56 Rooms

Amanyara is located on the coast of Northwest Point adjacent to Malcolm’s Beach on the island of Providenciales (or Provo as it is referred to locally). The island is one of the Turks and Caicos Islands, part of the British West Indies. The resort derives its name from aman, the Sanskrit word for ‘peace’, and yara, the word for ‘place’ in the language of the Arawak Amerindians, one of the region’s first indigenous peoples. It enjoys a pristine location well removed from much of the development on the eastern side of the island. Entry to the resort is through a large reception pavilion that opens onto a central reflecting pond. Surrounded by mahogany trees, the pond is framed on one side by the Library and Boutique and on the other side by the Restaurant and Bar. The circular Bar offers a dramatic soaring roof and sea views fronted by the 50-metre (164-foot) main swimming pool and sun deck.

Retreat Projects

Nature discovery centre

The newly opened Nature Discovery Centre at Amanyara offers an opportunity for both adults and children to learn more about the unparalleled marine environment and unique plants and animals in Turks and Caicos through various Naturalist Programs created by the onsite Naturalist, Lindsay, together with various teachers from the American Museum of Natural History's Science and Nature Department.

Amanyara's Turtle Initiative

Amanyara’s Nature Discovery Centre has launched the Amanyara Turtle Initiative, with the funding, capture, satellite tagging and release of Taino, a sub-adult green turtle. The work is part of the Turks and Caicos Islands Turtle Project, a collaborative initiative involving the Turks and Caicos Islands Department of Environmental and Coastal Resources, the University of Exeter and coordinated by the Marine Conservation Society. The satellite tag will provide information never before attained about the migrations of these turtles. In previous years, the Turtle Project focused on tagging adult turtles, but this year’s project involves 3 sub-adult green turtles, Taino being one of them, and is the first study of its kind in the Turks and Caicos Islands. This project, combined with future plans to offer Amanyara guests turtle tagging field trips and workshops with expert turtle scientists, and possible adoption of hatchling turtles for the Nature Discovery Centre, is part of a new environmental stewardship program at the resort.
