Amanera Playa Grande can be found on nearly two thousand acres of land near the Atlantic coast by Hispaniola’s northern shores. There are 25 one-bedroom casitas at this beautiful resort, and they all look out towards the ocean, while offering unobstructed views through the floor to ceiling windows. Guests will enjoy their outdoor seating areas, as they will allow them to enjoy the fresh ocean air at any time of the day or night. Approximately half of the casitas feature their own private swimming pools too.
Guests staying in any of the casitas will find that they can be easily reached via a pathway that leads through private gardens, offering each guest that privacy that they deserve.
Golfers, and even non-golfers, will love the challenge that the eighteen holes offer at the Playa Grande Golf Course. Many of those holes are near the ocean and this course actually has the most oceanside holes within the entire western hemisphere.
The main dining room offers mostly Italian cuisine with a few Mediterranean and Caribbean dishes added on the menu and each one is made with the freshest ingredients. Lighter fare like salads, pizza, and Mexican options can be enjoyed down at the beach club.

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.
