Check Rates from our Partners
If you seek seclusion, peace, and tranquillity in a Zen-like atmosphere—and you're ready to pay a lot for it—this is your place. All accommodations are in cottage-like pavilions, which are furnished in an Asian minimalist style but still include TVs, DVD players, and surround-sound systems. A movie room and well-stocked library are among the few entertainment options, but small touches, such as a shoe rack at the beach and huggers to keep your bottled water cool, are welcome. No need to sign for anything here—the staff will always remember you by name. When it comes to dining, expect an Asian-influenced menu and very high prices. One thing is for certain: it's a long, pricey ride to other restaurants, not to mention other excursions. This is a place to come if you are looking for peace and quiet in a remote location on a stunning beach. Rates include the minibar (except spirits) and all long-distance phone calls.
Secluded, chic, elegant, and peaceful—the luxurious Amanyara is situated on one of the Caribbean's most beautiful islands. Water is a crucial element to the hotel's tranquility: contemporary pavilions and villas are scattered across the property, either perched right on the coast or situated inland next to placid lakes; each are equipped with day beds, a personal bar, and surround sound. Common areas are stunning, especially the infinity pool with uninterrupted views of the Caribbean. The attentive staff knows you by name and will indulge you in candlelit dinners, healing massages, photo shoots, daily snorkeling excursions, and private movie screenings on one of the best beaches in the entire region.
