Don’t be deterred by the Dominican Republic’s reputation, Amanera is located well away from the more mainstream areas of the island. This is a jaw-dropping Caribbean property made up of enormous one and two bedroom casitas spread amongst the jungle-covered hillside overlooking pretty Playa Grande. Our favourites rooms are the Amanera Casitas with their prime cliff-top position and fabulous beach views from the terrace and plunge pool.
Set just off the main coastal highway, the Amanera overlooks the famous Playa Grande beach in the Dominican Republic. The turquoise Caribbean waters, emerald green rainforest and white sand are a simply unmissable sight.
With twenty-four rooms and one two-bedroom villa, Amanera is small and peaceful. Featuring bold, contemporary designs, lofty ceilings and warm wooden finishes there is something wonderfully unique about the décor, and although not typically Caribbean, it encompasses its surroundings perfectly.
The Casa Grande Restaurant is found in the central hub of the hotel. Offering Mediterranean dishes with a hint of Caribbean flair, each meal is its own indulgent feast. Dishes are created using locally sourced food and daily caught fish.
Removed from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas, the Amanera is secluded but not isolated with a wide number of activities available nearby. Enjoy a whale-watching trip, learn the Dominican art of cigar rolling or play a round of golf.
