Dreaming of Turks & Caicos
Turks and Caicos Islands hides at the southern tip of the Bahamian Archipelago. It boasts some of the world's most spectacular coral reefs, and has built itself into a true luxury-tourism destination. With help from our partners Luxury Experiences Turks & Caicos, we bring you this dreamy itinerary.
Recommended Hotel: Amanyara
“Amanyara”, which means “peaceful place” – is located on the secluded western shore of Providenciales in the Turks and Caicos Islands. Amanyara is nestled between ever-evolving rocky outcrops, while its white-sand beach stretches half a mile along the coast, dipping into the turquoise waters of the Caribbean. A nature lover’s paradise, Amanyara sits on a promontory on the western shore of Providenciales, Turks & Caicos. Backed by a vast wilderness of protected parkland, the resort looks out over the pristine reefs of Northwest Point Marine National Park
Day One: Private Azimut Luxury Motor Yacht
The best way to experience Turks & Caicos is to be on the water! Enjoy a day out on the tourquoise waters an 80 ft luxury motor yacht where you’ll be completely spoiled for the day, drowned in luxury, fine food, and special activities catered to your preferences. Relax as you coast to a private island for a picnic lunch on the sand, and if you wish, fish for big game or snorkel.
Day Three: Rise with a Morning Yoga Session with Amanyara’s Resident Specialist
Set around a tranquil pond, Amanyara’s Spa encompasses four treatment pavilions, a relaxation pavilion and an outdoor yoga sala. Private sessions covering a range of techniques are available, including restorative yoga and guided breathing and meditation.
The Fitness Centre features a Pilates studio and cardio and resistance training equipment. The Club House also has four tennis courts, a multi-sport field and volleyball court.
Day Five: Dive the Barrier Reef
A 27 kilometer barrier reef along the northeast shore offers some to Turks & Caicos' best diving. An array of reefs and wall formations offer diving opportunities for all levels, and snorkelling can be enjoyed directly from the beach at Amanyara.
The pristine waters of Providenciales are some of the region’s most diverse – a vibrant underwater wonderland of coral reefs running parallel to Amanyara’s secluded 800-metre beach. Hawksbill turtles, humpback whales, bonefish and hundreds of migratory bird species are frequent visitors to the waters. On land, exploration safaris delve into the dry tropical forest and coastal ecosystem
Day Seven: Sip Sundowners Under the Soaring Ceiling of the Circular Bar
At The Restaurant, guests can dine either indoors and air-conditoned or outside on the central pond. Freshly caught seafood – from red snapper to tuna and grouper – is the focus, complemented by organic produce from the resort’s aquaponic vegetable garden. The Beach Club serves raw food dishes as well as cuisine baked in a stone hearth oven
A refreshing drink after a long day in the sun, the Basil Dazzle –comprising basil, vodka, lime and ice – embodies the simple beauty of the beach and landscape
