Amanera is situated on 2,000 acres stretching across nearly seven miles of continuous Atlantic seacoast on Hispaniola’s northern shore. Amanera is the first golf-integrated Aman, situated alongside the undulating fairways and challenging greens of the Playa Grande Golf Course, with the highest number of ocean side holes in the Western hemisphere.
Each of the 25 one-bedroom Casitas enjoys unobstructed ocean vistas from an expansive terrace, outdoor seating and lounging areas, and through floor-to-ceiling windows from the spacious, high-ceilinged living and sleeping areas. Every Casita is accessed via a winding pathway through a private garden and 13 Casitas feature their own 10-meter private swimming pools.

Highlights & Reviews
- Hidden beneath the coastal main road on a remote, rainforested section of the Dominican Republic’s north shore, Amanera overlooks a mile of superb palm-backed sand (where the waves can be big). It’s well away from mainstream tourism, but excursions include hiking and mountain-biking in the rainforest, snorkelling and beach tours, cigar-making in a local restaurant, deep-sea fishing, wind- and kite-surfing (Cabarete) and whale watching (Samana, Jan-March).
- Amanera has bold, contemporary design untypical for the Caribbean – a mid-century feel updated with clean lines, where lightly-patterned Dominican ‘aguayo’ tiles, slender columns and full-height glass façades launch flying concrete roofs. Ponds and teak trim recall Aman’s spiritual home in the Far East.
- Again Aman brings something unusual for the Caribbean — service that is friendly but attentive and unregimented. The clifftop Casa Grande, with restaurant, library and cigar room, is fronted by an infinity pool. Other facilities include a spa, flood-lit tennis courts and a gym. This is Aman’s first foray into golf — the course is spectacular, par 72, 7085 yards, including 10 holes ranged along coastal cliffs. A new spa and clubhouse are due to be built.
- Generally excellent (also a relief in the islands), with many ingredients genuinely locally sourced, including a daily fresh supply from local fishermen. The main dining room, set invitingly above the bay, carries Mediterranean, mainly Italian, fare with some Caribbean dishes. The beach club offers salads, pizzas and Mexican plates. Or you can request dinner in a special location.
