Amanyara, Providenciales, Turks and Caicos
On a rocky headland in beautiful Turks and Caicos, a peppering of low-rise pavilions and villas rest amongst lush vegetation, punctuated by lazy ponds, and fringed by milky sands.
Amanyara is at one with its surroundings, it doesn't conflict, it just complements and draws on what nature has provided.
But you won't find a single rustic element here: it's contemporary, luxurious and beautiful with loft-style spaces, lighting that shimmers and reflects gracefully on glass-like pools and warming woods – the perfect accent to the columns of creamy-white stone.
Views stretch from within to infinity, and no more so than in the stunning accommodations, which have glass walls and outdoor living terraces with day beds, (with some sun decks extending over the pond).
The spa-like Serenity Villa has four treatment pavilions and is the most tranquil place for a yoga session or spa treatment. And as the sky turns every shade of pink, head for Asian and Mediterranean fare at The Restaurant or get a reality shot in the multimedia screening room.
