbs as well as the Aman range of all-natural products.
