Offering warm temperatures throughout the year the Caribbean is a perfect year round destination. With an average of 9 hours sunshine a day the peak season runs from December through to April which is the dry season when you can expect very little rainfall. May to November are the slightly wetter months where you will find an increase in rainfall as the summer season goes on and with that some humidity, however the Summer months are still a great time to travel as the temperatures are hot and the rain tends to come in short heavy bursts but not all day long. The wettest months with the most humidity are September and October and these are the most probable months for hurricanes to occur in the region although many islands have not experienced hurricanes for a number of years. The average daily temperatures range from the mid-seventies in the winter months and mid-eighties in the summertime.

Aman Resorts brings its ultra-luxe style to this beautiful Caribbean location in the Turks and Caicos. On the coast of Northwest Point adjacent to Malcolm’s Beach, one of the island's most secluded beaches, Amanyara is a water lover's paradise.
Amanyara forms part of the world-renowned Aman portfolio of hotels. Its name is derived from the Sanskrit word of the indigenous Arawak people, meaning “peaceful place” and this is reflected in the resort’s isolated position on top of a dramatic headland on the north west coast of Providenciales, thus ensuring the glistening beach remains private and exclusive.
There are 38 timber-framed Pavilions of contemporary design nestled amongst the lush vegetation, on the edge of the tranquil ponds or along the oceanfront. Pavilions overlooking the ponds have a timber sundeck extending over the edge of the water and those located on the oceanfront have pathways down to the sea. All are designed the same with large glass doors that can be opened on all sides to catch the cooling sea breezes.
The Restaurant serves a selection of Asian and Mediterranean cuisine with an emphasis on local seafood. You can enjoy a choice of dining settings – outdoors on the terrace or inside with air-conditioning, both areas have wonderful views of the beach and beyond. The Bar is located near the swimming pool where you will find a number of oversized daybeds for lounging and a spacious terrace where you can enjoy a refreshing cocktail or light lunch.
All Pavilions are identical in layout and design yet differentiated by location. Arrival to a Pavilion is via an entrance terrace that houses two daybeds. Sliding glass doors open to reveal the interior featuring a central king-size bed. Positioned in the corners of the room are a reading chair with a footstool and an entertainment unit including a flat screen television and DVD/CD player with surround sound. This combined bedroom and living room also opens onto two additional terraces, the first with twin banquettes for lounging or dining and the second featuring a sunken table with cushions, bolsters and two sunning mats. An overhanging roofline creates shaded outdoor areas on each of the three terraces, and the doors open wide to catch the cooling sea breezes. The bathroom area is behind a decorative wooden screen and features an elegant, freestanding bathtub with adjacent ottoman. Twin vanities are located on either end along with a separate rainshower and toilet. The Pavilions incorporate a simple palette of colors and materials, and the floor is polished, sand-colored terrazzo with teak inlays.
There are also 20 Amanyara Villas with three distinct outlooks, over the ponds and gardens, ocean or with beach access. Each is situated on 1.5 acres of land and is serviced by a chef and villa host.

Your journey to Amanyara starts with a trip in one of their luxury land rovers and when you arrive, you will immediately feel relaxed! There is such a sense of peace and serenity in the whole place that it would be impossible not to end your stay feeling totally chilled. All of the rooms and villas offer complete privacy - you really feel like you are in your own little sanctuary. When I was there, I enjoyed an eco-hike around the gardens, a beach workout with a difference and a fabulous massage in the Spa. The food was superb - the lobster pizza at lunchtime can definitely be recommended! The staff will tend to your every need and ensure that your stay is a comfortable and special one.

Picked up by a fleet of immaculate white land rovers all bearing the license plate of Amanyara, we arrived shortly before sunset at what seemed the tip of the world but was in fact a short 20 minute drive from the civilization of Grace Bay. Nestled in an 18,000 acre nature preserve, the resort stretches along a kilometer of soft powdery beach, tiny hidden sandy coves where the iron shore changes the landscape before finishing again on an endless beach. Amanyara means peaceful place and not only is the architecture a work of art but the location is sensational. Private pools, dramatic ocean views, tranquil pond pavilions, soaring ceilings, teak decks that stretch to eternity, cathedral buildings of timber and glass seem suspended in space as the light disappears at dusk and the Aman world is illuminated by candles and illusion. 40 Resort Pavilions and 20 Private villas are all crafted from the finest materials, some with private black volcanic pools and others with tranquil pond views or dramatic seascape back drops. The service is unparalleled whether you have a personal butler or the delightful staff to look after your every whim.
Aman elves are there around every corner, you feel them; they know when you want something as if by osmosis but then disappear before you can even remember they have been there at all. We had a magnificent dinner in our villa with our personal chef Bar B Qing every conceivable delicacy one could dream off, twinned with a fusion of Asian inspired salads, and freshly grilled Mediterranean vegetables and delicious fruits. Whether you ate in your villa, dined in the glorious restaurant overlooking the sea side by side with the most dramatic bar or sipping ice cold rose and choosing a fresh pizza cooked in their pizza oven to order in the casual beach bar and grill - there is something to enchant everyone.
Their beach, water based activities and snorkeling which we did each day was a treat, the Spa somewhere to lose yourself and never leave and should you simply wish to sit by their magnificent pool on the teak deck overlooking the ocean you could die a happy man. If you wish to have your own pavilion or villa with a pool they are there for the taking but should you choose a water or sea view without private pool their beach and resort pool with timber sun-deck will not disappoint.
Amanyara is an experience and this was simply sublime. The million dollar question is how soon can I return to the Turks & Caicos islands? Hidden away from much of the commercialism of the Caribbean, this was a discovery I am not sure I want to share.
